I say this not only because I agree with Namor (that no map should be banned) but also because some programs or scripts check for game results which would end up being erroneous if, say, a Round 15 decision in favour of one team ended up being won by the other.
Best Idea yet, Cof... I am against any map being banned, and love the suggestion of starting those maps early if they become problematic (or mandatory that they are rd 1 games, or not at all).
I don't see any possible way you can control for all variables in "calling" a winner, with the exception of if one team publicly concedes.
