I experienced my very first AFKers in Arathi Basin today.
I was shocked. I was horrified.
I burst into tears at this heresy. Here we were, 11 horde strong, trying to fight off 15 alliance. For the entire battle, alliance held 2 bases, and horde held two bases, and there was always one or two nodes that were in conflict. Sometimes alliance would get three, sometimes horde would get three.
Sometimes Alliance zerged mine, and at one point alliance was capping everything except blacksmith.
And these ungrateful bastards sat in the starting room, getting their daily quest done for doing nothing at all.
Did I spam “AFK” report them? Darn tooting I did. I even went to the /bg chat and said “Report those damn AFKers”
To which some twisted soul replied “type /afk report to see the interface”.
After he said that, three people on horde side promptly left the battleground
So that puts horde at 8 versus 15.
I took off my clothes and danced naked at farm.
7 horde versus 15 alliance.
Did we lose? Yes, we lost rather horribly at that point.
Was I happy? Damn right I was.
Some jackhole AFKers aren’t getting a daily quest done on my watch.
