Yes there should be some sort of option for your name to be invisible to XVM...

 

Correct,  it would be more fair for all of the players to be able to hide their statistics if they so wish.

 

Also your posts would stop getting flamed if you Stopped typing like this...

 

I do that because I absolutely think that it is beautiful, and I do not want to stop it.

Developing YOURSELF is very important.

I play arty! I could give a rats [edited]about stats, 3 things i look for in this order. (1) Open target. (2) open target (3) open target. If i can get a lock on any tank i will take the shot. 

at 30 plus seconds reload and some up to 10 seconds to full sight in. If your in the open and i can get the shot i will take it. period. 

 

Some stat mongers think arty just hunts for the huge stat tanks. your so wrong! takes to long to cycle an arty to piss around with that.  Targets of opportunity are what they are looking for.

If anyone with blacked out stats appears that means one of two things. Either 1) they're very good and need to be targeted or 2) they're very bad and will be easily taken out. Either way blacking out your stats just tells everyone to focus you down early. I can appreciate your frustration but I don't think this will work.

Do you drown / shoot at the wall,

when the enemies have cleared the tanks from your team and are coming for you?

 

Do you?

I watched a video on youtube about the topic. I can't remember who made the video, but they said that WarGaming should change the random battles to fog war. Player names and clan would be hidden, only the tank name and which tanks are platooned could be seen. Also something would have to be done about XVM, allowing players to block their name from XVM would be nice, not allowing the mod anymore would be even better.
I don't personally get focused because I am bad, but it does happen to people that are very good and it must suck not being able to play without being yoloed by autoloaders or hunted by arty the whole game.

I guess that it makes some sense.

I guess that I have to suffer from being the '' prize ''

 

 

But the '' fog of war '' could be the thing.

 

'' Stats '' should just not be there in the first place.

Yes '' fog of war '' would help so much.

It has nothing but positive effects and makes the game play fresh and interesting.

My Greetings.

 

I will now proceed to tell what I think about certain elements of this game ( regardless of one being 3rd party, but highly used )

I think that you SHOULD be allowed to ' block ' your statistics ( XVM ) from being visible for the enemy team.

( From their site options )

 

Why?

 

Oh, it is not very nice to be the one that every one wants to kill as soon as possible.

You have to be so very careful with your play and make high quality decisions,

my largest issue being artillery players running XVM,  or group of ' yoloers '

( more easily neutralized than artillery naturally )

 

Also, enemies tend to be so much more careful and scared if they are facing high level player, I do not like this,

it gives advantage when you see what kind of player you are facing.

 

I also want to be able to block my user name from the enemies ( I want it to be only visible when I have destroyed enemy player )

I want to be unknown and I want my enemies to only see who I was when I have destroyed them

 

This is a bit similar to the '' fog of war '' they run with the CW.

 

Random battles would be so much more exciting with something like this.

 

If I never get chance to hide who I am I will gladly do it.

I want to be able to play and hunt in peace.

 

 

As a player I have the need to remain unknown and hidden.

I think that this would make game more reasonable and even help the artillery hate situation,

To be able to hide yourself if you feel so. ( from the enemy list )

 

 

Gasai.

 

Totally agree with your assessment of this mod, when does a platoon have the actual enemy's  201 file before a battle, never. Also in my army we were more like bait....

Should be allowed to block them period. You are able to on World of Warships. Why not WoT?

Exactly.

You get the idea.

I hope to see something that helps WoT as well with this,

as soon as possible.

 

I do not know anything about the WoW, it is bit too slow for me and I love tanks.

Especially TD's ( low profile ) So yeah.

 

But You literally should not be able to know who your enemy is before you see him/her.

No they are not.

Personalization mods are amazing, and much welcomed.

 

That is important for me.

I do not believe that you understand what this post truly means.

I am literally sick to being '' XVM sniped '' in the battle I want to just be alone.

 

 

That would be fair.

I do not think that there is counter argument for the '' fog of war '' in pubs.

 

Or is there, you tell me.

OP, have you ever played competitive sports?

 

It is absolutely normal and completely expected to have the opposition focus on the best players on your team.  Likewise, your team focuses on their best players.  We had an acronym - LTD (Leave the Dork).  We didn't flood over the top to cover a guy lobbing a 3-pt shot that had no chance of making it.  We would jump a shot attempt by a dead-eye shooter though.  In some cases we would even allow a Dork to run right down the middle of the key.  Maybe he was a yoloing dude 5 feet tall who couldn't make a shot if the God proclaimed it on Christmas.  Two guys would be shadowing Lebron rather than collapsing on the dork.

 

As a Tomato in WoT I have first hand knowledge that Green, Blue, and Purple People Eaters seem to enjoy various Tomato based delicacies.  Why can't I enjoy supporting a mid-range player's attempt to neutralize a high caliber competitor?  Why should I focus my energies on enemies of little concern?

Be ' focussed ' for 3 years and you know what I mean.

It is not fair and balanced for the players when some one is being ' focussed '

so much more than other players in the team.

 

It is just wrong.

Is this really a problem in Tier 7 and higher?

 

I looked at your Noobmeter stats and I see you are not a Seal Clubber.  You play competitively at the higher tiers.  Do you really get a bunch of Tomatoes trying to focus kill you.  Personally, as a Tomato, I only note the better players and what tanks they are in prior to battle.  I will focus on them if supported and if I happen to be in the area - but, I am in Tier 4/5 battles not Tier 7+.  Isn't almost everyone in Tier 7+ battles at least a Green player?

 

Also, you generally play Tank Destroyers.  I will focus a Tank Destroyer even if its commander is not Rommel.  Their big guns hurt little old me.  They generally are out of spotting range.  They are not maneuverable.  And, their armor is generally not very tough.  I will chew on them before I bounce some shells off a heavy any day.

 

By the way, when I was playing basketball I was focused on.  If, however, you do slum to Tiers 4/5 and come across me than by all means focus on me the Tomato.  You will help my Win% - which right now is my main concern.

I am best with my dearest vehicle ( The E-25 ) and I play her because I love her.

I do not deserve to get punished because I love that vehicle and it is like I am myself.

 

And I love TD's indeed with high personal reasons.

 

It is just not correct that your enemies know who you are, right away.
