OW Increasing respawn timer for max frustration



They are adding time to your respawn timer when your team trickles in. I like the idea of doing away with stalling and trickling but this is not the right way to do it. Does anyone else think it’s just going to piss them off, I feel like this is a situation where they should have incentivized not stalling and/or grouping up before attacking instead of punishing teams that do. They told this to everyone via a patch update but only people who know about it and use their brains will pay attention. That means that in addition to those idiots trickling in and dying, they are going to increase my respawn time also. I think it was a backward way of handling it. What do you guys think?


This is one of those things that I think will make the comeback victory a bit harder if the enemy is snowballing, but I think it’s going to take some serious hours by the community to determine if it’s actually having a negative impact on the game. I’m very divided on whether this is a good change or not.
