Want to ban XVM and all stats on screen. The targeting is real, and cheating. I don't turn on any of that crap in the game.

The surprise booty pounding is much more satisfying if they can't see it coming.

I'm smart enough to glance at clan tags and know if they're good or not.

Who cares.

 

If somebody is going to stat shame you are they really the kind of person you care about the opinion of anyways? F them.

I just block those dudes/dudettes/transdudes/transdudettes/nogenders who bother me about my stats.  Unless I'm drinking wine...then I'll toy with their emotions for a bit.

Because there are people who do not care about stats. Whether casual players or (surprise surprise) those that are humble. But in the end, most people are tired of those who want to insult you for your stats cause they do not equal up to their standards. Stats are like having a big "package." It's nice having it but once you start waving it in my face then we have problems.

I'm all for blocking stats in battle. XVM distorts gameplay by providing far too much info that shouldn't be available on the fly, giving unfair advantages to those who use it over those who choose not to.

 

How is it an "unfair" advantage when both parties, as you admit, CHOSE which way they want to play??

I want stats hidden DURING GAMEPLAY because I'm tired of hearing whiners complain about percentages at the start of each game. If I wanted that info I'd have XVM installed already myself. It is HIGHLY annoying and unproductive.

 

So everyone else should lose the ability because you're too lazy to turn off chat??

So how are you going to suffer through the thousand other things that people btch about at the start of the battle?? You do realize that without XVM the whiners will just find something else to whine about right??

Yep, that's the way things work. They will move on though and so will I. Maybe they can complain about how many badges each teams players have?

The main reason would be to avoid stat shaming and various forms of trolling.

 

For example: there are times when someone has poor stats posts a decent idea or comment; however, because the poster has poor stats, the person's comment is dismissed and s/he is personally trashed. As if poor stats and cogent opinions are mutually exclusive, and vice versa.

 

In a separate current post, a poster suggested that badges earned could made be public but stats not be.

 

I can see listing the number of battles, and perhaps badges, medals, moe, and other awards earned. But make stats private but give the player the option to post them if s/he wishes.

:teethhappy: its just in game stats (during the battle) that they want blocked... they don't care about forums.

Well, more than one player has suggested they would like to have their stats hidden to avoid xvm focus by arty during battle.  Others have suggested that they'd like to have their ideas on the forums considered in the basis of the idea's merits rather than on their stats.  I can understand both positions. *shrug*

The OP didn't specify from where stats should be hidden that but I did see that others were game specific. Thanks for clarifying. I still feel that hiding stats would eliminate stat shaming, which would reduce trolling and toxicity, which would make for a more pleasant game. 

 

Pollyanna and I are now going back to Utopia. :)

Opinion ... all these super good players LOVE to post their stats in the forum as part of their signature ... super good playesr WANT everyone to know they are unicoms, or near-unicoms ... super good player want everyone to know they are in ELITE clans with SUPER high ratings .... so many players re-roll to SHOW OFF their inflated stats ... so many players SEAL CLUB to inflate their stats ... 

 

... BUT ...

 

these same players DON'T want their stats to be shown DURING BATTLES!

 

Because they don't want people like you focusing them.

 

XVM is a toxic cyst on the game. Always has been, always will be until it's gone or we get serverside anonymity.

Maybe, but I am no expert but that might be stepping on someone else's toes and could be a legal issue? Not sure but I understand what you mean.

 

No one has a right to that info. No legal issue. It is info provided BY wargaming AT COST to wargaming(they had to develop the API), that is graciously open to use by any third party without prior agreement.

If they're simply a "representation of one's tanks adventure" then why do we need them plastered on players in battle?

Not only does WG already provide in games stats for everything from your winrate to what your armor efficiency rating is, but they provide it with simple 2 click access in game. Why do you want all this info plastered on team panels in battle. Not a single other game does this. There isn't even an XVM equivalent for WoWS. Yet sites still have access and provide a generated Warships Today Rating(WTR), and other types of PR. None of these are available IN BATTLE.

Sneaky, but I can still look yours up. So... ? :hiding:

 

No. You can't. Because the ideal way would be to show a player on a team as "Anonymous######" and their real IGN only be provided in the end battle sheets AFTER the battle is over.

You can't look that up. You can't even alt-tab out of the game and look up the user until after the battle is already over.
