It seems there a lot of impopular maps it seems, but no matter, if my opponent doesn't want to play I am perfectly willing to draw. However, most just quit. Me being willing to play any map, I get a lot of (over)rating which would presumably cause me to lose more "honest" games and I am here to enjoy playing not to get free rating and not-enjoy losing honest games.
Out of 8 games played I got 4 (50%!) free wins, I don't think that is insignificant:
- https://replay.faforever.com/15987717 - 34/24 seconds game - +9 rating gained
- https://replay.faforever.com/16007918 - 34/21 seconds game - +11 rating gained
- https://replay.faforever.com/16007933 - 42/26 seconds game - +11 rating gained
- https://replay.faforever.com/16028787 - 40/24 seconds game - +10 rating gained
I have no beef with the players, although I do PM all of them suggesting to offer a draw first if they dislike the map. Also no beef with the councilor determining the map pool, I will complain in the appropriate thread if I have time and care enough at the start of the month.
But if we could disregard <1 minute games for rating that entirely alleviates my concern about getting overrated from this.
