Bug Description

(Yes, I know this is far too late for build17)

A while back, we got some metadata to filter the map selection. Which is great, though the UI for selection probably needs some polish. (That's a separate issue though)

However, I find the "X player teams" check boxes slightly confusing, especially when I tried to translate them. Do they signal the number of teams, or the number of players which can be in each team? Is it maps made for 3 teams, or maps for teams with 3 players?

Looking at the elemental files the actual tag is "Xteams" which suggest it represents the number of teams. If this is correct, I would suggest changing it to "For X teams" or something as player seems a bit redundant.

I understand it that X player teams stands for X players in every team. That means that the number of players has to be a multiple of that number. For a 3 player team, 6 players on a balanced maps are needed. The play then 3vs3. It is a kind of continuation of the 1vs1 mode (where a "team" consists of only one player).

I think the names could be clarified to "teams of X", then it would be clear.
