I just wanted to update the community on what we're going to be doing about the serial AFK issue. As I mentioned in my last producer post we wanted to handle this systematically so we can better take action against serious offenders. Part of this process is building a profile of the serial-AFK player and right now I have the first half of the data and we will be reconciling this with another batch of stats. By reviewing the two results from different time periods we can be more confident that the players we identify as fitting the profile will receive appropriate action. These actions will range from a 3 day ban to a perma ban.

 

This will be a living process as we continue to refine the AFK profile. There may be offenders that fall through the dragnet so if you see something say something (in the form of a support ticket)

I would love to see something like tap and hold on the players name listed in the team panel screen to pop up a window which gives you option to report the player.

Similar to whats on PC version. 

 

edit: Makes it easier and faster. With the current system now, I just keep taking screenshots of the players that block/troll/afk and I want to report them but I never report because its kinda tedious and I just let them go. And let the screenshots build on my device, eating away at its memory.

Agreed. I would like to see this in Blitz as well. I also want to have a cool "recognition" system at the end of a match the way Overwatch does it (if you played the Beta you know what I mean).

I would like to note that some devices have serious problems when trying to reload the game. Leaving them AFK for the whole game.

Thanks for working on this. While some afk is inherent considering the platform, no doubt a group of serial afkers has harmed the game.

 

Now, about being able to leave the ammo selection bar open...

WG is taking another step in the right direction. 

As a customer, I have serious respect for WG because it listens to it's players!

 

Now, about those marks of excellence on tank barrels...

 

Wait, sorry, dozed out for a moment.

It's about time something was finally done to deal with this issue. Are we allowed to know what constitutes a serial AFKer? Or is that top secret information?

There once was an AFKer in blitz

Senator Ratbat made a post

that was reason to toast

and the forum was thrilled to bits

No it's only for serial AFKers. Meaning they afk almost every battle.

Haha. Great! Good! Awesome! It's certainly a long time coming!:izmena:

 

Finally, serial AFKers will be getting what they deserve, and it's not a minute too soon!:justwait:

 

The game will be better without these despicable characters in the game.:playing:

the thing about that is that some cromwell drivers will end up reporting a kv-2 driver for "HACKS YOU ONE SHOTTED ME"
