Map and faction choice
The contestant on the left side of the matchsheet will begin the elimination, then the contestant on the right side follows. Once there are three maps left the contestant on the left side picks a map, then the contestant on the right side does the same. The remaining map is the first map you play. Second map is the one the loser of the first map picked and the third map (if needed) is the last remaining map.
The contestant on the left side will play as Soviets for the first game then Germans in the next game. If the deciding game needs to be played then the player with the best VP score from both games gets faction choice in the deciding game.
