you can kick them from the match if they stay dead. Need 4 votes, but if they are not respawning they will go Non contributing.

You can vote kick by hitting the M key, which brings up the screen when your respawning. Look for a yellow circle with a diagonal slash through it. If anyone has this they are non contributing. Left Mouse click on that symbol and it will put a red dot there for you. You have made a Vote to kick. If you can get 4 people to vote kick them, they get removed from the match.

Ignore doesn’t keep people from being on your team in pvp, ground or GSF. It only keeps them from being matched with you for group finder for flashpoints and ops. I mean I would still do it, but it won’t stop them from being on your GSF team.

You can vote kick any time you are at the map screen, which can be while you are waiting to respawn or by hitting M during the match. I was recently reminded of that. Best to come to a complete stop with the X key before hitting M because your ship will continue to fly in the direction you were last pointing.

The trouble is, if someone does recommend in ops chat to vote kick someone, that runs the risk of alerting the AFKer to the process and then they will respawn or shoot at something, automatically canceling the vote.

It’s not an ideal system. I wish that people would just act maturely, but I’m not sure an AI can enforce behavior. It’s more a combination of human observation and intuition during the match and review of the scoreboard after the match. AI probably can’t reliably distinguish between a struggling new pilot and a griefer/self-destructor/AFKer/exploiter/etc.
Thank you for reading!

If Bioware moved to a system where medals awarded = daily/weekly points then we wouldn't have this issue. People would be trying to earn medals instead of trying to end games as soon as possible or in unranked PvP just going AFK in a safe area during a match.

That system already exists with Galactic Season so hopefully it could be used to complete the daily/weekly PvP missions.

I agree. In unranked PvP and in GSF the devs need to move away from the win/loss reward track and actually give the rewards to people playing and actively trying. In PvP, get 8 medals could be the daily with the equivalent to current one win and 32 medals for the weekly. In GSF could implement something similar but I'm not sure what the number of medals would be because it is harder to get medals in GSF compared to PvP.
May the Force be with you. Long live The Old Republic.

The problem with that system is that you’d end up with more people just sitting on defense sats in Domination matches soaking up defense medals. Maybe they’ll shoot at some folks to make up the difference in medals, but I guarantee you’ll see a drop in participation. People would probably just leave death matches or keep suiciding to get it over with so they can go back to Domination matches.

rather have someone being bait delaying the taking of a satellite for 2-3 seconds than someone who never spawns or suicides 26 times in one game.

10 years of GSF and 10 years of ppl intentionally self-destructing in GSF matches.
Before they just trolled other team-mates being unable to shoot smth themselves and offended by the whole world.
Now it's conquest points farmers who just go afk with 0 dmg or keeping self-destructing themselves because they are too bad to play fair.
I always report such ppl but have no idea if BW really reacts on those tickets.
IMHO GSF should be banned for them for a week at first ticket or even forever if they keep doing it again.
