Congratulations to ad hominem attack on winning the OZF 24 Intermediate Grand Final against Sergeant ( essence! ).

After tying in the regular season and trading maps in the Upper Page Playoffs this was definitely a match to pay attention to. The series began on Gullywash, picked by winner of the UPP ad hominem attack. After a back and forth affair ad hominem attack managed to kill Sergeant ( essence! )s Medic after an Uber exchange and push last with advantage to secure the first round. The second round was much the same, both teams teams on even Ubers but however Sergeant ( essence! ) managed to push last and bring the score to 1-1. The final round started off strong for Sergeant ( essence! ), managing to kill ad hominem attacks Medic at middle and keep theirs alive. The teams leap-froged Ubers a few times and traded points. Eventually ad hominem attack managed to push last and capture the last point with two minutes to spare. Sergeant ( essence! ) was unable to win the midfight and could not win the last round. Map one finished 2-1 to ad hominem attack.

The next map was Sergeant ( essence! )'s pick, Prolands with the new and improved last point. This map was a lot slower than the previous map. The first round was very back and fourth, both teams trading Uber and points. Sergeant ( essence! ) forced ad hominem attack and caused them to fall right back to last in fear of the incoming Uber. After a few trades the decision was made to send a Scout in for the point, despite the point being blocked Sergeant ( essence! )s Sniper killed the blocker which allowed their Scout to stay on the point with 4hp and capture the objective. The second mid went in the way of Sergeant ( essence! ) after they killed ad hominem attacks Medic. About a minute later Sergeant ( essence! ) dropped Uber which allowed ad hominem attack to push out of their last and capture both second and mid. After a series of Ubercarge leap-frogs Sergeant ( essence! ) managed to work their way back into pushing into ad hominem attacks last. Again Uber Sergeant ( essence! ) droped Uber and was forced to retreat. ad hominem attack managed to push Sergeant ( essence! ) back all the way, killing their med with each Uber push, allowing them to push into last after a few frags forcing a 3rd round. After winning mid Sergeant ( essence! ) took it all the way to last. After a few minutes their Medic was killed after an Uber trade and they were not able to win the final round. The map was tied 1-1 and went to Golden Cap.

ad hominem attack won the middle of the Golden Cap. A series of player trades came in for another 7 and a half minutes of stalemates at last. Eventually Sergeant ( essence! ) sent a Soldier behind and forced ad hominem attack causing them to retreat out of lobby. Sergeant ( essence! ) tried to push mid with advantage but were a bit too late, causing an unfavorable Uber trade at mid. The collapse can in and allowed ad hominem attack to push in to last capturing the point and winning the Golden Cap.

ad hominem attack won both maps 2 - 1 crowning them as the ozfortress Season 24 Intermediate champions!

Congratulations to Big Lez and The Boys on winning the OZF 24 Open Grand Final against Gnome Zone.

The Grand Final kicked off with Gnome Zone's pick of Logjam; a still-recent addition to the ozfortress map pool. After a couple of quick rounds to the Gnome Zone side, Big Lez and The Boys snagged 5 successive rounds with some dominating midfights and created a mountainous deficit for Gnome Zone to conquer if they had any hope of taking the first map of the series. Unfortunately even after making some adjustment to their midfights and showing great level-headedness, Gnome Zone couldn't make back Big Lez and The Boys' lead and the final score for Logjam ended with 6 - 4 to Big Lez and The Boys.

With a win on the enemy's counterpick map, Big Lez and The Boys felt confident going into their map pick of Prolands. Gnome Zone hit the ground running and instantly won a round with a clean midfight and last push. After this explosive round the game slowed down into a slobberknocker, where both teams dug in and clawed for another round each in the next 12 minutes. Big Lez and The Boys' Django had an impressive performance being the damage core of his team and helped his team bring the final score to 2 - 3, and solidifying Big Lez and The Boys as the ozfortress Season 24 Open champions!

Thank you to all the players and support staff that helped make this season possible! Stay tuned for Ultiduo!

Congratulations to Coffee Clock on winning the OZF 24 Premier Grand Final against big chungus.

The ozfortress season 24 Premier Grand Final saw the epic clash between Coffee Clock and big chungus, two teams who had been trading maps and matches all season. The first map was Snakewater, and Coffee Clock hit the ground running and took the first round within four minutes. The second round was extremely hard-fought and took a whopping 19 minutes with both Medics dropping multiple times, however Coffee Clock were again able to take the round putting them two rounds up. With time running out, big chungus started taking more risks in an attempt to get rounds on the board, however Coffee Clock were able to capitalise off their mistakes and claimed another two rounds. cooki had a standout performance with 30 frags, and the map ended with a four to zero score for Coffee Clock putting them one map up in the series.

The second map was Granary, the pick of big chungus. Despite a fast first round from Coffee Clock, big chungus were able to equalise the score and get their first round of the series, putting the map score at 1 - 1. Despite the best efforts of enrith who had the highest DPM in the server, Coffee Clock were again able to close the map and take the next two rounds. Leading the way again was cooki with 29 frags, despite the fact that many consider Granary a Soldier favoured map.

Many were writing off big chungus going into the third map which was Process, believing the series to have already been won by Coffee Clock. However big chungus showed that they weren't out of the fight yet, taking the first two rounds in just five minutes. Another long and drawn-out round followed, but this time big chungus were able to come out on top and bring the map score to 3 - 0. With limited time remaining the increased aggression from Coffee Clock paid off and they were able to claim two fast rounds for themselves partly due to a miraculous 1v5 last cap from redcoatzygote, however a third round eluded them and the map finished in favour of big chungus 3 - 2. enrith led the way for his team's victory on the map, with nearly two-thousand damage more than the next highest-damaging player in the server.

Map four was Prolands. big chungus looked like they were here to stay, as they took the first round in a convincing three minute fashion. Both teams then ended up trading rounds until the scores were tied at two rounds each. Coffee Clock were were able to take round five after a back and forth fight, and then immediately take another round in under two minutes. With not enough time left to claim two more round, the map ended in favour of Coffee Clock 4 - 2, and with it the series 3 - 1. Coffee Clock are your ozfortress season 24 Premier champions!

Thank you to all the players and support staff that helped make this season possible! Stay tuned for Ultiduo!
