    Default WF Reporting AFK

    Reporting AFK dose not work. Bot are made so then do get the boot. Premades are exploiting broken system to kick people they do not like,have bad gear, or are use a spec they do not like.

    example: I was reported afk by a premade in weekend whitefall. I know this because they told me they were going to do it. I was only heals took the first stone and charged up near there base staying with group. They did not like this so said they were reporting afk. I then stayed in middle and we wiped 2nd wave. I returned stone to our base. Get back to middle a stone poped i pick it up and return it to base. Get back to middle and booted from game for being afk.

    example: I have seen people running spec people did not like and some one will said in raid everyone report this guy afk when he dies. It is not always possible to be in combat in a min after a death. you dont know a timers on you and you have to buff and then find some one in wf which can take running around 3/4 the map at times especially in low population games

    Also 1 hour ban is in game so jumping on an alt cost me 2 hrs of weekend extra prestige game play for doing nothing wrong and all csr has to say is report a bug if you think there was a bug.

    Angry

    Bump.
    Last night a guy from Bloodiron was standing next to Defiant boss AFK and ppl didn't even bother to report him.After I said his name (Hoog-something) some reported him but nothing.

    Then he came and said "Was making tea" (yeah right!) and we won and he got 4800 favor and the rest of as that where fighting 2900 MAX!

    So are you ppl interesting reporting players or you like bust your ars winning and the AFK guy gets double favor AND prestige from you?

    Open the map every 2 min, see the same dots in the same spot, right click in their names and report AFK!That easy.

    Every AFK'r I've ever caught and called out that was at their computer watching chat has given an excuse, but of course they keep on AFK'ing and not playing the WF after being caught.

    The standing by the boss is an exploit that's been used for some time, they get increased rewards for doing it, just like what you saw at the end of the match.

    I was in a WF last night where the players were openly talking about an obvious AFK'r who never moved off the spawn point. Said AFK'r was still there when the match ended and received their prize, so seems I was the only one who reported them as afk. Looks like most players have come to expect and accept this behavior so don't even bother trying to do something about it.

    That would be awesome if it could be used as a homing beacon for a pack of ravenous dogs.

    I sent in a petition on a guy that had been afking for a day. I was surprised on how fast the petition was answered and they started an investigation. I ultimately don't know what action they took, but I left for a few hours and when I came back I didn't see him in anymore games.

    Being in combat doesn't svae you from being kicked by the AFK tool. I know this because I was griefed with it myself for using my inquisicar pvp variant in a warfront and some whiny rogue decided that my top spot on heals was why we were losing the game. >.>

    The trick is getting 3 peoploe to go through the trouble of actually clicking the bloody tool.

    And btw, report the people who openly grief you with it by name right after you get out of the warfront. Screenshot the chat even as insurance. It works - said ******bag rogue yelled at me when I saw him again 3 days later, angry because he got suspended. Delicious jerkwad tears, mrmmm...

    Well, now that I help my team more by being afk gaining favor so I can get to r6 faster and actually be USEFUL in a wf against r8...

    I used to be pretty vigilant about reporting people afk who were actually afk, even writing a gm report on a couple of players. Now I'm r2 and feeding the opposing faction free favor without being able to cast a single spell to help my team. Instant flourish, ruin? Not even on timer after I begin to be attacked and click the button on my keyboard, because I'm already dead.

    Why bother having an afk mechanism at all anymore?

    He was probably defending our boss from the guardians, it just so happens you get an extra 3-4 favor a kill while defending the boss. You may call it afking, but when a group of 7 tries the boss, and Im the only one around and proceed to wipe the group up (with boss help of course) Ive effectiverly saved the game for us. Id be careful calling people by the boss as afking, they may be playing defenswe. (The same as in WFS Im by the crystal to defend it.)

    If the watching chat and responding then they are clearly not AFK.

    so what we have determined:

    report afk does not work on bots or afkers

    report afk does work as a vote kick

    Vote kick with an hour long debuff, yes. That's all it gets used for.
