    Default Any word on if trion is going to stop the mass afking in warfronts

    Is trion going to start doing something about the 2-4 people in every warfront that are afk jumping on the spot?

    i started a support ticket which know1 seems to care about answering these guys are ruining wf's.

    Bah, AFKing is weak. The better method is as a warlock/chloro, you can just life-tap yourself and heal and rack up tons of healing and damage points! $$$

    Read as: warfronts are a joke anyway, who cares if people afk.
    -According to a Facebook quiz, I'm a genius.

    Um, I care. On the defiant side we have 1-2 afkers every round while the guardians seem to have a full squad. I don't appreciate playing 8v10 or 13v15 every time.

    I've sent a ticket in with no response. It's been two days now and it's still unresolved.

    AFKers aint the problem, you dont have heals or buffs you lose. One afker there and here doesnt affect anything. Funny part is that you can be afk in the middle of the fight its truly so ******ed. Take a cup of coffee and make a couple phone call and go back in the action.

    Even on guardian side we have professional AFKers and there is always the problem of people leaving the fight in the middle of the wf.
    They should implement a function to kick these people or that turns them red so at least i can chop them!
    And a minimal contribution to earn favor would help a lot, because i m sick of looking at people under trees like campers. Give me the chance to kill them so at least i can get some favor from them and not the contrary.

    Why the hell wouldnt you AFK..

    Example

    AFK in Black Garden...
    Lose Really quickly, say 6-7 mins for loss.
    You Recieve 50 Favour and 3200 XP as a reward

    So you do 9 or 10 of these an hour thats 28.8k to 32k per Hour.. and 500 favour just FOR LOSING!!!!!! and doing absolutly nothing...

    BONUS!!!

    This just might be the most insane logic I've seen in quite a while.
    If you don't have heals or buffs you lose, but AFKers are fine.

    Your AFKers are healing and buffing you? That's awesome.

    Usually there're no healers or buffers.

    Well at LvL 40-49 I get 4.2K EXP for losing and 6K for winning. If Guardians are constantly winning as they have been in my BG im talking like 40 wins in row. People start to not give a damn at all...right at this moment there are 6 people /sleep literally in GY

    just saw another thread about this... I really enjoy warfronts, and I've not see too much of this. So what are some suggestions to fix this?

    AFK for x minutes you are removed from the warfront, no exp?
    Make a minimum contribution % for healing and damage ?

    Its an easy fix

    Give XP and favour based on score..

    If teh score is 500 - 10, teh losing team gets 10 XP (or something making it not worthwile to lose

    But is the score is 500 - 490 then the losing team gets 3200 XP winning 5000k...

    This wil soon make teh AFKers not bother coming into these PVP arenas

    The AFKers will just assume the teammates will make a close fight.

    Defiants on my server are constantly on the receiving end of those kinds of scores and that's with all 10 of us getting rolled. Do this and I can confidently guarantee no Defiants will queue Garden on my cluster.

    By that reasoning, everyone would leave, but then everyone would come back because the AFKers are gone, but then the AFKers would come back, and everyone would leave again.

    See the picture there? In the end, it's something that wouldn't work. The real thing is that a reporting system needs to work, and those people need to be ousted.
