Game needs to remember your spawn location choice.
I hate having to go through menus every time I spawn. You shouldnt have to go to the spawn menu again, unless your team loses the spawn location, or you wish to change it. And it shouldnt be defaulting back to spawn on squad leader, whos squad you didnt even join. Especially every time you spawn.

Between this and the broken cover system, these are the main reasons I rarely play this. And its the same reason a number of my friends dont play very often, or ever. Gets too frustrating.

This game would be way more popular if they would lose just some of the lame stuff that gets people killed stupidly. If you were to poll all the people who have tried RO and ask what they dont like, I bet you would get the same couple answers from all of them. Why the devs dont address that, I dont know.

Hopefully they consider some of these things. Otherwise this will just be another game I own but almost never play, and a company I no longer buy from... I dont do games that frustrate me with broken game mechanics. And I dont do companies that wont fix them.

Actually, whenever you choose a class it automatically puts you in a squad. The squad selection screen is just an alternative method for choosing a class for you to specifically choose which squad you join.

Yeah, it shouldnt be doing anything like that. If I wanted in a squad, I would choose it. And it shouldnt be trying to force me into one, even after ive deliberately chosen to not join one. Every time I spawn the game annoys me. And generally ive had enough within a match or two.

If they want people to play these games, they should stop giving us reasons to not want to play..

The squad system is important and required. It's impossible to join the game without being put into a squad unless you are marksman or commander.
Zombo Aug 19, 2013 @ 5:47pm 
And thats why I likely wont play much. And it not important to me. I could care less about squads.

Oh well, thats probably why theres only a handful of servers with people playing...

Yeah. It's obviously because people are being forced into squads. /sarcasm

I don't see how being put into a squad is a bad thing at all.
Zombo Aug 19, 2013 @ 5:53pm 
No, it because they have all these annoying things that drive players away. Like making you rechoose your spawn location every time, over and over and over , every time you spawn. Often missing the spawn timer, while you fumble with lame menus. And if you forget to reselect the spawn you want, it auto re-assigns you to some useless squadleader on the otherside of the map or something. Between that and the broken cover system that they still havent fixed, its a wonder anyone plays this at all...

Not everyone wants to play in a squad, I hate it.

edit: this game could be huge if they would lighten up on their idea of 'realism' and 'teamwork' a little.

Auto-select spawn is all I ever use. Squad leaders are usually closer to the action than the default spawns. If he's dead, then the game chooses one of the other spawns available. Seems to work just fine to me.

As for the cover system, yes it sucks. I just don't use it and it's not detrimental to the gameplay at all.
Zombo Aug 19, 2013 @ 5:59pm 
Thats your opinion, for me its game ruining. And im not alone in that sentiment. trust me.

I want to slect a spawn once, and never have to select it again. Unless I choose to change it. Or the spawn is captured. Otherwise I dont want to see a menu, period. And I certainly dont want to be fumbling through a menu system why trying to beat a spawn timer. Auto spawn is the worst, you have no idea where you will spawn..

Oh, you mean you want the game to automatically spawn you every time the next wave happens? I can see that being more problematic than helpful especially for those that go afk and waste a reinforcement. Even Battlefield 3 makes you click deploy every time you want to respawn.

no no, I dont mind having to hit ready. Its the having it not rememeber my last spawn location choice, and spawn me there only. It defaults back to squad leader always.

I dont want to have to rechoose the spawn I want every single time I spawn, Its lame as hell. If I pick spawn 1, it should spawn me there for the rest of the game unless I change it.

Ok, I actually understand that and can agree. It has actually been suggested before but most people were fine with the introduction of auto-select and haven't complained since.
Zombo Aug 19, 2013 @ 6:08pm 
Its why I dont play. I barely make it through a match before ive had enough. And im not the only person who thinks the spawn system sucks for that reason.

The other big popularity killer is the broken cover system. That should have been fixed long ago.

People stopped playing, not just complaining....

The spawn problems in this game are horrendous. I'm getting 20 to 25 second spawns in 2 out of 3 spawns now. With five minutes left in a round, these spawn times represent a significant percentage of "gameplay" time.

It's easy to see why we're losing so many new players. Few gamers are looking to spend most of their time in-game staring at a spawn countdown timer.

Having to select your spawn point and then click 'ready' every single time is annoying, frustrating and stupid, I agree.

Spawning on squad leader by default is also broken imho.

I don't mind the idea of spawning on squad leader, but what happens with the system is you DON'T spawn right on the SL, you spawn about 10-15 feet away, usually right out in the open and ur mowed down immediately while the SL is oblivious to the fact everyone he spawns is getting massacred. Very stupid design, just horrendously bad. Bad SL spawn points counts for a huge number of casualties/tickets.

Not having a server que is also a huge oversight. Having to camp a full server mashing the join button, loading the map just to get there and then be tossed back to browser menu cuz' server is full is just frustrating and stupid.

I also have had enough of the bad game designs in RO2/RS, hence the reason I've basically stopped playing this game as of late, I have other games that are quite frankly less hassle and more fun.

I just press space to automatically choose the auto-select spawn immediately which they implemented in the last patch.
