Frequent AFK players should be labelled as TK players

If its someone who is AFK for entire games then sure.
But ever since the 7.0 update I occasionally get stuck with massive load times when entering a match that can see me only appearing in game around 3~minutes into the match.
Has stopped me touching my CV's as 3+ minutes without planes i nthe air can get people really riled up

I'm fed up with AFK.

It may actually not always be AFK, there may be the Internet or other technical issues. Or it may be a real-world emergency like a player decided to get a drink, while in the queue, or the phone rang, or the cat wanted food. In these cases, a ship may look AFK for a few minutes.

I report a player as AFK at the end of the game when I’m sure he really was AFK. Generally, I encourage other players in chat to do the same.

However, WG seems not to do anything about AFK players. I have never heard of someone getting banned or warned for being AFK.

When I ground up the French BB tree recently, I saw AFK ships in about every 2nd battle, that’s T2 or T3 battles. In higher tier games, say T5 and up, you see one AFK maybe in 50 battles, it just is not a pressing issue.

WG would have to come up with something to warn, ban or otherwise sort AFK players out. Which currently they don’t.

Marking AFK players as team killer, I don’t think that will change anything. I personally don’t care that my ship turns pink for a while. Generally, TK’s are results of accidents or carelessness.

People who TK on purpose, well, you can start a support ticket for “rule violation” against that player and they are likely to be warned, banned if repeat offenders. The issue is that WG asks for evidence, generally, you need a reply.

I don’t think I have ever seen 10 AFKs in a day, not even in a week.

 What tier do you usually play?

Away From Keyboard IS NOT Team Killer. Obviously, you can't do that.

Though I had to agree with the concern, I have battle loading issue (including frequent kicking when entering or found battle) & crashing whenever I already had 9 battles since Update 7.0. But now in Update 7.2, the battle loading issue & crashing become occasional when I only had 4 or 5 battles so I had to restart my game client just for that.

Haha, sure, but in my experience nowhere near 10 in one day as a typical number.

Saw quite a few recently, they started slower but they did. Better than never.

Unless it's the team CV, it doesn't matter much to me.

If I had the power, I would lock down players with TK and AFK penlaties to co-op till the complete the required co-op games.

For example if you TK and get a penalty status for 7 games, you can only complete those 7 games in co-op.

Anyone who is familiar with Dota's low priority system for deliberate AFK penalties. Sure some will come up with an idea that "What if this was accidental", but accidentals are rare case, and there could be an accumulation system.

They haven't acknowledged anything for nearly two years in that thread.   That was nothing more than an effort to placate the player base and fell by the wayside like WG has always done with the problem of AFK/cheating.  The apathy is real.

Maybe a solution that looks attractive to you, but it would look less attractive to players that do mainly co-op.
