I am not sure why, but a couple of mind BCs involved in center combat kept changing their targets arbitrarily. It probably cost us the battle in center of crimson and then cost us the game because I was unable to focus my BC fire on individual units. It was frustrating to come back to the units and see them not focusing their fire on targets I set them to attack. Perhaps it was my enemy kiting? They wouldn’t lose their target lock though. They were both still in range of my ions to begin with.
I would have to refocus my fire on the intended target. My beams would slice across empty space as they changed their direction of fire. It looks cool, but it’s null points.
Maybe it was somehow my fault? I don’t think so, but I will look for it again and keep this post updated. However, more likely it may be related to the already mentioned arbitrary targeting units have been doing from across maps.
If units are doing this while already engaged, then that adversely affects the quality of the gameplay. Just wanted to put it out there. If anyone else has had this happen to them, or just keep a look out when you micro your fleet.
