A slight variation on this was something suggested when JHeinig was tweaking the power, in making the effect a 'Beam: Rapid Fire' kind of effect, if a target was selected, but, if you un-selected all targets (or targeted a friendly, say, for Healing), it would fire with the random targeting that has always been used by some aspect of FAW, this would allow the power to serve as either a boost to damage on a focus target, or allow spam-clearing, as it always has.

The argument against a change such as this: "We think that it would be too counter-intuitive for the majority of players..." Okay, so, the argument is that you don't think the players are 'smart' enough to figure out, both how it works and how to benefit from it?

With all versions of FAW, I have frequently de-selected targets, to facilitate spam-clearing, maybe I just don't feel that it's all that 'counter-intuitive'...
