Can anyone explain to me the purpose to the squall line? I've been playing long enough to remember when we had no respawns, and maybe the squall line has to do with that old mechanic. Right now it is just a nuisance, with 5 minutes left to a match when the line hits is way to much time left in the battle, especially when it's a close fight.

the squall line marks the end of respawns.  That is the purpose.

It also marks a change in bot behavior, where they switch from being capture-focused to being air-to-air focused.

Early in 2.0 it also served to allow a team behind on capture points to come from behind and take the match by sweeping the skies clean.  While still possible, I don't see it nearly as often as I used to.

I've always wished for an actual stormfront line moving across the map, hiding the planes on the other side


and a little bit dangerous to fly through...   Bombers could fly over it easily, maybe heavies


It could be really tacky-looking, I wouldn't care
