AFK players need to be put on probation...

I'm tired of starting a match and some guy on my team just sits in the spawn for most of the game or the whole game. All this does is give the enemy team killstreaks, it helps the enemy team win, and it makes our team lose.

These players need to be put on probation just like the people who quit multiple games.

Yes! I agree 100%! The game needs to just look for lack of button pushing and if it notices it, kicks the player and places them on a 5 minute probation. I can get behind this 110%! Great idea.

If they don't move for a period of time, they get kicked but yeah, it does hurt your team when you have a player like that on your team. I never understood why people didn't just exit the lobby. You have to quite several games in a row in a short period of time to get probation anyway's.

It only hurts the team if they keep getting killed, giving points to the other team.  If they are a really crappy player and would otherwise die a lot, sitting in the corner may be better, at least they may pick off a headless chicken or two while they're there

I totally agree. But also, once they get kicked, it takes so long jst for a new player to join in...

That's true. That is a downfall also.

I look at it this way.

I rather have 4v6, then have a total of 5 players on my team, with one guy giving the enemy easy kills.

I think it's a form of reverse boosting, I think it mostly happens in party games. I think it stems from the skill based matchmaking.

Why would people reverse boost, unless there a phake PM?
