Current Leagues and Competitions[edit]

OZF: the ozfortress Seasonal League[edit]

Announced on the 24th February, 2016, the ozfortress seasonal league is the successor to the organization's previous OWL tournaments that concluded with OWL 14 and were continued into OZF 15 and beyond. The tournament has been ran triannually since its inception and features five tiers: Premier, High, Intermediate, Main and Open. Main was introduced as a solution to sandbagging and to provide a middle ground between Open and Intermediate. The tier debuted for OZF 25.

MSNC: A Midsummer Night's Cup[edit]

A Midsummer Night's Cup are a series of single-night 6v6 competitions that were run twice a summer from 2017 through to 2019. From 2020 however, MSNC have been run at irregular intervals with the recent addition of a MSNC Highlander league. Teams are split into three divisions - either Premier, Intermediate and Open or Divisions 1 through 3. The focus for these cups is to provide ozfortress players with a more casual laid-back experience in between seasons. Hence, many MSNC tournaments have seen looser team compositions and more extensive offclassing than the ozfortress seasonal league.

Previous Leagues and Competitions[edit]

This section covers currently inactive ozfortress leagues or competitions. This includes those that have been formally concluded and those that may return in future years.

OWL: the ozfortress Winter League[edit]

The ozfortress winter league, was the premier competition series run by ozfortress. It was a seasonal, round-robin 6v6 invitational that ran approximately twice a year. Teams were split into skill based divisions, from Division 1 or Premier down to Division 6. However, the number of divisions often varied between seasons depending on the number of teams registered. A typical competition ran over 10 weeks of matches and teams were invited to apply for selection before the competition began. OWL was later phased out in favour of the ozfortress seasonal league following OWL 14. Recently however, the ozfortress winter league has made a comeback in the form of OWL 2021, running alongside the existing OZF seasonal league.

OZFL: the ozfortress league[edit]

The ozfortress league was the longest running competition in Australia/New Zealand. The ozfortress league was a ladder competition, open to teams of all skill levels. Match scheduling was determined by a team's win/loss streak, which provided them with the opportunity to face opponents at other skill levels, or opponents they would otherwise never meet in regular scrimmage. This league was seen as a proving ground for new maps designed for the competitive community, and was paired with a less restrictive weapon banlist. OZFL was largely regarded as a pathway into ozfortress' previous premier competition, the ozfortress winter league (OWL) series.

OZFC: the ozfortress cup[edit]

The ozfortress cup was a double elimination exhibition competition. The cup had 16 slots, 12 of which were occupied by the top 12 teams of the year. The remaining 4 slots were claimed as eight 'wildcards' who competed with each other in a qualifier format.

C4C: Capping for a Cause[edit]

Capping for a Cause (stylised as Capping 4 a Cause, or C4C) is a 16 team, open double-elimination competition aimed at raising funds for a named charity. Teams are asked to 'buy' their seeding by donating to the charity, where the highest seeds are given to the highest donating teams, providing them with a scheduling advantage throughout the tournament. Over the first three iterations of C4C, over $7000 has been raised for charities. These include the Australian Cancer Research Foundation, BeyondBlue and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
