Is having the specifications for map rotations in the % runs necessary? For example many competitive runs use Blackheart bay with isn't allowed in the rules currently, but was when the Runs were completed. This makes it a bit confusing since it's not obvious whether those maps are legal or not. If certain maps are banned for whatever reason that seems reasonable, but currently having the legal maps based on seasonal rotation seems over-complicated and unnecessary.

Also, as a bit of a sidenote, are PTR runs available? It's not specified in the rules, and there's some heroes I can't feasibly get soon that I'd like to try to run, and so the PTR is the only resource available really. Specifically Blaze and Fenix.

Yeah the rules were not well written or very clear, the part about the maps just intends to say that it has to be a proper map that you could play in QM, or ranked. As in not a brawl map.

So in the current custom games screen you can't pick Lost Cavern or Mineral Madness 😛

Hanamura is a bit interesting since it is supposed to be being completely reworked at the moment, but it isn't a very quick map so I don't think people will pick it.

As for the PTR, it should be fine. But be aware that there could be changes to heroes between the PTR and official patch release. So if you set a time with Fenix, it is quite possible he will be slightly tuned before official release, and your time will become legacy pretty fast 😛

Ah OK, thank you. That's much more clear. Thank you! Yeah Ill try to keep an eye out for patch notes since I'd prefer a run count, but if I complete the run on the PTR after he's released it'll essentially be the same version.
