[SPOILER=Map Selection Process]
All Map Vetoes and Map Choices must be made prior to the start of a Match.
For all Matches, the higher seeded Player must choose to act as Player A or Player B.
For all Best of 3 Games Matches, Player A must veto one Map first, then Player B must veto two Maps, and then Player A must veto one more Map. The vetoed Maps will not be played in the Match. Player B must choose the Game 1 Map and then Player A must choose the Game 2 Map. The Game 3 Map will be the Map that hasn't been chosen or vetoed.
For all Best of 5 Games Matches, Player A must veto one Map first and then Player B must veto one Map. The vetoed Maps won't be played in the Match. Next, the Players must alternate choosing each Game's Map, starting with Player A choosing the Game 1 Map. The Game 5 Map will be the Map that hasn't been vetoed or chosen for Games 1-4.
No Map may be played more than once in a Match, except in the case of a stalemate, where the map is to be re-played.[/SPOILER]
