Hello.
This is why we need something like auto-kick system for the AFKers, they caused a lot of laggy in ARK Surrounding. They also blocked the players who exiting the Harbringer (see the gif above), so these poor players were forced to type /unstuck everytime.

It would be helpful to kick them back to the main menu if they were inactive for 10-15 minutes, I've witnessed two-three AFKers who stayed inactive for hours! :confused:

Agreed! I have seen people in many zones just standing there for hours myself. Might help with the lag issues.

10 minutes is good (you have time for bio/natural functions)

I agree, but I also expect that the server architecture (eventually) can handle loads of players. The lag tho

I say if your inactive for 45 minutes you should be kicked, think that's a good number where you have plenty of time to be gone but not to much.

I'd say somewhere between 10-20 mins would be about right. If you're logged out because you were afk, are you really missing out on anything by having to log back in when you return to the computer?
