Yes more people on the pad at one time will speed up the process. At this time we're thinking 20-30 minutes uncontested, it kind of seems like a long time to me, but at the same time we would like to give time for others to arrive and fight over it. The max timer will be 1 hour, so if a few groups are fighting over it it wont last longer than that unless it goes into sudden death overtime. Of course ALL these timers can and will be adjusted as necessary. It will be up to you guys, the players, to decide the best time frames and we wont know for certain without playing it. --- Post updated --- Or a completely new system that actually takes place in the water.
