ive been doing a lot of teaming up lately. and i do enjoy healing my teamates. but when i need to heal my self, i cannot. example: i have 30% hull. and i try to use Engineering Team and it targets my teamate and he gets healed. not me. i had no enimies or allies targeted. i am wondering if this is a bug or an error on my part. or a setting that i have enabled.
It's a bug, but it can be fixed. In Options->Controls, there's an option to turn off "assist targets on attack." It's a little counter-intuitive, but this seems to turn off the "auto buff my ally" effect for me.
I had the same thing for a while. There's a setting in Options to fix it.
"Assist Targets on Attack", so turn that off.
What is happening is that if you are currently targeting an enemy who has your friend targeted, then whenever you use a power that can be used on someone else, it'll be used on your friend. That is the intended function of this setting.
What is odd though, is why it is turned on be default.
