While playing COD MW2 i often get abusive msg's from people... often swearing at me and calling me names like gay etc... All of this seems to be
based around my tactics...
Now before anyone flames me for admitting to this apparently "dirty, cheating tactic"... Consider this...
When i play computer games i play it not to rack up statistics... I play it for escapism... I like to immerse myself in another world for a few hours
(yeah i know, sad for a 37 year old) But, for a couple of hours in the evening i am a fully trained commando
I sneak around the map... find a good spot... and wait to ambush the bad guys!
What’s so bad about that??? It is NOT breaking any rules of the game!! It is NOT exploiting any glitches or using any form of software cheat!!!
It IS applying some realism to the game... To these people, who scream “camping fag" when i slot them for the fourth time, do you honestly think
that in the real world solders run around like Usain Bolt on Amphetamines with a shotgun in each hand?
Personally i hate the "run around like headless chicken while jumping constantly" players... but i don’t yell abuse at them!!! Nor do i notice
others yelling abuse at them.
So why do i get it??
And if these people would calm down a little and apply some logic... they would soon work out how to get me... Just lob a grenade... or snipe me from
a distance... maybe even come at me from a different direction... But don’t come charging down the same corridor for the fourth time and then cry
like a baby when i slot you, again!!!
I paid my £45 for the game... surely no one has the right to tell me how to play MY game!!! Especially when i am NOT cheating!!!
So... what are your thoughts on this? Do you hate campers? If so why? And do you send them abusive msg’s?
I would very much like to know the thought process behind this!
Edit to say...
I am not talking about Spawn camping that you used to get in games such as BF1942 which is widely considered to be exploiting the game mechanics!!
