If you think AFKing in STFs was bad....
 
...wait till you see what happens in 20 man fleet actions in a couple of days.

15 Starfleet captains doing nothing while 5 noobs do the work.

bravo, Cryptic.

no fail FA with 1440 dilthium - just wait a few days till AFK players start spamming them like mad - sure you might get the top prize but watch how long they soon will take to complete.

And people thought AFKing was bad in STF - you haven't seen anything yet!! That grind is going to get messy real soon.

I can see the bots on the horizan!!

Maybe cryptic can introduce a new afk logout timer for FA's. Like, 5 minutes long instead of the hour long one. Might fix that problem.

Yeah, it is so obvious it's not even funny.

And from an efficiency point of view it makes even sense to afk in these missions, since with 20 players the anonymity factor is a lot higher and hey, you can actualyl doing something worthwile in the hour that it takes the remaining 3 ships to accomplish something.

That would be Hilarious to see - 17 ships just AFking while 3 just keep getting blown up over and over - trying their hardest for 1st 2nd 3rd place:P:P:P

Not really. That would suck for the three of them. Hence why IMO, the 5 minute afk timer.

You really expect them to introduce a mission specific timer from Cryptic? I mean... REALLY?:rolleyes:

You don't get dilithium from FAs without participating.

I got paired with one that was almost done. I got a green item and no dilithium.

This is worth some testing - kill 1 bop in SB24 and then AFK to see if you get dilthium?
