# 1 Klingons going AFK in PvP
02-06-2010, 11:38 PM
more and more are doing this.

Does anyone know if anything is being done about it?

Not playing with 3 afk klingons kinda sucks we grind they zone in and get xp

Do you think they might be disconnecting?

As much as I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt I only get Server Disconnected when entering or exiting the pvp arenas, never on deaths. But who knows....

As far as defending against it, forced spawning really is the only way I can think of.

Happens in lots of games... Especially mmo's. They could change it to 5 min timers in pvp instances. I know I have to step away at times only because life > game. But I try to tell my group what's going on so they can adapt. Most of the times I have stepped away never kept me from the top of leaderboards in points.

Well it's no longer Beta so all kinds of people play Klingons now - expect your share of idlers as well. :/

I know that I've had a number of situations on zoning to PvP that I get 'server not responding', trying to login my character gets stuck with 'server not responding' (and recently a message about 'cannot login as server told to die' or something).

On one occasion, I did manage to log back in - and found my ship in the PvP instance that I'd attempted to join... which was rather surprising to me.

tldr; Yes.

NO they are not disconnects they fully admit to doing it

I even saw one guy express guilt and make a half hearted attempt to stab a guy on the fed side once. Last night what I saw as not disconnects they were all genuine self admitted bonified afk pvp'ers. Who take up slots and stand there to get killed. See oddly enough I rolled a klingon cause I enjoy the pvp in this game. If I want to not pvp I go play the fed guy.


It destroys gameplay on both sides. When 2 or more people hurry up and go afk you might as well go AFK yourself or leave.

Since the only content on klingon side is PVP it well has an interesting affect on those of us who actualy want to play the game. We leave and play a fed guy or play another game.
