# 1 Manheim Device - Aggro Bug?
10-02-2012, 12:10 AM
Hey

I have the Temporal Destroyer and noticed that i draw instantly aggro from all enemied once i activate the Manheim Device.

To test it out my fleet and I made an experiment. In KA we all attacked the tac cube - i just had some crappy MK2 Phasers as weapons in my ship while the rest of the crew had their high tech toys. The whole time the cube completely ignored me, but when we reached 10 % I activated the Manheim device, and instantly our tank cruiser lost aggro and BAM BAM BAM my past ship got destroyed with 2 hits and I was down.

(for those who didn't knew - every damage your past ship gets will also be done to your ship)

So, activating the device usually means for me - "Dead in 3 seconds" and make the whole ship special useless.

Has anybody else encountered this problem - is that wanted or is that a bug?

Yes I also think something going wrong. Don't know how to fight with that. The past ship seems to be in the main focus if the manheim device is activated. Thats crap, activating the device is instant kill to yourself. Very strange. I want to have my future version in front of me. Behind that my present ship and after that comes the past version. But now if I start to attack enemies in front the past ship doesn't fall back, it runs directly into the enemy fire and booom. That sucks and the console device is no benefit for the ship. I think cryptic has to rework the settings!

Maybe some rework is required as i noticed this too. However it does state this is what will happen regarding damage. The Cube will lock onto the highest damage giver and when you split you effectively triple your firepower, no idea why it would target the past ship first unless of course it "knows" that killing a version of you in the past will obviously solve it's problems in the here and now! I avoid using it unless I'm going in for the kill.

Going to pop this in the gameplay bugs forum, more likely to be picked up by the appropriate types there.

Hmm.... My guess? when calculating hatred, the enemies see your time displaced shadows as you.

Also.... I did a PvP against a Timeship yesterday and when they activated the Mannheim device it automatically retargeted my attack lock.... I think, I'm not quite sure.
HAIL HYDRA!
