Inactivity Glitch?

Last night I was playing UT, and my mate sent me a chat invite because we were going to play Pro Clubs after. I conceded a goal and took the opportunity to press middle button while he was celebrating, and accept the invite, put my headset on and stuff. Went back to the game and it says I've been booted out for inactivity?? It took me about 7 seconds, wtf? Is this a new glitch or something?

    That isn't a glitch, it has been standard for a while now.

    Sorry, no, I don't think so. I've accepted chat invites mid-game lots of times. How can you be deemed inactive after only a few seconds? I thought it was like a minute or half a minute at least?

    I think you've like 3 seconds to return once you've dashboarded or it's a forfeit. Ive done it on PS and came back after a second with the counter started and then it disappears.

    I found this out the hard way myself OP, once again the 99%+ get punished for the -1%

    But that is absolutely ridiculous. How can that be right? That's stupid. It should at least be the same length as an in-game pause. What if I'd have actually paused the game and then gone and accepted the chat invite, would it have given me longer then?
  • Its 15 seconds i believe so that means you are a bit slow haha

    About the same time as it takes the other guy to celebrate and watch the replay then. It should be 30 seconds at least.

    Happened to me a couple of times. Only way around it is to pause game, sort your invite, then carry on.

    So just to confirm, in answer to my earlier query, if you pause first you do get the whole length of the pause rather than just 15 seconds in your PS menu?

    You get the full duration of the pause. Just make sure you're back in time or Insta kick.
