You do lose something when you die. The gold and XP you would of potentially got if you hand't of got killed.
For examle, if mid gets ganked by a rabid shaco 3 times in a row, their team just lost their mid carry
I love how you said 10 sec respawn time. It isn't like being down a player for more than a minute ingame is almost a loss nah can't be it.
