So, no word of a lie or exaggeration...
I completed the update and the first game it put me into was already in progress - TDM Whiteout.
My first spawn into the game - just to ENTER the game - I spawned under the porch of the log cabin with a sniper on the hill by the water wheel already aiming down sights. Instant death!
I watched the kill cam, and confirmed... I literally appeared out of thin air in the centre of his view.
What a great first spawn into a game - THE VERY FIRST SPAWN as I join a game - again no exaggeration, and this is after a fix!
Before the fix, I had died the exact same way, as I spawned in the exact same spot as a friendly ran past the spawn, and the sniper on the same hill shot him, and me as I literally spawned behind the friendly player, netting the sniper a double kill.
Sorry to rant, but when are you ACTUALLY going to fix the spawns?
Here is an interesting find that might help which was common to both situations, which might help you fix your spawn issues.
In the first case, a leaf on a tree partially blocked the view of the spawn.
In the second case the friendly player partially blocked the view of the spawn.
In both cases the line of sight to the spawn was partially blocked just for a split second, obviously enough for the game to think the spawn cannot be seen, but it can.
Most bad spawns seem to happen this way.
You might need to find a way around this if spawns are really going to improve.
Hope the feedback helps.
Great idea. The new fix didn't do much in my eyes. I have been in numerous games since the update an the spawns are still horrible. In one game I was spawn killed 5 or 6 times ( lost count when I started to rage) before I backed out. When I can get more than 5 steps away from the spawn without getting killed, then I would say your making progress.
Just like in hard core mode, instead of waiting several seconds to spawn in after death, apply the wait time while spawned in the game. You can apply the code right now to one of the modes and we can try it today. I suppose with the decline of the CW and the coming of AW, ghosts is on the back burner with no allotted propane. cheaters are now almost in every lobby. I emptied my Ameli (100 rds) into one..and combating the damn lag switch is getting old. Anyone know if AW will have teams?
