POPULAR

So a feature partly useful for handful of broadly known streamers.

For 99,99% of playerbase it's rather useless - I mean the point of nickname (or in game name) is to anonymize player's real identity. What's the point of anonymizing already anonymous nickname?

I'm sure the peiople who think they are being arty focussed will continue to think they are being arty focussed. :popcorn:

Well done WG, and if next step is to limit arty to max 1 / team and make arty mission optional without the need to do mission with honors to skip arty missions will be great.

Even if i am only average player, i felt arty players with xvm. If you are the only yellow in the team and rest of the team is red, arty players with xvm  will focus you.

This is one of the best improovement to the game along with: crew books, premium account improovment, ranked shielded levels and others.

Also please modify arty that in the moment it does 500 dmg or more to not stun any target.

FINALLY, after *ALL* these years!

 

Finally the dumb XVM focus will vanish and we'll be able to play without arty targeting you everywhere you go, even in a light tank on the other side of the map, just because you are blue-/unicum.

I already notice that on my recruit-accounts with worse stats (as I only play derp and odd/troll tanks on those) I hardly ever get focussed while on my mains, it's blatantly obvious.

 

Now let's hope that this thing will make usernames not easily picked out, as the example is clearly a bot name.

Also also, turn this anonymizer on by default, not off.

 

This all being said, it would have been easier and convenient to blatantly disable XVM related information within matches for everyone. That mod truly is a blight on this game, within matches, it's fine in the garage.

How hard is it to ban XVM Stats in battle?

Or any other in battle stats mod.

 

Anonymizing your name is a total waste of time.

I bet within a month the XVM mod people will find a way to display your true stats in game. Even if you are displaying a random name.

 

Total dumb idea that is useless to most players.

I don't think this nickname anonymizer solves an isuue with so called xvm focus (which I believe is a myth anyway).

BTW any arty player focusing an enemy just because he's good, bad, or average (sic!), is just a bad arty player.

Pointless. It's not the name itself, it's the XVM colour that people look for.

I like the fact that you could hide your stats from XVM users, but I don't think changing the username is as fun. I think many streamers (like Skill4ltu) like it when someone on their team says "I love you, Skill." This would take that away from them. However, I guess it's their own personal choice whether or not to use this feature.

And they will now be hidden, did you even watch the news?

If arty hits you, you get 3 in 1 promotion:

 

1. 500 - 1000 damage

2. stun for more than 10 seconds

3. 2-3 dead crew members

 

I see many games in open maps simply ruined from the start when in mm are 2 or 3 arties and heavies refuse to play normal positions

 

And all this for the merit to travel 50 m/ game and to play with 1 hand because "hard work" deserve to be rewarded.

Actually, they don't even claim to do that. So XVM colour may still me quite visible, just with a random name on it.
