[REQUEST][CHANNEL][BATTLE] Force afk players to spec in channel

Post by Monk9443 » 22 Nov 2018, 21:38

Hello,

title says it all. If you could please force all afk players to spec in channel, specifically battle.
Since the titlepack in itself doesn't do afk kick could you implement it on channels. Shouldn't be hard.

Would be a nice QoL fix, since many people join a channel and go afk. It doesn't impact lobby channels so impact isn't that big.
But since battle mode is dead except on channel, it would be a nice change. Some other channels could also profit off of this.

(Also i would really appreciate the formatting in chat to not be broken that easily)

BR,

I second that, or "+1" in short.

Auto afk management works on many servers, why not on the Channel? Afk players constantly kill the balancing and make it difficult to join the server if there are all 24 slots occupied. Sounds funny, but that happens sometimes. :-)

Yes! Program creators can now enable a new setting (S_AutoManageAFK) when they create a server configuration for Battle. It will kick AFK players to spectator mode. It is now enabled on the Zyix Battle program on the Shootmania channel.

Would be nice to see it in Royal as well
No risk, no fun!

Thank you for implementing this change.
Hopefully it will raise player retention on the server.

Since you've shown me that you really do read these forums, i'm going to open a few more threads.
Would be nice to get an answer if something is being considered or not.
