An error caused some match threads to be posted listing cp_sunshine_rc1a to be used in round 4 and 5 of owl 12. The correct version is rc2. It can be downloaded as part of the OWL 12 map pack.

There have been reports that today's TF2 update has broken the latest version (2.0.6) of the P-REC plugin. We have tested the older version 2.0.5 and found that it has started working again.

As the OWL rules require that you must be able to provide POV demos from your OWL matches, we strongly suggest that you install a working version of P-REC as soon as possible. "P-REC was broken" is not an excuse.

P-REC 2.0.5 can be downloaded from the link below. Be sure to download version 2.0.5, not 2.0.6.

As you will undoubtedly be aware, this is a revised announcement thread following concerns with initial seeding and approval decisions. We acknowledge that decisions were made without sufficient accountability and due process; whilst there were legitimate concerns regarding the team in question, such concerns have been deemed insufficient for an exclusion from OWL and we hope to see the team overcome them.

In following with the extra team falling into Division 3, we have moved teams down and allowed Aussie Gold as a tenth team in Division 5 (we felt bad enough excluding in the first place, time to show us you earned the spot!). Subsequently, this division will undertake an incomplete round robin, with teams randomised and each clan facing all but two others in the tournament. Finals will be unaffected.

The administrative team collectively admits their error of judgement, and apologises to the team and players involved. The administrative team acted in unison at the eleventh hour to rectify the matter, and are unanimous in our support of the new, revised seedings. Please note that we have also revised the division 2 conditional allowances.

We wish all teams the best for the OWL season ahead, and look forward to seeing your teams play their best over the coming months

ozfortress news

We have substantial proof to believe the following player is using game altering exploits. This is deemed an unfair advantage for the player against others and regarded as a cheat, therefore the below player is suspended from ozfortress for a minimum period of 2 years. We also believe there are other players using this exploit and will continue in our investigation of those cases.

lebm8 has been banned from ozfortress.com, the community's competitions, and #ozfortress for a period of 2 years, after which time the person will be on permanent probation. If they are found aliasing during their competition bans, their ban duration will be extended.

lebm8 [STEAM_0:1:40650897] - 2 years
Should ANY clans in ANY ozfortress competitions be found housing this member, the team will be permanently removed from our competitions and face hefty bans for all members involved.
