Forts Tournament VI - Winner Balrock

G'day Forts Fans! After some delay, we have our sixth Forts Supreme Champion. The NA and EU brackets had been played out in fine style, with T1meToCaRRy blasting his way to the finals in the EU bracket, while Balrock crushed the competition in the NA bracket.

The two came together this weekend past to face off in the best-of-five series. It was a tough and damaging sequence of battles, with the mortar at the center of the carnage, but eventually Balrock came through to claim the top prize. As well as keys, he will receive the black and gold champions tshirt, with runners up getting a Forts commander promotional tshirt.

If you're keen to watch the finals action, or pick up some strategies, jump over to Quxzcover's YouTube Channel.

Thanks for playing Forts, and if you want to join in on the next tournament (this time featuring commanders), or just get involved with and battle other members of the Forts online community, head over to the Official Forts Discord server!

Update Live - Build 2017-08-11a inc Dueling Vipers 4v4

G'day Forts Fans! Welcome to this week's update, complete with new map Dueling Vipers 4v4. This update adds a few minor features and fixes which improve team death match, and also includes an important fix which ensures doors are closed after repair. We’re aware of the lobby connection and desync issues, including when joining a battle in progress. These are being investigated.

Dueling Vipers 4v4

High up in the middle eastern mountains, two ancient snakes are caught in time about to strike at each other. Or at least that's what it looks like. Attached to their faces are four forts apiece, with three differing styles of play: standing, hanging and cliff face. Whichever you choose, the battle is sure to be intense!

Build 2017-08-11a Changelist
Add: Dueling Vipers 4v4 map
Add: Notification in console of who was taken out in TDM, with time stamp
