Yes I would like to know how come this is a respawn timer in hctd I fill that we do not need a timer and I think they should take it out all together and I say a lot of other people fill the same way
The game could take an hour if they did not have the timer. When the new maps come out most people hide to see where the other team is going to go. They don't know the maps yet. Other just never move. Get most of the players on both teams hiding and waiting to shoot something that runs by them and the game will never end.
Hardcore likes to punish you when you die. Thats why they add 5 secs to your respond every time when you die.
