Ban Pick Process

Map order, side selection, and available operator skills will be determined during the ban pick process. During the Group Stage and Playoffs, both teams will do a coin toss, the winner of the coin toss has the right to choose to be team A or team B.

Moreover, maps that have been banned or picked up cannot be re-elected (Global Ban/Pick Map). The Ban/Pick Map platform will be informed by the Committee.

  • Team A bans one map from the Map Pool.
  • Team B bans one map from the Map Pool.

Game 2: Search and Destroy

  • Team B selects the Search and Destroy map.

If the team representative is not present when the Ban/Pick is held, then the committee has the right to choose a random map to be banned or picked.

And in the case of Operator Skills, Once a team has completed the pick map ban process, each team will ban one Operator Skill for all games. Team B will ban operator skills first. Once the Operator Skill has been banned, it cannot be used by both teams during the match. If there is a team that uses the Operator Skill that has been banned, then that team will incur a LOSS in that mode, and points will be awarded to the opposing team.
