General TaskeenNo, it's all about getting points when spawncamping, so the spawncampers can see their name on the top 3.

We were playing together the other night, Kharkov was the map. I was Allie for most of the game, We captured all the flags and I was the 1st one to enter the axis base. Taskeen was axis the entire game. I got killed while trying to steal one of the axis tanks, I came back, with about 4 other T-34s, with mine. The axis were sceaming at us the entire time, I couldnt stop laughing, it was so funny :lol: . Taskeen wasnt to happy about it either. Sooooo, I switched to axis, and started my anti camping tactics. I go engi, and now 2 of the T-34s were inside the axis base. One guy with a faust toasted one, and I expacked the other. I also shot about 5 allie idiots running out in the open. We were all holed up in the Barn there, lol it was fun. But we went down fighting, and I only died 2 times in the last 10-15mins of the game. I think being camped sometimes adds a bit more chalange, just as long as they arent sitting ontop of the spawn to mow ya down as soon as you appear. I think it has to do alot with if ppl are having fun or not. Thats imo (humble one 2).

I hated that so much... but, my point being is that I went out and captured those flags. Why? Because the allies were to busy not defending their flags. In the end, spawncamping an UNCAPTUREABLE BASE (I hope I emphasized that enough) IS retarded and you will never see me doing it.

The next time the map came in rotation, I defended the north bridge the entire round. Allies did not know where I was hiding my tank (they kept thinking the flag was undefended and that all axis were hiding in the trees near the allied base).

If you've lost to the point where you -can- be spawncamped, you probably deserve it. ;)

spawn camping is hard to stop if you only have short range panzerfausts

You can always outsmart a tank if you think correctly. Iv'e always been able to somehow sneek around and putting them out of business. It's based on 2 things: sneeky level of yourself and patience. Most spawn campers often role too far in to a base when people decide to hide from the enemy fire so that they (the spawncampers) can get even more kills. And that's what's kills them: greed. they drive further in and when that happens you can easely outflank them. and it's even easier if you have panzershrecks.

As i stated above, spawncamping can even buy you a loss sometimes :deal:

I don't believe that killing people as soon as they spawn just to get a high score is right, but I do think it's OK to attack their main base (preferably shelling the base with artillery or bombing it, so they have the chance to escape) when your team has taken all the flags. I like to distinguish the two by calling the former 'spawncamping' and the latter 'base suppression'. BTW, Taskeen, do you frequent the XWA Upgrade boards?
