That's what he said just before going AFK.

 

I gave him three PLUS karma for good manners.

I don't mind if people are AFK, real life stuff is more important than this game (no offense WG i love this game please don't ban me).

craphappens, I don't report AFK unless they said something like "screw this team" or whatever. I have seen people quit because they are bottom tier and such. 

 

Ps. Does giving three compliments work? I have heard only the first report works, assumed it was the same for compliments.

As a parent, I salute you for this understanding.

I would've smiled.

I know some here would've thrown a temper tantrum though.

Yep, don't mind someone who has to afk because of real life. I've done the same, and can't say that I've even let folks in the round know most of the time. Just got up and dealt with whatever real life thing was pulling me away.

I tend not to downvote for afk unless it's obvious they ragequit.

I used to get frustrated at people that were AFK.  Then it happened to me.  I had just earned the Steven Seagal captain and put him on my current vessel for training.  I'm not exactly clear on what happened.  At the start of the match...well?  This dull...boring voice said something...maybe..."Battle Starts"?  I actually fell asleep, woke up later in port.  Very embarrassing.

Got to love Soshi but here's my take:

I never report AFK.  I've had times where the game locked up on me and wouldn't let me load past the matchmaking screen and I've been like "Well there goes all my karma."

Why bother to pay attention to a Player: AFK - pretend they got a DET and go on playing. It's not like its a team competition but just a gathering of anonymous players to compete for whatever your reason. 

As other players have said: Some circumstances come up which needs your immediate attention.

I'm much more cynical towards AFKs.  If you know you have an obligation upcoming, don't drop into battle.  And we've all come across those players in other games who always seem to have "emergencies" when they are outmatched.  

 

Additionally, this happens to the enemy CV when I use mine once out of every 20 games or so.  Only after their first wave gets annhilated, of course.  "have to go sorry" immaculate timing every instance. So I toss a report to every AFK, no matter the team or reason.  Tough nuts if it's truly an emergency, all the quit kiddies force me to treat everyone the same.

Yep, no probs with it, its those that spout off within the first two minutes of a match that 'this team sucks' or 'this is already a loss, I'm outta here', or something similar, then I cannot wait to report them!

I agree, only bother to report them if they purposely abandon the team like you mentioned in your example. With as buggy as the game has been over the past 3 patches, I don't even bother since so many people are having issues with the game crashing and the like. 

Compliments are one for one. If you give three compliments, the player gets three karma. I think it takes two reports to subtract one karma.
