People go AFK all the time.  I do it.  You do it.  Bob does it.

No big deal.

WG, we are ALL thankful that we can leave the game for a bit and not have it log out in our  brief absence!

But...

It sure would be nice if there were a way for friends in the game to know we were AFK.

I invite friends and clan mates to divisions and the invite often just sits there and hangs out.  Just a wee bit aggravating at times.

But...

I then realize they are just AFK.  It happens.  I do it.  They do it.  Bob does it.

But we can do better...

Give us a way to set our status as AFK so folks know we are not presently active in the game even though we show as being in the game.

Maybe there could be a key stroke.

Maybe the game just denotes us as AFK once 5 minutes of inactivity have passed.

Maybe we have a status bar of some sort we can set.

I don't know.

But...

There has to be a better way than what we have (er, don't have) now.

I believe there is!  You know there is!  Bob agrees!

I agree, and have but one question:  who's Bob?  :Smile_hiding:

5 minutes is 1/4 of a match; it's too much. I'd make that 2.5 minutes.

I think OP is talking about in port, not in game

Inactivity!  That means in port and AFK.

Being in a match would be rather active, yes?

And the 5 minutes is just an example.  WG may make it however long they deem best.  2 minutes?  3?  Whatever.
