The abuse is uncalled for, but the report seems legit.  I would be annoyed if a member of my team was afk.

Reported to Microsoft or wg? Because wg has never taken action when afkers are reported to my knowledge especially not when it's not a regular thing. Unless you mean you got a "reported" message which people people do for everything.

 

    tbh this community or at least good parts of it are toxic but don't let them get to you. Block and move on and report when the same "passionate" players push and teamkill people for not playing their way.

Let's clear this up.

Were you on the phone before you selected to play? I assume not but had to ask. Because if you were then, why?

Was it an emergency? If so completely understandable and I doubt one AFK will matter much, otherwise tell her you'll call her right back your busy or just finish the battle and call her back. 

 

 


Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

Whoever reported you needs to get a life. Stuff happens and sometimes you need to step away to take care of something, its a game. Now if it happens over and over that's different. Also I had bad live teammates that were more of a problem than any afk player I have run across.

How does someone die 20 sec into the game at their own spawn? :amazed:

Yeah but they usually only do it to serial offenders though no? Not from people reporting every time someone stops moving

that doesn't sound like wg so much as Microsoft (or sony) and those systems get abused pretty easily if you dare to respond

bummer. Sorry to hear. When some one says they were "AFK" I usually assume they mean for the match. And you know what they say about "assuming".

that's kind of the point. Getting those daily isn't normal not even in call of duty did I get that and I got hate mail fairly regularly there.
