full server with many idlers

it makes little sense to have a full server with loads of idlers / afk'ers

simple fra is often like that. its common to see 5 or more when full

some of these players often idle for entire rounds

any long-time idlers (around 5 or more minutes) in a full server should be kicked or banned in my opinion

they block outside players from entering the server, and often unbalance teams

why arent any simple admins at least kicking them ?

opinions ?

...

I played on Tanks a Lot today. 40% of those didn't play and one of them was sitting in a Tiger smile

There were 21 Player and 9 of them weren't playing.

Well at all I'm with you, but, I can only speak for the RtR / SW Server. It doesn't support that many players (thank god), and sometimes there are also players, that just lurk a bit around. (Me included in the past, to be honest). Its about the Admins to decide what to do... Gotta know that some ppl having a smoke, need to do "human stuff" or just trying to learn from playing ppl, since the nose cam is on...

As said, I can only speak for the RtR / SW Server, and I also got kicked from Admins just for "doing nothing"... smile

But I learned a lot from "doing nothing".

But yes, if the server seems full and ppl keep staying on the server for more than one round, I would kick them. Not ban, just kick...

Also I think it's selfexplaining, that if you see the server is almost full, you just disconnect to not block others out, when you know what's going on.
