Had my first AFK penalty the other day. It was in Azure Nebula Rescue Advanced. I think I got it because I didn't shoot anything the entire match. My teammates shot the Tholians while I snuck in with my tiny Bird of Prey and freed the ships.
Is this right? Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought that's how you were supposed to play that queue. It seems silly that the penalty for a mission like that would be based on damage alone.
