I should have made this thread since a long time already (but I haven't haha). So let's begin with two major informations:
1) Introducing MAP VETO!
Newer tournaments from SOL that will feature a complete map pool will give the possibility to the players (and teams) to veto the maps that they don't want. How does it work?
during the swiss stage (BO1), the maps will be given by random.org (each map will have it's own number)
during the playoffs (BO3), each player will be given the possibility to veto 3 maps off the map pool, the two remaining maps will be played. In case of 1 - 1, one map will be randomly choosen by random.org.
during the grand final (BO5), each player will be given the possibility to veto 2 maps off the map pool, in case of 2 - 2, the last map will be choosen by random.org.
Important: a map cannot be played more than once in the same match.
all of that being clarified, let's go straight to the second major information:
2) Unveiling the AllStars 2018 official map pool!
- Little Trouble
- The Lost Tomb
- Sun Palace
- Docking Bay
- Pro Fortress
- Figona Clan Map
That does 4 native maps, 3 community maps and one halfway being the Pro Fortress as it features only minor modification. The map pack will be provided with the official registration thread which will be opened once I will be ready.
