He could always put in a clause that you have to be afk 2x inside a certain time period before it will trigger the negatives or something similar to that. I dont mind the occasional AFK it happens. But even just in this short time in this format I have had multiple times with the same toons being afk multiple arena matches in a row... THAT'S a problem.

Rather than extra rating loss, a penalty that is more sure to sting an AFKer would be to reduce their arena bonus rather than increase it.



if you get caught X-times afk in a single season you get banned , how about that?

What tsu said - if someone who accidentally afks comes back they are reminded not to be afk or stop queuing, at least for the immediate future. Some rating/bonus penalty and/or timeout should only kick in after 2 consecutive afks. Since reporting afkers works now any pattern of alternating or egregious % of afks/total fights should be easy to spot and punish.

How about increasing the amount of arena double drop bonus per arena match and giving it a cap that's easy to hit in like 10 arena matches? This way the people that only arena for bonus can get the cap and be done with arena for the day. You will have less people that go afk. This way everyone wins!

How does this get those people to actually try in arena though? And not afk for those ten matches? I still only see gold in your eyes, not arena.

It's absolutely frustrating for people to hit the Queue button, and not take it serious. I understand stuff happens in life, if an emergency happens, they can deal with the occasional AFK penalty I think.

This would really make people think about " Is there anything I need to do before i hit the queue button?" Instead of wasting others time by queuing and giving free wins lol. I understand the randomness of this format, but there is no penalty for being AFK, and on top of that our report options are fairly minimal.

It seems pretty fair to me, what about you guys? you screw over 2 people, including yourself by not being present. you should lose 3x more rating, and your teammates should lose the normal amount that they would. ( Unless they were AFK too)...

So a simple way to code this would be, After the Defiance timer runs out, if you haven't moved your mouse, clicked a portrait, pressed a key, or anything. you are considered AFK, and if you die after this defiance timer runs out, you receive the penalty. That is 10 seconds a player has to at least press a key, move, or something. Obviously, if you're stun locked, you would have at least moved your mouse, or pressed a key. so that "i was stun locked the whole 10 seconds" wouldn't count towards you not trying to do an action.

What do you guys think?

P.S. not getting rating and tokens is not really a punishment a big enough punishment. kinda like having to sit after class for being late, it's not really a punishment that anyone would care about. The point of this should be to discourage AFK'ers. Being AFK is just an excuse to throw a match, and say you didn't actually throw it.
I agree!

Some days it seems I get an AFK ers every other match. I Just lost 10 point for a match I would have won if not for the afk BM.

Well your bonus does not go up if your afk. Also if you only needed to do a certain amount of matches for max bonus instead of having to arena all day long, you would be more inclined not to be afk and to get to that max bonus as fast as possible.
