Anything before top 3 is a predetermined maplist.
During top 3:
At the beginning of the set, the Captain of each team will come to me in front of the stage.
There will be a pool of 3 maps for each ranked mode (Tower Control, Splat Zones, Clam Blitz, Rainmaker). Each team will strike (ban) one map in the following order:
SZ – higher seed strikes first, lower seed second
TC – lower seed strikes first, higher seed second
CB – higher seed strikes first, lower seed second
RM – lower seed strikes first, higher seed second
This will leave one map remaining for each mode. This will be the counterpick pool.
Game 1 will be on a predetermined Splat Zones map.
Game 2 onwards will be counterpicks from the struck pool.
Once a Map/Mode has been played, it will be removed from the pool. No repeats.
