In FAF galactic war player names are replaced with generic character names from the single player campaign of Supreme Commander, could we do something similar for planetwars?

So he doesn't get scared. The nice part about the current system is that you can see important/nice battles because they contain many faction officials/strong players. With this change, planet wars battles would be reduced to a number and a map in the lobby.

From a player's perspective I would find it more interesting not to know who I'm fighting. Because right now many battles are not being taken seriously simply because of the high skill disparity. Who wants to even bother playing a game with 1%win chance?

Sounds like a good idea, but it is somewhat difficult to guarantee technically.

Even high skill disparity games have the secondary objectives!

Hiding with decent level of security is technically possible. But somewhat risky beofre steam release.

its a random name every game, you dont know until you scout their playstyle

could also reveal the names and call the battles "5th Attack of X" after every "season"
