Hey everyone, I wanted to post to clarify that this was an intentional change that unfortunately did not get documented in the patch notes. We've added the patch note (you can read the full patch notes here).
Here is the note:
We apologize for the confusion about this change!
Thanks for the clarification, Allison. Although I wholeheartedly disagree with the decision to implement this change due to the negative affects this causes for both PvPers and PvEers, I do appreciate you looking in to this for us.
