I've been in several parties where all three of us go to kick a player (via right-clicking on the player's tile in the upper left corner) and nothing happens. We were only able to kick an idling player once when I stood next to him, selected "Kick", and received a modal window to insert a reason. The rest of the party received the vote and he was kicked.

What are the conditions for actually booting a player? Do you have to stand near him? Does there need to be a period of time in-between the first vote and the actual vote? Is it a majority vote or a consensus vote, and how does it differ between four-, three-, and two-person parties?

The general consensus is that:

  • You have to be close to the player
  • You have to wait for a timer after the player joins the game
  • And I think that you cannot kick a game creator

Last night I found myself wanting to kick a player afking in town for 15 minutes since he joined. I tried to do it right before engaging some boss fight but nothing happened. But after porting to town it worked - I was presented a screen to provide a reason for a kick, and I assume the other guy got kick-voting dialog, since the player got successfully kicked.

In short: you have to be close to a player being kicked for it to work.

Vote kicking is a little glitchy right now. I think you have to be able to "see" the player to be able to kick them, much like inspecting their equipment and skills.

I'm pretty sure there's an internal game timer for when you join. It's always the people that join a game and sit in town that I can't ban, after a while (15-20 mins) I've been able to, although at that time I wasn't the one initiating the kick.
