Playing ZM, can be quite a chore having to keep up with your entire undead army and traps to kill those damn survivors, however one thing always nagging me is getting spammed by players demanding instant respawns, this can be a common annoyance on an every day basis.

To spice it up a bit, I decided to give the survivors these fictional secondary objectives to getting teammates respawned. These objectives can either be easy or deadly (furthering crippling the team)

Such as one this one map, with a bomb rigged to a car, I put in an secondary-objective (SO) where there was a "survivor" trapped in the car, and running up to the car would respawn a random teammate. After some debate, one of the humans finally got bold enough and ran up, dying instantly as I pulled the trap but fair enough I respawned a teammate.

On Blue Velvet, with the entire team wiped out except for one lone guy, I gave him the choice to run back up to the surface to the phone and "call for help" that would respawn half the team which would cause the the primary objective to get overrun and not to mention the risk of getting killed getting back up there!

Little fun things I've thought of that could really make the game more fun haha, too bad there isn't a teleport respawn so I could plant them right at that phone, for example. Think of the closets in L4D, but a more dynamic form. :-D

I personally don't like the re-spawning of survivors, it kinda removes the point of the name survivor. ZM is its own game compared to the other zombie games. Though that is a nice idea to make them earn their re-spawn. Better if there was trigger to do so than the ZM.

Yeah like a plug-in where they only respawn at certain points. Haha, would make it more immersive. The quality of actually "surviving" has gone down though, most people aren't as careful or cautious as they used to be on the server since they are used to instant respawns on other servers.

the few times i respawn people is when they die in a glitch or they get killed at the very start by something that was not their fault in the end respawning is just a mater of if the ZM wants to do it
