Troopers "unavailable" to spawn on

Has anyone else noticed a massive increase in seeing a normal trooper being "unavailable" to spawn on? As though they are aerial troopers? It's not the normal sign it gives when an assault trooper is in combat for example. It's just normal troopers that aren't in combat but yet can't be spawned on.

  • Yeah have thought this for a while, why add a spawn system that doesn't allow you to spawn on teammates fml they will probably say working as intended

    Yes spawns are messed up. I get the unavailable now all the time.
  • In my case I see my teammate spawn in and he is initially unavailable, then if he is in combat it will say so instead of unavailable. Once he gets out of combat he will then be available to spawn on. It shouldn't be that way but for some reason that's how it's been since the update.

  • Yes and it’s an annoyance. I noticed it happened a lot with the Specialist class before the update now it happens with every class after the update.

    It appeared when an ability was being used like the Specialist using the binoculars.

    It happens with specialist whenever they use their binoculars. Not sure why, but that's what happens with them.

    Or they'll tell us they're aware and do nothing about it for 2 years.

    This is where the ban begins

    Nothing about that was against the rules.

    Or inaccurate. Another bug that will linger unattended like the friendly vehicles showing as enemies on the radar bug.

    I think it's every gunshot that registers on the minimap isn't it?
  • Great during a fast spawn event.

    Who knows. 17 agrees on the OP and not one comment from dice. As usual. But hey, I've only ever had 1 reply from them for something serious. So maybe it's just a personal thing with me haha.
  • Same issue here. Always says spawns are unavailable, despite no one is in combat. (PC Version)
  • What I noticed was a teammate spawned and until he entered combat and got out the unavailable to spawn went away.

    Rule 39: Never say no to Bacta

    When you have been playing since launch Cool kid 8)

    I want to make a squad of 4 Commandos and then scream "FORM UP DELTA SQUAD"

    We need Delta Squad Commando skins.
  • I’ve made a thread on this a few months ago. More often than squadmates my friend who’s in a party with me is most of the times unavailable.
    What I noticed was a teammate spawned and until he entered combat and got out the unavailable to spawn went away.

    My friend too becomes available somehow when he starts shooting at someone without being shot at.
    PS4.

  • +100, yes, happens frequently since the last update
  • Default spawn should be on the left side.

  • Default spawn should be on the left side.

    Thanks for the input.

    My pleasure. That one was free.

    Actually Buck is correct. Do you read right to left? At least default is the first option highlighted so I’ll give them that but otherwise spawning has been a problem in this game.

    Same on PS4 with every class my Squad has.

    I usually get a squad with a bunch of noobs...i mean really...they are never in a fight, just running nowhere.

    This game has become [removed]. If have 3 mates in my squad (there are sometimes just 1 or 2 for 10 Minutes or something) i just can spawn on 1 mate...its annoying... They are not out of the range, have no enemy in their near, have no vehicles, no heros, no jetpack troopers or something.

    And at the end i want to say: the team balancing is crap.

    It's quite vexing.
  • Still happening.
    Devs? ?
    Hello??
  • Bump!
  • To my knowledge?

    Yeah, still happening...
  • Still happening. Every game. Can’t spawn on teammate. Then you gotta wait for the cool down timer just to start miles away.
  • It is quiet annoying to have all 3 people in your spawn selection "unavailable" ...
  • Maybe this topic will be noticed EVENTUALLY by devs and we'll get a response....
  • Bump!
  • Bump!
  • @F8RGE Got anything useful to add about something people care about? Oh hold on, another thread about skins need attending to!
  • Just default spawn and run across the whole damn board. I thought it was just me never being able to spawn on teammates.

    Seconded

  • It's too late for him. I've already commented on the thread. He never replied whenever I comment on anything.
