ozfortress BBall 1: Autumn Action Part 2
ozfortress is excited to introduce BBall!
part two of our Autumn Action off-season
ozfortress is excited to introduce BBall (short for Basket Ball), aptly named BBall 1 for the first iteration. BBall 1 will be a one-night cup that is the second part of our Autumn Action this off-season. We feel that this popular community-made format needed some time in the spotlight, and we are excited to see where it goes in the future!
What is BBall?
Basketball (“BBall” for short) is a Capture-The-Flag, 2v2 gamemode where 2 teams of Soldiers try to capture the intelligence up to 20 times or before the time runs out. The team to first reach the goal of 20 captures in a match, or the one with the most captures once the time limit of 10 minutes is reached, wins the match.
You can sign up for ozfortress BBall 1 from now (Friday the 26th of May) up until Wednesday the 31st of May 2023 at 11:59PM AEST. We aim to have seeding out by late Friday the 2nd of June with the cup live on Saturday the 3rd of June 2023.
For BBall 1, there will be only one skill bracket, Division 1. BBall 1 will be a one-night cup more reminiscent of the cups of old. You can find the schedule for Saturday the 3rd on the Schedule page, linked at the top under "Helpful Links".
All matches will be a Best-of-1 in a Single Elimination format. However, the Semi-Finals and the Grand Final will be a Best-of-3. Unlike Ultiduo 15 where the top 8 teams were seeded and the rest randomized, we will be seeding all teams to the best of our ability given the time constraints. We hope this will offer a fairer, more competitive, and more fun match experience. We encourage players to join the ozfortress Discord as important announcements will be delivered via the platform on the night.
For BBall 1, we will be running only one map alike Ultiduo 17. Our region has seen Ozone before, when Respawn League ran it's seasonal BBall league. Since then, Ozone has seen some updates by core, namely RC5, which offers a refreshed look to the map ready for BBall 1. A massive thank you to the original author harris0n/C L U N K for allowing Ozone to be updated. Ozone has been updated to RC5, which ozfortress' version is based off, available to download here or above!
When each round starts, matches will be generated. Teams will need to communicate who will be booking the server, with the base expectation that the Home team will book the server (see the Booking guides under the Helpful links at the top of the page for more information on how to book). Teams will need to both load the map, and execute the config before playing. We have allowed for extra time between matches, but the scheduling will still be fairly tight.
Please start each game as soon as possible as there is a tight schedule, and delaying will delay the entire cup. If the other team has not shown up five minutes after the server has been booked, message an administrator to claim your forfeit win. Please DO NOT delay for the other team as a courtesy.
After the match is over, please submit / confirm the scores IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE MATCH IS OVER. Posting of logs is not mandatory but logs will be used for solving disputes.
Server Booking Guides can be found at the top of this page under "Helpful Links". This time around, there will be 10-12 servers available via au.serveme.tf for players to use. Thanks to Rhizome, you can also book and use a Rhizome server using the same commands below.

These commands will work on both ozfortress and Rhizome servers.
By signing up, you acknowledge that you may be placed in any division the administrators deem fit for your roster, and thus your entire team should be reasonable in their expectations on division placement. Please ensure you specify the division you truly believe your team should be in, this will make it easier for administrators to consult with you on your seeding. Along with selecting your desired division, please also list who you expect to play, and what class/role. We've left a template below, please include it in your signup application's description.

- During BBall 1, we plan on monitoring to ensure players are recording demos. Please ensure that you are recording match demos in order to avoid punishment.
- If you are unsure on whether or not something is considered a game exploit, contact a League Administrator for clarification. Ignorance of the ruleset is not an excuse.
