Request: AssistSquadLeader command feature.
One of the greatest commands in game, is the Assist command. It has one major flaw though. It has to be used with a specific player name.
If I run this command while Bob is around I will pickup his target. (If Bob has a target.) This part is important. I will stay on my target if Bob doesn't have a target. The problem is that I might not play with Bob all the time. So I have to reassign my keybind every time I play, to pickup the target caller's target. What we need is something a bit more useful. We need an AssistSquadLeader command.
We have the ability to assign a squad leader in a team but this is a meaningless assignment, once you reach rank 50. Why not add an AssistSquadLeader command for teams to use. This way the team leader can assign a target caller and everyone can Assist that person's target. The team leader can also change who the target caller is during a fight. Say the Squad Leader dies and cannot call targets anymore.
This can be a great feature for new players to be able to follow targets.
We need an /AssistSquadLeader feature.
couldn't have said it better myself
This is most likely not the same thing but usually you get your fleet leader to call the targets using the /bind t team "Focus fire on: $Target" bind. This tells team members to focus fire on a single target.
Now looking at your situation. If person A says to team to target their target. With the assist command they could just go /Assist A.
Or in a keybind /bind t "Assist A"
Now if you don't go with person A, then you have to reset your keybind to person B.
With an /AssistSquadleader all you need to do is set the target caller as the squadleader, and then have a keybind: /bind t "AssistSquadLeader"
Now when you run with a different group in an STF, all you need to do is press T and everyone will shoot at the same target.
