Agree with Pelo going difficult, but any sort of rank filter is morally wrong.
Morally wrong? I don't think so.
I agree with both of these ideas. Limit the new players' map choices more. Pelo War is a difficult map for a new person. No one should be playing a map like that right off the bat.
Rank Restrictions is also a good idea. I think it would benefit everyone. The lower ranks would be able to play themselves more and have a better experience because they wouldn't get completely creamed and the higher ranked players would hypothetically get a better game. I would rarely use the Rank Filter myself unless I was restricting it to 1400/1600 and above. Other than that, I would not use it often, but I think it's a very good idea. It makes everyone on a more equal playing field.
The one problem that I see with the Rank Restriction is that if new players end up only in games with other new players then they might get frustrated because of deadbeating/waiting for turns/etc. I wouldn't want brand new players to only be able to play with brand new players. But a little restriction is good I think.
