You can't.  Though I'd caution against thinking WN8 is to solely to blame.  People focus clam tags, specific tanks, and just going to powerful positions invites a lot of income fire. 

 

 

Edit: there is the "anonymizer" that's supposedly coming, but it's not a stat hide, just an in match rando name that others see and will prevent XVM from pulling stats on that player.

 

Ever since all chat died, we really should only see tank names on the enemy team and nothing more.

 

 

Edit II: I dunno what your wn8 is, rough guess based on PR probably puts it into 1600-1800 range, which might bring some focus but I don't think anything noticeable.

I start with shot #1 at CB'ing. 

2nd-5th is on heavies/assault TD's.

all shot after that are CB, heavies, TD's, meds, lites, wheelies, anything lit up as the red team, a moving bush, your sister. 

It doesnt matter to me your stats, I cant sit and decide who is going to get this much attention, I have to work from the spotted tanks.

 

My advice to you is to not get spotted until your flank is fully engaged then you start in.

Or hide next to arty and shoot.

Your 1660 WN8 shouldn't be all that attractive to arty, in my opinion.

Your decent stats might have a little to do with it. But the clan tag you have has A LOT more to do with it.

I agree with Tolos on this.  It's the clan tags.  If your that worried about them?  I'd ditch the clan and find another or I'd just continue to put up with it.  Oh BTW, there are a couple more clans that will still get you singled out as well.  Best to you on this.:trollface:

Most likely it has to do with XVM and those arty users who have it, if it has nothing to do with anything else.

With the number of xvm users, and given not all xvm users xvm snipe. 
 

I doubt much of the attention arty is giving you, has much to do with xvm. But not saying it has zero to do other it, as xvm sniping does happen. 
 

Also doubt clan tags would add much either, give most players are casual players.

I do not see him claiming to be xvm sniped due to his WN8.

At the moment there is nothing you can do to minimise it.

 

WG has stated they are working on an option in the setting where you will give you a randomly generated name each game, and it will block XVM from accessing your profile, and only in the game results will it show who you are.

 

You'll just have to wait for that to come into effect, I know I am.

Your positioning is going to make you more of a target than anything.
