Having just been killed within 10 seconds of spawning in zone C by a Skorpion and two SU-130PM's, I can confirm that this issue has not been fixed like WG says it has.

Have seen it happen several times in the last 3 days. It's normal business if one team is much stronger than the other. Did you know that you can also use artillery strikes and such on enemy spawns? Also autoloaders spawn with a load-time so they are completely dead upon spawning out in the open between enemies.

 

Try putting an ISU-152 at enemy spawn point :D

And if you see them spawncamping, you can spawn to other lane/area. Why on esrth would you spawn there knowing what is going to happen? Let them kemp that spawn all they want and reinforce other lane and steamroll that. I really do not see the issue here.

Hmm yes, I've seen it happen a few times but have not been the victim of it just yet. I have witnessed at least 12 to 15 of my dear fellow 'team' players spawn camping zone C while me and 4 others tried to keep at least 10 - 12 opponents from destroying the gun turrets (yep, they had easily captured A and D and pushed on to the turrets from there). If players like awareness and the ability to use a minimap on 800 m * 800 m to 1.000 m * 1.000 m maps they certainly will not acquire those much needed skills on larger maps...

Ahh you weren't just in that game that finished a few minutes ago were you on EU2?  Though in the end peeps did re-spawn in the right areas, but it was too late.

 

More seriously I think you get in the zone when you've conquered your area and can advance to the spawn.  Sitting on the LHS hill in C, and darting across the bridge to kill spawners in between arty batteries is quite relaxing.

 

You are right of course, perhaps on the re-spawn screen it should default to the zone where the most enemy are (or further advanced say) and let you change that if you really must.

There is a subset of humanity that is sly and devious and takes pleasure in finding exploits.  Having spawned into the middle of the map only to die in six seconds to four spawn camping TD players I waited and respawned into the West sector only to die in ten seconds to two spawn camping Progettos.  It really shouldn't be that hard to fix but somehow they haven't fixed it.  They also haven't fixed the number of bots in the mode - tired of finding players at the bottom of the team sheet with 0 shots fired and 0 damage done.

Most surely not, as I was watching Ajax getting shafted by the referee against Real Madrid before and did not play any FL games after.

I had this once, but not even 10 seconds, more like 3 seconds. But I think it generally happens when your team is losing badly. Plus you can see the spawn points before to click to re-enter.

Yeah, I can also confirm. I got killed by enemy arty 2seconds after spawning as arty myself.
