Pls Remove the Stat porn in the lobby Eugen

Postby littlebird2 » Tue 23 Dec 2014 03:37

As the title says. Beeing able to look at the stats of each player pre match ruins most matches. Team a with good ppl gets filled up very quick. Those who join later check the stat and leave. Only newbees or casualy players stay on the other team. Those matches are extremly boring and unexcited.

Pls eugen remove the abilty to view the Stats of each player before the match starts.

I've also seen people threaten to leave the lobby after saying, "please don't stick me with this newb player."
Needless to say, the new player ended up leaving. Felt bad for that person.

Stats would be great at end of game though.

They need to take that dick waving stat crap out of casual games and leave it with rank games and personal viewing.

Orcbuster said this about the a suggestion, and I agree... the ambiguity is by design, and that should extend to stats as well.

+1 It has basically turned regular matches into self-enforced ranked.

It's ok I found a better game.. wait what.

Stats are important. if I see 4-5 players with similar 80% wins stats, I leave. Those matches are rarely if ever fun.

I really hate when people try and stack teams and berate new players, it not only ruins the game for them but also makes people with good stats look like they are in on it (sometimes they are and shame on them but it makes the decent people look bad too).

TBH, the stats help pubs not get curb stomped, but it's an imperfect system with massive drawbacks. The alternative (simply not having them) isn't much better (frankly a bit worse).

If only Eugen would add some tutorials. The fact we had to make our own tutoring class is outrageous.

On the contrary, I find that people immediately try to join the more experienced team, resulting in more imbalance, at least in matches without teams. Of course, if there is a premade team, the stats do help give them away.

The best solution IMO would be to have an option for the host to make a random team game, where everyone just goes into one big pool and you choose one deck for REDFOR and one for BLUEFOR. You could get unlucky, sure, but people just wanting a casual game could join up without having to worry about the teams or stats one way or another.

So how do they expect them to get better?
