I think they should atleast put a zen price on ship names. if you do not pay, you cannot change the ship name.

sure it would be pay to win, but the state of naming ships is ridiculous as is, there is no point in denying that it is a function for exploiters, but why give it away for free. let them pay a fine for cheating atleast

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.
and the reason it does that now is because in the past someone would spawn 15+ se3's and there was no way to figure out what the orginal one was cuz he would run around looking like them too and oh in the past we didnt have that wonderful feature now "to not target npcs"

Best lol thread of the week.

First impression: It's a joke.
2nd: Oh he's serious.
3rd: Wait he has a point.
4th: Troll!
5th: Hey it was legit.
6th: xdlol

Frankly I don't see this as any more non-legit than keybinding targets. Which after all is the only source of confusion if someone does this. U.S.S. Nerf Ship Names incoming.

If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting. ~thlaylierah
So realistically, you only need to have the exact number of doffs that you need. ~leadme2kirk

I've never seen a target called on ship name.

I have seen somebody name their ship expecting them to pay attention to the name. There was a Tac that named their ship DontHealMe because they wanted GDF in a Mirror event. When nobody paid attention to the name (likely didn't see it), he complained in /team. At which point we all agreed to heal him even more.

How about a matching game?

Can you match the following ship names...

I.R.W. Fragmentius
U.S.S. Scythe
I.K.S. Ch'Zel
U.S.S. Mesmer
I.K.S. Predatory Smile
U.S.S. Grape Avenger
I.K.S. R'srs
U.S.S. North Wind
I.K.S. South Wind the following pilots & ships?

Sci - Fleet T'varo
Eng - MU Vor'cha
Tac - MU Advanced
Eng - Chel Grett
Sci - MU Deep Space
Eng - JHEC
Sci - Hegh'ta
Tac - MU Vo'Quv
Eng - MU Star

Hrmm, guess the I.R.W. one is a gimme.

the naming of the ships can be exploited to such an extent, that it is now ridiculous.

what it means:

I have seen several times, that ships are named, USS healmepls, and USS donthealmepls (possibly trying to activate GDF), USS crowdcontrol, and so on.

THIS gives a huge advantage in pugs, where you dont necessarily know your team, and not everyone has the access to the voice options. this way instant information is spread through the team, that gives them an edge, compared to the other team, who are not exploiting

also another great examples are the likes of USS asdfsadfdsafdsaf USS Schmetterling and USSdfkasjfieflkajfdij and such nonsense gibberish.

this makes even premades harder, with voice chat, as they try to coordinate attacks, and they cannot concentrate fire on that ship, as they cannot pronounce it. further more, this gives an even bigger adv against pugs and premades without voice, where you would actually have to type those names down!

I really hope, cryptic deals with those exploiters, who are taking advantage of honest players
This isn't the People's Game of Star Trek Online. Ship names add personalization to the game. Plus, you can type in the character name, let's say it's ADASADSJKASDK, once you type in ADA, ADASADSJKASDK should appear above it. Done.
I would love to visit this star in-game...or maybe this one!

If somebody suggests a new name for my ship, will a TRH player spring out of a cupboard all NEENJA like and cry about 3rd-Party Namehax?

right? so many exploits not fixed since... ever

it is a shame, that some people just attack others on the forum, because they love abusing the system, and anyone who points it out becomes the villain
