Player vs. Player, the Newb Curse?

We were in a Warsong Gulch Battleground tonight. Started off pretty good, we got a capture right out of the box. Looked like a quick victory. Then two different (I think) idiot toons from Jubei’Thos server picked up the flag, two different times. Both of them went afk long enough together for the timer to expire on the battleground. We killed the horde flag carriers at least 10 times, and these (two?) idiots were never around to capture the flag a second time, which would have insured we won the BG. Finally, with about 30 seconds to go, the second one chats “What do I do with the flag?” and drops it. Luckily another ally picked it up, and the timer expired before the horde could return their flag and capture ours. Is it possible that someone could be that ignorant of gameplay at level 80? I find that hard to believe.

Facebook status posted in the Frosty Wyrm Riders guild group. I’m modifying the group to be a general fandom group (August 7th, 2018) and adding my old Star Trek club members to it, as well as fan friends who know how to play nice with others. All the old posts are leaving us.
