Since Core TDM is where the majority of players has been over all of the COD series, this is what I'd like to discuss.
Cool Story- I am old. I attribute my good shooting skills and keen sense for survival on the amount of hours playing Rainbow 6, Black arrow, Vegas 1 +2. When you died, it was a bad thing, cause you had to sit in the lobby and watch your teammates do dumb stuff, and you couldnt communicate with them. The maps were enormous, colorful, and you had to aim your gun, and be precise. You couldnt shoot through metal walls, your guy wasnt an olympic sprinter, there were no kill streaks.
When the COD series came out I was a huge fan. When COD4 came out I was torn from leaving Rainbow. The engine COD runs on though was awesome and your character felt smooth when he ran. You still had to aim, and killstreaks were fun and simple. I was torn on the respawn thing as immediately you didnt care about dying as much. There was no sense of fear that made rainbow great. Now there is SnD, and I do like it, but the bomb thing has always put me off a bit, so its not the same. There is that similar feeling though you get in SnD to rainbows games, when youre the last man standing. People are all counting on you. Anyone that has ever played real paintball knows what this adrenaline rush feels like when you know if you get hit, youre over.
This is my problem with the people that dont like campers. They dont understand that like in paintball, like in the rainbow series, like in SnD, there are so many of us that play this game like we are pretending we are in a realistic war. We dont want to be mindless and just run spray and pray. We like to feel that dying is bad, bullets are bad, going negative in +/- are bad for your team in TDM.
So when I get the message from the guy that went 12-22 calling me a camper I just dont even know where to begin with them. You cant make people want to play this game in their head differently then the way they want to. We want more realism. If I want to jump around like a fairy Ill go rent assassins creed or prince of persia.
Its always the Run n gunner that isnt very good at it, that crys camper in the end too. The best RnGuners in my clan dont cry about campers, and the best tactical shooters in my clan dont complain about RnGunners. Its just the people that get beat by those who are good at a playstyle other then the one they prefer, that cry like little brats. Im sorry, Im just tired of the posts on here crying about camping.
