    griefing someone elses play is not cool imo, but if you are accidentally flagged just stay dead for 5minutes while the flag wears off then res and continue on with your non pvp life.

    Why is there even a pvp option on pve server.. not sure I get it. However, I play mostly on PVP server, so it's normal for me to attack alliance when I see it, but when I'm on a pve server, I don't see that I'm usually surrounded by not pvp flagged alliance and get ganked like crazy with all the horde around not doing anything to help.

    It's completely broken pvp, no clue why it even exists.

    Any PVP-related events should work on PVE servers the way, they worked in BC: "You have to switch your PVP flag on in order to participate" message should popup.

    it'd be good if they added that functionality to it, like a little box appears and you have to approve of the flag.

    I'd love to see a 'don't flag me for PvP box' that has been avaliable in other MMO's I've played.

    It's not so much that I can't manage to avoid clicking the assats who prance around on your quest NPC's/mobs as you try to loot or hand in quests - that's easy enough. My main beef with it is that tit in your raid frames at world bosses/rares that is flagged and gets you flagged if you throw them a heal/res because you don't realise they were flagged. I've already just permanently stopped ressing people at world bosses because I got fed up being flagged.

    I've also had to set up a separate DoC macro for my Druid because it's set to heal the tank... and yeah there's a hell of a lot of flagged morons running around Timeless.

    Would love to see them give us a no world PvP flag box where if you try to attack/heal/buff anyone who's flagged, the spell just refuses to cast.

    Just to back up this post - This is a perfect example of people not wanting to play together in an MMO because of accidental flagging. Instead of me tossing heals and buffs around to friendly players, I ignore them. I have yet to hear any reasons on why accidental PVP flagging is good for an MMO.

    Not one person in favor of accidental flagging has even tried to explain what benifits I could have from getting accidentally flagged. Instead the only responses from people who like accidental flagging range from "You suck" and "L2P" and "Just stop playing" to "it's no big deal" and "you probably should take a 5 minute break anyway if a PVP flagged players griefs you."

    This also happens with rezzing -- and the flag doesn't even show on the corpse!
