Not a good idea to use rate-limiting to deal with DDoS attacks - the programmatically-generated bad traffic ends up crowding out legitimate traffic.

All kinds of online games (many very popular in the RoK) make use of various UDP high ports; one never knows what applications users are running, so simply blocking ports isn't generally a good idea.

S/RTBH and/or an IDMS are a couple of different ways to mitigate DDoS attacks.

See this presentation for some BCPs:
