This is awesome.  Now I won't even need XVM to know who the tomatoes are anymore.

haven't used XVM in years, nor do I even  bother to look at player names...there are other ways organic to WOT to ID who is potentially a decent player.

 

I think if you really want to optimize masking the op4 player is to not show any red tank until they are spotted....fog of war :)

What about removing XVM and all mods?  Just a thought, because then you wouldn't have this issue with people seeing your stats in game.  

 

 

Why are your trying to kill a fly with a howitzer?  I like my garage mods and my in game MOE tracker. :)

If they want to hide stats, why not just do that

Why the phony nick name

This will be used to bring in bots

As for harassment, who cares, these people know what they can do with themselves

Why not block the bullies, permanently

allot in the game forget that there are 14 other players on a team, individual win rate does not mean allot in random

unless you always play with the same players in toons and learn to play as a team

The General Idea of this is solid yet it's not been a carefully thought over . 1st When selecting this Anonymize feature a pre designed in game name with stats should be given that already has Stats with XVM. Say something average like 1432wn8 51.23% WR Clanless. This now looks like the average Joe Blow. This should blend into the team and prevent focus. Focus is a huge issue with tanks for particular players and often results in player bleed permanently. The other solution would be to limit arty to one per match or have an option to opt out of arty matches. Nothing is worse then being focused by 3 Cancer non stop to dead. I can't think of anything more toxic than being Perm Stunned, everything broken, all repairs used and just sitting broken watching the bombs drop until death. 

I agree that WG has some good ideas but really needs to read between the lines a lot further or we'll all be playing WT.

How about being circled by three wheelies, or three wheelies and a light tank while arty is hitting you?

So, artillery will simply focus the anonymous players (i.e. the players that don't show XVM stats in the player panels), because those vain enough to think they are too good to be hit by artillery will be the first to use this mechanic. You realize that this is WarGaming implementing this feature, right? They always mess things up somehow.

Or just do away with stats altogether. They really mean nothing. You're just one person playing with 29 other people. 29 different other people every match. Never playing with the same people on the same map in the same tanks. This makes any and all statistics worthless junk. Statistics only matter when all the variables are the same every time.

If the math of statistics and probabilities are too advanced for you to understand then just don't make the worthless, useless, nonsensical WoT statistics public. Only the individual person can see their own 'stats' and no one else nor can the individual see anyone else's 'stats'.

I'm just teasing.  Like I play arty that much.  I'm excited to see how this works though.  If I run a bot account like some do, I'll make sure it's ON so that folks won't see the bot's stats.  Should be good.  :P

I'm all for anything that hinders XVM in-game stats. 

Well you have no problem posting them here , in the forum's so why worry about hiding them I. The game??? 

Further, I've been focused to bits both in pubs and front lines and my " stats" are crap....so there's that.

I think you/others make more of this than there really is. Unless you play at back line and chai snipe your in the thick of things or trying to back door ..where arty likes to focus.

You all are putting Anonymizer in this game for several reasons and it's not what I'm paying for!

1) It hides the skilled guys from those who try to avoid them not gang up on them, they shouldn't be crying about getting ganged up on, if there that good!

2) It's not so much as to avoid them at all cost it's to keep them honest. I have an Idea where there are, and I play with more caution!

3) I'm not stupid and I'm not feeding your skilled players an easy target. I am a paying customer (MOST OF THEM ARE NOT)!!! I buy your Tanks, your Gold and your premium time for several years. Most of them don't, DO THEY?

It's given to them for there great knowledge of the game and knowing computers and how servers work they went to school for it! We didn't!!! 

This will not shut us up, it's not fair to an average player. If you can't fix MM, SEPERATE US! Don't pull this crap and try to make it sound like your helping us.  

4) I will not pay for that, and neither will a lot of other people. The best way to BATTLE,  IS KNOW YOUR ENEMY!!!

I think that said it all right there!

 

 

The biggest one! It's a cop out for you guys not to fix MM and people cant complain about it.

The best thing about this is that there will be a decrease in Chieftains and 279e’s in Random battles a long with a few other special tanks. The Anonymizer won’t hide what tank you are playing in and you can bet arty will be hunting for those special tanks to focus their love and attention on. I for one will not be using the Anonymizer, really doesn’t matter to me if people know my in-game name. I enjoy chatting with players when I recognize them in game as well.

Yes indeed. Clan reward tanks are still going to draw fire.

So the way this will is actually work, is different than what is advertised.  Players with low battle counts and subpar stats will end up with top clan tag suffixes to their randomly generated names.  And, Visa Versa.  Although this will cause a reprieve from xvm sniping, etc.. for the top players, the newbies be will ground to pumice like there is no tomorrow.

 

Example.
