It is pretty dumb.
Emphasis added. Bring that up in a better attended part of the forums or a podcast and some carebear will cry foul and it will get fixed.

Who says this is a bug?

We all know cryptic wants nothing more than for the KDF to crawl in a hole and die.

I'll look into this one. Cloak is designed to clear targets against hostile enemies. It sounds like the Focus Target function may not be doing that.

Just so I'm clear, this gives Carriers specifically a bit advantage against Cloaking enemies, correct? Because even if you have a cloaked target in Focus yourself, you're not able to attack them are you? But as I'm hearing it, Carrier pets will still follow cloaked focus targets?

Just wanna make sure I have my facts straight.

I have not tested it myself yet, but from my understanding the pets follow you around once you have cloaked. You can also do this with the scorpion fighters. The scorpions, I do know still occasionally will take shots at you while you are cloaked but as far as the other pets I am uncertain.

Partly because anyone rolling FAW will pop me out of cloak anyway.

Any "Pet" classified Objects. Including Mines. Basically anything that you deploy that is allied to you but is not a player that can aquire a target. These objects can always see cloaked targets if they are locked on. This is ESPECIALLY bad on Mines when an enemy flys too close to them and triggers them, even if they don't detonate and the target avoids the mines.
You think that your beta test was bad?

that explains a lot
FYI last time i checked atox pets would see a target if it is within 1-2km of the pets, which seemed to be working as intended. If you select the fighter i could target its target, but loose it immediately again
F@W declaoking is back for sure

Running into a minefield shouldn't make you immune to explosions...

Nah, a LOT of old bugs have resurfaced. I swear it's like someone just flicked a switch and reverted them. Even hazard emitters is broken again.
