    Default AFKers

    PLEASE do something Trion ..you report and nothing happens ..you get players standing there doing nothing throughout the match. Your down one or more players and it makes for a miserable experience for those who are there to participate in a warfront and of course your ELO takes a huge dive. You speak to them and they laugh at you because they know Trion will not do anything.

    Only answer is to premade now since PUGS are no longer viable on EU warfronts. You cannot get rid of AFKs and the killing quest just helps them get stuff without trying. But will Trion do anything ... nope. They love leeches.

    There is nothing that can be done about it since 3.0

    You don't need favor, prestige, or anything that is rewarded by warfronts. Only thing you need is the win.

    Even if you get many to report someone AFK, you stop their favor and prestige gains. Remember you don't need that? So why even bother reporting them AFK?

    If they do change the AFK system and start porting people out who are AFK, again that will do nothing. People are only going AFK in the losing warfronts and will happily be kicked out.

    Report player to kick in WF's is like the close elevator door button, I question its validity but some people insist on hitting it, even more than once at times.

    But would they be happily kicked out if the desertion time was 45mins to an hour? Also the main reason for AFK is not the win but kills collected. You know leeching for the weekly quest. If they do not participate then their win is going to be so much less likely and more of a pain.

    The kills quest should be replaced with a 2x5 wins in any of the warfronts not in that weeks guns excluding Port Scion ie. 5 wins in black garden plus five wins in antechamber. Those that are not in the current guns at the time.

    You're still forcing people to do what they don't want to do. You'll still have AFKs.

    They have plenty of other stuff to do ... if they want to be there then don't AFK ..otherwise they suffer the consequences of their actions.

    On a side note, the new Mortal Kombat deals with quitters the best way. Friend just had someone rage quit in the middle of the game and above the "player has left the session" message, his player stands with a fist in the air with the bloody letters "Quitality"

    I'm still waiting for an Akuma rage quit for the pun, "was that your wrath of the raging quit?"

    Oh, quitters and AFK'ers need to be shamed more like the old days.

    There's no real point in complaining directly to the person to ask them to participate. Like you said, they'll laugh becuz they know trion will do nothing. Don't get me wrong, it is messed up. There are sometimes one or more spots that could've gone to a person that actually pvps.

    Unfortunately, some people are jerks that do stuff like that. Even if Trion made it so that if you stand in one place for too long like in IAs, the player would just move around, like one or two steps and stay to earn marks and gear that they clearly do not deserve.

    When people complain about the AFKers in warfronts its usually not in a polite way, its usually in a troll way insulting them with various name calling. Best case scenario they'll continue to AFK.

    We need a new Raid mark, instead of heal/tank/squirrel we need a potato mark. You mark the AFK with a potato that gets removed when they attack/heal.

    People would still AFK, but at least it would be funny.

    Except doing a premade basically guarantees that everyone else on your team will be AFK. It's really a no-win situation.

    The best solution is just to not PvP. You'll be a happier person for it.
