I say yes campers do exsist, but there are two kinds in my mind.
the one that will camp near the object or cover it to help the team win/fight to win.
second: the ones that camp in a coner of the map that can't help their team win because the object is at the other side of the map and they have gone 2-20.
I don't mind campers as long as they are helping their team, not just sitting in a coner doing nothing.
First, let's classify a camper as someone who will place themselves in a strategic position and wait for an extended period of time until a target enters his field of view. I think we can all agree this is a camper. I think we can also all agree that a camper is not someone who takes cover momentarily to kill an oncoming enemy.
Mr. BeastlyDude, I agree with your classification of a "Camper" but I also think that game mode should be included in your definition. Someone who does the above in a game mode such as TDM, KC, or FFA could definitely be classified as a "Camper". But a person doing the same thing but playing in CTF, DOM, HQ, or any other game mode that requires an objective to be defended should be classified as a "Defender" since their job would be to Defend. There are flags in some of these game modes that provide instructions while playing. For instance on CTF your flag says Defend and the enemy's flag says to Capture on your screen. Just a thought. Good Post!
nope I said I play WITH not AS a camper
I have seen him for extended periods of time ADS on turbine out the slope side door (in excess of 45 seconds)
I usually play with between 2-4 other people (75% of the time) and everyone has a mic. So usually campers are dealt with by the time I respawn back in. So the revenge kill feed is 100% my fault and 90% when playing alone.
We have all seen the highjacked camp like a pro video and I have seen similar strategies used on Yemen to hold the fruit stand spawn the entire game
They are real either because we made them with our rush a defended point mentality, or there are items in the game to promote that play style, or people are OK going 4-1 to protect their precious KDR
Don't matter to me, I'm gonna crack another beer and go find another lobby after the game.
