it is a useful tool for improving your game, and identifying threats.

It's useful for fear mongering, causing dismay, hopelessness, overconfidence, or bullying.

Sometimes, it's better not to know.

What you do with the info is up to you...though I'd advise keeping most of it to yourself.

It doesn't give you license to run your mouth, but knowing which tanks to pressure and which ones to give more respect than usual is a great asset.

an ***hole is gonna be an ***hole regardless of the tools available; i would definitely say knowledge is your friend, and make use of whatever tools you can find.

But i will agree on the dismay; few things are as painful as seeing that 12% win chance(i am surprised how accurate those are, not 100% but it has about 80% success rate). I try to stay positive and say things like, "nice, nothing like a hard fought win", but, deep down, i know whats up lol.

When i first got it, i fell victim to overconfidence on the 80%+ win chance maps; driving through houses, and what not, for the lols.

I have a friend who uses it, and sometimes I wish they wouldn't tell me what the %'s are each time.

XVM is the thing that determines the worth of other players as human beings and displays it in the form of three numbers next to their names when you play World of Tanks. Everyone knows this is the truth, which is why those with poor numbers try to discredit it and complain about it. It also determines whether or not you get into heaven, get a loan for a car, get into that fancy nightclub via the VIP entrance, get accepted into the college you wanted to go to, find true love, die young, die old, die at all, or have hairy nipples.

The truth hurts, I know.


. . .  oh, and it adds OTM to your game or something like that.
inb4 a bunch of nubs stop reading after the first line and neg this post into oblivion because they mad

I dont think you can deny the usefulness of XVM sometimes, it allows you to be more adaptive in terms of your gameplay; however it can be very disheartening to see a 5% win chance. It requires instalation of dokan library http://dokan-dev.net/en/download/ in order to make the mod work.

I use it, but only as a measuring tool for how careful I need to be. If it says my win odds are at 45%, I know to be careful: At 80%, I'm equally careful, but more likely to just sit somewhere and wait for enemies to come to me instead of attack their defences.

Player ratings are rubbish and I don't pay attention to them. Except for my own. Seeing that rating going up motivates me to keep doing my best.

I made the mistake of being overconfident in the face of 'poor' players. An arty with 500 efficiency and 45% win can still be painful. I think you soon learn that some peoples bad ratings are earned from their lack of situational awareness and tactics as opposed to their inability to kill/damage tanks.

Did you run the xvm proxy? this is the application in the world of tanks file. You have to run this every time you open tanks, it automatically runs the wot client.

Arty is the only tank type I saw consistently outperform their bad stats. Arty is so RNG based that for some players that actually is a benefit.
