Thread: ozfortress Head Administrator Changes
catfish Administrator & Head of Anti-Cheat

It is with some sadness that I am stepping down as the Head Administrator of ozfortress. After over three years in the role, I no longer have the time to commit to running the league that I used to, and as a result of this I believe that ozfortress would be better off with someone new at the helm. During my time as head admin I believe the league has become a bit more experimental and I hope that the changes that have remained, such as the introduction of the Main division and the nine-map pool, have improved the league for everyone.

Taking over from me is League Administrator core. core has the experience and understanding to excel in the role and there is no safer pair of hands for ozfortress. I would like to thank all league admins for assisting with the day to day running of the league, it would not be possible without you all. I would also like to thank obla and /dev/zero for their continued assistance and dedication over the years. Thank you to all Patrons, past and present, for helping maintain ozfortress infrastructure and ensuring the league can continue. Lastly, I’d like to thank all players and members of the ozfortress community. TF2’s continued longevity is all due to the dedication and passion of the community behind it.

Thank you,
catfish

Match Thread

Congratulations to ALT on winning the OZF 31 Premier Grand Final against rhombus craniums.

Coming into the final as the first seed, ALT had the first map pick and they opted for Sunshine. The map was initially close, with both teams playing passively in order to avoid giving the other team an advantage. After 11 minutes, it was ALT who gathered themselves and were able to put the first round of the series on the board. This round appeared to give them momentum as they then steamrolled three more rounds in less time it took them to take the first. With no rounds to their name and time dwindling, rhombus craniums needed multiple midfight-to-last pushes in they wanted a chance to bring the map back. They managed to get one round of their own, but ultimately ALT were able to stall them out and take the map victor 4 - 1. Doge and Elmo were a force to be reckoned with on Sunshine, with nearly 50 frags combined.

rhombus craniums chose Gullywash as their map choice, however they got off to a poor start, A quick three-minute round from ALT showed that the momentum was still clearly in their favour. rhombus craniums struggled to come up with an answer to ALT's aggression, and the home team were able to take two more rounds. Finally, rhombus craniums appeared to gather themselves and find a solution for ALT's aggression. After a gruelling ten-minute round, rhombus craniums were finally able to take their first round of the map. ALT and co. quickly asserted their dominance however, taking the next round in a very quick two minutes. With no time left for rhombus craniums to get as many rounds as they needed, the map once again ended 4 - 1 in the favour of ALT. The duo of ALT and Daz were a powerhouse on Gullywash, with both players putting out over 330 DPM.

The next map was Clearcut, the latest addition to the ozfortress map pool. rhombus craniums needed to win the map in order to keep their tournament life on the line. It initially appeared that rhombus craniums had come into the third map with a renewed vigor, as they took the first round putting them ahead on a map for the first time all evening. ALT and co. took that personally, however, and answered back with the next two rounds. It was do or die for rhombus craniums and they successfully converted when they needed to, putting us at 2 - 2 with one round left. The final round saw both teams trading point control multiple, with neither team able to find their footing and hold the point for an extended period of time. With seconds left on the clock for both teams, a fantastic Uber from ALT and co. picked up three frags. With player and heal disadvantage, rhombus craniums had no choice but to make one last push for the point but the experience of ALT was too much, and they held the point to take the map 3 - 2 and the series 3 - 0 to become your ozfortress season 31 Premier champions! Another impressive performance from Doge and Elmo with a combined 75 frags was driving force behind ALT's victory.

Thank you to all the players, support staff and patrons that helped make this season possible. We'll see you all again soon!

Thread: Announcing the ozfortress winter league 2021!
catfish Administrator & Head of Anti-Cheat

Stuck in lockdown with nothing to do? Then don't worry, because OWL is back! The ozfortress winter league has returned with a new look and a new format for 2021.

The ozfortress winter league 2021 will see teams play one best of three match per week over the course of three weeks, for a total of three group stage matches . Each of these matches will feature a pick/ban system, giving teams a great deal of control over the maps they play. At the end of the group stage, the top four teams from each division will go to playoffs. Playoffs will feature single elimination best of three matches spread out over one week. For more information about the format and schedule, click here.

The map pool for the ozfortress winter league 2021 will comprise of seven maps. Most of these maps have just been played in previous seasons, so they will be a familiar sight to many. We will, however, be playing the lastest version of Mannbase, made by our very own skaz. We'll also be playing the newly-released koth_product_final.

There will be three to five divisions in the ozfortress winter league 2021. Depending on the number of signups we receive, we may adjust the number of skill divisions after signups have closed. We will use numbered divisions (e.g. Division 1, Division 2) for the traditional OWL feel.

During the ozfortress winter league 2021 we plan on conducting random demo checks to ensure players are recording demos. Please ensure that you are recording match demos in order to avoid punishment. All plugins added to ozfortress servers in and prior to OZF 30 will remain in place. No more have been added.

There will be no transfers during the ozfortress winter league 2021. The rosters that teams sign up with will be the rosters that they finish the season with. It is very important teams sign up with enough substitutes to finish the tournament. No exceptions will be made.

Servers can be booked through the ozfortress Discord. Simply join the #bookings channel in the ozfortress Discord and type /book and details of your server booking will be PM'd to you. To view more commands, type /help in the #bookings channel.

On the ozfortress website, captains can create Teams using the "Start Team" button on the Teams page. Once created, captains can invite players to the team. Team invites are shown on a player's profile, which can be accessed by clicking on your name next to the bell on the top right hand corner of your screen. Teams provide a pool of players that can be signed up for a tournament. Players may be in the pool for multiple teams but only one active roster for any given tournament. Captains may sign up a roster for tournaments under the league page.

If you're new and not sure how to get started, don't fret! Check out the #recruitment section of the ozfortress Discord where you can express your interest in joining a team, or peruse potential players to form a team of your own. Teams are normally comprised of one Medic, one Demoman, two Soldiers and two Scouts. If you're new to the competitive scene, click here for an introduction to ozfortress!

Please ensure you have enough backups to last the season; teams are allowed a maximum of ten players rostered on for any single tournament.

You can sign up for the ozfortress winter league 2021 from Thursday the 5th of August up until Thursday the 12th of August. Seeding will be out on the 15th of August with the season starting on the same day. This gap between the closing of signups and the start of the season is to give the administration team more time to seed. The ozfortress winter league 2021 will begin on Sunday the 15th of August.
