The Pink Thing

I am wondering if any of you folks have had this happen.

I had entered into a random battle and maybe a minute or so after the start the game froze and i ended up getting booted out.

When i finally got back to my port i find a message saying i have a 3 game penalty for teamkill or leaving the game early.

I didnt teamkill or leave early or anything to make me pink just trouble connecting to the server.

I am sure i got reported afk but ok 3 games pink no big deal.

just wondering about this.

Do a search for AFK in the forums - lots of thread on the subject.

With the last patch, an automatic pink penalty is imposed if you are AFK (and a disconnect would make you "AFK").  I have been disconnected/crashed since the patch, but it has been later in the game when I suppose I had already contributed enough to avoid the penalty.

Patch Notes, wonderful things. Shame no one reads them.

Yep!  It has happened to me several times since the patch.  The mechanic is broken and WG needs to fix it.

Actually you did leave early, just not voluntarily. If it doesn't happen often it is meaningless just be aware that any team damage is reflected back at you when you are pink.

WG instituted an overbearing automated system to punish their players for being afk. 

It turns out AFK is still here, so it appears to be the game that has the issues, more so than the players.

WG pisses off a large number of players for no good reason.....Profit? :cap_hmm:

Don't be so salty to the OP. The only way this stupid mechanic will ever change is if enough people leave feedback on the forums. If you don't want to hear it, you don't have to waste your time commenting on or reading this thread.

Thank you for the reply.

I have read the different posts on this subject, there are a bunch of them.

I guess i was just looking for other people thoughts that this has happened to so i apologize for not being more clear on that.

Exactly. A 2- or 3-game warning is laughably insignificant.  It's astonishing how many people feel like their whole lives have been forever tainted by something that a few spins with the Battle Cruiser Black Swan in Co-op can easily put to rest. More so because it has become commonplace.

Nobody is going to get the "Orange is the New Pink"  TK/AFK punishment for the occasional tech glitch.
