You talkin to me? no, i didnt, as i am just another player there. and it was just a kick.

and beep is right. most decent-good players can eliminate most campers in short order. but the best camper ever is Wonko The Sane. period. end of discussion.

In one case, a certain noted individual at a certain noted server spent an hour and a half hunting me and me alone with a pair of wings. I call that harassment, because I went to that server to play a game with everyone, not spend the entire time dueling the one dude with a superflag.
Yeah, one-time campers aren't a big deal- everyone is going to camp when they grab a laser or GM. it's the ones who flag shop and do the same thing over and over, or who use a select few cheap camping tactics repeatedly. Harmless is a texbook example of the latter.

lol +10 club of banning, yes i hate campers. i wish louman would make a non camping version on lasermania, you know square walls or somthing.
Sniping is not camping. on lasermania, everyone has laser and is somewhat equally exposed- while it is harder to unseat a dug-in sniper who's really low on the wall, it can usually be done with only a few attempts, or with a stealth flag. a good team has roughly 40% defensive/offensive snipers, 40% offensive CTFers, and 20% base defense.

The real camping problems at lasermania are the stupid GM in the towers and spawn camping- be it shooting at the other base from afar along the edge, or getting up close with ST.

Besides, if the walls at lasermania were vertical, rico would be quite a problem. :p
Optimism is just a milder alternative to denial.

what do you mean? you can express feelings. :)

L4m3r
well, that can only be taken sofar :) i hate the people that spawn camp near our base, they sit there and wait for someone to spawn and kill and it continues.and with the camping on the second lvl it is bad if that is all a team doesn or they sit there almost totally down and sit there forever!
and yes i hate campers that grab a gm or somthing and go to the same place.

yes, thats true, he could at least make one covered conveyor so we can get to the other side....

I'll agree with that. People who only use GM or only use WG can get annoying. But conversely when people get killed by regular people with these flags then get all bent out of shape and say like "Wings ruins Bz" " I hate GM." That can get annoying too.

Eagle is doing the "Bold thing" so that he can direct certain parts of his post to certain people.

Whats your problem with it?

I take the position that campers are just another target. Yes, there are strong positions on every map, but I have never found it impossible to unseat a camper. It can be difficult, but I look at it as a challenge.

They don't really spoil the game. In any war, the objective is to gain a strong position and hold it. That is a basic tenant of military tactics. Sure this isnt a "military" game, it is a combat game. Camping is a valid and unavoidable tactic.

i agree. this is a fun game and by camping one can have the most fun. a server owner can always implement anti-camp measures (like worldweapon after teamscore on a ctf server, or exclude a power flag on a particular map) in case it gets annoying. other than that i don't see why people whine so much about campers. there is always a good flag to nail a camper. just find them and use them wisely.

well, a n00b can't camp for a long time without getting killed. in other words a n00b can't really become a camper. camping is 'the' most effective way to get a high score if you're 'not' a n00b. besides, all the prolific campers i have seen so far have been pretty good on the ground too.

Camping is an effective technique to get a high score relatively quickly. I see nothing wrong with it. I personally see nothing wrong with camping, so why are you guys bickering about it?

Jeff, how is this league-related?
