Congratulations to Jasmine Tea on winning the OZF 23 Premier Grand Final against xeno.

The Premier Grand Final was between the two teams who had been at the top of the leaderboard for the majority of the season. Jasmine Tea picked Logjam, the newest map to be added to the map pool for this season. The first and second rounds went to Jasmine Tea after a conving mid win and a succesful double-kill from Geoh playing spy with the revolver. With Uber advantage Jasmine Tea rolled into last and won the round. The second round was much closer, as xeno won the mid with both Medics surviving. After a failed second push from xeno, Jasmine Tea pushed them all the way back to their last. Jasmine Tea failed to convert the round however and found the rolls reversed with xeno trying to push into last. Jasmine Tea pushed out with Uber advantage and were able to force xeno back to their last. With Uber advantage Jasmine Tea managed to capture the point and win the round. xeno scrounged out two rounds after another back and forth affair, however Jasmine Tea were able to turn the aggression on xeno and take another three rounds, making the score 5 - 2.

Gullywash was the next map. The map started with both teams trading points. The first round went to Jasmine Tea after 9 minutes of intense fighting, with a failed push being salvaged by Paulsen killing the Soldier on last and capturing the point while xeno were trying to capture their second point. Jasmine Tea took the next round convincingly. Again, xeno took the next two rounds after a long stalemate at mid and after almost wiping Jasmine Tea at the midfight. Jasmine Tea again won the next two rounds convincingly, however xeno responded with another round win of their own. With two minutes left xeno needed to win the next mid convincingly in order to force the map into a golden cap, however the defenses of Jasmine Tea were too strong, and Jasmine Tea took the map 4 - 3 and putting themselves up two maps to zero in the series.

The third map was Prolands, picked by Jasmine Tea. The pressure was on as xeno needed to win this map in order to stay in match. The first round did not go as planned for xeno, with them being wiped at mid. Jasmine Tea quickly took advantage of that and rolled into last to secure round one. After two failed last pushes Jasmine Tea was able to push xeno right back to their last. xeno were unable to hold off the momentum of Jasmine Tea and the next round went to Jasmine Tea. Dispite winning the next two mids, Jasmine Tea were able to take control of the map off a Medic pick at mid and convert the next two rounds. The match was looking dire with xeno needing to win 4 rounds in 12 minutes. Possible, but difficult. There was a lot of back and forth action, much to Jasmine Tea's delight, slowly taking the clock back to make it impossible for xeno to win the map. After a monstrous 42-frag performance from lams, the map ended 4 - 0 in favour of Jasmine Tea. They were able to take the series 3 - 0 and are your ozfortress season 23 Premier champions!

Thank you to all the players and support staff that helped make this season possible! Stay tuned for A Midsummer Night's Cup 2019!

ozfortress Presents: A Midsummer Night's Cup 2019 #1

https://i.imgur.com/VKuR6Q0.jpg

After a fantastic OZF 23, we are happy to announce the event of this holiday season - ozfortress Presents: A Midsummer Night's Cup 2019, where teams will compete over two separate one-night cups in multiple brackets. Midsummer Night's Cup 1 will be held on the 16th of December and Midsummer Night's Cup 2 will follow in mid-January.

The cups are designed to be a casual, laid-back event for over the summer, especially after three seasons of the flagship league run back to back. Focusing on a relaxed experience, there will be three brackets - Premier, Intermediate and Open. Premier and Intermediate will have 8 teams while Open will have 16, signups permitting. All brackets will be a single elimination bracket, over a single night.

Each match will be a best-of-one with maps being set, using a win-difference of 5 / 30 minutes format. King of the Hill maps are played to a first to three format.

Ties are not allowed, and can be resolved by Golden Cap, which is first to 1 / 10 minutes. If no one caps last at the end of 10 minutes, the team that owns the middle point will be declared the winner.

For the first cup, we welcome the return of some maps we have seen on ozfortress servers in the past, most notably cp_metalworks and cp_reckoner. We are also seeing the return of koth_bagel, a map that has featured in A Midsummer Night's Cup in the past. Making their ozfortress debuts will be koth_waterton and koth_synthetic! These two King of the Hill maps are very promising and we're excited to see how they play!

Unfortunately, as this is a One Night Cup, there will be NO badges for this event.

As the schedule for this tournament is tight, teams must be ready with at least 5 rostered players in the server by the round start time. If a team is more than FIVE minutes late, your bracket's league administrator MUST be contacted and a forfeit win will be recorded. DO NOT DELAY YOUR MATCH AS A COURTESY TO A LATE TEAM. ONE DELAYED MATCH DELAYS THE WHOLE TOURNAMENT. Note that 5CP matches can go for 40 minutes with a Golden Cap, so this must be followed closely.

ozfortress servers will be used for this competition, but they will be distributed by ozfortress League Administrators through Warzone. Be sure to be in the ozfortress Discord for ease of communication.

Since there are multiple brackets, all administrators will be separated into respective brackets much like the seasonal league. League administrators and their respective brackets will be announced when signups have ended.

In Warzone, 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 roster for any given tournament. Captains may sign up a roster for tournaments under the league page.

If you are using an existing team, you do not have to recreate your team again! Simply sign up your A Midsummer Night's Cup 2019 roster using your existing team!

The ruleset for the Midsummer Night's Cups differ slightly from the ruleset used in the regular seasonal leagues. Be sure to have a read of the changes to make sure you are up to date. These have been outlined in the following posts and also in the FAQ.

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 1 Medic, 1 Demoman, 2 Soldiers and 2 Scouts. If you're new to the competitive scene, click here for an introduction to ozfortress! Whether you're a veteran or new to the scene, get on a team and come play!

We are really keen to get this out for people to know about this - form your teams, and get ready to play some great TF2. Signups are open now, right up until Friday the 14th of December at 11:59 PM

Match

Congratulations to The Big Monstrosity on winning the OZF 23 Open Grand Final against N1nja Death Squad.

The series began on the newest addition to the ozfortress map pool: Logjam. The pick of The Big Monstrosity, they quickly showed dominance with two extremely fast round wins. N1nja Death Squad were able to answer back however, and after some back and forth brawling between the two teams they were able to claim two rounds of their own and equalise the scores. Despite this resistance, N1nja Death Squad were unable to stop the dominating performance of Johnny and The Big Monstrosity took the next four rounds in a row, taking the map 6 - 2.

N1nja Death Squad picked Process and immediately sent a statement to The Big Monstrosity after taking the first round in only one minute and thirty-six seconds. The next three rounds were much more hard-fought, but N1nja Death Squad were able to claim them all, ultimately winning the map 4 - 0 thanks to impressive performances from their Scout combo of K1ng and chill.

The last map of the series was Gullywash, and The Big Monstrosity looked reinvigorated. Despite the defenses of N1nja Death Squad, The Big Monstrosity were able to claim the first four rounds of the map. With no time left for a comeback, The Big Monstrosity were able to claim the map 4 - 0 and the series 2 - 1 and become your ozfortress season 23 Open Champions!

Thank you to all the players and support staff that helped make this season possible! Stay tuned for A Midsummer Night's Cup 2019!
