I had the same issue yesterday.

Same here

Same here. Fishing. Playing the game as intended. Kicked while reeling in a fish with no warning, just bam! In my head that fish was a legendary.

I was kicked in Windsward as well for afk while actively walking around town and crafting and smelting items.
