I understand what your saying and empathize with them, but I was just pointing out that we get what we put into the game. The more effort one makes to enhance their gameplay end up enjoying the game more than the ones that make less effort.

the last couple where we had the AFK'ers we all as a team just parked our ships next to them and just waited lol ya we lost the optional but after about 5 mins of us talking about the person and not doing anything they left lol,
the other time was in infected I just dragged the tac to where he was hidding so the tac would kill me then turn on him he left before I could get the tac to him I was sad lol.

the one thing I have been noticing in infected with the AFKer's is the will on purpose lose the optional. IE blow up a gen on other side of team die then afk

so? did this make you win? no..
they more then likely just re queued up a new match and YOU were the ones that didnt get anything..

losing out on some loot being afk doesnt hurt the afker.. they can run another mission afk.. it doesnt even matter what mission they pick, cause they dont intend to play it.

IMO you guys whining over someone afk in an open mission pug are the ones with the problem ....

You're a jackass! Reach back and unplug your computer, stupid!
Actually, that goes for everyone that says we shouldn't pug. I play at odd hours when most of my fleet mates are offline. And I don't usually play elite STF's. It isn't our fault and it isn't our problem. This is Cryptic and PWE not giving a holy flying $#!+! Pure and simple.

I have always thought of AFKing as a protest to the repetitive game play and grinding. It is why I have no problem with people who do it. In fact, I applaud those people for AFKing because they are actually doing something to bring about change (as opposed to the legions of keyboard warriors on this so-called FORUM). The more people who do it, the more Cryptic will realize that their end game is getting BORING!

If you intro the Vote to Kick (V2K) feature, people will abuse it. In fact, I think the same number of people who leech will be the exact same number of people who abuse V2K. You are replacing one problem with another...except your new problem can be directly used to attack legit players...and that is WORSE than AFKing. I would rather have an AFKer, silent and invisible, than a power-tripping a**hole voting to kick someone cause their DPS isn't Godly.

Face it kids...AFKing is a small issue (I won't even call it a problem, cause that implies it is bad) and it can be easily avoided by not pugging. Go and make some friends, make a fleet, party up, and reduce or eliminate the chances of being paired with an AFKer. There are so many options available to you to avoid AFKers.

And...for all you AFKers out there - you know who you are - I have one thing to say to you people: What you are doing is not against the TOS...so don't worry about it. Play the game the way you feel comfortable. Don't let anyone call you a leech (because that is name calling and THAT IS against the TOS). If anyone calls you a leecher, or any other bad name, report them ASAP for name calling. Sooner or later...the name calling will stop.
Another jackass...

being AFK during a match should be fixed this asap.

they need to remove the leaver penalty on every mission.. some missions you can already leave.. but not every one.

not everyone can make private matches.. or dont want to..
pugging is part of the game.. if you get an afker, you should be able to leave and restart with no penalty.


there is no reason to be forced to put up with these guys..

i do under stand why they do it tho.. its from being forced to grind the same missions over and over..
once you play the one you like, you have 30 to 60 minutes to go do something else.
also, only a few missions give certain rewards.. like CC.. i hate to admit it, while i dont afk.. every time i play that mission i just hang back and shoot the thoilans. one time i got first place doing that.


mission CDs, and repetition make this game very boring.

they should add the choice of marks loot to every mission.. and remove CDs and leaver penalties..

then no more AFKers and you do what you want to have fun..
YOU should work for Cryptic or PWE! Thank you! I was getting sick of calling people names.

I gotta say, I've been playing this game for a year and I have NEVER encountered an afker in an stf and I almost exclusively pug. Maybe I've just been extraordinarily lucky, but it doesn't seem to me that this could possibly as big of a problem as everyone seems to be making it out to be.

Have you opened any lock boxes? You must have won every ship by now.

Leeching is a problem and saying don't pug and only play with friends is like telling a girl that gets unwanted attention from a jerk in a bar you should of had a guy friend with you. Plain and simple that is a stupid thing to say.
