Kick afk player feature

Post by BannZay » Wed May 08, 2019 9:42 pm

Make new voting type "Move to spectactors AFK player"

I see this as new tab in "Call vote" menu where you can target only players who does not provide input last N seconds.
Players should know they are kicking exactly afk player and this vote should count only votes against so it will be easily to succeed if there is a lot of players who does not care.
If target player provide any input during vote then immediately fail this one voting

This is ridiculous. First of all you could be kicked by regular vote.
Basically, you will be kicked out only if you are making other players race harder.

Also this vote should alert DDNet client(as you receive personal msg) so you always can just come back to game and provide some input to prevent kick, what is nice part of it

no you couldnt, fokkonaut is totally right, people would press f3 at this special afk kick even when its a fv because it seems legit for them, sometimes afk tees are blocking spots or something, but it would only make it easier to kick people which are far in map waiting for help

If you far from PC then it is fair to kick you off. Otherwise your "dead" body might kill actual players who play the game. Where unfair is?

Furthermore, if you actually blocked few ppl by afking they can not kick you off if you immediately back after they prompted you or started new vote type against you since all you have to done is back to game and press any key and vote dissapear.

I see it as just awesome feature because:
1. It is fair! (and this is THE MOST important thing in voting system)
2. It prevents funvoting
And then and only then
3. It solves the problem of kicking REALLY afk player on a full server

What the heck you talking about??? Did you read anything from what I wrote above?

First - being afk can never be part of the game. Game is a process, its not a movie. How doing nothing can be a game ? Following this logic - cheating hacks and active blocking also part of the game what should not be punished ? NO! Active or passive blocking is NOT part of the game we want to have!
Second - it is not even punishment, regular vote to kick afk player by regular vote is a punishment for everybody. Voting ppl have to check whether it afk or not, guy who being kicked may not be even afk.

I gladly asking you to think before post

i gladly ask you to not trashtalk
cheating is ofc a part of the game. Especially you know that because you use mechanics in your maps as intended way which are called cheats in other maps because its not how the part was supposed to work :-) Using brain is a part of the game, so is cheating not to be punished.

As long as you are not blocking a spot who cares if you afk one week in a map?
If an afk tee blocks i never made the experience that it was impossible to get him voted to spectators, maybe takes some votes or calling for mod but its easily doable
