So the new patch has dropped and I for one am extremely impressed. I have not yet run into a single tker or afker in random since the new patch has dropped. 

It is so refreshing to not have to deal with those players in randoms anymore. Thumbs up WG, for putting measures in place to ban those players where they belong. 

Can f key spammers be put there as well, please? Randoms would become nearly serene if we were rid of them too.

Good to hear, but still early hours... I'd wait a few days before passing any judgement!

I have occasionally accidentally struck an F key when trying to change shell types without looking at the keyboard, and kept on hitting it when the change didn't happen. Only when I looked in the chat box did I see what I had done!

Unfortunately, without telepathy it is sometimes difficult to tell whether anything somebody says in chat is real or bulldust. One cannot take a player seriously when requests for reinforcement and smokescreens come from a rearward-spawning battleship in the first three seconds of the game - "cry wolf".

Ah, the irony that the new afk penalty starts today.  I had to take a day off work to have a new hot water heater installed.  I have no idea what time the guy is showing up.  I guarantee that if I load into a game, I'll have to go let him in and end up afk.

Too early to tell how well it works.

Played only two so far (one in Ops) and already had an AFK.

Played one game in Prinz Eugen to see how the the new heal does, enjoyed it, think my PE will be taken out of port much more often in the future.  Did have an AFK CV on our team, so game went south... but again very happy with heal on PE.

I'm sure one occurrence isn't going to hurt. Maybe you can even get back in time to finish the match. (dunno if you have to be AFK at the end of the match to get dinged, or a set length of time at any point during the match)

That AFK CV wasn't a Ranger was it? And the map was neighbors? Most of your team stuck together as a big group around your Bismarck? If so, hi! I was the enemy Kaga!

I was trying to support our Minsk, game quickly devolved as you kept the map illuminated, was constantly spotted,  had 6 ships shooting at me , tough enough to win if your CV is AFK, but when the red CV driver is good, we did not stand a chance...

Maybe it was a different match, that does SOUND like how I played, but leaves out the part where I had to do a last stand with no planes against two DDs with... Predictable results.

Wow! You'll give yourself a hernia handling bait of that magnitude.

I fear a slow load in will get me tagged AFK.  It happens often for me (half the time) load into game 30-50 seconds after start.

 There was a AFK in Killer Whale this morning saw him later in Killer Whale and he was pink.

He did so little then hid so he was still almost afk.

The real test will be this weekend. I still think it's too early to tell.

Great if it reduces that, as it should. But a lot of players won't pay attention until they get restricted. By the weekend, the co-op mode should have a spike in pink. You can see the scoffers in the forums.

Wow, you obviously can't either read or comprehend. We pride ourselves on our literacy here in SK.

Can't wait for Monday when the threads about how bad the new system is, are at full throttle.
