Or they want you to target without the crutch of binds...
Just saying, maybe this was intentional in order to break the target macro crutch that some people use. You know it...
"Everyone set your target macros to DUDE."
Click button -> target DUDE.
It could be a bug, or it could be an attempt to get people to use situational awareness instead of target macros.
$Target has nothing to do with auto targeting macros.
Using: /bind key "party "My target is --> $target"" is simply the fastest way to inform your team about WHO you are attacking. It is FUNDAMENTAL to formulate basic team strategies in the absence of a voice chat (Vent or TS, Vivox is still unusable).
With that parameter disabled the GAP between PuG teams and Premades with voicechat is even greater than before.
I agree with Lord-Thy. $Target was excellent for communicating targets in PUGs. Pre-mades use voice chat. Given that that the new voice chat is not working for the PUGs; how about bringing back $Target?
