Unsinkable in this instance.

Sad part is this was an extremely close match.  In this instance, the AFK probably made the difference between a win and a lossafk.thumb.jpg.80b555654c95f1332a0e9ec1f3ead545.jpg.

 

And a shout out to the Minotaur and Yugumo...they carried the day.

Actually that shows a good team on your side, because no one went for the AFK guy until the end, he was his teams last hope. Potentially an AFK guy could get a Solo Warrior.

Jingles got one such record sent to him.

Look at all the tries hard guys on the Red team, bet that Yami is still in hospital after needing back surgery.

I once helped an AFK ship get Solo Warrior.

And I saw an enemy Yamoto who was AKF get two Close Quarter Expert Awards. How those two DDs screwed that up is beyond me.

The very fact that this topic exists shows that there is still a problem with AFKers that WG should address. If you are AFK in a match, the system should treat you like a bot or co-op and you should not be receiving awards. I sure hope someone at WG sees this and fixes the issue.

Solo Warrior is my elusive achievement... but I have seen AFK players get it...:Smile_izmena:

Same here. I've had the AFK ship on my team win the game for us before.

I love how like 12 patches ago WG said they fixed it so AFK get no rewards.  But they still do, including stars in ranked, achievements, and if they get lucky enough to earn spotting damage or plane kills, they still get their credits and XP to boot.

 

What happened to the "must sail a minimum distance" thing?

I have been AFK numerous times due to loading issues.  The client freezes and disconnects.  Sometimes by the time I restart my PC and log back in, the match has ended.

That happened to me the other night, the mac wrapper hates me apparently...

 

Luckily it was in Co-op, not randoms so there was no harm done.

My one and only Solo Warrior was obtained the one time I had to bail on a match.  My son was throwing a tantrum and I had to leave only a minute into the game.  My Kongo was at full speed and going somewhere, hadn't even fired the guns yet.  I logged back in to find the results and saw my team had gone on top on points but all been sunk and the enemy couldn't find my Kongo....Solo Warrior.

Very irritating to have gotten it that way.

My first solo warrior was systematically sinking 5 ships in a shimakaze tripling everyone else's score. Earned.

Well, hypothetically.  It is possible they were simply out of position and couldn't get to wherever my Kongo had gone in time, or even that they were in the process of sinking my Kongo when the clock ran out.
