SHUT UP. THE ONLY MOD I RUN IS THE ONE TO AUTO RETURN CREW AND AUTO MOVE EQUIPMENT. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THAT, YOU'RE DUMB FOR WASTING YOUR TIME DOING IT MANUALLY. IM LAZY AND SO ARE YOU.

I dont know if I've had my own feelings about xvm articulated better than what lemming just described.  its just such a garbage mod that really has almost no redeeming value.  I play vanilla by choice and don't have a problem with people who do run mods, but xvm is, as lemming highlighted so well, a toxic mod and should be banned.

I stopped using XVM years ago and found my enjoyment levels rose significantly.  I would concur with LemmingRush's observations.

I run XVM for 1 main reason. I use it to find the better players in the Rando PUB games I play in and shadow them, from a distance. 

I've learned a great deal about where better players go, sometimes why they go there and if I'm careful, I can assist them in taking down enemy tanks, without crowding them. 

 

I also like knowing my damage output Avg for games/tanks. That's the general measure I use to determine how well I'm doing. Tracking WR, good or bad, isn't really my jam.

When I switched to vanilla I became much happier.  Who cares what the other fellas rating is.  Mine is the only rating that matters to me.

The quote is from Lemming Rush.  He never uses mods at all.  I respect that.  I also use mods, mainly for some cosmetics and mini-map appearance, but mostly so I can track how I'm doing.  I went from a 2200 PR to nearing 5,000 in just over a year.  I did it by watching how I was performing and in what vehicles.  I'm not a "stat padder", I just wanted to improve my game play, and by constantly watching my WN8 (which equates to damage done) it improved my play style and now I'm an active contributor, instead of a red potato.  I actually have 2 clients installed.  One with mods, and one vanilla for tournament play.  I find I use them both equally and with no real change in my play style.

I understand why Lemming doesn't use mods, and why he thinks XVM is detrimental to overall play.  I thing in a lot of cases I agree with him.  But not in ALL cases.  Ultimately, if you are a toxic a$$hole because you can see people's stats, it's not XVM's fault.  You are most likely an a$$ in other aspects of your life too.

I will never have a problem with mods, as long as they are for cosmetic and convenience.  As soon as you start using them for an advantage, you crossed a line.

+1 I agree. For me, player stats are just numbers and nice colors to decorate the screen :D It does not affect me whatsoever. I react to the team and the enemy team the same way. If I see someone doing a smart push and I can get into a position to help, I will. And of course I use mods to help with my laziness.

Great video.  Everybody should be required to watch it before using (the stats portion of) XVM.  I always laugh when I see unicums here say they "need" XVM in order to play well.  I respect the really good players who don't use any mods, especially XVM.  I have even higher respect for them when they admit the negative affects XVM has on them, like LemmingRush does in this video.

This is a bad reason to use XVM, IMO.  Like LemmingRush says... a purple player in a red position makes them a tomato and vice versa.  I see blue/purple players throw games all the time.  Don't rely on them just because of their color.  Judge players based on their position.  If you're not sure how to make that judgement, then watch known, good players (e.g. LemmingRush and Zeven) play.

Who gives a flying [edited]what he thinks? Is he your god? Do you suck his [edited]too? Stop caring what other people think, test the mod for yourself, if you like it keep it, or remove it if you don't, it's that simple. "ooh he's a super unicum so I must do what he says". Dude plays mostly just a handful of meta mediums, yes he's good at them, doesn't mean his word is gospel.

When 9.16 came out I dropped pretty much every mod that I had been using because I was going to play bronze league which must be played vanilla.  Turned out I didn't have the time to commit to playing league but I found that my actual play IMPROVED when I uninstalled XVM...and most of the in game mods I was running at that time were just fluff anyway.  Now in game the only mods I run are one that sets my default sniper mode zoom (I use shift in and out of sniper mode) to 4x and one that changes the contour icons so that I can tell the tanks a bit easier than the vanilla client.  Nothing else in game.  In garage the crew auto move and equipment auto move mods are SO nice and I also run session stats.  Why they can't put those in the vanilla client I'll never know.

I love his vids, but he always has to repeat over and over and over that hes a unicum and one of the best players on NA. OK... he is. But there is this thing called modesty and not needing to throw well known facts into peoples faces repeatedly.

There is no in between... you either use mods or you don't.   Even if you use a mod for auto return... you're still using a mod.  There is no way you can claim you are running the vanilla client if you run a single mod whether for the garage or in game.

that's cuz he farms wn8 and thinks people will take him more seriously. Look at his noobmeter, like the top 20 are all meta mediums
