# 1 Self buffing game fault
02-21-2010, 12:27 PM
Why, when i use tactical squad on hotkey ALT-1, does it target a team member and buff them with the skill over myself?

This is with the hostile i am attacking being targeted. It only works currently if no team members are within range, or i target myself then use the buff skill.

Abit gimpy is it not?

I have noticed this with buffs as well, but it seems kind or random.

If I have no target selected, and a friendly ship in range, the game seems to randomly select one of us to apply the buff to. At first i thought maybe it was an intelligent system (like who needed it most) alas, this appears not to be the case.

Now I just hit F1 before i try to buff.

Turn off "attack through target" in the options menu.

Yea, it isnt a intelligent system, its just a random team mate buffing.

Just a pain in the rear, having to hit f1 before using my own skill to buff myself. Somethings wrong there..

Thank you very much if it works. A weird thing to have on as standard!
