    I have 2 suggestions that may or may not have been stated but need to be if not.

    1. The lobby signs are super annoying, there is always one map that is on almost every space because nobody wants to play it. My fix is add a timer so if there are people in the game, it will start, if not than it will vanish.

    2. The grace period when some one gets killed bothers the crap out me because you can not hit them and they just knock you off. So to change that it should be you cant hit them, but they can't hit you for how ever long .

    i completely agree on #1, but #2 seems confusing for me. i never heard about a truce timer.

    #2 is so they can't re spawn and hit you off with there 10 second invincibility, now if they accept this they can't hit you and you can't hit them

    Now i get it. well, i sorta agree and sorta disagree. its annoying how people can still hit you, however, if its removed, people will be encouraged to spawnkill so badly that the kill count will be broken so much.

    Or maybe it could be like a 30 second timer before you can respawn again?

    I don't have a problem with the #1
    And the #2, you need a grace period to protect the egg. Some people at the start of the game, rush to the enemy Island and try to destroy their egg and they need that period to protect it... Not everyone likes to play a game super fast.

    The only problem i see with this, is that games might start with only 3-4 players in the unpopular maps.

    I've voiced my frustrations with the spawn protection mechanism before. I also believe it can be very badly abused and result in the loss of your hard-earned gear and progress made toward destroying the other team's egg. If anything, it rewards the player for dying with a brief stint of invincibility.

    As for the lobby signs, the maps filling the board are the ones that are less popular. Think of it like eating a bag of jelly beans; your favorite might be red, green, and blue, but after you eat all of those, you're still left with the less popular purple jelly beans. Purple jelly beans may not be as good as their delicious counterparts, but at the end of the day, they're still jelly beans and they're still pretty good.

    If the community as a whole feels that a certain map is simply not fun, unbalanced, etc., we usually will do something to fix that problem, whether it be editing the map, removing the map, reducing the likelihood of the map popping up, or some other measure of remedying the problem. If you have a problem with a specific map, feel free to voice that opinion on the forums.

    I would say that #2 is not exactly a problem. The grace period can compensate with the gear differences when you respawn, because if you have no armour & a fist, against a diamond sword, you will die in 2/3 hits. That is very quick. It would actually encourage kill-chains, where you don't even get any points for killing other players, which I guess wouldn't go too well.
