Map Pool and Order

Since my last article, there have been some changes to the season's structure in the Invite division. This season, Invite will have 10 teams, and to keep with the Round Robin structure, two extra regular season weeks have been added. In addition to this, playoffs for Invite will be held over two weekends, so that the season length is not extended.

Instead of having the option to play the older version of Cascade instead of Lakeside, Old Cascade is their Week 8 map. For each match in Week 9, the two teams facing one another will chose to play one map again from the pool of eight maps by taking turns banning until one map remains.

See the the updated Map Pool and Order below:

Week 1: pl_vigil_rc10
Week 2: koth_product_final
Week 3: pl_swiftwater_final1
Week 4: koth_ashville_final1
Week 5: pl_upward_f12
Week 6: koth_lakeside_r2
Week 7: cp_steel
Week 8 (Invite Only): koth_cascade_rc1a
Week 9 (Invite Only): Ban/Ban down to 1 Map from the 8 Invite Maps
