Here's some rules based on basic logic:
1.) Don't go AFK in game.
1.a) If you go AFK and expect other people to level you up, you will die.
2) Urgent AFKs
2.a) If you need to afk while solo, press ESC to pause your game. If you need to run to the bathroom or help out your family, this is the easiest solution.
2.b) If you're in a multiplayer game, tell your party you need to GTFO. Town portal and leave the game immediately.
2.c) If you think you're going to be gone for a while. town portal and leave the game.
Yep, its so simple for us to goto town while we are in the middle of playing the game. Yet if you need to go afk you have enough time to teleport to town and type "brb","afk", ect. instead of just exiting the game or even alt + f4. take responsibility for yourself and exit the game and stop complaining on the forums how everyone shouldnt be pissed off about you going afk in their games. If you need to afk for more then say ... 5 mins (cause lets be honest. it will take more then 5 mins to lure monsters into town and kill you) just leave the game yourself and stop blaming others for being a$$holes and killing you when you were being the a$$hole first by sitting in town afk for a ridiculous amount of time stealing quest exp and making the mobs harder for everyone in that game.
I think these are different topics all together. You'er talking about what to do if someone AFKs in your game, and what I was initially expressing in the thread is how to AFK if you're the one that needs to go AFK.
