Isn't a thing, Like really, ppl just use xvm to snipe you.   What are you thinking.. 

Next thing you know MM is against you, your RNG is rigged. You didn't hit last weeks shots today. 

The real problem here today is, Arty.. I hate arty, arty you can suck me off. Lol 

Like just leave me alone for one minute and I won't make a post about you..   You hit like a heavy and reload like a light tank..  I swear to WG that tank is ONLY accurate when i'm not playing it..

Congrats to all you players today.. Hope your battles went well.      BeanHoleBandit.

If you see me on the battliefield leave me alone.. Let me do some dmg please.. lol

XVM sniping is a thing.

 

It's common knowledge some people hold their shots/focus their fire on better players over others, even sometimes not shooting at other tanks, to specifically target someone else.

XVM sniping is a myth.

What makes you think it isn't real? It's blatantly obvious when you see it on streams, for example. You probably don't think it's real because no one has singled you out.

I've XVM sniped loads of times, and when arty platoons were a thing, me and my friends did things that should have been outlawed.  Seriously, it is a thing.

I just watched Overlord Prime's latest stream and he was being xvm sniped.

Why would someone NOT try to take out the other team's best players? The goal is to win. odds of winning go up if the other team's best players are gone.

 

What, am I supposed to let the other team's better players just run roughshod? If you're a pretty colored player, you got that way being focused. You'll live.

The only people who dont think XVM sniping exists are people not good enough to get XVM sniped.

Play on a purple account for a week, you'll be taking your words back before you could even get to the end of said week.

Every time I see a golden X next to an SPG on the other team I can already feel my blood pressure rising.

What makes more logical sense? Holding a shot and risking your own HP and DPM to get one shot off at a purple who knows you're trying to shoot him and thus is making it as hard as possible for you to damage him, or the orange player next to him herpaderping in the open with his turret side on to you? 

 

Purples die like any other with no support. Spending the entire game wasting your DPM or even your tank yoloing to try and kill a purple player more often than not hurts your chances of winning. If you cant shoot the purple, kill off his team. He cant win when its 1v5.

​I'm not saying I'd never shoot another tank other than their best player. but given the opportunity, and all things being equal, shoot the pretty colored guy.

If you haven't dropped your tags, you shouldn't complain.

MAHOU, YOUJO, -G-, ADOBE, CHAI, CLAWS (bluenicums wanabe purples), etc.

​These are quite identifiable. Whether I'm using XVM or not, I scan both teams to see who I can rely on & who I should focus on. If you happen to be in a big clan or have a pretty shade of purple, I will hold my shot for you.

 

****Edit: One can learn a few clan tags in the time it takes to download & install XVM.

Overall is is just unfair allowing a third party MOD to paint a target on your back, the game is supposed to reward you for learning and getting better, you are supposed to get a bigger proportion of fun games if you know what you are doing but XVM just takes some of them away by making Arty keep you behind cover the whole game or people YOLO you
It doesn't increase difficulty as some say, you get better so the game gets harder to be fun right ? Not really you don't get different opponents to challenge you you just get all the fire if you poke anywhere and Artillery following you the whole game, that isn't fun
People often blame purples for camping or playng second line without acknowledging the fact that they just can't afford to be a part of the group because although not alone they take all the shots

So what you're saying is if you want to be able to play normally you're not allowed to be in a top clan?

 

I mean, its not like XVM paints you purple even if you are tagless...
