9 . Cheating, Illegal Scripts & Binds

- Macros are not allowed.
- Double-switch binds in any form are not allowed.
- This also includes multi-command binds such as bind KEY "toggleads; +attack" on the scroll wheel.
- Using the scrollwheel to shoot is also illegal. This includes both binding +attack to your scrollwheel as well as scrolling very fast and then holding mouse1, which can be done with certain mice. (For example to spam your deagle quickly)
- Players caught using illegal scripts and binds including nade scripts and weapon next binds will receive a forfeit loss and be banned.
- This also includes binds to turn on certain things by using a bug exploit. Depending on the bind, the player can receive a ban for bug abuse.

- The FPS Challenge Anticheat is mandatory for all matches and you also must use proper match id.
- If a player did not use the anticheat, the team gets a forfeit loss.
- If the anticheat crashed or did not work as intended, it will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and the decision is up to the admins.
- If the anticheat catches a player using either: Macros via drivers / running macro application or by confige such as, but not limited to, weapnext, nadescripts, zoomscripts, fastshootscripts etc., the team receives a forfeit loss and the player will be banned as followed:

1st offence: 1 week ban
2nd offence: 1 month ban
3rd offence: 3 month ban
4th offence: 1 year ban
5th offence: permanent ban

If a player plays multiple matches but only gets caught in 1 match, only that match result will be overturned. So if a player did not trigger any violations in a match, that match will not be overturned.

To clarify, having scripts or illegal binds in your config at any time is considered illegal. Obviously, things such as scripts for moviemaking are legal. Anything related to gameplay is not, even if it hasn't been bound to a key.

- A demo upload may take longer than 24 hours, this can be decided by an admin. Exceptions include things such as a player being on holiday and being unable to reach their PC within the 24 hour mark.
