Camping isn't illegal in the world of soldat. It's fine.

Wrong section, but uh, camping is a legal and fair tactic.
Any tactic is a valid tactic if it works no matter how cheap and easy it may be.

Yes, it's fine.

I agree. Besides, camping encourages teamplaying, if you ask me, so I think it's great. I don't camp much myself, but like to every once in a while. Also, I like arguing with the morons who start whining about it.

Camping for President!!!!

This is true. As much as I loathe being killed right at the enemy flag by some surprise box camper, it forces you to rely that information to the team and hope that you can get a small group to swarm the camper and make it away with the flag. Camping can be frustrating, especially when dealing with multiple flag campers, but it's fine.

Hmmm, campers irritate me to no end, but you have to learn to deal with it, like 13579 said, camping is a real life tactic, so all you n00bs who won't stop whining about campers...GO TOUCH YOURSELVES!

I don't understand what's wrong with camping.

If someone is camping and preventing you from capturing the flag, then take another route (unless the map only has a 1-way-route). Simple as that.


So yeah, camping should be allowed in any game.

Yes, but if someone camps, he's likely losing the game for his team, as it is one of the worst possible tactics you can do :)

So doing a goalkeeper's job is bad? Camping is just 100% defending. Good camper (sniper if you prefer) can defend letting his whole team to focus on capturing enemy flag so basically it can be even called a teamwork ;p

If by high profile matches you mean clanwars, You'll be surprised by how little camping is done there.

It's usually a tactic which leads to a defeat, which Demonic said.

Everyone can focus on capturing the flag and there's more probability of success?

Plus Goalkeepers don't respawn when the attackers with the ball pass them.

I do something like that. If there is a spot where campers are prone, i bust out my trust socom and if they bleed I kill them. So yes, it is a fair tactic.

But no one will defend than. Yes, there is more propability for your team to capture but so is for the opposite team..

Basically, in clan wars, defending is done by the players who respawn. I mean, if an attacker gets in your base, he probably killed someone. By the time he reaches the base, that someone respawns.

Then again, there are sneaks like me who hide in a bush, wait until the base is leaved undefended, and then run for the flag while my -respawning- teammates kill off the attackers.
