Got dev struck by a BB's first salvo, game marked me as AFK

So, I was sailing my Ibuki towards a cap to support our DDs there and got spotted really early. Dodged a bit of fire. The DD that spotted me got spotted by our DDs and I fired one salvo at him. Then a Montana just landed a devastating strike as I was trying to get into cover. The game marked me as being AFK.

I'm attaching the result screen. You can see the part where I died less than 2 mins in having taken a total of 7 hits, which is well, fine... The dangers of playing a high tier cruiser too aggressively. The "Inactivity in Battle" part is completely inaccurate as I was moving the whole time (otherwise I'd have never been close enough to be spotted in the first place).

I'm concerned that your attempts to toughen enforcement without having a better way of screening out false positives is going to be a problem. I've certainly killed cruisers before they ever got in range as a battleship or won a torpedo duel super early as a DD against a guy who never fired his guns because he was trying to line up the perfect torpedo or was sitting in his own smoke and never saw it coming. Maybe a minimum time alive before you can be marked as AFK would help? (You're almost certainly never dying that fast if you don't move out of your start area.)

That seems harsh, so moving isn't enough to show that you played. Guess that is to defend against heading to the edge of the map.

I would send in a ticket along with your replay.

I really need to start saving those :(

Actually, it probably wouldn't have helped. I played a game in my Minotaur while waiting for the Ibuki to get unstuck in the game. I think it would have gotten overwritten?

No you're fine. Each game has it's own individual file so it will be there in the replays folder.

Jesus dude, do you know what the penalty for that is? He's better off just turning plaid than trying to deal with customer lack of service.

when they first explained the afk system i had high expectations. i thought surely they would have tested it thoroughly like they do with most other things.

i'm extremely disappointed with how much they dropped the ball on this.

It is just a suggestion, I did not say he had too.:Smile_honoring:

It seems as if they made a mess of things. I am really starting to question the capabilities of the play testers or whether Wargaming is even listening to them. Either way it is needing some sort of change.

Just to clarify...10km is the minimum distance required to not get the 0 credits/0 XP & the ever loved "you have not participated in this battle"...that now comes w/a pink warning/status (not sure which...did you turn pink OP or just get that message at the bottom of your results screen)?

Before the update I had a 9.94 & a 10.28 (in which I never entered a cap) for comparison w/the 10.28 giving me pity XP even though I never got any kind of ribbon...so in that .34km difference I'm assuming the rounded off 10km is the dividing line.

I suppose, I should say it's good that they have some safeguard then, but apparently it's still not enough to prevent false positives.
