Update: Based on feedback from the community, we have made the following adjustments to the .COTW system:
When you submit a clip, it will be entered into the competition starting the following week. Submissions must be in by 23:59 UTC in order to be eligible for the following week.
If you submit a clip early in the week, but end up with a better COTW submission, you can replace your existing COTW by simply submitting the newer clip. At 23:59 UTC your clip will be locked in.
For all clips that have been submitted already, your submissions will continue into next week (extended one-time voting!). To get your submissions in for next week's competition submit them by 23:59 UTC on Saturday!
Launched in 2005, Clip of the Week has been one of the longest running features in ESEA history. With the creation of the new .Clip feature, we’re ready to bring the system back to life. We’ve worked to completely re-create the COTW system, built around the ESEA .Clips you create in-game.
Each week users from all regions may submit one .Clip to be rated by the community. The clips with the highest ratings win prizes as well as 10 random winners per week. The .Clip you submit must be created within two weeks of the submitting week. More details, including prizing and how the system works can be found on the ESEA Blog!
VAC Ban Update
Previously our stance has been that if your account had any sort of VAC Ban issued on it, you would not be eligible to add your Steam ID to your ESEA account. With newer information available to us, ESEA is now able to verify if the VAC Ban is specifically for CS:GO or TF2, and will no longer ban accounts with VAC bans on other games.
As a reminder, this is just a snapshot of the update. Complete details are available on the blog linked below.
