Title says it all, can we try half of the team across from each other in NW / SE combo with other team in SW / NE?  This will automatically create 2 separate divisions for teams and avoid slower ships being left behind.   Another option is to spawn the entire team on the side of the map (no not diagonally like it is now).  Another option, BBs up front, CCs behind them, and DDs spawn behind the CV.   The current setup doesn't work too well and the DDs ALWAYS rush....and die.

We had this for hot spot years ago. People complained it left the weak players to die every time. So hot spot was changed.

Did you never play the original Hot Spot? It was set up just as you describe, spawn wise, and was terrible to play on, especially for a carrier.

I don't believe many would want to see a return of that spawn layout. (The 5 cap version of the map can come back though. That was a good map layout, only failed by the awful team spawns)

Why not task force formation CVs and BBs in the center of a circle of DDs and CL/CAs? Often suggested. Yet to be seen.

No reason this couldn't be tried out for an entire day or two for feedback.  Everyone should be down for anything that discourages potato balls and lemming trains.

Cruisers are NOT "CCs".  They're CAs (heavy cruisers) or CLs (Light Cruisers)!!!

 

As for cross spawning, HELL NO!!!  That was tried early on and was a total cluster (bleep)!!!

The cross spawn version og Hot Spot was epic; it prevented lemming trains and forced you to work together with your squadron in more creative ways.

WG should bring back cross spawning at least as a xompetitive game mode.

You can try to differentiate classes of cruisers if you want, but CC covers them both.

We need a new class  -- the PS class, or paper ships.

CCs is not the proper terminology for Cruiser.  Period.  End of story.  In the USN's nomenclature, it meant "battlecruiser", though I use BC for battlecruiser because literally every game I've ever played used BC for Battlecruiser.

Regardless, what most people do is use CA to cover both types of cruisers.

In the end, "CC" is what totally ignorant noobs use for cruisers.
