Ever since they changed the "AFK" rules I've been waiting on this day, and it finally came -

Spoiler

Tried to get into a battle - game froze and crashed - attempted to reload, and after about 15 minutes of the "game loading" screen before the sign in screen with 0 progress, had to kill it with task manager again to clear my screen and knew the battle was over due to the time trying to load the first time and the second.

 

Every other game played fine, internet fine, hell, first game back even loaded early into the match, with the same ship. I have run every possible test, experiment, etc and have eliminated every possible source on my end. This has only really been a major issue ever since I was forced to install the Wargaming Game Center - it was a very rare late load occasionally without and not nearly as bad. It's something in the WGC, something on your guys end, or both. 

 

I said months ago people who are not actually AFK and have some sort of issue with the game or internet would get clipped by these changes, would end up penalized, now I know of at least one. Hopefully I can avoid  it crashing and causing this again for at least a couple weeks now.

It happened to me once since 0.7.12 was released. I immediately ran the repair tool and it hasn't happened since.

It sucks almost as much as a team being down a ship.

This is yet another instance of punishing everyone for the infractions of a few. Most burdensome laws are like that. That said, a few players were abusing the system and farming wins by just entering a match, leaving it, then repeating with all the ships in their port. I would think that such behavior could be tracked and the players individually banned though, rather than having someone who suffered a power outage, etc., have to be labeled "unsportsmanlike" for something that was no fault of their own.

The few issues I've had with the game operating correctly were all fixed by the repair tool. It's amazing that so few people know where it is and how to run it. This might be a good subject for a WG video, maybe one with the funny captain that couldn't get his ship/game to run until the fish told him how to.

I was pink yesterday, I felt shame, then I wasn't pink. 

No one else seemed to care.

I think that could be classified as assisting them.

It was a teachable moment, and my 22 knot backside wasn't going to make it to the enemies on the far side of the map anyway.  lol
