We didn't really talk about what happened with some teams which dropped out or problems that occured like conflicts and cheat cases during this NationsCup. It's time to clarify the situation about a couple of things before the playoffs start.
UK and Turkey left us
As you certainly know, United Kingdom
left the competition by their own request :
- UK had internal problems with their players.
- For the Turkey case, their captain Raven has been banned on UZLeague for cheating and that's why they decided to leave us.
However, due to C&A (Cheat and abuse) policy of Clanbase
, we can't ban Raven on Clanbase with the UZLeague proofs.
About some national players
Now that the Raven case is closed, there are two other ones we need to talk about :
- s3cT : this player from the Switzerland Team has been caught cheating in another competition. We requested a bannishement on Clanbase and he's now banned. However, there's no proof that s3ct cheated during the NationsCup. So switzerland is always in the competition (even if they didn't win any match), they will not be removed.
- eWo*Destructive : I don't think it's necessary to explain the well known story of the UAC3 screenshot with a Mombot folder on the desktop. To be clear : a folder named "Mombot" isn't a sufficient trace of cheat (we couldn't see what was into this folder) to ban him 3 months according to the C&A policy.
Holland vs Italy case
The Netherlands won against team Italy
in two maps a few days ago.
UAC3 is mandatory and everyone has to use it (if one of the team wants to play with it, otherwise everyone has to upload his demo on Clanbase website)
. There was one NL player without any screenshot. This player wasn't in the players list with their screenshots on UAC3 program. That's why a forfeit has been stored and the match result has been changed.
Then, we discovered it was a bug (or something like that) because this player was connected to UAC3. Indeed, though the anti-cheat was launched, it didn't take any screenshot during the match (but the connection logs prove that this player was really connected to UAC3
when he was playing).
The match result has been re-edited since we discovered that was a mistake caused by a bug plus a human mistake. I should have check the connection logs before change the match result and I should'nt have edit it without warn The Netherlands before and talk with them.
I'm really sorry for this mistake even if the problem is solved now.
I should be hung, cut, then burnt and finally thrown into ocean.
About the playoffs
As you know, playoffs are now about to start. We're just waiting one match between Canada and Belgium to know who will be qualified. They are tied and will play a bomb map this sunday at 21:00 CET
to break the tie between them.
Even if the final play-off tree isn't generated yet, you can see it in the rules. There is also a weblink to know the current ranking below :
I hope these clarifications can help you to understand what happened during the NationsCup.
