I disagree. Lock-on is what makes The Conduit more fun than it would be; opponents go down faster, and you get immediate results if you're hitting them or not.
My suggestions: If you're going to take out lock-on, make sure opponents can still be felled just as fast to keep the frenetic feeling. People like it when everything happens quickly. If you're going to take out lock-on, keep the visible health gauge function (just make the button activate that, instead).
If you're going to keep lock-on, get rid of auto centering to stop the use of the exploit.
I would support the idea of being able to turn lock-on off and on, except I know that everyone would always choose to turn it off, just like they do with radars when games have those. Having lobbies like Heroes 2 would be a nice alternative, since you could choose to join games with the functions you prefer on or off.

If it returns, they should only let it lock on in very close quarters situations. It helped out a ton with melee attacks, but it was kind of annoying that people could kill me easily without even aiming.
