For those of you who missed it, here is the clip from the 1v1 tournament announcement from today's 2v2 finals stream.

The rumors have it that there is also another balance patch on the way that will address the "no-tech" heavy tank call-in meta amongst other things :ph34r:

GCS3 WITHOUT Specops chosen in 99% of OKW games WOULD BE EPIC!
Besides that i really hope that Luvnest and Talisman come back for the tourney:hyper:

I hope they choose different maps.
I seen high level plays with the same few maps.
If this is not monetary tourney, using newer maps is fine

It will be 100% a monetary tourney, most likely thousands of dollars price pool as mentioned in the clip above

The usual 3-4 maps do feels stale in how 1v1 game develops sadly.

In 2v2 there can be more possibilities even in same maps.

I hope they use newer maps still

Crossroad will always be in the 1vs1 cup scene. Even when viewers say its boring to see it every single game. Its about fairness and balance for the players.
BUT
I could think, if all works fine, we will see maybe some other maps too in it. But that is not decided yet.

Another suggestion they do warm up games using ice and blizzard mud maps. Something to spice up viewership

I've had some thoughts about this.

1: I'd kinda like to see tournaments start with a group stage, round robin instead of pure knockout. The way I'd do it is this:

Best of 2. Each player plays Axis and Allies. Three commander ban against UKF, USF and OKW, Five commander ban against Ostheer and Soviet. If you win 2-0, you get 3 points in the group, 1-1 is 1 point. I'd suggest 4 man groups.

2: Ace game deciders should be a random map out of a large pool. Perhaps work with Tric to create this pool and have the worse excesses of some maps shaved down a little.

3: Commander bans should always be a thing. At minimum 1-2 bans, because it inherently encourages players to have a broader strategy pool than "OKW, Spec Ops, Mechanised, Puma, Luchs, Command Panther."

4: I know people hate ColdTech, but frankly I think having a side event or a smaller tournament on it to see if it develops another meta would be very interesting..
