    "Streamer mode now anonymizes your name for other players"

    This absolutely ruins the game for me. One of the main reasons I play is to hopefully get into lobbies with good people/streamers. Now I have 0 chance of knowing it's them. Such a stupid - stupid addition.

    Not one to ever post on forums but I strongly believe this should be rolled back.

    Will not be buying anymore V-bucks.

    It could be due to some people killing a streamer then going to his/her channel and talking trash.

      Will streamer mode come to mobile? Because there is bad names that uses bad words

      didn't realize they only made the games for streamers. Guess you are saying the other 95% of the players don't matter and should play something else? Streamers take enough of the average user's and viewer's money to suck it up when little kids "talk trash" to them.

    It seems like a bizarre choice. I've seen videos of kids who are so pleased to have eliminated Ninja, fairly.
    This takes those moments away from the community. I don't support the change. Streamers need only block the server code on their stream, as the prior streamer mode worked fine.

    The problem this presents is that many more players will start using it, not just streamers. What then separates them from a bot/AI?

    You should be able to see their name, ive killed quite a few streamers with it on so unless they have changed anything it should still be the same.

    If your sole reason is to play with Streamers/youtubers then you live and play a very sorry existence. You should play games because you enjoy them and play with people you find welcoming, not because you get to play with popular people because it pretty much doesnt get you anywhere. I get the aspect of playing with people you watch is neat, but take into consideration that they have THOUSANDS of people trying to ruin their fun by stream sniping. Having a 2vs8 with a bunch of stream snipers sucks, and ruins the fun of the game.

      It does ruin the game when you have 50-60 people with that tag. And none of them actually stream. I don't stream snipe. I barely watch streams. But it is bullshet.

    Lmao! Please just leave the game then. If you don't understand why this is necessary then you need to focus on education over video games for a bit.

        While I see the benefits of streamer mode, I also think that it is kind of weird that it is possible to be "anonymous" in a game where you don't use your real name anyway.

        The problem I see is that people can cheat now and you will not be able to look them up and check their stats etc.

        Also, I don't really think that it prevents stream sniping. If people are determined to kill a streamer, they can still easily find them just watching the stream at the same time.

        Overall, I think that streamer mode should be changed or disabled

          I cant believe that this isnt a Problem for Microsoft & Sony, because you can't report Players now over the System itself, if they are anons..
          What another wonderful stupid Change of the Game...

          And btw. why are Streamers handled like Platin,
          are they any better Players or Humans compared to casual Players?
          No, its just Advertise for EPIC and Money in the End...
          Its their own Problem if they run Streams and getting trolled for that.

          For me now, its just a 2-Classes Community.
          Why not split it one more times into poor & rich Players compared to the Purchases... or Black & White... or... really funk it, Epic...

          I just hate this Change & it shows me again how EPIC this Game will 'fail' in the Future.

            You just answered your own question. Streamers bring more money and players to epic.

              A little late to reply to this, but I believe you can still see their name when reviewing replays. It should only make them anonymous during the live game itself.

                This new update to streamer mode is trash. Now the feeling you get after realizing you just fought a famous player is gone.

                  So you are a stream sniper who ruins the experience for streamers and is stopping playing because they are trying to stop getting rushed by 40 people at once using streamer mode?
                  THANK YOU for leaving the game. No game/ game dev would want any stream sniper playing their game.
