In private ones dont you end up 9 times out of 10 in one about to finish/halfway through?
and besides...if that were the solution then get rid of public queues altogether...
I don't know what you're getting at.

I didn't mention chat bans, I mentioned using chat channels to arrange for private matches.

Quite frankly, would be know-it-all "elite" PvEers are one the type of players who would end up abusing vote kick. Imo, these are the most annoying b/c they don't even realize they're griefing, but instead feel smug about doing themselves a favor by abusing the mechanic.

I assume in your 2nd paragraph you're refering to PvE again (this started regarding PvP not PvE) and no I've never come close to a 9 out of 10 failure rate in any PvE in this game random PuG groups or not.

Ideally, Cryptic would devote the resources to automate AFKer detection and/or have a report system in place where they can check the logs of a AFKer and not involve the player at all.

But, if it's AFKer Vote Kick or keep things the way they are where people can create private matches I pick private matches. AFKer Vote Kick creates a griefing mechanic to combat a griefing mechanic. Private Matches uses a grief avoidance mechanic. I know Private Matches take some social initiative, but this is an MMO afterall and not a single player game.
