Kicked out of hero showdown for being idle too long whilst dead!!!

Didn't think this was a thing! Dying in hero showdown and being forced to spectate then getting kicked from the game like seriously

  • Haha yeah that's to me too. A bit annoying but oh well I don't play hero showdown that much and it's only happened once

    So it's a known issue that's been around a while with no fix coming.... great

  • If you're playing with a friend you can usually load back into the match again. I've seen it happen to a buddy and to me a few times.

    That epitomizes DICE's handling of this game, in a nutshell.

    Sounds like an oversight.

    afk timers are especially generous in this game.

  • Wish it would work elsewhere...I could go and party in the bathroom and come back and I am still in a GA game.

    You found that ridiculous? Me too. But what about the dozen or more BUGs found and reported between Launch and February 2018 that are still around? Like the Disabled Block BUG, Corpse Attacking BUG, Half-Effect BUG, Hoth's Main Entrance to The World Behind Walls, Yavin's Secret Out of Bounds Room, Ragdoll BUG, Getting Stuck in Place Due to Bad Collision BUG, Vader's Fueling the Rage Star Card Resetting BUG, Infinite Jetpack BUG, and more

    No wonder the nickname Star Wars Bugfront II is so famous.

  • Just happened to me too, six months later. In addition to their "matchmaking system" being such a joke that the people coding it should probably not claim to have successfully coded a matchmaking system, apparently the game doesn't know how to tell idling from being dead in a game mode that doesn't let you respawn.

    My last extended break from BFII was due to this exact thing. Getting booted from a match because I was «idle», except I was talking in game etc. Nothing’s ***** me off quite like that. I’ll definitely stay away from Hero Showdown seeing as they haven’t fixed this. Bunch of amateurs, but according to F8rge, they’re experts at game development! *rolls on the floor laughing*
