Don't afk in my strikes.

I have nothing better to do but kill your guardian and your KD until it sends you to orbit. Enjoyed every second of this, more so than doing the actual strike. "YOU COULD'VE RAN X AMOUNT OF TIMES THROUGH STRIKES AND HURR YOU NEED TO ACKNOWLEDGE YOU ARE WORSE THAN SATAN BECAUSE YADDA YADDA YADDA" Bruh, 919 strikes so far on my Titan alone. I'm good. Believe me. I'm set for vanguard marks and all that. Chill. Edit 1: Holy crap, 14 likes? THIS WAS POSTED FOR FUN. Edit 2: So... I'm guessing the Destiny community agrees with me? 27 likes so far. Edit 3: I love the irony of all the people coming to the thread to tell me no one cares. Are you guys serious? lol Edit 4 (THE BIG ONE): [b]He wasn't afk for a few minutes-[/b] This guy was away long enough for us to push him to Hellmouth and drop him into the hole over 60 times. When he finally left, he was alive and had not produced a ghost. Either he shut off his console, went to dashboard, or the game returned him to orbit for being away. [b]He had/has a history of AFKing in games-[/b] We looked on Destiny Database, looked at his recent games, and saw an obvious pattern. 15 of the past 25 games this player got 0-4 kills, several of the strikes were incomplete, and all were started with full fireteams. [b]The 'other guy' who was carrying us is my girlfriend, we were in a party together-[/b] Yeah, again, assumptions make an ass out of some of you. She helped push him over, helped kill him all those times, and helped res him. We had a hell of a time laughing and making fun of the guy the WHOLE TIME. This was fun. Maybe even a bit of a bonding experience for us. [b]Killing him over and over was far more fun than actually running the strike-[/b] We laughed, joked, and even put on Alpha Lupi to res him faster. We had some random there trying to help us and invited him to the party to talk. If the time is what has you bothered, it was late in the week. Vanguard mark were maxed, Sneezes had already gotten like 6 exotics from the Raids and from Nightfall. We were just playing to play. [b]"No one cares"-[/b] Since apparently its a cardinal sin for me to mention the likes, lets say this: it was trending, tons of people commented, plenty of them seemed to care (either enough to complain or enough to say "JOB WELL DONE"). You are simply wrong. [b]Afk? AFK?! HOW DARE YOU, I HAVE NO KEYBOARD- [/b] Well its really used as a general term. You're splitting hairs and have missed the point. Not sure what else to tell you. [b]BUT I AFK ALL THE TIME LIFE HAPPENS-[/b] If you afk for a full strike, you are part of the problem. Yes, I understand, sometimes the dog needs to go out. Yes, I know, kids get into trouble. If you are away for a few minutes, no biggy. Come back, lets play, good luck. But if you can't sit down and play for like 8 minutes to finish a strike without being interrupted, maybe stop trying to play something that forces multiplayer. Or you know, don't have a kid you aren't ready for. http://images.wikia.com/mungyodance/images/3/39/1354237059761.jpg [b]We didn't use sparrows to kill him. [/b] [u]I will never ever carry an afker through a strike. No, its not hard to run. No, I will not let someone get a reward for not playing the game. [/u] EDIT 5: [quote]Quitters Never Win While finessing a boss encounter is all well and good, you won’t appreciate the difference unless you actively participate in the Strike. That might make all the sense in the world to you, but there are players in our world who prefer to hang out in the rear with the gear and let their Fireteam brave all the danger. Once again, John Hopson is on the case. User Research, after all, is all about the science of improving the player experience. JH: In Destiny’s community, the efforts of a dedicated player can have a huge impact on the experience of hundreds or thousands of other players. Most of the time, this is awesome. When someone is willing to put in the time as a Raid sherpa, a clan leader, or a forum moderator, we all benefit and Destiny comes a little bit closer to its potential as a shared world. Unfortunately, there are a few individuals who have put in that same level of monomaniacal effort into being jerks. Sitting idle in Strikes and PvP has been on our radar for a while now, but it’s become clear that a small number of the worst idlers are responsible for damaging the experiences of thousands of other players. One player not contributing in an activity might seem like a small thing, but it can make a Weekly Heroic Strike unbeatable or make a Crucible match unwinnable. Those little bits of damage to the experiences other players adds up over time. This week, we’ve restricted a small number of the most toxic players from matchmaking. The restrictions we’re putting on their accounts are temporary and apply only to the activities where they were chronically idle. If the affected players keep up this behavior after the restrictions lapse, we will apply stronger and (eventually) permanent restrictions on their accounts. How this policy applies to you: 1) It probably doesn’t. Do not panic just because you had to put down the controller in a Strike last week when the pizza guy showed up just as your fireteam reached Valus Ta'aurc. There is no way you will accidentally be flagged under this policy unless you are a truly dedicated idler, someone who has really gone out their way to repeatedly cheat their teammates. 2) Please be sure to use the reporting system to let us know how your teammates are affecting your Destiny experience, both positively and negatively. We will never act on player reports alone, but we use those reports to find areas and individuals where our automated detection systems aren’t working correctly. They are an invaluable part of how we tune the live experience of our game.[/quote] Bungie posted this, here: https://www.bungie.net/en/News/News?aid=12738 Pretty sure that means we win. Go ahead, go afk.

    I had an AFKer once in the Dust Palace, dude was moving around so he wouldn't get kicked to orbit. I noticed this 1/4 through the strike so i messaged the other random teammate to wipe. We all die and he respawns with us. He starts punching me out of frustration but i ignored it and he carried on with the strike with us. When we got to the Scions, i noticed he pulled out his rocket so everytime he tried to shoot, i got in front of him. The other random noticed this and made sure he placed a bubble down whenever he tried to shoot a rocket. Out of frustration he leaves but not before he sent me a hate essay.

      Funny thing is in the Alpha my brother killed by other brother with a sparrow the first day and it was hilarious and then lead him to killing everyone even friendlies in crucible with vehicles during the Alpha.... something may be wrong with that one..... But now is FANTASTIC that AFK'ers are murdered the same way as a punishment. Hope a Destiny style Bungie police video is made about the Ban Hammering. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjwaK8RvsxI

    • I support the idea of not afking. But what if they have to use the bathroom? Or more commonly for me, their battery dies and they have to find the charging cable?

        Good. I kill afkers until they leave. Always report them and I don't finish strikes until they leave. Looking forward to bungie dropping the ban hammers. Keep up the good work.

        • Its also fun to do the side ram with your sparrow into a wall. It usually kills them if there's nowhere to drop them into.

          • It isnt 'ironic' that people are commenting 'nobody cares'. Its known as a paradox. People are telling you they dont care because simply, they don't care. We couldnt care less that you and your partner had an afk in your strike. Its boring and has happened to almost everybody on here. Another example of a paradox is never say never incase you still dont understand. And if you think 16 likes, pushing an afk into hellmouth 69 times and getting a trending post on a forum is worthy of any morsel of respect, even though i dont know you- i pity you dude. Reach level 33, step outside

            • Keep up the good work. I do the same thing regularly. And then they get reported. What rashly purses me off is when they run up to the room before an engagement and afk while you kill everything. Then when its over they run up to the room just before the next fight. And just sit there. I call it [i]active afk [/i]. The bastards are in the game. They just don't want to participate. And if you try to kill them, they will start moving but they will never go into the firefight
