I stole the idea from the Uk monster raving loony partys employment policy

which is to pay the unemployed MORE benefits if they agree to stay home and play on playstation/computer games (thus allowing those actually keen to work a clear run at jobs)

And it would work
imagine logging into an incursion and doing a run with 5 active players for a change

or a STF without someone sat at spawn point

How does paying them to AFK for twenty minutes encourage them not to do the same in a proper mission?

Because they can get more doing it in the AFK mission AND theres no cool down

Basically its a free lunch and people who AFK (ie lazy people) like a free lunch

AFK in STO PvP is nothing new to the MMO... abbreviations from Hell. LOL

But really, this happens in a lot of online games I play. In Guild Wars whole teams just resign to allow the other team to win. If you go into PvP in WoW, GW, or SWTOR it is all the same old thing. They sure know how to mess up our fun with them just wanting to earn achievements.

Maybe AFKers should get an achievement from all the MMOs they are NOT playing. Something like a title to wear, "I spent a **** load of money on this game just so I can stand around like a moron!".

Meanwhile try to enjoy the game.

nothing moves

just five guys sitting afk



It gets better

We have a STF called "on night guard"
where five afkers stand in a darkened corridor for 20 minutes to get omega marks
nothing happens nothing attacks

We can have a romulan one as well called "Wait for the ambassador"
as above only with chairs


No more AFKing

There could even be a PVP version called "cease fire"
lmao too funny, they sound like awesome missions for afk people
