Hai guys,

since we have a slight break between tourneys, I was thinking about hosting a small fun tourney. ( ~8 players probs, excluding myself)

But whats the fun part? The focus on this tourney is using new/forgotten maps in the game, which got included in DE Dlcs but never got into the ranked mappool because they were too unique or non competetive.

Those maps can be competetive or lil trolly ones

E.g: competetive one: Tripolitania (old ep map) / Northwest Territory (old twc map)
Image Image

Forgotten map: Yucatán / Lake Victoria
Image Image

Lil trolly map: Black forrest / Yamal / Congo Basin
Image Image Image

Those maps are just examples, but have high chances to be in the final mappool

With this post i wanna see, if the community is interested in such a format, personally i think its a good variety till the next main Esoc tourney begins. Aside from that, there are many maps which hasnt been noticed yet.

I'd put myself 50€ in the pot to make things more juicy, any help welcomed :flowers:

Let me know what you think about that ^_^

Troll maps no, maps with weird ass layout I could watch. Basically Yamal yes, Black forest and Congo Basin no. Gonna be a lamefest anyway.

I think we should establish 4 annual majors here at ESOC, opened for everyone, even if there are no prizes, or if the prize is low!!
please read my message and help me make this a reality.

I'd watch or possibly play if the maps are trolly but not to a point where it makes for super passive games, or always forces a mirror for example. Like yea I'm not gonna watch people chop wood or sit behind a choke with 4 layers of walls. Or just everyone going port mirror on ceylon everygame and just training fishing boats. But there should be a decent in between to be found

tbh I think Dune - The Eye is a great trolly map, since there are weird chokes and weird resource layouts (all the coin is in the middle of the map) but you can't build walls at all.

free tibet into the map pool
If I were a petal
And plucked, or moth, plucked
From flowers or pollen froth
To wither on a young child’s
Display. Fetch
Me a ribbon, they, all dead
Things scream.
