No, special game modes shouldn't be included with the basic documentation. It should especially not single out or give precedence to a singular special game mode, and moreover some big, elaborate, multi-page guide. (Not to mention it's 1.5 MB.)

Any documentation included with the game should deal only with the basics. A basic overview of the fundamental concept, game elements, basic instructions and controls, and key menu items. Then it can direct to the wiki or whatever. Why don't you just upload this to the wiki?

This should definitely be included with the basic documentation. If there were guides like this for slayer(any game type where you just go about and kill people), Sumo and CTF, that would be great (hope that doesn't sound like I am expecting others to write these guides).

On the contrary! More game modes should be named after Heavy Metal bands.

Sumo -> Iron Maiden
Umm, drawing a blank on the others.

If "Slayer" is some heavy metal band (which it probably is) that is not what I intended to be referenced... The Slayer game mode in Halo is the same concept, just kill people, which is why I used that term.
