"I just did."

XD
Laughed so hard at this one! Imagine the panic in a PUG, once someone target calls "yourself".

Here's a third one, although some might interpret this as griefing or something, since it's intentional. All 5 people on a PUGmade are called "That Guy", and have similar looking ships, all of them named "U.S.S. That Ship". They queue up for FvF Arena.

Other team:

[Team] Concentrate fire on: That Guy.

[Team] Which guy?

[Team] Which one?

[Team] They all look the same!

[Team] The one behind me. USS That Ship.

[Team] They are all named U.S.S. That Ship!

[Team] omg wat is up wit this

[Team] Concentrate fire on: That Guy.

[Team] WHICH ONE?!?


I'd laugh so hard if this happened!

IMO: Season 9 was the best season, Devs were right to focus on bugfixing. Roll back Delta Rising to that.

Great minds think alike - I was just thinking last night how awesome it would be to make a premade with all the same ships - all the same captain type - all the same name. Would be hilarious! Imagin them coing over for the beginning 5 guys of the exact same - the other players thinking there is a game bug or something!

Of course, the people on that team would have to use Teamspeak to communicate, but yeah, it would be hilarious.

I was thinking of a whole team of Jeff Lynnes

Fire at Jeff Lynne, U.S.S. Confusion

Wait hold on, they're all the same

That Gekli over there, U.S.S. Confusion

THEY'RE ALL GEKLIS!

Watch this, then you'll get the joke
I'm the guy that uses unconventional builds, and don't fall to the normal. I also don't believe in "No-BS" crap, it's in the game, it's ready to be used. Think Clint Eastwood in Heartbreak Ridge.

Anyways, the Security Escort III thing on the ground isn't that bad, since you can set your tab targeting to only target players, meaning you won't ever get the NPCs.
yes, the game already has some restrictions, so I dont see why this cant be implemented.

and as above post says, it seems that not only ship names, but character names are broken and can be exploited as well...

I prefer the name "someone else", if I was going pull such a trick, as it makes for funny moments of Target "someone else". Damnit, Target "someone else".

I can see how such naming can confuse but I do not think naming needs to be restricted just because the variations that one can use in such a trick are near endless. How would they cover them all?

I think you can see @handles, use those instead.

And come on, not everyone are in the same ship either.

Well, okay, there's that premade where everyone has the same name, ship name and ship class, but in that case, just say "ROAST MY TARGET."

Use the Target of Target, young Skywalker!

Believe it our not... some time ago i met a ship called U.S.S. Their Escort
I was calling targets that match, and every time i called out "Their Escort", my team never knew what target i was calling out.

Was big fun though... "Target Their Escort"

I have been calling for this since beta. Bran said it is working as intended. What a load of tribble turds. I have considered never playing sto again, on thursday afternoons. I bet this exploit never gets fixed, there isn't any mney in it.

It just makes me so mad I could hold down my w key...wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

Crap the kids came in and saw me all angry and turbulent. Darn you sto and your loosey goosey hax enforcement. Screw the ban hammer, I want scorched earth ban nades. Let the shrapnel ban any one one these deviants friends list just for associating with and in essence haxxoring vicariously.

I hate the world. More w's. Wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
