Blizzard Lowers the Boom on AFKers

Blizzard Lowers the Boom on AFKers - MMORPG.com

Blizzard has posted a brief note to let Heroes of the Storm players know that a new round of account suspensions has been issued specifically targeting AFKers and other "non-participants". Players who have repeatedly and purposely died throughout cooperative matches have also been suspended. According to devs, "these actions were targeted at players whose in-game performance data, combined with high report volume, clearly shows a consistent lack of contribution".

Developers feel that this type of behavior ruins the experience of others and "undermines the spirit of competition that's essential" to the game.
