real reason why campers ruin the game.....

I could care less, if you get in a gun fight kill 1-2 guys then wait for 3-4.....or know im gonna come catch me off card wait for me.... work a area of the map, thats fine, but when you just sit in a spot and never move ANYWHERE that ruins the game, cause you know your losing and gonna lose, your teammates don't wanna rush cause your not rushing, so they camp, next thing you know, maps like carbondomemission, last forever, hen they shouldn't cause people are just camping/hiding...... the pace of the game changes ....go play s and D if you wanna waste time or something but not when you respawn 247 at least move....i don't care if you crouch walk or prone CRAWL the whole map MOVE!!!!!

    I agree. Don't you hate it when you get killed by a camper that just looks like he is AFk, like not even moving whatsoever, and as soon as you come round the corner he moves. Then I rage.

    So, wait,,,,  you wrote - "i could care less", so you're saying you could care less, right?

    The people camping have purchased the game just like you did,, dont you think it's up to them how they play the game?, do you believe you have the right to dictate to them (or anyone else) how they should be playing the game?

      • Re: real reason why campers ruin the game.....

        another trolling unicorn, vTc_trolling unicorn change your name homie

         

        my point is "im dying from campers" its the fact that when they camp, they're useless, so the team begins to back up, and or camp, thus slowing game play down.... we go from mw3 to chess....online..

         

        believe me i find ways to kill campers in a very disrespectful way, the last camper i got, which made me write this post about how it affects team play and game play, was camping in a house just sitting there..... after he killed me, i spawn all the way across the map, as soon as i spawned, i pulled out my gun, and aimed where i think he was at in the house, and fired till i got hit marker, i lucked out cause my 1st shot hit him, so i spawmed and killed him....

         

        i don't go after people who kill me/camp me i don't think REVENGE kill is smart..... so i usally just go a different route, cool thing is 8/10 times i usually get behind or next to that same camper like "really your stil here ? k.....(KNIFE)"

    • Re: real reason why campers ruin the game.....

      well i wouldn't mind it, but in this game, you can't punish campers...... thats the only thing i hate, cause your controller, isn't fast enough to check every corner and what not so its annoying, besides this is a community, if the majority says "we don't like you, stay get hated on, live and  adapt..."

       

       

      and read my whole post before responding, i could care less IF......

      • Re: real reason why campers ruin the game.....

        I read all of your "post" and they're all over the map...Homie. I'm hardly trolling. I'm merely telling you to stop your complaining and deal with it, or go play something else.

         

        p.s. Go play SnD or something?

         

        "the pace of the game changes ....go play s and D if you wanna waste time or something but not when you respawn 247 at least move..."

         

        Camping in SnD? 9 out of 10 times someone camping SnD is on Def. and watching their bomb. Perhaps you should RE-read what you're about to post, and make adjustments so you make a tad more sense...

    • Re: real reason why campers ruin the game.....

      The problem with people playing "the way they want to" is that it's still pathetic, nevertheless. Sure, sitting and waiting in fear in a dark corner gets them kills, but who do you really think worked harder for kills? The guy running in and out of cover, engaging the enemy, or the guy who just slows the game's pace down because he needs a good KDR? Pretty obvious, huh?

      Having said that, camping DOES ruin the game, in a way. If someone camps because they suck, n00bs that keep dying to them will get motivated to camp too. CoD is basically a camp fest for killstreaks, nothing more.

      • Re: real reason why campers ruin the game.....

        Dumb thing to say.

         

        I camp the **** out of the objective in both Team Defender and Capture The Flag and guess what? My win loss is pretty damned high because of it.

         

        They can't win  if they can't cap our flag and they can't cap our flag if they can't grab our flag.

         

        Who are you to dictate what's "pathetic" and what's not? I think the morons rushing around the map blindly attempting to cap objectives while just barely pulling 1.0 - 1.60 are trash, but I don't make threads whining about them. And if they're running specialist... they're even more useless.

         

        The truth is everyone paid for their game therefore everyone gets to play whatever damn way they want to play.

         

        Get over yourself.

      • Re: real reason why campers ruin the game.....

        word again!! lol

  • Re: real reason why campers ruin the game.....

    Haha, I got off a game on Hardhat last night, one of a few where the entire enemy team was camping their only flag ( C ) , not kidding, I capped A then expected a gunfight for B, waited a few secs it was like a ghost town, so capped B, expected to hear " you're losing A ", nothing.

     

    After checking A, back to B, set off for C, snuck in, still quiet, checked the menu, 6x enemy, then shot in the back, went back for revenge, got it, then shot in the back by another, turns out all 6 enemies had a camp spot and didn't move all game.

     

    To make it worse half my team were camped the other end of the tunnel. there was no sound of gunfire, no killstreak rewards, no " your losing ", nothing, that was so dull and frustrating trying to get a gunfight as you found one camper and there was another on your back.

     

    Nothing wrong with defending but you've got to try capping, I mean try cmon !!!

    to tgi: I agree that this particular style of play is annoying, but its flawed to think that it ruins the game. Its a subject that continues thriving "thoughts and rants" about it. The truth you cannot change it, it will not change and you will need to do the changing. Now, this game does has moments when the combat changes tempo, and that's a really good thing. Oh and no game last forever, most have timers on it.

    I think campers can ruin objective based games, however in something kill based like TDM or Kill Confirmed they're kind of expected.

     

    If you're playing Domination, its hard to argue that sitting in a corner not near an objective helps the team at all. Sure you're Osprey Gunner/MOAB helps, but you're team is fighting for flags a man down which usually causes them to be double or triple capped by the time you get those killstreaks and the games out of hand.

     

    Camping in objective based games hurts the team, theres really no way around saying that. And if you're sitting in a window over an objective, I don't classify that as camping. Sure, you're not moving, but you're actively defending a flag which I wouldn't consider camping. In order to be a camper, you need to be sitting in an area of the map nowhere near an objective simply playing for kills and thats it.

    Having spent a lot of time running around I have recently started to use the Riot shield.  I only play domination, and I'm finding the best way to use the shield is to cap and sit by the flag.  Too many people rush in and dont look around and I get easy defends that way.  Sure I am camping but honestly, I don't care if it helps win the match.  Complaining about how others play the game is totally pointless, no one is going to change, people do what they want to do, if you dont like it then you will have to find a different game.  I dislike quick scopers but I dont moan about them, I just accept they are part of the game and get on with it.

    Its not the camping i am angered with.. its the lag that enables them to kill you.

  • Re: real reason why campers ruin the game.....

    Maybe it's just me but i dont really come across campers that often, unless they're sniping. I n which case i dont really mind cause they are sniping and snipers arent meant to run around a lot.

    An 99.9 percent of the campers these days are using the portable radar!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Believe me or not, before bo an mw3 there were less campers, much less. Now dont get me wrong all the callofduty series has had there share of campers, but ever since the idiot who decided to put  portable radar into the game completely ruined it for me. It makes those who didn camp before, now camp just because of that stupid device. The 3 killstreak radar was enough, u had to earn it. Now campers are just handed a none stop radar, bullshizzzz if u ask me. Hell why dont they just go ahead an make a permanent radar for everyone an screw the game more. The portable radar should be a killstreak or not in the game at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Re: real reason why campers ruin the game.....

      The reason i dont like camping is becuase it really does slow the pace of the came down. You have 3 out of 6 people on a team camping, it really makes it boring.

       

      I really dont like it when im on a team with campers, when the other team isnt camping. That means i have 6 people running around chasing me down and 2 others down while there are six guys with shotguns and ARs gunning to kill me.

       

      Alot of these games are based on cooperation with your team. Communication is key. When i play dropzone with a team full of my friends, who all know how to play, we destroy everything, we stick together and we mow down everything in our path on the way to the dropzone. Sticking together and working together is very important both on this game and real life military operations, and when you have 2 or more people on your team that just sits there like a bump on a log and waits for someone to walk infront of them, it really ruins the game for people trying to have fun.

       

      When i first tried playing, i sucked, so i tried camping for a little while, and it was the most boring **** ive every done on a video game. Id rather play galaga or pac man. I honestly dont know how so many people do it.

        Our clan mainly camps. We win games pretty big too when running together.   Matter of fact, a dude told us "camping is cheating" earlier today and was going to report us.   I mean he was so mad he was stuttering.  I mean, we've played together since the first COD, and its the same thing.  Hold a side and communicate.  I dont know how thats cheating. 

         

        And another side fact....going 13-18 isnt better than the guy who went 12-1.  You got more points sure, but your deaths hurt your team more than mine did.

         

         

        I only play HCTDM by the way...

    • Re: real reason why campers ruin the game.....

      i have to agree on that and its soooo true that there is more campers then before....when i was playing BO yeah sure i was complaning some times to times about lil girls camping but not like in mw3 hell no its too much

    Another camper moaning thread,really come on, we all camp in some way or other,think about it.

    Plant the bomb and camp it,use a predator,reaper,sniping,reloading,securing flags etc etc. Those are all things we do that causes us to stop moving so by definition they are also camping. Real truth is that because not everyone wants to run around like a headless chicken these guys get annoyed. Its a war game folks, camping happens in real life and in  virtual life as well,and has and always will be part of FPS games. Get over it please.

    These moaners say that they own campers,then if your so good against them,why complain? Corner check,flash,stun, etc etc. Hardcore campers are so dependable and go to the same old hiding places. so just accept that my £44.99 spent enables me to play whatever way i want as it affords you that same right. Have a nice day :-)

    • Re: real reason why campers ruin the game.....

      ah cmon now are you serious about '' predator,reaper,sniping,reloading,securing flags etc etc. Those are all things we do that causes us to stop moving so by definition they are also camping. '' did you really wrote that man??? wow you are making no sense whats so ever.....that is some '' normal '' action we need to do cmon wtf are you talking about, we talk about the playing ADS!!!!! in a corner not MOVING AT ALL ( which we clearly see on the kill cam )...so lets try this, next game you play try not to do everything you mentioned see it its making sense.........wow

          I have had debates with rushers who would try and tell you that unless you are moving then you're camping. Of course i don't believe those things i mentioned to be camping(apart from sniping which IS camping by definition). For me also its ADS waiting on a kill,but i was using the things i mentioned to show how some rushers contradict themselves by saying that anything other than moving is camping. Maybe i could have worded it better but my point is that patrolling,tactical playing etc is NOT camping.

    i would love to see how a game session would go with strickly campers, straight make up playlist that are only populated with campers, FFA and Dom end results of game would be tied straight across the board i bet. That would be so funny. Any campers in here wana respond to this idea?
