New Pin target option spells trouble for KDF
 
So apparently, because of the whole Pet/Mine Targeting thing, and the new Pin target option, Cloakers can't hide any more... :(

Sorry to the KDF/Cloakers that learns of this the hard way. :(

What? Pin Targets?!?!?

I used to PVP anytime I possibly can. Until Season 6 shot PVP in the knee. It's abysmal now.

Haven't touched it since december. It seems to have gotten worse according to these forums. :mad:

I can now see where cloaked ships are when I have them pinned to my HUD? LMAO.

Damn, that's even better than the emission seeking torpedo. Thanks Cryptic.

I am curiuos as well.....

Is it the Focus setting I noticed in the Drop down menu when one mouses over target?

Yep, noticed that when doing KASE. Someones little deltaflyer/slaver pets would always circle above Donatra when she cloaked.
Jumped into PvP and noticed the same thing. So...whats the point of cloaks anymore if all you have to do is follow your pets?
Makes the cloak rather pointless now, and screws the Klingons at the same time..:(

Ah. Wasn't the pets following and targeting claoked vessel an old bugg that got fixed once before? Maybe it just resurfaced with this PIN thingy now in play?

This is an old bug that has never been fixed... pets follow cloakers.

What Teapower is talking about... is it is now 10x worse...

On your target you will now notice a little pin icon on the side... if you click that you have pinned your target and you can switch targets and quickly switch back to the pinned target.

You can now use this new very cool thing... to exploit the old bug and target cloaked ships....

It is pretty dumb.
