Make sure you turn up for your games 5 minutes early! If you are 15 minutes late for any round you will automatically lose your first map. If you are 30 minutes late for your match you will lose 2-0. The first map of each match is chosen on the tournament system (check the brackets for the current map) then the loser picks maps from there onwards, but no map can be repeated.
We have decided to use the WCS maps which were used for the UK finals this year:
WCS Antiga Shipyard
WCS Shakuras Plateu
WCS Tal’Darim Altar
WCS Cloud Kingdom LE
WCS Entombed Valley
Just search for “WCS” when loading a map and you will find these no problem.
