WoWS's "distinctive insignia"! Something nobody had ever asked for and the addition came as a surprise (IIRC). I don't like it, so I just leave it at default, doubles as misinformation too.

 

...imagine the same thing but affecting core gameplay rather than cosmetics...that's what we are having right now...:kamikaze:

I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

What's this "distinctive insignia" you speak about? I haven't played Warships in almost a year

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Go to WoWS forums, enter some thread, look to your left. Those are distinctive insignias.

 

...I've filtered them out via adblock...

It's a feature they added in.  Kind of like Battlefield.  Personalized patches that you can select, either from stock or by XXX damage over 100+ matches.  When you sink someone, your name and patch is displayed on their screen.  When you're sunk, you'll see the person who sunk you patch. 

 

Mod out there to remove it, I just run that.

Hm. What was the problem with it? It seems harmless enough

This happens:

 

Spoiler

 

Some call it "taunt screen", some thinks that it is not becoming of what good sportsmanship is, while some complains about it being in the way of postmortem killshots and other screenshotting opportunities.

 

Nobody asked for it, and WG themselves wouldn't even include the turn-off option, leaving it to modifications to disable it, which requires updating as the game updates.
