    Default fast vehicle respawn :S

    OMG, how could you put fast vehicle respawn on the server?
    There are very good arguments not to set this option.
    It destroys the idea of the whole game. It takes away the ability of air vehicles to take part in to the battle and to support the troops on the ground BECAUSE they can only do so when the mobile AA is destroyed and since you are running instant respawn the mobile AA will always come back in and force the air vehicles out of the battlezone. UNLESS ofcourse one team has so much better pilots than the other that they can easily combine and destroy the AA together after it respawns so often that noone wants to use it anymore.
    I know that you are all tank-loving tits :P who simply hate when a jet comes in and disables your tank, but keep in mind that by destroying the enemy treats first (other jets and AA) a pilot has deserved to try one or two rocket assaults before he has to fight the respawned enemy jets again. And also keep in mind, how often a jet saves your ass in a tank battle when it deals more than 50 dmg in one flyby and gives you the upper hand although you might have taken the first hit. Everything (almost) impossible with fast vehicle respawn...
    And since I believe that you don't care because you all hate jets ( come on, be honest who of you has unlocked Flares already? DDD ) just be aware the Helicopter's life gets even more difficult. You can't do damage unless you have guided rockets for the pilot or the TV-Missile for really long range engaging because as soon as you enter combat area youll get shot down instantly.
    Ground vehicles aren't affected by this option because they always need time to come back to the battle area. So if you destroy a tank it won't bother you for a while.
    Therefor this option threatens the game's balance and to me enabling it shows that there is a lack of comprehension of the game.

    I'm very confident that I've convinced you

    Ah, never noticed till today..

    Although its much better getting in the air much quicker in Firestorm & whatever (with all the jets), the mobile AA's will always be a problem..

    99% of the time its faggot campers, sitting right outside your (or their) bases behind a rock, where its almost impossible to get them!

    Someone today loved the fast spawn so much, when he destroyed both our jets on the airstrip, on his return flight he destroyed another 2!

    Kinda leaning towards not liking it myself..

    Have you noticed how the same ppl alway get the jets or always sits in the the chopper. I bet not, atleast not since I put on fast vehicle respawn you havn't. Thats why I put it on im sick and tired of it, people just camping it out waiting for THEIR vehicle to re-spawn and that is particularly obvious with the jets where you always can spawn right in to the cockpit. Fast vehicle respawn gives you and others a chance to switch from maybe sitting in a tank all map to instead try there luck in a jet or the AA. Speaking of the AA how often does the gunner actually do his job, I think I see him 50% of the time right in the middle of the battle zone fighting infantry not jets/choppers. Fast vehicle respawn makes people diversify there game play and hopefully even out the battlefield.

    I'm not convinced.

    One alternative would ofcause be to do the opposite to double or tripple the time it takes for a vehicle to respawn. The focus in my opinion should be on the infantry, making the time it takes for a vehicle to respawn does that.

    Imo fast spawn is better than default, but maybe x2 the default time wud be even better. That wud also make maps like Seine Crossing and Bazzar less dependent on who has a good tank driver and who doesn't
    It's open season for MOOSE !
