Although there is no exclusionary atmosphere on the site, there are exclusionary rules which people can fall foul of through no fault of their own. It has to be decided by a matter of opinion if some is farming or not. This option would allow anyone to play anyone but if they had a large number of NR or low ranked players join up they could stop the games and so a claim of farming, or knowing allow it and then it would be easy to find people who are choosing to play NRs and not just having them sign up. This wil help protect experienced players while not limiting them in any way.
Also NRs and other low ranked players will be able to play other people who my be more their level of experience on certain maps and settings.
The rank filter will only allow the option to play between set levels, I propose that if its outside of a set level then the game can be dropped, all game will be joinable by anyone. Also with the addition of a cut of of 1600, so if both player are above this the option is removed, it will serve to protect everyone.
