I target something with left click and as I’m constantly moving the camera with right click, it’s constantly targeting things I don’t want targeted. I’d love it if ArenaNet disabled right click targeting or at least added an option for it, because it’s really annoying.

Suggestion: At the topic states, a toggle to disable it. A HUGE amount of people believe that simply making right click target on mouse release instead of mouse down, that it would fix the problem, but I still feel I would randomly target things. Example being when I target something, turn my camera just a little to get a different view, and release on a huge group of people (that I obviously do not want to be targeted.) Perhaps we could have an option for all 3?

Here is the Reddit thread (I would have posted here earlier but was unable) if anyone wants to read more feedback:

I strongly agree. Until I saw the reddit page, I didn’t even know that right click could target (because that’s really unintuitive… left click and tab work fine for targeting, and if you’re rotating the camera -shame if you’re using A and D- then it’s pretty unlikely that you can see what you want to attack. Hence turning the camera). But NOW I know that right click targeting has been the source of all my dropped targets.

Seriously in almost every fight I would just lose my target sometimes, and be completely confused. I thought it was a bug until now. Anet, please add this feature.

edit: my 2 cents, making right click target on release would be awful, since you can’t see the cursor >.>

The problem with GW2’s targetting is that it fires onMouseDown, not onClick.

Targetting should be activated onClick, for left clicks only.

onMouseDown should do nothing, in of itself. You should always wait to see what the player’s going to do with the mouse next, whether he’s going to drag and hold (obviously, he wants to turn, not select), or if he’s going to click, (probably wants to select).

Tie targetting to onClick, not onMouseDown or onMouseUp.

this would be a welcomed change. swiveling the camera and accidentally targeting something i had no business to, then slapping em silly is such a pain. so instead of dealing with 2 or 3 aggro’d jotun, i now have a moa and a snow leopard chasing me; because my rifle pierced an accidental target.

Should be default behaviour to have the selection be on the up-state of the mouseclick, not the down-state.

As an engineer, I keep taking my turrets away when I just want to move the camera.

I keep talking to NPCs or reviving things mid-battle too.

I also keep losing my targets.

I just want a checkbox, like the “double click to activate” one, to disable right click activation.

I want to use the right click to move the camera ONLY.

Please, please, please fix this and remove right-click targeting (or at least make it a toggle option). It is a major issue and incredibly frustrating. I’m fed up of shooting things I didn’t want to when I’m running along panning the camera around and even worse losing my target during combat and targeting something else.

I move with double mouse button pressure and pan with my right button, which means any time I get mobile in combat my target untargets.

I fully support toggling to left-click selection only.

Just finished COF dungeon, and i say that targeting is pretty bad with right mouse click targeting. Target changes all time. I dont want to learn keep my cursor away from middle of the screen, i see no point to really do so. I use fast ground targeting and autotarget is off, so i always pick target myself with tab or C, which is Nearest Target. I never use autotargeting in games, i want to control things.

Game would be so enjoyable with Stable target. Then you can concentrate a lot better with using skills, and perhaps you can change target back and forth, and you dont have to worry that you lose target.

I play as a warrior, and many times i have wasted my skills with wrong target, or even teammate. Worst things are, for example, when using Greatsword and using Rush, and you have wrong target, for example Teammate, you just run pointless because of right click targeting. This have happened a lot.

Please, really, make right click targetin optional at least.

I have say this many times before. This really effects a gameplay a lot. Game would be much more better.

Many players dont even know that right click changes target, they are just wondering that why target has changed, but dont know how. But everyone i know, that they know about right click targeting, they dont like it at all.

Sry my bad English.

Ty for the Great Game anyway.

This issue has been brought up multiple times.

I was really surprised when I found out that the right mouse button activates stuff, and really annoyed when I saw how I kept activating stuff all the time all around me whenever I just wanted to quickly make a turn with the camera.

I never, ever use right mouse for activating or selecting stuff, and so it’s only annoying.

Right-click activation should be a toggle.

Get this changed asap, we don’t need 50 buttons to do the same thing.
Left click already selects and does actions, I don’t understand why right clicking ( which is to move the camera ) also has this same function.
It’s like having W also associated with performing actions and targeting.

This is a much needed fix for PvP/PvE/Anything.

This I can support whole heartedly! The ammount of times I’ve dragged other mobs into battle unwanted just because I wanted a better camera angle on my ranged ranger I have lost count of. Worst one was a champion troll in Bloodtide coast (think that was the map name) had him and his 3 cronies suddenly run at me.

Add my vote for this, as well. I dislike having my target change due my shifting of the camera angle in combat.

I also want to give support to the mention of not having target changes activate merely on mouse down but instead go with click.

I use very tiny moves when rotating camera with right mouse button. This makes targeting very unstable, because target changes with those moves. You can see it in video.

Targeting system with right click targeting is very unstable. Many miss clicks there. Now you have to concentrate on controls, not the game. It should be like that, that you consentrate on the game, not controls. Controls should feel natural, not like now when you have to make special attention with controls and gameplay. Please fix this, make it optional.

I agree this is a major pain. I am getting tired of targeting when I do not specifically select with my left mouse button. It appears that even as I am running down the road (both right & left buttons depressed) that I will find I’ve targeted the npc standing nearby or the rabbit on the side of the road, or the spider just dropping from a roadside tree.

This is the most annoying aspect of the right mouse button issue.

Same here. This is worse in WvW where you need to move the camera around fast and a lot, and when playing as an engineer with turrets.

A checkbox to disable right-lick targeting and activation should be added ASAP to the options panel.

Really hoping that we get this in next The Lost Shores event and update.

To be honest. I am waiting this right mouse button targeting option more than any, Any Event or any update. I dont care about the rest for now. Because this affects straight to the gameplay.

This is most important add to the game. Last night i was in WvW, and many miss targeting there because of RCT. Even that im learning larger “drawings” with my right mouse button. Its sad, that because of laggy controls, you have to learn extra moves which are useless skills for no really good reason, pointles controlling.

So disappointed if fix not be soon

But no one noticed it.

I notice it every time I run past some mob and inadvertently shoot it because I just happened to be panning the camera with right mouse button down.

I notice it every time when I stop to gather some herbs or mine some ore when I’m in the middle of a fight and start to get owned because I just happened to be panning the camera with right mouse button down.

I notice it every time when I suddenly find myself shooting at a neutral moa when a millisecond previous I was unloading on a Jotun because I just happened to be panning the camera with right mouse button down.

I notice it every time when I lose my target completely and see myself unloading 5 initiative into the air for giggles because I just happened to be panning the camera with right mouse button down.
