Skial Stats
If a player has offended any rule that can be tracked through the player logs (e.g. bypassing afk-manager, intel griefing, being friendly, being racist, ...) it is easy to recover and provide the data in the report. A screenshot is mostly not needed, since the admins can access them easily as well.

Here I will give some more information for those who are new to the system, to easily find your way.

Retrieving a player on Skial Stats

  1. Search a player using his Account ID: every Steam account has his own unique Account ID. With this ID you can never miss, so be sure you copied the correct one and put in nothing but [U:1:12345678].
  2. Search a player based on his player name: be aware that many players on our servers can have similar names, so mostly this is an inefficient way of finding a player. Note that every player has his own ID per game type, so aliases of the same person will all show the same ID.
Method 1 is the preferred and easiest way to look up someones stats. This search will bring up all game modes. TF2 is for all normal servers (e.g. cp_, pl_, plr_, ctf_, koth_, ...), TF2 Custom contains not-standard game modes (Saxton Hale, Death Run and JailBreak), TF2 Trade logically our Trade servers and Idle is for Bottiger's 24/7 Idle.
Contents of Skial Stats

  • Names: the name they use on our servers
  • Events: every action you make in game is registered in this log. It contains kills, deaths, (dis)connects, intel pick-up and drop, ...
  • Sessions : shows when they connected to our server and for how long. It also shows their K/D for the session they were on.
  • Chat History: everything a player types in chat is saved in the player's chat log. The chat log can be filtered for (parts of) words. If you add a * before or/and behind the word, the filter will also show words that contain the filter.
    E.g. Bottiger will be found by filtering for Bottiger, *otti, otti*, *otti*, ... But not by *Bot or tiger*.

If you still have questions regarding the collection of required evidence or reporting, feel free to contact one of our TF2 admins.
