Add a votekicking or something for people AFK-ing in UQs, specially UH

🍿 Oh, Hi I'm just passing by... πŸ‘‹

cool story bro, not condoning their action but it also looks kind of weird when there's 3 accounts newly made with 1 post each just to flame 1 person.

I know who chrys is, theyre legit toxic and those screenshots are real

This is a great suggestion and will add to our suggestion pool to prevent players from going AFK, especially during Urgent Quests. Let's wait if it will be considered in the future :).

No it's not a "great suggestion", in fact it's the opposite of one. This would lead to a lot of unjustified kicks without a group / MPA DPS meter to fact-check the accusers. I've seen how such a feature gets abused in multiple games now and it shouldn't even be considered unless you're also willing to provide tools to combat false accusations (which SEGA clearly is not).

100% agree here this suggestion will lead to more problems than it will fix.

Just join an alliance and stop running with PUGs, it'll amplify your experience on pso2. Also SEGA, enable 'Expert Matchmaking' which is currently disabled in our version for whatever reason.

There isn't even expert matching, so vote kicking will never come true.

La la la la la, ee what's this?

It already has major flaws even in FFXIV good luck if the others are a group of friends or free company members and they simply don't like your class/playstyle., Off you go. we would need countermeasures to keep it from being abused.

I can see this working if the trigger to kick is someone not moving for a period of time or not doing any or extremely little damage such as pricks who come in with all class launchers, etc.

We need two things: Expert Matching using level 90+tasks and some way to quantify a gear score so people don't go into UH without 15 star weapons and 13 star units. I was in an MPA for Final Lament that took 25 bloody minutes recently and I don't have that kind of time to carry a bunch of bad players who don't bother bringing proper gear or skills. You should NEVER enter UH without a 15 star weapon and all 13 star units (or at least the Ofze 2/Claesis Legs combo at 12 stars), you have literally no excuse. All should be max grind level. If you do, you're holding your group back, period. The two biggest MMORPGs in the world have this gear score idea implemented already, time for PSO2 to do the same.

@BloodyKyona So what are Summoners supposed to do then? Their endgame weapon is a 14*. Soaring Blades users are also in a similar situation where the Jupiter Tullus is the best weapon up until they get access to their S5, and new players don't get a free Rivalate key/weapon for it. Gear gating doesn't work when you have ridiculous outliers like that.

Theres also the 14* Spread Needle which has always been op. The new S5 for it only does half the bonus damage so even on a good 15* weapon the S5 does less damage overall (or with enough juice then just comparable/par). Granted it shouldnt be used for single targets but its great for scattered mobbing and a nice piece of kit to have to switch with (it also suits many sections of the Lament/Interception UQ's).

Given such outliers (like AIC-L has said), rather than simply saying 15* weapons perhaps you should just say good weapons lol (...or 15* and high end/specialist 14* as thats what these weapons are really) which Im sure is the gist of what you mean.

I could see that being an improvement, you would just have to hope they don’t move at the last second and reset the clock to just go AfK again.

It is really getting bad, on ship 3, had an UH VR training. 4 people had troll weapons - 3 people using +0 13* stuff they found on the ground, one person using a regular Atlas (not EX), and we ended up failing the first emergency quest, all of them using 11-12* units, none were upgraded at all so they died over and over, causing people to cuss them out then leave.

It was the worst MPA I've ever seen in this game. I've had afk'ers in other UQs before, but this was a total different level of IDGAF. People just don't care because NGS is coming, so they are just gonna leech every bit of meseta for fashion and not spend a single cent on upgrading their gear, dragging everyone else down. It's so selfish.

You don't even need fancy 15star, the redux 14 star potentials from the RWB shop are fine, but coming into an MPA with a +0 13* is trolling.

People with 13 star weapons and under 12 star units should not even be allowed to enter the que for UH and should be auto-kicked if they switch to such gear mid-quest OR stay still or are afk for three minutes. While we're at it, make it possible to join UQs already in progress if they aren't full. Also, XP for people who are dead when an enemy is killed; I can't tell you how many times I go an entire UQ without even getting hit only to get killed one second before the boss dies due to bad luck and thus miss out on everything (which happens way more in bad MPAs that take over 15 minutes in a UQ because my skill level drops considerably after doing something that long without a moment to rest, another reason I hate bad players.)

@GM-Sirius A better solution would be to make a solo version for all UGs so i never have to deal with these people again. Then the kick feature couldn't be misused and the only one you could blame for your failures is yourself. The best solution actually. At least it should be added for all future UGs.
