We need limits - and punishment. I love punishment.

 

​LOL! YES! I agree that you LOVE punishment!

​By the same player? Is THAT what you are saying? Because if it is, I have yet to see that. EVER.  I see an AFK about once every 3 or 4 games. I'm not calling you a liar or anything, I just have not seen that.

 

Yup, and almost all the time, the person gets moving eventually, and usually before it's too late to do anything.

​Look, why do you care about AFKs? They just do not affect the game that much, if at all. And sometimes they actually make it back in. I recommend worrying about your own game and not worry about the AFKs. Now, I can sit here and play for hours on end. I can expect to get kicked out of the server at least a bare minimum of once per hour. Especially at certain times of the day. OR NOT. I can't predict it. I don't imagine anyone else can either.

 

I'm not too bothered by them. I'm considering an ideal solution for the worst case scenario. It's wise to be prepared.

A valid opinion, but only that.

 

Is it inconsiderate? Perhaps. In my opinion it would be. That's just my opinion.

 

But as for "should" and "shouldn't"? Who am I, or any of us, to decide that?

 

Setting standards for others only breeds contempt and frustration.

 

Well, in the end, someone has to decide what's what. WG decided on the current "punishment." I think it's a little too light.

Not an uncommon viewpoint for a person to have, until it comes time for theirs....

 

If I AFK four times in a single day feel free to ban me for a little while.

​Ok, I'm not surprised that this happens I'm just saying I haven't seen it. And I play for hours on end when I'm off work. I've actually had it happen to me twice in a game. But that's pretty rare. And shutting down and restarting usually fixes the problem.

​NO!!!!!!! Don't you see, it just isn't right. We don't want that to happen to US, and we don't want that to happen to YOU. It's just plain wrong. And with all this bantering about executing AFKs, don't you think YOU are kinda bullying a bit?

I appreciate your consideration, but I will be fine. I have yet to AFK once.

​I noticed. But RivertheRoyal scolded me for being salty and not very nice. Since I respect River's opinion, I'm trying REALLY hard not to bite a chunk out of my laptop right now.

​Hiroe, you must have one helluva system and phenomenal net. AT&T MyFy here in Alaska sucks. My system is top of the line, but MyFy- blah!

Aye, the person in question is well known to cause that reaction, as any thread he posts in generally ends up locked as a result

Um, what? The threads you're referring to were locked because I was insulted so much.

​Agreeable is nice. But comprehending is important also, and I don't feel that you are understanding the point that I am trying to convey, which is- sometimes crappy stuff happens to all of us and we should focus on doing what we should be doing instead of getting all bent out of shape over what others are or are not doing. You will be MUCH happier and the game will be that much more fun. You said yourself that you are a casual player, which indicates to me (correct me if I'm wrong) that you play for fun, right? So how can you play for fun if you are being a Nazi about what is going on with ships just sitting there, possibly AFK, and not going out there and doing YOUR job to the best of your ability?

Closed thread. This will cause unrest. Also, I'm not seeing this conversation evolving into a constructive dialogue.
