AFK Players and reporting system

Already I have come across several people going AFK and it is ruining the game. There needs to be more systems in place to detect AFK abusers as all they have to do to get around it is tie their sticks together. Along with that, there should be a way to report such abusers to weed them out or at least have an avoid feature so they wont be in our games.

Yea, there are more and more afk bots. Making one small movement every few seconds. It’s annoying as hell. I reported someone thorugh the ticket system but there was never a response. It’s sad to see a game without functioning reporting system.

The way the battlepass has been implemented makes it easier for afk farmers to just join a 4v4 match with a bot which moves every few second. Grind up to lvl 100 of the battlepass and sell the account to whoever is ready to pay 50$ for a lvl100 battlepass account.

I agree with this and I’d like to add that there be more penalties for leaving games! So many teammates have bailed due to a bad start or just for random reasons, in both casual AND ranked. It’s getting sort of ridiculous. It feels as if 3/5 games has at LEAST one quitter. It’s a shame.

Yes! I would to report afk Players too, like others games (League of Legends)

1.any measures that prevent AFK players from staying can be circumvented with macros on PC even if you use the xbox version

2.Halo support exists to report players for AFKing, reporting through xbox live probably doesnt do anything at all. It takes two minutes to file a ticket and grab their recent history to show they are AFK and practically botting.

I’m worried with this sort of penalty thing, people who are reporting might see someone having legitimate connection issues and think they’re doing the AFK thing or leaving purposefully instead of what’s actually happening. Some nights the game crashes on me three or four times in the middle of matches (one night I crashed after dying in three separate oddball matches). Should we be penalized for things that are out of our control like that? Like, I’m not trying to be pissy here. I’m genuinely wanting to know if there’s a way for AFK botting/leaving matches on purpose vs connection problems to be differentiated, and not to penalize people who are simply having internet or system problems.

I’d be really upset if I got dinged for something I can’t control just because some other jerks are taking advantage of the progression system.

Usually it involves checking play history to ensure it’s a habitual issue, rather than random occurrences of d/c’ing.
