Mappools

At the beginning of each week, look here for the map pool for the specific round. Matches will be played on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays so map pools will be released on either Monday or Tuesday. This year we will include the additions of mods!! Yaaaaaay! Just like the owc! there will be set maps for certain mods for each map pool.

  1. Each team can only pick 1 mod specific map from each mod pool per match.
  2. Picking from the non-mod pool is unlimited.
  3. You may combine Hidden mod with DoubleTime or HardRock maps but all players need to agree with this first! Referee has the power to deny this if it is not respected.
  4. This is how the map pool would look like:
    • NoMod: 6 maps
    • Hidden: 2 maps
    • HardRock: 2 maps
    • DoubleTime: 2 maps
    • Tiebreaker: 1 (NoMod), in case of a tie
