WoT 1.7 Common Test – 2nd Iteration Patch Notes

Main Changes

Added the Anonymizer function

  • In the game client, an option was added that allows players to conceal their nicknames in battle. This option works in Random Battles (including Assault, Encounter Battle, and Grand Battle types), Frontline battles, Ranked Battles, as well as in some temporary events. This option will not work in Team Training, Bootcamp, on the Global Map, in Skirmishes and Advances, or tournaments.
  • A player who has enabled the option will be displayed as an unknown player to other participants of the battle (except for the members of your Platoon), which includes:
    • A unique name (that will change each battle) will be created and displayed instead of the player’s actual nickname.
    • If the player belongs to a clan, the clan tag and the clan emblem on the vehicle will not be displayed.
    • It will not be possible to receive additional information about the player in battle.
    • Badges of anonymized players will still be displayed.
  • Members of Platoons that were created both in the Garage and in battle will see only the real nicknames of each Platoon member.
  • The player continues to see their actual nickname (however, they can see their generated nickname too).
  • When the battle is over, the actual nicknames of all players will be displayed in Battle Results.

Please note this option cannot be used to violate Game Rules and will not affect the technical facilities of moderation. A player who conceals their name and violates Game Rules will not avoid punishment.

  1. How about adding option to hide nickname for enemies but show it to teammates?

    I don’t want to be focused but at the same time I want my teammates to see how big my e-penis is.

  2. idk… all the “arty is always focusing on me coz of me skillz” people will soon see it’s not their skill, it’s their shitty positioning that gets them aggro. this, or you have just another 2×3 arties game where 6 people click the crap out of 24 others and out of the gaming fun.

      1. with the anonymiser, people will still be able to identify CW reward tanks and focus on them (I know I will, I still want to win after all 😉 ).

        also, I’d propose the following addition to the anonymiser:
        the game should mark players who’re using xvm, so we can focus them :D. I hate game altering mods in multiplayer online games and I think they have no place in WoT. the game is unbalanced enough the way it is without xvm.

        IMO, it’s an important part of skill/experience acquired over the years that should help you identify dangerous enemies or strong allies and moving targets or AFK/0dmg/suiciders.

        my “pro” tip:
        – recognise a clan tag (eg KAZNA, EFE-X and such) => specialised tahnks and crew combined with heavy gold spam => focus on them
        – gamer tags ending on *_defender, *_hero, *_winner, *pl, … => probably as efficient as a cat walking across the keyboard => no priority targets

        😉

    1. I hope you know how wrong you are, because people that don’t care will continue like this update does not exist, those that care such as QB (for E-peen stats) need it though.

  3. when I play arty I always focus thin skinned TD-s (preferably premium ones),then comes OP heavy or reward tanks and on last place are targets of opportunity….so to me nothing will change

    1. For me, as a dedicated spg player, this change will leave me no choice other than quit playing. I use xvm to focus the best players because it’s essential to take them out to win. Sad move by W

      I think most spg players will focus the ones who’s anonymous anyway. I know i will if decide to stay.

  4. You guys don’t get focused because you are good….
    No.
    You get focused cause you stand in open!!! Arti does not give a damn about your “”skill””

    Arti wants what everyone want… Easy targets
    And guess what…
    Goood player make themselves NOT an easy target

    => math doesn’t lie
    Complain about arti… You are just bad

    Ps. And if you guy’s ran xvm… Lol, you would see those are mostly 300wn8 bots

    So much about your very legit complains coming from your imagination.

    Can’t wait the patch and hear aallll about how you never ever died again cause….MAGIC!!!!

    Pfff

    Apparently we need to bring back the 1 hit arti… So you know what’s pain!
    My Maus dealt with that crap
    I learned taking cover the hard way!
