    Yeah I have to agree with the op here. Warfronts are hard enough with uncoordinated people let alone having a numbers disadvantage due to afk'ers.

    Possible fix could be to implement a right click report function, or even a vote to kick player from a warfront.

    I agree completely. For hours now a badly needed cleric has just Stood in the spawn area jumping up and down. He could have cast a few heals with just as few button pushes

    Do like all the others and kick ppl who stay in spawn area for over 20 secs or dont gain any points in 1 min.

    /sign on that

    Haven't had a problem with it personally but it doesn't matter how often it happens, it should be punished every single time. Actively ruining the game for others needs to be punished.

    /sign as well. I did see somewhere in the patch notes that Trion did adjust the "AFK Timer" in warfronts.

    along with this .. SOmething else needs adjusting..

    How about the players that dont accept the Que and enter the Warfront in a timely Manner. For the First 2 Minutes of the Warfront....... Outnumbered, cause its looking for other people to fill the spot.

    Not quite sure what the "Fix" should be, but I've seen in Other MMO's, this not being the case., at least not for that Long of Time frame to fill the Players.

    I experienced this for the first time yesterday. I would name and shame, but it's probably in the eula not to. But he would put himself in a corner and then never move again.

    Hope this patch helps

    Yeah, some guy Ploo, I think his name was or looking like that and I'm not sure what server, would go afk in WFs. I went into codex and hesheit went running into a rock the whole game, after that I get a black garden wf pop and I go in. I go in help the team, die once and respawn, ploo is still at the spawn running into the first stone figure. You know how if you run into a wall head on it stops you, but if your at an angle you run along it, he was slowly running along it and fell off only to get stuck auto running behind a tree.

    Talk about poor sportsmanship, we won the 2 games he was afk but what a jerk just soaking up the exp and favor.

    An automated kick is nice if the player is idle for a specific period of time. A better solution in my opinion would be to implement some sort of "vote to kick" function. Something where players cannot be kicked in the first few minutes of a WF, this I feel would keep players from being kicked simply due to their level. But allow players to vote-kick players a few minutes after a match has started if the player is not contributing to the team. What do you guys think?

    To be honest I've probably noticed less than 10 AFK'ers in all the WF's I have done. In spite of that, I agree with the OP. AFK'ers should not be allowed. An easy fix would be to auto boot people who are afk for 30 seconds or more.

    The problem is they macro a jump or cast every 1-2 min and "blam", they are no longer flagged as afk. They need to boot anyone in the spawn "area" that doesn't move from that area in 30s. I think that would work better, but I'm sure these exploiters will find a way around that too.

    Then they just afk somewhere close to the spawn but out of the way of the enemy players. The sad part is that there's enough scumbags out there to even need rules for this.

    I agree, it's bad. Problem is, all it takes is one afk to really throw off the balance.

    I've been writing down the names of the AFKs I see. Time or a thread of shame?

    Grubby@Aedraxis
    Jerrick@spitescar
    Zeila@spitescar
    Burnontoast@spitescar - this dude was just slowing walking around, yet responding in chat.
    rhaith@seastone - all last night! this dude was randomly self buffing to stay in the match
    Kitiana@Belmont - repeat offender
