So I have a trigger where I can designate a single person in party chat to follow the targets of, e.g. automatically targeting Bob if someone in party says "target Bob." Anyway, there was a mini-argument over this and there were a few points raised over why it's apparently a bad thing.
Them: You can illusion party calls!
Me: I can make my trigger recognize my partytell colour.
Them: But party sticks and hocus pocus can illusion in colour!
Me: They also give a message, so I can make the trigger disregard the call if the illusion message precedes it.
Them: But monks can mind command the target caller!
Me: Then I can set up a target blacklist in a table so that I don't automatically target people listed in the table, which would also solve the illusion problem.
Them: But then you have to go and edit the table! How can you dig into thousands of lines of code mid-combat?
Me: My entire system is sorted into folders that I can click to in a couple seconds.
Them: But it's still bad! You have to use your own judgement and reaction time instead of scripting everything!
Any opinions? To me, this seems like the archaic "scripts are bad, real pros manual everything" mindset that a select few people across IRE still seem to have. I'd hate to tell them that I can put my entire offense on a single keybind and just mash that until my target's dead, but hey.
