# 31 You're kidding me, right?

No, the title of this is not in reference to the OP's post (which, btw, was hilarious). Rather, I have to wonder at all the folks who seems to not understand that he is joking. To everyone giving serious answers:

"You're kidding me, right?"

Unless you, too, are just playing along with the joke...in which case you got me!

Funny thing is, about half of the copycat names are spelled wrong. There wasn't a U.S.S. Enterprize. There's a reason spellcheck highlights that word.

It's Enterprise. If they can't even spell it right....
...not sure if you know the game doesn't allow the proper spelling...

Anyways, the Security Escort III thing on the ground isn't that bad, since you can set your tab targeting to only target players, meaning you won't ever get the NPCs.

Good thread. If PGI, err, sorry, Cryptic, can fix this, the rest of the game balance should fall into place nicely, too.

So if I named my character "teammates"....

[Team] Concentrate fire on teammates.

I'd get a good laugh out of that one.

IMO: Season 9 was the best season, Devs were right to focus on bugfixing. Roll back Delta Rising to that.

I got a better one. Name yourself 'yourself'.

[Team] Target >>yourself<<

Suddenly every heal on the planet is blown.

"NO YOU IDIOTS, TARGET THAT SHIP!!!"

"Which one?"

"YOURSELF!!"

"I just did."

XD

But in all seriousness, ferd is right. Ship names and character names need to be brought under control! NAO!!!!

Of course this happening is inconceivable.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

I made up a few names that must look good:

[Team] Target >>No One

[Team] Target >>Heal Me

[Team] Target >>Is Cloaked

[Team] Target >>Is Destroyed

To me the OP needs to be nerfed so we dont see such stupid threads. People have every right to name what they want, dont like it, go play hello kitty adventure. Stop ruining others gameplay boy.
