Hi all

 

Only recently had a go at flying GAA and was subjected to a rather hilarious glitch where on some maps my plane spawned back  in litlerally1-2 feet away from the side of a cliff, mountain or other immovable object...the result being an unavoidable collision and death a split second after re-spawn.

 

Has this happened to anybody else or did I just get really unlucky?

Only after a game crash, when the client crashes and the server just lets your plane (re)spawn and fly ... by the you have re-started the client and got a connection, you've flown into a mountain or shot down by enemies.

​Fair enough. In this case, it wasn't related to a client crash...just straight up spawned in flying head on into a mountain with no time or distance to pull up. I've found it tends to happen if you choose to spawn in from the central airfield on some variations of the Greenland map in the GAA's. I'm not even that mad because it's kinda hilarious...but, still.

Ahh, ok, so it does seem to be an issue with specific maps. At least it's not just me losing my mind (again). Thanks everyone :honoring:

It's happened to me in a fighter too, just like you describe. On respawn, mountain just in front of you - kaboom. It's happened on the new wintermap (Greenland?) and on one of the old tier 8 maps too (cant remember what that's called, but the one with winter.).

Indeed _se7en, it's happened other places but Greenland and the other winter maps do seem to be the Bermuda Triangle of WoWP

Happened today to me on arctic map in ha 137. First respawn was on captured airfield in centre of map, facing the snow mountain where there was no way I could turn in time. Second respawn in the same spot but this time facing north so no collision. By captured, I mean my team had control of it not the enemy.
