They will have to analyze data for a few years before they are ready.

This is unacceptable. Good players get HUDE disadvantages because of this.
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD A GAME, where you get penalized just because you are not a [edited]crapplayer?

IF THERE IS JUST A SIIIIINGLE artillery in the game... 100% focus on me.

SO, i got a chance, stay behind a building and do NOTHING, or move and die. Very [edited]gg.

I got a PM from one today. He was mad that I did XVM focus. But I don't use it, nor do I suspect most that hit you do for it to matter. 

 

All I did was aim for the other guy in front but missed.

They do it because of xvm. This is a well known fact. Especially artillery, but many times other players as well. I do it as well.

XVM is a game breaking feathure.

 

If you have bad stats, you get statshamed.
If you have good stats you get focused.

There are people who XVM focus for sure. We don't know how many, but I am sure it exists. Some players have told me as much, that's just the way they click.

OP, maybe you shouldn't have bought an account with blue/purple stats

Honestly I really hope it comes in soon. But, I am sceptical about it even happening at all. Here is my logic why:

 

I think WG generally likes the concept of XVM focus. Why? Think about it this way. When you get a player who is in the top .1%, a really talented player,  they will often clear up the battlefield. This means the regular players will be farmed to high hell and don't have the skill to position themselves and generally get owned. This also means all the average players on the uncums team have a boring game as the battle is over super fast and they have not done anything. In other words, for the masses, a unicum has a negative impact on the game experience. Either they kick your bum, or they deal all the damage so you don't get a chance too.

 

Whats the best solution, a really scummy one with XVM focus. It does not work all the time, but often does. So I doubt they will let you hide your stats, but we will see. I hope I am wrong, as the Arta focus and Donkey clipper yolos are crazy and I am not even purple. 

 

If you think about it, the people that choose to XVM focus players are the lowest of the low. They intentionally focus their fire on the good players to give themselves the advantage of winning. To me that sounds very cowardly? It might even result in an artificial inflation of their stats, but that's just it, it's artificial. It makes them look better than than actually are, not earned, just appearances. Gone of the days where Honor actually means something, but it does strike me as a cowardly act. 

 

Also the amount of times I have seen people toxic to bad players because they are "red" is crazy. Remove XVM for that reason alone.

One of the reasons to not reroll.

Others are lazyness, greediness and the fear to not be a good enough reroll ;)

 Sorry to break it to you but you aren't actually good enough that people would want to focus you, so if you are it's because you're making yourself an easy target.

You use XVM, too, so feel free to check how many of those "EVERYONE!!1" even have XVM installed. You'll soon find out that you'll have to turn the "everyone" into a "some". And that "some" is still a rather rough estimation, because you can rarely tell if it's really focus because of stats or simply because of positioning.

XVM = lulz...I do so enjoy making a recommendation to my team only to receive a comment "says the red"

 

yes the "red" xvm player said scout this location or fall back or wait for the heavy...if you're "red" xvm you must suck and your recommendation to your team is bad because you're "red" lulz.

 

lulz

 

lulz

 

lulz

 

 

don't forget to send me fan mail after the match telling me how "red" I am.

Isn't it an admirable example of cooperation how those few who have xvm installed somehow manage to tell EVERYONE!!1 who should be their target?

In a sea of red they will always focus the green one....

Hardly, that rarely ever happens. Requests to focus particular tanks because it's a Type 5/907/etc. sure, but that's nothing to do with the player driving it.

This. Not so many players uses XVM or XVM based mods. Furthermore, not all XVM users use stat feature of this mod.

I think the OP raises an interesting point....do English teachers these days just tell you to use [edited] if you can't find a suitable word to express your thoughts? I know exams these days are said to be easier but...
