Community Guidelines

Community Wide

ozfortress is a community that caters to any players who want to play Team Fortress competitively and socially. The community is run by administrators who rely heavily on all members for each action they take. The administration team is made up of current and past community members who have volunteered their own time to run and oversee the community.

Each member of ozfortress is held to account by the below standards and each rule is enforced by the administration team and behavioural panel. As a member of ozfortress, how you behave in-game is just as important as your actions in other mediums (such as Discord, on our website, Steam chat). The administration team values each member’s experience as most important to its continued success. ozfortress is not just about competitive gaming, it is a community that offers a range of social and gaming opportunities to its members.
