Do you think this would be a good idea?

My sister joined my dad and I in a Dominion game the other day, and I prompted her to play someone other than Jax. She picked Vladimir and I later saw on her computer that she was using a MobaFire guide. She explained to me that she couldn't buy Deathcap or Zhonya's on Dominion, so she just bought the other items in the purchase order.

I said, "Well that's because this is a Summoner's Rift guide, silly" and proceeded to search for a Vladimir Dominion guide. None. Okay... That's when I noticed that there was a screen that said something like, "Yielded no search results".

Whilst this is okay, instead I think something like this should show up:



So basically, instead of telling the browser that THERE IS NO GUIDE, we're telling the user, "There currently isn't a guide based upon your EXACT criteria, but why don't you have a look at some of these guides that matched SOME of your criteria?"

Thoughts?

Clearly we can't have nothing show up, so this idea works.
On a side note, it might be a good idea to reduce the amount of filters if people are being too specific. Prompting users to use less filters and be less exact would greatly help find closely related guides for their purposes.

It already prompts you to widen your search criteria (aka reduce filters) but I still think this would be a good idea. Will mention it to them.
