That’s great, now I’ll know who’s the alt of somebody else.
This is fantastic news. Could have happened around 15 years ago tho.
Actually kinda weird it wasn’t implemented that way to begin with. Definitely a step in the right direction.
Very nice change if this is coming.
Source of this please.
Today’s PTR Notes:
- Improved Chat Reporting Feedback
- /ignore now blocks all characters on the ignored player’s WoW account.
I will not be silenced! O wait i dont post on alts…
Thanks you .
It says in chat . So I’m thinking in game . Does it say forums also or are people just assuming that ?
Maybe its just the ones with terrible reading comprehension like me
lol, it’s just in-game. Although, I’m trying to figure out how exactly it’s different from the current system, because I could have sworn that’s exactly what the current system does already: puts everyone on the ignored player’s account on ignore, just only for the character you’re playing on.
Maybe they’re adding account-wide ignore lists? Or maybe they’re not letting players delete toons to bypass being on ignore anymore?
I’m a bit confused tbh
I kind of am too. I thought that if I ignore someone on Mirasol here, it means nobody on that game license can contact, group with, or mail Mirasol. If I switch chars, I have to ignore them again.
If they made it so that when I switch chars they are still ignored that is great, but I am not sure I read it that way.
Ah - and update.
It worked to ignore chars on that realm. So now it ignores all of them, not just the realm.
You still have to re-ignore them on each char, but this is an improvement.
Ah, okay. That was a bit weird before, then. This is definitely better.
Thanks for letting us know!
Honestly I just found out! One of the Forum Support Agents answered it for the CS/TS MVPs.
I appreciated the clarification. It was rather confusing.
Oh its not here yet, well I’ll be interested to know when I ignore X if I magically see W, Y and Z also get automatically ignored. Lol.
OK, this is not what I asked for. I am asking to ignore all characters of a person wherever they are. On all my characters. I always believed that the current Ignore meant Ignore them across the game, so the improvement is simply to make it everywhere, but I still need to Ignore on other characters of mine?
What the hell…
This is inspiring!
Now if only we could get it baseline on the forums.
Well, yes. It is an improvement, but not a complete fix.
- Old: Mirasol ignores Kneeshooter - it only applied to chars on the same server with Mirasol.
- New: Mirasol ignores Kneeshooter and it applies to ALL characters on Kneeshooter’s license no matter what realm.
I understand that, but I assumed in the past that Ignore meant game wide. I cannot recall ever reading anywhere that Ignore only ignored characters on one realm. I mean, why would that even be the case when people can create characters anywhere in their region?
My Global Ignore add on frankly does a better job.
PS: No limitations mentioned here, for example.
Yeah I had no idea it was not account wide either - until this “update”. I was not aware of the realm restrictions. I mean, it makes sense because cross realm was not a thing when it was implemented, but they should have done something about that long ago.
Yeah I guess but its still a bit of a halfassed fix if its so. And the fact that the post just mentions chat threw me a bit, as in " Improved Chat Reporting Feedback". Because obviously you report people during all sorts of game activity, not just involving someone saying something bad in chat somewhere.
Ah well, I was excited for a minute thinking my 10 year wish had been fulfilled. sigh
