Town Huggers

General Discussion
Blizzard needs to do something about people joining a game and just staying in town while others do the killing. They recieve experience while doing nothing and making it harder for others to do anything
Really? im only remember they could only receive quest completion exp/gold, they need within the same map to get exp/gold/items.

Besides, most good players have their damage better than normal players thus killing quite efficient eventhough without the afk support, and more exp for the team on spot.
Yeah, pretty certain you get no exp unless you're in the same zone as where the kills are taking place. I know that you definitely get no loot.

As far as I can tell there is zero benefit from standing in town doing nothing.
If ur in town and stay there you will vomplete quests... Once I when afk by mistake starting act 4 and when i log back in i was in hell difficulty... It had complete nightmare act 4 for me...
Town Huggers...are those like giant Face Huggers?

Apparently you can still gain Paragon xp.

Then just go to town, afk while getting a cup of coffee and a smoke.

Don't be a douche. Blizzard have mentioned several times that they want to get people out into co-op.

why/how does it not work anymore? since when, the last update? maybe too many hardcore afk'ers cried about it?

it takes 2 people to kick someone, then leave, and again then leave.
vouch!!! when i used to play public games, 99.9% of the time i join a game theres always 1 afker, and sometimes when i try to "vote kick" the option is grey'd out?!? whattt!!!
Votekick doesn't even work 90% of the time. Not because people don't vote to kick. It simply... doesn't do anything. You click it and nothing.

No, Blizzard made it because people were luring mobs into town, hiding in the inn and hosting public hardcore games to instakill people as soon as they joined.

Are you sure? From what I've seen, it takes 3. Which is the problem.
it takes all the members in the party except the player to be kicked.
