Quick Rules

Mapveto: The maps will be banned through the matchsheet with the automatic mapveto system. The system will decide the team that starts with the first map veto. 2 Maps will be banned alternately and then maps will be picked alternately in the order in which these maps will be played (1 map in a BO1, 3 maps in a BO3). The opponent team (which did the second map veto) will start with the First Ban in Hero Draft.
