I see the reason for respawning of mobs if there are a lot of players around in the same area, but why do they respawn if there is no one around? This just does not make sense, also itīs a real immersion breaker - you never feel like you have an impact on the world, or actually "cleaned" an area of mobs - the same with destroying crates, speeders or detonators - 2 minutes later itīs all reset. Why? I donīt even see other players around on my ghost town server most of the time.

Just imagine you're in a real world like the Twilight Zone - that scary episode where everything is fake and made of plastic and it turns out you're in a child's doll house.

But really, if they didn't respawn what if you needed to kill a particular type of enemy for a mission or just for more looting - would you rather have to run even further to do so?

Yeah and the game doesn't change spawn times based on how many people are currently on your planet. The only place you won't get re-spawns is in instanced areas. Well, actually mobs re-spawn there after a while too. :P

What if you were the only person on the planet and you were trying to farm for a certain loot drop. You'd be pretty bummed if nothing respawned...
