anyone else think the idle timer is ****ing worthless ****. i go downstairs for a few minutes to take care of something and i get back and im kicked and cant even reconnect. this system needs a rework.
I only lurk anymore..
I've been kicked two times for AFK. Both times I shared control for the entire team and said "Micro me please."
When I come back to the computer I've gotten kicked, what sucks the most is that I can't even reconnect.
Also two of my friends have said that they've gotten AFK-kicked when they were looking for a specific item (from DotA).
really true and one of the only things i really hate about this game
edit: i never had a chance to reconnect after afk autokick, even after relogging/restarting the game
They were afk kicked becuase within the five minutes of their last attack/gain of exp they have failed to replicate either one of those, and thus, the game registered them as afk. More then likely your team didn't micro you, because I had a hammerstorm go afk for upwards of 20-30 minutes but not be kicked because we kept him farming neutrals.

My biggest gripe is that it no longer seems to give the warning messages, you just get dropped out of the blue.
It may sound hard but if you are afk for 5 mins you deserve to get kicked !!!
If I play a match i want to play with 4 teammates the complete match and if someone wants to go afk for longer than 5 mins he should get the permission of his teammates.
Iam for a sitout vote, that is a team vote like the pause vote and if 4 guys agree you can sitout and the others get control over your unit, your skill,s your money.........and if you want to play again you can sit in.
There is a pause feature. Tell your team you have to go afk and ask them to pause the game so they won't be 4v5.
Personally, I've never been kicked for being afk... I don't start a game unless I have time to finish it. I think you deserve a leave if you leave your team even just 5 minuets can be a long time in HoN.
What if nature calls? What if someone calls you?
Are you supposed to ignore life to simply play a game?
Some of us actually have other things to worry about then just playing video games all day long.
Most people will not allow you the luxury of pausing. I'm not argueing the kick. I just wish it gave you the option of rejoining.
Not sure how a sitout/sitin system would work (or how buggy it could be) but would be interesting to see implemented.
Of course S2 is probably already working on fixing this, I wonder how they'll set up the system.

An S2 dev said that this system will be tweaked later on. So don't worry.
