Can Anyone Explain?

General Discussion
Blizzard claims the reasoning behind the higher repair costs stems mostly from "Death Zerging". I take that to mean people go in on a champ pack, will die, then run back and continue whaling on said pack over and over until it dies.

1) With the unbelievable combos you get, how could this be wrong?
2) I've yet to see a pack not regain it's full health by the time I make it back to them - am I just really unlucky?

Or am I missing something?

If I'm not, I hardly see how that is a good basis for upping the cost of repairs.
holy crap they put one downside to dying and you get your undies in a bunch, "blizz beat the game for me, and farm me gold while you're at it"
I hardly think my "undies are in a bunch". I'm asking a simple question.

Because they are smoothing out (in other words, nerfing) the damage and reducing damage "spikiness" overall in Inferno acts 2-4. And straight up nerfing specific champion affixes such as invulnerable minions and shielding.

It depends. Do you intentionally pull champions back to your spawn point to ensure you don't have to run at all in order to get back into the fight? Do you play solo or in 4 player games, where there is a much greater chance to keep the champion pack in combat at all times by players bannering to each others corpses? Do you engage champion packs when your respawn timer is already at 30 seconds or do you always make sure you wait in town for 2 minutes to reset it back to 3 seconds?
Simple economics. Risk v Reward. If you risk of dying is minimized by the massive amount of gold you get for death zerging than there is no penalty to death. When a legit strategy for some packs is keep respawning to get a few shots in something needs to be fixed.

Not everything is a conspiracy.

I tend to play solo, and I engage wherever they are at whatever time. I don't give a lot of thought to repawn timers, but I guess that in conjunction with kiting back to spawn point makes sense.

It's a bummer that everyone will get penalized for the faults of a few. = / Thanks for the info.
