What?!?! OUTRAGEOUS, SIR. HOW DARE YOU.
This is the sort of response I’m expecting from gamers in relation to the title, how dare I point out something so obvious. How dare I even suggest such a notion?
The funny part about the whole “campers ruin game play” is the fact that people cry foul when a game is not “realistic enough” and I have even seen claims made by people stating that campers should not be allowed in games, that camping should be made as difficult as possible because it spoils all the fun.
Well, I have some news for you. You’re wrong. You’re totally wrong and also MISSING THE POINT.
What would I do if I was at war? Send my BEST snipers out on the field under cover where they can minimise casualties to MY troops and take out the opposing force as much as they can before I send troops to potential deadly situations.
THIS IS WAR.
Indeed, you scream for “realistic combat” yet these “campers” who “spoil the game” for you are, in fact, PLAYING the game how they want. They are using VANTAGE POINTS to minimise their own deaths in order to defeat the enemy.
YOU PAY, YOU PLAY.
Don’t like campers? That’s fine.....Don’t buy the game. Don’t play the game. There will always be campers/snipers in games that are made to recreate battle simulated combat.
CAMPERS ARE DIFFERENT TO SNIPERS.
How so? Different weapons? Sure. But I for one would do the same in a battle, I would sit and wait. Quiet as a mouse, take my time. Bide my time. Wait for the best moment to put someone on ice with minimal risk to myself, especially if I knew it was a path frequented by the opposing army so I could knock them out one by one.
This is why armed forces have co-ordinated attacks and special sniper squads.
As yourself one question, would you be a camper IRL if you thought you could survive that little bit longer?
