And really, lets look at the immersion breaking:

Our characters are heroes; one would think that they would have the situational awareness to understand that "that mage over there is pointing a wand at me" or "that rogue looked at me funny" or "I know for sure that arrow came from over in that direction."

Right now, we are completely in the dark. We don't know who hit us, how much they hit us for (indicating threat level), if it was one target or multiple… Nothing. (Edit: slight exaggeration, sure, but who can really read all those floaty numbers?)

In a PVE game that would likely work ok; but in a game that is supposed to be all about big, strategic PVP battles, it just isn't working. (Edit: In my opinion)

Last Edit: I also think this idea works well with the GW goal of PFO being a 'non-twitch' based game. Clicking on characters is always going to be somewhat difficult (for some more than others) and I believe anything that facilitates that will be a good thing for the game in general.

I am very excited to see the new targeting UI that is planned to go live in EE7, but it got me thinking that there is still one major piece of the targeting puzzle that is missing: A list of who is targeting me.

For the sake of MVP, I envision a first iteration of this as a simple list, maybe 10-12 slots under the Achievement tracker, of who has recently targeted me. I don't know (or really care) if the names drop off after some sort of timer expires, as soon as I am no longer targeted by the entity (server intensive?), or if the newest names simply push down the older names until they fall off of the list.

As the iteration process goes on, I can think of how amazing it would be to interact with the list directly! If someone targets me, I can simply click their name from the list and now they are targeted too. Somewhere down the line I could see additional info in the list; such as, if the entity has recently attacked me, or has an attack in a queue waiting for me. Perhaps even similar info relating to party members.

I know there will always be an element of latency, but frankly that doesn't bother me. The benefits of seeing who has me target far outweigh that (and I would be interested to see what the Devs could come up with regarding the Target list and Sneak Attack, Perception, and other such things). I actually wouldn't even mind if this was a list that needed to be manually refreshed on occasion (like the Holdings list).

Currently, especially in PVP, we cannot even really begin to formulate strategies when engaging in mass battle. Putting aside all of the other targeting problems (flagging, etc.), most of the time PVP is a whole coop of chickens running around with their heads cut off. We need to be able to know who is killing us, so that we can begin to strategise.

Even in PVE this 'Targeted by' list would be amazingly helpful, especially for controlling aggro.

Anyway, this is my dream, what is your dream? smile

Look it's Dazyk halfspoken. Are we going to contribute anything to this thread Or are we going to call Golgothans names?

What names did I call you? Seems to me, and see your own quote, above, that you are the ones calling names.

What are you, four?

Are you guys still crying about us taking your towers? The ones you just took back the next day? Wow.

You broke one of our rules, we retaliated in the only way we could.

Get over it. Babies.

Edit: Not constructive to the OP, I know. But com'on. REally?

No, I am calling hypocrisy on your claim that PvE is hostile *if* you want PvE-ers left out of wars.

You're free to TRY and punish people for PvE-ing in your hopes to thwart them. We're free to try and thwart your PvE, when you do. Actually, we were always free to do it, you just provided us with the motivation.

That's funny, cuz I hear a whole lot of crying from you and your 'mates' lately. "Nihimon this," and "Nihimon that," and "Phaeros is cancer."

Hopefully you realise that people of Phaeros aren't lemmings. We don't follow a 'benevolent dictator." We make our own choices.

Now, back in your kennel.

So you are fine with Golgotha's actions then is what I am hearing you saying? I mean you wouldn't want to be all whiny and wah over a bit of pvp right?

Get over it. Babies.

Edit: Not constructive to the OP, I know. But com'on. REally?

Yup.

I mean, have you HEARD anyone from Phaeros complaining? This is a territorial PVP game, isn't it?

I will accept this challenge with humility but firm resolve to lead my subjects well. Together, we can make Phaeros a beacon of strength, prosperity, and glory.

While I know that I am not the only one who thinks you would be an asset to Phaeros, unfortunately, we are a Democracy, not a Monarchy, Dictatorship, or otherwise.

Sorry for getting your hopes up!

I vote Guurzak for benevolent dictator!

Strangely enough, he is easier to understand than the current dictator.
