Ok one thing I hate the most is when ur shot you fly through the air for a long time. I find this very boring and was wondering if it could be fixed even if you just make it shorter

There is a server variable (_explodeTime) that can be modified to reduce or increase the respawn delay.

And if you get bored in the five seconds that that takes by default, perhaps you should consider doing something to increase your attention span :)

The server can control how long the explosion arc takes to complete. (It's the _explodeTime variable). It is not a bug, so it won't be "fixed". If you find it boring to way 5 seconds...well, don't die so much. :P
