    I think a poll would be good for this thread.
    I vote No.

    I used to strive to get more wins than losses and dread any losses as that meant I might soon become equal or again have more losses. It made me enjoy the game a lot less than I do now kind of not knowing- even though I hate stat whores I gotta admit it influences you a lot.

    [Suggestion] Do we want our losses back?

    Hi everyone,

    Recently losses disappeared on our screen. Some have said GREAT! Others HELL NO!

    So I will try to weight Pros/Cons mentioned by the community:

    Do we want our losses back! YES SIR!

    - Hiding information means Communism!
    - Can be used to "measure" your skills (i.e. improvements)
    - Kills the game community
    - Encourages people to "throw/ruin" a game
    - Innate thrill & will to win
    - No pain no gain
    - Overtime will make people not care about games
    - Will ruin the competition level
    - Boost motivation

    Do we want our losses back! NOT AT ALL!

    - Quells a lot of the "e-peen"
    - It gives you low-self esteem
    - W/L ratio is NOT a proper way to measure one's gameplay
    - Players have a tendency to be depressed
    - Previous games such as HoN were good examples why W/L should not be displayed
    - Makes a dota game more relaxed with a stress free environment
    - Players have a tendency to rage/cry less
    - Play the game for fun
    - Pressure players (How loss stat puts on players)
    - Kills motivation
