How do you get fked?
In our old banning system the enemy team would ban out your strongest maps or their weakest map.
In the new banning system each team picks hes strongest map & then bans 1 map they dont like.
Its more interesting like this.

In case the other teams picks a map that really doesnt suit your team , there is still the decider map. Since the map you pick yourself should be the map where you feel most confident on.

And if you reach to the BO3 matches , you will have to face them anyway on whatever map.
You dont know what map it will be , so just be sure you are prepared.  


Itas more important to be able to ban the map you hate most, than being able to play the one you like most, IMO

and as said, the good teams are there, they practice multiple maps and should be strong on most, but NOT all

some may not suit them since their playstyle is different (for example team utilizing 5 rifles would probably prefer to ban huge map like airplane), or in my case, (as a colorblind person) I would ban a map that has poor visibility in important areas or is generaly not suited to my team

just my POV on this, I am sure many people would prefer it the usual way instead of pick 1 map out of 5

I dont think any team would pick airplane as its main map.
Same for Fox and Radar in future.
So whats left?
Cannon , India , Dual & Hammer. (Black scent is deleted from list)
If you dont like those maps , your playing the wrong game imo.

But anyway , this is the new banning system & we wanna try it out on the next cups.
It was an idea of tapi & all admins are interested in it.
Just give it a try , if its not good or has any kind of issues , we will delete it.

I wish you and your team the best of luck for this tournament & lets get on topic again ;D

see thats what brings the issue

most teams dont like fox and radar, but we cant even ban it, now lets look at starting teams or not so long established ones, most practice the 4 maps you listed, then a long time team or one who knew of this to happen could practice those maps already and pretty much get a free win


why it happens to be that the admins of ESL from top 2 teams decide on this anyway?

I dunno how satisfied some teams like blast/noir or whichever top team doesnt have admins would be at this, whereas crackheads/caprice could already be practicing just the map that some other top team hates to have a free round win

really bad change of rules and in such short notice

personally I am not too fond of this when looking at the fairness and how this gives advantage to those that knew of this beforehand, I can easily relate this to last Iesf where the actual rules were given to teams 1 DAY before start of tournament, I am pretty sure EU and NA teams werent happy seeing they cant use XM8s and that Iyans are allowed which changes a lot (and makes famas mk3, mp7, m4 mk3 even less efficient compared to paras)

are you really sure you want to make questionable decisions like that, and find loopholes to cheat much like how many times Korean teams were seen doing

I know i might be making too much of a big deal out of this, but I am just pointing this out, before even bigger things happen and give advantage to those that have inside info on that and can alter the rules to their liking

Using is not allowed.
There is no dropping rule.

Binoglitching will be forwarded to GMs.
