Rules that can be changed with agreements are explicitly stated. Rules that do not explicitly state they can be changed by agreement, cannot have agreements made.
• All arrangements between participants, made in addition to the cup and ESL rules have to be written down in the match comments. The other participant has to confirm the arrangements also in the comments. To avoid abuse of the edit function, a third comment must be written.
• Please also keep screenshots and/or logfiles of your arrangements. If you do not fulfil these requirements, any protests or supports concerning arrangements will be rejected.
If your opponent does not show after 15 minutes, you must enter the result as your opponent did not appear in time and notify an admin immediately. Do not enter a default win for yourself.
All players have to record a demo and the team has to provide status screenshots! If a demo is incomplete (has to include knife round!) or missing, the team will get a default loss.
All match media (screenshots, demos, etc) must be kept for at least 2 days. Faking or manipulating match media is forbidden and will result in severe penalties. Match media should be named clearly based on what the team name, players name and map. It is not possible to file a protest or write a support ticket to complain about bad match media naming. However, if an admin is severly hindered in their work because of bad match media names the team can get punished for it.
It is mandatory for all players to record point of view (POV) demos for the full duration of all matches without exception. A possible knife round is part of the first half and has to be recorded. As long as one of the players/teams is able to upload the knife round on admin request there will be no consequences for a missing knife round. In case no player/team can upload the demo on request the player/team will receive one penalty point. Protests regarding missing knife rounds are not valid.
In general defective or manipulated demos will be treated as missing demos. If the demo is incomplete the admin decided, if it also will be treated as missing demo.
If a protested is opened for a match, all matchmedia needs to be kept for at least 2 days until after the protest is closed.
Editing Demos. It is strictly forbidden to edit demos. If a demo is manipulated, it will be treated as missing demo.
A status screenshot must be taken:
• at the beginning of the match
• in case of a server/player change
• if a player reconnects
Status screenshots made with the help of programs like HLSW etc. are not sufficient, use the ingame screenshot function!
In order to take a status screenshot you have to use the console command "status" followed by pressing your assigned shortkey for the screenshot function.
All scripts or third party programs are illegal except for buy, toggle & demo scripts. Some examples of illegal scripts:
• Stop Shoot scripts [Use or Awp scripts]
• Center view scripts
• Turn scripts [180° or similar]
• No Recoil scripts
• Burst fire scripts
• Rate changers (Lag scripts)
• FPS scripts
• Anti flash scripts or binding (snd_* bindings)
• Bunnyhop scripts
• Stop sound scripts
It's mandatory that everyone has their SteamID for CS:GO (SteamID CS:GO) entered in their profile. If a player didn't put one or a wrong one in their profile the player/team might be punished. If the gameaccount is missing, but you can proof yourself that your are playing with your account by providing a status screenshot, you'll only get a warning. If there are transposed digits in the Gameaccount, the player also gets a warning, when there is a status screenshot provided. In case there is no status screenshot, the match gets deleted (ladder) or you'll get a default win/loss (cup).
Cheating. All forms of cheating in CUP/league matches are forbidden and will be penalized with banning and excluding the team from the cup. The player will also be banneed for two years. Possibilities for cheating in Counter-Strike:Global Offensive are for example all kinds of multihacks, wallhack, aimbot, colored modesl, No-Recoil, No Smoke, No Flash and soundchanges.
