Does Spawn Trapping make your clan good?

So i recently left a clan because all they did was spawn trap on blitz to get good K/Ds and K.E.Ms. They would mostly play randoms but occasionally play clans. Everyone had a 2.0 k/d and an average of 20+ kills per game. Does this make them good? Ive also seen a bunch of other clans just solely play blitz and spawn trap and then after the game they talk about how good they are, along with other trash talk. So my main point is when you have a full party of 6 and you dominate a party of randoms does that make you and your clan good? Explain.

Spawntrapping is nothing more than exploiting an unavoidable flaw in the game. How much skill does it take to shoot someone who has no option but to spawn inside your crosshairs?

It's not hard to spawntrap, especially if you have a full party. If the other team is full of randoms then you're basically guaranteed easy kills because randoms can't organize.

Especially in this game, spawning is broken and the spawns offer no safety. They're mostly just open spaces and the surrounding area is nothing but cover and great vantage points.

In other words, if you spawntrap you're not doing anything special or noteworthy.

if you are spawn trapping you are controlling the map. Since when did map control become frowned upon?

Re: Does Spawn Trapping make your clan good?

When you manipulate spawns to allow for easy kills leaving the enemy defenseless it's no longer map control. Spawntrapping has been declared by the developers as illegal. It's one thing to hold two flags and defend them. It's another thing to cap two flags and sit right outside of a spawn killing the other team without allowing them a chance to defend themselves. Look at the spawn traps on Terminal and try to defend those guys who are getting 300 kills.

spawn trapping has been happening in basically every fps, ever. If you are good enough to take the 2 points right off the bat, kill the rest of the team, and then get in an set up before they can break back out, it's fine. If you don't want to get spawn trapped don't play with randoms

Spawn trapping is completely fair.  Don't listen to 'ghamorra', he is just trying to guilt trip you into not spawn trapping because he can't break out of a spawn trap.

No. Just no. Spawn trapping is one of the most twattish things you can do in a game.

If you are trapping them in an area then it is map control.

Please provide some valid proof of this.


It's one thing to hold two flags and defend them.


Again haven't you heard of the saying "a good offense is a good defense"?  If you push up just to the point where spawns and protecting their exit routes of the spawn then that is a good offense providing defense for their flags.

Spawn killing is completely different than spawn trapping.  Spawn killing would involve an instance where you are looking at a spawn point before someone spawns and killing them right before they spawn.  Again if this is against the rules then why didn't I get banned on BO2 for it?


Look at the spawn traps on Terminal and try to defend those guys who are getting 300 kills.


You know MANY of those videos on YT are set up?  They have 1-6 dummy accounts.  This is cheating.

Again if there are no dummy accounts involved it is not cheating.
