Petra is too big


#73

There is only 3 ways i can see this map getting fixed, either…

  • close off some of the walls and different levels of land and make them open dynamically.
  • increase the allowed player amount between 10-12.
  • take it off the game temporarily so they can redesign and release on PTR

what do y’all think?


#74

Getting afk warning constantly because you just can’t find anyone. Was just winning one by 5 kills and still I’m “afk”


#75

Even more annoying, the map is massive but the spawns are so poorly placed that they can easily be camped, particularly by a Widow.


#76

I’ve fpund this too but it doesn’t help that I really don’t know my way around the map. Maybe when it’s been out a while and people learn the dead spots and the really good fighting areas it will change.


#77

If you’re getting AFK warnings in Petra, which is actually quite small, then you’re not gravitating towards the center or the jump pads.

Petra isn’t that much larger than Chateau.

Hey folks, we appreciate the feedback on AFK timings for Petra. We’ve been looking into this and are planning an adjustment to the timing in an upcoming patch or hotfix. I don’t have an ETA, but I wanted to let you know that we’re on it.

Cheers


I am Just curious

AFK Timer Changes

As always, thanks for the communication, Bill.


#80

cool


#81

Very Interesting news as always.


#82

good to hear :smiley:

would this be a global change or do AFK timers already differ per map?


#83

If Petra is the size it is, the player limit should be bumped up to 12


#84

Really glad to hear. At least, make it so the inactivity timer doesn’t kick in. I really couldn’t find anyone


#85

Extended time for AFK to kick in is all I ask, specially just this map. I’ve played a few games thus far and received zilch XP because of the AFK warning. Good to hear Blizz is on it.


#86

Why not remove the AFK kick unless someone literally presses no buttons at all? If a player is pressing buttons, they’re playing the game and should not be kicked.


#87

Not sure if you were saying this as a joke, but if your cat does this it could mean that your cat is sick and needs antibiotics. Might want to check the litter box to see if there are any issues and monitor him/her, if the behavior continues it might be worth seeing the vet. If it’s a boy cat and there are other cats roaming in the area, though, it could be stress-related territorial marking. Cats are usually very particular about their toilet habits so if yours is acting up in a strange way, it could mean something bad is happening for them so it’s always best to be vigilant and keep a close eye on them.

we already visited the vet, he was indeed, ill.

as always?

Oh geez I hope your kitty will be okay, best of wishes.


#91

Afk warning ?? You have to be kidding me.

Thank you Mr. Bill, while you’re tweaking those numbers do you think there is a chance we could get an option to remove the inactivity timer in custom games? At the very least turn it off for private games
