I was watching levelcap playing Bf1 on his channel I he spawned in an airplane. The plane didn't take off and instead he was placed in the drivers seat!!

Straw poll:

I thought that you might start off at an airbase article-2187558-148203D5000005DC-152_634x423.jpg
and then I was hoping that maybe you emerge through the clouds or something. An animation of you taking off at base and flying through the clouds coming through the other side..RTR34RN6.jpg


This would eliminate spawn killing or planes being stolen, and it would add the immersion for the people that want that. This would satisfy both parties.

DICE PLEASE FIX!!
Breaks the immersion

    Completely agree. Running up to a heli/jet in BF2,3 (maybe 4),climbing in and taking off was great. This needs to be sorted, this ISN'T Battlefront!!

    do you want to watch a cutscene every time you spawn in a plane?
    it would get boring real fast.

    No, it would just be great to take off! and fly a short distance over the front to the battlefield. I'm not bothered about a cutscene

    You see yourself getting into a tank, why not a plane?, other bf's have let you take off from the ground.

    Why are you getting so worked up over nothing? Maybe it just depends on the map?

    Even in BF4 and BF3 there were maps where when you spawned in a jet it was already in the air (e.g Dawn Breaker or Bandar Desert).

    That didn't mean that there weren't other maps where you could take off from a landing strip (e.g Caspian Border)

    I'm sure it will depend on the map. At least wait till we know more.

    Exactly. Though thinking about it, the map that was played last night looks to be very close to the Britsh front and far west of No-Man's-Land. So i guess watching the German side spawn in the air, coming from the air makes sense, but still, the British side should take off.

    The taking off mechanic is needed in Battlefield, please don't chop it DICE!

    wow really! This would really upset me. Add the battlefront style interface, the ridiculous 3D spotting and the women commander from the future the game play was disappointing. The reason battlefield has always been my go to game is because of its authenticity, and I didn't really feel I was fully immersed in a WW1 theatre of war.

    Right away my thoughts are BAD about this but lets really look at it from different angles.

    A game needs to be balanced in a conquest mode. The mode is Conquest and not steal the enemies planes.

    How many times that 1/3 of the team loses focus playing Conquest and make it there pure effort for the entire game to steal enemy assets? I have. I do it because it breaks the game. Again, the mode conquest and we should be playing conquest.

    This is nothing new in BF3 and BF4. Some maps you would spawn in and some you could take off.

    I hope for a game mode that as a lvl100 you can cap the base.

    So in previous BF titles, you would spawn at a base that would be in accessible to the opposing team, by the boundaries. Surely this can be crossed over.

    Is this a rhetorical question?

    It doesn't have to take off from the map. It could be a cut scene or you take off into fog and emerge in battle

    It prevents vehicle stealing, baseraping, spawntrapping and whatnot. BF4 did it this way too (excpet for SA DLC of course) and I'm perfectly fine with it.

    Yeah I love when they allow us to take off, not magically spawn in the air!

    They said there will be special role for tank crews, don't see a reason why there shouldn't be a role for pilot. So, you could spawn into the plane to prevent stealing, but could spawn with the plane on the ground and take off yourself.

    I have a bad feeling they dummied it down for the console people. Do the flight controls on these Biplanes still require you to understand Pitch, Roll, and Yaw? Or were they controlled like the stupid X-Wing in Battlefront. Anyone know?

    Dunno, but I'm guessing yaw will be controlled automatically, based on roll degree.

    Spawn in plane stops the fly boys c4ing your plane when they think it's their god given right to get it before you, so annoying.

    The flight controls are the same as in BF3 and Bf4.

    It might not look realistic but spawning in the sky gets you back in the action much faster and I don't think that's a bad thing.
