My problem is quite simply what's in the title. I had an MC of four, as well as one or two other randoms, attacking my Yacht during a Piracy Prevention. Nothing out of the ordinary, but, they were all being spawned back on the Yacht.

Before anyone draws their smart-arse card and says they're not participating in the Piracy Prevention, I will make it clear that they were capable of capturing the upper deck. Some-****ing-how, I managed to fend them all off for the duration of the attack. But, it's still baffling to me how they kept spawning on the Yacht.

Does anybody know if this is something Rockstar has specifically done? It can't simply be because of the MC, because two randoms were also able to do it, and they were all capable of capturing the Yacht.

You say MC of 4 do you mean CEO? Also did they travel to your yaught at all before spawning on your boat? It would be cool to see some video footage could be onto an exploit of yaught capture there

Yesterday happen to me and i think it makes sense.

When you reach the yacht if you die there you will always respawn on the yacht

I'm pretty sure they never used to, if anyone got killed they spawn back on the shore. But yea as of recent I've noticed they always spawn on the yacht once they've reached it.
Which is really stupid and annoying because you can effectively go to the yacht in passive, come out of passive and it doesn't matter if you get killed because you'll still be right there on the yacht

Last time i played piracy it didn't allow me to go out of passive whilst an organisations work was running, i think you need to be passive before the work starts perhaps? I remember i used to play and get so excited when a prevention came up it was my devious goal to capture a yaught, its really not too hard to just go otr and parachute to it really, and rpg the squad in the process :tongue:

This....if you don't make it, you spawn on the beach.

I'm not even going to answer the first question. I know the difference between an MC and an Organisation. As for the second question: Yes.

After playing a few more Piracy Preventions, I've figured out that Rockstar have now changed the spawn system during them. When people were attacking my Yacht, I would let them land on it before killing them, and every time, they would repeatedly respawn on the Yacht. So, it's pretty simple:

If the Attacker(s) land(s) on the Yacht, they will start spawning on the Yacht for the duration of the Piracy Prevention.

If the Attacker(s) fail(s) to land on the Yacht, they will simply spawn back on the beach like normal.

I find this update good for Attackers, but bad for Defenders... That's, if, the Attacker is better than the Defender.. otherwise it's just Rockstar letting the Defender show how much of a bad idea it was to try and capture another mu'a ****a's boat.

You are completely wrong.
Nope, hes not. Make it to yacht - spawn on yacht, get blown sky high upon approach to yacht - spawn on shore.

Correction: You're both wrong. It hasn't always been like that. You would always respawn on the beach. I know this from experience as both an Attacker, who was blown up while capturing a Yacht, and I would always spawn back on the beach, and; as a Defender, who enjoyed killing people repeatedly after letting them land on the Yacht, just to shoot them dead.

The 'spawn on the Yacht if you made it to the Yacht' feature is something that has only recently been introduced (recently could be two or so months).
