We have made a couple changes to the format for this season.

Firstly, we’re adding 2 new maps to the map pool, these maps will be decided by a community vote. This should make the map pool a lot more diverse and interesting and bring CoD2 in line with other popular shooters that have a 7 map-pool. Obviously this also gives each team an extra veto in a Bo3, which gives teams the opportunity to “perma-ban” one of the new maps for example in case they don't want to learn both new maps.

The veto system for a 7 map pool will be: ban, ban, pick, pick, ban, ban, decider.

Secondly, there will be no overtimes in the group-stage this time, so you can win, lose or draw your group games. This is to keep the tournament running smoothly and to give consistent breaks between games.

We are also hosting a longer running seasonal tournament (Season 3), this starts in February and you can check out the details here: https://eu.letsplay.live/forums/thread/p9021416/

Tomorrow we will start collecting the votes to decide which maps will be added to the map pool, if you're team wants to partake in the vote, then send me a pm or discord, or make sure you're signed up on the Toornament page.

Paid team votes will be worth twice as much as "interested" teams votes.

Regarding the map vote, we have collected votes from the following teams:

ephix, superkids, winrunnerz, newera, ARMIA, HAND, Team iNFINITE, KiNGz, OnlineGamers

If there are any other teams that want to vote, then just send me a pm on discord. Deadline for the vote will be 20 CET tonight.

There'll be 2 separate votes. You vote for 2 maps each time. After the 1st vote, the least popular map is removed, then we do the final vote, and the 2 most popular maps will be picked. (This is to ensure that people vote for the maps they truly want, instead of the situation where a team does not bother voting the map that they want, because they don't think that it'll pass anyway)
