is this fair???

ok, im reffing a game of regeneration (if you get hit, you walk to the deadbox, and get back in), and team A got the edge and all of them were either at the 50, or the snake. team B kept respawning themselves and offcourse just got lit up as soon as they took off from the deadbox. we eventually just made team A go back to there spawning point. and of course, they got the edge again, but stayed behind the 30 line or so.

is it fair to let them pretty much sweet-spot the deadbox when they respawn or should we have a rule to atleast let the respawner have 5 seconds or so to get to a bunker before letting them shoot him?

Ive seen people put a red line on the ground, where you come in where you cant be shot or cant shoot either.

I like the idea of just stacking bunkers in the area because i dont think there should be a rule preventing someone shooting a re-spawner. In my opinion, its just strategy. so, make it easier for a player to get out of the dead box, but still allow them to be shot.

Another Idea would be to set up 2-3 bunkers that can be selected as spawn points. It wont stop the issue all the time, but it will help prevent it.

respawn games on a smaller field, especially a speedball field, always turn into this. Short of limiting players to the 30 there's not much that can be done. I know a few fields that will restart a respawn game as soon as one team gets a good position on their opponents respawn point. You could also try putting up a center flag, first time to pull down the flag wins. Or have the players walk out of the respawn point with their guns above their heads, as soon as they get to a bunker (back row only) they put down their arms and then they're in the game.

I'd probably set up a center bunker that players could make it to fairly easily. The same thing happens in X-ball matches when a player somes out of the penalty box.
