    Is it just me or now and again when clicking on a point to respawn you are sent miles away from the spawn point like it's being taken

    When it isn't

    Is this some feature which I don't know about or just a bug

    Every time it happens we are under attack and it costs us the point

  2. Hard to tell, there may be enemys that are not yet spotted on the point.
    I havn't experianced this all too often to be concerned...

    What maps have you seen this on? Maggon A normaly is where this mostly happens

    maggon for sure
    but there have been others

    Does the fact that the enemy is in the point mean that you spawn somewhere else
    Or do they have to be taking it

    If a point is in the process of being capped, then defenders spawn farther away (sometimes really far away). This might be what you're experiencing.

    As a fun bonus, this means that defenders have an incentive to use transports, to guarantee close respawns when a point is under contention.

    If the enemy is close to capping the point, it will treat it as though it's contested so players don't respawn right next to the attacking force.

    ?? does this mean even when no one's started capping yet in the way of making the A-B-C icon blink

    I have had spawns which never started blinking before or after spawning

    *shrugs* I have no way of determining that with an empirical basis.

    There are a lot of factors that can go into spawn mechanics, what I listed is the only one I am actually confident about. You might be experiencing a bug, or it might be related to enemy proximity to the point. Or something else.

    Sorry I can't give a more definitive answer.

    thanks anyway
    it doesn't happen a lot but when it does it's just frustrating
    you're fighting off the enemy you die you respawn with 5 others miles away
