Why do people hide their stats? Either they rock, so you have bragging rights, or they suck, in which case you can do like I do and sponge off the expertise in these forums. False pride? Embarrassment? Fack, get over yourself people. I may be new, but I can say absolutely that when people in these forums see that you suck, and they can see why you suck, they are very quick to offer advice to make you not suck.

I was recently in a game with a very good CV player. I think he hid his stats so the other players wouldn't know just how good he was.

People hide their stats because they are sick of trolls.  I have a 48 percent win rate but I get sick of the stat trolls.  So thats why mine are locked everybody has their own opinion and you should not be that concerned about it either.  Let others play their own game the way they want to and you play your game quit worrying about other players.  And I'm starting to think this is a TROLL post.

People guide their stats for varied reasons. I have no issues with that as stat shaming is a thing. 

Unless its the hidden profile person stat shaming then that is just not on!

As a secret agent and hero, I have to hide my stats in order to keep my enemies guessing on what my super powers are.

But remember, hidden or not, only by hard work and hard training you will overcome your strongest enemies.

It was certainly not a troll post. It was a legit question posted by a new player. If you're that sensitive about your stats, fine, hide em. I don't care. I just like to know who is legit, and who's talking out their [edited]. Interesting fact by the way, if you're so scared of trolls, stop feeding them. They go away.

I'm just going to abandon this one. Jeez, simple question, VERY defensive response. I humbly apologize to all those I offended with what I though was a rather simple innocent question. god forbid I'm responsible for anyone getting made fun of by complete strangers you'll never meet about stats that don't actually matter. I may be new to the game, but I'm not new to life, so here's a free piece of advice. Stop giving a crapabout the opinions of strangers. Based on my limited dealings with certain members of this forum, I may have seriously overestimated the overall maturity level of the player base. This will not happen again, and this thread can be deleted.

enjoy

you dont need 1000 match to post a opinion on a forum or a idea or a 50% winrate

I made my stats private as soon as I learned that I could. It has nothing to do with my skill, or decided lack thereof.

I believe everyone's stats should be hidden. I've seen too many games in tanks where the xvm crowd quit early because they didn't like the odds and too many players making decisions and expressing opinions on the basis of stats, rather than the situation at hand.

My stats don't mean anything anyway. I've spent way too many battles testing ships that I only play five or six times. As a tester I won't  division and I won't join a clan. It saves me from deciding what I'm allowed to say and finding polite ways to ask them not to ask. If you're curious I do not play well. I try to contribute but I am too aggressive. That doesn't mean that I am I'll informed about the game or that my opinion has little worth.

Judge a post by what it says and a player by how they try.
