I'm curious to know who else thinks this should be a toggle option on whether to or not see peoples Badges during battles?

 

I personally find it rather distracting because im the kind of player who prefers to go in to battle and not know or care what stage people have got to in Ranked Battles or if they have completed all Personal Missions with Honours and so seeing someone who has got to a high rank in the Ranked shown in the line up on enemy team can be rather off putting i believe, not just me but for other players as well by the looks of things..... Its another reason i didn't like XVM because i prefer element of surprise and so with all that showing kind of ruins it?

 

I mean its not terribly bad and an interesting feature but would be nice to have the option to toggle that and so what do you guys think?

Everyone can disable their own badge if they want to. Anyone showing their badge is doing so optionally. If they want to give the additional information, let them.

 

I recommend the Stug IV badge. People will think you're retarded and not worth shooting at because you're proud of having reached a tier 5 tank of each tank type and played a few battles on each of them.

The Short Panel should only be the tanks, no badges, no platoons. Only relevant infaormation for the battle.

Disabled them for myself, what others prefer too show isn't that important ... but like petz says above .. the short option should be to just display tanks. I'd like that, cleaner :)

So disabled players should have badges so that people know they are disabled ?

I'd prefer an option to turn them off, too.
It's just pointless fuss noone needs.

I use the Aslain modpack, somewhere in there is an option to turn off badges. 

I prefer to have xvm stats and badges off. Playing the game with less prejudgment makes me a better player.

Voted no because it's just a bit of fun. Could be worse, we could have the patches they added in Warboats that are displayed slap-bang in the middle of the screen when you're sunk.

 

Actually, I'd like that too because why not? :great:

It would defy the purpose of having them if players could disable them. So I voted no. I don't really care about them but they are the prize of many competitions were players earn the right to brag. So let them brag :medal:

Those don't clutter the UI, so they are ok.

Would a disable badge allow you to park your tank in the enemy base for free?

Totally with you. 

 

I removed XVM ages ago for a reason, now I find myself looking which team has the better badges (which is complete nonsense of course). I play better with and with less frustration without any indication about player strength (however unreliable it may be). 

 

Not to mention they clutter up the screen and I don't like the bragging aspect of it. For me it's completely useless information.

It tells me who's desperate for recognition and is unlikely to help because it might damage their WN8 or win rate. Although only during the countdown, I don't have player names over tanks by default and haven't got time in battle to cross-reference names to the player lists to see what badge they're wearing anyway.

I dont mind the badges, but it would be nice if I had more options then those for the personal missions.

I've seen 48% that had less then 1200 average damage on ranked in their 430U after 100+ games with a 65% WR, thus he got a ranked gold badge. Just as I've seen 49% with the badge to do all 4 campaigns with honor. For some It means they are good. For others it can also mean they got carried lots, or got really lucky on their missions. So I've learned not to use it as a pointer tbh. It's as useful as going by average XP to determine who is better of two players on a tank. If one never had a single day of premium. And his average damage and kills is higher, he will still have less average XP vs the one that has premium on constantly.
