Whenever you go in down state you have a chance of coming back up if you get to rally, I get that much. What I'm wondering is a bit more in depth for tactics on respawning. My question is if you go into the downed state, does your respawn timer start then, or does it start when you are actually defeated?
Couple reasons this would help to know. Say I just got someone into the down state and he has no chance to rally against me, it would be better for me to not finish him off but instead leave him in the down state for the longest time possible to prevent a respawn. But if the respawn starts from the moment you go into down state, then it doesnt matter if I annoy him for an extra 10-20sec into down state since when he does actually die he would just instant respawn if the timer was already going.
Another reason would be when you yourself go into down state, you have to decide if you would be wasting more time trying to rally or just letting yourself die as quick as possible if the respawn timer starts when you are actually defeated.
If anyone know this mechanic I would appreciate an answer, ty.
