Make the timers longer for scavs and PMC as well

it takes me a good 2-5 minuets at the beginning of each round to get my bearings, find a safe place not in the open. Open my map, plot a course to where I want to go maybe get in a fire fight with a player scav that is for some reason camping other player scav spawns rather than going after PMCs.

Then some times I get turned around and that can eat a few more minuets and by the time I get where I need to go and loot what I want to loot I only have 3 minuets left to go from say Dorms to Old gas station or trailer park cabin. That leaves not enough time to make it to the extraction and you end up going "MIA". Oh and you most defiantly wont have enough time if you get into a fire fight. 

Not to mention some of us like to do sneaky snooping and pooping kind of work where you sneak in and move slow into a building and try not to get noticed while you loot stuff.

I ninja crawled through a grass field and stole a snipers loot from his kill  right out from under his nose , got away clean too. It would have been one of my biggest hauls, if it had not been for my first time playing on woods and when I got to my extraction point with 30 seconds to spare  only to learn that "I require a PMC with me to use this extraction" (Oh im going to make another thread about making some changes to that horse poo right there) it was obviously to late to go see if one of the other two extraction points that had ?????? next to them were open. I seriously had to fight back tears and keep myself from crying. 

 

please, this game is rough enough on me. Please consider doing this.

Although on some maps the old, longer timers would be nice, you also have to take some blame for yourself. I mean eating while playing is your problem, the same with not knowing maps and extracts! If you don’t even know where you can extract, I don’t think you should be blaming the game and cry for changes. Learn them in offline mode and then start playing. Also, just figure out before you go into a raid what you want to do this time and where your route will take you

So I have come to know customs pretty well, well enough, I don't even really need to use my map for it anymore unless im trying to gain a reference on what side of a building im on. And whereas I do shoulder some of the blame the short timer is forcing me to cut through meat grinder areas causing me to have to go around a whole damn factor complex. Or forces me to cut through player scav spawns. 

I honestly don't see what adding an extra 5 minuets would hurt, like I said this game is rough enough.

 

Oh between the time I made this topic and when im writing this I did a scav run on customs, my timer ran out and screen faded black right as I was one inch from stepping into the railroad extraction area. Had a really nice haul too.

I agree, but would add this to the topic.. perhaps a selection of perhaps three raid lengths as a pre raid option? one super short for PVP runners like QuattroAce.. a longer one [same as it is now in time] and a longer one for SlowPlay / RP players who might be making a video or just need more time to up stealth skills by , well, playing stealthy.. a Ninja / Shadow Assassin shouldn't be beaten on because his/her play style is slower, in fact it is much harder to play slow and live so ..thats my 25 cents ..I hope someone agrees with me at BSG :)

I still feel the same, but  I have another option to offer...

When starting a raid, if a Player could select how much time [from a selection]  so select a 25 min raid, or a 40 min raid or an hour raid. then everyone would/could be happy. :)
