OK, so as near as I can figure WG gave us all avatars as part of the birthday celebrations, and people got avatars based on how long they had been playing - with a big gold V on a red background for those of us that have been playing for 5 years.

 

For the last few days I've been looking at WRs of people with those avatars post battle, and while it's not universally true, they tend to be fairly good players (not unicums, but at least know what they are doing).  Which makes sense - if you are still playing at this point, you've probably learned a few things.

 

So now when you start a game and you have 3-4 big gold Vs and the other side has none or 1, you can predict what is going to happen with a good degree of accuracy.

Thanks WG.  It's not exactly WR, but close enough.

I wouldn’t trust on that alone... However I really like my avatar for being around 5 years.

I’ve seen more 40% players with the V vs 50% and above. I still haven’t equipped an avatar.

OK, partially because it will make the game more interesting, I'm gong to track it for 100 games.

 

So far after 5 games the average WR of the gold V players is 54.78%, the less than 5 years is 47.97.

 

If I get to 100, I'll share the spreadsheet.

I’d say the only avatars that can show a players ability are the Platinum and Diamond league ratings avatars. You can have tons of battles and still be bad. I’ve seen plenty of that.

I like the unique look of it and appreciate that they did this.

I do see habitually bad players also.

 

It does tell us that long timers may have good control of trends and ofc. shouldn't be taken lightly... I mean if they made it this far I'm sure they enjoy blitz. And we tend to be good at the things we enjoy

LoL it’s all “I hate avatars” and “ avatars are stupid”

Until someone gets an exclusive one, that most people can’t get. 

Then it’s all “ I like the unique look of it and appreciate that they did this...” and “I think it’s great!”

Which is why I won't equip the V, the top Raisin one OR the victory one. I'd rather they think the guy with no avatar doesn't know what he's doing.

Not sure I was ever vocal about it but I never saw the point of them until these latest ones came out. I think the victories and raisins ones are useful. I use them as reference points at the start of a game - a who’s who.

I don't care how they look, I just want the better RNG the good ones give you.


 

If a person feels powerless or insignificant in their life, the easiest way to achieve power is to make other people angry; every internet troll has known this since 1993 and every toddler has known it since the dawn of time.

l also have not used an avatar yet. And am amazed by the players with tens of thousands of games and win rates in the low 40%

People dismissing the usefulness of them are missing an easy informative point, it's just silly not to review them like VOP states. From playing poker, it's just the same thing as categorizing a new player at a table on appearance, buy in, drink, and comfort level. PLENTY of times your stereotyping will be incorrect - but not the majority. And so for every Veteran with 44wr, or 15k winner at tier 3, or t46 Raisenai farmer you'll still have more on the positive side. It's a small but valuable tool and any edge isn't worth ignoring.
