Ok, how long do I have to wait after being killed to safely engage so that I don't have to wait 2-3 minutes to spawn if I'm killed? What a stupid thing to have in the game.

Left bottom corner. There is respawn counter there.

Every 5 minutes you get extra life, however, you can stockpile only two. If you already got two extra lifes timer will simply start again.

Not "stupid"... intelligent.  It is to make players need to be smart about how they use or abuse their "limited by time" supply of tanks.

 

On the bottom left of your screen it shows the "buildup" of "reserve" tanks in your "inventory", pay attention to this.

 

Stop yoloing indiscriminately.

Or maybe WG should have you spawn in where the game says you will, instead of in front of 6 enemy tanks?

 

Stop yoloing indiscriminately into the forums without acknowledging that most other people here are NOT WG shills.

Yes stop yoloing and try to reset  ... Stop anything that has to do with resetting when it comes to losing tanks.. Do no risk any tanks in any way shape or form... Just farm farm farm... Do not help your team mates that are retreating if you are almost dead..

 

Sounds pretty stupid hey ?    What you expect from WG ?

Got to be the dumbest thing I have read in months, so new or und unskilled, should not try to get better, or not receive millions in credits for playing this mode. How is it greedy, cost nothing but time to play. You should put the game away, and go back to school, because you need to learn math.

odd because when I respawn and am auto killed by camping ebrs/progettos I had to wait almost 7 minutes....maybe you should try front line with 1 tank and then say its 5  minutes.   not anymore they changed from 5 minutes to 7 to make earning prestige easier.

 

and that is why I do not waste my time anymore on FL.  long que and more like a firing squad when you respawn

Admittedly I don't play that much but I've never had that happen. Sure, it could, but it's hardly the norm.

Actually it's not, if anything it's the opposite.

The tank respawns were increased to minimize how much time players would have certain tanks available. The counter hasn't changed. The top wait I get is about 3:45 and I think it's stoopid as L. Especially, since most of the time I'm in the penalty is from trying to defend the cap. There should be exclusion zones for the penalty that grants another tank if your killed in the zone.

Again, this just makes your earlier statement sound even more dumb. It may be badly made mode in your eyes, but you have stated nothing to justify anything you said earlier. As for number of games, you played more than me, just means I have a life, while you in your momma's basement.

Limiting respawn improves the game IMO.  Lockout of tank after killing it is good to.  When I finally manage to kill an EBR, I dont want that guy respawning it immediately.

 

As others have said, bottom left shows available respawns and counters to the next.  I play aggressively when I have 2 respawns, I play situationally when I have 1, and if I have 0 and the counter has more than 30 seconds, I try to play cautious, although I often cant help myself.  Cap points and reset points are key to ranking up, so well timed aggression is very important.

Wuh?  My kids (8 and 10) love this game mode above all.  The youngest is very bad at the game.  The older one is okay at it.  This mode gives lots of advantages to below average players.  It's also more forgiving because nobody really cares if you win or lose.
