Spawn Time
« on: October 26, 2008, 07:41:41 AM »

It's nice to see that there are others who hate the 5 sec spawn rule.
I think 2 secs would be much better.

The Spawns in this game are screwed no matter how long you make it.
Let's hope it is better in COD WOW. Can't wait for Zombie mode!! ;D

It is set to 5 seconds...which by the way is only 5 seconds, because if it is instantaneous, then people spawn behind you.  At least a player has 5 seconds to move somewhere else.

I agree.  I at least want a little time to try and move away.

That long a## 5 Sec. Aint Working. You still spawn right in front, or right behind and Die or get a cheap kill.

it was good when we had the longer spawn time and the big black box that obscured the screen so people wernt able to follow the player that just killed them

Since Click has posted another vote, I have locked this one. Anyway, it's pretty obvious what the results will be. Surprising, since it seemed as though more people were b***g than happy about the current spawn time. Oh well.....

whether spawn is 2, 5, or gone, you will be spawning in front of or behind someone because the way spawning is set up..you spawn by your teammates not a set point on the map...changing the time or getting rid of it will not change the fact you will be spawning in gunfire a lot...lol at least with the 5 seconds you get to rest for a bit

That was probably one of the few things about the mod your using that I didn't care for in coming to your server....spawning on teammates.  Most mods seem to have map spawn points and use them.

I am not a big run and gunner, I don't have the reflexes for it, so I tend to crouch/stealth around most maps....which is very frustrating when a teammate spawns on you and goes running off, pretty much giving your position away to the enemy.  Is that a mod option that can be changed?  It seems like most complaints I read on here relative to the 2 or 5 sec spawn time were about spawning into fire....a direct result of spawning "on" a teammate.

Good discussions.  I am glad to see your group hashes things over on a regular basis.

We have no control over the spawns, they are built into the maps and they are what they are.
I wish there was a way we could improve them, but alas, it is not to be.

Spawn logic, if you can call it that, has been a problem with CoD since the beginning.  The way IW feels about it is to get you into the action as fast as possible...that means spawning you near your team.  The only way to change that is to not play WAR (aka TDM).  The objective gametypes spawn you in a specific location, instead of where your team is located.
