I watch the respawn counter 10 times longer than I actually play, why is this damn thing 75 seconds long? I end up just Alt-Tabbing out and watching TV.

Different missions and different situations have different respawn counters. It depends on when and where you are and what you're doing.

I haven't seen a respawn timer longer than 10 seconds.

Each time you die in a short amount of time the counter increases it is meant to punish people who keep dying to much. Only way to avoid it to stop dying a lot in a short period of time. The timer does not increase if you go long periods of time between death.

In STFs, the more you die, the higher your respawn timer. After about three minutes or so, it resets.

Same thing for NWS except that it doesn't reset.

You're right, dying a lot does hurt the team. People should stop doing that.

Counter does not hurt the team; people who die too often, do.
