Hang on... I'm not 100% clear on this. Scenario: You are a grenadier and you spawn into an APC. Unfortunately, the gunner position is the last spot left as all the other soldiers who have spawned in on it have moved into the back to avoid dying after 10secs. You didn't know this as there is no indication from the spawn map. You also discover the driver is in a full squad so you can't even join to tell him over VOIP to stop to let you out. The APC is hurtling over the desert sand dunes as you spawn into it. What are you going to do? Jump out in the middle of the desert and literally break your leg, severing an artery? You survive for a little while, but there's no medics around and your standard issue first aid kit aint gonna help much, so you die.
OR, are you gonna wait in the APC turret as the rear is full and let the 10sec timer count down to your death and have to wait to respawn again...
The other choice is to type frantically and in vein at the driver to stop.

Small chance of this happening I know, but it will happen. Am I right in thinking in this scenario you are literally buggered?

It happened... It was funny for us, but the driver saw it and stopped his APC, some guys jumped out of the vehicule and the problem was resolved

Yeah you're buggered.

The devs will evetually have to think up a work-around for it, but its gonna be like this in the mean time. The only quick work-arounds I can think of are:

1) Combine the gunner + driver for APCs (like they are in vanilla), although this would be a step backwards.

Or

2) Remove the crewman requirments for APC gunners.

Dunno if the devs really wanna go with those solutions or think of something new entirely. Honestly, I *rarely* see the scenario you described, but it could happen once in a blue moon.

why not remove the gunner seat from the spawn points in an apc and only allow crewman kit owners ONLY to get into the gunner seat altogether

it sounds to easy - you devs probably thought of that solution the first time...is it possible to code or not?

For that rare situation our answer would be "wtf are you doing 'half crewing' the most powerful vehicle in the game?"

As for the new thing .. it's been a part of wars and battles since the first wars and battles ever occurred on the planet. It's really overhyped now lol, I was thinking we'd spend more time playing games around how it was going to be used

Cheers!
