We have determined that the players above have been banned by the Valve Anti-Cheat System. Cheating provides an unfair advantage for competitors. As such, these players have been banned from ozfortress.com, the community's competitions, and all other ozfortress properties for a period of 1 year, after which time the persons will be on permanent probation. If they are found aliasing during their competition bans, their ban duration will be extended.

Teams who had the above players on their rosters for OZF 15 are to continue to organise matches without the banned individual.

Should ANY clans in ANY ozfortress competitions be found housing the listed players, the team will be permanently removed from our competitions and all members involved will face severe penalties.

It's coming! ozfortress season 15 is reaching its end and this brings the excitement of finals. And we have a new format to bring you the best games and the best coverage as provided by the ever amazing TFLIVE.

We will be using a page playoff system. Seeding into this system is similar to previous seasons - your points gained during the season are used to seed you into the playoffs bracket. The page playoff system produces close matches in the first round while continuing to reward a good regular season performance.

To summarize how it works:

Upper Page Playoff: Seed 1 vs seed 2
Negotiated between Sunday 8th May - Thursday 12th May
The Winner advances to the Grand Final
The Loser drops to the Semifinal
Lower Page Playoff: Seed 3 vs Seed 4
Negotiated between Sunday 8th May - Thursday 12th May
The Winner advances to the Semifinal
The Loser drops to the Third Place Match
Semifinal: Loser of Upper Page Playoff vs. Winner of Lower Page Playoff
Locked to Sunday 15th May
The Winner of the Semifinal advances to the Grand Final
The Loser drops to the Third Place Match
Third Place Match: Loser of Semifinal vs. Loser of Lower Page Playoff
Negotiated between Monday 16th May - Thursday 19th May
The winner of this match will receive Third Place
The loser of this match will receive Forth Place
Grand Final: Winner of Semifinal vs. Winner of Upper Page Playoff
Locked to Sunday 22nd May
This match will be played as a best of 5 maps.
The winner of this match will receive First Place
The loser of this match will receive Second Place
note: Intermediate and Open will use a single elimination bracket as in OWL.

You can find all coverage of this season as well as previous coverage at TFLIVE or TFLIVE YouTube.

We'd like to give a small update on the current fundraiser for this season. Alongside the seed donation of AU$550 by Runaway, Brodogs, and Obla, we've gained a whopping US$428.20 from community donations. This means...

Current prize pool: AU$1105.72*

Donations are still open for another week, so please throw in what you can. Those donating the equivalent of 100 AUD or more will receive an exclusive forum badge. Be sure to link your ozfortress profile when you donate.

A reminder how we are allocating: if the winner decides to go overseas and represent the community at i58, they will receive the entire prizepool as travel support. If they decline, we will appropriately distribute the prize pool between teams in the top 3 spots.

ozfortress is proud to announce that OZF 15 Premier will have a community funded prizepool starting at $550! This starting money was graciously provided by Canada's very own Runaway, obla, hobbes and myself.

The admin team would like to distribute the entire prizepool to the winner (if they elect to go overseas and represent the community at i58) or allocate the money to first, second and third place. It is the choice of the competition winning team captain to take all the prize pool to compete at i58 or decline and redistribute the pool.

We've set the fundraiser up on ImRaising which takes a 1.9% cut of donations. The ImRaising cut comes from the organizer of the fundraiser (it's linked to my Paypal) so please enter the amount (in USD) you wish to donate and the final amount will be calculated. We chose ImRaising specifically based on this low cut in an attempt to make the most out of your donations.

We will be offering a limited edition contributor forum badge for donators contributing 100 dollars (AUD) or more for this fundraiser. If you do want this badge, please make sure to link your ozfortress profile link in the comments when you donate.

I will be updating the list below with the donor's name and/or username and donation amount. If you wish to have your name or username listed, please let me know in the Message field on the ImRaising page with your donation amount. If you do wish to remain anonymous, also please do let us know.

The fundraiser will close after round 5 of OZF 15, Friday 22nd April 2016.
