# 1 Boarding Party
09-07-2010, 09:10 AM
No complaints about the skill itself but I did notice something...

If someone launches a boarding party at me and, for some unfathomable reason, I die before it reaches my ship...

I'll respawn, fly back into battle, and the boarding party will still be following me. It's not really a problem cause it's easy to kill. I just think it's silly, if not mildly amusing.

They should probably seek out another target if there is another target within 10km, or despawn if there is no one else.

That sounds reasonable. If there's another target within 10km (or maybe 5km?) they can acquire another target. Or simply disappear, of course.

also, if you get a boarding party launched against you and then cloak. the boarding party will still follow you around and chase you giving everyone else a god indication of where you are or are heading.

They also follow you around if you cloak which is also pretty funny... they don't do anything when they land though.

That's a situation where its ended up being a good thing that they changed Ramming Speed. I can't count the number of times I'd have died using battle cloak by now if they hadn't, lol. Ambience seems to have it out for me!

I only wish the Dev's would add little speech bubbles to the boarding party shuttles as they fly towards the target. "Avast ye Swabbies! Heave-to and prepare to be boarded!" would do nicely.
