I wonder how you will deal with players who get booted before the battle count down...reboot and rejoin 90 seconds into the battle! Im sure I have appeared afk...but Im not afk! And by the way...off topic...how do you justify the $35 price hike for the huge chest of gold (28000+6000 bonus)? The buying power of gold has not increased, the game lags and has issues all-kinds, your called the number one on-line game but that should lead you to treat or spoil your clientele...not smash them in the head with a real dollar ($35) price hike for imaginary gold!!!!

Perhaps incorporating friendly fire. I think this is long overdue in the game. You wouldn't gain points but you wouldn't lose ammo credits either. What ever happened to robot arty and perhaps random anti tank mines. It would make gameplay a little more realistic. Thanks for a great game!

They actually used to have friendly fire in the game but it  was a disaster. One person would bump into another and it would result in a team fight b4 the real battle. And of course there is always the jerk out there who thinks its funny to shoot their team in the back as they race to the front. No sir, I'm glad they got rid of that.

Can AFK players be replaced in the first 15 seconds of battle?

 

I think that would be an amazing answer to that problem, yeah they say they will be punished in long term but in the meanwhile we have to play unfair matches, it would be amazing if after 15 they don't move their tanks, they are kicked and replaced with a new player

If you DO move at all, it should be a sign that something isn't right - a device crash, real life, or something of the sort. If you never move - bad bad. I had a game that I should have won that didn't work out 'cause I had to rescue a toddler... way more important than finishing the game, even though I was disappointed in the outcome.

Fine. But why not make it easier to report horrible people who hurl hate speech in game? I just tried to file a complaint as I have in the past, but the process is not smooth. Please tell me I don't have to resize screenshots just to get them to support. I won't tolerate hate speech in game, and will do everything in my power to discourage it. But you have to at least make it so that it's not a huge undertaking on my side. 

 

in my 5k games I never seen soemthing I felt should be reported.

There is going to be a lot more afk s now that old pairing system is back.  I can't believe people liked the old system and they are bringing it back.  You can't blame someone for quiting when they are fighting people 2 tiers higher and cant even penetrate the back of a top tier tank.

How about for the 1st  punishment. 200 games with a big yellow stripe down the middle of their tank.

WARGAMING

 

What are you going to do with people that have long connection time trying to get on a game? Sometimes it takes the hole game to log onto server and by that time game is over. I have had this happen to me at lest once a week? Or what about the disconnection off server during game play this happens to me every other game sometime two to three times in one game? I don't think someone should be ban for three days if they are trying to connected to game or got disconnected during a game! Far as I am concerned its your servers that are the issue here!

 

 

What you need wargaming is a voting system! Someone on the afk team cast a vote to kick afk player off the team. Everyone else on team can vote yes or no! Once vote is majority then server looks for a player before kicking afk off game!

 

NOT ROCKET SCIENCE! 

 

Senator_Ratbat "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".

 

I am not paying you guys as a premium member for you to come up with some brilliant new algorithm/code for afker's when all you have to do is put in a VOTING system!

It stands for Away From Keyboard.  "AFK" is commonly used in text chat rooms, such as:

 

Me: hey Charlie, 

Me: Charlie, u there?

Someone else: he's AFK

Me: oh

 

In WOTB, it refers to a tank player that isn't driving their tank, because they walked away from the game, or the game crashed, or the internet blew up.

So how do you differentiate between afk and connection problems?  I have had a significant number of times when ping went through the roof and I couldn’t do anything.  It really pisses me off.  I am not certain where the problem is but it is not that I got in a battle then did something else.

I find when that happens and I am using wifi, I just flip to settings, turn wifi off and then immediately back to on.  Start game again.  Takes 5 seconds and always works.

Fix your servers Wargaming !!!

I just got another brand new tablet first two games same old B s! I been disconnected from both games to return to have been killed! So its not my tablets or Internet connection at all. Wargaming you have issues with your servers not AFK's STOP making excuses and fix your pathedic mistakes! stop blaming others for your pathedic updates that tend to crash or glitch!!!!!

You are the worst game builders I have ever sponsored!!

Last couple of days this problem has gotten really really worse for me. Seems every second game there is an afk issue with a team mate..at least one..sometimes 2. Lots of games today where a player on my team moves into a hiding position where the enemy cant see them but they cant shoot at the enemy either and then they just seem to go afk..it is like it is done on purpose. Not saying it is but that is what it feels like since they actually moved to a spot where nobody can see them and then go dormant. Hard to win a battle with that going on. If it is high ping and lag causing an issue fine but the player seeened to have no issues going to that spot and working their tank into a position where they can hide but yet can cant shoot at any targets.

Can we ban potatoes?

I actually won games because people just want to kill an afk.
