It appears the conditions for an AFK kick tend to vary between time and game mode. Sometimes it kicks you for not dealing damage, sometimes for sitting in one spot despite dealing damage (Bastion), and other times it kicks you for absolutely no reason. Could we get a bit of clarity about this, and possibly a fix for the illogical afk kicks in the near future?
Extra posts and experiences regarding the matter:
Posted by SlowwokeTo go with your experience, yesterday a friend of mine almost got afk kicked for not damaging AI in Junkenstein's revenge.
Then there must be a bug, because in these games I literally run around the map, use abilities, land body shots on a Widowmaker, and get kicked 5 seconds later.
There's also been a deathmatch game where I've gotten kicked on bastion because I didn't inflict damage for a certain number of time, yet I was active in turret form, moving my camera around and saying voice lines.
With Bastion, I've gotten the afk warning, despite spraying bullets at enemies and landing a few shots.
