There has been an Afk in almost every game for the last hour. Seriously, it is ruining the quality of play. I have messaged some and most unabashedly admit to it and don't care. Please, WG. MAKE THEM CARE. FINE THEM, GIVE THEM SUSPENSIONS. DO SOMETHING, PLEASE!?!!!

The Asia server is taking too long... They need to make a decision so we can improve AFKs in here.

AFKs can be very frustrating on the Green team.  On the Red team I never mind them.

 

I agree though, something could use to be done.  a 40%~er is better then a 0%-er...


Today I went to the bathroom and forgot my phone.

ya well 80% of the teams today might as well be afk. These people are so stupid! some really really poor performance from your average pub potatoes. Thats even more frustrating, to have alive tanks that dont do the team any good. Where do these people come from? How many cans of lead based paint did they eat as a child? Is there an autism epidemic? Tier ten, as usual, is the biggest  cesspit of them all.

Sometimes it's not your fault when you go AFK.

Seriously though, a lot of times it's really not their fault, lot of the time people enter the battle half way thorough because of WG' s bugs that makes their game crash out they had to do something. One of my friends always enters the battle 30 seconds after anyone else does for some reason. Last update brought crashing bugs for me before they fixed it, and as expected in the hours after the update release, there wrre game crashing bugs for other people! WG needs to step up their wavy and triple test these updates before releasing them!

Yes today the fame was just about to begin when my iPad screen went black. Tried to get back on but app wouldn't open. Still won't.  I'm sure my T-62 was Afk in that game and it wasn't my fault.  Internet working fine so must be wot servers.  I'm not trying to be Afk!

Please fix this problem. Thanks love the game!

Banning anyone who goes afk, WILL NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM, why? Because simply its not simply something they can control, its just a game, why you heff to be mad? If you really want to prevent afks, you would want to make it virtually impossible for people to be afk, banning people ain't gonna solve the problem, its just going to piss off a large portion of the playerbase, we didn't go banning failtoons left and right, and that worked out perfectly. 

 

For example, I am playing and during that, my mom tells me to take out the garbage, and because I value my mom and my family more than the game, I go to take out the garbage, and if you ban me, guess what? I will STILL value my family more than the game, and I would STILL rather go afk if there is something urgent IRL. See? You would not solve the problem.

Trash = URGENT IRL ? Oh please ... 

 

URGENT = immediate medical and safety issues. If you or a family member ins't in imminent danger, it isn't " urgent ". Talk to some first responders or people who serve your city, county, state, country to learn what " urgent" is. 

 

If you're a kid ... How about you: 

 

Take out the trash and do the chores before you play.

Finish your homework first.

Don't start a game if dinner is going to be ready in two min.

Don't start a game if it is lights out in three min.

...

Don't start a game if you have to do a baby burp in two minutes. 

:justwait:

 

And turn off facebook and what not social distractions on your device. Do whatever else you may have to do first, and then play the game, and just the game.

Fine, I may have used a bad example, but hopefully you're still bright enough to get my point, banning afks will not stop afks. ******

:ohmy: ... let me see about turning a light on, I must have a bulb somewhere, don't I?

Now, did anybody ever say that anything WG is entertaining, or any of the ideas that the forum-ers have brought forward will " STOP AFKs "?

As in stop and prevent it all-together?

No. The point is not about penalizing the occasional AFK, due do dropped internet etc. The point is about serial AFKs, especially those below and lower 40% WR guys who have worked their way up with passive play, and go AFK as low tier or high tier ... when there's a drop of rain falling out of the sky. Dealing with the worst offenders should go a long way in dealing with the issue. Because it is quite rare that I see a higher WR guy drop out from the get go.


The only non-punitive and actually most team "fair" thing I have proposed many months ago was that the server would detect AFKs at startup, and replace them.

 

Doesn't matter whether the AFK is willful (don't like the MM, screw this), family (must take the trash out), game crash, internet crash, etc. The server would simply detect that player X hasn't driven 0-n feet away from spawn within 30-60 secs, no turret movement, etc. - and consequently take that player out of the game and spawn-in another player, from the queued up guys. Guess what, player Y you get dropped into a live battle already in progress! nn secs have passed! Fight! ...

 

So, the AFK gets 0 xp 0 credits etc., another player gets to join a game already 30-45-60 secs in progress (whatever would seem reasonable to WG) and the allied team actually gets a full working team.   And, if the AFK player x was due to some small game crash or internet drop, he will simply rejoin the queue and start another battle. 

For added effect:

- the AFK could be blown up by an arty shell

or

- there could be a self destruct sequence initiated thing, the AFK player gets a countdown timer as a last chance to get his but in gear ... if not BOOM.
Both cases the AFK would be on the hook for complete tank repair. As a small reminder they were AFK.
Downside would be that some kids would do that just for kicks, just like the drowning your tank thing. Hence punitive damages so people don't feel like they can get away with it for free.

 
Now, when it comes to AFK crashes. Why doesn't the game detect improper shut down and send a little crash log to WG, the next time you start up? Vs this long winded stupid create a ticket, wait for response, dig for technical details after hooking it up to a computer thing. Even if there's a sand box thing, at a minimum they should be able to transmit some basics and focus repairs based on that. 

 :B Bright enough?
