While playing lockdown, I've noticed that sometimes I respawn in 5 or so seconds, and sometimes it takes me upwards of 20.

Why is that? Is it related to how well I'm doing? It seems to go up when I die a lot. Is it some kind of balancing? How can I keep my respawn time low?

I believe that Lockdown tries to respawn players in waves - teamfortress 2 does something similar. – Raven Dreamer Nov 20 '12 at 3:13

There is a rolling respawn queue.

This means that when the timer reaches 0 every knight waiting is respawned, and the counter is reset.
