I don't think so. This new system doesn't care if you are AFK or got disconnected. I believe it just checks if your ship moved a certain threshold. If you don't and it happens a few times, you get the pink color.

I doubt the support or anyone else from WG will rewoke this.

Were you AFK (regardless of intentioanlly or no)?

  • Yes - you are now pink for 3 games, stop whining
  • No - you wouldn't have became pink for AFKing

 

Really simple, and nothing unfair about it

 

Also that kicking out part sounds like your internet dropping

Being punished for something that is not your fault is so enjoyable. You must be a really special person if you think that is ok ....

@ItachiZero does this happen very often? If yes, always around the same hour? (f.e. allways between 16:00 and 17:00) if it's also afirmative, start monitoring your net, and also try to contact your ISP provider as could be a network overload issue. If not, then check your pc network adapter, your router, if you use Wifi, change to wire directly to the router...

Also, if you haven't reinstalled from scratch WoWs then do it to have a clean one and also do the same with the OS if you didn't do that in the last 5 years, for example.

 

I get that getting pink because a disconection that is not directly your fault is anoying, but wargaming cannot now the real reason of why you went AFK.

Actually they can, and so can anyone, at least when game disconnects before loading into match. If turrets don't turn and point forward and backwards (if both kinds of turrets), it's disconnect. If turrets turn pointing forward it's AFK. At least it used to be that way, don't know if it's still. Besides, game should be able to ping client to know if it's disconnected and not AFK.

Disconnections can happen by different reasons:

  • Net issues because of ISP. They cannot know that.
  • PC crashes or shoots down. They cannot know that.
  • Game crashes. The can know if the proper crash report is generated. Don't know if it's automatically collected or you need to send it to them and then they can revoke the pink status.
  • User closes the game.

So usually WG doesn't know why someone disconnects, the penalty sistem proceeds to apply the pink status.

But he's not punished. He's warned. Orange is punishment, not pink.

And how exactly should the game know if it is your fault or no? As I said - it's as simple as "Were you AFK? Yes? There we go"

DC'd = still not playing, just like an AFK.

 

Your ship is in battle but is not being played, that's exactly what they are looking for

I would say its unfair because it happens me once and it wasnt on purpose. and again It just did. and lastly it seems like one of the old patches was the issue. in the end. so reinstall is the only option

Irrelevant.

You were AFK = you got the warning for it.

How exactly do you expect the game to know that it wasn't "on purpose"?
