Allowing forces to deminish for a longer period of time allows for strategic territory to change hands, instead of continuously being under assault while players respawn, are healed by medics, WHATEVER, and get right back in the fight.
I admit, the biggest reason I'm turned off from airsoft is the whole medic rules/respawn. Every "milsim" game I have attended has been ruined (in my eyes) by people respawning and getting healed after less than a minute. It diminishes the value of eliminating the enemy.
There has to be a real penalty for getting shot. I think an hour is a good figure.
