I am curently on the bandwagon that the UI CRYptic has used since day 1 continues to show its weakness and poor development.......


He could be called the ice cream man for all i care.......the UI is just rubbish and useless a good chunk of the time for me.......between not enough slots for my skills to pets everywhere and no real efficient way to screen through them and target a real life foe.


If I were at my job and B'tched and moaned about something job related i would be expected to offer a good remedy to the problem as b'tching with out offering a remedy is not good BUT i pay them to do it......get off your " we are very proud of this game and the weekly garbage bandwagon" and fix problems that have been plaguing us since launch.......


mobs in scenery.....op elite ground mobs and targetting Ui issues......


I could care less who is in charge of what and the problems are in different depts.....You took my cash fast enough and i appreciate a game with fixes to bugs in a timely and efficient manner.


In reality iI am a firm believer you have my money and now i must deal with the sCRAPs you offer us with much fanfair and adulation.

I didn't understand what was being described in the initial post but I get it now. Man, that is genius. It might be a d*** move, but if I had thought of it first I would have tried it.

I get it that it's close to or maybe actually an exploit. I guess I feel more comfortable with the overhaul that ground targeting needs in the first place than a ban on names, but whatever's clever.

I can tell you that if there was a way to make a Vo'Quv look look like a fighter and hide in the cloud it would have been changed in a hot minute.

Allow me to first say I like Bug and most of the guys in ground pvp. As a matter of fact, Bug has been on our vent, and its been fun.

But this bullying of kid by adults in this game is getting out of hand. Unless his name is offensive or hateful, he is not breaking any of the rules of the game. Change his name? Change his clothing? I should also add that he is not original with his name, that many in this game have had that name or one similar to it since last Feb.

All of this stems from him bring a dam good player. If he wasnt bending people over (and that includes myself) no one would care about any of this stuff.

My position on this: not only do I not believe this to be a exploit, but I am tempted to change my name to the same thing and have the rest of CHC to do the same. Because this isnt an exploit in any shape way or form.
Sometimes I wonder how many other MMOs STO'sd population has played, because to call this an exploit is laughable. If however, and dev would like to come here and tell me I am wrong (which i would be shocked), he can do so and he can take care of thename change as well.

But this guy is intentionally subverting a game mechanic. That's exploiting. It's really a lot more polite to appeal to his fleet about it than the alternative.
Perhaps by bringing to the fleets attention away from the public forums would be the polite way, not on here though This seems like another attempt to force CHC (probably the only ground klingon pvp fleet) to remove this player. This isnt the first time.

Sorry, I have to disagree. This is the very soul of an exploit: this guy is taking advantage of a weakness in the game system, playing in a way that was not meant to be. He's not using a skill designed to "confuse" other players, he's exploiting a loophole in the character naming mechanics that allows you to change a player-character in a copy of a non-player element in the game.

im sorry i am so lost in this post...

you want a player to change his name because YOUR TARGET MACRO doesnt work on him?

Does this make any sense?

The MACRO your running alone is a very gray line on the MMO TOS.
Why do you think macro enabled keyboards are ban'd in all offical gaming tournys?

You wana penalize him for a name? How about we penalize you for using MACROS?

Fair play??? you think macro;s are fair??? then how about YOU CHANGE YOUR NAME if you dont think its fair so its simular to his?

Infact how aboutt YOU DROP The target macro all together, then he drops the name.
Dont ask for stuff which only u benefit from.

You look really bad, because your asking for a direct handicap.

AS i see it, more points for the guy with the funny name as he found out a way to counter the target macro.

Seriously, people asking for handicaps in the game is really funny.

How? Things he's done in the past I'd agree with but this is just being clever with camouflage.

Also he only has two costumes for ground pvp, yes, the NPC escorts are that generic, the third is a weeee tiny little rommie looking thing that likes to play motion accelerator racing around the great hall (he always beats me...granted I'm still justing a mk vi kit for motion accellerator...I don't use it for anything other than ranning faster on the kill tribble colonies or blow up some flower missions)

Also considering the target macro's are something you have to manually type in and aren't something you enter in on the keybind screen the whole subverting a game mechanic becomes blurred because the vast majority of players either can't write their own binds or know they even exist.

This is ridiculous. he should change his name so someones target macro will work for him.? Do you have any idea how ridiculous this sounds?

and yet you can still create a /target key to target him and not the npc's if you just pay attention to the way the name is done.
