Premiership & Division 1
This season will introduce a new system similar to our last 6s season with picks and bans of a select set of maps each week during the regular season. Teams will have to proceed to a heavy fist fight if they cannot choose which teams are A and B.
- For Stopwatch maps teams will go as follow: Team A bans/Team B bans/Last map played
- For KOTH maps teams will go as follow: Team A bans – Team B bans / Team A picks – Team B picks
This subset of maps will be used during the season each week:
- Week 1: pl_upward_f10 / pl_vigil_rc9 / cp_steel_f12
- Week 2: koth_product_final / koth_warmtic_f10 / koth_proplant_v8 / koth_cascade
- Week 3: pl_upward_f10 / pl_vigil_rc9 / cp_steel_f12

Will be updated at a later date.
