straight forward way to find ratings and class of player?

Is there a straight forward way to see the rating and class of a player while playing the game? I see how they are listed next to a user's post. But does that mean if you wish to know the ratings and class of a player you must come to the forum section and then search for a post by that player? It seems like there must be an easier way.

On the homepage, in the lower right is a link straight to the player stats page. Unfortunately, you need to be premium to search.

For premium members, you go to the Stats tab, then the Players page, type in their name, and you get all their basic stats.

It IS informative, but can be taken with a grain of salt. Higher rated players don't always play better, and the opposite is true.

It depends a lot on rapport, chemistry, personality and what mood you both are in.

And also, a bit of that elusive thing that "plays no part in Diplomacy"-

...luck.

And really, for me, that unknown is a big part of the attraction.
