to know the specific rules of the over time.
We will have two different types of over times:
If both nations have picked the same game type
, the over time will be played in the same mode, as we have an uneven number of maps, the team with less round/flag average will start to ban maps from the map list, removing the played maps and also picking starting color.
If the overtime ends in a tie, repeat the banning process deleting the played maps from the map list, the first team to ban will be always the same.
If both nations have picked different game types
, the over time will be played using the remaining game type.
Teams will play a 1on1 knife round, the loser will start to ban maps from the map list and also will pick color of their team.
If the overtime ends in a tie, repeat the banning process deleting the played maps from the map list, the first team banning will be always the same.
As you can see in the maps and game types news, we don't have a single match played fully in the same game type, so the over time mode for this week will be Bomb & Defuse
