Getting a death when trying to spawn in a plane.

I've noticed that a few times now, in the beginning of a game, I am trying to be the first to spawn into a plane. After several seconds of waiting, the plane gets no longer available (I'm still at the spawn screen), but out of nowhere I get 0/1 (the 1 being a death coming from nowhere).

Anyone else experiencing this?

    @Trokey66 seems to be our expert on this

    Same here. In general it appears to be loading lag during the first spawn. It's become more noticeable since the last update.

    Common occurence when multiple ppl try to spawn, best advice. Pull the stick back, so you dont crash

    You crashed your plane the previous game end of round. Welcome to free deaths

    No, it's a start of round issue when multiple players are trying to spawn.
    You are technically in the plane but only seeing the spawn screen, so plane just crashes and you die.
    Happens to me mostly on Sinai.

    Cavalry class is still very bugged as well when spawning at start of a round as wrong class - pilot, tanker etc.

    Yes, always a fun way to start a round.

    Yes, exactly this. Happens to me in the beginning of a round and it just happened on Sinai before I decided to post about it.

    I've noticed this too. The secret to surviving it is to pull up a bit, letting your plane fly aimlessly for a bit until you finally spawn in it all the way across the map.

    The upside to this bug is that you can exploit it to select a different class before you actually spawn. I've been flying planes as a Medic. :D

    That is not an upside, how do you repair your plane?

    Sometimes when I spawn in a gunner position and the plane is out of bounds for infantry but not planes, it wont register that I'm in a plane and I die from being out-of-bounds. It doesn't happen very often but enough that I notice it.

    The plane/vehicle/cavalry spawn at the beginning of the rounds needs some serious fixing.

    I spawn on a horse and I'm a tanker.
    I spawn in a tank and I'm cavalry (with no wrench hence no repairs)

    Please fix this

    That bug has been plaguing the game since launch and it's still happening along with other bugs, meanwhile DannyonPC finds a way to get camping tanks using landmines and a motorbike and it gets patched a month later, go figure that one out
