- Follow the schedule below
Battle.net Ladder Season 3 map pool is used:
- 2000 Atmospheres LE
- Beckett Industries LE
- Blackburn LE
- Jagannatha LE
- Lightshade LE
- Oxide LE
- Romanticide LE
Before each match both players veto out two maps out of the map pool one by one in turns, leaving three maps to be played.
The player on the left side on the match page (top on bracket view) decides who starts the vetoes.
In short the map vetoes and picks are ABBA BAC. Players remove maps in ABBA order. Then the players take turns (BA) picking the map order from the maps that are left, starting from the first map that will be played. Player B picks the 1st map.
All matches are played on the Korean server unless players mutually agree otherwise. Read more from the rules.
The tournament starts as a single elimination bracket and changes into a double elimination bracket from round-of-16 onwards. This means that if you lose on Ro16 you may continue in the lower bracket. However, if there are 32 players or fewer total checked in, the whole tournament will be played in double elimination format. All matches are best-of-3.
The tournament will cease when top two players are decided. The grand final is not played.
