Delayed spawn portals

6 posts in this topic

I'm getting pretty fed up with having 20 pissed off aliens spawn all around me out of nowhere. I can hear their spawn sound, and the moment they appear they're already shooting.

 

If I wasn't in a cruise tackler I'd be dead in half a second.

 

Can you instead have a portal appear for 5 or so seconds before the ships are spawned? The player needs warning.

20 Spawning at the same time? That seems like quite a number for one spawn.

That's why we have tacklers....for Open. Aren't you glad they don't spawn without a warning?

The ones that get me are the Op escorts that spawn in the inner sectors near the gates. Almost no warning there.

Yeah the escorts are powerful, I've died straight out of nowhere because they all fire their mortars and bubbles the instant they spawn, it's kinda cheesy

 

But as for the non-one hit killing ships, I guess I have to counter their instantly appearing ships with my instantly disappearing one, but this just alienates all the other ship classes from OS.

 

20 ships was an exaggeration, it's usually like a group of 5 to 8

Having a portal appear at the spawn location wouldn't be a bad idea. Similar to the ones seen on the Fire Support PVE map. I don't think it would be necessary for the ships that spawn near sector gates since they technically just used the gate. I also think the portals would offer better visualization of the event, especially if you are just outside of sensor range.

Random spawns would definitely keep things interesting but it could also result in some horrible luck if everything decides to spawn into a single area. Some of the missions are already a joke when trying to solo a single pack of Aliens. I don't need another 3 packs hanging out in the local area or possibly spawning there at any moment.
