Eliminate pad camping. Put the pad inside the base, you spawn vehicle outside random


Like the AMS, which quit being such an XP farm when it lost the "Arcade Duck" tubes on the side, how about spawning vehicles in random spots around the SOI?

This would eliminate pad camping, which is, as an AAmax, one of my favorite things to do of all time, so you know it isn't for my sake, but for the game's that I'm mentioning this.

Another idea is an invisibility bubble around the vehicle area so you are well on your way before the vehicle spawn camper can get at you.

Anyway, I hope they don't use this, as I LOVE pad camping enemy pilots, because being a lover of teamwork, I love AA because it gives our guys freedom of movement on the ground. First thing the U.S. military does in an engagement is achieve air superiority. Then it is onward from there.

But, vehicles spawning randomly all over would kill pad camping deader than dead.

Getting killed by spawning a plane in the middle of a base getting attacked only happens to newbs. The people that want planes pull them from nearby bases where they've binded to. This is a moot point.

Yeah that. Nullifying an enemy's ability to produce vehicles is part of sieging a base.

I agree with the last 2 posters.

Though if there is more unique bases, maybe have different positions of the vehicle spawns.

Instead of the 2 I remember, above and underground.

Yea random spawn would be kind of lame. The vehicle pad is something you want to starve your enemy of during combat so they are unable to spawn vehicles or aircraft. Making the location random takes out that strategic option and makes it just a spamfest.

And as mentioned above, the smart players and outfits will spawn elsewhere and attack from outside of the base.

Glad to hear it. One of the joys of my life is pad camping airplanes.

Simple fix is to make vehicle bays like the Dropship centre airpad; give those waiting a cosy room.

I figure things are pretty well set and close to ready to launch at Sony. I seriously wonder what the vehicle sponzz will be like. If there will be mobile vehicle spawn points.
