Its not very hard, 0 meters moved is 0 XP earned, problem fixed.
 

While my T71 choose to window out and watch porn gets more XP than any of the best enemy players, ye sure GG, fair play.
I tell you what it is, it actually takes away the will to try and win and thats a VERY bad thing.
 

Think about new players when they discover this. I can just hope my team win :P and get some XP. Just fix it, if you dont play you cant earn anything.

Come on Solstad, who gets this angry about a video game on a Sunday morning? and you still won.

 

I don't know but maybe he got disconnected, his game crashed or something. Dudu occurs. :teethhappy:

Good thing you made me laugh :)
 

No anger i just find it "strange" to reward people for doing nothing.

But WG already do that. If you completely AFK a couple of battles, at the end of the game your tank explode and you get 0 exp. It just don't start for the first battle, as many thing can happen that force you to go afk.

Why punish someone that gives you a greater challenge!

You already get zero XP and credits for repeated offenses. Same with deserting a battle.

 

I'm sure you've never, ever, ever disconnected from battle/had a powercut/ lost internet connection/had the wife shout you/have a kid need attention/had a phone call/someone at the door.

 

:sceptic:

There is an afk system. But like with the old team damage system. It takes one or two idles here and there as a mishap. Disconnects and crashes etc, and don't punish them for it. But get 3 or 4 in a short time and you start to get 0 xp and credits along with a warning. Keep at it after that, and you get a temp ban. The system has been there for years as a simple solution to fight idle bot farming that was a huge issue 6-7 years ago.

I could agree if it only is for "free to play" players. It sounds wrong to punish paying costumers.

And if that happens, I will happily take the 0 xp penalty.

 

Whatever system WG has in play, it clearly doesn't work because almost every game in TX I play, there are some 'heroes' with a 41% w/r and 50 wn8 or thereabouts over 80K games. You only can make that happen by going AFK pretty much every game you play and even then it is something of an achievement without bot software.

I wouldn't mind getting 0xp/credits or pay full repair cost everytime I fail to connect or get disconnected from server.

If he was trying to passive spot from his starting spawn, he deserves 0xp

There is also people who exist that can plan 10 minutes ahead to know wether they have time for a WOT battle or not.

None is saying its not okay to have mishaps, or real life happening. 

 

But then i'm sure the player also dosen't mind getting 0 xp, while having "hugged" his wife :B  .. All OP is saying is, that AFK/idling shouldn't contribute with xp to a grind - as the player literally didn't contribute.

Just making stuff up isn’t a good argument, you do realise that right?

Not making anything up here. Want to see a few replays? Why do you think I keep repeating that WG needs to up its 'game' against BOT/AFK players? You know full well I can't post the replays here, or post links here, but if you really want to see, I will PM you a few games.

You could be charitable and give the word thereabouts some latitude, but that would require at least two things.
