Let's get the year started! ozfortress season 18 is upon us, the flagship competitive TF2 event for the Oceanic region! Just like previous seasons, the league is using the highly successful league system: Citadel. Teams of all skill levels are encouraged to signup and play.

OZF 18 will feature 3 brackets: Premier, Intermediate and Open. Premier will have a round robin group stage into page playoffs. The lower two brackets will consist of a Swiss group stage leading into a single elimination finals bracket. Bronze matches will be for Intermediate and Open only. For those wanting to know more about Swiss, check this out.

We are also changing how the servers are booked. Players now book through the ozfortress Discord instead of IRC. 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.

This season, we also welcome a new member to the ozfortress staff - Yauch. Yauch will be managing Open with the help of /dev/zero.

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 18 roster using your existing team.

If you're new and not sure how to get started, don't fret! Check out the recruitment section where you can find or form a team. 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 be coming back strong this season. All of the Premier bracket content you could even want will be streamed live. 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 1st up until Friday the 10th of February at 11:59 PM, with the season starting on Sunday the 12th of February 2017.

RULE CHANGES AND IMPORTANT NOTES

RULE CHANGES
  • The captain of a disbanded or removed team will not be permitted to captain in the following ozfortress seasonal league.
  • Forfeits must be confirmed or chat logs must posted on the match page.

IMPORTANT NOTES TO REMEMBER (THESE ALREADY EXISTED)
  • Transfers is three part process! It is not as simple as just inviting a player. You must APPLY for the transfer.
  • There is no Bronze match for Premier.
  • Deadline for match time to be organised is Sunday 7PM.
  • You may sign up for a league with more than 10 people. This will help greatly with roster issues.
  • Use the proper map version and remember to exec config! As simple as 'rcon ozf' or 'rcon ozfkoth'.
  • No draws on maps (i.e. 3-3 on Granary) - Golden Cap must be played in this situation. However, match draws are accepted (1 map win for each team).
  • If your game is casted, proper aliases.
  • Post logs and submit/verify scores after each match PLEASE.
  • Two forfeits and your team will be removed from the league. The season is a short seven and two forfeits is more than reasonable.

MAP CHANGES SINCE LAST SEASON

Snakewater: From custom Snakewater (cp_snakewater_u13) to official Snakewater (cp_snakewater_final1). The changes were pushed to the official version of the map.
Reckoner: Updated from b3a to rc1.

New versions of the maps have been pushed to the ozfortress servers. The old versions of Reckoner and Snakewater have been removed to prevent confusion and incorrect use of maps.
