It’s another annoying change…why?
How would the site know which stats to bring up if you aren’t logged in? Its kind of a vital part of the system.

You do know that most, if not all stats websites don’t require you to login?
Bungie.net is a fine example here, you can go view anybody’s stats to your hearts desire.
Being logged in or out doesn’t change any URLs, there is no reason to make us login, unless someone from the Web Team wants to make a correction/statement.
At the same time requiring log in automatically has you set up to use the forums, allows you to navigate to your specific stats easily without needing to search or bookmark a page. For instance Blizzard’s profiles while you’re able to view anyone’s page through a search, certain functions are locked until you log in and once logged in all your user data is easily accessible and you access the forum through the same account. So this method of doing things is far from unusual.
