Discussion: The Afk Manager - 10/18/2013 posted in Team Fortress 2

[size=14pt]What is it?[/size]

The AFK manager is exactly what it sounds like. It's a manager tool designed to regulate and deal with AFK players. Before this, the way AFK handleing worked as anyone AFK for 3 minutes would be kicked. This lead to a lot of complaints about afk players on a team causing natural imbalances. If these players were kicked, many times they'd rejoin with harsh words about being afk for only a few moments or as one person put it to me "not allowed to get up for a glass of water".

So now, this AFK system will push you to spectate after being AFK for a minute. Then after two minutes of being in spectate, you are then kicked. Meaning, you still have 3 minutes to be AFK. But only a minute to actually stay on your team. I feel this is a better option as it allows you to deal wit hwhatever while not mucking up your team.
