Challenger's Anti-Cheat Policy
Challenger Interactive Inc. has a strong anti-cheat policy. Any form of cheating, hacking, exploiting and abusing in-game functions will result in a permanent ban from our system and may result in civil penalties. Cheating is considered fraudulent behavior and a crime when it's possible to win money or prizes. Cheaters may be reported to the proper national authorities where additional consequences will be determined by those authorities.
We also monitor and partner with other software and websites:
- If you have a ban for cheating on another competitive site or tournament platform, your account at Challenger may be suspended. This includes alternative accounts.
- If you have a Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC) ban or other game-ban you may not be allowed to participate. This includes alternative accounts.
Challenger's Mandated Use of Anti-Cheat Software
Easy Anti-Cheat (EAC) is the world's leading anti-cheat software. Owned and supported by EPIC Games (the publisher of Fortnite), EAC offers a holistic anti–cheat service which uses cutting edge hybrid technology to counter hacking and cheating in multiplayer PC games.
EAC contribues to Challenger's fraud prevention systems by actively monitoring user's PCs for cheats and game altering scripts. EAC is required to be running for all users. The Challenger application will not operate unless Easy Anti-cheat is installed and running.
The Easy Anti-Cheat client is available on Steam and is required for participating in Easy protected matches. Once you have the client installed, start it from Steam and wait for the app to finish loading and indicate "Please start the game". At this point, start your game and connect to the protected game server through the standard server browser.
