DokiDokiI don't think not being good at a gamemode is an excuse they'd use. Teams in whatever game will always specialise in certain maps, it just happens a lot of the Korean teams are good at CP.
Yes exactly, i'm more referring how different it would be with a more wide pick/ban system where you actually had a choice on picking mode you have a better chance on winning. That i believe is the accepted norm now, if you loose, You get to pick a map(in other games at least), you are strong on.
In the current APEX format, you can't really do that as you're forced to play a specific game mode, and as it came to be with these teams and the format sequence. nV had to win numbani to have a chance to potentially win again on 4th map.
This is highly speculative of course, and there are things they could've have done in this matches i'm sure to win regardless of these assumptions.
