Even if the 51's ability list and stat set was pruned to be that of a level 12 (starter planet maximum level), which it isn't, the character would still be able to instasquish a level 6.

How on earth can this level 51 guy think that he's some kind of champion by dueling with single-digit characters?? That's kind of sad.
Use the ignore function in chat, and report him for spamming. He'd have to use another character to harass you after that, if he does, contact the moderators, and keep ignoring him in chat until something is done about it.

As mentioned already, use the ignore function, then bust out the 'clubdance' emote in front of them. Have fun with the 'idiots'.

Over many years there have been requests to have an auto-ignore for duel requests. I have played many MMOs and this is the only one I can think of that does *not* have that.

It is a totally incomprehensible design decision.

It is, indeed, totally incomprehensible, but at least it allows SWTOR to serve as a concrete example of "game that doesn't allow auto-decline for duels" when people suggest adding duelling to GW2. Duelling is antithetical to an assortment of GW2 design principles, but the suggesters often assume that "of course" an autodecline function would be included. I can currently use SWTOR as an example of why one should not assume that auto-decline would be included.

I've found that pointing out the level difference in gen chat tends to help. Because then other players tend to tell off the offending person.

Unless they added it recently without mentioning it in the patch notes, it's not in the game.

I just double-checked. It's definitely not there, although everything else under the sun has an auto-decline.

Considering how many people have asked for it, I would think they'd announce it when and if they finally added this.

Hey!

I would definitely use some of the advice that others have posted here. Ignore the player and if they are being harassing, definitely report them in-game. I suspect the team is already aware but I am going to raise it up that there is no auto-decline for duel requests.

Thanks.
