Out of the Blue

I've seen in-game debates about spawn-camping in Battlefield 1942, and whether or not it's a legitimate tactic, or even whether such a thing can be even considered to exist. These debates combined with server messages I've seen ranging from those that forbid such incursions to those that suggest that there's no such thing as spawn-camping have inspired some curiosity to see if other BF1942 players had opinions to share on this subject. I've always considered it poor form to rush the other team's non-takeable base, but I do have to admit that with nothing designed into the game to prevent it whatsoever, it seems hard to make much of a case against it. I'm especially curious to know if the designers at DICE have ever sounded-off on this topic.

Creamy-- I think we are all there to have fun. Granted, some are more competitive than others. I will admit, I yell out "TEAMS?" only when the other team has twice (x2) as many people or more. I don't expect it to be even. (Hell, I like it when the other team has more people because that means I will get to see more action.) But let's be honest man, it is not fun to play a game where the other team has twice as many people and they are base-camping your spawn point. When that happens I just leave and try to find another server.

BTW anyone know of any good BF1942:SW servers? I try to play on :iCe:House because there is normally an admin online but they are currently running the DC mod, and well, we already know how I feel about that...

the best part about life is knowing you put it together
