AFK characters? I don't get it.

    When I get in lobby 1, I see the same characters there a lot. But I have the feeling they are AFK.
    So my question is... is there some sort of advantage to keeping your character logged into the lobby even though you aren't playing? I'm not bashing it, I'm just curious.

    (The recent post about Brez made me think more about this.)

    The advantage is your already in-game when you decide to play PSO instead of having to log back on? :wacko:

    Lately I've been sitting in there just listening to the lobby music while I work, with the chatlog open being a creeper c:

    That was quite the well-forged explanation for something so simple.

    Whenever lobby 1 is swamped with campers....mew starts chomping at the bit wanting to simply expel EVERYONE and let the ppl who WANT to play relog on as normal....and the AFK campers being AF'k'nK will be none the wiser and will be a win/win...mew should prolly try it out soon? >=3

    I'm gone now, but question is...
    How long do I have to stay gone to the point where I can complain and fit in with everyone?
    I'd hate to think I veto'ed myself out from having a good time with my ephinea friends :)

    If I ever go afk it's because I forgot I had PSO open and got carried away browsing the internet lol.

    So THAT'S why I ended up d/c'ing twice when I played a couple days ago, despite everything running fine and with low ping. And why other people were saying they were kicked out as well after I logged back in.
