also, playing while in a car using data, that could also be a big cause for afkers. So, in the car, JUST DONT PLAY.

Only problem remains is what if the person is rekt before he does any dmg or if game crashes? Its happened to me before game crashed and whole team died before i got back in.

Internet problems. Reset your router cause internet speed can play a big part in it. Also, how much empty space your device has, cause the more empty space your device has, the better it can run the app. and how old your device is can affect it as well.

Occasionally, my internet/battery drops while loading a battle. Will I be punished? :(

 

You definitely should, if it happens often enough.:justwait:

AFKrs really hurt their teammates. Hate losing when 1 or 2 are AFK. I'm having IPad crash problems every 5-6 games. Game motion gets jerky and I know a crash is imminent. When the game reloads the battle is usually over or I wake up dead. I know it's not fair to my teammates but I love WOTB and don't want to quit playing. I wonder how many other players have the same problem and are blamed for being negligent or not fully engaging?

Frustrating. Just battled to 7-6 loss in a t-43. Had 2900 damage and 3 kills. Nobody else had more than 1k. Sitting over at spawn our team had two AFK's.  That just bites.

While driving you become hyper alert to surroundings identifying escape routes, and good defensive positions, and realize crap I'm in my car not a tank.

Love the idea,

If you could spend 24 7 on implementing ridding us of these slacked jawed yahoos, we as players would appreciate it! :trollface:

Kidding on the 24 7 of course, but dang, sooner the better.

Thank You

Wait.. I don't understand. WHY would anyone deliberately AFK? What purpose does it serve these "serial AFKers" to do that?

Are they just trolling? But that seems like an awful lot of work to just leave your tank as a sitting duck target for the reds.

 

I get the occasional AFK.. it happened to me two games in a row last night. MAN was I ticked. I wanted to PLAY!

But, you guys are saying there are people who CHOOSE to AFK?

...scratches head.. baffled at that...


Don't be seen. Don't get hit. Choose your shots carefully. And be PATIENT! You have 7 minutes for crying out loud!
Oh.. and don't get hit.  Did I mention "Don't get hit?"... Yah.. don't get hit.

(For someone with a signature like this.. I sure get a lot of "Steel Wall" medals. Ugh.)

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

 

The best solution to that is buy a new device, or don't play until the error is corrected. If it crashes on you in game and your AFK, cover your own tracks and submit a Ticket to note the in-game crash.

I Love it when you call me Big Poppa, I love it when she calls me Big Daddy!

Ok, I understand the issue of afk's and is great what WG is doing about it,but there is also the issue of people that have been unable to enter a battle or get disconected in mid battle. I has happened to me several times especially at times of high volume of players online. No one has spoken about solutions to this. In my case I play on my Ipad Air on ios, and when my game stops midbattle or never loads, I quit the game by force shoutdown and also close the game on background (this second step is crucial for the reload to work). Then you simply open the game and log back in and you will load directly to the battle you were cut off from. This process can take from 20-40 seconds to complete and during that time I am AFK in the battle and them come back. Sometimes i get to do something, other times im already dead. I suggest guidelines so that players can deal with this issues like I did and that could posibly reduce the number of afk's which I think is more due to connection issues rather than people doing it on purpose.
