The title says it all. Im tired of being spawn camped and dying right away, maybe 2 or 3 sec spawn shield?

+1 → 3 seconds would be plenty

Actually….there’s a “prepare 5 seconds” option if I remember correctly.

Actually spawn shield is a great idea because of spawn killing like at CS:GO 5 second spawn shield.

Maps aren’t big enough for that.. and you have no idea how annoying to is to have a spawn shields.

ummm maybe if the person with the shield couldn’t shoot… because if they had a shield the guy would just shoot and be unkillable plus it should only be for like 5 secs so they have plenty of time to take cover..

But.. what they won’t do is take cover. Just imagine on small maps like lego or minecraft_v2 where you have 5 seconds to get to the other side of the map while being invulnerable and just killing anyone their path. Even if the person with the shield couldn’t shoot.. it would be terrible for them. This is because there is an animation of pulling out your gun whether it be AWP, M4, or Ak. You wouldn’t be able to get your gun out fast enough to kill them before they kill you. Especially against good players.

5 seconds is a long time.. and if not a shield maybe the spawns could be changed so that it’s not in an open area maybe??

Really what this needs is better designed maps… in Team Fortress 2 each team generally gets their own spawn room (or several spawn rooms). These rooms have a special door that blocks access to enemies to avoid spawn camping, but allies can move through just fine. No 5-second spawn shield or anything, yet I have never personally seen anybody get spawn camped.

Of course this would require a massive overhaul of all of the maps… which probably will never be implemented :(

Spawn rooms are awesome but a big change for all the maps. We could just switch the spawns around and fix problems for the most part.
