R.I.P. MyTime Disqualified - Survival of the Fittest - Versus Tourney
Monday, October 12, 2009
Dear Left 4 Dead Community,
On behalf of all of us at iGames and CEVO, we sincerely appreciate your efforts in calling to our attention suspicious play by “MyTime” from team Rest in Peace. You have done us all a great service and we thank you for your patience over the weekend.
During the course of the event we encountered no allegations or disputes against MyTime or team Rest in Peace and automatic anti-cheat flags did not trigger. Nonetheless, the evidence that you’ve collectively provided to us demonstrated sound reasoning and so we felt it was appropriate to investigate.
Upon manually reviewing MyTime’s anti-cheat logs in detail, it is clear that he did in fact utilize cheats. All other players are clear of any violations.
Accordingly, team Rest in Peace is disqualified and will not receive any portion of the event prizes. The other finalists are being moved up in their placement and prizes respectively:
1st – Dropouts
2nd – The Specialists (a.k.a. Team Eximius)
3rd – weWILLsurvive
It is disappointing when anyone attempts to cheat in a contest; however it is an inevitable reality that we as a competitive community will always need to face on occasion. Our best means of defense to keep events fun and fair is to work together, as in this case, to enact every possible means of ridding these individuals from our community. Thank you again for your contributions to this effort.
If you have any lingering concerns, please feel free to contact me directly through e-mail wayne[at]igames.org or phone at 650-917-9888 ext: 219.
