    it probably seems really small or dumb, but i think an option to pick a random map alongside being able to pick any map, it would just work the same way as if nobody picked a map

    it would make variety more possible and help new players discover new maps alongside giving the maps that are rarely played a chance to be played more. I personally think it would be a great idea, although there's a chance it might get picked so much that map selection never happens unless the server is on low player count. Thoughts?

    Something similar to this was in the pipeline but I hadn't actually considered it as an actual option on the menu. A reasonable suggestion!

    So what could be interesting is like a Random Map button at the top which shows the votes like other maps, and if that wins you get a random map out of the pool. Could be further incentivised with say increased cube gains or the like if it wins, but may not even be needed. I like the idea though!
