Potential fix for involuntary PVP flagging in WoD
« on: January 29, 2014, 01:29:17 PM »
Blue post (Bashiok) in response to player complaining about involuntary PVP:

Well, I understand where you're coming from, but flagging as a PvE character is based on a player's action to flag themselves (even if it's on accident), so I'm not sure it's us making you PvP. The systems that can cause someone to flag can absolutely at times be involuntary, which is notably frustrating.

In any case we are continuing toward a goal of a PvP on/off toggle for players on PvE realms to be added in Warlords of Draenor, which would absolutely and in all situations allow someone to refrain from becoming flagged regardless of their actions. Heals toward flagged players would fail, coalescing to PvP realms wouldn't be possible, misclicks and AoE's would never damage a flagged opponent, etc. It's actually quite a bit of work because of all the systems involved, but it's still something we think PvE players should have, and how the game should work for them.

[I would love to see this implemented...]

This is on the top of my wish list. I would donate to a kickstarter to see this happen! The only time wow players actually piss me off is when they flag and stand on important npcs/foes.
Yuinergos - Anubrisnaruu - etc.
