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

For Half Time it doesnt really make much sense. For EZ, even tho I think it was considered it is likely (if not guaranteed) that it wont be used.


Also this thread is really quiet, I wonder whats going on...

The drama won't start until the players have been chosen for each of the countries.

I'm waiting to see the Hong Kong lineup for this year. If they were able to make to finals last year, then there's hope!

GO GO Poland! at least this year you have to make it! It is high time...

the rules for freemod mod picks state:

7. The FreeMod bracket will have FreeMod activated.
7.1. Possible mod choices are: Hidden, HardRock and Hidden+HardRock

why is Easy not allowed here? it has been used seriously in at least one tournament, and if an opportunity presents itself for it to be useful, no matter how rare it is, why not allow it?

Fair question, I would have problems figuring out a proper multiplier for it (given we use scorev2). Would it be a positive one? (it obviously makes things harder) or a negative one? (since it makes you less likely to fail.. ok weak argument)

I am not an EZ player or have much insight in this aspect, so if you have suggestions in how to design it, feel free to propose something!

(without a multiplier, it would sort of lose its tactical purpose, wouldn't it? dunno...)

This will be my first one I'll be able to watch!! And will there be banners available like for the mania tournament so we can support our country?

You already have the ability to revive without ez mod in multiplayer, i don't think you should be punished for it when using ez.

I think wiki should be updated with registered countries and their captain. It has been 7 days since registration and I have no clue if my country qualified in top 32 because there is no available info released or message saying we didn't qualify.

ETA on participating teams?

sent out the first lists (3 lol). Remaining lists should be sent out in the next days, depending on processing progress. Majority is wrapped now though.

Updated the wiki accordingly

Will you guys post the country statistics tables, sorted from the strongest to the weakest? I just want to see who qualified and who didn't
Enon
They will do it, and that's progressing now!

i've been working on some stats stuff lately based on information i could gather(so a lot of info is sadly missing), but once the teams are all out, i might whip up some stat stuff based on the teams that passed(since i don't have access to the info on teams that didn't get in)

Tournament management is running pretty slowly this year. Hopefully teams are going to be given a couple days at least to sort out their team.
