As per ozfortress seasonal league’s transfer rules, teams may apply to have transfers of players onto their rosters throughout the season. Captains may apply for a player’s transfer at any time, however be aware of the eligibility and team limit restrictions.
Transfers are moderated via a fortnightly Transfer Window system for regular seasonal competitions, more information can be found at the bottom of the current season or competitions' league page. For applicants to be eligible to play in a particular round, the transfer application must be submitted by 11:59PM AEST/AEDT time the Thursday of the previous transfer window. Players whose applications were submitted after the cutoff may still play as a mercenary, however all normal mercenary rules apply and therefore they may not be used if they have played as a mercenary in a previous round or are denied by the other team. Administrators will have decisions before the start of the next round.
When approving transfers, league administrators take into account the skill of the requested player, the skill of the team and the skill of the overall division. Because of this, transfers are often denied on the basis of the requested player being too skilled for their team or division. Please keep this in mind when requesting transfers as no transfers are ever guaranteed. Make sure your team is prepared in the event of a transfer being denied.
The last week for transfers is Week 6. Rosters are locked after that week for Week 7 and playoffs. Transfers will be approved by administrators no later than Saturday at 11:59 PM.
Teams are reminded that transfers are not guaranteed. If issues come up that may impact team stability you must contact your bracket administrator as soon as possible.
