I’m not suggesting changing anything too dramatic, but I hate that the hunter countdown timer displays JUST the 2 minutes and think it should be changed.
When a hunter is dead, a 2 minute timer ensues until he/she can return. This can be a critical timer especially when there is only one hunter left versus a stage 3 monster that could potentially destroy the relay. So this timer plays a large role in strategy based on the situation. What I, myself, sometimes forgets and others fail to realize is the extra 7 or so seconds it takes for the dropship to reach the drop zone area, open the cargo bay doors, and for the hunters to drop in and and the players to actually use their weapon/abilities. These extra seconds, strategically, can be crucial and overlooked because there is no indication as to how much time it takes for the hunters to land
I don’t think the time should change from the 2 minutes, and am not suggesting this 2 minute timer be changed. A hunter should have exactly 2 minutes to survive. I just think that either total timer should countdown the seconds it takes until the hunters physically can land and shoot/move/are fully back into the map or that a side timer should be placed after the 2 minute one. Thoughts?
