PLAYOFFS

All divisions will be using single elimination semi finals with the top four teams of each division going through to semi finals after the group stage.

FORMAT

Much like regular ozfortress seasons, the ozfortress winter league 2021 will feature weekly matches for teams over the course of three weeks. However, teams will be required to play one best of three match per week instead of the typical two maps that is seen in standard ozfortress seasons.

All matches in the ozfortress winter league 2021 will utilise a pick/ban system. The pick ban format will be as follows:

  1. The higher seeded or home team will either choose to ban first or defer.
  2. The first team (determined by the result of step one) will ban a map.
  3. The second team will ban a map.
  4. The first team will ban a map.
  5. The second team will ban a map.
  6. The first team will select the first map from the remaining pool.
  7. The second team will select the second map from the remaining pool.
  8. The first team will select the tiebreaker map from the remaining maps.
