As title - What's the point of that senseless 5 minute timer after each vet battle ?
If i play a game without waiting i loose xp as i get more xp per hour when i just wait 5 mins instead playing a game that most likely goes 10-15mins without bonus. It somehow would make sense if there would be a ton of players playing the game to reduce server load, but i doubt that there are so much players.
So in the end all it does is increasing the grind by a senseless timesink at the cost of less players joining the queue. (It's even senseless to force players playing recruit games between as you have all t2 ships anyway leveled to max after a few hours)
I even would understand to have that timer for non premium players to make more money, but that's obviously not the case
