I would not want to enter my favorite server only to notice the settings have been changed by some random guy only when the game starts, or maybe only later (such as when basic crates only is turned on). And there certainly is a huge potential for abuse of such a feature.
Yeah, I can see that happening. I was actually thinking of this coinciding with the server details being displayed, not prior. Without being able to see the details, you would never know what you are getting into.
And I hadn't thought of the ladder bit, consistency can be an issue to ranking games depending on how and what data is collected.
I just wanted to throw the idea into the mix. Not sure the flavor is so good though.
