What the point in Vote Kick?

You can't really remove anyone from game but only real AFK player...

Someone dancing naked all the time? Burning health all the time? Not passing ball and running away? He's playing, you cant kick him!

You can kick all those people except the ball guy. Once a kick is initiated the have a certain amount of time to enter combat not perform an action. So they will have to attack someone for it to not kick them.

I have successfully kicked people form WZ's before. Granted they were actually just standing there not doing anything not dancing or sapping/healing. I suppose you could start a kick against but they could just engage in combat and have it cancelled (provided they knew that would cancel it).

I don't really see any changes you could make either. If all you needed was a majority, whether they were engaged with the enemy or not, people would probably start kicking recruits every chance they got. I guess the best way would be for the PvP queue to respect your ignore list but I have no idea how feasible that is.

I dont see a point, you enter into a regular war zone then the player who is paying his own subscription has the right to play his character how ever he wants. If you want to control the player pay his sub then you can tell him how to play in a war zone otherwise play rateds.

Ive seen a team of idiots use it to remove someone that they simply didn't like. And because he was guarding a node, he couldn't get to combat in time to prevent the kick. Disgraceful behaviour by a bunch of idiots who I reported.

Not entirely true.

Yes, they can level solo or do whatever they want solo, any way they want imo...but once they enter a WZ, they are accepting that they are doing a GROUP activity. Nobody has the right to intentionally **edit** up 7 other peoples game just because they wanna be a **edit**.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

This.

Dear guy who posted nonsense about paying subs,

That's kindergarten level rationalizing.
