hi, I am trying to make my first maps... I tried to upload and play it with friends, but we don't get in teams. Does someone know what I miss?

Hello! I hope someone`s still around here helping people with Map Editor :D It was tons of fun to create your own maps, however 1 tiny detail are missing but dead important:

My problem is that teams doesn´t work. When creating game players can choose teams, but once launched, everyone starts as enemies. What am I missing? The wiki doesn´t help me, those instructions dont seem to be up to date.
