    Default How to not get kicked while AFK in a Warfront

    Took this video last night. They were basically macroing some abilities every few seconds. I am assuming the seconds they aren't using an ability they are clicking the warfront to attempt to requeue and click where the Join Battle button would pop up when they are ready to enter. This is ******** BTW, it was bad enough that we were already down a man, but down 3 is devastating. Stylekrong and Urfired.

    I agree they need to figure out a solution for this. More and more bad customs from WoW players are seen every day, and I really don't want pricks like that ruining this game...

    They need to dedicate time and money to the small details, the ones that really tick people off.

You're in a rift with the toon your toon could look like. What's in your hand? Back at me. I have it, it's an epic weapon. Look again, the weapon is now enchanted. Anything is possible when your toon is in RIFT and not in WoW. I'm on a turtle.

    AFKers are leeching all wrong. The way to do it is to stealth up, run around the center of BG and collect every kill. You finish number 1 in favor gained every match, and for doing nothing.

    There is an easy fix for this, it's already in game. Just use the same system that rifts use, participation meter.

    Fix: Create an RvR zone and make it just as good as warfronts at getting PvP gear. Let them mass afk in warfronts by themselves.

    Darque - Defiant Mage - Baroness - Sunrest

    It would also fail miserably. The rift contribution system simply takes into account how many times you use an ability during a rift. That's it. AFKers would just spam abilities.

    Any contribution system would need to take into account damage done, healing done, damage received, kills, objectives, etc etc. And even that would be exploitable. If anything, throwing some bans out (and announcing that you're perma-banning people) would be more effective.

    And people would be punished for defending rather than just running around and doing as much damage and healing as possible.

    I really don't understand people who AFK. First, you get much more Favor if you win the match than if you lose. And 2nd, isn't the point of playing a game...to actually play the game? So these people are going to AFK their way to PVP rewards, then have no idea how to actually win at PVP.

    Just need a voting system to kick AFK players. Getting kicked twice should force the player to log-off so they can't repeatedly log into warfronts. I'd also be in favor of their accounts getting locked for a period of time.

    It would be abused. "Uh that stupid noob isn't doing enough, let's flag him as AFK."
