the main arguments with the you cant play people X levels below you is that some players have friends that low. for example i wouldnt mind having my ass handed to me a few times by some high ranked players.
i say we form a middle ground between the two sides, simply, players can play anybody, but they cant gain points from people if they are a certain number of ranks below them. the poll above is asking you to vote on how many ranks below you have to go to gain no points. say for example you chose 8, then if i were to play someone 8 ranks below me or more, then i cant gain points, but i can still play them. also this will only affects points, things like medals and % won and % of turns taken etc. just points.

i will be honest, i was too lazy to search for this before hand, and if it was already suggested i apologize.
