I genuinely have no idea of how is this playstyle camping, i am just baffled, really, my playstyle consists of basically going to the zone with the most enemies are and kill them and yet in this match I have 2 admins watching my every move to tell me how I am camping to the point where I get called out on camping by one admin WHILE TYPING to the other.

I am just curious as to how do you expect me to play? to run all the time to the blank spaces in the map without aiming? to not turn back when the enemy spawn changes just because I would stay in the same half of the map? I really don't get it. I have seen other players play way more conservatively than that and they are regulars who never get called out at least that I have seen.

Anyways, sorry for the rant, but I just got very mad after this game when I got called a camper more than once for staying in the half of the map in wich the enemies where for more than 5 seconds. So please, explain how is this camping.

As i tried to told you in game Yoitsu your playstyle is considered camping.Most of the game you play near the tank in the highest point of the map and you check the banker the entrance of the building and the entrance of the dome.In the game we talked and i was trying to help you understand what i mean.I wasnt there from the beginning.I didnt warn you.A few months ago there was a player called Queenwired who posted a gameplay similar to yours and we told him the same thing.

Whenever I am around the tank area I almost always do the same, I check the 4 entrances to the area(2 bunker, 1 building,1 dome/corridor) and go towards the one that has more enemies, I am not sure you watched the demo because I do it like that all the time, the only time I overstay a bit on the tank area is if I, for instance, enter the bunker to kill 2-3 guys and then their spawn swaps to the building and I go there, a scenario like this was the most time I spent in the tank area on that match and yet I got a warned for camping, twice. I know not everyone has 20 minutes, but I would appreciate it if you pointed the times in where I was camping on that match.

Well, I checked the first 15 minutes of the demo and honestly, I don't see any kind of camping there.
He is constantly on the move and yes, he takes the same route most of the time, but that's neither related to camping nor unusual in the COD-scene. Also, it's not against the rules.
And sure, he doesn't move as quickly as some others, but that's a style of playing. He prefers prefiring and pre-aiming around the corners instead of rushing through the map. I prefer that style as well, in fact, the way I play is not so very different from how he does.

Camping is when you get seated down in the corner with your BigMac and your hardcore machine gun, waiting till those enemies come in your sight. But that is not being done here at all.
As I quote Urban Dictionary:
camping
The Act of staying in one spot in a map in a first person shooter video game to gain a tactical advantage over an enemy or group of enemies.

This guy isn't staying in one spot and thus is not camping.
If he is, then I am as well along with many, many others.

I expected some more replies to be honest.
Kicking/warning Yoitsu for camping when he is playing like this, is in fact wrong as well.

I'm gonna be making some videos and a thread about what is and what is not camping shortly ;)

Since I just watched like 5 demos I didn't watch your demo, but I will agree to Mac becuase he watched the demo and says you were on the run..
Just can say for general cases: You can barely consider someone as a camper if you didn't really spectate him. Just by one killcam, and even not by two killcams, you can't be 100 % sure that someone is camping. It's possible that he's on the spot since 3 seconds and just because you see the enemy in the killcam on a certain spot doesn't mean he's camping. And if you see him in a further killcam on the same spot, it's possible that he already died and went to the same spot and killed you again which doesn't prove he's a camper. He was just at the same spot again and luckily killed the same person.

Remember, mostly you can't be 100 % sure that someone is camping just by watching kill-cams. Many punishments could be wrong if you just judge by killcams.

Well that's why I always say, don't trust your killcam too much.
