Important updates are occurring within XWIS guidelines and regulations. It is recommended that every player read, understand, and become familiar with the new changes in policy. The rules will apply on May 1st, 2013. For a full view in the updated rules, click here

 

The admin screen shot request has been removed and replaced with the auto ss taker. 

 

Automatic Screen Shot Utility (XYR, XTS, XRA)
Using the AutoSS utility is compulsory if you are competing in the XWIS Tournament Ladder for a Hall of Fame spot.  This utility must be installed and run during the length of the ladder month. Playing select games without AutoSS will be result in HoF disqualification.

 

 

Please take note that XWIS and Strike-Team Admins will now be accepting cheat reports for unranked ladder games. 

  1. Friendly Games
    Cheating on unranked ladder games is not permitted in XWIS.
     
  2. Mod Maps
    XWIS/Strike-Team does not support friendly games on mod maps not released by XWIS, EA, or Westwood studios due to the integrated cheats that come along those maps. If you choose to play a game on  a mod map you do so at your own risk. 
     
  3. Absolutely no use of cheats

    Hacks, editors, trainers, mods, or any other program, software, modification or patch other than as released by EA, XWIS & ST.
     

  4. Exploitation of bugs

    Bugs such as the invisible MCV, spy your own battle lab, map features that cause re-connection errors and/or others are not allowed on XWIS.
     

If you find yourself being cheated under the above conditions, a cheat report can be submitted here.

So using tesla coil+V3 or repairing magnetron in a tech-repair is bannable?

Cheating that causes recon errors, not gameplay glitches.

 

Good job guys.

This policy is completely unworkable and impractical,

 

What are you going to do when a random reconnection error appears in a 6 player Yuri's revenge toe game when you can't prove who caused it? How are you going to prove spying without XGS? Are you now going to start banning for disconnection in FFGs?

 

The list of problems is endless. Might wanna have a good think if this is really the road you want to go down when activity is already at an all-time low!

Surely everything is the same, except also covering FFG :unsure: these problems always existed anyway.... If it cant be proven, it wont be proven, it will go TBI/Not proven, like it always has done....

We all know that 'dude'. Those rules are not generally allowed in tournament games anyway, so whats the problem? Proving a recon error has always been a ban hasnt it? XGS proves use of cheating that causes recon errors, unless they are mapping in which case auto SS proves it. You wont get banned for a map glitch if all the evidence states you were not cheating.

The initial post clearly states that the use of 3rd party tools and exploitation of bugs is not allowed. No where will you find anything about disconnections because no points are being awarded. For the recon errors, as pompi said, it's the same procedure. Read.

New updated rules seems to count glitches dude, for this i've asked a question.

XGS doesn't prove all errors, somes just throw you back to lobby and there s no sync file to prove a thing.

You know those rules were always the same right? The only difference is that they include friendly games. -_-

I'm assuming any games with crates will still be impossible to prove with respect to mapping too. Glitches happen and would probably just result in a free win (or nothing if unranked) if one player was winning over the other. Use common sense, obviously if someone unintentionally causes a recon error while using a V3 they're not going to get banned for it... 

 

Nice changes, I'm sure this will be nice news for those few players who play ffgs frequently, not sure how those who play a lot of mod maps will take it though.

what about you work on the activity? afaik 2012 you had 150+ players at weekends, ive been playing this weekend some and it hardly passed 100, thats a drop of 33%.

 

instead of wasting your time on extra cheat reports, which imo is a joke anyways, dont get me wrong, you know i dislike cheating and everything against it is great.

 

but it took you 7 years to prevent ppl from cheating in ffgs? now when the game isnt played that much anymore.

basically point 1. + 2. are a joke imo

3. + 4. whats new? always got banned for such things..

 

id like to say gj on the work as usual, but id be lying.

 

 

p.s. this is the only  great thing, aslong as you update hof's that is :p

agree with Tomi. anti cheating is great and all but... Devoting all your efforts to remove even MORE players from the game instead of boosting the obvious need for activity??

I rather have a game with 5 fair players than 50 cheaters



This is a cheat free server, if someones to cheat, let them do it with friends who they know won't care, or with people outside of XWIS.
