AFK check

Postby kourt » Thu Jan 02, 2020 1:11 am

With the amount of AFK'ers in the game, could we just get a simple check that if you haven't voted or used any actions for 2 days and 2 nights in a row, you have to prove you're not AFK or it just kills you? I'm tired of games stretching into draws / losses because someone like the GF is AFK. Just a simple button you have to push on the 2nd night of doing nothing, or you die in the morning. Then an AFK GF with a dead mafioso can't hold an entire team hostage.

Kinda destroys a jester strat, albeit a dumb jester strat but it still is one.
So probably not, just report them I guess?

I know you shouldn't need to but yeah.


Ideally though, implementing mafia tactical kills would solve that issue as the AFK GF could get puppeted into killing or someone else can do the kill

It doesn't hurt anyone. All you would have to do is push a button at night that wouldn't tell anyone anything. Unless you're using an AFK'er strat as jester. Which is a fairly dubious strategy, IMO.


As far as the whole bussing the AFK GF, that's fine in early game, but not when it gets to 3v2 and you have majority but you can't vote any town and you can't kill anyone. As a note, I do also report anyone (on either side) for AFK, but it just drags out and ruins games it happens in.

I fully support this. If implemented, BMG wouldn't even need to create anything to make this work, either (like a button at night), as evident by their 5 minute afk-check in menus. All it takes to "show yourself" as non-afk to the game is clicking anywhere within that 5 minute period, so something like that could be put in-game with a more strict check (e.g. every 1-2 minutes).

That won't always be the case, such as if they randomly go AFK in the middle of the game where you have already claimed a different role. Or it is a 3v1 but AFKer isn't there to vote up the Last Mafia/Townie resulting in a Draw/Loss.

Oh yea, that afk has saved my ass as NK many times. Never kill an afk as NK.

Sometimes unexpected things happen during the game and they just have to leave for like a minute, however I don't think afk check is something we need tbh.

Leaving for a minute is one thing. Leaving for 3 full day cycles is throwing at the very least. Especially when you are the GF and mafioso is already dead.
