The stats dropping is not a result of not using the radar.

Don't make me post video's

I gather the slide show is getting worse. Time to upgrade that abacus. :P

Especially because bots make up the majority of every game, it'd be really nice to hide all player names. Having 3 [edited]jump you just because you're a human player is the opposite of fun.

If you seriously think that that radar mod doesn't give an advantage, then you're foolish.

 

I fly without the radar and the mini map although I have the map on my RMB I've never used either one they just cluttered up the screen so their not that much of an advantage, This is how I fly....

lol---We've really gone WAY too far off topic now.

 

Your input has me thinking that some form of this idea (concealing opposing player names/stats) might actually work. 

 

But before I'm fully convinced this would work, some sort of block or work-around must first be initiated so that all these MOD-dependent players don't just gain a further advantage on the rest of us.

Try playing the game with no HUD. Or at least minimum settings.

It puts a new perspective on the game...more so when you do not know the friendlies from the enemy and you kill

a couple of friendlies.

Back in the WoWS alpha there was a bug where the over target markers would disappear along with no lead indicator for torpedoes and the only way to tell friend from foe was the minimap.

I suspect that you're one of the few who can excel playing like that.

I use my mini map at all times, but I still get surprised from time to time because it doesn't offer a more refined area display that's offered by the radar mod.


 

I've watched numerous videos of players using that mod, I and find the level of information it offers to be very advantageous in numerous situations.

But, I suppose, from Losttwo's  perspective while playing ground attack planes that it offers little advantage to him.

I had made the assumption that he was playing mostly fighters, which I guess he doesn't play as often as GAA.

It can't really work, as all pilot stats are openly displayed on the WoWP portal, which is where the data gathering/mining does and would then occur.

So, to stop data mining, the portal would have to stop displaying pilots information, meaning that clan pages would also be effected, the HoF would be a thing of the past.

And even if WG were to do that, the client offers all that information while ingame, meaning that data mining would be able to retrieve the information from there as well.


 

The only way it could/would work is if they completely removed stats from the game.

Maybe they should just give us a bot mode, then. Warships has one and people love it.
