Also the 7* map is actually one of the easier maps in the pool

True though

But the rest feels inhuman to be put on a GS :\

this is actually good to see, although low seeds team are probably going to cry over the maps

we can already see promising matchs on -already- difficult maps, and they're going to be even harder as the tournament progress
can't wait to see Japan playing 9* on match

I know where you were trying to go with the map pool and all but this is straight up UNFAIR to lower and middle seeds.

Last year, the maps for GS were easy yes but compared to this year, you can't expect any of the lower seed and most of the middle seed to get close to passing most of these maps. The maps last year gave everyone a fighting chance at least, but this is just cruel to those who wanted to play and enjoy it even if they'll get knocked out because they might as well bash on their keyboard because it'd be the same as attempting to play the difficult patterns in these technical maps.

what happens if all players fail tiebreaker and tie with a 0-0 score? cause it will probably happen if there's a TB between mid and low seed in group stage.

do they play again with NF???

Still Haven't idea why the map selector pick diff around *6 - *7 in GS
and yeah I'd like to see the Galaxy Collapse as the Mappol in next week lol if the Mappol has no changed

I agree that TWC map pool should be way harder than before, but not in this scale lol. In Group Stage we already have maps of 6 to 7 star difficulty, so most of the mid and low seeds would have a hard time handling them and could be simply thrown out. :o

TWC 2017 GS = TWC 2016 Semifinals

Yeah imo a good difficulty increase from one year to the next is move all mappoold up one week and make a harder mappool for grand finals (same difficulty not same maps) So groups stage mappool this year would be equivalent to Ro16 mappool last year, Ro16 would be equivalent to last year's quarterfinals ect. But as it is currently the group stage is more like semi-finals from last year. At this rate we could expect to see grand finals difficulty in quarterfinals? I don't even want to know what insanity would be in grand finals mappool with that progression, technical 11 star maps?

yo just wanna clarify something about the new freemod rules

it says that at least 1 player from each team needs to have mods on, so does that mean if the map has "HD/HDHR" written behind a map (in this case being Der Wald), only one player from the team needs either HD or HDHR on and the other two can play with nomods?
Sayaka-
