Season 2 has been a wild ride for us so far and we’ve gone through and learnt many things. We are thrilled to bring you another season of CS:GO! We hope to further grow the community and strengthen the Divisions we are holding for a better experience for all users coming onto the platform.

Anti-Cheat
The switch from MOSS to Easy Esports:

Over the past season we have been listening to everyone’s feedback over the newly appointed anti-cheat, due to this we will be discontinuing use of MOSS for our CSGO divisions and switching over to Easy esports.

“Easy™ esports is the leading third-party anti-cheat client for Counter-Strike. We are unique by being pro-active, keeping focus on countering cheat mechanisms rather than on detecting them. This way you can have peace of mind that your opponents play clean, and won't be banned only days after having ruined your stats.”

To download Easy esports all you need to do is:

Head over to: https://store.steampowered.com/app/282660/Easy_eSports/

- Install the anti-cheat client through Steam.
- Run the client.
- Start the game.

LPL Premium
This past season we have pushed hard to enforce the rules with premium, we will be continuing to enforce this rule. Use this as a reminder to always have an active subscription when joining a server.

“Over the last season, we have been extremely lenient in regards to premium for league matches due to admins giving the benefit of the doubt to all players. However, in future seasons all participants who join a match server without premium will have there team instantly disqualified. It is the opposing teams obligation to bring any rule breaches to the admins attention”

The Inject System for the upcoming FFYI

Last season we implemented a new system regarding how Injects and the FFYI will work, if you have not seen or read about it you can find it here:
https://letsplay.live/forums/thread/621339/Upcoming-FFYI-Female-League-Anti-Cheat/

“Within previous seasons you have seen us make room for Inject teams within the FFYI's, we will no longer be doing this.

We will be using a strict system that will only see a few inject teams make it through. We are doing this to help promote team longevity. Inject teams will only be pushed into a FFYI if a team already in one has died, they will still need to meet the requirements of the division. If no teams meet the requirements then a team from below will be brought up.

If you would like to sign up as an inject team, the link is here: https://www.cybergamer.com/games/csgo/relegationapp/"


On behalf of the entire LPL Admin Team, we would like to wish every team competing the best of luck for the next coming weeks. For any questions, do not hesitate to ask by either posting in the forum announcement, contacting an admin via Support Ticket. Alternatively, you can join the community Discord channel!

Many Thanks
LPL Admin Team
