KDR is hard to hide, bro.
But if they give many points for doing teamwork stuff (like BF3) or stylish stuff (AC3), people will play nicely. It may seem like the standard player obssesses only with KDR, but it is actually a matter of points in general. Give points for other stuff and they will chase the bone.
I don't want them. I'm not just talking about leaderboards. I'm also talking about the little number next to your name. These "skill" levels just create misery for everyone involved. How many countless n00bs (as in new players) are discouraged everyday in multiplayer games because they see players with extremely high numbers next to their names? I only want the ability to check players' stats online with a computer on ND's website. You should not have the ability, in any way, to check another person's statistics, of any degree, ingame. Now, some of you may ask, how can we possibly be expressive to other players? Simple. We kill the Batman(jk). We can decorate nameplates that show up when one clicks your name in the lobby. These decorations can range from backgrounds to nicknames, like COD or PASBR. This notion of not having rankings also maintains the realism of TLOU, of not knowing what you will encounter, the idea of human unpredictability. Thoughts?
Should only be visible to the player. Off topic, but I don't want to see players name in a match, it makes the game unattractive and messed up and no KDR either.
If that happens and the game is actually decent online it will be my most liked game for a while.
I hate stats all they do is create misery and quitting.
