Tell us what you want. Just yelling a single word is pretty retarded and you should consider adding some nice words, which might explain what you want.

It works in randoms, FL, ranked, events, grand battles, etc.

 

It doesn't work in training rooms, global map, strongholds and tournaments.

its a tool for unicums to hide their stats so arty can't pick them out of the team to target them.. or so they think.

it randomizes the user name in battle so xvm can't recognize you

OMG ffsake its not arty alone that target people.  it could be useful..  though we will probably get cries of


 

" OMG GAME LOST COS I CANT SEE THEIR STATS I'm outta here its not fair! I cant pre-decide when to drown at the start"

actually, further to my post I have heard that some Unicums used it, not to focus people, but to know whether players were good or not, when the enemy player is likely to over extend or not or even be able to hit them or not.  Therefore focus on weaker players.    it was more of a know your enemy tool in the hands of Unicums.

Finally, good news, shame its off by default, hopefully it won't be that easy to pick people out who are using it.

Not sure if you guys remember the functionality of the anonymizer from the WG fest announcement so:

 

  • You will be able to see the anonymous player stats and real name in the results screen after the battle.
  • Platoon mates see your real name.
  • You can still report, blacklist and befriend an anonymous player just like before.
  • Getting reported a lot for unsportsmanlike conduct could temporarily or permanently revoke your right to use the anonymizer.

WG just posted a video explaining how it works and where it works. As in it can hide XVM stats, it does randomize your name and hides your clan tag. As the last one is a bigger issue for some, and a bigger cause for focus. But don't work for those you start a dynamic platoon with.

 

Spoiler

 

 

Tho I hope the "random" name won't be to easy to spot. As in the video it had a _ and a number behind one as an example.  If they all have that. People might focus on those... because they have something to hide.

Sorry, but it will be very easy to do just that.

Taking the easy way out in Wargaming style once again. Instead of punishing those toxic players and just remove xvm (the stats part) from the game they come up with this halfwit idea that doesnt work.

From the examples I don't see how it'll be easy, seeing as the few examples I have seen already seem to have no obvious pattern to them and plenty of nicknames in XVM will show up without stats through not having enough games etc.

 

Plus if enough people do it, then there is strength in numbers, if half the team have anonymised names how is anyone going to get focused.

Will be interesting to see, if a large enough % of the playing population enable it the stats part of XVM may die off anyway.

I hope it picks your random name from a list of other players. I can't wait until it's my turn to be Daki. :great:

 

As for the whole unicum/arty thing ... :D

 

I accept that there's a minority of players who choose their targets based on XVM (including a large number of unicums, funnily enough) but most arty players shoot at the tanks they think RNG will let them hit. That will include the unicum guy who's pushing a ridge or corner and exposing his tank to arty fire. What's more likely than a new era of peace and good gamesmanship is a flood of accusations of players hacking the randomiser because "he wouldn't have shot me unless he knew who I am". :rolleyes:

Streamers are going to use it few times and then complain:

1. Team don't listen to me!

2. People are rude.

3. I don't get the best spot. Other tanks wont move for me!!

4. People are very toxic, they are treating me like any other WOT player.

 

For very good players getting XVM snipped I can understand how this will help though.

Well in the clip they said it was toxic because it allowed others to focus on good players, or see the name of a CC to focus on him. Nothing about good players trashing on bad because he is red. So it's made to protect QB then the lesser average Joe according to WG.
