"pinning" bug
 
is ruining a brels advantage. i will not get into how to do it, though most people seem to already know anyway. the b rels advantage is that when exposed to fire an enemy player needs to re target the brel, most times when not knowing what directioon or when they are coming makes this very difficult.

with the "pinning" exploit players simply pin the brel one time, and whilst in cloak still have them "targetted" so they have a target on the brel as soon as its exposed again, no matter where they pop up and they just spam attack. you know who is doing this because the nanosecond you decloak you are targetted with fomm and are being beamed.

needs to be fixed, as this ruins the b rels special ability of a super ambusher. that on top of breen nerf has severly hampered b rel gameplay.

Is that bug back or are they targeting pets that are targeting you?

/Only way to fix a bug is to acknowledge it.

that i cant say for sure about the /target pet.....but the insta fomm when popping outta stealth from anywhere, including behind them, is a good indicator pinning is being abused, happens with non pet classes as well

I don't believe this was ever fixed. NPCs always keep target lock unless another targetable option w/high enough threat gen causes them to switch. A not so good counter/work around is to carry a jam sensors and jam target while cloaked.
