@Drakaina said in [PSO2+NGS] Idle Inactivity Timeout to save resources & give real depiction of player population:
This is a bad idea I believe sometimes I just wait in the lobby for events to come and or my friends to come online so I will be pretty annoyed if the game kept on kicking me off
I mean you could just move around in the game before the AFK timer would trigger every few minutes if that's your only issue.
Another solution could be to make AFK blocks that the game automatically sends you to if you've been inactive for whatever time the AFK timer would use (and make that the only way to access them, and maybe have it kick you back to a regular block when you move again), that way anyone that went AFK too long could still see storms and be able to join in on UQs without being in regular blocks, which give people incorrect impressions of the number of active players there.
I think maybe 30-45 minutes (or maybe even an hour?) would be good times to set for the AFK timers? If you're not completely AFK, surely you can just move around every once in a while within that time, without feeling like you have to do it constantly.
