And this is exactly the problem with showing useless stats. People, such as yourself, only look at ones that help them prove their point, whatever the point may be.
You dont have one at all but you think showing everyones KD/MMR is proving stats should be shown, so you try to make us look terrible.
However, you purposely neglect to show that all top 5 of my heroes played are support.
Therein lies the problem with this community, thanks for the perfect example.
Close this thread man.
It's done for.
The point would be to finally be able to actually play the game without someone loses a poorly chosen team fight by himself then sitting in the well for the next 20 minutes calling out everyone on his team for not having a KD ratio that rivals their Call of duty stat page in a game where its completely useless.
When did I say that?
Made up bullshit.
But I like it, it sounds retarded so keep it.
Stats will decide my bride.
I want a homemaker type girl so she will be .7 KD and all support heroes.
If she plays heroes like hammer storm she is a butch.
If she plays heroes like Scout or NH she will be freaky in bed.
I think that they need to give us the option to choose "show stats" or not when u create a game...
I think there is a better solution to this problem, but it involves S2 doing work, and we all know how bad S2 is at doing stuff that can't be sold for gold coins.
There should be a better MM algorithm and/or increase the concurrent population on international servers. If people of the same stats/rating were matched together the amount of judging would happen less. S2 needs to increase the player base by marketing it. At least try to get people who quit the game to come back. S2 probably won't do that since they don't want to spend much money on marketing, and they just sold off the russians to garena, they are not interested in increasing the concurrent player base on international servers.
Another option would be to incentivise people to play certain modes. Like offer an extra coin or 2 for playing BP or BD. Limit the amount of AP games so people will stop picking crap line ups. Since more people would be playing only a few modes, there is a greater pool to match up people with similar stats.
S2 won't do this though, since they can't make any money from this.
So all this thread has done is effectively proved that this guy named Psychel is an absolute assclown? Great stuff.
Also, I don't care either way.

You have no idea how stressful it is going into each game and praying you team is competent when you're a support player.
[WSHH] is a social clan, Not a competitive one. Wanna join? Just contact me ingame and I'll send you an invite no matter the stats or rating.
If they simply didnt track stats other than Win/Loss then people wouldnt be afraid to sacrifice themselves as a demented shaman for their carry to get another kil or escape a bad fight.
Then youd hear people *****ing more about teamfights and who did what than stats and how many kills you dont have on a tempest.
The stats are not the problem, the players are. They find excuses for everything and will always trashtalk.

Some stats are pretty useless I agree but some of them are like a badge of honor. Like having a 10 KDR people would go wow you are either awesome or a super KSing dick
I agree stats should be a little more rounded overall like you don't need average creeps, wards..etc and they only skew peoples perception since stats do tend to fall on the low side over time like no one can keep like 15 wards a game or 30 kills a game everyone has bad days even if they are good players. Id much prefer to have a loose achievements system you know like 20 kills in a game gets one 20 assists gets one 10 wards...etc the list goes on.
As a side note id love if mmr wasn't shown either but a more looser ranking like how SC2 does it. Its more skewed now since they effect win rate in the match now too so what is mmr if its not the only thing that effects matching? And that is not really all that much.
