Game modes

If you are the host of a game you have 15 seconds (up until you can choose heroes) at the beginning of the game to choose your first game mode. Note that times for second mode and required orders may vary.

Simply enter in the command (say it like your talking to people in the game) and the game will be set to that mode.
