If you say something in text chat before a pvp match or in menu chat during the match, can the other player (or their friends nearby) click on your text and see your stats? I was in a pvp match and his friend was nearby watching. The friend said "nice pet" but I was afraid he would just click on my stats so I didn't reply and he called me rude. Was he just trying to see my stats or is that sort of thing banned? Sarai Thunderstrider Master
People can see your stats by clicking on what you say in the chat log. Trying to invoke a response whether positive or negative allows them to do this and it's not at all banned. It's a common tactic used to size up your opponent. In any case good work not replying and ignore what he said about you being rude. If you didn't want to give him an advantage that's your gain right?
Usually they get a friend to try to get you to talk. That way they can see your stats, but you can't see theirs. It's one of the major problems with allowing spectators. It's not rude at all to remain silent during a match.
