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.

When the other team is so PLANE CRAZY that they cannot hold a flag, I get bored and head to their base. I actually witnessed an enemy tank completely pass a flag where i was hiding.. and he didn't even stop to capture it.

This was of course the same boob screaming no spawn camping. I then told him if he actually got a flag we wouldn't spawn camp.

There was the other instance.. of course.. the sniper no one could find nailing me .5 seconds after spawn OVER AND OVER.. no mater which way I hopped.. skipped or jumped..

It happens.. there are times when its appropriate to MOTIVATE the PLANE SMACKTARDS on the other team to go do something productive, but there are times it can be abused. I do tend to think its generally a lack of skill/teamwork on the other teams part when they get into that situation.

Funny how it usually happens on maps with planes.. hmmmm...

Its a case by case situation that a moderated server will never have a problem with. As far as an auto-kick or auto-mod, well I remember the Lithium mod for Quake 3 would make a bright glow of light around you if you camped. Maybe something of this nature would be appropriate.

I'm just curious if you play on public servers blue.. what is your handle?
