    I just noticed on the QA server that I am flagged PVP - but I never flagged for it?

    I just searched my chat logs on my QA build computer (only one I've ever played on) - and the only mention in the chat logs about being flagged for PVP is when I just turned it off:

    Having the same issue.
    The PVP flag appeared in Build 596. You can see it from my screenshots (596 vs. 595).

    A data migration occurred. Is it possible the PVP flag was carried over from Live? Has this issue been reproduced since?

    I don't think it is possible for me as my Avatar was PVP flagged only between 22nd and 23rd of November on the Live Server and
    Level of Skills on the QA are from a later date when I wasn't PVP flagged anylonger.

    The PVP flag just suddenly disappeared itself without me ever restoring protection at any Oracle on the QA.

    @Attenwood Do you know the timestamp of the data that was migrated?

    Okay, I found myself flagged PvP on the QA server when I logged in yesterday. As a general gameplay rule, I don't go flagged PvP unintentionally, so this isn't database reproduction from when it was copied if you are suspecting it was copied when flagged. I did, however, cut through Blood Bay and entered the Fall before teleporting out. This was noticed when I logged back in.

    I tried reproducing some obvious stuff:

    1) Left Festival, entered Sicken (pvp pot), left, sicken and entered Owl's Head, logged out, logged in. No change to PvP flag.
    2) Went to Blood Bay, left Blood Bay, logged out on surface map, logged back in. No change to PvP flag.
    3) When to Blood Bay, teleported to Central Brittany, logged out, logged back in. No change to PvP flag.
    4) Got my 500gp/exp from the Oracle, no change to PvP flag.

    Thanks for the updates folks. Since the QA build has been updated, can you please unflag at the Oracle then see if it appears again the next time you patch?

    Hey @Lexie - I unflagged right after I noticed I was flagged -- it hasn't re-appeared yet.

    I logged out unflagged, but logging in after the patch did not cause me to re-flag. I'll keep an eye out, though.
