It appears that little or no planning went  into the team damage and proper game play rules.

I guess I was expecting to much from Wows to develop a set of rules that apply to all its player

base. They have overlooked the fact that some people work in places like hospitals,fire stations 

and the likes. Are these players supposed to let their patients wait or die while they complete a 

game of Warships??? The way it appears at the present is the answer to the question is YES!

 AS A HEART SURGEON MY PATIENTS ARE MY 1ST PRIORITY. 

On Saturday April 27 @ approximately 7:30 am I began to play a game of warships- no sooner

had I pushed play button and my pager went off-telling me to report to the hospital as one of my

patients needed my assistance. I did so.

 

When I returned home and restarted World of Warship there was a pink box telling me I had been

charged with UNSPORTING  CONDUCT(inactivity & left game early). I HAD NO BLOODY CHOICE!!

I HAD NO WAY TO KNOW THAT HE WAS GOING TO HAVE MORE COMPLICATIONS, SO TO MAKE  ME PINK

IS ABSURD, UNETHICAL AND DISCRIMINATORY.    PLEASE LOOK INTO PREVENTING THIS FROM HAPPENING

TO ME AND OTHER DOCTORS WHO PLAY WORLD OF WARSHIPS.

This aggression will not stand.

WG has to find a better way because good people are being hurt.

 

And in this case, a man almost died.

I'm seriously concerned that a Doctor would be so preoccupied with a game, that he would give a damn that he went pink.....:Smile_amazed:

WG implement all of this because we the community asked for it. Of course, WG went a bit heavy handed as usual, but I've always said this kinda stuff was going to be an issue at the beginning.

It's not that bad, it'll go away.

All of us at some point all of us will be hit with it.

Ok, lets try to be calm here. 

The problem that needs to be dealt with is AFK ships.  Sometimes being AFK is unavoidable, just like the OP indicated but often it's not.  At the present time WG doesn't have a system which can tell the difference between the two so it's using a graduated warning system.  

If you are a player who will occasionally be called away and have no choice but to be AFK for a game, the system gives you a light warning and, if it's not a common occurrence, that's all that's going to happen.   If, however, you are a habitual offender (those that the system is attempting to deal with) you are going to offend again and again and again and if that's the case the system will start imposing real penalties such as banning the player to Co-op for a certain number of games. 

To be honest, I've seen enough games thrown down the toilet because someone decides they don't like that map or the ships they're facing or the color of the ocean, or they just decide to park their ship because the game isn't going their way to leave everyone else to fend for themselves, that I'm not going to be upset that I occasionally end up with a pink ship every now and then if that's what it takes to deal with this problem.

You mean a person might have almost died had the doctor not sacrificed his WOWS game  and failed to treat his patient.   Fortunately, we now know that there is at least one doctor out there that will place his patient's lives ahead of electronic warship sailing electronic seas.  :Smile_honoring:

Dear OP,

If you're really a cardiac surgeon, you shouldn't really care about being pink since being pink has no negatives associated with it other than psychological.  Please give us your name and the geographical area you operate in so that we can avoid the services of a doctor so obsessed with having his pixel boat name turn pink that he rants on an internet forum.

Regards,

Pope_Shizzle, Esq.

Having to go afk happens but as a Doctor, going pink should only be a minor annoyance for you and not a major one. A Patient is more important then your pixel ship going pink.

The problem now is that the good doctor has to worry he may go orange if he rushes off and goes AFK.!

I wouldn't want to have to be the guy that had to make THAT decision...  (firefighters, paramedics, heart surgeon..)

But what if your next patient had heart attack from the stress of you going AFK??? Lol JK, going AFK because of true emergency is good reason, but I would also say exercise some judgement when posdible such as if you are medical personal on call and things are getting busy at your work to the point that 20 minute battle might be unwise. Especially if the WOWs system starts tracking your activity.

Lol if I think for some reason I might have tighter than expected schedule on particular day I switch over to WOT Blitz or other shorter type of game, or one that can be paused.

You mean you're not buying into the central premise that an adult with a highly technical job would come off in a game forum acting like a spoiled child?:Smile_amazed:

Lol that is when auto pilot is your friend, if on the rare emergency occasion you have to get off just set 5 long distance Auto pilot waypoints that will last several minutes and then rush off, at least your ship will do something as far as spotting or perhaps if you dint have manual Secondaries your ship might actually get some secondary damage in.

It's certainly possible.  I've got a pretty technical job and I can come across as a spoiled child sometimes.  But I would never whine that doing my job (which always meant the difference between freedom and prison and at times in the past meant the difference between life and death) resulted in me not being able to play a video game.  That's just a little over the top.

Lol I am getting ready to go to college and looking at career options. :Smile_smile:

Although might make patients little nervous because thanks to wonderful genetics in my family I look a lot younger than I am and will continue to look young for long time. Which is not a bad thing, but imagine a veteran heart surgeon at hospital looking like they are 16 or something about that age lol.

So.... what you're saying is that your patient was..... hard to die?

Can't believe I read this drivel. I'll see myself out.

I work long hours as an administrative segregation wing officer in a level five maximum security prison. WoWS definitely takes priority.

I’m a Volunteer Firefighter and a few times now my pager has gone off for a call ..and Away I go leaving the game ...I’m a consummate team player,also a veteran so I know the meaning of responsibility only to well, not to concerned with the new guidelines   Will see how they play out,

I can understand Wows wanting to fix AFK but really how many just bail for no good reason , not many I’d bet most would be game crashes out of the players immediate control .. time will tell

There's a lot of unused space in the post you quoted. Pretty weird, huh?

I have worked at a fire station, and at a hospital. As a medic/flight medic. I also completed pre-med a few years ago and applied to 3 schools. At the time moving was not an option, and i was not accepted at either local program. Coupled with the few remaining years i could practice i opted not to reapply, and ended up with a dream job at the DOD. Ie, i have the requisite experience to make an informed judgement.

1. This is not an ethical choice, it is a duty. There is no choice between a patient. The fact that you would suggest that it could be should perhaps make your state board examine your status.

2. Why are you playing a 20 min per game/unpausable game at work? That is a recipe for game failure, and frustration. Go with a different game at work, and save this one for off hours.

3. In the event of being on call at home....once again if you have a 20-30 response, as is common, it is game fail to play. How often are you being called in? Most trauma team/specialists on call only have the pager for a percentage of their off time. Exception here is paid-on-call FF's, but departments that size dont have a large call volume, or may have response as optional.

Yes you have the potential to go pink, play a couple more games and you wont be. Either you play enough to make that up quick, or you play so little you have horrile luck that the 1 hour you play a week always gets interrupted.
