    Default Kicked from Ranked Horde due to inactivity? BS!

    So some guys and I were playing Horde on Overpass and I bought the Silverback. I placed it at the middle part where the Scorcher spawns and was preparing to gun down anything that made it past our defences. My team was pretty good, ergo, I didn't have much to do. The game decided to kick me due to inactivity. So, for being a team player (not taking all the kills) and using my brains, I get kicked huh? And the game even has a ribbon awarded to someone who gets no kills during a wave. Please explain to me how this makes sense. I wasn't AFK, I was constantly rotating the Silverback to check the approaches, so what the hell? Why would this even happen? Because if the game is going to punish team players, I am through with this POS

    So all you did was look around? No moving or shooting?


    Didn't they change the booting criteria to you having to move (LS)?

    This was to stop idle boosters, but I might be wrong :/

    They should increase the number to 2/3 waves instead of 1.

    Its annoying; I was responding to a message from a friend (it was wave 3 so I knew my team could handle it) and I was kicked for standing still for 1 wave.

    I remember once while I was playing Horde, I had to go to the loo, then when I got back and picked up my controller, the second I was about to start playing again, it kicked me for inactivity lol. ._.

    the booting system isn't based on who many waves you're not playing, it's based on time. If you're inactive for 2 minutes, you will get kicked.

    that sucks... maybe they should include some kind of prompt, "You are about to be flagged for inactivity. please press "B" to continue" or something like that.

    when did they do this? it cant be true, you cant help if no enemies come your way. if youre all guarding an entrace, then theres a good chance you'll only move the camera, especially if youre planted with a silverback, or in a turret

    Epic should make it 10/15 minutes for a AFK kick, and after 10-13 minutes, a prompt would appear to tell you that you will be kicked soon, and to continue press any button.

    Move around a little. Shoot your gun in a random direction..
    The kick timer does need to be adjusted for horde though

    If the time were 15 minutes, that would be way too long. You would only have to move a total of 4 times within a one hour time span and you could be doing other things like watching TV or playing another game while sitting idle.

    The time limit is fine. I hate when people sit around and they don't help.

    I personally think that you get kicked too quickly without playing. You only have to be gone for about 30 seconds and you're gone. It needs to be longer.

    I had a moment like this today. I went up two flights of stairs in between waves (somewhere in the teens), gone less than 90 seconds. and i got kicked. I even heard my screen going back to the main screen as i was walking back down. I'm not going to pee in a bottle just to play this game. This really needs to be fixed.
