Hiding stats

Reading the forum I realize that many players have turned their stats off for one reason or another.  I think this is a good idea for several reasons.  My question is, how is this done?

Thanks for any replies!

Yeah man, I am happy to show my stats to anyone whom wants them. But I consider it vital intelligence data that I can deny from my enemy. 
They believe hidden stats are always Potato's :cap_haloween:

What’s better than hiding your stats is to try and improve your gameplay.

Since the upgrade yesterday I've noticed that the after battle results you're not able to check the players record anymore . So there's no need to go hide your Stats ......

Hiding stats doesn't preclude improving gameplay -- and most of the reasons for hiding stats have nothing to do with them being "bad".

But there are now mods that put people's stats in-game, like the one in WoT.  Lots of people hid their stats once that came out.

If person X thinks I'm a horrible player because I hide my stats, that's no skin off my nose.  Just don't show your broadside to me, and you you'll never have to care...

You can look them up on the web OR add them to contacts then the profile will show. I think it's a temp bug.

Match Maker monitor.  Don't get it.  It ruins the game.

Just pure coincidence then that there is a such a huge corelation.  Snarkieness aside,   agreed one can always improve game play  , hiding stats or not.

Sometimes, I want to hide only because someone keeps staring at my big guns 🤣. Then other times, I can't hide because I am playing my DD lolibote. Then everything stares. The bows, the cats, the voice actors. Pick one and they will keep looking. 😏🤔😎

This is exactly the type of toxicity for why you should hide your stats.

Great Blasto is absolutely correct, the best reason to hide stats is because it annoys all the right people.

 

Thanks gentlemen.

It's toxic to crap on people for bad stats.  Some people just play the game to have fun and dont want people looking up their stats and insulting on them.

The only time I think stats should be "called out" is when dead ship captains are criticizing your play in game.  Why should I listen to someone who has 4 times the games played I do and clearly hasn't learned anything because they are garbage.

The biggest “experts” on whatever topic you care to discuss on this forum mostly have hidden stats, and therefore zero credibility. 
 
Do you want meta commentary or ship critique from someone who can’t even muster average performance or winrate? Me neither.

Since I'd rather play Co-Op, why bother.  I turned it back on.

Annoying the wrong people is a good one...    ++ for that one.
