Wow a vid from someone who likes the sound of his own voice. 

What a load of rubbish.

Thanks for posting it, it made me chuckle.

"Hey guys, I know there are at least 4 other threads about this, but I'm creating a new one, to share a video with you. Who is it from? Claus. Why is it important? Dunno, but some may like it, so here it is.

 

Next, I'll try finding some new exciting content by random people on the internet and create more threads about anything, worry not."

Is it really that?

 

Here, I'll send you some links from the front page alone. That should have been simple enough to find even if one's clueless about hot to use search features:

Note: I didn't even check all threads on both pages, just grabbed the ones with anonymizer in the title. Are those not enough to dump that video into?

And what is the problem, it's a new thing that is going to be added and players are saying that they don't like it

The problem is that you dumped a video and all you had to say about it all was "A video about the Anonymizer".

 

Do you expect people to listen to Claus' annoying voice for 30min just because? Did you watch it yourself? What did you think of it? Why should others watch it? What significantly different things has he said that justifies a whole thread about this video in particular? 

 

See? You're not even being constructive YOURSELF, at the very least, explain why you felt like sharing this video. I think if this is just "another video about this" then you could have used any other thread about it as well.

Things that doesn't make sense to Claus quite often makes sense to others...

The video says it all, I agree with most of the things he said, the Anonymizer doesn't make any sense

What "all" would that be? Because I won't go through 30min of that guy to find that out.

Don't bother, I've seen parts of it.

 

Claus argues that the nonymizer is stupid for making us anonymous, since by choosing a nick to begin with we wanted to be anonymous, which is a really stupid point to be making in this case. Then he rants on about something that I have said in the past, the catch-22 issue of better players promoting XVM-stats in the past as a tool now coming back to bite them in the rear, and the apparent irony that they themselves now want to be anonymous due to foucs etc. since too many people use the mod. Well duh, the value of the anonymizer isn't nullified because of some players that thought XVM-stats was a good thing in the past, that now have opened their eyes to the issue of being targeted, or ignored like the tomatoes haven been, because the mod is there so the issue isn't going away unless all the stats sites that XVM can pull numbers from are taken down...

 

So the easy and sensible solution for now is to implement the anonymizer. Claus can laugh as much as he wants about the irony of it all, or the hypocricy, but it will not take away the meaning behind the anonymizer feature. And that is where Claus misses the point.

FTFY

 

I've always been against XVM, and nobody I've directly discussed it with was ever able to explain how it does not give a clear advantage against other players. It should be considered a cheat mod, end of. No need for an anonymizer then.

Klaus' audience gets off on listening to him rant. Whether he gets the point or not he's just feeding them what they want to hear. It's all about them clicks!

which is why WG don’t just outright ban XVM or turn the access to the WG Server completely off blocking it, as this ‘half assed’ way of the anonymizer if enough of the player base turn it on it will in effect kill off XVM over time and WG can say it has nothing to do with them with at least half a straight face as it was the player base that killed it off all WG have done is give the players a choice!

  It’s called politics.

That is of course true and not the first time. When I started the game pretty soon everyone good at the game was telling players to get xvm because it would help getting better at the game. It was in Circon's modpack for quite some time and a lot more used it. Once too many got using it and they became target it had to be removed.

 

Same as with them reporting arty for no reason and getting them banned. Ohhh boy did they had fun and everybody should be doing that. But once it backfired and ther normal players started to return the favor it suddenly wasnt fun anymore and the report system was nullified.
