- Dragon Ball/Z/GT and it's merchandise are awesome.
- All "abriged" parodies are hilarious.

How much time AFKed, exactly?

We get punished if we quit the game, and we get punished if we don't.

If something comes up that requires us to go somewhere before we can finish a game, what do you expect us to do?

I don't afk or quite often, almost not at all (I think, anyways), but this is still a concern to me.

I am a very pestamistic person. I see the glass half empty, even when it's full. Dont expect much from me.

Firefight Matchmaking games last 15 minutes (or 16.5 minutes max if your bonus round timer starts exactly as the game timer ends).

If you can't plan that far ahead of time as to whether you need to leave or not, then don't play a game. Also, if you actually have to go, you'll only be quitting one game, which won't get you banned.

Glad to have you back, Urk!

Maybe I will never be
All the things that I wanna be
But now is not the time to cry
Now's the time to find out why
I think you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever

Purdeh gud update dood

Glad to see you're back Urk!

Reading about that LAN reminded me of the LAN in the Halo 2 Limited Edition disc, back when we used to have LANs all the time. Those were good times.

Good to see you're back, urkles. A little disappointed that my submission was once again not featured, especially when you decided to accept a submission dated just four days ago, whilst mine was the original concept which dates back to September last year. You'd think the original author would get the recognition, no?

Regardless, there's always next week for that little star. Half term; plenty of time to work on something awesome.

Every time I play firefight, everyone else leaves and I'm left alone to finish the game, and it happens at the beginning. I'm pretty sure it's related to my terrible internet and router, but will that cause me to be banned?

Probably not. They might have left through choice due to the connection lag. Have you tried searching with the Good Connection filter?
