Map veto please, random system is kinda silly as you can't practice the maps you want. The main reason we didn't play p2p this season as preparation for LAN. Also having a lowerbracket would be nice I guess! It's an online tournament so it doesn't matter (time/PC wise etc)
Lower bracket means the play-offs will take longer to finish as you only need to play 1 play-off match per week.
As for map veto, the reason it was not implemented was that the best team would have to be good on all maps. With veto you can always remove your worst map.
So not a fan of the veto
Then make it ''pick pick remove remove'' instead? Even though ''remove remove pick pick'' is better because you get 3 maps that both teams are decent on. Surely it's more interesting to play a match that goes 13-11, 11-13, 13-11 than a match that goes 13-4, 4-13, 13-11?
It doesn't matter if playoffs last longer though, it's not like we are at a LAN where we need to finish all matches in a few days. As long as we just start the next season as soon as the playoffs start, then everyone has something to play for. We need to decrease the downtime for teams who didnt qualify or got knocked out in the playoffs early on.
