Allow players to hide their faction during match setup
This is a small idea that suddenly came to me. You see, in a game with distinct designs, take ZH for example, evident factional food-chain exists, knowing the enemy's standing is a great intel edge for choosing your own faction, planning the play and building the proper units, saving the expense of recon methods.
Even with fewer factions like RA3, due to the balance issues certain faction counters one other from patch to patch, smart people did use this to go further in the ladder. Sure one can elude that by selecting "random", but if he wants to win with equal efficiency he gotta master every faction.
I figure a little checkbox to show/hide the player choice could come in handy.
Fairer game with the pre-read advantage erased.
I dunno, annoys the opponent?
