I'm with you on that war zone mentality. The fist thing I do when I spawn is try to find some cover to reconnoiter my surroundings. And I am tired of getting called a camper just because I'm moving around in the shadows and not out in the open. I was following a rushing teammate yesterday, and he got blasted running through a door. I ducked in a corner and waited for the assassin to come through the door, and when I killed the little squeaker I got called at $%*)& camper.
In short, my opinion is that any yahoo that runs around in the open thinks everybody else is a camper, and a lot of people think if they don't see their assailant that he must be a camper. It's a subjective assessment.
I don't think many would consider moving around in shadows to be camping. Pretty much the consensus is if you're sitting or laying in a corner for more than a few minutes is equivalent to camping. If those shadows are a 25 square foot area like you never leave a room - yes that'd be camping. A lot of the times people get called campers even though they didn't see the "camper" just getting there to kill him. Just have to laugh those off.
I don't think your last paragraph is accurate. Most everyone I know and play with disagree with that. I could say the same sort of thing...anyone who is defending camping that means they are a camper too. But that's probably not accurate as well.
I am not defending nor condemning camping, or for that matter any other type of gameplay. I play the game to have fun. My point is that any one persons opinion on the matter is subjective, at least to others.
But I would like to be able to leave my chat on without having to listen to the incessant griping about campers, wiimoters, gun choice, etc.. Just play the game however you want (short of boosting or hacking).
Yeah, but it isn't just one person's opinion...the overwhelming consensus is that this game supports and promotes camping...it's common sense, really. I knew it would happen once I saw the maps - they are a campers wet dream. The only people who complain about people complaining (LOL) about campers...are campers. Yes, this game takes a lot slower and strategic approach...but that slow? My one point that I've always made is what if everyone camped? What kind of game would that be? I played one lobby a few days ago that had NOTHING but scared campers on the other team. So we all decided to camp just to prove a point. The high score was 19.
It is one person's opinion. So what, so is yours. And I am not so much complaining about complaining, as much as I am complaining that they are only complaining. Is that enough complaining? Good. Now can we just all try to get along?
These ducks get on my nerves.....I'll feed them the burnt remains of my MW3 disc.
@MAGNUM If Pauly goes into your match and tries to piss you off, just start saying that David Cameron is a very nice man and a great politician.
