I display my stats because I am good and I am not ashamed to show it

    Percentage of vote: 24.42%

  2. No at all... (65 votes [75.58%])

    Percentage of vote: 75.58%

I display my stats as they are, even if they are poor, I still stick them out!

  1. That's what I'd say! (25 votes [29.07%])

    Percentage of vote: 29.07%

  2. Not sure I would flash them if they were bad. (16 votes [18.60%])

    Percentage of vote: 18.60%

  3. Don't care, it is for me. (45 votes [52.33%])

    Percentage of vote: 52.33%

I am not displaying my stats; I don't know how to do it... (hum).

  1. Yep, I can't be bothered. (22 votes [25.58%])

    Percentage of vote: 25.58%

    Percentage of vote: 36.05%

  2. Absolutely not. A bad player can have a good judgement. (55 votes [63.95%])

    Percentage of vote: 63.95%

It establishes the trustworthiness of the advice I receive at a glance.  I could dig deeper into someone's stats if I had the time but the forumers whose blue/purple stats are heavily skewed by seal clubbing are pretty well known at this point.


If I ask "How's this tank I'm thinking of buying?"  and I get two different types of opinions, one from blue/purple players, one from yellow/green players.  Whose opinion will be more valuable to me?  


If you want proof that better stats in a signature leads to better advice, go find one of the capping/anti capping threads and see which side all the unicums and all the yellow players are on.

I'm not stealing kills, I'm handing out Confederate medals.

My signature shows all the stats that anyone ever needs to see.

I think the availability of player stats, that transparency, is useful and leads to more honest discussions than would take place otherwise. I include my stats in my signature with that spirit of transparency in mind.
