Yes those who stand armed to the teeth by the spawn points, all in order to gratify their Frag score... Just getting into the multiplayer and have met a few, and yes it jarrs me. I enjoy the general madness and running round, learning techniques, and watching those who are top of scores, without camping. I wonder if theres anyway the spawn points could be more randomized..ie:spawn anywhere based upon some random generator or something... Anyway, im sure im not alone, and im sure theres others who enjoy *De-Tenting* the campers as much as i do. Enjoy G

random spawning points would make people spawn inside walls/lava:) i hate campers too but theres nothing you can do about them, they will always exist. and, as you said, killing campers is always great fun

Camping is a valid tactic, but if overused, can become a detriment to the player. Although it may be annoying, it is definitely easy to counter.. I would not touch anything for that Smiley

That is when you should throw out all that you think you know about the game and start hunting campers.  It's amazing how quickly they'll leave a server when their favorite campground is suddenly open to attack.

The biggest fun is railing campers while flying around them faster than rocket. Cheesy

just on a no camping server, was nice to see the mod boot one, although i know sometimes you run by a spawn, and ta da... prey, its the weapon spawns and the player spawns that these *types* frequent... So all in all a Not-So happy camper i witnessed...hehe.

That would be dropping to their level of lazyness, or whatever motivates them to stand next to spawns with rocket on auto... Maybe give them their own *Happy Campers* server, Requirements: Camping at spawns only. then they could spend hours waiting for spawns...as that is all they would be doing maybe the game would lose some of its glitter on them, but you never know, But when i get fragged more than once at the same re-spawn then i make a habit of going back and trying till i get them, maybe remind them in chat that theres a whole map out there...hehe.

you want random spawns?

how about simply adding MORE spawns? yes, some maps have only ONE spawn, and it reallly really sucks. I think the name of that map is CBCTF1. it pisses me off. that whole maps should be gone.

as for campers, let them camp. they aren't doing their team a favor. Campers are noobs who dont know how to move; take advantage of that. Know where one is hiding, then gaunt thier ass. strafe jump to approach. sidestep to avoid rockets. my favorite campers are the ones that spam rockets in the base maps, they wont even hit anything lol. in fact, they do a disservice to their team, as they may hit the already wounded flag carrier thats trying to come home, slowing him down to eaisily be picked off by the other team. more than that, they wont go to pick up the flag! they just stand there spamming a short range weapon at long range. It sucks. I hate campers, but only when they are on my team.

They just do. Fact.

CBCTF1 does also only have one respawn point per team in team mode (0.7.1)

I was talking about ctf maps in ctf gametype Wink, as i practically only play ctf/ctf varients. I agree with your point though.

I know that hydronex only has two spawns in dm, iono about any others. It sucks, where you mostly die/kill ppl like this: <person A> tried to invade <person B>'s personal space. wow. nice map. plus, for the one-two ppl who do escape the constant "spawn killing spawn" spree, they just camp to their hearts content, picking anyone else who escapes. that map isnt even playable. not even a little bit. the whole game is absorbed in the spawn point(s).

haha ya, shoot/gaunt em in the face enough times, maybe they'll learn their lesson Smiley

I like to sneak around the rail gun structure in hydronex and gaunt the 2 or 3 campers that like to camp in there. I also sometimes want friendly fire on so i can rocket people just standing on rocket weapon spawn.

sometimes when people camp the rail on ctf4ish i can't help myself from being a bit naughty.
if it's the other team i just kill them. however if it's someone on my team i jump up there, and knock them off the platform with a rocket from behind, most of the times they don't even realize what just happened Smiley

i have this problem in other games, easily countered via rocketing them from a distance (they so absorbed in the spot they camping that they dont see it till its too late)

my problem is when i go online the game goes to loading and says "this map has a low ping" and takes like 3 hours to load and by then im bored of waiting and do sumthing else

EDIT: i was using the version in the ubuntu repos, just so happens that that version is 6
im using the version from getdeb now ( latest version )

If it says this server for low pings only, then you cant get onto that server. perhaps try again. I would not reccomend rocketing from a distance, as there is a chance of them seeing it. I use rockets/plasma to cover my rush towards them, so when the rockets/plasma get near, they move away, messing up thier shot. Then you can easily move close and finish them. another option is just to shoot tehm with a rail gun.
