Why is Drone altitude spawn still so high?

You are stating that in your average match SPAA is not spawned. That is not representative of what is being discussed. The mechanic of spawning drones at an altitude which puts them both outside of the range of their weapons while being visible and in range for SACLOS SPAA is not balanced and should be changed.

How about this. Revert the spaa nerf, then give drones a second spawn zone.

The SPAA nerf was due to the addition of the Pantsir

They’re not going to remove the Pantsir

That wasnt the reason. It is just another thing were gaijin thinks they are adding a neat realistic mechanic without thinking about how it will fuck over the game. Like when they added the mechanic where your pilot would pull less when hurt. It had to he removed because if your pilot took any amount of damage, your plane was stuck pulling no more than like 2Gs.

I disagree.

It is the reason they gave. It is also true that it is more “realistic” but there are realistic things that are not healthy for a video game.
If you think they are lying about everything, you can believe that. I just think that they dont always think through what they put out.

Drone spawn remains too high to be functional.

If you are unwilling to make the feature functional remove it from the game.

Drones spawn 3500 meters high and 11 KM away from the battlefield.

Their weapon range is 8 KM

Enemy SPAA can easily dispatch them before they are within range. The spawn zone for drones needs to be adjusted.

Why do you keep changing your story lmao

Where did I change my “story”?

What is my “story”?

Let’s see, First you said “Drones spawn - 9.000 meters from the battlefield”. Then you said “10,000 meters from the battlefield AND are 3,000 meters in the air”, then you said they spawn 3,500 meters high, and 11,000 meters away from the battlefield

Damn I hate when I look at the ingame altitude and see that I’m 3500 meters high and 11 KM away from the OBJ so I update my thread with current relative information to the topic.
