Meh, riot can make an easy workaround and disable names in champ select.
After all, LoLking only uses the data available in our profiles. Dunno why that's so terrible. It's only annoying if people look other people up during champ select.
This is what happened to Dotabuff.
I don't know why you guys are complaining. If you don't want people to see bad stats, then how about win your games?
Lolking gathers a wealth of statistics that helps a lot in analyzing what builds are most effective on different champions as well as which champions may be over or underpowered.
Tl;dr Lolking makes LoL better.
riot making mmr hidden soon
lolking only shows what is publicly available already lol
i like using LoLking to compare how i did against Team Mates and see how my enemies did compared to my team.
Anytime an app or 3rd party source comes around with a means of providing information a gaming community finds ways to abuse it to the point of demonizing it.
Even still... what's the problem? Report the extremists who harass you and move on. If someone decides they don't want to play with you... not a big deal.
