I have never quite grasped this concept, I assume it was designed for the better players to hide themselves from excessive attention? I have never used and never will, whenever I have been mistreated in this or any other game, it was because of my own behaviour or that of another player, not my username.

Personally don't see the point in the anonomizer thingy I never look and see who's on each team. Maybe if you use XVM, which I don't, with all the colours of the rainbow you can maybe make some predetermined assumptions. But I never make predetermined assumptions I just let the battle unfold. Lazy, maybe, but I just treat this game as it should be, a bit of fun.

I use it and its a great feature in my opinion.
I don't use ingame stats and it breaks the ingame stats for anyone who uses it by not showing anything for anonym players.
It surely helps on getting rid of stats based attention and i have seen plenty of bad/average joes use it which helps even more with blending in.
Imo its a feature that should have been enabled by default with the option to disable it.

I use it otherwise I just get pounded by arty or yoloed for no reason. It should have been set to automatically on for all people with the option to turn it off not the way it is now.

I use it because I have Dark Green XVM but I often play like an utter pudding and don't want people pinning their hopes on me.

It's a half measure in place as a placebo to calm the XVM complaints.

Soon, the situation will invert and only anonymized players will get focused and yelled at.

I never used it and I never will.

 

And as a frequent arty player I don't target unicums/anonimized players. I look at my minimap and support where it is needed.

 

I do focus on clanmates/forumites though ;)

I use it solely because it clutters the mind of anyone using XVM stats. If we all did the same, that aspect of the game would quickly die. Even now, in a game where, say, five players are anonymised, you can smell the panic.

Do you shoot gold with arty as well?

Sadly it never fitted my in-game budget.

The anonymizer is pointless unless everyone's anonymized.

 

XVM users will just focus anonymized players if they can't see any good players.

 

It's flawed and shows just how toxic XVM is.

Dear qpranger

The anonymizer was introduced to help high WR players from being targetted, i have no need to explain more:hiding:
