XVM is fine, you'll always have some poor sport that wants to suicide somehow.

XVM has useful features, no doubt about that, especially for players who are concerned about their own performance as XVM provides info on what the player should achieve to get that Mastery or what not.

 

But the stats of other players is one aspect that should go. It is information no player should have or at the very least, while in a match because its effects on the game is very evident. It is detrimental to the gameplay of WoT with just how much it affects player behaviour.

There's always going to be "meta" information in the game.  You can't escape it, because it's necessary for US to have meta-information so that we can just play the game.  Meta-information, for any that don't know, is information about the state of your playing piece in a game that goes beyond what you could personally know.  In THIS game, one person mashing keys, driving a virtual tank around that normally has anywhere from 2 to 7 crew to make it go, all of whom have only one or two special functions and whom operate independently from each other in that tank.

 

It's just you.  So meta-information is vital for play.  Mini-map?  Meta.  Hit indicator?  Meta.  Compass Arrow and real time updating on Map? Very Meta.

 

Being able to tap into this meta-stream with XVM is a side effect of having access to that as players.  If you want to have updates and any upgrades to how things look it's there for the Devs and, because of its nature, is accessible by enterprising computer savvy folks.

 

It would be nice, if we could all play in the spirit of the game such that no player of worth, integrity or even normal inclination would consider attempting to gain unfair advantage through technical means.  It's like taking steroids or performance enhancing drugs -- all that gain is artificial and therefore simply unworthy of our efforts.  It violates the concept of skill or talent.

 

Back here in reality, though, we know folks will be out there who will attempt to gain any advantage they can.  I don't know if mods are wrong in general.  I think we could use a more civil sense of fair and fun, though.

Wg should get rid of XVM, ban it. It is the bane of the game.
