Foxclon has posted on the Japanese forums that Square Enix is planning to release a vote to kick feature in Final Fantasy XIV. The below was translated by subligar lover extroadinare Reinheart:
To have a vote kick feature while using the Duty Finder is not hard to do technically, and we are planning to release.
However, there is a possibility of this feature being used wrongfully, therefore we are focusing to make sure these type of problems don’t occur as much as possible. For that reason, the release timing is not confirmed yet, we are looking into if we’re going to implement this in patch 2.1.
An MVP feature will make its way into the game in 2.1, allowing players to vote on a player they thought had a great attitude in Duty Finder. While this might help address behavioral issues in groups, it won’t prevent them completely and certainly won’t help those that simply AFK without warning. Will vote kicking be added to the already large list of additions for 2.1? Or will it be added later? We’ll know soon enough.
