sten gun campers.....

Post by Scuttlebutt555 on Thu Jan 08, 2015 8:41 am

Man, with the increased sten gun power now you have covies in the prone position that just camp away. It gets quite boring when you cant even get out of your spawn. Now 2/3 of the players are covies, it used to be a team of engies, meds and feild ops to complete an objective (a team). Now it is all covert ops, no team work just spam spam spam. 
  just came here to blow a little steam off, just liked it better before .....thats all   Scutt

Still better than the shotgun madness:lol:. Jokes aside though, most spawns offer one or more alternative ways out.I usually use those ways when the spawn is being camped.

other ways out of spawn

I usually agree with you, it does get annoying.  The main time it's a problem though is when teams are stacked, either by number or a bunch of experienced guys against me and a bunch of noobs.  Then that's hard to play.

The best way if you just can't get out of spawn is to go to the map (L), and then choose a different spawn location (so long as there is one available).  Then you can just come up behind the campers and shoot them where they camp.

This topic opens the door to another significant question: Why is spawn killing allowed? "It takes no skill to spawn kill" as I have repeatedly stated during a game where spawn killing is occurring. 

Sitting in wait for the opposition to come through a doorway so that you can raise your personal body-count does not enhance "team-play" which is the unique part of ET's online gaming experience. Once a player becomes familiar with the maps and where both the Axis & Allies spawn, it becomes easy to spawn kill. Is it because some players are just looking at their personal statistics at the end of the game regardless whether their "team" wins?

Why can't we work more as a "team" to complete the objectives of the game, rather than play autonomously without regard to our teammates?

Maps like Base race and the map with flag capture and castles on each end (not shure of map name) are frustrating.
  I agree, I used think the M97 was over powerd, a shotgun blast from the other side of the map and you are dead but the M97 seems to pale in comparison to the super sten gun.
  Oh covie covie the reason Im dead is you....  : )-

When you see a map like Goldrush and there are 5 covies on each side and no engie then the map has just become a frag fest with nobody going for the obj. but the bots that are programmed too. The short re-spawn time has practically taken away the need for a medic.

Increasing the spawn protection time would be good since then anyone wanting to camp has a better chance of getting smoked before the spawner. I've always wondered why some hide in the spawn and try to kill when there is a protection going on and ultimately get killed themselves.

I am one of the people who does this, and it is mainly because I am just too impatient.

This is a trade-off. I recognized that the shotguns were too powerful, and when everyone uses them the server lags a bit. I don't wnat to nerf the shotguns, so cranking up another weapon is a better alternative.

Also there was too much rushing. One pro player with the shotgun can reach the objective very quickly as no one can stop them.

These faster stens reduce the players' dependency on the shotguns, and the long-range camping reduces the rushing somewhat.

yes you can actually just outplay the other team or just go for the obj in a nice group and take it.You can win even 1v5 but you just need to have some brains and not only ammo Very Happy
