SteamBans.com is always seeking to expand its horizons and the best way to do that is to engage in partnerships that offer a win/win situation for both parties
As a result of cheating in leagues and ladders are more common then it was just 6 months ago - using private or self-coded hacks (our claim) - it is a continuous struggle for leagues and ladders to keep their leagues clean. There is no online league that can claim that they are 100% cheat-free.
SteamBans can enter a partnership with a league/ladder in many different ways.
As a level 1 partner you will be offered access to a remote STEAM_ID search script that easily can be adapted to fit your league's own system, so that you can block known cheaters from entering your league as well as run weekly/monthly checks to see if there are any matches among the players in your league. The remote script will be accessed through a username/password handshake to maximize security. SteamBans will offer support/consultancy on how you can best implement a secure check-system on your website.
As a partner level 2 SteamBans offer its assistance as a silent partner in helping you educate and train your admins to maximize your output on cheat-accusations. SteamBans will offer courses that your admins can attend, where they will be graded on their performance. You can be involved in how the documentation and structure of the courses are, so that you can rely on SteamBans to educate new admins for your league
This system is still under development
As a partner level 3 league you can rely on SteamBans as an active partner in formulating cheat-accusations rules, guides for your admins on how to handle accusations and help in developing a strong anti-cheat focused organization towards your users.
As a partner level 4 league SteamBans will act as an independent 3rd party consultancy that you can submit cheat-accusations of your choice to and listen to our opinion on the matter, before you make your own informed decission. You will receive a dedicated SteamBans contact that will make sure your submissions get priority over standard submissions in the SteamBans submissions system, so that they will be handled faster then normal.
As a partner level 5 league you outsource the complete area of cheat-accusations to SteamBans, and let us handle all the details surrounding it. This way you can focus on other areas of your league that you might find more in need of your attention.
In all aspects of the partnership SteamBans would like to help your league/ladder take your Anti-Cheat effort to another level.
If you want to apply for a partnership, send a mail to Leagues [at] SteamBans.com with information regarding your league, as well as the partnership level you would be interested in.
