I'm sure we have all been in the situation where we join a match and either
A. Someone decides to kill you on the first turn for literally no reason

B. We've taken over from an AI and they have some how managed to get themselves onto -30 gold and all your neighbours just so happened to declare war on the same turn

both have serious ranking damages and are seriously frustrating as they take away around 3 games of hard work because people and AI are rude

Now I understand that A is a "strategy" and that B is the risk you have to take with joining an already started game and I'm butt hurt because in the last 2 days this has happened 3 times , but from logistical view, it has likely turned people off the game, meaning less customers and negative feedback wave.

So what I propose is that it is compulsory for a ranked match to have a ceasefire setting turned on or that there is some 3 turn join ranking protection or an impossible situation saver which is basically a hotline which could help people who are victims of ganging from both AI, people who got lied to and then invaded, either of the two previous mentioned or other really unlucky people and they either have there ranking hit lessened or nulled depending on the nature of the situation

Also is there a way us normal people to have a custom map setup on an official map approved for a rank game?

During game setup, when you select the "Advanced Options" checkbox, you get the option to e.g. start the game with a 5-turn ceasefire. All nations are at a 5-turn ceasefire when the game begins!

Is that what you are looking for?

It was more about having that as a compulsory rule for a ranked match or a way to lessen the ranking blow that happens for examples like I gave or other unfair events eg. ganging, taking over from useless AI, 12 AIs attacking you on the same turn (true story...)
