I. BASIC INFORMATION ON GAME MODES
* The desired game mode has to be entered before 15 seconds mark, otherwise Normal Mode is selected.
* First available player may enter these commands, checking the player list from the top.
* Game modes are entered in a single line with no separation, like "-dmaridsc", or alternatively, they can be entered separated from each other, with a hyphen (-) in front of each mode, such as "-dm -ar -id -sc".

* The order doesn't matter. The game will handle it or (in case of incorrect combination) give you another chance.

II. PRIMARY GAME MODES
* Only one of these can be selected.
* Incompatible secondary game modes are listed as well.

Normal Mode -> Team Pick
This mode is selected when no other primary mode is during the first 15 seconds. Players may pick heroes from taverns belonging to their team.

Every player gets a random hero from any tavern.

-captainsmode / -cm -> Captains Mode
Blue and Pink are the team captains. You start by alternating 1/1/1 in the ban phase. Each captain removes up to 4 heroes. Running out of time does not result in a random hero ban. After that you enter the 1/2/2/ pick phase. Each captain picks the heroes his team will use. If at any time you run out of time, you start to use up your extra time. If you run out and you are in pick phase, you get a random hero. Creeps spawn 90 seconds after the pick draft phase is over. Right after the hero pick phase ends, the 5 heroes for your team are presented with a checkmark on them (RD style) allowing players on your team to pick which one they want to be. The captain that starts this process is random. If you want to give the starting to Sentinel, type -cm 1 or -cm 2 for Scourge after the game mode is entered.
