The only maps that spawning really affects are close ranged maps, the key one would be ash, and probably nuubia.  While voland is bad, a fast throwing knife wouldn't help out there, because you wont get killed as soon as you spawn, you just get trapped up there.  I personally don't see any problem with this change with the knife.  It barely affects people, and only in certain situations.

I like that feature taken out, being spawnkilled with knife like that is one of the most irritating things in the game imo.

I guess it gave knife-users too much of an advantage over any other secondary users at spawn. Spawnkilling's part of the game.

Offtopic: a bug was crawling across my screen and I thought it was just some cool thing on the forums.

As a previously hardcore active clan member, I can vouch that this was a great idea. You arent supposed to be able to shoot or be shot at during that 3 second invincibility, this includes knives.

MM Made this change all on his own, without any influence from beta testers.

Yeah I agree, no one else could do it so why should the knife users be able too? Pretty much is just common sense.

ok cool, because yah killing the enemies just as they spawn was really useful, and usually not many people know how to use knife just as they spawn anyways from what ive seen, its always nades nades nades

so i guess i dont really have to worry.
