What was the reasoning behind removing the mod limit, I'm curious why a change like this was made because teams can abuse a mod pool by having half the team orientated around a certain mod and either forcing a tiebreaker or simply a win if the opponent loses even one. I'm not saying that this is a bad change to the rule, I just find the change sudden compared to other OWCs and other tournaments.

Aside from that I hope the best for team Canada and Singapore <3

It has been like this since owc2014?
What i found more interesting is that hd/hr/dt only have 2 maps as opposed to 3 before.

Ahh, I'm dumb. The 2 mod is probably to remedy the fact that there are free player swaps then

I would say having only 2 maps per mod bracket and only 1 ban is oriented to have a overall more balanced team in order to win a match. Before, if you had a team that was good at DT and HD for example you would have 6 good picks agains 2 potential bans.

This time around with only 2 and 1 ban it will be 3 out of 4 good picks that you can abuse of so matches are more likely going to be decided by who has the overall better team in everything.

Come on Hong Kong!

They did so well last year, having made it into finals (and also being the only high seeded team in the finals). Hope they can strive again :D

Is there a reason why there's no separate mappool for the Grand Final again?

iirc the excuse last year was that there were not enough hard maps

this year we have heaps of hard maps, there's really no excuse to not having a separate mappool

The registration phase is still ongoing, so it's too soon for that information to be released. Teams are normally released after the registration phase has ended and all applications have been checked by the tournament management. Respecting the mappool, the one of the Group Stage will be released at the exact day of the live drawings (4 Nov 2016) and at the end of every week the mappool for the next phase will be released.

Quick thought but wouldn't it be cool if they include EZ and/or HT mod into the mappool?
We could lower the amount of maps from all other mod pools by 1 and add EZ/HT pool in to provide them a higher chance to be picked
