CS:GO currently has a total of 7 competitive MAPs.
In finals and big tournaments, the players banPick MAPs from each other and narrow down the list from 7 MAPs to 3 MAPs before the match starts.
This is an important phase of the game where the teams play each other to win by banning their opponent's best MAPs and forcing their opponents to pick their best MAPs.
This is one of the most interesting phases of CS:GO.
"Absolute" and "IGNIS" have fought many times before, and they know each other's strong and weak MAPs. The "Absolute" side also banned nuke.

Then "Absolute" picked Train, "Ignis" picked Overpass, and finally "Absolute" BANNED dust2.
The first match was decided as "Train", the second as "Overpass", and the third as "Vertigo".
