  • Would you want the respawn timers for vehicles changed?

    Yesterday I started a thread about a rather extreme idea to have vehicles spawn only once, the problems with that have been made clear but I did see a number of people that seemed to want the vehicles to have an increase in their spawn time. I think that message might have gotten lost by the original post so I wanted to run a poll to get a clearer picture on the topic.

    Poll is public, feel free to explain your decision below.

    Also note that all vehicles share a common spawn modifier.

    I voted for a slight increase and see how it goes.

    It can't hurt to try, if it doesn't work there's always a reset button.

      It's difficult to say. On the one hand, the quintessential battlefield experiences that make BC3 what it is couldn't possibly exist with spawn timers at 20x+ like PR, and even doubling them would slow down the action on big maps considerably, with Caspian and Firestorm slowing down to a crawl. On the other, it's frustrating to play the merry-go-round some vehicle cycles currently exhibit. I'm in favor of trying out a 1.5-1.75 increase.

      The option to have vehicles only spawn once would appeal to me if it wasn't for the prospect of spending 285+ tickets without any vehicles at all. Perhaps try out a server with 64 tickets on each team, single spawn for vehicles?

        Yeah, a small increase I think would be pretty nice.

          The suggestion for longer vehicle spawn times has been noted.

          While the discussion thread is good with lots of thoughts and opinions, I'm going to close this Poll because the popularity of a game setting does not determine whether it's tested or implemented here, nor whether it's a good change to make.

          Feel free to keep the discussion going in the other thread.
