Those we're pretty standard, however, the main concern will be the way zBlock is played, there has been much debate over the new zBlock and it's bunnyhop commands. CEVO has always been against movement exploits, even more so then other leagues, it will be a huge determining factor on their ruling with the bunnyhop command. Perhaps the tournament is incentive to embrace the new ruleset they plan to release for it. What do you guys think about allowing bunnyhopping, or restricting it, although it is so very ingrained in the playstyle of many CS:S teams and players?
