    Linked accounts/profile

    Hello.

    I was checking my bf4stats profile as usual when i noticed another player's name on top right corner of my profile. The dude is someone I play very frequently against in some servers on my region.
    Some people are saying it is a "linked account". What is that? And why this dude's profile linked to mine?
    I feel that being very uncomfortable. How does having a "linked account" affect my profile and how can I remove it?

    Thanks in advance.

    When you open the stats of your player, it's name will appear beneath the big top right player. Just click the little arrow next to your player name to set it to be the main player.

    The first one that is set there, is just random. It's just the player that is used to render previews for the graphics. Otherwise you can just see it as a navigation help.

    It is too much coincidence that a player that I play frequently with is linked there. It isn't random, that's for sure.. anyway, thx for the answer

    When you visit the website the first time, the last updated player will be chosen. You see the "Latest player updates" on the Home page? The first one will be taken. Then we store that selection in your browsers local storage.
    You can test that, just open an incognito window or a private browser session and visit one of our websites Home page.
