ozfortress Sixes Winter '24 (S40)

Demo Recording Rule Changes
To better our league's Anti-Cheat, we will now be able to request POV demos from ANY match played on an ozfortress server - official, scrim, pug game or otherwise. Whilst we understand there will be some apprehension to this change, it is only happening because we feel it will contribute to improving the league. Scrim POV demo requests will be worked into the existing failure penalties. Unlike official match POV demo requests, the first penalty for failing to provide a scrim POV demo is a warning. After this, the next second penalty follows the same guidelines as the official match POV requests, meaning that if you fail two scrim POV demo requests you will receive a six-month ban. It is important to note that we will not conduct random demo checks for any match that isn't an official match. This means that if you receive a request for a POV demo from a scrim or pug, it is related to an active Anti-Cheat report.

Staff Updates

With another season, comes multi ple changes - an inevitable part of life is other priorities taking up your time. With that, we are sad to announce that down, wills, raina and multi have decided to pursue other ventures and step down from the league administration team. However, that does leave room for new talent and ideas! Both new and old, inStinct will be joining as our first new 6's Trial Admin. catfish will be (re)joining the team as a league administrator! Finally, with many seasons of experience as a league administrator, Hawk will take on the Sixes Head Administrator position in multi's stead.


Changes affecting Winter '24 seasons can be found here.


Reminders

  • During Sixes Winter '24, we plan to conduct random demo checks to ensure players are recording POV demos. Please ensure that you are recording all scrims and officials to avoid punishment. You can do this via the in-game demo system following our guide which you can find here.
  • If you are unsure if something is considered a game exploit, contact a League Administrator for clarification. Ignorance is not an excuse.
