You can choose whether players are supposed to play individually or as teams. Choose "No Teams" if you want all players to play individually. Choose "Free Teams" to decide on the composition of your teams yourselves and to choose the number of teams playing in the game. Choose "Scenario Teams" for teams with a preset historic situation depending on the chosen map. Betrayal among team members is not possible, because they cannot attack each other. Members of the same team always have at least right of way.

Here you can decide how the gold round should end. In the standard mode, a game ends when the first player has reached 50% of all available points in the game, i.e. 1,000 points. "Domination" means, the game ends when the first player has reached 75% of all available points, i.e. 1,500 points. The "Supremacy" mode only ends if one player conquers the complete map. That way he/she will earn 100% of all available points, i.e. 2,000 points.
