We really need stats now.
Well.. im about to hit my 1000th game and im starting to feel "what is the point?"
Average k/d, wards, creepkills & denies should be introduced into everyones profile so anyone can check it out. When i join a game with 4 friends i want to see if the 5th is a capable player before letting him solo mid with his sand king.. with stats i couldve gone into his profile and notice he has an average k/d of 3 kills and 19 deaths and 49 creepkills per game. I would not have allowed him to solo mid. (he was probably also russian)
No honestly, it is what dota needs.. rankingboards for publicplayers and whatnot.
It's a lot harder for bad players to convince themselves they're not bad when their stats reflect their gameplay.
Then they have to try to argue that stats don't matter in addition to having terrible teammates instead of just arguing that they lose because they have terrible teammates.
Basically lots of people won't want this so it's probably not going to be added.
This thread will be full of flames.
I honestly see no reason to not add it.

People that is not that good have to realise that there is better people out there, interested in these kind of things.
No, this would defeat the purpose of a team-based game
Explain further please. Why would this defeat the purpose of a team-based game?

By endgame, the average support would have about equal assists, more deaths, less kills, and far less CS than your average carry. Doesn't say anything about the skill level of said players
The only stat that is useful is win/lose
Of course i was thinking about that. Right now the profile displays you're most succesful heroes. If you play alot of support this will show up and people will see that you are a supportplayer. Makes sense?

Selfish decisions, constant kill-stealing, just generally rude behavior all around because they care more about numbers than anything else.

"you're not gonna be the carry, you've only got an average of 290 GPM -- you're probably gonna be shit. So just buy wards and let me farm, noob."
Wards mean the least of all stats. People will just buy wards once the game is "over" entirely to pad their stats. This usually involves buying wards and throwing them down in the fountain when they think they've "lost".
But worst of all: people will begin to treat per-game statistics as a more meaningful way of determining skill than actually winning - causing a lot of players to AFK when they think they've lost in order to maintain their KDR, and will cause a lot of players to "farm" stats instead of just finishing the game when they have the advantage. Another reason why stats mean virtually nothing.
Point in case.

Although the anit-russian part of your post makes me don't like you, I also agree that there should be some reliable information about your team mates (k/d is usually not reliable btw).
On the other side, I see it as the matchmaking's job to put people with similar skill level into the same team. I really don't like how currently people with 150 wins play together with people with 7 wins. It makes your suggestion kind of necessary.
All of the above is bullshit and you know it.

Honestly Mittsies, i don't think this game is for you.. perhaps Motorcross Madness 2 is your type of game.
(user warned for post)
