#47 ETF2L Admins: Blackmail, Bias and Censorship in TF2 General Discussion
AdjeAdmins (kaylus in particular) have handed out bans/been wanting to hand out bans for dumber reasons in the past. Found this old pastebin of Hugo arguing with kaylus because he wanted to ban my entire team for not trying their absolute hardest in a game of highlander (lol) when there are numerous examples of teams taking the piss against other teams not being punished whatsoever


Hard to take most non anti-cheat related bans seriously when people like Middle get banned for killbinding mid offi as a joke. Not sure what goes on in the heads of league admins sometimes (AC admins doing god's work though)


The original purpose of the "don't throw officials" was around the time Saloon.tf was becoming a thing, and I believe the league was still trying to attract potential sponsors at the time, so it was mainly a rule about trying to prevent match fixing more than anything else and uphold some kind of....professionalism? So in my view if teams want to off-class and get rolled that's their perogative. I think somewhere along the way Admins looked at the rules and forgot the original purpose of why they exist, a good exercise for them would be to re-check the rules and see if they are fit for purpose.

If saloon.tf or betting items isn't really a thing anymore there is no purpose of the rule unless you really care about the integrity factor, but in a league where you can literally give opponents a default win if you don't want to play them and give a free 6 points to a team you could have taken points from and muddle the standings up, then I don't see the point. If a team wants to throw a match they can give a default win or they can play for 1 hour and get rolled and maybe have a bit of fun on the way.

#46 ETF2L Admins: Blackmail, Bias and Censorship in TF2 General Discussion

I can't really speak for Kaylus or ETF2L or the history and I do lack a lot of context, but it is very curious that a guy got a 2 year ban after never being banned before for anything (at least his team history page does not show multiple instances of being removed by ETF2L staff) so for that to be justified you had to have had multiple warnings and probably a couple of bans already or done/said some fucked up shit like doxxing someone or really being vile/threatening with threats of violence so yeah what did Wicc do? There used to be some sort of system of warnings and ban lengths in the league to stop dramatic stuff like occuring, has that disappeared?

I get the feeling this is easily resolved issue by reducing the ban or posting evidence to support the fact severity of a 2 year ban is justified, this isn't an AC case so what is there to hide?

Also whilst we're on the subject of ETF2L, can we revise the off-class rule, it is a very bizarre rule to see players banned from playing Engineer in Mid in 6v6 because they played Prem HL. Maybe make the point system more flexible for non-cookie cutter classes, then that way actual Open/Low players won't be sandbagged still but Div 2 HL players can still enjoy Sniping or playing Engi/Pyro/Pootis/Spy in Mid in 6v6. I complained pre-season about the rule and there was no real satisfactory response, I kind of gave up because at the end of the day majority of the League admins are Open/Low 6v6 players unwilling to acknowledge the logic that a Prem HL Engineer in 6s in Mid is not an unfair edge.

That admin team could do with a few Higher level players on it in my opinion.

#75 b4nny discussion in TF2 General Discussion
can we do somethin about this guy in pughub man

I feel like this problem is solveable by admins looking at the video/taking reports and deciding if this is a breach of the pug groups rules or not. I don't exactly know the rules of this group, but at the very worst you'd maybe warn b4nny for some language depending how you view it but I don't see how you'd ban him for this stuff, but I only watched 5 minutes of the video, it's a matter for the admins to decide as it's their group.

Personally I don't get how you can play a Pug at 3am not want to be drunk and/or trolling but each to their own.

#16 Define your anti-sandbagging rules in TF2 General Discussion

So my friend, I get that the point of this topic is about sandbagging and rules being unclear.

I understand it is not very fun to login and play TF2 and get smashed by experienced/better players. I get that, however I do want to mention one specific thing on the topic of Sandbagging. As a concept it was born out of a massive desire from people in the community complaining about losing because "This team had a Higher level Scout".

This is a competitive league, we're playing competitive games, the objective of the game is to win, the reason teams might sign up is ultimately, to win. Nobody signs up to lose. Some people may care more about having fun, having close games than actually challenging your potential to be the best player in the division or the best team, I do not have any issue with this, just that if you think a league should be designed specifically to prevent sandbagging then you should just not play competitive TF2 and play in house PUGs or Lobbies.

There can only be so many teams in the Top divisions, I know I have spent a ton of time in the Top Divisions and a ton of time just outside it, plenty of times there have been players good enough to play at the top level within the right structure in 1 or 2 divisions lower, but these players prioritised fun over competition, but they are not allowed to compete at a lower level because they are "Too good?".

Leagues made moves to stop sandbagging specifically, to be honest I personally am astounded people sign up to competitive gaming leagues and not want to play against the best. I was (and still am) a Middie, trying to be the best I can be, I used to sign up to Cups and play highest level we were allowed because I wanted to play better players and improve.

Sandbagging is an overblown issue made up by people who are not good at the game and have no desire to improve, they just don't enjoy losing. Well guess what, that's gaming, nobody likes losing, I hated playing Sev7n most because they toasted us most the times we played, we all want close games and if you're not good enough, you'll get toasted - but if you sign up to a competitive league and don't expect to play against better players then you're living in a fantasy world. Tell me what is the point of competitive TF2 when people don't want to compete but rather play vs someone they know they can beat. Everyone can be beaten if you try hard enough, people who complain about it I bet you a sum of money they don't work as hard to be as good as the person crushing them in the game. I bet they don't sit there studying Demos of better teams, seeing what they do that makes them better. I'd actually rather these people don't even play the game, yes the game has been slowly shrinking but when I watch a TF2 game it's still of a very high standard mechanically, even if the scene is about 4x smaller than it was back in 2010, it's a ton better. Understand if you sign up to play in a league, you're signing up to get smashed. I knew that everytime I registered my team, I know a thing or two about being wrecked 5-0 in 10 minutes.

I am not advocating let Top level players go into Open and win every game 5-0 in 6 minutes. There should be measures in place to prevent the NEW players from being purposely targetted by higher skill groups that prefer to just roll worse players than test themselves competitively. At some point though, as a "New player" you got to climb and test yourself. You are NEW until you play your first game, then you're no longer new, simple as this. Also it's obvious but you should not allow a much better team to play together a skill level lower when the previous season they were doing well at a skill level above, these are common sense rules - However if you did allow such a thing, it has to be because there are so many good teams at a High level already, it is a great opportunity for the lower level teams to play the best - You only become better when you play against better, it's a rare opportunity.

But in the case of 1 former Invite or Premiership player off-classing isn't the same as a team delibrately going down. What this does will create a sort of economy of free agents, people can't drop down a level to find a new team to grow with because they're too good but cannot get on another team. Or force teams to disband before the season even starts.

Somewhere everyone forgot what they were actually doing was playing competitive TF2. I am glad I don't play anymore, but if I did, I have more experience than almost every player on ETF2L, even at a high level and if I played Demoman tomorrow in Div 3, majority, if not all of the players would be better than me. Experience isn't an edge, otherwise Pele and Maradona would still be playing football.

#1 Remove Stream in Requests


My channel: https://www.twitch.tv/hildreth1

I would like my stream to be removed from the sidebar, I do not stream TF2 anymore, just Poker and this community is probably not appropriate viewing audience for this. Enjoyed my time here, never will forget, love you all.

Thank you.

#201 My Story With Dashner: A Thread in TF2 General Discussion

Finally what people I know have thought about Dashner for a decade being revealed to be true (that is a sociopath and fucked up in the head) sadly to be more fucked up then I ever thought, feel bad for people who had to interact with him.

Good luck TF2 community, enjoy the morality driven arguments in this thread from the useless forum dwelling children, I just hope good people left can recover from this and the BTS LAN cancelling and keep the community going.
