PQ Mailbag

Demonwench Camps The Mailbag!

Lee'Mon: Yep, you heard me right. Demonwench has decided to camp the Mailbag. She's decided the easiest way to earn points is to frag the denizens of The Third Page. That, and the fact that the Quad Damage respawns here every 120 seconds.

Demonwench: Show yer faces!! I dare ye!! *Blam* Got one, yay! Y'all are really making this week's Mailbag an interesting one indeed.

There were a lot of responses to the nice and shiny new Rant and Raves section this week. I've heard more about camping than I thought possible. It's very possible that my brain has melted... Guess I'll fit right in along with the rest of the crew!

Lee'Mon: Touche. At any rate, you had plenty to say about the RnR feature, so let's pose the question:

To Camp, Or Not To Camp?

Lee'Mon: How do I camp thee? Let me count the frags...

From: David
Subject: Rants n Raves Camping

My personnaly thoughts on camping are that it adds to the diversity of the Quake community. Sure I'll admit at times I want to play a camp free game, and I have had such oppurtunities many time. But there are also times when I don't mind a guy taking cheap shots at me, "That that does not kill me makes me stronger", and camping isn't really killing anyone, so it can only be a good thing for the entire community.

Demonwench: A friend of mine added something which I enjoy to that saying, "That which kills you makes you dead." This is a good point, but in Quake you respwan anyway so you can just go and have more fun.

Lee'Mon: That which kills me better have a running head start...

Lee'Mon: Guess he said it all.

From: -Hellfist-
Subject: Camping

"All things in moderation". -somebody (probably)-

My $0.02 says that there is no moral wrong to camping. Whether it's for just enough time to get your score back up to par with everyone else, to keep someone's dirty mitts off the BFG (darn, dirty, stinkin', rotten, BFG, babies), or to just play it safe. Camping is just another strategy of the game. However...

I think the greater skill lies in being able to face your opponent on equal ground and kick his arse. It would be a sad waste of a remarkable game if the player never gained an appreciation for the speed at which this beauty can play, and that respect can only be gained by going balls-(or whatever anatomy you choose)-to-the-wall with another psycho. If all you want to do is camp play Counter-Strike.

In short...Camping has its place, as do all things, but I think the serious Quaker will go further in the game if they learn how to stay alive while moving.

Lee'Mon: That's the thing I've noticed most of all... almost everyone has something else they hate worse than camping, even if it's the excessive cries of camping. Quake takes some flak (mostly from UT fans) for being too "twitchy." If letting those people camp is what it takes to get them to play Quake, then I'm all for allowing it. But as I said before, don't let it be all that you do. There's usually better ways to get frags in the long run.

Demonwench: I've mentioned I was a newbie, haven't I? Well, I am, but I've seen quite a few guys run amok in the maps. And, I must say this guy has a point. The guys are always moving and we all know that a moving target is a lot harder to hit than a stationary one. Me, I'm still trying to learn how to shoot in one direction and run in another. And since I don't have balls, I'd have to go with butting heads "with another psycho." ;-)

Lee'Mon: Remember folks, when going balls to the wall, it's best to use someone else's balls. And now, on a slightly more humorous note...

Subject: camping

On a funny note: Have you ever been waiting on your turn in 1 on 1 game and had to watch two campers "duel"? Funny stuff. Thats when the "looser Camper" spam really starts to fly.... from the players in line. Revrend Poe

From: Soul Colossus
Subject: camping is apart of the freaking game

would you call it camping if you were chasin' my butt down a corridore with a RL and all i had was a tiny winy SG and i started losing you because of my m4d manovering skillz and i opened a door and ran through it, and it closed behind me and i waited right next to it and when you ran through i unleashed the power of my buckshot into your sorry ass? camping or strategy?

Demonwench: I vote strategy. Only a true loser would whine about camping in that situation.

Lee'Mon: That, or namby-pamby wussy little fruitbats.

From: ED209
Subject: Camping And Anti-Camping

camping is an art, you should try CS

Lee'Mon: I've played Counter-Strike. Let me put it this way. Armpit farting is an art too, but that doesn't stop it from being boring and monotonous, as well as something I don't recommend in large doses. The same goes for excessive camping.

Demonwench: I haven't played CS, so...uh...I hate armpit farting?
