You think adding a "Wards bought" stat would encourage people to buy more wards?

80/80 (I've been having these a lot lately)

I personally think so. I just played a game as Kennen where I felt I was the only one buying wards, but post game there was no way for me to tell.

Not a bad idea...people always like an ego boost :)

Everyone should just buy wards... I don't know how hard that is

Sometimes my team starts buying one or two when they see the message about me buying a ward, so it kinda sorta works a bit. Best way is to ask them nicely to buy one. More than that and they'll think they'll never get their big items.

I've always wondered how many wards I purchased throughout a game. I think a stat at the end would be quite nice to have.

this isn't an encouragement for you to buy more
it's an indicator that someone/people need to be raged at for not contributing

but by association when we get after those people for not buying any then they will in the future

Yeah they should have this. I had a support on my team not warding, so I was buying wards and I tell them to buy more wards and they say, "ok." Guy ends up buying a single ward. I tell him to buy more and he says, "wards are a lot of gold. Can't afford more." Guy then proceeds to single buy a banshees veil when they have 1 ap who's doing terrible...

I thought the text saying "X bought a Y ward" was a great start. It's a great way to catch people in their lies about buying wards. Top Olaf says he bought wards every time he went back. No brolaf, chat says you didn't.

Don't know how much an "in screen stat" is needed, though it's not like it'd take up a bunch of room or be hard to code.

Would be cool to have. I've actually thought about this before
