Respawn Button

Post  Suyer on Wed Jan 23, 2013 2:37 pm

I think it would be helpful to allow respawning through the esc menu to change your spawn location. As it stands right now, outside of imediately after a server restart, if you spawn near kamenka or krutoy cap, you literally have to run forever to get anyway, even to get to zombies so you can die and reset your spawn location that way.

I dont think you understand the dangers of doing something like this. It would allow people who just died at a spawn point to spawn at the same location and kill another person. This would probably go back and forth 5-6 times at least. I am pretty sure no one wants to see all of those death messages. It also would make getting loot on the coast extremly difficult, as people would alsmost ALWAYS pick Elektro, Cherno, or Balota as their spawn points. I am not saying its a horrible idea, I am just saying their will be many negative affects.

I too would like a respawn button, If you log out near a vehicle in the wilderness, and someone takes the car, you're stuck to walking. Maybe it could work off of range from towns or blood level etc to work around abuse. However, Rocket's team disabled it around July of last year. I'm pretty sure it's client-side as well so I doubt skeeter can do anything about it.

You still can use the respawn button but its a tad tricky, you gotta position you mouse slightly to the right of "respawn" and tap esc and click it before it greys out. But also, walking is a major part of the game, nobody likes it, some servers up the cars by the hundreds but even still you have to walk a good bit to find them as the players take them and crash them in to shit without a care.

Im not completely opposed to the idea, because people just dive in to zombies anyhow when they want a new spawn, but i think it would indeed cause some problems.

I would say no respawn button, for the reasons that TheOwner mentioned.
(Some communities even ban you for 24 hours if you do it.)
You died, you spawn somewhere randomly, deal with it. Slowly scavenge and get your gear back like you're supposed to do. Sometimes people forget that this isn't Arma2 Wasteland.

But maybe that's just me, I enjoy scavenging and crawling next to zombies as much as the thrill I get when I see another player, friendly or trigger happy.

as far as i know from playing the main hive on release, a lot of the talk about FPS issues and server side lag stems from player bodies.. pretty sure this is one of the main reasons they removed the respawn feature as obviously people will use it a lot and produce a lot more bodies putting a larger load on the server, which is why bodies are cleaned up often (but not preventing the lag?, i dont know)

just what ive read/heard.

Yea, there are so many negative issues related to a respawn option.

The negative far exceed the positive.

Never hesitate to post opinions, suggestions, new ideas.

Thanks for taking time to post your views. This is what I want, and need.
