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
