Crossfire.nu is proud to announce the fifth installment of its Challenge LAN Series running from December 12-14 2008. The event which has become a focal point in both the Enemy Territory and Call of Duty series returns with an improved prized offering and greater capacity to house teams wishing to attend. The event will take place in the WZZRD Gaming Center in Enschede powered by their new project, WZZRD.tv, this the venue which crowned Fnatic and The Last Resort champions in CoD4 & ET respectively.

The event will also feature an online tournament for each game in November to determine the seedings for the tournament before kicking off in earnest at 9AM on Friday the 12th of December in Enschede. QuadV as always will be live on location broadcasting both the tournament and all the fun of the event both to the web and to the local audience!

Entry fee's will work differently for this event featuring an early bird discount in September - Signups will open in September with the announcement of the prizes and all entries in September will be 40 Euro per player for ET and 50 Euro per player in CoD4. Signups will remain open in October but will be 50 Euro per player in ET and 60 in CoD4 and will only be accepted via online credit card payment (google checkout system). So if you pay before October you get it 10 Euro cheaper.

Adroits ET Masters

It's been over 8 months since ET has seen any sort of notable LAN action. The last event of course being SAGE where Anexis took the win. Since then, it looks like the community has settled back into the 6on6 format for online tournaments. In order to not rock the boat, we've decided to make our return to ET and this time with a 6on6 offline tournament. Whilst the ET community may be familiar with the name "ET Masters", I'd like to clarify that it is in no way connected to the previous tournaments.

Read on for all the available information at this time.

Essential information overviewimage: logo
Dates: 2nd & 3rd June 2012 (09:00 each day)
Entry: €350 per team of 6

Keran and Shy banned from EC

image: clanbase_whiteShortly after the spectacular end to the Germany Pro5 vs Europe Dignitas ClanBase EuroCup round 3 game tonight bans for Germany Keran and Germany Shy were filed on ClanBase. These players were banned for cheating on a public server and, hence, these players will receive a suspension from all games in ClanBase competitions.

There has been much speculation as to what this will mean for the Germany Pro5 team after their recent victory over defending champions Europe Dignitas. After discussion of the rules and the situation at hand, the decision has been made that the result of this match and all previous matches in which Keran and Shy played for Pro5 will stand. This is due to the fact that the cheating offences were on a public server and there is no indication that these players cheated in these or any other official ClanBase matches, and is in accordance with the ClanBase cheating and abuse policy.

Thanks as always must go to Bulld0g for his relentless hard work in tracking down the evidence to stop the cheaters in the ET community.

First SLAC Bust List released

image: 6qun1c

Today, SPEEDLINK proudly presents what you waited for so long:

- The SLAC bust list! -

Quote by SPEEDLINK|chaplja
The current ban list consists cheaters caught during a period of a bit more than a month. Although rumours were floating around saying 29 persons would be banned for cheating, unfortunately SLAC in start lacked certain detections and although there's 99% possibility those accounts were used for cheating, I've decided to wait a bit more as the logs don't make it clear whether it was triggered by a cheat or corrupted hardware. The accounts in question will be monitored and checked often, though. Now that the website is done and the whole system works fine, cheaters will be added to the list more often. However, as of a few days ago, a large number of public and some private cheats have been blocked from operating at all, which will probably result in lower detection rate as many attempts to cheat will fail.
