1) It works in assault and encounter.

 

2) It doesn't require premium account. You should make it work only 50% of the times without premium account.

Should those who have the ability to spend money get an in-game advantage?

@OP - Your "flaws" aren't flaws, you're just being cheeky.

No, but it was worse in the past when premium ammo was only available for gold. There also seem to be a drought in the realm of particularly strong premium tanks for sale, so some aspects are definitely moving in the right direction when it comes to fairness.

 

Then there is of course the issue of the most skilled being able to get their hands on the most broken tanks, tanks that put the Defender to shame.

They said in the video it won't work in the tutorial. So the bots can still see it's you.

The only issue is that it's not on by default, this will undermine the functionality since it will be easier to pick out the people that *ARE* using it.

It should not be by default. I got a nick name and a clan tag and want to show that proudly. People want to hide their stat? Is fine to me as soon as I'm not forced too.

You wouldn’t be forced to do anymore the tick a box that switches it off.

Am I to understand that this.... "feature" only makes a players user name anonymous during battles and nothing more?

But why setting it as default? It mess up with friend recognizing in example. Not everyone have problem with stat and idiots would still be around, anonimizer or not. It should be the last resource for those that are focussed or bullied, not the standard.

That is exactly how it works, at least from WG video.

It would mess up nothing more than spending ten seconds to switch it off.

Yes this was my understanding of the vid too... though it did like to add a whole lot of sweet nothings to talk about too lol. So this feature is therefore absolutely useless, ok, and that opinion is a fair shake I think. Why? Well, very obvious as you guys all know.

 

The main gripe players had with xvm was that it shows win rates and who's purple and who's red... the doomsday forecast you would read XVM worshippers blurt out at the start of battles "loss!! next bot team" or indeed when you read some player getting roasted during the countdown "IS-7 please uninstall game" etc so this feature changes none of that therefore there has been nothing gained.

 

If a player felt they were being focused on because they had good win rates or purple stats while on the opposite end of the scale a player believes they are getting abuse because they have bad win rates and red stats then.... all this will still be the case only now.... you don't see their name? lol ok so IF a player was being focused due to being a good player, now nobody see's their name and DOESN'T still focus them? Because some poor noob has his name changed he now DOESN'T get roasted as much? Come on WG nobody knows anyones names in this game much outside some streamers if you're into streaming so this does absolutely nothing and cheap cop out of delivering on what was supposed to be the year for removing XVM from the game once and for all.

Am I the only one who got OP's attempt at sarcasm/humour/call it what you like.

 

Clearly a reference to map blocking not working for Assault or Encounter and getting an extra choice if you pay.

 

I think someone has a chip on their shoulder.
