im guessing you wont, unless each client is told the names behind the "fake" names, and then that would make it rather worthless once a mod is made to circumvent it....

 

I guess the "fake" anonymizer names aren't included in the after battle results? (have not played on the test server yet)

Well, do you have something to hide? Personally I don't care if anyone sees my stats or not. Nor do I feel "everyone" focuses on me. So I'm not gonna use it. I suspect many will here tho going by the reactions to it. But some of us still won't care. And if they can still see me and I can't see them, that works too if they want to wave at me.

Blacklist 'm all?

 

Wonder if those on your friends list can still see your true ID or also the fake one...

There is a video out explaining it. It basically only works during the battle in some modes. And in the score screen it will show the real name again. It looks like you won't see it either, but you can see your fake name if you hover over your name in the side panel.

Post-battle results will still show the real nicknames. Maybe the forumite-mod can be modified to give you a notification in the garage?

I do wonder how this will go. for those that don't cover themselves up (I probably wont either) will they get focused more because others can see them, or will the rest of us get a respite as everyone shoot the hidden people?

could be interesting to see what happens

Oh I won't be using it, but I know some people will.

 

My only fun in game half the time is hunting for names of people I recognise :playing:

 

Also, my biggest worry...If I don't use it.

Turtle is going to use it and get so many forumite kills...HOW WILL WE KNOW WHERE TO HIDE?! :confused:

He'll be a ninja turtle - you won't know he's claimed your name until after the battle.

It is best for me NOT to use it. Once they see my stats, nobody will waste ammo on me :teethhappy:

I wont be using it. It would be a rather stupid thing if I do. I never get focussed now so no point in hising my name for that. But when I do, the people using XVM, who can still see who uses the anonimizer, cant see who I am. I could be a unicum so I will only attract more fore to me than without using it.

 

The only people gaining something from me using it will be the unicums because I might attract some fire that otherwise would have gone to them. Everyone below blue stats should never use this. It will only make the game harder for you.

I wont be using it, Pointless feature tbh. People will just focus those who are anonymous anyway, as they are clearly hiding something

I think I will buy back all my tier 10 arties and focus everyone using the anonimizer for a month.

Lack of ability to spot forumites is ufortunate, but I hope this will see widespread use to underline the utter muppetry that the devs of XVM-stats have shown. I'm going to use it out of principle and nothing else.

If it gets a representative use in the playerbase it will be totally stupid to focus anonymous players as they are more likely than not a bad player, effectively making you spend time and effort on the least threat on the enemy team...

But that is stupid. You want everybody to get more attention so the unicums can have a better gaming experience ???
