The maps have been updated, the creators coached by Freakling and we've ended up with some amazing maps ready to be played by you all in some test tournaments. It's very possible if they all play well that we might see every single map in the next season of STPL so let's hope we see some good games! Every map to be showcased will be new for the STPL and new for tournaments in general. I think there's been some showmatches on Minerals maps including this one, but this is the first time it'll be used in a tournament setting!
Here is how Blindside looked in the beginning.
and here how it looks after an amazing amount of work by Minerals to fix any issues!
The Map Test Tournament
The tournament will be double elimination Bo1 up until the finals which will be one match of Bo3. All games in the tournament will be played on Blindside (link will appear below) and the tournament is open for everyone who is currently in an STPL team, either current teams or teams from previous seasons.
There will be a $10 prizepool for the winner of each tournament.
The tournament will start at 15:00CEST on the 26th of September and checkin will begin at 14:30CEST.
