Question from thatmugshot
Would you ever consider changing the 'press to struggle' button which seems to punish players who experience a dip in connection with their death. A possible change could be 'hold to give up'. That would also avoid the people who spam the button before finding out about the change.
There is different opinions about this in the Design team. It's not planned to be changed soon.
