As it can be clearly seen via XVM who used anonymization option (grayed out names), do you now target people who use it?

If I have an opportunity to shoot an enemy tank, I take it. Doesn't matter if it's unicum, tomato, using the anon thingy or whatever else.

Also no I never used XVM.

If you target anonymized players you probably have a 50/50 change to be targeting a good player, but a 100% change of being an [edited].

Why?

Please don't tell me you believe you still get "targeted" even after anonymizer

Im not getting targeted, but if you go out of your way to target somebody else instead of shooting other easier targets, you are an [edited]. I dont think its that hard of a concept to grasp.

It depends. If i have 2 tanks infront of me 1 is easy target but is tier 8 and the other is tier 10 i will shoot the tier 10 so does that count as targetting?

I don't have XVM. Couldn't tell you and luckily for me, I'm not good enough to be singled out for the attention anyway.

Have installed new XVM today, it works as good as always not anomyzed players are shown in WN8 and anoymized are grey, but often there are only 2 -3 anymoyzed you can clearly see it by the tank that they are good.. :) So Arty players who used this before can exactly as good use this now... you also clearly see that the majority is Orange and Red players who dont use anomyzer.

 

One good thing is that XVM dont work if you anomyze yourself.

I definitely get focused still. But just as it was previously, it's still due to being spotted and in an aggressive location. I would like to claim though that I've been getting shot by arty less but I don't have anything else than feels to back that up. I still get the odd case of arty going after me when I'm bottom tier and hanging back so it definitely proves that it most likely wasn't all due to arty before anonymizer.

I play mainly glass canons and use XVM, I target those who get within my crosshairs.

xvm I use to determine how aggressive my gameplay can be.

Of course some players do because they have a brain !

 

If you use XVM its not rocket science to tell that one of the VERY few people who have white stats is probably hiding because they are blunicum/unicum.

 

Anonymizer is only doing the job half of the time because most players DONT use it so you are still easy to spot. XVM focusers are not stupid.

Thing is. 

 

Beta tester - focus. 

260 Badge - Focus 

Object 279e - Focus. 

907 Driver  - focus. 

T95/FV4201 - Focus. 

Arty - Focus. 

Stupid WV - Focus. 

 

Don't need XVM to focus a tank or the fact they are greyed out.....

Agree on all but the "beta tester" one. Does having a beta tester badge mark one as a good player? Or do they get singled out because they've been here from the early days of WoT?
