Agreed Domination is not that good in general. You need custom designed maps like in the Close Quarters DLC to really make it work.

The spawning system for DOM and TDM need to be changed to be similar to BF3. There are two instances that really piss me off.

These game modes are meant to be chaotic, I understand that. However, surely something should be changed if I spawn and die to the same guy running around 5 times in the span of 30 seconds. In 30 seconds, I died to the same guy FIVE times. Twice from behind, the other three he got the jump on me in a face to face battle. This should not happen.

The second instance is spawn camping in TDM. The spawns don't switch when people invade like in BF3. They switch after some sort of timer/ticket limit. I spawned and died in 3 different places 5 times to one guy camping with an LMG. Said LMG gunner was raking in a lot of kills shooting all the people spawning in. Black screen for two seconds and I am greeted by the Kill Cam. This should not happen.

I agree with the OP. The spawns are bad right now. As a side note, when spawning in with the black screen I have found you can actually move and/or fire your weapon before the black screen disappears. Once I found that out I always side strafe or take some other evasive maneuver when spawning. it has save my life quite a few times now.

Yep, spawns in Domination and TDM are terrible. Even when playing with less than 10 people I could spawn next to the enemy and vice versa.

SQDM is basically a TDM with 4 teams in BF4 (which is a bad idea on it's own, but that's not what the thread is about) and it suffers even more. I had one instance when I figured two spawns, I just sit couple of meters in front of it and got many kills in less than half a minute. For science obviously. The game didin't gave an f that I was sitting there and looking right where they were spawning.

Hopefully they will tweak the spawns in the patch like they did in BF3. And maps on SQDM too, because they're way to small.

Thanks for the feedback people.

It's the exact same problem that was patched out of BF3 (n BF3 you could initially camp spawnpoints as well).
