    spawn invulnerability

    Do we want it on? How long should it be set to? What were the playtesting servers set to?

    i say 2 seconds tops. 3 seconds is too long imho, and may lead to long stalemates, or have other consequences that i'm too lazy to elaborate on that involve momentum.

    co maps are fast.. i see no reason to have invulnerability. It would just make the games longer... If it comes to the point when you are spawning then dieing that just means you are loosing.

    be patient the game will end soon enough

    Dude, Why bother with it on, If i'm in the aliens hive I'm hitting the hive, not the aliens anyway. And the aliens would get stomped on if they couldn't kill spawning marines as the rest bite the CC.

    No invuln time. It was removed during the beta because it created stalemates where marines were defending and would get a sizable headstart on any attacking aliens while they were still invulnerable. Thus, aliens had an extremely hard time breaking the marine base. It really sucks for alien attackers and draws out Combat a lot.

    For now we'll leave it off. Continue to use this thread to comment based on more and more games. If there's enough demand for it, we'll do what is necessary with this variable.

    That was worth mentioning twice.

    I played on servers with it on, I hated it, For exactly this reason.
