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

Listen, I know you want your shiny for completing the STF. I know you want to play the STF on that character and you enjoy doing it. I know you don?t want to let your team down and you want to do your part. So, you are willing to work harder to get your shiny and theirs too. It?s okay, really. There is nothing wrong with that. The only part I don?t understand is why you want Cryptic to do something about it. If you complete the mission for the AFK?er then you support their behavior.
If I were Cryptic, then I wouldn?t do anything either.
For me, no way. I refuse to do for another player what they won?t do for themselves. It doesn?t bother me in the least to leave a team in a position where they can?t complete the STF to stop an AFK?er from exploiting me, game or not. If that toon gets time penalty, so what. I switch characters and keep going.
I know I am going to get flamed for saying this considering how unpopular this is. But I have to leave you with one question, which of us is doing something to stop it- the one completing the mission for them or the one stopping everyone from completing it?
? to thine own self ?
Completely, 100%, agree.
Had an instance a few days ago, in ISE, where a K'Tinga warped in with the rest of the team. As soon as everyone started moving the idiot in the K'tinga cloaked, flew off to the left and stayed there.
It (quickly) became obvious that said dumbarse was A: clicking need on anything that dropped and B: remained cloaked and stationary. The remainder of team agreed that the 'player' in question was an idiot and agreed bail on the mission, leaving Captain Dumbass to sit in the map alone.
As you say, FAR better to, in the worst case, take the penalty over allowing some lazy idiot to benefit from everyone else's work.
