ozfortress Fours Summer Cup ‘24

Completed




Fours makes its triumphant return to Australian shores

ozfortress is excited to (re)introduce Fours! Fours last saw play in Australia several years ago, and many expressed interest in its return in post-season polls.

What is Fours?

Fours is a 4v4 gamemode predominately played on King of the Hill maps. Fours features a class limit of 1 for every class, however teams are unable to run a Heavy and Medic on the same team.

Fours draws similarities to Sixes (6v6), with teams often running the following line up:

  • 1 Scout
  • 1 Soldier
  • 1 Demoman
  • 1 Medic

However, don't let this limit you! Historically, teams have run other classes (Pyro and Sniper for example) to great success.

Prizes

We want your frags clips. All you need to do is play the cup, hit a clip, and follow the instructions provided here.

Signups

You can sign up for the Fours Summer Cup ‘24 from now (Sunday the 7th of January), up until Wednesday the 24th of January. We aim to have seeding out Friday the 26th of January before the cup starts, with the cup being split up into two days over a weekend, Saturday the 27th of January and Sunday the 28th of January.


Schedule & Format

All group stage matches on Day 1 will be played as best-of-ones with predetermined maps. There will be five matches that will decide the seeding for the playoffs on Day 2. The top four teams from the group stages will go through to the playoffs on Day 2. All playoff matches will be single elimination and best-of-threes with predetermined maps.

Match Procedure

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.


What Else Are We Testing?

In preparation for its adoption in the upcoming Sixes and Highlander Autumn '24 season, we are testing the Team Captain Discord. All communication between admins and team captains, as well as match organisation, will occur in this Discord. Once signups have closed, all team captains will be invited to join this server.


Reminders

  • During the Fours Summer Cup '24 we plan on conducting random demo checks to ensure players are recording POV demos. This will be done as part of our Team Captain Discord testing, so each team should expect at least one player have a demo requested. Please ensure that you are recording match demos in order to avoid punishment.
  • If you are unsure of whether or not something is considered a game exploit, contact a League Administrator for clarification. Ignorance is not an excuse.
