Translatable string "Sides %s and %d are tied." has hardcoded conjunct list #4274

Low-priority, as having a match end in a 3-way tie sounds a rare occurrence; the reason for logging the issue is mainly that having the heterogeneous %s and %d looked wrong.

side_comparison = side_comparison .. string.format( "\n" .. tostring( _ "Sides %s and %d are tied."), table.concat(winning_sides, ", "), last_winning_side)

If sides 1 and 2 tie, then this will have "1" in the %s and 2 in the %d.
If sides 1, 2 and 3 tie, then this will have "1, 2" in the %s and 3 in the %d.

So the translation doesn't know how many sides there are, nor can it do a non-English-style format_conjunct_list.
