One of the greatest commands in game, is the Assist command. It has one major flaw though. It has to be used with a specific player name.

For example:
/Assist Bob

If I run this command while Bob is around I will pickup his target. (If Bob has a target.) This part is important. I will stay on my target if Bob doesn't have a target. The problem is that I might not play with Bob all the time. So I have to reassign my keybind every time I play, to pickup the target caller's target. What we need is something a bit more useful. We need an AssistSquadLeader command.

We have the ability to assign a squad leader in a team but this is a meaningless assignment, once you reach rank 50. Why not add an AssistSquadLeader command for teams to use. This way the team leader can assign a target caller and everyone can Assist that person's target. The team leader can also change who the target caller is during a fight. Say the Squad Leader dies and cannot call targets anymore.

This can be a great feature for new players to be able to follow targets.
We need an /AssistSquadLeader feature.

Thank you!

This is most likely not the same thing but usually you get your fleet leader to call the targets using the /bind t team "Focus fire on: $Target" bind. This tells team members to focus fire on a single target.

Not the same thing. What you are mentioning is the ability to tell your team in team chat what your target is. The team still has to tab through or look for the target you are mentioning. /Assist <Person's Name> instantly selects <Person's Name>'s target.

Now looking at your situation. If person A says to team to target their target. With the assist command they could just go /Assist A.
Or in a keybind /bind t "Assist A"

Now if you don't go with person A, then you have to reset your keybind to person B.

With an /AssistSquadleader all you need to do is set the target caller as the squadleader, and then have a keybind: /bind t "AssistSquadLeader"

Now when you run with a different group in an STF, all you need to do is press T and everyone will shoot at the same target.
