As we know many times happends that your teammates are in base AFK and enemy players push and kill then many times. That is very bad if you play Slaughter, TDM game mode because every death is one ticket less for whole team. Thing what VG should do is to disable auto respawn option. That way if players is killed once and he is AFK game will not respawn him again so he will not be meat for enemies and game breaker for own team. I don't see problem that you need to confirm before every respawn, it's even better because give you more time to choose profile.

The option could be abused by active players. Respawning only when you have enemies close so you can kill one while being spawn protected is one example. Or choosing not to respawn when you don't have many tickets left...

There already is an option not to auto respawn, isn't there?

AFK detection should come in handy. If someone is detected, then autorespawn should be disabled for him.

Simple solution. If someone is afk for 2 minutes (doesn't move, shoot or similar), he gets kicked from the game. This way people can't farm the afk players. This would prevent people on teams going 0-27 getting farmed.

There is no reliable "AFK detection". Proof: the current "penalty" system.

Active players are getting penalties all the time because they didn't manage to harvest enough points when facing unbalanced enemy team (eg. team A: elo 1000, 2000, 2000, 2000 vs team B: elo 1000, 1000, 1000, 4000 where ELO4000 guy killsprees everyone).

Shooting or walking detection doesn' work because "AFK macros".

If someone is AFK, he gets penalty up to 15,000 silver AND several minutes BAN from starting a match. Enough IMO.
