Current Rating inspection in LFG

Arenas
I don't have high hopes as this is "just" the EU forums but still try to give it a go.

Prity sure I'm not the only person who suffer from inviting ppl from LFG for arenas asking for let's say 2 000 CR and ppl with lot less like 1 200- 1 600 que.
The fact they que is not the problem but that I have no proper way to inspect them other than playing a game with them is kinda broken.

The bigger problem is that I can't even check them on this very site as the PvP tab is broken for many players, error: 404 or simply aint showing rating coz the person haven't played arenas that week yet. (not to mention names that contains caracters I have no clue how to write on my keyboard)

So my questions are:
Will we ever get an "upgraded" LFG system where we can inspect the qued persons CR?
Is there any chance to upgrade it so we could see the highest achieve aswell in given bracket the que is for?

Will I ever get an answear at least from a CM?

Regards,
A frustrated, yet loyal subscriber

Yes I know, but is that good that you have to use a website to check something that is tracked in game?
Also it uses data from the website what have issues.

Also no offense but I couldn't type your name in on that site
Same issue but don't think it will be fixed sometime soon. Even i know russian and can speak they language my game just showing they nick names like ????? when they type something. There is no way for me to even copy them. :D

Mm~ I wouldn't exactly put it like that. I'd say the golden rule is to not play with people who makes it seem like you can't communicate with them. So yeah, the presumption is that a Russian can't be communicated with if they don't show it beforehand, because their English proficiency is rated so low (which can be seen, often). https://www.ef.se/epi/ they're ranked #42, near the bottom of the Moderate skill level. (I know places like Ukraine plays on the same servers since they also use the cyrillic alphabet, but the servers' chosen language is Russian and there's no real practical distinction you can expect players to make between the players who plays on them.)

Personally, I use the same criteria for everyone. First comes the exp req, and then comes the question whether or not they mention their exp in their note, since it's asked for in the description. If they don't mention it, then I can only assume they either haven't read it, or don't understand it. But since there's a difference between knowing just a few common terms like "Exp" or "cr", and being proficient in a language, I often decline players with cyrillic names if they don't show a little extra to compensate for the expected stereotype.
In the end, it just comes down to how much you can expect out of a stranger on the internet. So the responsibility of making a good impression falls on the person applying.

I just went this far to explain because I just simply don't wanna see a bunch of crying players with names in cyrillic coming here later. It has happened before, so it can definitely happen again.
We lost 100+ ratings yesterday because of this... I wrote 1.9+ cr as required and 2k exp. Most of the people, who queued were 1600-1700 ranged... They linked 2400 achievements and Legion elites (guess there is an add-on, which hacks achievements), but still couldn't bubble, or give my partner BOP, or a !@#$ing dispel. Well, at least in like 2 hours we capped. When we are in party stilI can't inspect them. I don't care anymore as Blizzard doesn't. There's a reason why they lost millions of subscribers over the years.

Also this. It's a basic rule in wow: Never invite russians. Not even for pve. Just never.

There is actually a website where you can create fake achievements. The website gives you a script for an ingame link to the created achievement. Posting this will show it as it an achieved achievement by the character from which it is posted.

Nice... :( Thank you for the info... We'll use checkpvp then from now on. I was stupid and naive trusting people. We learned the lesson.

Thats why I would love to see this kind of upgrade in game, as it should take data from your achieve tab.

Yep I usually end up like that aswell.
Yeah there is a problem with Cyrillic nicknames. Battleground targets automatically transliterates them for example, so it is pretty simple algorithm and I don’t see the reason why blizzard can’t do the same.

Install it. You can copy name-realm from everybody, and you just paste it to the https://check-pvp.fr/ website even russian names. Simple and easy. Oh and yes, never trust ppl in lfr.

Thats the problem, you can't do anything about the fake achieves if they wisper it to you, and you must use a 3rd party site to check rating.
So finding a player instead of just picking one from the UI itself takes a lot longer if it is even reliable.

Check-pvp is nice as long as you don't want to check russian or people with names i can't write.

All russian names should be banned or auto translated. Also all that áàâãä and other

Well i do agree but for that matter there are at least 2 addons to solve that. One of them has already been mentioned here and i can only recommend using them.
Well for quests there was Thottbot in Vanilla but now we have dynamic questing instead of using a website:)

So only few years and we might get this aswell.
You should just be able to filter to XP(maximum CR in a bracket, which is a recorded stat!) and/or current rating.

It's so simple, they already have this stuff setup for ilvl.
