PvP stats in your WZ que screen? It shows total wins, total kills, total medals, total MVP votes but not total WZ's played so whats the point? AFAIK there are no rewards for hitting certain benchmarks (1000 kills, 50 W's, 100 MVP's etc...).

Why not just show us the ratios: K/D, W/L, Medals/WZ, MVP/WZ etc... that actually tell us something

Maybe Bioware doesn't to give baddies any more fuel by throwing their .113 winning percentage in their face.
What we don't understand, we can make mean anything.

As opposed to the ones with the .1337 winning percentage.

but yet you know they have the mechanics to count losses as they do it with ranked warzones. but this was by far the least of their problems when dropping 1.2 To me by far this was still the worst patch they ever released. Some will argue 1.4 but 1.4 wasn't any where near as bad as 1.2

Bioware should add some titles or something for milestones with the stats.

Maybe, but how many would conceal those titles on purpose, just to lure people into a false sense of security, right before turning on the pewpew fountain :P

Do you not understand, it is just very difficult for EAware...

Its probably down to the PuGs. If you're losing and it has an impact on your stats (ie shows your defeats), then even more people will exit warzones when the team is losing.

either way, its yet another half-baked mechanic brought in when they rushed it out.
to strive to seek, to find. And not to yield.

nm this post, I thought you were talking about something else.


On topic: They won't players how many game they lost, because when Jeff sees that he has a record of 15-120, he likely won't play anymore.

I get that they don't want to "rub it in" to the baddies but why bother showing the stats at all then? Just do away with those stats and be done with it (or do it right and show us the ratios).

Also, where's the healing/tanking stats?
