History of tournaments

We thought it might be interesting to create a list of all tournaments held in SWAT4 so far. It is not complete yet and any help is welcome. Especially witnesses of early years of this game could provide useful information. And of course the list will be updated and article re-published once the two current tournaments are over so do your best there to see your clan tag in it.

Yet another must-be article about <<{PVP}>> member

Today I had to lock the discussion under the introductory article of <<{PVP}>> clan, because their members had been coming here and using inappropriate language. They complained we accused them of cheats unjustly. Few moments later I checked their web and saw a link to their new blog. And what I found there was the most astonishing self-bust ever. Check second picture in this section where they say they are using admin panel. In the back-ground on the left side of the screen you can see white small square in a bigger grey transparent square. Radar. This further proves how endlessly stupid cheaters can be. Because the screen will be probably removed after they see this article, I made a copy:

Will this finally open their leader's eyes?

UPDATE:
As you already know, Casey and StoneCold erased the proof. But they did is so stupidly that at first they only removed the white square, but transparent radar square was still unedited. On top of it, they started claiming it was us who used photoshop, and the original is on their web (you can see their lies in their old chatbox). Later they removed the whole blog and the poorly edited picture was on gallery in their website. After they saw we are having fun on their brainlessness, they removed it also from there.

And here is another quality stuff from StoneCold. Few days before this article, he joined ||ESA|| server with my nickname and he conducted an "interview". Look at the questions he asked (taken from server logs thanks to ||ESA|| clan):

Overview of ||ESA|| Tournament so far

After 12 completed matches the VIP tournament organized by ||ESA|| has reached its halfway point.  JF|| have stolen a march in Group A with two successive wins including an impressive 6-1 victory over »Cartel«, which has propelled them to the top. However, with SC|| drawing 4-4 vs «|PG|» the "Group of Death" remains wide open with every team still in with a realistic chance of qualification to the semi-finals.

Meanwhile in Group B, |WM| have unsurprisingly taken 1st spot with two comfortable victories. Though they are yet to play ||ESA|| or |MYT|, you would feel that their qualification is expected and the main issue lies in which team can secure the other qualifying spot. ||ESA||'s thrilling 4-3 win over |MYT| in the first week may prove to be the defining result in that battle.

There have been controversies, such as a Polish couple who devised a strategy so that one of them could play in-game without UAC, as well as a desktop bug issue regarding a Turkish player (which eventually got resolved). In summary though it has been a smooth process up till now and hopefully that will continue. To view the latest updated table click here.

<<{PVP}>> clan - all you (don't) need to know

While the eyes of S4 community are focused on interesting things going on in ESA VIP tournament, there are also other stories to tell. Like the one about "new" VIP clan named Professional VIP players established only a week ago. Their absence in the aforementioned tournament is the first sign, that it won't be so hot with their professionalism. But who are they?

If you remember our article about {<BoS>} clan, you know the basics. Same leader and similar attitude to cheaters. And we do not mean only ex-cheaters. We witnessed a round when their member StoneCold (xfire: stone1cold2) used long-arms in front of leader's very eyes and he is still on the roster. They have clean players too but their level of skill can be described as "beginners forever". With such attributes we do not expect this project to survive this year.
