Lee'Mon: How do I camp thee? Let me count the frags...
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...
Subject: nm- camping is just a tactic, besides campers never win so who cares
Lee'Mon: Guess he said it all.
"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
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
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...

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.

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.

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?
