I think many members of clans would find this a useful feature.  Thoughts?

Why would it be useful to hide your clan tags?

Certain clans are known to have good players. Certain types of Pubbies like to focus particularly on shooting good players?

 

Granted, this purpose is defeated by anyone with XVM.

If someone is targeting you it's not just because of the clan tag, anyone smart enough to target a member of a good clan is running XVM, in which case you have a target on your back anyway.

Besides, I rather like having jokes about my clan every few matches.

Because certain clans are targeted as their members are known to be a threat.

  I can see where this would be useful to those players, they wouldn't receive some of the unnecessary abuse from pub players and it would cut down on potatoes following behind certain clan platoons in the belief that they will be saved by these clan members. It's sad when I see 3/4 of my team follow a -G- platoon all up in their ass. 

 

 But on the other hand for people like me who refuse to use XVM it would make it harder to recognize the players I need to focus on first.

Sounds reasonable.

The only point in hiding your clan tags is so your clan is not recognised.

 

If you can't carry the clan's name with honour, leave or find another clan?

Would be a pointless feature, I see the likes of Garbad, I don't need to see his clan tag to know hes good.

I target people because they are in my sights and I can damage them. Otherwise, I spot or get the hell out of there.

Same with Tolos... I see Tolos and I'm like: "Trolololos must die!"

 

 

 Granted, I play to much, I recognize most of the good players/members of clans after a while anyway.

Every tank in a battle is considered a threat... they should stop flattering themselves

I don't use XVM. Am I bad? some would say yes, but I dare so no.

As someone who was a member of the OP's clan for a while I can vouch that some clans do attract extra attention and not necessarily due to skill.

 

Edit: having said that, if you do happen to find yourself on the receiving end of negative attention due to your clan's reputation, you should either deal with it or find a different clan.

Well, on top of being targeted.  Some clans get harassed by people in games through chat, and other means.

 Can't take the heat, drop tags.

I like when people ask me if I'm simple for being in simp. Where would the bad jokes come from without my tag
