Now people know my feelings on this game, but when you are just behind a group of 4 other heavies , how is it that the 3 arties on the enemy team only had eyes for me, they hit me 6 times, can they only see me?, no way as we were all visible, computer operated arties ?, I have no doubts, but then I have always found it comical the way arty targets me, it happens in most games, but it is the speed at which they hit you the second you are spotted which gives the game away, I have used an arty and I find it impossible to hit someone that fast, by the time you have spotted the enemy and zoomed in on them it takes at least 5 seconds, a shame wot make it so obvious.

A rhetorical question, completely unrelated to your existential dilemma:

when you can choose a target, do you pick the easiest or the hardest available?

That is why you should use the anonymizer. I am far from purple but most of the time beeing the only not shitty red player in team - guess who got constantly clicker focused no matter what tank I was playing and what tier (top/bottom) in match I was playing?

 

Since the anonymizer was added the constant clicker focusing has almosted vanished - unless playing a slow, easy-to-hit arty-yummy tank like the Jap superheavies, T95, Tog II or something like that.

 

But also. Those 4 heavies in front of you - were they behind cover so you were the only one sitting wide open for the clickers to aim for?

I don't use the anonymizer and I only get focussed when I'm in a stupid location or in an important location/pushing. Amazingly arty goes for easier targets or chokepoints more than anything.

 

The only thing I sometimes notice with decent stats are lolrushes when I take a forward scouting or holding position. But 3 of theirs vs low tier me isn't the worst trade for my teams.

A: It could be that they only had a full aim on you vs the others, thus you picked a bad spot. B: Your gun or armor could have been seen as a bigger threat. As it's not rare for one to say "focus on the Maus" even before the battle starts. And C: Even if you are the weakest one, some tend to press "T" to show their target, and others follow. As the easiest kill is one gun less faster. As you would do in any tank in a group fight.

I never get focused by arty.

Because no one bothers tracer hunting nowadays.

Yes, bot-operated arty which ignores the usual aiming mechanics must be the obvious reason you got hit!

If you are the one getting hit first every time, what does that say about your playstyle?

 

(...)

 

If you change the way you play, maybe your results will change as well.

 

What do you think about that?

Cause that's the way I went from getting clicker focused almost every match I played - to getting focused less than 1 of 20 matches. Was really a day and night-experience to add the anonymizer, at least for me.

As far as i know does using the anonymiser mess with peoples xvm, this is reason enough to use it and i wish more would do so.

XVM users see you with no stats, which is as good a reason to focus you as any.

And it confuses people that use win chance to whine, if there's more anonymized players on their team, the win chance is so low. Had that a few times where I joined with 2 other good players who do use anonymizer and some bob goes to drown himself because "WG gave him a battle you cannot win again".

You could also wonder why you were focussed so much.

Its less the focus then more just messing with its usability. Doomsday prophets will suffer even more.

The win rate prediction was never any use.  XVM will still give them an unreliable number they don't understand.

True, but still no reason to not use anonymiser.

Have already seen plenty of below average people use it as well, the more the better id say.
