What do you peeps think of spawn-camping in games (mostly First-Person Shooters like Quake III, etc). Is it a cheap tactic used by noobs OR something that should be accepted as part of the game?

Personally, I feel spawn-camping is legit and should be accepted, though it should not be over-used in certain situations.

I have fun killing spawn campers:D

I think it's lame but at the same time ok I mean I understand wanting to get points but I always have played game for fun so I see no need to spawn camp....

It is and it isn't. Like in BF 1942 and you have one spawn location left with two possible points all an engineer has to do in lay some explosives around and wait for the spawn. Get anywhere between 5-10 kills that way and people have to try and live.

If you just happen to be there while someone spawns that is okay but I would say I don't appreciate it if that is all someone does to get kills. If they are a good player and do this occassionally I don't mind.

I will still be pissed but it is a game.

I don't think there should be such strict rules when playing games like these, players should be free to use any tactics they deem as useful, as long as there's no cheating. It is as much a tactic as the run-around-guns-blazing method.

I love spawn camping in games where they can't do **** like operation flashpoint...

Each to their own I reckon...

Although the force choke/pushers on the Nar Shadaa level in JK2 were testing my patience.

I always use force chock/push/pull whenever I have the chance. I really don't care if someone calls me a <insert> whore. I suck and I need all the leverage I can get.

In the best mod for Half-Life The Specialists (http://www.specialistsmod.net/) it has more htan 1 spawn point. And it has a 2 second spawn protection. Mods like this make things better. I.E. More htan 1 spawn point for the whole team.

It depends how severe they are doing it, doing it to noise up your friend is one thing but trying to win the game like that is a straight no-no.
Come on man, how low can you get (unless it's for fun).

I accept it as part of the game. Hey, if they want to, go for it. IMHO, it's a bit lame, but they're winning, aren't they?

You've made that quite apparent :p

And if you're going to be a grip whore, at least know it's Force Grip :D
