The “Bad Apple E-Sports Integrity Management Systems” project
was created late in the summer of 2007, by Steven Marcus and Kyle Vanderbilt. These
two programmers had inadvertently met during a scrim between their two teams, while
preparing for the TGL hosted “Rolling Thunder” “BF2142: Northern Strike”
tournament. By the middle of the summer it was hard to deny the alleged problem
of rampant cheating in the Battlefield community, as well as other online game communities.
After spending some time fiddling with the deployed AC solution, the two decided
that a new structured online gaming environment was needed in order to combat this
Being a fairly new arrival to the online gaming scene (still
within its first year of operation.), and offering cash prizes, the "Total Gaming League"
run by the longtime online gaming community leader MyInternetServices.com saw
the need for such a system and quickly picked up on this concept. An agreement was
reached and it was decided that TGL would be the debut league for the Bad Apple ESIMS,
the project was deployed in early 2008.
Of course this whole project couldn’t have ever made it
off the ground without the hard work and dedication of many individuals. We would
like to give special thanks to a few who we feel have gone above and beyond the call
of duty in order to see this project through.
