'Camping' is such an insignificant and insensitive concept. Apparently, "No One Likes A Camper", but 'camper' can very often be mixed up with 'sniping'. Some people just prefer to sit on a shadowy edge overlooking the flag, sniping anyone that comes in range of it. However, if someone is just standing there and watching the game go on and not assisting one bit (or very infrequently), THAT is camping. Camping=Laziness and no/little participation in the game. Sniping=Defensive position. Hides in a remote area and kills enemies by shooting them from afar. This falls into 'common sense' category. Sniping, if you are very talented, can be VERY useful to the team, sometimes even more useful than getting the flag! Scenario: You are on blue team, and red team is being particularily aggresive. While your team is running towards the Red's flag, the Red is stealthily sneaking to your base constantly and stealing your flag. As you are flying to one side of the arena towards the other team's flag, you leave your own base unprotected to attackers. (EXAMPLE: In many games (in real life), there is an offense and a defense. The offense tries to score, while the defense protects its base from the opponents. Win-Win scenario.) To defend your base, instead of standing out in the open, it would be plain common sense to post several snipers around your base to prevnet opponents from stealing your flag. This would create a Win-Win scenario for your team--get some extra points for the snipers, AND score points by capturing Red's flag. If anyone disagrees, please post their ideas AND a reason. Thanks

Camping is just defending... if you like staring at the flag, go for it, but it only works against noobs anyway...

i agree. camping and sniping are two very different things. seeing as how you cant move while in zoom, how are u not supposed to 'camp' when sniping. i hate those campers tho, they camp the spawn points and superweapons, like rockets and other things

It's some kind of glitch. I posted that in the CoD clan section and bookmarked the thread, but when I click the bookmark it goes here and under someone elses name

I'm going to take your word on that one. I'll delete it, so why don't you go post it back in CoD and see if it shows up there this time? :)

If you're lazy and don't want to re-write it, let me know and I'll PM the contents to you.
