World of Tanks Update 1.7 will arrive on 10 December! This will be one of the emptiest updates ever in World of Tanks, feeling like a full update was dedicated just to the Anonymizer. Nonetheless, here’s a list of all changes coming with the update.
- Directives for crew members can now be purchased for credits only in the Consumables section of the Garage, as well as in the Service->Directives section of the Store.
- Directives for crew members will not be available for bonds any longer.
Added the Anonymizer functionality
- In the game client, added an option that allows players to conceal their nicknames in battle. 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 that this option cannot be used for violation of Game Rules and will not affect the technical facilities of moderation. A player who conceals their name and violates the Game Rules, will not avoid the punishment.
