The 13th RaptorKilling planecampers is great, be sure not to mess with the ground pounders, and there is very little chance of some-one ever coming to look you up.. cos.. you cant planecamp and look for a sniper at the same time ;)
I actually just shoot the radar dish with a tank every time Im in the area. About 30% of the time I kill something too. Its not exactly a good spot to hide.

Lol...its about as good a spot as church towers....i love just firing a shot up in those famous sniper spots and get a kill..2 seconds later of course...."Lordbutter is Hacking, theres no way he knew i was there".
Don't forget Bocage! Actually most of the DICE maps can be bad, because they have little or no cover. It turns them into long range rape fests for anyone with a good vantage point. With almost nothing to hide behind, your only chance is to run blindly across the open area towards a vehicle. All this while being targetted by assorted snipers, tanks, artillery and/or planes.
And yet, around the flags, there's ample cover so that if you assault with a tank, you get blowed up (by grenades, too, in the early patches). Man....I still can't believe how a game that started off so arcadey got so much BETTER with this mod. :) I mean, seriously, why the hell did DICE EVER think it was a good idea to blow up tanks with grenades? What, are the tanks basically soup cans with guns or something?
I never played Caen in Vanilla.
Here's another thought, though. Remember DICE's stalingrad? This was one of the worst designed maps in the original game, I thought. Let's take the time to build a big city, full of all sorts of sniper spots, nooks and crannies, cover, etc........And then just put all three of the flags right in a row, separated by about 100 yards each. Yeah, guys. Why'd you bother making the map in widescreen if all the action was going to be in the pan and scan area? Sheesh.
Prohkorovka.. Soviets bail out at German base.. Germans camp Russians (obviously the Germans always win the map).. at the German base the situation is usually the worst.. anyone can grab a tank, or Stug from the back and start wasting the armour one by one.
I consider orel a frequent camping map because when I was playing as the russians, some guy in a stolen T-34 or a panzer either parks into our base or at a repair pad and starts blasting away at whoever spawns. And these people don't give a crap about warnings others give them. They simply ignore the warnings and continue blasting at people. This happened so many times.
kharkov, I always end up on the russian side. My team always get into the worst base-raping situation. There's stukas bombing us destroying the mig-3s, there's a wespe artillery vehicle on top of a hill on the other side of a river bombarding us, there's a panzer in the distance of the base... and the shells start flying. And just when you come out of some shelter you get picked off by a rifle shot. There's like little to no room for maneuver.
the storm, well, when the russians surround the uncappable area you're forced to take cover in the buildings. Can't get out 'cuz of the tanks waiting out there. They could even fire into the building.
If that happens, first thing you do is slap yourself for being on BFE-WaW server.
Is Desert Combat Final considered a notorious spawn raping map/mod?

Why do you play there then? But I agree, Caen is the biggest campfest ever. The Canadians have to fight a PantherD with a friggin Sherman.
