    You must buy the Skial contest ticket from the in-game store by the end of the contest in order to be picked for a prize.

    It is bought with credits and does not require any real money. If you bought it a long time ago, it is probably deleted. Check your inventory to see if you still have one.

    Not sure if this is the place for posting this, but my score somehow got reset for the contest. Any help would be appreciated.

    It was reset to 0 for bypassing the afk manager.

    I have been playing your payload servers. I didn't use any bypass, i have put lots of time into this.

    Steam:

    We have gotten reports about you from other players saying you were using +attack to avoid the afk manager.

    We also have logs of you not getting any kills for hours.

    Steam:

    Do bots show up on your console log? Because most of the time the servers are empty. I have screenshots of my scores after playing hours. I put lots of effort into this.

    Steam:

    You are correct but we still saw some cases where it looked like you were afking even if they might have been bot kills.

    We will change it to half.

    It's a shame i have to try and prove i was winning legitimately. I really like your servers and for the most part they are all i play on. I also have donated multiple times in the past for benifits. Thank you for your time nevertheless, even though ultimately i feel wronged here.

    Sorry, the admins were reporting logs from different people and got mixed up. We have restore all your contest credits.

    You can get enough credits just by doing 1 days worth of contracts and probably less than 1 hour of playing.

    Oh wicked mate, brought a ticket for the hell of it since it's basically dirt cheap and turns out I was sitting in the spot #10 the whole time, now I'm 7th, ain't that a neat lil'something, eh?
    Edit: Oi shitte, just noticed you can toggle the "Has ticket" in the leaderboard and I suddenly feel lots left confident in my position, still a pretty cool thing going on tho, just in time for my comeback to the game too.

    So...I don't want to be a snitch or anything, and I don't really know the rules, but it seems like bypassing the AFK manager isn't allowed right? Because the guy at the top, Dave, who by the way is a skial admin, is bypassing the AFK manager for hours. I attached proof. He just joined a team but not a class and is somehow bypassing the AFK manager with 0 points and isn't actually playing. Katt and everyone else is actually playing the game legitimately (I'm NOT the one who brought it up before, causing people to wrongfully get their points reset). And I'm not saying you should reset Dave's points, since it's technically not outlined in the rules. Maybe when you do this contest in the future, you shouldn't make play time count so much, just pick like 10 random people in the top 200 for all prizes. That way people won't be whiny about it. But feel free to just let this contest remain the same and not reset people's points who have been playing for 20+ hours a week. Maybe Dave was playing earlier, I don't know, I didn't notice until now.

    Totally understand your concern.
    I do log in and join a random server and let the afk manager take over for hours and hours. It switches me from server to server and does what ever the afk manager does.
    Here is my stats page. Take look. In no way I am doing anything to bypass the afk manger.

    Steam:

    Bypassing the afk manager is when people use +attack so it keeps them in game while being completely useless to the team. If the afk manager can properly track you, it will give you half the credits and kick/move you when the server is full.

    We don't base credits on kills because that would be unfair to be people playing support classes like medic.

    Okay, I understand now; it's good to know the rules. But you can see why I was confused because there was no "AFK" in the name and usually it turns you into a bot that actually plays the game and scores points, which helps seed the server with real players. It's all good.
