From the KotS discord:

As you all may have noticed, teams were able to cast a vote for a ship to be globally banned from the tournament when signed up.
We've reached enough votes to be able to call a "winner".

To the surprise of absolutely no one and currently leading with more than 100 votes compared to the second place, the globally banned ship will be:

Spoiler

Starting on day 1, the ship will be banned for all regions.

The only ship I hope is outright banned is the FDR, any other ship can be dealt with by restricting to one since that worked out pretty well for T9 CB after that tier's OP ships, Mush and GA got banned.

I thought the first ships that were banned from KotS were ALL aircraft carriers? Or do you mean first besides those?

No CVs in KOTS (for now).

Global bans are different from match bans.  Global bans are always in effect, and there will probably be more.  There are usually global bans on low-availability ships. Austin may qualify under that rule yet received a surprising number of votes.

Match bans are (or have been) selected by the teams before a match.  Two ships each.  Teams seem to correlate them to enemy preferences and the upcoming map. (There are map bans too.)

I haven't read the new rules yet but this is how it worked in the past.  The vote for a globally banned ship is new.

Oh this is interesting! 

Dear players!

Considering that there will be significant changes made to the commander skill system in patch 10.4, which is between the regional tournaments and the international tournament, the decision was made to use a separate server to accommodate for this change.

Internationals will not be played on patch 10.4, but on 10.3 on a different server.

 

That should eliminate any loading issues, too.

So much for diversity.

BAN BAN BAN BAN BAN BAN. yeehaw...

I am not surprised. Poor petro. All dressed up and no playce to stick it in the game.

 

What players need as I once did is courage to stand up to a radar warship in game. So it does not matter if it had radar or not. Once it burned off you knew you had a cool down time to go do what you need to do.

the radar is the least of the problems of petro... otherwise moskva would have been more reviled then petro, no petro is just stupidly tanky and punishing for every mistake...

Spoken like someone who has clearly never watched, played, or understood either KOTS or Petro.

They got unbanned by using a brick of cash to remove the admin and take over kots.

WoWs doesn't want then in either.  It would destroy their new baby.  Never say never, but things will have to evolve a more before you see a CV in KotS.

I've come to accept carriers, the game is heading in 10 directions at once and not one of them is good.

The Petro ban is to increase diversity. It's not fun to watch if most teams spam the same meta ship. 

If you actually watched the last KotS, Petro was heavily used due to her absurd durability, allowing her to hold strategic positions for a very long time. Very annoying to fight against and was boring from a spectator's perspective. Radar was a minor problem in comparison.

And please note, the ban is a COMPETITORS' VERDICT.  Yes, we spectators may think that 13 Petrotankers in a battle is absurd.  The clear-eyed contestants think so too.

The first KOTS with new management and the first ruling of its new course for the tourny...

So far. I reserve comment till the new management product is evaluated fully by the spectators/consumers.

We're watching...

Oh yeah, still with the Dead Eye.  We will get to see it in its legitimate glory i.e. not an excuse for back camping.

I'm thinking that Petro getting banned could be no big deal.

Petro doing what Petro does best is a lot less durable when you can place at least a couple shells out of every salvo in behind the front turrets.

Makes sense to me, Petro is OP and overly selected.
