    Do you ignore people in normal BGs?

    I read somewhere that if you ignore people you will never join a battleground (or pve heroic) with them. (is that correct?)

    If the above statement stands lately I ignore persons I wouldn't like to group with.

    Those persons can be:

    a) afkers or bots
    b) let them win whiners
    c) bad geared players. Sure everyone must start somewhere but please have the dignity to buy the crafted pvp set. It is cheap!

    It feels great not having to team up with them again.

    Anyone else doing the same? And how many slots does our ignore list have?

    I thought it was tied to battle groups?

    Random BGs have no ties to Battlegroups.
    They havn't for a long time.

    OT: I don't know if ignoring them means you never group up with them again, but I ignore people once in a while.

    I hope it does :P Every random bg you join there is atleast 2-3 uber bad geared (green - fresh dinged) people, then there are 2-3 bots and some just uber bad players ...

    If that was a guaranteed mechanism it seems like it could cause a matchmaking gridlock at some point.

    Aww man I thought this was gonna be about people generally not listening to any calls/strategy and just running around herping and derping. I was actually interested if a large amount of the player base willingly ignores calls since thats what it seems like half the time.

    Ignore list isn't big enough to do this unfortunately.

    I usually do not ignore people, other than those who feel the need to whisper me stupid things.

    Apart from that, I wish we could perma-ignore whole accounts, or even better, persons.

    Everyone starts out bad-geared and they're the "new generation" so one day you might be alone, lol.

    I know plenty of people who farm/buy/craft the crafted gear.
    And usually in a 10 man game its usually just one person with abysmal gear.

    It would be a great mechanic if the ignore list would be of such small capacity... I filled it up in 3 weeks of when LFG came out in patch 3.3.

    wat?

    I can't ignore people from other servers, for some reason. When I right-click their name in the chat and choose Ignore, it just says Player not found, but I was able to previously.

    Just create another tab for BGs and switch it off. My ignore list is near capacity from lfr.

    The problem with bots are solved! Everyone in the game just have to ignore them...

    You have to type out their name and ignore them.

    So say I'm playing on Outland and someone from Stormscale is mouthing off in /i about everyone being bad. I'd type /ignore Hisname-Stormscale and he'd be ignored. It is always [Name]-[Server], no spaces between either and the '-'.

    I ignore everyone who's a jackass to random strangers/his or her team in BGs, until my ignore list fills up It needs to be bigger :x Otherwise, I don't much care what people do, just don't be one of those "OMG THIS TEAM SUCKS" "OMG UR ALL AWFUL" fools.

    If someone is to lazy to get the contenders set at least and rocks up to a BG with lvl 85 greens I will report them afk. Yes its hard to break into the 90 pvp bracket but sorry but I ain't carrying slackers.

    You don't show up to an Ice hockey game without good pads or you gonna get owned. But even that bicycle helmet and soccer shin guard will do for the time being.

    I've never ignored anyone in the 6 years I've played this game.

    But if this is true I'll have to start doing it :P At least I have room for it!

    Unless someone is behaving like a real ass, I don't bother ignoring them. The chances to meet the same players multiple times in a random battleground are rather small.
