At the PGL Major, we’re going to see a new veto system for the best of one matches.
Now, instead of the map being randomly generated out of the two maps the teams pick the higher-seeded team will choose the map. The other team gets to then choose which side they start on.
This will give the higher-seeded team an advantage as they can pick their stronger map. However, the lower-seeded team will get one more map ban.
The process will go as follows:
- Team A bans 2 maps in a row
- Team B bans 3 maps in a row
- Team A chooses the map to be played from the two remaining maps
- Team B has side choice
In the playoffs, there will be no change to the veto system. Both teams will ban one map, then the teams will pick a map each, then team B will ban another map then team A will pick the decider map.
