I only ever play TDM in Hardcore. Yes, a lot of people camp and it's annoying.
However, they always seem to camp near a Betty/Clay/Shock... I now use Engineer with Dead Silence and two Black Hat's.
There's nothing sweeter than killing a camper with their own equipment. If the Betty/Clay is close by them and they decide to move a few inches... boom
I'm curious, why do you play that gamemode?
Its the one gamemode that you do not have to worry about the following:
1- Idiot teammates who do not play the objective
2- Overwhelming scorestreaks in the air
3- Did I mention idiotic teammates?
TDM is the grand daddy of gamemodes, simple, yet not easy, balanced and to the point.
The obvious answers would be;
A) You like that you paid £45 for the game and only use one corner of a room in a map
B) Your left analogue stick is broken, so therefore you cant walk/run anywhere and have to hide
C) You have a fear of moving in a video game
D) You suffer from motion sickness
Hold on, you ask a question to those who play TDM and then provide your own self inflicted losy responses? Nice.
You obviously do not need any one to explain to you why playing it is what it is, people hide, people run, what's the difference?
Do you know what that is? The person who plays it makes the difference, poor players cry, good players win!
Where do you fall? Wait your post already's answers that!
I'll translate his post for you, mate...
I can't counter campers and just raged so come here to cry. Answer my sarcastic question. I've seen a lot of people camping, therefore I am accusing everyone in TDM of doing so.
I am now going to ask mummy for some hot milk before bed. I hope she rubs my head as I nod off again tonight.
I've not complained about campers, nor have I cried, i merely asked a question.......and that, from you mediocre responses so far has not been answered
So I can only assume you are TDM players.....right?
Your serious, aren't you?
You asked a questions yet provide a biased "I'll tell you" why answers! How is that answering your question. And your responses sounds exactly like someone who might be crying, if your not I apologize for saying it.
But from a TDM playing standpoint, I love TDM its great so yes I play the bloody gamemode and in my preferred game mode I need to learn to deal with absolutely every style of COD gaming there is with out (not directed at you) crying about how others play the game!
I mainly play Domo, but today I've played a lot of HCTDM and Chaos Moshpit.
Tonight, with the clan, we played nothing but HCS&D.
So, to answer your question, yes, I do play TDM, but not exclusively and only ever HC unless it pops up in Moshpit. In fact, I've never once, in any CoD, selected Core - TDM.
I'm an active player, never camp and 99% of the time in HCTDM I finish top and win.
I can't answer your original question with the multiple choice answers you provided. It would have been a lot simpler if you asked "campers... why do you camp?" Instead you assume everyone here who plays TDM is a camper.
I enjoy TDM, but I prefer OBJ based modes. Some interesting observations as most of my friends only play TDM and don't like obj based games.
1. When I'm party leader or playing tdm alone, I rarely run into campers.
2. When playing with any of my TDM friends as party leader, the lobbies are filled with campers and target finders.
3. My play style and score per minute in TDM are quite different than the friends I play that mode with. A 290 spm and 1.7 K/D in TDM mode puts me in with other players that move and don't hide.
So basically to answer you question I play TDM to enjoy the game with friends that only play TDM.
I can adapter to play any play style, and unless the OP learns to do the same, he will continue to get stomped in TDM.
My favorite threads on these forums are the ones where people come to talk about how "good" they are, but are getting crushed by x weapon, x playstyle, or in x mode and therfore those who killed them are inferior players that should sell their console.
