I dunno if I remember it right, but...wasn't the option to hide your stats teased during the Xmas event to be available this year?

 

When's that coming?

 

I haven't had anyone comment on my stats, bad or good, for a while now but you know...if I wanna hide 'em, I'd like to be able to.

 

So, yeah, when's it coming?

 

Hiding it on the forum and the web, first and foremost, if we so desire...and hiding it in-game, or having a third option to only make them visible to players on your friendslist.

 

Really, when will we be able to hide them?

 

I may sound a little weird, probably because it's 2am. *yawn*

 

 

There's also a poll if you haven't noticed.

Player stats should not be available in battle, everywhere else it's fine.

I dont know about service record, i like it showing stats but yeah an option to hide/display your tanks would be cool, i think thats extra info. And XVM removed would be perfect.

I'm guessing that video was more of a way to show that out of the most asked for things. They could give you one item for now at least. As in tank races. The wheeled video released recently showed a race between wheeled and tracked lights... or a track. I suspect that will be the race track later this year as teased in that video.

 

As that card said hide stats and player names. But one card also said offline mode. And considering how defensive WG has been about that for years. As that means giving your client data only on the server. Inc detailed hitboxes for tanks and maps etc. So I'm willing to bet it was... just a list of most asked for things that are asked about in every single Q&A... they can't or won't do yet. But races is something they can do. 

 

 

But that said... just a simple ability to hide the ingame one via the battle results drop down menu via your name etc could be enough for most. Vs XVM etc. Considering how that works. As WOWS has hidden the service record that you can't see in game on players you faced. But still, XVM can get stats off the public profile on their portal.

I would welcome no stats in matches since they just result in toxicity and overall negatively impact the gaming experience, not to mention they can grant an advantage in terms of predicting locations etc based on stats. Having the ability to look at someones service record in the garage I don't mind, same with stats publicly available on the forum and third-party sites, they can be quite a useful tool when discussing things and evaluating the point of view someone have on something.

Service record should be public, and xvm should be built in (at the very least showing your team). Have not used xvm for months, since I returned to the game, because don't want to bother with updating it so often, but I miss that stuff. You should be able to know who is a tomato on your team, that you cannot count on, and even if you don't have xvm, you should be able to check/confirm after battle if a player who acted retardedly in game, or chimped out in chat, or ping spammed, really is a tomato. Also you should know, if a person who makes ingame request is a tomato, or knows what he is doing.

 

Only way I could image restricting access to stats, if that player is not allowed to chat or ping in battle.

Also even if you hide your stats, you would still know if those are bad, and it would still feel bad for you.

They already announced you will be able to hide stats. I will do it as soon as it's possible.

 

Stats should not be available in battle. Arty/player focus on good players is a real thing and it's infuriating, especially for unicums.

 

Not to mention toxicity towards bad players, which can f*ck right off.

Shouldn't be a thing in battle, but not having access to service records will be a giant pain for clans.

 

As for not showing stats in the forums, what is there to care about? If you have bad stats, but a sharp tongue, you just end up luring the idiots out while 'proper' forumites look at the content, not the player. Sometimes stats are relevant too. Of course you can tell most of the time what the deal is, but it is very helpful to know that someone defending e.g. TDs play them almost exclusively.

Banning ingame stats mods would be a good thing, but giving people the option to hide stats would be really bad. They should always be visible, because of many reasons. Not being able to check them would again be a kind of castration of the game for the normal players.

 

btw: The poll is stupid.

I'd be happy for it to be optional as in WoWs.  However I don't care who sees my stats.  

 

I suppose if you chose to hide your stats then you shouldn't be allowed to view those of other players......

The players can hide their stats in WoWS so can't see any good reason why WoT players should not be able to do the same.

It is a default feature in World of Warships, I don't see why it cannot be implemented in World of Tanks as well.

WG should fix problems like Obj 907 and MM first.

Stars are good to measure players.

I think I see more comments about people's stats here in the forum than ingame.

[ ] stats available for friends (friends can see you stats)

[ ] stats public (everyone can see your stats)

[ ] stats public in garage but not in battle
