Instant vehicle spawn servers.

The game has only been out for a couple of days, and we're already seeing lame "instant vehicle spawn" servers pop up. I was hoping it would take a little longer before tards would get tired of playing the game properly, but I guess not. Two things makes the situation even more aggravating than in BF3:

  • They've removed the option to filter by vehicle spawn time in the server browser
  • Official servers can have instant respawn
What the hell is the point of an "official" server rating supposed to offer "consistent" gameplay when they let server admins completely rape game balance by enabling instant vehicle spawns??

Can't you look and see what a servers vehicle spawn % is on the server info page prior to joining?
Lol instant vehicle respawn on official servers... Another gem from the dice QA team.

He probably can but who the fuck wants to vet every single server the might join?
Spec's right, I too was really looking forward to the Official servers purely on the grounds that it'd be Battlefield the way its meant to be: Losing a vehicle is a big deal, tickets aren't in the fucking thousands and admins can't dick you around in the name of 'Balance' and 'Fairness'! This seems like a sort of U-turn from DICE, after their announcement of the server types they seemed intent on curving back admin powers on Official servers and even made out that Ranked would be the most appealing so this seems to be a real piss take...

Realy? I'm sure the server documentation say that it was not possible...

Yeah Official server should not allow for that as stated by DICE (in a blog post i believe).

Currently server settings and presets used by GSPs are pretty fucked up. (though they followed the manual given by DICE).

Is it possible to affect the cooldowns of commander abilities through server settings? I have run into several games (not necessarily instant vehicle spawn servers either IIRC) where the gunship reappears instantly (<5 seconds) after it is destroyed, which is really aggregating when it takes ages to bring it down with the MAA. Or does the gunship respawn instantly, regardless of server settings? That would be infinitely retarded by DICE, but I guess they thought it was balanced since the third seat of the gunship is entirely harmless.

Things people said

And reading Youtube comments still gives me Turbo Cancer.

It really is quite frustrating when Helen Keller sets up her LMG in the only doorway in/out of an area.

What kind of question is that? Since when is cheese ever a bad idea?

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.

Only played one game as commander so far, but IIRC the gunship cooldown starts counting down the moment it is deployed, not when it is destroyed. So if it stays up for a while it will be ready to redeploy instantly after it is shot down.

That sucks. Even more because they stated official servers would always have default settings
