You are completely right. It is camping, and it is also defending. However, it was what blue team is supposed to do. Doing anything other than camping is stupid. People who b***h at blue team for camping aren't very smart...

It's Bravo's job to stop Alpha from scoring or taking their flag. The easiest way to do that is to keep them from even getting near the flag by defending choke points. Alpha's challenge is to break apart that defense, while Bravo has to stop or delay them while still keeping their defense strong.

If you're having trouble attacking, remember to keep the alternate routes open for access to the flag. People tend to get pretty jumpy if their flag's missing.

Camping is annoying, yes, but it just makes you feel all the better when you sneak up behind that asshole and steal his flag.

In Australian GA servers no one complains about camping in INF or any game mode for that matter (and those who do are idiots). Anyway, besides for camping what else can Bravo do? If they charge to the White Flag its suddenly "Spawn killing", and if they charge around the map aimlessly not staying at the flag or chokepoints, the game is pointless.

Also, your poll makes no sense...

To camp is to stay in a favourable position and be ready to take out opponents from that position.

The goal of Bravo (blue), the defending team, is to keep the black flag in place so that they score points overtime. The goal of Alpha (red), the attacking team, is to take the black flag and bring it back to the white flag to score a number of points in one shot. Bravo does not get points if the flag is not in its original position.

Therefore, Bravo must prevent Alpha from even reaching the black flag, let alone take it. This is done by slowing down the attackers and maintaining a hold over important positions.

If you are Bravo and you are camping, you are like the watch tower that stops the incoming Alpha players. It is a method of defense, an efficient and common one too, most seen with Barrett-users (eg: on Inf_Moonshine, a sniper may camp on the roof to snipe incoming Alpha players on the top lane).

Spawnkilling is another tactic, but if you are doing that, you should be playing CTF, not INF. Preventing the spawning of your opposition defeats the whole purpose of INF; it's as good as playing Bravo without Alpha and Alpha without Bravo.

And it's called yelling.

Maybe I'm not moderator here but I'm using my common sense.
Back to topic: I can't say I'm not camping at all, it's a part of tactic. ;d When you are defending the flag sometimes you are just forced to camp.

Defending != Camping, in INF its far better to patrol areas as Bravo, and know when to fall-back or attack.

Ever since I was in A*, I learned that in the defense team, everything is defending. There's no excuse of camping when you're in the blue team.
You're clean man.

If it's ctf or other matches, it depends.

Camp =/= Defend, BUT Camp is a method of Defense in INF.

Just to stress that.
