Anonymous games (for example for tournaments)
I would be nice to have as a feature for games the possibility of playing an anonymous game:
- Players get a random colour and the usernames are hidden during the game and revealed only after.
PS: Yes one could change username every time but... What if I want to keep my username? And have all the games show up in my stats

If you are getting blocked, that's for an entirely different reason (poor player, poor sportsmanship, or even a win-at-all-costs jerk who is no fun to play with)
That's not what I am talking about. If you're a 'jerk' then people will just not play with you.
At the begining of the game you see who is in the room obviously and then when you start it becomes anonymous. Would be a good feature for tournaments as well.
This is a great idea. Upvoted!
Don't see why the random color. People could still choose their preferred color, but their names be hidden.

Def hidden names, possibly random colour since some players often use the same colour (relevant for league/tourny play).
Would really really love this option.
I think this should really happen with ranked games
Anonymizer can fix this, World of Tanks is using it and everyone is happy with it (https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/1-7-anonymizer/).
It helps streamers not to be targeted, also helps famous youtubers to hide their in game name so that people won't target them for the whole game and ruin their experience.
It helps every other players besides content creators in the way that it hides their IGN so that if they match twice in a row, there wont be targeting the winner from previous game. And also people will not be toxic and wont be able to ruin other 2 players experience if the 2 players were in the previous game and had bad experience with each other.
Anonymizer should only work in the match, not when we want to check other players profile. The way it should work is that it should give you random name if you allow it in the settings BEFORE the match even starts.
