What is the best/fastest way to get them? I know I can AFK in the battle zone, but I feel bad when I do. Is there a better way that I won't have to spend hours to get just a few hundred?

Don't AFK in a battlezone. Cryptic G-Men will come and break your legs.

OT: Be smart about your ground battlezone play. I hate to suggest this, but if you can learn how to "tag" the V-Rex, then you'll expedite your mark gains considerably. I only suggest it because I haven't been in a ground zone instance where people WEREN'T doing it in forever, so you might as well join the crowd. Doing that will net you 100+ a rotation, and you can usually hit 500 or so in a few hours (like... 2).

You should probably just quit the game if your choices begin with mooching.

Here's a radical, out-of-the-box idea for you. I know this is wacky as all get-out, but you could try actually playing instead of just attaching yourself to the zone's max player count like a tick on a stray dog.

Nope, sorry, got no ideas on how to leech more effectively.

Dyson marks are by far the easiest/fastest marks you can get.
Although I usually play alone, the best way to do it is with another or two other people. Two or three players can progress through the zone really fast. 15 Marks per area captured. Plus, if you collect the battlezone credits and request reinforcements of high rank officers you get some marks as well. Doing the daily missions from the Commander rewards several and tagging the 3 V-Rex's maximizes the gains.

Instead of AFK-ing in the ground battle zone... PLAY in the ground battle zone...

It is hands-down the fastest way to get dyson marks. I play solo there 99% of the time and I have 11,000+ dyson marks. Seriously it is not hard to do and playing there will have a significantly faster return than waiting for other people to do it for you. If you find the ground voth to be difficult, team up with friends, or at the very least just find another player and follow them around so you're not trying to cap points alone.

Artillery is the easiest to capture (or the transporter pads). If you're with a group the next easiest is the capture points because more people makes the capture go faster. Technically they're still easier to do than the moving device points if you're solo but they drag on for eternity so I prefer to skip them and do Artillery then moving device points.

You could run a couple battlezone rounds... that will net you a few hundred easily... rather than AFK'ing... you know, like actually do something productive in the game with your fellow players.

To all of the people who's posts sum up to "You AFK, shame on you!!!!" or "Why don't you play the game?" you all need to get your eyes checked and re-read my post. I stated that I don't like to AFK. I like to have fun and play the game. I'm looking for the fastest method to get Dyson Marks without AFKing.

And everyone who suggested actually playing has offered a method to get them faster than AFKing.

The fastest method is to go out there, cap points, and kill dinos. Each point taken rewards marks, as does each boss/miniboss. Likewise, make sure you kill medics/don't lose silos so the payout at the end is larger. Mine-stacking is probably the fastest way to quick-kill stuff if you're that desperate to cheese it.
