    as i mentioned some time ago in this post:
    I do get sometimes teleported back to the vehicle spawn platform from which I pulled my vehicle from. This occurs when I exit the vehicle for the first time. Then I find myself at the vehicle terminal instantly teleported. This happened recently quiet a lot and now again. Would be great if it would get fixed already. Last time it occured was on Miller Server, May 1st short before 15 hour MESZ.

    I've had this happen to me three time over the course of a week. It's usually when I get out to repair the vehicle, I'll get randomly teleported to a nearby base or the warpgate. It's never inside the spawn room either (so I know I didn't accidently fat finger the respawn key), it's usually within a few meters of a vehicle terminal. I haven't been able to replicate the issue, it's usually a random occurrence that happens when exiting a vehicle. It's happened twice in a lightning and once in an ant, so it's may not be limited to a specific vehicle. Could be a hotkey enabled for debugging that carried over into the live servers by mistake? Or maybe a client check that doesn't recognize your location upon exiting a vehicle, so it spawns you elsewhere? Don't know the cause, but hopefully it gets noticed and patched out. Nothing's ever patched out quickly unless it's a blatant exploit or game breaking bug, so I'm not holding my breath.

    Greetings! Would it be possible if you may make a short vid that could possible reproduce this issue? It will be very helpful for us.

    Hi Mithril. The steps to reproduce the bug are to draw a vehicle directly from the player deployment screen rather than by walking up to the vehicle pad. Then, exit the vehicle. There is about a 5% chance that the instant you exit the vehicle you will be redeployed back to the vehicle pad.

    Other than that I have never been able to figure out any other pattern, but it never happens if I walk up to the vehicle pad. Murphy's law says it is most likely on an ant with 10,000 cortium in the tank.
