The map picking for season 4 playoffs is as follows:

Winners bracket: The higher seeded team (as shown in the group stages - ordered by points, cap difference, etc) gets the choice of which team starts the ban process.
Losers bracket: The team which drops to the losers bracket last gets choice of which team starts the ban process, if two teams dropped to the losers bracket in the same round - then the highest seeded team (as above) gets the choice.

- Team A bans a map
- Team B bans a map
=> These first two map bans can't be picked later on by either team!
- Team A bans a map
- Team B bans a map
- Team A bans a map
- Team B bans a map
=> Remaining map is played as first map, Team A picks the side

Notes

All other maps are loser picks map, winner picks side.

In the event of a map draw, the previous team who picked the map does so again, other team picks side again.

In the event of a match draw, both teams will play the first map which resulted in a draw, the team which gets the first cap on the map will be the winner. Sides will be the same as when the map was played.

Grand final first best of 3 will be picked as above.

For the second best of 3, maps played in the first best of 3 are banned, leaving either 4 or 5 maps in the map pool. Admin will flip a coin at random to decide which team starts picking (the team doesn't get a choice of who starts the ban process, they are picked).

If there are only 4 maps left in the pool, this will result in Team A banning 2 maps (their last map ban decides the first map) and Team B only getting 1 ban (but gets the first side pick). If there are 5 maps left in the pool, both teams get 2 map bans, Team A gets the first ban and first side pick, Team B gets the last map ban.
