What is the purpose of the cool down timer?

Other than to waste an hour of my gas booster, and for that matter the money that I paid for it?

Model edit: watch your language.

    Because they want people to stay in the game longer, playing other modes and spending more money! If we all tap out in the challenge in a day, we wouldn’t spend money on fuel!

    I literally did the entire challenge in one day (about 12 hours) on a gas booster, earning 6 round passes, last week. And that was with the cooldown. Can you imagine if I didn't have it, how fast it would have gone?

    I hate cool down timer. There is no cool down time or free time on zombie apocalypses.

    Another cheap money grab tactic.

    quoting myself from another thread:

    the countdown timer shall remind you of your real life and other things you might have to do except playing an addictive mobile game ;)

    I always thought it was a warning my phone was getting too hot :#

    Puts me off buying gas boosters, usually when I get the cool downs I have run out of gas anyway
