Pretty sure it's a bug - I've had this happen a LOT more recently (and judging by the complaints I'm hearing in mumble/general/ops, to other people too).

It seems to correlate with increased server latency, so I'd say the game thinks you don't have LOS to the target or something.

Happens a lot on the Voidstar with the doors. People try to tab select a person capping the door but can not target them.

As for the Red circle not showing on your target, I had that happen in beta but have not seen it since, if it is back, that is bad news. If you can not tell who you have targeted, you will break stuns.
Yeah its probably this. I've noticed when you can't see the nameplate on your screen, target nearest enemy won't work for grabbing a target.

The tab targetting systems isn't that bad. The targetting would be great, if you could click nameplates when tab doesn't pick up the target you want. At least this game gives multiple target binding options.

I had this same thing happen in a Civil war, Same 2 players on other team, 2 other guildies in vent had same issue on same players for the entire match all over the map, we just tagged them up, called out in ops to click target flame and gear.

Have not noticed it before or after that one time

Saw something similar with a stealther... I was in stealth too, used sneak, and stopped right next to the enemy stealther. And the stupid tab target just didn't work, no matter what I did, so I had to click in the end.

Welcome to the world of clickers.
I have actually NEVER user the TAB key to target anyone.
So, L2P guys, just L2P!!!

This week this bug quite often for me. Almost in every warzone. Mb something is broken again?
