Target Center Screen is woefully insufficient because it targets both enemy and friendly, and if you get the wrong guy, it doesn't change targets unless you wobble the center of your screen around. No matter what option you pick, you're fighting the game, not the players.

not gona read all these pages here to see if this was mentioned but I will add what I hate the most about tab targeting.
Being on the main level in huttbal and trying to target the only guy on my screen a nightmare
Being on the top ramps in huttball and hitting tab and leap to the only guy in the endzone who is the ONLY ENEMY on my screen, only to be leaping to joe shmoe down in the pit is maddening

What is funny to me is that games in the near 2000 era had tab targetting down, however recent games have used retarded wombats to program their tab targetting systems.

in ToR I have actually had to resort to CLICKING the person...its horrendous!

Yes the tab targetting is awful. I played WAR and never felt like this about it. Say what you want about wow, their system was smooth as silk. In this game I feel it is actually going out of its way to select the wrong target. Absolutely infuriating in crunch moments. The only saving grace is that it is the same for everyone.

Of all the things in the game it is this and the wall of red spam constantly on my screen that annoys me the most.

Bump. Because a dev actually asked what could be improved with tab targeting in the PTS forum.

I think that the suggestions in the OP is exactly what is needed.
