Current leagues and competitions
ozfl: the ozfortress league
The ozfortress league is the longest running competition in Australia/New Zealand. The ozfortress league consists of all clans at every different skill level without divisions, with rounds determined based on win/loss streaks. This league is seen as an introduction to competitive fortress gaming, a trial of new competitive-designed maps, and the basis of getting an invitation into the ozfortress winter league series.
owl: the ozfortress winter league series
The premier ozfortress competition, the ozfortress winter league series is a closed, round-robin based competition run seasonally and divided into a number of distinct divisions. Clans must apply to join the competition prior to the season's commencing, and clan rosters are locked aside from three transfer windows during the season.
ozhl: the ozfortress highlander league
The ozfortress highlander league provides a unique opportunity for clans to compete in the newer "highlander", or 9v9 with each class limited to one player, game style.
ozfc: the ozfortress cup
The ozfortress cup is a double elimination, 16 team format, exhibition competition that was held at the end of 2009 and 2010, involving the top 12 clans of the year with another 8 wildcards involved in knockout matches to fill the final 4 slots.
ultiduo is a 2v2 tournament where teams are comprised of a traditional "combo" (a soldier and medic pair). Combos duel each other in a specially designed king of the hill map, forcing a reliance on both deathmatching skill and tactical awareness. The format is run in the single elimination style on a single night of incomparably fast paced action.
ozfortress state of origin
ozfortress State of Origin is a traditional 6v6 double elimination tournament in which Australasia's top players represent not their usual clans, but the state or territory in which they reside.
capping for a cause
Capping for a Cause, (or C4C), is a 6v6 fundraising competition involving a maximum of 16 teams fighting it out in a double elimination scenario. In order to raise money, teams are asked to "buy their seed" in the competition by making a donation upon sign-up. Higher donations result in higher seedings, easing the path of a team through the competition. Capping for a Cause has been run three times thus far, raising thousands of dollars for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue. Throughout the 3 competitions, almost $7000 has been raised.
A number of one-off competitions have been run by ozfortress, including the KritzKast Offclass Cup, Custom Fortress League, ClanSport TF2 Masters, netGameRadio invitational and Civil War.
