Problem with Deserter Detection (kicking people out of a warzone)

Now, I just want to say, I am all for the *concept* of deserter detection. Kicking people out who intended to leave their character and gain free XP for the warzone is fine, except where things like THIS happen.


This is all within the last two nights:


1) Playing voidstar, after I revived, the stupid Splash Screen appeared and wouldn't disappear so I could find my way out of the safezone, and didn't go away until I was already kicked out and the Imperial Fleet was half way loaded. No exaggeration.

2) Playing Alderaan, I have been kicked out three times, twice because the Speeder wouldn't respond to my commands and take me down to the warzone, and once because it wasn't there at all.

3) Playing Huttball, I have been kicked out several times because the ray-shield at the door to the safezone never went down after I revived, and a few times because after I entered an in-progress match, I couldn't get down the hall fast enough because the deserter detection starts before your loading screen goes away.

Dont worry , i guess even BW would not implement it before they fix the bug feast that it is their wz right now , cause im pretty sure they will manage to bug this when they implement it.
The Lord said: "QQ enough and thou shall receive it."
The followers said: "I shall QQ my lord, i shall QQ."
And since then , not a single day passed without the QQs being heard.

No, I'm not talking about a hypothetical deserter debuff. I'm talking about the existing "deserter detection", which kicks you out if you stay in the safe zone.

I have some of the same problems.

Alderaan- by far my favorite warzone, currently i have a 50% chance to not even have the speeder's spawn if I die. I end up running around the ship waiting to get kicked out. Sometimes they spawn just as i'm getting kicked out of the warzone. And if they do spawn, there's a 50% chance that i will just stand there looking at the speeder... and then get kicked out.

Any warzone already in progress- This is just stupid. For some reason, Bioware figured it would be a good idea to start the deserter detection debuff when you click to enter the battleground. If you have a low to mid end computer, your load screen will eat up most of the debuff, and you will probably get kicked out. Sometimes, i get lucky and i can get out of the safezone with a second or 2 left on the debuff. If the shield happens to drop at the right time to let me out. The most annoying part is when you have 10 seconds on the debuff, and a brand new shield that locks you in.


i have written multiple bug reports on this. The most annoying is Alderaan, because i normally do fairly well. Sometimes, we'll be winning handily, i'll die near the end of the match, and never get anything. I get kicked out instead. When i talked to a CSR about it, he said "well that's new" which is BS, cause there are posts on the forum about this problem.

Happens way too frequently.

Which is "at all".

I've played one Republic character to valor rank 46 and one Imperial character to valor rank 23, so I've seen my fair share of Warzones. 100 matches at least and I have never seen this bug once. My friends that also play a lot of PvP have not mentioned it either.

I'm not calling you a liar, but perhaps you are exaggerating quite a bit? Of course Bioware needs to fix this if it can happen at all, but I remain skeptical.

i initially found that others were having this problem by googling it. Found a post on the forums. Just because you, or people you know, haven't seen this bug, doesn't mean it's not there. It affects more than myself, and I know I'm tired of it happening.

I play MMO's to pvp. If there is no pvp, i will not play the game. I love the pvp on this game. Class Imbalance, i can deal with. FOTM classes will always be there. But to spend almost an entire warzone doing well, contributing to your team winning, and then getting booted because of this problem is beyond frustrating.

He's not. I have the same bug, but I've always assumed it's because my computer is not up to snuff compared to the standard in PC gaming, at least when the Alderaan Speeders are concerned.

Okay, I stand corrected then. Well, this surely needs to get to the attention of Bioware.

Has never happened to me, although..

I was not paying attention and the door in voidstar closed to quickly. I still maed the second exit.

Few in my guild with low end machines or bad ISP's have troubles like your describing.

Deserter buff is needed badly, and although you may not be part of that problem, the amount I LD/disconnect in matches is prolly... 1 in 50.

Check ur drivers, defrag, free up your home netwerk, and call ur isp about good service.
