SK anniversary with four great teams, but with some weird rules and old maps, whats the deal?
Here is the deal. The SK anniversary tournament are well underway. Lots of people seem to get confused about the rules and the maps this tournament are using. Many of our users questioned us about it. So here we break it down for you, and there is no need to be confused for the matches tomorrow.
The Charges Only rules are old, and unknown to many of the viewers that joined the game with the newer rules such as MR12 and MR15.
Charges Only means that the rounds you need to win a match, are gathered as T. The rounds gathered as CT does not count in any way.
The teams have 20 minutes as T to gather as many rounds as possible. When the 20 minutes are over, it is time to prevent the opponent team from gathering more T rounds than them. The team with most T rounds when the 2x20 minutes are over, are the winner of the match.
So why does teams play hide and seek? Well when you are CT, you have to use the time wisely. You hide so the T's will have to hunt you down. As many of you might noticed, the CT's wait till the bomb is close to exploding, and then start defusing. Yet again it is about using the time wisely.
The Charges Only rules are old, very old. We have to go back to beta 3 and 5.2 to see anyone using these rules. Now when was these betas? Going back to 2001 where HLTV got introduced, teams were playing with the Charges Only rules.
With the old rules comes old maps. Today we witnessed SK and mouz playing de_aztec, PGS and NoA playing de_dust. Tomorrow there are another four matches on the menu. Which maps will be used are still unknown, but expect to see old maps once again. Maps that could possible could be played tomorrow; de_dust, de_aztec, de_cbble & de_prodigy. But we will have to wait till tomorrow to find out.
The next match from the SK Anniversary Tournament will start Sunday at 16.00 CET. The match will be between SK-Gaming and PGS. Which map they will choose this time, are still to be revealed.
