Third attempt at a multiplayer game and you can't even get a spawn system to work right.. Well done, ND!

Why does ND ignore constructive threads, like this one, that could improve the game, in favor of going into really stupid ones like the nerf/buff threads?

They ignore everything that doesn't praise them.

The amount of stories I have about bad spawns in this game can go on for awhile. I'll just say the most notable one for me.

It was Bill's Town. I was killed in the library, and the respawn time was just ready when I died. So I instantly respawn near the truck on the side near the bar. I'm ready to move out and as I move towards the supply box, I see 3, not kidding, 3 enemies, crafting molotovs and other things right in front of me. Faster than he can even probably think, the guy with the molotov nails me with it, spawn killing me. This all happened in less than a minute....thanks ND :smileyindifferent:

Part of the reason why I mainly play Survivors. I spawned one time and literally took two steps before a placed bomb blew up right in front of me. I honestly think people are just figuring out the spawn points and exploiting them.

When all have fallen, rise above the ashes.

In my experience the Spawns have been totally acceptable, there was ONE time however I spawned and 10 feet in front of me was an enemy player with their back facing me and I admittedly killed them with ease.

Because they have nothing to say..

 

They couldn't fix it in U2. We had them in U3. We're having them again (albeit more rare) in TLoU. They're just here to stay. It's rare anyway, since I only had one incident in my 39 week journey where I spawned with an entire team of enemies. Since it was only once anyway, I don't care.

This spawn system is completely new. If you guys could provide detailed steps of what happened just before your bad spawn we can have our QA team reproduce them and hopefully get them fixed.

Players are leaving deployed bombs in known spawn locations - the Dam is where I see it the most, since there seems to be two primary spawn regions, although I occasionally spawn in other places  I've seen it the most on the one behind/by the flipped car on the side with the stacked pipes, and have been downed by a bomb as soon as I spawned on that map at least a few times  (note: this is not the same as leaving a bomb near the first tool crate on that side, as in that case, the player has a chance to see it and make a bad choice)
