CheatingFor obvious reasons, cheating will not be tolerated under any circumstances. If you are caught cheating in a match setting, you will be disqualified from the tournament.
Cheats include, but are not limited to:
OpenGL and similar driver and texture hacks.
Any type of unauthorized pak editing.
Any mechanism by which information that is not normally available to the player is obtained, such as OGC or any type of eavesdropping.
Nuking, channel takeovers, crashing a match server, or any other form of denial of service.
Simply put, if you think something is wrong or illegal, don't do it.
- tolerated delay of one game is 30 minutes. If one of opponents is missing for more than 30 minutes the one who is in present is getting a default win and will be moved to the next round.
- player has to behave like a human. Any spam or timeouting on purpose or other improper behavior will not be tolerated and may result in disqualification from the qualification.
- every player has to record demos from every game! set /autorecord 1! If admin ask him he provide his demos.
- if there are any concerns about breaking the rules players has to fully cooperate with admins. If not it may result with disqualification from the tournament.
