PGL Major Krakow to bring map selection changes
Posted: Jul 11, 2017 Written by: do_0h

The guys behind the Romania Professional Gamers League have announced changes to their map veto in Counter-Strike:Global Offensive.


The guys want to make it more fair for the Swiss format as it seems that the Bo1 format is random.


Thus the organizers have decided to change the map veto process in that the higher seeded team will chose the map to be played from the maps that remain while the lower seeded team will chose the starting side.


This is pretty much different from how things worked out so far as the map was chosen randomly out of the remaining ones.


The lower seeded team will therefore will ban three maps in a row after the higher seeded team will ban two in a row.


Last the higher seeded picks the map from the remaining ones while the other team picks as mentioned above the starting side.


Before this change each team took turns banning maps, higher seeded banned three lower seeded banned two and picked side at the start.


It remains to see if this will improve the randomness of the Swiss format in the next major at Poland PGL Major Krakow 2017.
