We are here! The grand finals of the Insomnia 52 lan are starting very shortly. Unfortunately, Team Immunity were not quite able to make it this far, going out to Classic Mixup in the lower bracket rounds, securing fourth place.

Make sure to tune in and support Team Immunity. iM are making it well known that they have shown up to claim the trophy, and have brought a roster full of the top players in Australia to make it happen. This roster is hot off the heels of winning the CyberLeague.eu tournament, and are ready to claim the next European title to bring back home. The roster at the event is...

Team Immunity
Bonobo
Termo
Yuki
Aporia
Snowblind
Sheep

After their impressive display at the online tournament and some very promising scrim results against EU teams, iM are looking very strong for this tournament. Last night there were some good looking scrims versus North American team Classic Mixup as well, but be sure to tune in tonight to see iM play vs. all the best NA and EU teams in the round robin stage where the competition really does start to matter.

And if you can't burn the midnight oil to watch iM play overseas, be sure to find the vods in this thread.


Be sure to get around iM and show your support any way you can. Bring home the trophy boys!

Australia's very own Team Immunity is currently over in the UK getting ready to fight toe to toe with the top foreign competition. They are currently boot camping in preparation for Insomnia 52, where the best TF2 players from all over the world will compete to claim the title of the best team in the world. Along with a whole slew of ankle biter European teams there will be European giants Epsilon and AwS while the North American Scene are sending over their best in Froyotech and Classic Mixup.

However, if you can't wait till next weekend till i52 starts and you need your fill of Team Immunity now, this weekend there is a one day online competition that iM will be competing in, the CyberLeague.EU Invitational, which will include many top european teams. Unfortunately, the current European number one Epsilon did have to drop out of the tournament, but AwS was sitting right there to claim first seed instead and iM therefore has second seed for the tournament.

Tune in to TeamFortress.TV at the following times tonight if you are around and willing to burn the midnight oil to watch the action. All times are in Sydney time (AEST).

Sunday 17th August
Round 1: 10:00 PM
Winners Round 2: 10:45 PM
Losers Round 1: 11:30 PM

Monday 18th August
Losers Round 2: 12:15 AM Monday 18th August
Winners Semi-final: 1:30 AM
Losers round 3: 2:15 AM
Losers Semifinals: 3:00 AM
Grand Final: 3:45 AM


In related news, the long awaited i49 Fragumentary by Cube and Bones is being released just after the Cyberleague.eu tournament. It will feature frags and interviews from the worlds best, including Team Immunity. Watch the trailer below to take a look.


If you'd like to see it the second it comes out, you can preorder it in 1080p 60fps download at i49.tf, but if you're slightly more patient and are alright with seeing it in a measly 30fps, then you can wait the next day when it's released on youtube.

As always best of luck to the iM boys while they are over in Europe kicking butt for Australia.

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.

isolation 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.

isolation [STEAM_0:1:67704859] - 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.

Thankyou.

As for other shoutouts, I couldn't have done it without the excellent team behind this tournament. Thanks to Fear and Tonberry for both casting and admining the Amatuer and Access brackets. Thanks to Tommunist for helping with making sure this was the tournament that top level teams wanted, and as well thanks to Snowblind and Homer for being available for him to bounce ideas off of.

I'd like to thank all the participants in division 5 for joining the competition. I hope you enjoyed your first OWL.. With twice as many teams to manage and fewer admins across the board, I'm regretful that I wasn't able to get to know the players as well as I normally attempt to, however I hope to see plenty of faces in future competitions as experience grows
