Respawning at base?

    Okay, this is bugging the hell out of me. Sometimes when I am playing ONS, all of a sudden I just start respawning at the base. Yes, there are other possible locked/linked nodes that I could have respawned at. No, all of them aren't under attack when this happens.

    This happen to anyone else? It seems to have started happening on or around the time I applied the last patch. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not, but it is annoying as hell.

    Does this happen to anyone else?

    You can choose the node that you'll respawn to by clicking on the map.

    If you teleport to the base from another node, the base will then be the default place for you to repawn in too. Run to the core and teleport by touching the core; but the nuicance is that you usually spawn a fair way away from the core.

    It's happened to me quite a few times.
    I haven't found any pattern to when it happens; however, it never seems to happen if a "preferred spawn point" is manually set by right-clicking on a node.

    I know about teleporting from the core, but you're saying that if you teleport to the base then that becomes your default respawn node? How the hell do you change that? Because when I teleport somewhere else it doesn't become my default node.

    I've found if you right click a node or base, it becomes the 'Preferred' spawn point. If that node is gone, you'll be forced to spawn at the base until you select another preffered node (i think). :)

    what's wrong with manually selecting a respawn point when you're dead?

    You are right that this happened only after patch 3204. Before the patch, I can choose to have the map pop-up after death and let me select the node I want to respawn at (I can also right-click to choose a preferred respawn node).

    BUG
    After the patch, I sometimes respawn IMMEDIATELY at my core, or sometimes I see the map and even if I select an available node (yes I understand the rules of the game), I always get sent back to my core.

    However, sometimes this "bug" doesn't happen at all and it works fine like it did before the patch... strange :rolleyes:

    It happens to me too Hal, and I don't remember it happening before the patch.

    I've had it happen on Brassed and Dria. Those are the only two that come to mind. I hadn't thought about it being map related. Anyone notice a pattern?

    I first thought about it the other night when playing with HB in that onslaught map set in that dark forest...can't remember the name. Up until then, I couldn't remember that happening in the original maps.

    Don't think it's map related... it happened to me tonight on Dawn and Torlan.

    I was hoping the fix would be in this new patch. But no... it's still happening randomly. :(

    This bug has only happened to me when the sides were switched.

    I've only noticed it playing ONS-Chain-Isle when I tried to click and spawn at the very center node. But I end up spawning at the base. :hmm: Thought it was only the map...

    I've also noticed too that the red and blue bases will be swapped on occasion...

    When it happened to me, I just thought it was due to my ping, like all the other wacky ONS things that happen to me (no team colors, no turrets, map node colors not right, no names listed on team scoreboard, etc).

    I've noticed that the patch...sorry...patches (the new one too) changed my 'show map' option (esc in the game-Map-Show map) to 'Never'. This causes you to respawn at the nearest node in the game, rather than show the map when you die (if set to 'immetiately'). Haven't seen a random respawn though :con:
