The camping is getting ridiculous. The complaints are valid. Yes, there will always be campers. I personally blame BO2 for this. So what they had scorestreaks. The maps on BO2 were so damn small they encouraged camping! So, now, we have players who have been trained to camp more so then not. Now people camp because the maps are larger and they're afraid of hurting their stupid KDR stats. I'm more interested in having fun. I couldn't care less about KDR.
I have little faith in Treyarch specifically because of the damage they've done to the COD series with that piece of garbage, BO2.
Yes, you have to get used to the campers. I tolerate campers, but I do not accept them. They are the laziest players of all. The only instances where camping is honest is on Domination or Search and Destroy. Where you're actually defending an objective. To see camping on Kill Confirmed is plain annoying. It makes the different game modes pointless. Why offer anything more then TDM if campers are propagating in every game mode? It's stupid and ridiculous. And camping will bring about the demise of COD if it continues on the level it has reached now. It's never been this bad.
In Treyarchs defense, they were doing pretty much everything people wanted with BO2. People wanted smaller maps. Check. People wanted rewards for playing objectives. Check. People wanted a way to reduce camping (Ghost perk). Check. And i disagree with the "smaller maps encouraging campers" theory, i actually think its exactly the opposite. I thought that the smaller maps actually encouraged run and gun play since people would be easier to find, instead of getting sniped out for running in the open like what has been happening in Ghosts with the larger maps. Im not saying that BO2 was an amazing game by any stretch of the imagination, but at least they tried. I'd rather play BO2 over MW3 ANY day.
I also feel that Ghosts is encouraging camping much more than BO2 did. The stackable killstreaks, the displaying of peoples KDR in the game lobbies, these things are what i feel are causing camping. I do respect your opinion though.
I hate campers too but as I have said on other posts, my definition of a camper may differ from what other peoples' do. And you're right that it's never gonna stop and it shouldn't because I believe that it encourages more strategic gameplay in that you need to be more aware of being out in the open and of the shooting lanes in maps, especially because of the large maps.
