this is becoming a huge problem.. these players are going down the whole list of missions and just sitting there and cashing in the rom marks, omega marks, 1440 dil plus gear..

they dont even repair their ship.. so they have like 20 injuries..


i dont see how there isnt a system to combat these players..

if you go afk the system should boot you from the team.. its not hard..

it takes like what 10 minutes to be marked as afk?

anyone that doesnt move for 10 minutes during a pug stf should be booted..
no rewards. plus an hour penalty should be put on the account, just like he left early.

why does this not exist?

one time i had 2 afk players on my team.. this is a huge problem

I'd lower it from 10 minutes to about 3. By ten minutes in some STFs you've already lost the optional, and some of the Romulan and Fleet missions are done in ten minutes.

But anything you do, these "people" will find a way to exploit the system. Still doing something is better then nothing.

What I've never understood is what they are trying to do? Get Omega marks for what? So they can have top end gear, but then have no idea how to use it?

Why do you keep passing missions with AFKers on the team? This just encourages them.
In an STF if there are AFkers I will sit around near them and wait for them to start moving before I do. If a minute passes by and they still haven't moved I will go AFK as well for 15 min, then come back and leave without penalty. Just alt tab out and watch netflix for 15 min or something, don't ever pass missions with afkers in it or it will never stop. If it is not an stf just warp out immedialtey since there is no penalty.

this just makes things worse, then you become one of those we are trying to get rid of.

you can most of the time complete a mission with 4 players.. you might fail optional or not get as many rom marks..

there needs to be something tho. reporting them to gms doesnt seem to do anything at all.

if you put them on ignore list, the system doesnt take that in account for teams.. which it should..

if someone i dont like is harassing me and i put them on my ignore list, i surely dont want to have them on my team..

No you are making it worse by carrying AFKers thus encouraging them. Last time there was an AFKer in my group I wasn't the only one who agreed we should also all AFK, almost my entire team agreed except one person who decided to warp out and take a penalty. The other 3 of us just blew the tac cube then sat back and let the probes through in KASE until it failed. it doesn't matter if you can do the mission with 4 people, its the prin ciple of the thing.

because it would be exploited and used to cause problems for other players

this has been said over and over and over again. there is no problem. all you have to do is make your own group. if you don't like the people you PUG with then stop being lazy and stop joining PUG groups
