Earlier tonight, teams participating in the Summer Brawl 2023 LAN event received an attendee guide which details what to bring, risk management, schedule, etc. An inclusion in the guide regarding behaviour management at this event states the following;
“Antisocial behaviour will not be tolerated and there will be no warnings. ozfortress infractions can and will be handed out for poor behaviour and may lead to being banned from future LAN events.”
We wanted to give some much needed insight into ozfortress’ working relationship with the Summer Brawl 2023’s team so those attending are aware of our own involvement. From Day 1, we remained adamant that we were providing the LAN team with a platform to host this event (the ozfortress website), and would help promote it through our discord server and social medias. We have taken issue in the past with internal planning surrounding certain event responsibilities, and would just like to reaffirm our position publicly regarding behaviour management at the Summer Brawl 2023. ozfortress will not make use of its infraction system for an event that is not ours, nor will we ever. The infraction system isn’t to be loaned out or used outside of ozfortress. In saying this, if any behaviour at the event warrants serious review or barring from ozfortress services, we will not be afraid to do so. We ask that everyone makes themselves aware of what the rules at this venue and event are, and hope everyone enjoys their time at the event in a way befitting functioning members of society.
We hope this clarifies some concerns attendees have regarding our position, as we share those concerns also.
