I am able to select names from the leader board, but all that appears are a bunch of empty fields or dashes - no detail.
When I saw the empty data, I assumed (wrongly, according to your comment) that the developers removed the mistake.
If I'm doing something wrong, please assist me.

Thanks for any guidance.

I see the issue it has reset since patch. So it will only show the mech most played if they have played since patch day. Eg my account you can see a few of my mechs but not all as I havent played all divs since patch day.

I think this is bad. I think the intent of Solaris is that you stable a mech you have built up and learned to use to it's best potential. It's a competition. Does (insert fav NASCAR driver here) Provide the specs to the engine of his car or it's capabilities online? Does (insert fav football coach here) post his play book online? Maybe I don't want you copying my UBERmediocre builds. . . I got what I got, least I admit it. Boxers won't announce there weaknesses Solaris stables wouldn't either . . unless maybe there was a huge pay off . . .but that's a whole different aspect of the game:P

My bad didn't read to the end lol

Why not allow an opt in option to show your build? Really at the end of the day, it still requires the pilot to use a build effectively. So if you want to show off your build, allow the pilot to make it public.

Ehh, good players don't really give a sh!t if you see their build. Copy all you want, not gonna help you when we face off. It's more the mid-tier guys and the guys who are maybe at the top of division leader boards who are grinding/farming to get there but still lose to the best guys when they face off who are the ones who want to keep their secret sauce.

And like someone else said, it will encourage more people to play the mode who don't have time to experiment with builds if they can try out some builds that the top guys use. And then people actually get an accurate idea of their skill level, compared to QP, to see how effective they are with builds that are objectively effective.

Absolutely. It's not like the build is secret, the only actual secret sauce is player skill and familiarity with their own build.

Sure, it should. Why not?

It gives the opportunity to learn from others and to give advice if necessary.

It's always good for the online game to keep the community together, to provide the feeling of human interaction. This feature achieves this goal.

Hope, it will stay. Thank you.

I have played MWO on & off for the last five years. Recently I have come back and I will offer my thoughts as a newbie player.

I find the process of mech building to be one of hidden gems of the game.

This gives players access to optimize their purchased mechs to their play style.

If players want to find out good mech builds, they can find it easy on youtube and smurfys top daily, weekly and monthly mechs.

Keep the mystery alive, and inspire players to reach out to community in all MWO facets.

Thank you also for this thread, inspiring me to write my first post aswell.

ProFoos OUT.
