#15 Ultimate Credu Legacy in Videos

I have shared this clip to the rest of the ETF2L AC members and we all agree Credu just has a nice pair of Gunnar glasses and a superb gaming chair.

Any Bethesda PR people here that can help us with our rep? We have plans to take ETF2L to mobile only.

#55 ETF2L Allow potential cheater to play in Playoffs in TF2 General Discussion
smzi@lazybear thanks for being the only admin trying to give proper reasoning and responding in this thread. I got a couple of questions though:
Punishment in the form of minor/major warnings for the team fielding the player that failed to submit the demos are distributed immedeatly after the 'crime' aswell so why is the punishment for the player coming in delayed?

We punish the team because if we didn't a team could just add cheaters who never upload and play every match without consequence. Matches are defaulted to the opposing team if people are caught cheating but if there is no material to review then we can't ban either. It needs to be immediate because the team leader(s) is the one getting the E-mail from the website about the demo request. It's his responsibility to notify his players about it. It's important to the league that keeping it clean is an effort where everyone is responsible, including teams. We can't delay these because they directly affect the actual matches and season the demo requests are for. I see your point in the sense that why should it be different for the team and the actual user though. It would definitely feel wrong to me to say punish a team a season later for an offense one of their players did the previous season.

smzi"Do people just randomly get unlucky with the timing of banposts when they get banned mid season then?

Honestly yes. That's what I don't like about the current system. Even if the ban wave is during a season one user could not be active that season, and another could be in the playoffs with his team. If we have 8 people getting demo banned at the same time then naturally they could be affected differently.

#52 ETF2L Allow potential cheater to play in Playoffs in TF2 General Discussion

Hi. ETF2L AC Admin here since 2013. Just wanted to clear up some things.

Failed demo requests are absolute and we don't care what division people are in if they break them. Rules apply to everyone and I've banned prem players for it before just the same. This has always been a core mentality at ETF2L and in my opinion it's been maintained pretty well speaking from an AC standpoint. Thaigrr's situation is going exactly like any other users failed request is going. I can't even remember the last time we've banned someone days after their failed request.

We always put these users on the pending list, and they get included in the next banpost with the special exception to make sure that their ban actually affects them in a season. Rarely we've just done demo bans by themselves in a newspost but it's deifinitely uncommon. We don't want people getting 2 week bans off season where it ultimately wouldn't punish them at all so we try to make sure it actually matters but I don't want to sit there monitoring a player with a trigger finger and banning them before their grand final or something like that. I'm not entirely happy with how we're doing demo bans this way but this is how it's been done for every user to this point. The public ban post serve as a reminder for the playerbase to record and keep their demos when they see people getting banned for not doing so.

I'm not very sympathetic to Thaigrr. He's been banned 2 weeks already for his second failure to upload so you'd think he would be extra careful recording his matches after that. At the same time if we'd give in to public pressure and ban him immediately, it would in effect make him into an example and give him special (bad) treatment by doing so. This wouldn't happen with non high profile user.

My opinion is that we should definitely should discuss some potential changes at ETF2L to the banning process when it comes to demo requests. Perhaps it would be better to just ban every failed requests as soon as we can and then add them to the future ban post anyways. This way it would be the most fair to the affected users and the ban post would serve it's purpose.

Ah and for any non-eu people out there, we do a ton of random demo requests at ETF2L and they all have 4 users requested in each one. This way the majority of the players requested aren't even AC related. Wanted to kinda make that clear. The whole point of the punishment is to actually make sure people record and provide, and we always remove the ban immediately if the user provides after getting banned.

#70 TF2CENTER BANNED ME in TF2 General Discussion
saamcenter killed their site by banning enough of the good players that the rest had no reason to play there. say whatever u want about hl but i found it more fun than just pubbing if i was trying to chill and play tf2. it's too bad that's gone now

I can't speak for NA, but in EU people in the higher divs never really touched tf2c to begin with. I doubt bans were really the factor that caused people to avoid tf2c, think just most people would rather scrim or play proper pugs. Center was kinda regarded as the entry level thing from pubs, and outside of just chilling with music and sniping or w-e many avoided it. And ofc for 6s it was.... ugh.

#109 cookye makes a comeback in TF2 General Discussion

There are so many factors that go into a persons LAN performance like a different setup, monitors, a lot of pressure to perform, new environment etc. I think we're beyond the times when people accused players of cheating due to poor performance at lan. I can get behind the notion of "proving yourself" in terms of stepping up where it matters the most, but not in terms of using it as evidence for cheating.

#42 if you dislike tf2center.... in TF2 General Discussion
anurodhtf2center or tf2stadium, you'll never find asian lobby anywhere

Yeah that's true. Asiafortress will be your closest thing, can't really speak of their activity etc. http://asiafortress.com/index.php/index.html

You know there was an Indian player called kcot who played a lot in Europe. Consistently a great sniper in prem back when he was active. Some people were kinda salty because of his latency but you gotta respect that he made it work.

#37 if you dislike tf2center.... in TF2 General Discussion

Don't really know much of TF2c but it does seem like they switch around the mod team every 3 months. Either people aren't willing to volunteer their time or something else is up. I've had several on my flist and whenever I've asked them why they're gone they all pretty much just say "can't work with Masternoob". I've never talked to the guy though.

I still remember when a lot of the older admins basically rq'd on the same day. That's when it really went downhill.

#4 Cannot play any demo file. in Q/A Help

Gaming developers will not make their games with your operative system in mind. It's designed for servers. You will find issues. You can try the
mat_queue_mode "-1" for less crashes when watching demos (That's more for CPU issues though), but I doubt it will fix it for you.

> 2012 R2 for my system is perfect for stability and performance

I'm just curious, I don't doubt that this is true, but just how stable do you need your PC. Don't think my PC has bluescreened in months and I run win10. If you're running an actual server then I'd sympathize more. Imagine stability is a priority then.

#111 Valve, TF2 prize money and us in TF2 General Discussion
SpuA comparison between Valve and Blizzard's development teams really shows how fucking awful Valve is at developing a game they want to eventually make "competitive". Valve hasn't put any money into tournaments for the 9 years the game has been out, updates the game once or twice a year, only one for every three updates actually has in-game impact - the rest are just money farming updates. Meanwhile, Blizzard is developing the game as a competitive game by giving it constant attention - updates every month or two, no micro transactions between players, no in game economy, PTR to test future updates, constant communication between devs and the community.

tl;dr valve needs to rent out the overwatch developers for a few months

I think that comparison is a bit unfair. OW was made from the ground up after Esports was a huge success, and you can bet Blizzard is trying really hard to capitalize on that.

#373 TF2 benchmarks in TF2 General Discussion

Yeah

SunTzuCan someone please help me?

I feel like I should get more FPS than this. What could be the culprit?

Just so you don't misunderstand, your issue is very specific to TF2 and certain other CPU intensive games. My own GPU utilization for the benchmark1.dem on the 1070 is averaging at 30% throughout the bench. That's on an OC'd i7 2600k 4.5 GHz.

http://i.imgur.com/GPAeEG1.png

It matters a lot. Your build will likely get far better performance in modern games as it utilizes more of the GPU. You'll still in time get bottlenecked a bit with that CPU though. Intel Core i5-6600 or K variant that others suggested are probably the best for you. You don't need an i7 for gaming generally and the highest clock on Quad-Core is the way to go for gaming right now.

Just so we're 100% clear. Your motherboard is a LGA1366 socket chipset. The I5-6600 will not fit.

#51 Weapon Bans in TF2 General Discussion

I mean Valve did nerf the Rescue rangers repair ability, especially because in HL you switched between the wrangler and the ranger, which meant it had an absolutely insane health pool. Could also shoot stickies off with the wrangler.

Thank god Wrangler isn't allowed in 6s. Honestly still predict most engies at last will use the ranger, why would you not? Just stand on the spawn gate like before and spam bolts, switch to your main class when it's gonna die. This is a difficult thing because I'm all for giving engies tools to make them more viable outside last holds, but the rescue ranger makes him significantly better for these holds.

But I've been wrong before, will be interesting to see how the top teams will utilize it.

#17 VAC ban impersonators in TF2 General Discussion

We banned this user from www.Etf2l.org For a VAC.

http://etf2l.org/forum/user/121697/

Don't have much since it's an American user but I sent some of the info to highclass that might help, given that he is an admin himself on a site with more Americans.
I see impersonators all the time but most of the time they pick already banned users to impersonate. Occasionally prem players and the like. Guess they figure it takes attention away from themselves.

#61 Coach to i58 maybe unfair? in TF2 General Discussion

Let's look at this another way.

Have you ever watched your own demo after a match and noticed all of the mistakes you made? Why is it so easy to analyze the correct decisions while watching demos? I think it's because you have no pressure to perform/dm while watching. If you have access to all of your teammates perspectives on top of that, and you'd be able to maincall for them, I think there is potential for a big advantage.

I'm not specifically calling out Crowns here, and I don't personally think they were able to utilize this advantage to the degree that other Esports has. Coaching in high level TF2 is still a relatively new thing, and it's very relative to each team how much they can benefit from it.

In CSGO, the advantage is even bigger as the Coaches spend hours every day going through enemy teams demos and plan out counter strats, or just to know what to expect. The players are allowed to focus on playing and practicing.
Instead of discussing how much it mattered that Kaidus coaches for Crowns this lan, let's instead admit that if Coaching become more of a thing in TF2 then in the future it can become an issue.

Valve made a rule limiting communication between coaches to timeouts and between maps, which to me seem perfectly reasonable for tf2.
