Spawning

How does the server decide where the client spawns?

Earlier almost the whole of the opposition spawned in front of me which leads me to believe it isn't that random

I feel like it spawns you near a teammate part of the time.

unless zones are defined, the server generates random spawn zones

I got that a lot temporal when i had a map with only about 3 tank spaces to land in, it would drop me from the wall height (which was like 10000). Teammates usually spawn together.

If teammates usually spawn together that would explain it.

Thanks ;)
