    I have heard this compromise, and think it is a good one.

    Valve should still allow the data to be accessed for people with the option set to "Private", but it should disassociate the data from the player's steamid/dota account, whatever. The names would show up as <private> but still have their stats, and still show up as "players", but with no way to trace it back to their in game account.

    That way 3rd party sites can still have the data, and people can have their privacy protected.

    This poll is bad. Currently valve does let 3rd party sites use statistics.. so answer yes?

    I was pretty clear Valve did not want things like Rating, that is the reason they hid the MMR that was visible in the console. Dotabuff should have respected Valve's decision. I really like that Valve don't allow things like this, it would turn the community into a flame fest, we all can see what happened to HoN and LoL. You know how they say 'Learn from your mistakes'; Valve is more like 'Learn from other's mistakes' :d ! Good job Valve !

    How about a popup on the first start of Dota2 after the Update with the possibility to choose. "Private" or "Public"?

    So everyone would see and react to the change and both parties would be happy.
    The DBR idea of Dotabuff was pretty damn awful and I totally agree with Valve's way of dealing with it, but this destroys the whole platform - a thing I don't think is appropriate.

    Probably did this so no one can see how bad their Matchmaking truly is.
