I really think that BW should implement the ability to target friendly player ships while in combat. Also the ability to target their target as these abilities would go a long way in helping to coordinate teams.

Please and thank you..

It's a good idea Kegger, but with at least 4 groups already working in concert (that I know of) through 3rd party voice comms, I think may only serve to make those game where those group come up against a PUG even more lopsided.

I'm with Kegger on this one... NotThatOne... Focus target and target of target are essential tools for any raid group. I feel they are just as applicable in space as they are on the ground. I'd argue just the opposite of your "disadvantage for PUGs" argument. In a situation where you're facing a totally pre-made lobby, the ability to find a wing-man and address the same goal is the only defense against a team with voice chat.

No reason why people cant use regular typed chat while in transit to a node or other objective. People make excuses about voice comms, yet they dont use it themselves, they dont use chat, and they dont form their own premade.

It would be nice to know what ships you're working with. Today while guarding a node with a teammate, I slid next to him and stuck my nose up his butt to figure out what sort of ship he was flying. (It was a gunship.)

That works fine for dogs, but I'm going to make my teammates nervous if I keep on doing this.
