AFK ideas

Obviously better AFK detection and bans should be implemented but how to go about it? Here are a few ideas.

How about dumping all AFKers on the server (not just the game) into a room of shame and at the end of the round the winner gets to play a bonus game of "Wipe them out. All of them!" as Palatine.

Alternatively, rather than give credits to AFKers do the exact opposite and start deleting credits. When the credits are gone start on the crafting parts and after that start deleting their star cards. If they lose the lot then delete their accounts.

Don't give credits for killing AFKers as I have seen some players hang around waiting for them to spawn for an easy kill.

If an AFKer is present in more than 2 matches then bar them from playing for 1 hour. The next time make it 1 day, then a week then a permanent ban.

For cheats, don't ban them but force them to play only matches against other cheats - and fill their games with the AFKers ;)

It's not the winning but the taking part.... and winning

    Hard code a vote kick option is likely the easiest and then likely look at a negative credit or progression wipe after so many kicks per account.
    Ea would have to active monitor multiple regions and console so I'm not sure its viable
