This has been a gripe of mine since RO2, pretty self-explanatory.
There is nothing more annoying to me in this game than being spawned where I didn't select to be spawned.
In the case of the Americans, it's especially annoying if I get placed back at spawn due to force respawn and my SL already has a spot onto the frontline that I miss out on as I haven't had the time to select it.
In the case of VC/NVA, if I am making inroads at one part of the map and Ho Chi Minh spawns me at the other side of the map, it's all that effort wasted. A simple dialogue box (using F1/F2 or F3/F4 keys) would suffice, or at least make it optional to turn this feature on. I'm sure I'm not alone in this

Maximum distance from objective for force deploy would be better and even then it would require some balancing to get it right.
