I quickly look at stats + recent matches just to get an impression of what I have to play with/against (especially since I reset now, winning is important).
I generally just check to see if they're smurfs, not anything else.
Just check to see what kinda player I'll be up against. It's extremely useful to see who you're up against mid as well. Going up against a smurf when you think it's someone in your bracket = a bad time.
I check mmr first, then win % and if it is odd I look to games played. Then I look kd and if a player is under 1kd I also check wards.
dam i wont read nothing
i just read the tittle and get upset
i come here just to tell you something.
The KDR would'nt guarante you that the player will play good
i saw a centenary if 2.0kdr TRASH, that only use his skills AT THE END, I MEAN THEY DONT HELP; THEY WAIT U WASTE ALL UR SKILLS AND EVEN U DIE, THEN WHEN THE ENEMY is at 10 HP then they use 2000dm ulti.
thats how the get their kdr
or for example his lil 5 years old brother, can be playing in his account
who waranted u that?
so STOP IT
I only look for Smurfs. If they pick a squishy like SS i pick Rampage...it works =P
I've lost matches by picking a carry (an easy one even) and then having some guy rage and whine how I suck (before the match even starts). We lost because him and then the other players refused to support me as a carry all because my KDR is 0.75.
I'm not the best damn carry player but I can play something easy like Arachna and we had no other decent carry picks for that match.
There's one thing I love doing, wich is checking if enemy team has any ahmagawd-carry-only blue/pink that will go for either zeph mid, sillhou, magebane, devourer or pebs. If positive, i'll make sure to **** his kdr and arrogant playstyle then taunt him with macros all day. It's pretty funny how those types gets mad when things aren't going nearly as they planned.
You check the entire list in the pop up quick stats.
This helps you determine which hero you should be going and asking specific players what you think they should go especially if you are Blue or Pink.
You do not want to ask or make a orange (full carry under 1 KDR) player pick support.
KDR doesn't matter - orange player who's been carried by clan playing solo this game (5 hard carry heroes under 1 KDR).
That example player will cost you the game.
A carry player should be equal or above 1.2 KDR.
You can't carry if you go 8/14/9 average.

Common hero picks to see what kind of hero they play (e.g str, agi, int) and how they have been fairing in recent games (e.g win / loose streak)
If in a non-mw then I will also check wpm.
MMR I usually use to gage on who may need watching / assistance the most (e.g high mmr may need my help on ganks, I play support usually, lower mmr may need my help in defence) however I have played with low mmr's that have performed better then higher mmr's so this is just a blanket type check.
That's about it.
P.S buying wards is always winning, esp blue wards against invs heroes.
take my stats for example:
1) 1650mmr (used to be 1750 after compression, but w/e)
2) 2388matches played
4) top played 15%tort 4%magebane 3%valk 3%wildsoul 3%predator
you would automatically call me a bad player and spamm voice chat OMG 0.86KDR CARRY PICKER if i would pick a carry
yet i am perfectly capable of carrying a game
you know why ? because my first 1500 games i was a big pubtrash playing with my 1400 friends all the time and my latest 500 games i have been playing at a higher lvl
FACT: you can not judge a player by anything but Win% and games played (unless if we are talking about filthy smurfs LIKE YOURSELF)

Well you are right if we talking long time account with no resets.
I was thinking from a fresh point of view.
Of course to even get to 1 KDR even you'll proparly need like 7,000 kills NET with no deaths.
The numbers add up overtime. Really hard to move them numbers after thausands of games.
I compare top 5 hero's to his KD yes, but winrate > rest
i rather not reset my stats so that dumb people think im a bad player
and btw trust me there are plenty people out there that are not resetting stats because like myself they dont care
im happy that you understand my point
Win%, Gpm, Wards Placed, Heroes most played, Last hit stats, Games played, MMR, KAD.
If I'm glancing, KAD in relation to heroes played and win%. If there's an andromeda, I'll expect less KAD than someone with Flint Beastwood, etc.
EDIT: Wins and losses on the "recent" list..
This is why we need longer timer for ALL PICK so we can check stats better.
nope, not important at all, i dont know who he played against or with and some roles have different kd from others.
I only check if im up against a smurf, thats all
Ok. So if you leave a game, you are sent an AIDS needle. Additionally, you get +1 disconnect AND are forced to play as Kongor next game. You can't leave his lair, except when a rune spawns. You must run directly to the rune (still as Kongor) and guard it. If you do not do this, then HoN immediately shuts down and formats your hard drive and injects you with the AIDS needle.
