If a foundry author wants to dev their mission like Cryptic, then put a gear warning label in its description so I can stay away from it. Nothing makes me forget a good foundry story like respawning 2+ times in that mission.
I'm actually not trying to make people respawn.
I typed that with tongue firmly in cheek.
It is very difficult to find the right combat balance, and I simply often err on the side of making a combat challenging enough that you might have to think about it some, which for some people ends up meaning a respawn.

Combat is incredibly difficult to balance with the tools we have available.
It's as simple as that.
