    Unflagged on Isle of Thunder (pvp server)

    Here on Ursin, I'm seeing a LOT of blueflagged horde on the isle. Ursin is a pvp realm, however, and the realm is contested territory. Is there an item or trick I'm not aware of? Is this the result of an exploit or bug?

    I noticed the same thing in my realm. I was wondering the same as you. Couldn't find anything about this problem yet :\

    Bug probably, should get resolved soon I guess.
    Kinda gamebreaking.

    Seen it for Horde quite often, happened to me too with Alliance turning "yellow". Never saw an Alliance turn unattackable though so I see no reason to fix this.

    Perhaps might be linked to the choice of PvE/PvP quests? Not sure, just clutching at straws a bit, but might explain why players have become unattackable...?

    I had the same bug happening to me but before 5.2 . If you join a group team - like sha - on a pve realm , and leave the group , sometimes you wont get flagged back for some reason . Not bad on a 7/3 ratio like my realm ;p

    I'm pretty sure when you have the buff that changes you into a lizard, you will not be pvp flagged, or are you finding it everywhere ?

    Only PvE quests are available atm regardless of sort of realm

    Based on the stuff in here, it might be faction specific? I haven't seen any blue flagged Alliance, but I see blue flagged horde (invincible, but able to attack me if they so choose, which would presumably flag them) quite a bit.

    In any event, definitely game breaking if they are playing by pve rulesets on Ursin. And these aren't imports- they are Ursinites.


    The Sha theory and the failure to flag seem likely. I will take this to the official forums. I was wondering if this was deliberate or accidental.

    Check their realm, I thought I remembered blizzard saying some cross realm groups included both pve and pvp realms, so the pve players wouldn't be flagged if they were mixed. Just a thought

    If they are on a PvP server due to CRZ (not enabled in MoP zones yet so not able to be because of this) or RealID invite they will be autoflagged the same as anyone else on the realm.

    I've noticed it, too, and I don't think I've noticed unflagged Alliance either. All of them are also from my server, no cross-server people. I was derping on my feral druid and realized all of the ally who passed me by were yellow. The only thing I can think of is that it's a glitch with the quest givers, since (I think?) you're unflagged when you enter the invisi-bubble thing. It has to be a glitch with that, but I'm not sure if there's any rhyme or reason to it, or if it just randomly misses flagging people.

    You get it by going into the "sanctuary" zones, I was dodging in and out of the Horde's starting one because the Alliance were camping on Outland-EU, ended up losing my tag and went off on my business.

    I'm not sure if it's intentional, but for imbalanced servers it's a godsend.

    yeah it have been happening since before 5.1 so good luck w/ that

    you have to realize that anyone at blizz still working on wow nowadays is probably either:
    A. so bad that other teams didn't want them
    B. a lazy guy who prefers to stay on a relaxed, low-pressure job of maintaining a well oiled game where all the hard work have already been done a long time ago

    there's probably only a handful of programmers still working on it anyway

    Welp, it's actually very easy to trigger, hence why people are abusing the heck out of it:

    Nice QA blizzard!

    Also you'd think they'd read ownedcore since those people are basically doing their QA department's job and actually find bugs with detailed intructions to reproduce them.

    I've had the same thing happen several times over the past couple of days, it also flagged me a couple of times as well

    You see, I don't mind that. I do find it annoying when I get 2 terribad Alliance prots just humping my leg while I try to do the dailies with 15 minutes before reset. Ended up missing the deadline by about a minute -.-

    OH NOES I COULDN'T FINISH SOME OF MY POINTLESS DAILY CHORES QQ

    Be grateful that they are making the game vaguely challenging and interesting. A game where you can't lose is not a real game (ie about 80% of wow)
