Why are AFK players still not punished?

Game has been released since 2015 and to this date people who AFK at the start of the match to the very end without moving at all are still not punished at all?

Don't give me the stupid "they don't get any xp or credits" argument. It doesn't matter as they can still click "Battle" and AFK in another match immediately after AFKing an entire match.

Sure, there are people who crash or the game doesn't load, but if it consistently happens then they should get banned or punished in some way.

Dude, it's not like there is only 1 afker in the whole WoWs player base.

The best thing we can do is to report him (or send WG ticket, must check the ticket rule again) and hope WG will take action.

For you WG staff, you should- like- show us something about afk player statistics like how many people have been banned since patches 0.x.x. It would be better if you can list banned players name, some of which might be the one someone reported and seek for evidence that he/she have been banished from this game.

Not sure, but I think the karma system will put a hold on a player's account if the karma gets too low - if that's right, then reporting the AFK players will have some effect

Lol no, if that was the case I'd be banned from the game due to excessive negative karma :cap_book:

I think the standard is still the same. They get flagged & warned then permabanned if they repeated, which resulted in many complaints about being too harsh.

The Karma will never fall below zero as it is capped because *player's feelings* so if a player already has zero karma, what's zero plus zero equal again?

There were so much afk players in ranked than random plays. This is what i see. Wg should do another fresh new round of banning and warning.

There was a thread from @Spotterabout this but it just died a natural death.   It has just never been a WG priority.

Said it before, say it again. The karma system is just a placebo put it place to make you feel like something will happen when you report an afk player. Its telling there is no 'Bot' option.

Pretty much, if you decide to play WG games, just accept that AFK / BOTs are part of the landscape. Which sucks, but once you find acceptance you can move onto more important issues, like beer. hmmmm, beer...

Perception of taking action is half the fight.  When WG just stay quiet and don't tell players of what/how/when players are banned then how does anyone know they are doing anything.

 

The old "if a tree falls over in the woods" argument.

No one has ever said that that should be punished.  Continual AFK's are the issue.

Clearly some are punished, this particular one got a permanent ban for his conduct. (I believe as he exposed this himself, my linking his post isn't naming and shaming)

"they don't get any economical reward" is a valid argument, the AFKers still need to pay credits to enter a battle, and after a period of time they will be left with no credits and unable to enter a battle.

unless they play T1, those ships are free of charge.

I quoted him because he was quite infamous in some community.

Here is WGS thread regarding it and as you can see their last active participation in the thread was also nearly 2 years ago.
