Do you know how many people actually bother to read it? Go to their forums and check yourself. The had to add a cool down counter on it because during testing player proved it could be abused and would be by the general population fo the game. Most people have been found to click the yes without even reading. Either way the abuse is still there and people have still been kicked for:
-Making a beginners mistake, even in the low level dugeons where people are meant to learn a bit about playing their class in groups.
-Not having the gear that player x has decided is the minimum for that part of the game. Despite the fact they have the minimum needed as set by Blizzard or they wouldn't be there in the first place.
-Daring to ask the DPSers who are always "go, go ,go" to slow down a little.
-Daring to say they are new to that part of the game
-Letting someone die, even if it is the idiots own fault for standing in the fire.
So on and so on.
It is why no matter how much PvPers ask for it BLizzard has not given in and added it to BGs. They learnt that if even the so called "placid" PvE community in the game will abuse this feature the god help them if they added it to PvP.
funny i never saw this in my 3 years of player ingame well maybe at the start of it but then blizz start give out bans dont happen as much now days
Vote-to-Kick is an excellent idea!
It will fix multiple problems:
1. Leechers will be removed from game 2. All these multicolor boats and weak ship configs will be removed from STF 3. Players of nations I don't like to play with (because of, for example, language barrier making coordination impossible) will no longer be a problem 4. Trolls and players not listening comands of more experienced players will have time to regret their actions after kick 5. Players who don't mind learnig STF basics (like correct generator detonation method etc.) will get the best lesson possible. 6. Players who didn't participated in mission enough, may be kicked just before mission end, to no longer recive reward for their crappy performance.
2-6 from the list above is pretty much why the Vote-to-Kick system that was in the game a while back was removed .
Oh , and if it's not clear , the system was abused .
Having said that , the Leechers issue is a problem .
I am losing STO with each new system based update and with each removal and editing of content .
I don't know how to save her from her systems obsessed masters who seek to control and monetize me more and more .
