If anyone has seen a 30 second respawn time they should screenshot it because it's not possible

Team Fortress 2 manages its respawn times in waves. The default respawn wave is 10 seconds. This would mean that players are spawned every 10 seconds. However, when server population is high, you may have to wait for the wave after. In this case, the maximum respawn time any individual would have is 20 seconds.

Modifying the timer could be an option but there are simply too many variables for removing it completely. Certain matchups would go from "Blu might not win" to "Blu can not win". Could you imagine red pyros instantly respawning against blu spies?

I'll start recording the matchups and who wins to get a little bit of data and see if the server tends to lean towards one class or another. I'm going to guess it favors blu just a bit because mirror matches almost always result in blu victory.

Not always. Usually if the class is considered Offensive, BLU will win. If it's Defensive, RED will win. If it's Support, well, that's a case-by-case basis.
