Parachute on spawn beacon, server option DICE ?

Just asking if it would be possible for a server option to allow or disallow parachute on spawn beacon server side. I know there is disagreement amongst players as to crane on Canals, roof on Kharg etc. Could we have a server side option to make it possible to choose to allow it or disallow it. It would really help.

This is a question to DICE about the possibility of a server side option NOT a discussion about the relative merits of crane/roof camping being allowed or not.

I think it would be good for the player to choose whether to spawn whilst parachuting, HALO jumping or just straight on it.

This is a suggestion to DICE

If this question is for DICE, it's the wrong place to post. They don't monitor this forum. Get a hold of them on twitter.

Not sure what you mean by allow or disallow parachute. Do you mean there could be a server side option for an instant spawn on the beacon (no parachuting)? Or, are you asking to disallow beacons completely?

They make you parachute in as a negative to spawning on a beacon. If you could bypass that, it would be OP.

parachute spawn should be only available in maps with aircraft so we dont have 3 snipers ion the roofs

More annoying is 3 snipers a sniping, a medic to watching the sky and reviving and a support guy camping on an ammo crate throwing a hail of unending grenades...
It can make a match "interesting". lol

but yeah, it would be nice if they had a way of allowing server admins to limit this.

Uhm, if you want to parachute on a spawn beacon it must be in the open. That's how you can parachute.

If the spawn beacon is under a roof, you cannot parachute. You just spawn on the beacon.

Maps that can have aircraft in any gamemode allow you to parachute. I don't know why people are talking about the maps you can't spawn in considering that has nothing to do with the OP.

If only one class (snipers) can go somewhere then it's not fair play.
Dice must fix the radio beacon glitch ASAP

I mean being able to disallow parachuting in on spawn and being able to limit it to spawning at the beacon so people can't get to places you cannot get to from the ground.

I think that this is just the way that the game was intended to be played. Squads work in support of each other and hence towards the team goals.
The problem is that most people come in and expect to 'run an gun' without challenge.
The most OP set-ups in the game are due often because 2 or more players work together.
another example to your sniper one, Try killing a tank with an engineer risking all to repair it.

Regarding the spawning in on parachute. I think a good idea might be if you had the option to free-fall for a bit like when dropping out of the transport in EG or when forced to from a helicopter or plane. ... oh just read other post, it's already been suggested :-)

It would be great to have the option to paradrop or spawn directly down. At least with the paradrop you shouldn't auto-pull the chute

But any class can spawn on a beacon, TBH I don't see the problem, they're restricted to a roof top making them easy pickings.

"This is a question to DICE about the possibility of a server side option NOT a discussion about the relative merits of crane/roof camping being allowed or not."

I am well aware that there are differring opinions about whether it should or shouldn't be in the game. On OUR server we choose not to allow crane camping. Its a gameplay tweak that we would like to be able to enforce more easily. As some maps have parachute on spawn beacon and some don't I am thinking it must be a relatively easy thing for DICE to make available. It is available on all the maps with fliers but in certain game modes on those maps there are no fliers.
