Battle for Berlin

highlight
As we all know, the last days of the war were the bloodiest... The Russians closed in with Berlin in their sights. All that stond in their way was the battered remnants of the Wehrmacht. These men, however, would not go down without a fight. Now not for the Reich, but for their own lives.

Map Vetoes and Faction Selection




Before picking the factions, the players will veto maps from the map pool. The top team in the bracket vetoes first and then the bottom team does the same. The first two games will be on the remaining map in the pool after the vetos. If there is a third game, the veto process is repeated.

After vetoing maps, the top bracket team will choose their faction first. Next game, the factions will be switched around. For the third, whoever has the Victory Point lead, from the two previous games, chooses first.


Map Pool




The order of the maps here is also how the maps will be seeded in the battleplanner.
  • Elst Outskirts

  • Rails and Metal
