There seems to be an almost exact 1|1 match between times I've spawned in an Airfield and times I have to pull an immediate 180 after spawning because I spawned facing the opposite direction than where I want to go.

Please WG rotate the Airfield spawns!

They seem somewhat random, to me.  I am assuming you are talking about the direction you are pointing?

Yes the direction you face when you respawn at an Airfield.

It may or not be random, however its almost but not quite entirely unlike tea always the wrong direction.

Have you tried rotating the mini-map before you respawn ?

to clean up all that messy spawn and respawn...

btw,

did you ever hear the story:

.

Spawn and Respawn were walking across a bridge...

Spawn fell off,

who was left?

:popcorn:


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Then why are you worried about spawning direction

at an airfield that will be replaced by a super galactic highway

Hmm, maybe thats my problem?

You Northern Hemisphere ppl actually find you spawn at airfields facing in the direction you want to go most of the time?

 If in doubt, follow the Canadian Geese, they do not lead you astray.  Unless they do, and then you are stuck in a pond next to a Hampton Inn in Indiana for the duration.  

 

Silly geese.  But they have better minds than those who created the WOWP respawn.

some higher tier maps do have us all facing a lower value cap, almost completely off-axis

 

could this be what you're talking about?

I have the advantage of being brain dead and stroked out so I do not even notice that kind of thing. :amazed:
