In The Vault Ensnared yesterday was the last straw. a player, who I cannot name decided to just sit there, and do nothing until, around half way through the vault weavers, then they came and just flew around, luckily the rest of the players in game were on the ball, so we all reported him!

You know we should be able to remove these players, so A they cannot get rewards for all our hard work, and B, so we can enjoy the rest of the mission with out them!

Its just a little courtesy, the gamers should have for each other, if you dont then please go play NEVERWINTER!
Short answer "NO"..we had it a while back and was extremely abused...then there were other threads "Can we STOP the kick button"

Not in regard to AFKing/leeching the public queues. Cryptic should be able to develop code that would identify who is not participating/leeching and not grant them any reward or any chance to roll on rewards.

I was running IGE last night with a fleetmate and three PUGs- one of whom was a 'toother'. After intentionally ruining the optional, this 'toother' ran ahead into the mini-boss chamber at the mid point, so that the force field erected, then he used a personal shroud to hide in the corner of the room without aggroing the borg.

This caused the other four of us to be stalled indefinitely behind the force field, unable to proceed.

Now, a kick function is not the only answer, but we need some solution here. This kind of thing should not be allowed to happen.

I would have simply unplugged my router, causing a DC. Plug it back in after a few, and log into a different toon. No leaver penalty for a DC.

i to haven't came across any afk players except in kerrat and they was kdf that would usualy fly off some where when the action started because they was so heavily outnumberd by fed never seen any in the 3 years i been playing in any stf but dont get me wrong though i know there out there they are in every mmo there is so if your gona leave sto just because of some afker then it's your loss cause you wont find a game any where except on counsol that doesn't have afkers

Heh. Yeah, me & my Fleet mates wore talking about this same issue. One with ppl that jus leech in missions & the others that ppl simply mess up the mission in plain sight.

There should be a vote system & maby even a kool down time after you pick to kick sum1 to be voted out.

Both easily solved by teaming with people you know.

So if you join a Pug group and someone is leeching, just place them on ignore and suck it up for the rest of the mission. And in the future you will never see that person again, and if they do it often enough and everyone is blocking that person he/she will take longer and longer to queue up for missions.
that is the most brilliant solution i have read yet in these forums about afkers there is way to many topics about this issiue it seams like every time some one dont get the answer they want they make another topic about the same thing honestly isn't that forum spam wich is against the tos
