Going AFK is profitable. Please implement some kind of kick feature.

A player regulated vote to kick feature is the best option (with inbuilt safeguards naturally).
A kick feature will always be abusable, but removing any rewards or mission-completion credit for AFK'ers destroys any incentive to even enter the map to waste everyone's time. This also addresses the player who plays only 1 minute, then goes away to watch TV.
