I know of the suggestions on the main forums about editing the map using the editor and setting the regionspawnoverride param.
However that seems not to work.
Even the pre-loaded g-portal maps (the new ones), players spawn into an empty island with no freeport. It seems like it's the correct island though.
Does anyone have suggestions on making this work? I've got a ticket with support also, as the game is not really playable without this working
