ozfortress enforces a set of Community Rules and Competitive Rules by a system of infraction points. You are issued infraction points which correspond to specific rule breaches, and carry different points and expiration times. Each player starts with 0 infraction points.
Bans will be issued at different point levels, and carry different ban lengths and game bans depending on how many points you have accrued. All bans are accompanied by permanent probation.
Additionally, we list the infractions that can be issued and their corresponding rule.
A community ban restricts the player’s usage of all official ozfortress mediums including the ozfortress Discord and forums. A competitive ban prevents the player from participating in any ozfortress leagues and competitions. Players will be blacklisted from all ozfortress servers and have their Warzone accounts suspended for the duration of the ban.
The Infraction team reserves the right to infract or ban players based on the offence, including offences committed whilst that player is already serving an infraction and/or ban.
- 40 points = 3 round match ban
- 60 points = 1 year Community and Competitive Ban
- 90 points = 2 year Community and Competitive Ban
The 3 round match ban carries across from the offseason, so if it is received during the offseason, it will begin at the start of the next regular season for rounds one, two & three.
Each specific infraction will be multiplied by the number of times committed.
First offence (tier 1) = 10 points
Second repeated offence (tier 1) = 20 points
Third repeated offence (tier 1) = 30 points
Infraction points do not expire after a user is banned. If a user receives a one year ban involving a Tier 3 infraction, the infraction will still remain for the remainder of the two year expiry after the player’s one year ban has been served.

- VAC = 1 year Community and Competitive Ban
- Match Fixing = 1 year Community and Competitive Ban
- Evidence from Anti-Cheat team = 2 year Community and Competitive Ban
