Attention players. If you want to stat shame me you should know my stats have been hidden now for two years. If you want to call me out just realize how silly you'll look using data two years old. 

I laugh till my toes tingle when one of you do it. It really is hilarious. Which of course is why statistics in the hands of the general public can lead to some very wrong conclusions. 

And I am not the only one. Others have their stats hidden. So please do keep trying to slam us in chat with your stat shamming.  Although I do believe that probably violates the EULA in one way or another.

I suppose the emblem should tell them something about your slight competency in high-tier German machines...

Average damage has no friends because it's not exceptional and has a tendency to hurt people.

Win rate is a loser, no matter what it calls itself.

Strange thing about the emblems.

I always use them to determine who to focus on first.  They are one item that are still available on the 'Tab' display.

I've also seen unicums revert back to the simple anchor to hide this as well.

Speaking of EULA, I got an email yesterday that they're gonna change it next month. 

I wonder if anyone that's "legal minded" will give us the "real skinny" on the changes?

Prolly something in there that allows them to give our info to the state if war ever breaks out. 

Da comrade. :Smile_teethhappy:

At a guess it is related to the recent legal ruling in the Netherlands & Belgium which is going to really hammer the companies that sell loot boxes that have 99% useless and near valueless garbage in them.

I'm pretty sure, whenever someone feels compelled to make a post celebrating their hidden stats and how they disprove statistics.....

....that my conclusions about both their in-game skill, intellect and character are pretty accurate.

Heh.  I stat shame myself. I am at 49% overall last time I looked. May have dropped after a horrid Fri night. Why o why do I play Friday nights! Yuk. In some ships I am much higher. Anyone don't like my numbers they can go suck bilge water. I try, I fight....... and doing better these days. I don't much care at all about a players numbers IF they try and they fight and strive to do better.  I don't make this my job. That's my philosophy. It's a cliche but hell it's just a video game. Have fun...but if you on my team pls give it your best and you got my respect even if you are not a unicorn. I sure have no room to diss anyone and I don't. Actually I don't see stat shaming as much of a problem in WoWs. I sure DID in WoTs. Ugly over there and I don't play it much anymore.

I don't see stat shaming much either. I use stats to know what to expect from my team and the enemy team. That is all.

If I have to look up your stats in a middle of a game that means one of two things:

 

1. I died early and I'm looking to vent on someone I think lead to my early demise, rather than accepting it's my fault.

2. I'm not paying attention to the game and just like to troll.

Looking at your W/R just tell me me how you're doing before. Not how good you would be in the future. I need the magic 8 ball for that.

They obviously still got under your skin because you felt the need to vent about it to uninvolved parties on a game forum. 

 

Maybe you should hide your chat too,

An average player can have a GREAT game.  You just don't know when it may happen. I go back and forth and that is one of my issues....just not consistent but I will and do have some pretty dang good performances these days.. The great players are consistent.  Hell I played at a 60% win rate for over 50 matches but past few days have been sucking.  That's me!

It was nice to join this game and get away from that constant stat shaming in that other game. Most all players here are pretty dang nice if you are trying. Of course none of use like the guy who sits in the back hoping others will win the game and only moves out after the game is already won.  Those types drive me crazy.  Carry on.:Smile_honoring:

Hiding stats and doing something stupid in game = having bad stats, people who fall under either category are going to receive a larger volume of ridicule. 

The only proven, successful way to reduce (will never fully get rid of) toxic criticism is to have considerably above avg stats and have them public.

And don't hate me if you disagree, I didn't make the rule on social norms. Humans are masterful at rationalization. They're always going to look for something that supports their argument.

If you are that much better now why do you still have them hidden? Heck your old stats while not very good were showing steady improvement.

I dont see the point in hiding stats. If you're ashamed of them, then do something about it. If you dont really care, why hide them in the first place? Stat shaming happens, but I hardly ever see it in chat.
