could you have made mapvoting more complicated? :D
it's 6 maps and a bo3, so one team is favoured in mapvoting..

Complicated? This is the most used way of picking maps, just reversed. Normally it would be first map picked by team A, second map by team B, then third map decided by veto. This would result in an unfair advantage for team A, as they get to play their map first, but since the veto map is played first it will even out.

If you have a better suggestion, feel free to say so and we will consider it for the next cup.
I think Nils objection refers to the number of maps in the map pool and not the system of veto. With a even number of maps in the map pool (6) team A gets to ban 2 maps and team B 1 map, thus an unfair advantage is given to team A.

Usually in bo3 tournaments, the map pool consists of an odd number of maps, so that the two opponents ban an equal number of maps.

Ye, it was a mistake in the map pool. WatchYourBack has now been added.
