I don't know what happened these days,but almost in every matches there'll be 1~2 AFK on my side.Some of them have very bad statistics.

AFK is unsportsmanship.

Please stop this!

Not mentioning suspicious ship that plays like an AI bot. After checking the players stats which is slightly better than my signature photo below & his kagero WR at 32%.

At first he seems afk for like 3 mins, then started sailing and stopping behind an island and parking 1.5km next to my chappy. Like bots which auto stops at certain points, then charging into enemy dd which he seems to know where it is, then smoking up. It seems like his ship is only attacking the nearest ship like bots do. The nearest enemy ship was a GK which he started to shoot at it openly and it was not the enemy chung mu which was the nearest then because after he started shooting there was no return fire by chung mu at 7km range from GK........it really seems to confirm my suspicion. Typical predictable bots pattern.... :cap_hmm::cap_yes:

P.S. Not sure whether to report this player or not. Still keeping that replay last night. If you want to check that player you can PM me

I have seen such players but they do not play like a typical predictable pattern like bots do in coop or scenarios.

I still go optimistic towards a team with AFKers since I won a game when two cvs in my team sunk meanwhile enemy's cvs were still alive OR

Execute all AFK ships before enemy detect them

Again met this kagero with same play style. AFK for the 1st 3 mins then it will auto go to a CA behind an island (CA is me of course) and stop there. After that it will turn around and go to the nearest enemy 1st.  Wonder if its WG testing bots on live server....:cap_hmm: I dont think a 2.5k battles player in a kagero will play exactly that same way every time. Its really like a programming logic......

I know there is no naming but should i post his name here so when you guys meet the same bot maybe you all can see for yourself? Anyway that name will appear on the last 3 pages of the players leaderboard. Just take a look at my signature below.

I've been in many times in the situation ... 1. Thrown to login screen and cannot re-login. ... 2. Non progression's Loading Screen to battle and wait for 30 min, nothing happen. When match end, auto back to port screen. ... 3. Similar to no 1, but now decide to restart the PC. Need about 10~15 minute procedure. So I'm back to the game (if my ship not destroyed first) after half-match progress.

Send that replay to WG support. Let them decide.

I've seen the same. Had a Fuso that sat in spawn, did nothing, as soon as the enemy came close (which was end game) it began to move and fired at the closest target. A full HP BB, while a cruiser on literally 88HP was only 1km further back from the BB....

So why when I read this post did the line "It's alive!!!!!" Run through my head?

Dunno, anyways Spotter it would be great if some definitive action took place, more than a few of us are in the cynical, resigned acceptance mindset, which is not good for the player base long term.

So annoying.

Was just in a 2 CV a side game.

One of our CV sat there doing nothing until game was half over - didn't respond to communication.

When did do something, only launched planes and then planes went to back of map until an enemy ship came close then "it" attacked.

I was DD and needed air cover - constantly spotted by enemy planes because it was 2 CV vs 1 CV effectively.

I don't care WHAT the reason is, this ruins games.

Really annoying.

I'm also affected by this issue. Even though I'm more of a Coop guy, apprarently there are still AFK players there too..... :cap_wander:

One thing that may appease the community is if there was some form of update in  this thread here and at least giving them the impression something is being done rather than deathly silence

It started off and then just died.  No staff responses....nothing.  Bearing remarkable similarities to the apathy that WOT had over AFK and cheating.  The last notification of player sanctions was April 2016.  Nearly 2 years and 106 posts from players after that and nothing from WG in there.

There is a sticky thread here on WG acknowledging AFK.

 

When you see AFK ships, report them. But be careful, sometimes a ship looks AFK, but then it starts moving at one stage.

 

I have sometimes dropped out of the server and it took a few minutes to log back in.

 

Overall, I don’t think I see more than one “real” AFK in about 50 games, I mean, a ship that at one stage is killed by the enemy team without resistance.

You can get it a lot on PT too - when you need to win (say) 5 battles for the live reward, people will just get into a battle, esc out of it and enter another one with a different ship. Repeat until you luck out 5 times. Last PT session I was in a game with 4 afks on our team (we didn't win!).

I'm not sure why they do it on their live accounts though.

i used to encounter issue No. 2 at certain cafe. My assumption is the cafe's system read/write access for the terminal isn't friendly enough for WOWS(or not enough rights for the terminal). So when i changed to a different cybercafe it worked fine. usually takes 10 mins or halfway on the match when i encountered that issue last time.

Not all of them maybe afkers. A number of them the game may have had their game crash or take a long time to load. I am seeing quite a lot cases nowadays - at least 1 afker on either team every few battles.

Oh yeah fix your :etc_swear: game WG.

Just had not one, but two players afk/game crashed in a match today. (Actually 3, the Colorado was active in the first 5 minutes or so, then went AFK/crashed/whatever)
