This highlights just how little the TOR devs know what they are doing. PvP should not be an option of any kind on the PvE servers. Not even sparring or dueling. PvP should be 100% restricted to the servers dedicated to PvP. PvE players choose a PvE server because they don't want to play with that ganking crap.

More BioWare/EA/Lucasarts fail.

Same things happened to me twice, was killing mobs, i have no interest in PvP and all of a sudden a bunch of republic's appeared and started wailing on me...its been happening now two days in a row.

I've sent a ticket into BW obviously they will just ignore it, i have no interest in PVP at all, I'm on a PVE server. Keeps happening I'll simply unsub and leave.

Kind of funny how it happened.

If BW changed it so that unflagged characters cannot damage flagged characters, forcing you to /pvp before being able to damage him, it wouldn't have happened.

Oh well. You ended up getting killed. I'd laugh and move on.
I shot first.

And its something I'd prefer changed. I rolled that character on a PvE server and expected as such. There should not be "tricking" into flagging. I either Join a PvP skirmish, or I flag myself voluntarily.

If I wanted this type of PvP for this character I would have rolled him on a PvP server.

As soon as one PvE server guy gets involuntary ganked the whole world is ending
not everyone gives a crap about pvp, and this guy wasn't involuntarily ganked. He was intentionally griefed by a baddie who thought it would be funny to one shot someone much lower level.

If mr. flagged level 50 wanted to gank lowbies, roll on a pvp server and keep his stupid unwanted and unasked for ganking off my pve server.

Exactly. There shouldn't be any way for him to drag another player into PvE.

While I don't mind PvPing in the areas, I know there are players that absolutely want nothing to do with PvP, and they should not have to. They made their characters on a PvE server for a reason.

So update here. 2 and a half weeks no response in the game petition. So I added the comment asking what was going on, I don't need to know about actions on another player, just has this been forwarded on.


The ticket doesn't get closed it gets locked, then deleted.

I had no idea what had happened.

Level 50 group just flagged me for PvP, a level 40 playing alone. I hadn't seen it before so I didn't realize that I could even turn it off. Did they 'trick' me by me fighting back, or if I had been fast and typed in /PvP would it have turned off before they could kill me?

When I looked it up on the online help, it says that you stay flagged for 5 minutes after switching it off. I healed and typed in /pvp and it says I turned it on, which I don't get, I am flagged, but it isn't on?

I typed it in again to turn the flag 'off' and I guess I have to wait my 5 minutes, after I waste my quick travel to get to a Catina? Is there a quicker way to turn this off?

I think I know one of their names, or close. Should I report them?

Not amused. PvE should be PvE. I have no interest in playing PvP.

It will be fine in 5 minutes, just relax
