They didn't do anything of the kind on twitter other than announce they were removing it. They certainly never commented on it after said announcement.

Exactly, they just made an announcement saying they were removing it. I remember.....

Posting an announcement on twitter isn't asking that's telling.....

True, but if the player count went up, it cannot be a bad thing.

Needs of the many I think.  A few (even many) may not like, but if the masses do then ultimately that is what matters.

The player count went up because round about that time HC Dom was released.

HC Dom was very highly requested.

Strictly speaking about HCTDM I am.  I am not talking about the HC player count, I am talking about HCTDM player count

No, the spawn timer was removed when HCKC was added in December, HCDOM didn't come until April. Adding DOM was the last thing Treyarch did for HC.

HC DOM wasn't released until several months after the spawn delay was removed from HCTDM.  The player count for HCTDM also rose quite a bit afterwards and it was the second most popular game type after Core TDM, even posting better numbers than core Dom

I just fail to see in my honest opinion that numbers rose noticeably because the spawn time was removed for HC TDM. Are you seriously telling me 1000s of people wouldn't play HC because of spawn timer in it?

HC was still incredibly fast paced with spawn timer on due to the small maps.

I think more people flocked into HC because you had so much bull crap happening on core.

You are in charge of a VTOL warship.  You can see a spawn point.  Is it your fault only a few were easy targets?  You prepped up and earned your kills and you get simple few?

What if they spawned off radar and you got a minute or two more?  In other words, there is no red diamond over them for two seconds?

What if your camping around a spawn point and a chopper crashes in?  You know this chopper has some goods, but you can't seem to let up on gunning down?

The devs need to be in charge of a match and start spanking bad behavior.  You could be a really good shot, ..at killing spawns.  If your spawn totals rack up, I think you should wear that.  I think your badge should reflect what you do, and I think you should wear a spawn slaughter in recognition of your kills.
