    TANKS and AFK

    It SUX so damn deep to enter a tank fight and find you have 1 or more people in your team AFK.
    This is worse than BGs with home base full of idlers.

    It would be perhaps be fair that if you are kicked out of tanks because of idling, you should lose points in your runes.

    Now it seems that people log in their alts to get +1 +1 and let others suffer.
    NO GOOD!

    Yea... that's one of the exploits some ppls do because they're too lazy or weak to fight against others.

    It's also one of the way to "honor farm", which has now been deem as a ban-able offense by R2...

    for the most part I like Tank Battle, the draw back is getting stunned to death, I hate that talent it makes you a sitting duck lol. as for afker's, I say if there is no effort, there should be no reward.

    Btw, I think tank should have Room Lists like Arena so you know who usually afk then you don't go with them xd

    My team usually win in under 3 mins if opposing had just 1 afker, LOL.

    It doesn't matter how good you are, if you're placed in with 2 afker, your team is going to lose, why? because all the opposing had to do is just constantly kill the afkers over and over for mass points.
    And even if they don't, they'll just all target you, 4 Tanks vs 1, who'll win? LOL (and no you can "try" to wall block.... but you can't, because they can always just go from all sides to hit you, you can't hide if they come from all 4 sides)
    And once you're dead from being hit by 4 Tanks, they'll just head back and kill off the afker for easy points.

    Yes, this seems to be the good solution to an ugly thing.

Yesterday I logged in for the last 2 minutes of the game and managed to finish first, now compare that to someone else who logged in from the start play 30 minutes yes 30 minutes of tedium and not even place. Is there anyone out there who genuninely enjoys playing that tank battle for 30 minutes?
    I dont. I would not play if it wasnt for the runes.
    The fight I entered today lasted ca 5 mins with 2 in my team who didnt fire a shot.

    U may be the top player perhaps, even if it is very unlikely.
    But you will not win the fight.

    Find a group of tank party with your guildies or usual party members.

    If they pull this stunt without proper reasoning, you know who not to get for your future parties.

    In worst case, quit your tank battle and find another team and start again. You can start a new tank battle even if there's only 2 minutes left as long as there's opponent. Only downside if you started too late is there's risk that there's no opponent...
