In an attempt to keep all the threads somewhat organised, we've created this for any general tournament discussion.
Your concern is completely valid and I've addressed this in the feedback thread, so allow me to quote myself.While I really like the concept of a more open Arabia, some maps where really unfair, even more if we consider that there are no re. Lyx map in the 3rd game was almost as starting with only one rhino, or no berries. Completely unfair
The maps we saw were absolutely horrible and completely unacceptable. The only reason they were played is that the players decided to not bring any attention to it, and the player with the awful generation won in the end.
I suspect it's due to the Definitive Edition workshop not correctly updating the map mod, leaving the players with a version of the map that had these issues a while back. This was quickly patched, but failed to be delivered to the players.
Defining when the map is actually bugged is quite easy and not arbitrary at all. Once you know how the map is supposed to generate, it's quite easy to determine if something went wrong or not.
I hold myself to a high standard when it comes to these things, so it's incredibly embarrassing what happened in front of this many viewers, but I can pretty confidently say that it shouldn't be as big of an issue going forward. It's also important to note that if this were to happen in a live game, these games would undoubtedly be admin restarts.
I apologise for what happened, but at least we had some incredible performances from some outstanding players.
