Welcome back everyone! After the Revival Cup 2018, ozfortress season 23 is upon us, the flagship competitive TF2 event for the Oceanic region returns for the third and final time in 2018. As usual, the league will be run using the highly successful Warzone. Whether you are a hardened veteran of the scene or a newcomer to 6v6 TF2 there will be a place for you in ozfortress season 23 and we hope to see you there!

ozfortress season 23 also marks the return of cp_logjam. Logjam was last seen on Australian servers in 2015 and we're excited to see it make its ozfortress seasonal league debut! It will take the place of cp_granary_pro_rc8 in the active map pool.

OZF 23 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 continue using the Page Playoffs format. Grand Finals for Premier shall be played as a no-advantage best of 5, while Open and Intermediate Grand Finals will be 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.

All server booking will continue to 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.

In Warzone, 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 pool of players that can be signed up for a tournament. Players may be in the pool for multiple teams but only one Roster for any given tournament. Captains may sign up a Roster for tournaments under the League page.

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. If you're new to the competitive scene, click here for an introduction to ozfortress!

Please ensure you have enough backups to last the season; teams are allowed a maximum of 10 players rostered for any single tournament.

With a host of experienced casters and expert producers, TFLIVE remains your number 1 destination for ozfortress coverage. Catch live coverage on the TFLIVE Twitch channel and find VODs of previous games on the TFLIVE YouTube.

You can sign up for ozfortress season 23 from Saturday the 8th of September up until Wednesday the 19th of September. We aim to have seeding out by the 22nd, with the season starting on the 23rd . This gap between the closing of signups and the start of the season is to give the administration team more time to seed, ozfortress season 23 will begin on Sunday the 23rd of September.

RULE CHANGES, CLARIFICATIONS AND IMPORTANT NOTES

RULE CHANGES
  • Added: The maximum number of mercinaries a team is allow to have at any given time has been adjusted to two.
  • Added: Failure to submit demos when requested by an administrator will now result in a 4-week ban. This has been upped from the previous 2-week ban.

RULE CLARIFICATIONS
  • Pauses may now be tactical as well as technical (any type of pause will draw from the permitted 10 minutes of pause time for each team).

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.
  • Deadline for match time to be organised is Sunday 7PM.
  • 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). The config for Golden Cap is 'rcon golden'.
  • If your game is casted by an approved casting organisation, proper aliases are required. There are now infractions for disobeying this rule.
  • Post logs and submit/verify scores after each match. This applies to both the home and away team.
  • Two forfeits and your team will be removed from the league. The season is a short seven weeks and two forfeits is more than reasonable.
