Thanks.

Definitely ignore the guy after berating them for being such a useless waste of flesh. Hopefully we'll get legacy/account ignore in 6.0.

Legacy/account ignore will never work, and will cause so many hidden problems

How so? Other games have account wide ignore. Why can't this one?

They probably could do it, code wise, but as I've said before, many people have multiple chars. Chances are you might meet one of your friends on an alt, you or they don't know, and for some reason, one takes offense to the other. one puts them on ignore, yourfriend is gone, you complain to cs, etc, etc, etc. It would cause more crying and complaining than we have at the moment. Not to mention the many trolls in this game, which probably have normal chars that you might be friends with, etc.

legacies are not unique. it would be nice to have an account wide sort of thing though. toggling duels on/off, however, seems so freaking obvious. like...how is it 2019 and that's not a thing?

That's an oddly specific example. And one that is easily solved... you implement account-wide ignore along with other features, like what GW2 has, where an account name of some kind is attached to each character. For privacy reasons, could probably make this something optionally hidden (the idea being that if someone wants the privacy, they probably aren't worried about weird edge cases like your example).

Also, I would think if you are friends and want to hang out, you would figure out pretty quickly that your ignore made your friend disappear.

And as far as trolls go, are you speaking from experience? I think I'd want to know if a "friend" of mine was being a troll on the side.

So we all have to suffer because a few people might regret global ignoring someone? I can't imagine anyone I consider a friend could piss me off to the point I'd ignore them. Similarly, your troll example is exactly why I want global ignore. If someone is so vile that I ignore them on one character, I want them ignored on all the others, even if they can pretend to be a decent human being on a couple of them.
