In-games rules set

Short description:
If one of commanders dies, the player can switch via Alt+F2 to his ally and continue to help his ally. Alt+F2 won't allow do anything besides it (won't allow giving yourself Paragon or Mavor). So if one of teamates dies, both player will control all the units they have. For example, one can play land and other play air to divide responsibilities.

It essentially eliminates APM penalty for a commander's death. In order to compensate it, full share is changed to partial share. Partial share works as full share except it doesn't share military units, only buildings and engineers.

Nice to see my maps being used in the pool! Looking at the other maps though, I don't recognize 'Project Spariate'. Doesn't seem to exist in the vault either, and it's not one of mine (all my maps start with 'Project'). Typo?

How are you supposed to even get to stage 2 when it’s impossible for a bracket to end with an odd number of teams

@ftxcommando If number of teams is odd, the 3 highest rated teams will play initial round robin of 3 teams between them to make the number of teams odd. Let’s say 13 teams -> 3 in RR (2 games) + 10 BO1 -> 1+5=6 winners in stage 2.

If any RR ends with 2 teams having an equal score, they play a tie break.
