The article says it isn't easy to do, so flattening enemies as you spawn probably isn't going to be too common.
I'm probably just lucky but I've done it in something like my 8th ever match.

I think it sounds a bit pointless tbh, you could choose to spawn at other zones you owned previously, and the dropping crates thing will just serve to enfuriate you when you're trying to capture an enemy base and get dropped n.

I'm not sure if this is news, because i noticed it happen once in one of the gameplay videos we've seen, but i don't think it was mentioned. I was just reading some articles about StarHawk and i found out that there will be a new spawning system which sounds so awesome imo.
Instead of having you magically appear in a certain section of the map, you’re dropped from the sky in a drop pod. One of the coolest aspect of respawning from the sky, is choosing where in your base you want to land. It may not sound like a lot, but there’s a double bonus here. Respawn Dropping can only be done in areas you team currently occupies. We expect this to benefit the zone game type more than any other. If you’re struggling to hold a zone, and are in need of some help, just have a few of your teammates drop in. Be sure to have them aim their drop pods so they can crush most of the enemies coming against you.
This leads into the other part of pod dropping that adds to the fun. If you’re able to direct your landing you can pancake your enemies, sending them to their certain death. The drop of death, though very cool, isn’t easy to do, but if you can direct your drop onto some unlucky foes in the wrong place at the wrong time, it’s a priceless moment that will award you some additional rift energy, and a satisfying kill.
Thoughts on this? Personally i think it sounds awesome and a lot of fun, however at the same time i think it's a bit odd how you get a great chance to kill someone before you even spawn into the game. I think it must be very tricky to do. But it sounds really cool, i think it might make me almost happy to get killed so i get the opportunity to do this
