People have been lamenting the draw-death of chess for ages, with various suggestions on how to get past that. SALC-armageddon comes from this website by a computer chess fan who's been playing several NN engines against other NN engines. Note the special rule:
SALC Armageddon means: White is allowed to castle short, only and Black is allowed to castle long, only (=SALC (Short And Long Castling)). And all draws are counted as a win for Black (=Armageddon), because these castling-rights are a advantage for White. So, there are no draws anymore. And no draw-death of computerchess. Read more and download more Armageddon stuff in the "Armageddon openings"- section of my website.
Amazingly, this seems to lead to 50-50 games where neither side has an advantage:
Games : 3000 (finished) White Wins : 1492 (49.7 %) Black Wins : 1508 (50.3 %) Draws : 0 (0.0 %) Unfinished : 0 White Score : 49.7 % Black Score : 50.3 %
Has this tiebreak rule been seriously discussed and/or tried in human play? If it really is 50-50 for both sides, it could even take over as the main format in classical tournaments.
