Very Fast Inactivity Timeout


Recommended Posts

I remember the inactivity (AFK) threshold used to be something like 20 minutes. Lately, it has been more like 2 minutes. And it's not a random thing, it happens everytime I switch from NA to Windows (Alt-Tab). I end up back at the NA startup screen. It doesn't seem to matter what I do in Windows - run an app, open a browser. I am playing NA in full screen mode.

 

Has the timeout interval changed?

A timeout less than 20 minutes would be very disappointing.  I doubt that it is by design.  I remember Admin saying that playing AFK is acceptable now. 

The timeout was implemented when there were too many players for the three servers.  When a server was full, new players had to wait to join until the population dropped below 2,000.   We don't need a timeout at all anymore, unless the population increases.

I agree but that doesn't remove the fact that it is consistently happening to me. In fact I am logged in right now and by the time i get back there is a good chance I will be logged off.

Can't even check the forums without being disconnected.

Captain,

The afk kick timer was not changed for a very long time. Most likely you are experiencing temporary connection issues that you mix up with the afk kick
