Welcome back everyone! ozfortress season 19 is here, the flagship competitive TF2 event for the Oceanic region returns for the second season of 2017! Just like previous seasons, the league is using the highly successful league system: Citadel. As always, we encourage teams of every skill level to sign up and play; the more the merrier!

OZF 19 will feature 3 brackets: Premier, Intermediate and Open. Premier will have a round robin group stage while the lower two brackets will consist of a Swiss group stage. All brackets will now be using the Page Playoffs format.

As with Season 18, all server booking will be done through ozfortress discord. Simply join the #bookings channel in the ozfortress Discord and type /book and details of your server booking will be PM'd to you. To view more commands, type /help in the #bookings channel.

There have been minor changes to the Global Whitelist. View those changes here.

Grand Finals of Premier will be played as a no-advantage best of 5, but Open and Intermediate Grand Finals remain a best of 3. Premier will have 8 teams while Intermediate's bracket size is pending signups. Open will have an unrestricted number of teams.

In Citadel, Captains can create Teams using the "Start Team" button on the Teams page. Once created, Captains can invite players to the Team. Team invites are shown on a player's profile, which can be accessed by clicking on your name next to the bell on the top right hand corner of your screen. Teams provide a bucket of players that can be signed up for a tournament. Players may be on multiple teams but only one Roster for any given tournament. Captains may sign up a Roster for tournaments under the League page.

If you are using an existing team, you do not have to recreate your team again! Simply sign up your OZF 19 roster using your existing team.

If you're new and not sure how to get started, don't fret! Check out the #recruitment section of the ozfortress Discord where you can express your interest in joining a team, or peruse potential players to form a team of your own. Teams are normally comprised of 1 Medic, 1 Demoman, 2 Soldiers and 2 Scouts. Please ensure you have enough backups to last you the season.

TFLIVE will once again be returning this season. Boasting an experienced lineup of casters and the highest quality TF2 production, TFLIVE is the home of Premier Oceanic TF2 coverage. If you're looking for past matches to get a feel for the game, they can be found on the TFLIVE YouTube. However, the best way to learn the game is usually to just start playing. Whether you're a veteran or new to the scene, get on a team and come play!

You can sign up Wednesday the 10th up until Friday the 19th of May at 11:59 PM, with the season starting on Sunday the 21st of May 2017.

Over the past few weeks, leagues have been collecting feedback from polls or personal conversations (for Premier/Invite players) regarding potential Global Whitelist changes. With the collected opinions, administrators from around the globe came together and expressed their region/league’s opinion. The recent threads on teamfortress.tv as well as GentlemanJon’s survey results were also taken into account in our meeting.

The participating leagues in the meeting were ozfortress, ETF2L, ESEA and UGC. The core values of the original Global Whitelist which involved allowing weapons which did not have compelling reasons were retained.

Prior to the meeting, a preliminary list of the most contentious current weapons (see below) was compiled and the meeting was centred around that list. It was agreed that the meeting would be held in private, as the previous meeting in the TF.TV Discord amounted to essentially several hours of arguing resulting in whoever spoke the loudest having the greatest input. However, as we believe transparency to be essential when considering such changes, we have documented the discussions regarding each weapon on this thread.

Changes to Global Whitelist for OZF 19:

Banned:
  • Vaccinator
  • Jarate

Cooperation and consistency between the leagues is a key factor in improving how competitive TF2 is played on a global scale. Your responses to the whitelist in the poll were critical to our decisions.

View the updated whitelist here.

It's been two years since Ultiduo 10, and now I am very happy to announce Ultiduo 11! On Sunday 23rd of April, duos will battle it out for the championship title! Some changes are in order this season, so seasoned and new players take a minute to familiarise yourselves with the changes below.

Over the 10 iterations of Ultiduo we have seen over 400 duos compete with a lot of fun and we hope that Ultiduo 11 will be no different. We're using the classic whitelist along with koth_ultiduo_r_b7 to maintain the old-school tradition. All matches will be a Best-of-1 in a Single Elimination format. However, the Semi-Finals and the Grand Final will be a Best-of-3. The top 8 teams will be seeded and the rest will be randomized. The same two players must play throughout the tournament. Unfortunately, there will be no medals for this tournament.

In Citadel, Captains can create Teams using the "Start Team" button on the Teams page. Once created, Captains can invite players to the Team. Team invites are shown on a player's profile, which can be accessed by clicking on your name next to the bell on the top right hand corner of your screen. Players may be on multiple teams but only one Roster for any given tournament. Captains may sign up a Roster for tournaments under the League page.

If you are using an existing team, you do not have to recreate your team again! Simply sign up your Ultiduo duo using your existing team. Only one duo may sign up per existing team.

Signups:
Ultiduo 11 sign-ups will be done using Citadel, just like previous ozfortress seasonal leagues. Signups are limited to 64 teams so get in quick! Signups will open on Friday the 21st of April and close on Sunday the 23rd of April at 4:00 PM AEST!
Round 1 - 7:30 PM AEST - 7:50 PM AEST
Round 2 - 7:50 PM AEST - 8:10 PM AEST
Round 3 - 8:10 PM AEST - 8:30 PM AEST
Round 4 - 8:30 PM AEST - 8:50 PM AEST
Semi-Finals - 8:50 PM AEST - 9:40 PM AEST (Bo3)
Grand Final - 9:40 PM AEST - 10:40 PM AEST (Bo3)
Matches:
When each round starts, matches will be automatically generated. Server strings will be posted in the match notice. This match notice will only be visible to the players of that match. The map and server configuration will automatically be loaded prior to string distribution.
