When are WG going to do something about the players who are constantly afk or announce they dont "play this map". From yesterday and today Ive met up with three players over 6 games who either remain afk or quit back to garage after whining about the map. End result - probable loss (these are decent green players) and cost to team for ammo, repairs etc.

 

I reported on guy 2 weeks ago for quitting in one game then drowning 4 hours later - WGs response - our automated system takes care of these players. The guy was playing the day after.

Why should I fund these players please ??

That'd be a bit callous surely?

Don't mind AFK's u never know might be distracted, on phone, lost connection etc it's the ones that take themselves out by drowning etc. Reckon these should be flogged with sprout stalks.

Thinking about this shouldn't AFKers whip themselves with flageolet beans?

Last week or the week before I met an afk bob (bot?) TWICE during the same session. Reported him and got the same old c&p support answer. Surprise, surprise - he's still playing.

Conclusion (not only from this case): WG doesn't care at all. So you aren't only funding those bobs, you are also funding a completely lazy developer who earns money for providing a service that would led every real-world-company into bankruptcy within the first year.

 

edit: No idea why your suggestion is to turn them blue. That's just... stupid.

I really don't see the problem here... if map sucks I go afk/quit...if I can't get my mission I go afk or drown. It is pointless for me to waste my time on match that will just give me nothing. And teamplay argument is just silly... there is 0% teamplay in wot randoms and usually around 50% of team really does nothing so one more doesn't make any difference.

 

Nowadays I skip maybe 20-30% of matches and wot is actually feeling nice game for a change.

So this thread is about you. You should get permabanned. Nobody needs asocial egomaniacs in a multiplayergame.

Should be easy to fix afk'ers... If you play two zero damage games in a tank in a row, lock the tank for an hour or something. If it happens with several tanks within a session, ban the account for a day...


Especially during these x5 events the amount of afk players is too damn high.

That's why the OP mentions serial afk'ers. We all get a ringing doorbell, phonecall or whatever every once in a while.

There is quite the difference between asocial egomaniacs and people who are just bad at the game.

You belong to the 5% (?) best players in this game, you should be a leading example, not another random bob.

 

btw: After thinking about it, I don't actually believe that you skip 20-30% of your matches.

And please tell me why I should take this game more seriously because I am better than x% of players? It is a game and I play it just as seriously as computer game requires. And random bobs will be random, who cares since whole fing game is based on RNG and random.

Maybe rather than reaching for the pitchforks you should consider that WG do actually expect you to suffer through some appalling un-fun matchups that are tedious and unprofitable. Nothing wrong with someone voting with their feet, when it is an 'ing casual game in every sense of the word (and by design no less)!

It is a team play concept. When you are going AFK, your 14 team members have to do unequally more to get the same result. Imagine a football player deciding not to play at the start of a match because he dislikes the other team or the field...

In fact your selfish and egocentric attitude is an immediate disadvantage for 14 others. Please go play solo based games, like Tetris.

if they are 100% idle from start. Or leave early etc. There is indeed an automated system. That works the same way team damage does. Do it to often in a short period of time, then they will get 0 xp, and them a temp ban. Quit 2-3 games early in a row and you will be warned in the garage. Do it one or two times more. And you will be suspended. Idle works the same way.

 

That system tho won't work if they sit in base after moving 50m because "they don't play this map". Or if they just want to "guard" cap. But if they leave early, and do it often enough. System will take care of it. As I have seen my share of those a few games in a row after 3 AM. Only seen 0 xp on one of them do. And that was the game he actually did something in after seeing him 3-4 times doing nothing.

Yeah... but the fact is that usually around 1/4 of team is going to die in first minute with 0 damage done anyways so one more has very little impact on the results. Or should we ban all people under certain amount of average damage or smt like that? Also since mm is random you might have (and usually do) uber team of good players vs. team of total noobs. Quitting the top team will not change results, quitting the noob team will not change results.

 

Also football is bad analogy: for a real game of footsie you need 22 people to show up, spend about 2 hours in the field and then go back. So there is quite a bit of time invested all around. In a game of WoT there is about 3-4 mins time invested by the participants, so one match is as relevant as a drop of water in ocean.
