Default Current FOB indicators on the Map

Currently in game these are the FOB indicators.

Yellow Triangle
Fob needs to be constructed.

Green Triangle with spawn point
Fob is active and spawn-able.

Green Triangle with no spawn point
Fob is built, but not spawnable due to enemies being close or it has just been built and count time before spawning is activated.

The last indicator is the only one where I think can be improved upon, many times you have no idea if the green triangle fob has enemies near-by disabling the spawn or if it has been recently constructed, this causes misunderstanding and times when you spawn in on another fob only to see the fob you were waiting for returns back to being spawn-able or you wait a long period of time to see the green triangle turn yellow.

This is the time when having an idea of what is happening around you/your map/in your team comes into play.

When the squad is down and people have to respawn, they talk to each other: "hey, that fob in blabla, did someone check if it was spawnable already? Did it just go down?" "No worries. Squad X placed it there 2 min ago but didn't bother to actually build it!" "Okay, nvm then!"

------

See where you are coming from but if you check your map as regularly as you should, imo there is no problem in telling if a FOB was there for a longer period of time or just got erected...most of the times at least.

You are inferring that other squads and other players not in your own squad have intelligence and understand English, have their mumble working, or understand how to reply to your questions referring the fob. Other players on PR are not always reliable.
