Voting would never work - it's a nightmare in other multiplayer games i've played. Either it's impossible to pass a vote because not enough people vote (ie. it requires 80% and not enough people understand or choose to vote), or if it's easier to pass a vote it's used to grief other players.I think the simplest solution would be to force you to leave the cave. You gain no honor until you leave the cave, maybe with a 1 minute debuff so people respawning from genuine fighting don't miss out on honor as they exit. The elites at the entrance are there to prevent spawn camping, so you can still use the cave for protection if you need, but anyone interested in honor will find a way out.This solution lets the players sort out the afkers themselves. Without the safety of the cave the afkers will die one way or the other. Once regular hiding places are established it will be worth taking a circuit of them to get free honor killing afkers. Or if they hide in the main base they'll either be forced to play defense at some point, or will be killed afk and sent back to the cave. It may only ahve full impact nearer the end of a match, but the afker will either earn no honor or will be forced to fight - once he's been sent to the cave and your base is crawling with the enemy, there's nowhere else to hide. Plus i'm sure we'd see more cave-watching looking for free kills if the afker decides to stand outside or go to a nearby hiding spot.The only spot i can imagine being relatively safe would be in the primalist/druids cave since they can occassionally have quite strong elites untouched through an entire match. But throw a group of free kills in there and clearing that cave may become part of the regular strategy...
