Captains Mode- How To

Civ picks and bans will be made using This Page.

1. Set your Captains Mode website username. Click on the name at the top right of the page and set your username here.

2. Click HOST and share the link to the draft with your opponent.

3. Start the drafting process, which is explained below.

Each player will take it in turn to pick and ban civilizations from the pool. The first ban from each player is a Global Ban, this means that once banned neither player can pick that civilization.

The next two bans each are done in secret, you are banning civilizations so that your opponent can not pick them; but you will still be able to pick these civilizations unless your opponent also bans them for you.

The banned civilizations are revealed to both players. Each player will then select their civilization from the remaining civilizations left in the pool. This is also done in secret until both players have picked.

Restarts

Players are entitled to 1 restart for each event (qualifier and main event), called before 4 minutes (4:00) in game time, unless there is a bugged map in which case a restart will not be used up.

Bugged maps are where any food resources are 100% blocked or where there are less than 3 faces of your main gold or stone available to mine. Must be called after 4 minutes game time or have a screenshot for the admins. If you are unsure please pause and ask.
