Aequitas

The ESL's own anti-cheat client Aequitas will be compulsory for all Intel Extreme Masters matches. Make sure you test and know how to use it before playing your first match in the qualifier! We recommend playing matches in the European Counter-Strike 1.6 ladders to become familiar with it.

If you have any problems with Aequitas, go to the Aequitas page for how to find help.
