I agree with you that it is part of the game and if u have another spawnpoint just spawn elsewer, which i do, but in that situation we only had our one uncapturable base, and it was littleraly like: you spawn, take to steps, see an enemy in a tank or soldier proned right infront of u, get 1 shot off and die. i mean you really couldent do anything, and when i tried to hide or run to another base i would get mown down by sum1. Personally it would make me happy if their was like 2seconds after you spawn where you invincible so you can atleast have time to pull out ur rocket and shoot it before u died.
And i do not care much for realism, aslong as the game is fun. Like dont get me wrong i like BF2, but their are many things in it that really get me going, how unfair it can be at times.
well if people played as a team .. There wouldn't be that much of an issue. Squads are very important in the game.
