Dear CHC,

As you know there is a player on your crew these days that had been the subject of much controversy. Currently,he is running an alt which is named after another targetable in the game. As a result it is now impossible to set a key bind to target him.

He deploys a blizzard of escorts and runs in with them confusing the situation farther. The inability to target him has literally left me unclear what he actually even looks like for a couple of weeks now. So, I can't even tab through the escorts and target him visuallyI I have NEVER had anything like that to deal with in a enemy.

I am asking that you have him lose the "III" at the end of his name so that a key bind can still be set.

In another thread he has already been shown to have used a wide variety of exploits. He has admitted to doing so in the same thread. In yet anohther related thread, "exploit" was essentially defined as using a loophole in existing game mecahics to give you an edge that the game designers never intended and other players do not have. Imagine if every tac in the game was renamed after their escorts and suddenly became unbindable.

The designers made keybinds part of the game and they are widely used by high level players. I am sure the player in question is binding us. But, his loophole allows him a very large edge in game play when we can target the rest of your unit but not him.

I of course hate the blizzard of escorts. But, it is just a variant of what all tacs do. It is basic to the game. So, I am fine with it. A similar name that caues some confusion in tabbing (but remains bindable) is fine with me as well.

However, allowing him to keep playing an unbindable name when every other player on the map can be bound (including all the ones he is targeting) gives him a clear advantage not intended by the designers. IMO, it clearly fits the definition of exploiting mentioned above.

Nyrus has vouched for this player and said pubically that he would not be allowed to use exploits while running with your crew. Nyrus promised me and many others that if the player in question is ever shown to be exploiting again while running with CHC, he will be removed from the crew. I believe that the Honor of your Fleet demands action based on these promises.

I recommend a more lenient approach than the remedy promised by your fleet. I am merely asking for him to drop the "III" at the end of is name. He keeps the tab confusion with a very simlar name (hell let him be "II" if he wants) and the blizzard of escorts. But, he returns to a status where we all are, bindable.

I think that a reasonable request. Please take it before the High Council.

P.S. This player should learn that he is excellent WITHOUT the unfair advantages he seems to keep taking at the whole PvP community's expense. This ongoing behavior does nothing to restore his reputation or that of CHC so soon after he pleaded for a chance to prove he is playing clean.

Well let me be the first to break it to you. NO! If that guy does not want to change his name doesint mean you can try to black ball a fleet into makeing the guy do it. I dislike chc because of past issues with them in other games. but i will stand up for them on this. Just because you cant tab doesint mean its an exploit. try clicking on his toon.

Read the post again. I am not talking about tabbing. Nor am I even talking about space combat.

Thanks for your input.; However, you do not seem to undersand the basics of what I am talking about. CHC does. I'll wait to her from them.

Have a nice day

So you can't keybind this particular named ship?
What sort of keybind?
Why is the "name" not letting said keybind work?
Is this name a normal name or did the player choose to be named after his vessel type?
Why must you have his name changed to make you keybind work? Seems as if you are infringing on his ability to freely name his vessel/character as he sees fit just to make sure you keybinds work.

Well again that is in the post. He swarms with other identially named escorts and I have not been able to pick him out in the heat of battle from his posse for a couple of weeks. In fact, I thought I had for several days and then found out it was a drone. Impossible to click on someone when you do not know which one you want visually.

That is why key binds is the issue I am asking about. Use them? Know what I an talking about? That is what he is exploiting.

However, I am here to talk to CKC not debate folks that are missing the basics of the OP.

Have a nice day.

His name is exploiting the ability for you to use a keybind that says ," target escort *BOB*" in effect?
Or the keybind you are attempting to use is for a different purpose?

I understand the OP just fine, merely curiuos why another player must change his name to satisfy your ability to keybind target him?

You think your the only person that has delt with anything like this? Adapt i dont have a prob finding a target just look for the buffs below there name when you target them yes battle is fast but if you dont adapt you die and it sounds like you have been doing a lot of that.

Although I don't think this guy should change his name either... you guys get the OP is talking about GROUND combat right. I assume this guy is setting his toon up to look and has named him after his tactical escorts. Using tac init to always have 2-4 with him and running along with them.

There is nothing at all like this in space combat. If photo fleet ALWAYS spawned the exact same ships and you could reliably have it up ALL the time and you made your ship look exactly like the photo ship... and the game gave you NO way to tell the diffence with reticals or what ever... then it would be the same.


So my point is instead of tying to shame a fleet into complying with your wishes.... do something more useful. ASK CRYPTIC to change the escort detail (I'm assuming this is what your issue is) To be more clearly NPCS. Make them glow in a pvp match... make them all 8 feet tall.... make them look diffrent then any toon we can make.... dosn't matter. Point is petition the proper people to make the changes so you have no issues.

As far as not being able to keybind his name though.... seriously ????
