The AFK problem is deeply broken. The underlying issue is that Season 1 and Vindicator's PvP gear is very very good, better than anything you get in PvE until after Karazhan. And you can grind the honor for that gear solo. And in AV you don't even have to be very good to get that honor; even a decent loss in a quick BG still gets you 200 honor in 15 minutes. And if you have reasonably good teams you can easily clear 1000 honor / hour.The devs jokingly called this gear "welfare epics", but that's exactly what they are. I regularly see level 61 toons in Alterac Valley, just laying down the honor so they can be extremely well geared out the moment they ding 70. It's cheapened the PvE gear progression.The AFK problem is just a symptom of the larger problem that battleground honor is too valuable.
