Rule clarification - spawn camping

7 posts in this topic

Hi there,

 

As some of you know, I spend a lot of time on your server. I think I'm up to about 300 visits now. I do my best to follow your rules to the best of my abilities, and try to own up when I inadvertently break one ("sorry for hip").

 

However, the spawn camping rule seems to be an area that occasionally results in confusion. I hate being spawn camped as much as the next guy, and have frequently asked people to stop when I'm the victim of it. I'm also aware that I've often inadvertently killed people just after they've spawned, and been accused of spawn camping. It's the nature of the game that sometimes you'll turn a corner, see someone and kill them, not knowing they just spawned.

 

Yesterday, I received a stern warning from Crossfire for spawn camping. It's funny as it always seems to be Crossfire when it comes to my being warned for spawn camping. I sincerely believe I was well within the rules, Crossfire was adamant that I was not. We've butted heads over the issue a few times now, and I'd like to clear the air and relieve the tension it's created between Crossfire and I.

 

My hope is that members here can review the map from both my perspective and Crossfire's, and clarify whether I was in violation of the rules.

 

If I was indeed in violation, the explanation of how will help me avoid the action in the future.

 

The map in question was Array 9/7/2011 at 14:36. For time reference, the disputed play comes after my spawn at approximately 7:45.

 

Thanks,

I will get the Sheriffs dept to look into your query

 

 

But the OFFICIAL ruling on spawn killing is this..

 

Spawn KILLING is allowed.Spawn CAMPING IS NOT.

If you are pushing the spawn and someone pops up in front of you, blast away but make sure you keep moving thru the spawn trying to flip it

 

Spawn Camping is a definite no no..

Sitting back outside the spawn and picking people off as they appear on your screen is a violation of our rules .Camping "choke points" is allowed, if you get killed in the same spot 3 times in a row, try using smoke or a different exit.

Camping in your OWN spawn is allowed, but once the spawn flips and the enemy starts spawning in your area , it is no longer consider YOUR spawn so you will need to move or be called out for spawn camping.

 

That being said, the game itself has horrendous spawn points and folks are gonna die at spawn and they're just gonna have to deal with that fact

Thanks Cappy. The rules you referenced are the ones that I try to play by, and I believe that the video evidence will support that.

 

I wouldn't have even bothered posting, but it's come up enough times with the same admin that I just wanted to clear the air once and for all.

simple solution.: come and play world ar war with us and have some fun,,, a place where you hardly hear the same old whingers who complain about hip firing ,, spawn killing etc.., and yet they them selves have sometimes done the pre mentioned offences.gets tiring when you hear it constantly in game.. and the funny thing is its never much brought up in game by the players who have low scores..........................
