    it may just be me but the automatic spawn selection is getting on my nerves....for eg if I am on a team that is rushing forward in a apc, i get out and die. the apc then dies just as I am about to respawn. so instead the new autoamatic spawn selection makes me spawn at the starting rax...is their anyway to change it to that it chooses the closest rax to where you died?

    I do agree with craig here, when I want to spawn at an apc, I want to spawn at that specific apc. Not on the other side of the map. It seems to be especially bad with that "cant spawn " bug, which i belive now just makes you spawn somewhere else.

    I'll take a neutered autospawn rather than not autospawn.

    Perhaps it should only work at the start of the round.

    Because it's so hard to press enter, click, press enter again and click again in rapid succession.

    I second Trickster's idea.

    Maybe the commander should be able to choose which barracks should be the automatic spawn (like Primary Buildings in old school C&C).

    If not then maybe just get used to hitting ENTER after every death, can't say I've actually been auto spawn selected and used it, since release.

    I don't rely on autospawn, always check my spawn location.
    Only at the exact starting of round it may be useful. So yeah, what Trickster said.
    RetroFade's idea is good aswell.

    Automatic spawn selection now only happens on the initial spawn.
