How often do you people die? I might die 2-3x in an entire match, and I'd consider an abnormally bad one. I'm a Tac/Escort on top of that, so I should be dying more than anyone. What exactly are you people doing that is causing you to die multiple times in a 3 minute span?
Invisible Borg one-shots through full shields and Hull for high six digit damage.
I was just thinking, maybe that new timer isn't all that bad... We get a lot of noobs with bad builds in elite STF, and they die a lot and are pretty useless to begin with, perhaps this will actually help out the veteran elite STF players, by driving the noobs out of the match.
Think about it, they die a few times, then have to wait so long to get back in, they get frustrated and leave, they want the elite drops though, so they do what they should have done in the first place, and go check the forums for proper build and strategy advice. Could have a positive effect.
