Emblems make you a target

I've picked up a couple of the battleship emblems so far.

Since then I've noticed a lot more steel rain being focused my way than usual.  I think there are some people out there that once they see you have an emblem, call you out for focus fire.

Does anybody on the forum do this?  Just curious.

Lol really? Most people can't even read a map much less focues you becuase you have a shiny badge. It's probaly just coincidance. 

I for one could care less if they have a nice badge.... an emblem, perhaps but I won't seek out that one player to sink.

Where are emblems even displayed? Do you even see them before you're killed? None of the stat trackers even account for emblems.

You can scroll through the team display and see them.

Focusing on players with emblems is a complete waste of time and I have not yet seen any players singled out because they have them.  Any players identified for focus fire in game seem to be legitimate targets for the attention.  I think the OP is imagining something.

Didn't know that. I'm not sure it matters though, most people won't know each emblem unless they're running a specific one.

Uh no. I'm still looking for the turn it off setting or at the very least a null patch and insignia.

I will always have the default nonsense attached to my profile.

I don't bother looking at them.

I've considered running as low of ones as I can just to avoid this though..

I agree that it's highly unlikely that anyone gets focused because of their emblems, but I do think there are a lot more people running MM Monitor than there used to be (either that or there's just a lot of really bad target selection going on).  I can't tell you how often I get people actively ignoring better targets to keep trying to get at me.

Yes, bigger issue is that playing a BB gets your data and now badges put out to the opposing team. You will be seen so yes it might add to The opposing teams decision making.  Been enjoying playing DD lately...wonder why?

Better for the enemy to focus me than a potato that doesn't know how to survive.

At any time in battle, just hit <TAB> and hover mouse pointer over the names..  The badges show up.

No mods..  nothing special..  just using standard controls.

I'd be more concerned with seeing a top clan tag on the red team than somebody's emblem.

What he said.  Anyone can grind for those emblems; some people do nothing but these days.

Or OP is just wanting to toot his own horn about achieving an emblem.  I could care less about them.
