@tydygunn: "While I agree to your positives, adding a toggle would defeat the purpose of not showing the opponent's name in the first place. Trolls and elitist jerks would keep theirs toggled and still bug you."Not if it's a toggle on your end: i.e. - if you turn yours off, no one sees your name. The toggle could be letting other people see your name. That way each person would be able to be anonymous or have their name shown as they wished. And I just saw in your second paragraph that you saw that that could be the case, but whatever, I'm leaving this in my comment.Like people said, this sort of boggles my mind. This is an MMO and is supposed to be social, but they're not going to let you see who you're playing with? I know it seems like a little thing, but that just puts a sour taste in my mouth. "The shame of defeat" being a barrier to entry? I have never, ever heard anyone say that. I know people who love PVP, who hate PVP, who will only PVP when I bug them to do so with me and who are indifferent but don't PVP, and not a single one has said they didn't want to play because they might lose. And after losses, no one's said, "I'm so ashamed, I can't PVP any more." They might complain or be frustrated, but even the people I know who get really nervous PVPing aren't worried about what people will think if they lose. The entire idea doesn't make much sense to me.
