thay have been chosen for each stage of the finals.
no clan will be told what maps are going to be played till it comes up in the rotation on the night. the only people that will know is the 3 gameops, and maybe the refs that are refing the finals matches. This is to try and give every team the most level playing field possible, ie: skill on all maps, not just a few.
We are going to try and have 1 gameop and 1 ref to "ref" each match in every round. in some cases this may not work due to personal life such as work etc. but we will try.
Each ref will take screenshots and a demo that will be made publicly available after the match has taken place. The chances of having the demos hosted on GA isnt *too* high since the admins are more busy then normal (due to term going on hols), and there will be a fair few demos to go around.. which means alot of mirroring etc. So, for now they will just be mirrored on people personal accounts and links posted on the forums and in COGS.
Servers & IPs
The normal GC server will be used, and the dem server will be converted into a ladder server just for the first 2 rounds. So, no need to add IPs and ports.
