    Do Warhammer solution - kick people after 1 minute of no activity and give them quitters debuff.

    The bots get past this by constantly running\jumping. Same for people alt-tabbing and just popping back every X minutes or watching TV and pressing the jump button >.<

    WoW's "idle" solution killed raw AFK bots.

    If you don't enter combat in x minutes, you start a kick countdown.

SImple and I like it as protection from abuse by anyone, specially botters.

    Captcha when you queue sounds best to me and least disruptive overall.
    because this would annoy too many unguilty people. even if vote capcha system is abusible by some mofo, those mofos are still minority, most of the people will use it to kick real bots and it would not touch/annoy other people.
    All these dastardly ideas about vote kicking etc. Why? All that is needed is one simple fix. No reward for no contribution.
    because its not hard to program bot to do some contribution.

    You can now report AFK teammates in a Warfront. When enough of the team has reported someone as AFK, they will have a short period to prove themselves by engaging the enemy or supporting the team. If they fail to prove themselves, they will be banished!
    yay. now bots just need to programm their random attack or random healing but now trion will think that they solved the problem, yeyyy.
    This must be Gersh.
    Stop trolling.
    Die. Just die.

    Default New rank 5 afk bot

    The other day Daser on Byriel, got a shard first achievement, out for blood, for killing 25000 players. The only thing is, is that he has been an afk bot for weeks, 24 hrs a day, running the same script in every warfront. He has been reported well over 100 times by probably more then 100 people. Out of about 250 warfronts that i have been in with him, he has actually done more then bot ONCE. Trion doesn't care.

    This is really easy to solve in the short term.

    1) Get a single GM once an hour to go through every open warfront.
    2) Have the gm strip all players currently afking of every bit of gear, plat and reputation.
    3) Give each player the title "I'm an AFKing noob" which can't be removed on all toons they currently own and any they make in the future.

    We'll have clean warfronts in less than a day.
