Its 2.0, and still AFK's are everywhere....

 

KV2 plat with Stealth on Fort Despair (apt title)...in a tier 8 game. Stealth did 1.5k dmg, I did 3.5k dmg. We lost by a tiny margin, partly because our Tiger P could not even make 1 pen on a Black Prince. But the main reason was our Tiger 2 (34%er) was AFK all game.

 

He still got 138 XP. Rewarded still, for nothing.

 

What a joke.

If I (or Stealth) had done another 140 dmg - Stealth & I would have carried a tier 8 game in our derp 6 platoon.

 

We might still have won if our noob Tiger P had made 1 pen shot on the BP. And our AFKer would have got even more XP....

I haven't seen much AFKs since clans came.

But still,

Devs bring back the exploding AFK bug.

Exploding AFK might still reward the players.

 

Its 2.0 - by now, negative XP/credits system should be in place. Yes technical issues will affect some playes, but everyone will know they aren't delliberately AFK...

 

Personally, any player over 45% WR who is AFK, and has a reasonable looking garage, I assume had a technical issue.

Did you report the player ?

 

You understand that you have to submit 2 screenshot from different times during the game. The screens need to prove that the player did not move.  

 

Did someone in the forum ever spend the effort to report someone for AFK  ?

I can assure you - he has been reported.

 

I didn't get in game screenshots as I was too busy doing 3.5k dmg....

How do you get screenshots? Do you need to download another ap? I've seen some players afk most of the game then decide to move at the last minute.

Depends on your device...

 

For AFK have to be at least two pics so the  clock shows the difference. However sometimes i'm playing so can't screenshot in game - i therefore screenshot their game score (zero shots, zero dmg) and their profile summary (alarms bells ring for 40%ers...).

This is sad.  I agree that afkers should be banned or at the very least have zero credits.  Cmon devs what gives? You promised us a solution a long long long long time ago.                                                         P.s. Hey Pimp!  Forums seems quiet these days.

Give nothing for AFK

If you have any concerns regarding the game or reports of AFK players, send a PM with uncensored evidence and it'll be passed on. :)

Had two AFK's at Lost Temple, a KV-13 and a T34, while rolling in a Tier VI Medium platoon.

 

I took screenshots and after the battle I checked their profiles. Both mid-high 40s WR in general and for those tanks.

 

I made the decision that they experienced technical issues so no CS ticket sent.

 

It happens, and although 2 in one battle sucks I'm not gonna bust their nuts over it.

 

However, I have sent in multiple tickets over time on pro-AFKers and WGs response has always, although sometimes quite delayed, resulted in a positive outcome as far as I'm concerned.

I report AFK players all the time. I don't think anything is done about it by Blitz because there are so many of them.


How bold you are from afar.

I hope there is a formal AFK prevention system implemented soon. Its high time...

Is this your general observation or are you blaming me...? Haha

 

The forum is only as good as the community's collective contributions.

 

I'd say most vehicles have been reviewed, 2.0 was generally not buggy, and we're all so fed up with AFKs, there just are not many new things to talk about.

I don't blame them - I'm scared of OP's new Banhammer..!

 

Maybe the trolls did add a spark to things, but I think the forum is friendlier since the ban on bile.
