Okay, i don't know if this happens to anyone else but this pisses the **** out of me. Sometimes in the middle or towards the end of a game, I'll be playing alone waiting for someone to join. At the last 5 seconds of the trader before the new round begins, someone joins the game but they don't spawn and the specimens that were meant for both of us stack all on top of me. So instead of fighting 56 specimens I'm fighting the 119 intentionally spawned for 2 people. I usually end up dying and it is very problematic. The specimen limit shouldn't double unless the fckn other people actually spawn, not when they join the game. Most of the time it's somewhere in between the last 5 seconds and *boop-join* "triple the ****ing specimens for you, sorry whore."

practice makes perfect. if you die you die. next map. big deal.

Yeah that about sums it up. It's not their fault that they spawn the 5 seconds right before another wave comes in. They can't tell from the server select menu. And we've all done the same, whether we realize it or not. We just deal.
