Please learn to read ppl, the server has VOTING enabled. So you can play whatever mode you want. It's default mode is FFA now, because it makes sense to have FFA if there are only a few ppl in, but as soon it reaches 10 or more some1 can start a vote for TDM or even S&D if you feel like a 12v12 SD =)
Shouldn't be possible to even vote for S&D. S&D on public is cancer and there are already more S&D promod pub servers than there are tdm and ffa combined. Every gamemode is better than S&D on pub.
