And the switch simply prevents that from happening. So nothing changes for you, except people getting randomly flagged although they did not want to.
I should NOT have to deal with PvP on a NORMAL (PvE) realm. PvPers should not have to deal with Normal realm (PvE) things on a PvP realm either. So get over yourself kid. Blizz is resolving an ever growing ANNOYANCE which becomes harassment.
So the only problem that remeins is people who accidently click PVP flagged players. Is this what you have to rely on when you want to PVP, because you are not able to beat people who deliberatly choose to PVP?
And your argument that you cannot (seriously) level only using PVP is good. But it's not argument against the PVE switch, it's another suggestion you should bring to Blizzard.
Sometimes people get injured in flag football. Accidents happen guys.
Annoying you isnt harassment. Nobody forces you to flag, you are too incompetent to not flag. If you are incompetent, you deal with it. if I agro enemies while fighting players, its my fault, not the player I was fighting, not Blizzard for placment of the enemies, me. If you flag yourself for PvP aside from an AoE bug (hint cleave=/=AoE) it is your fault, and that is something you should deal with This is simply letting players faceroll their way blindly without getting beaten by another player, supporting stupidity is a mistake and Blizzards double standard for PvP or more importantly, players who do BOTH is asinine.
Since you seem to be the only one that does not seem to understand that NORMAL = PvE realm when discussing realm types, I guess you also seem to be the only one that doesn't understand that a PvP realm is just a normal realm where you have your /PvP flag stuck on once you leave your capital and lowbie faction zones.
There is a /PvP flag mechanic, which is what is being discussed.
You find a realm that has /PvE flag that can be turned off or on, and then maybe your argument has merit. Until then, you're just making irrelevent noise.
I promise you, I don't need to trick some terribad to flag to wreck 4+ players at once on the isle, it is the way Blizzard is not only enabling stupidity, but also not giving the same opportunities to those who play, or have a character for, exclusively PvP.
I'm sorry your comprehension is weak, I'm saying that if a /PvP mechanic should exist with a Never ever PvP option, the same SHOULD be added for a /PvE thing, because this is simply not fair for those who exclusively PvP. Why should PvPers be careful to not screw up in the world and end up fighting enemies while PvErs can tab spam and multidot blindly with no risk? You can level exclusively though PvE, not doable with PvP, even at level 10, the rest of the way is ridiculously long compared to PvE. I cant just convert honor to justice and buy items because the justice items and blocked by reputation tied to PvE dailies. Professions cannot be leveled through BGs either.

Even though people CLAIM to say It's your fault if you flag,
I'd like to point out that Cascade was flagging people. That is something beyond our control. It took Blizz 2-3 weeks to fix it.
yes we COULD choose something else in that time or not use it but that is besides the point. I shouldn't HAVE to choose something else just because some people want to be asshats.
