The respawn screen is a pain in the backside:
  • It looks like it's interactive during the post-death "movie" even though it isn't, so you have to hit S key to interact with it.
  • You have to toggle off your alt-hud to interact with the respawn menu.
  • Your chosen respawn location (airfield) will arbitrarily / randomly toggle off to default spawn for no apparent reason - even though that spawn point is still under your team's control and can be reselected if you catch the mistake in time.
  • The feed from the game playing in the background is just annoying and distracting.

This is beside all of the bugs - like the Battle! button to commence a sortie being unresponsive and possibly causing glitches if it's hammered.

Whole thing needs to be streamlined:  The currently active spawn point shouldn't change unless it is currently unavailable, or I've specifically left-clicked an alternative.
Death-cam should be locked to a follow-cam of the plane that killed you, or better yet - dropped altogether.
The background video feed of the match should be dropped in favour of a static "skycam" view of friendly CPs you can rotate through to see what's going on at those key locations.
The map shouldn't show alt-hud info (that's what the tab-map is for).

It also feels like the game prioritizes useless visual(rolling numbers) and sound effects over the input from the user.

The minimap size should be changeable and be 2 times bigger at max.

I believe the response location bug - and it is a bug - occurs when a plane dies in the location you’ve selected.  It seems as if the game is treating this as a loss of the sector and reverts you to the original spawn point.  Very irritating.

The problem with respawn changing to default point when airfield is chosen is known and the team is investigating it.

 

We are really thankful for your feedback bit there're no plans to adjust deathcam settings in the near future.

Apparently I got this wrong.  It happens when a sector changes hands.  It’s still an irritating bug though.

And one more. After you are killed, if you choose to watch teammate's playstyle (default T). Then you respawn and you can't see yourself on the main map (default hold Tab), but you see the teammate's marker as yours (white). Your plane is invisible in the main map, but OK in the minimap.
