Why is it assumed?

Why do people assume that because you have a low spm tbat you are a camper?  I play the edges of the map tactically,  but usually I am always on the move, but by no means do I camp. Keeping the edge of the map on one side of me just eliminates a side I have to watch, and lets me shoot at the nice meaty center of the map. Sure I will stop and exploit a long site path to get some kills, but usually move on fairly quick because I know tbe people I kill will come looking for revenge.

Depends what gamemode you are playing. If you have a low SPM in TDM it means you either camp, play very passive, or play like you descibe. If you have a low SPM in objective gamemodes that it does mean that you camp and dont play the objective.

This.

There's nothing wrong with camping in TDM. I mean the point of TDM is not to die so much compared to objective game modes so I don't blame players for playing more passively.

I play Domination most of the time and my overall SPM is around 420 but the only reason it's so high is due to the fact that there are more ways to obtain a high SPM (i.e objective pursuits and also scorestreaks are pretty easy to achieve in objective game modes).

I play TDM pretty much in the style you have described and have a SPM over 300.

I'll probably pass judgement on a combination of K/D and SPM and I'm usually right.

So many variables are involved in analyzing stats, unfortunately, you provided no details on what your SPM is, how many kills you have, and what game mode you play.

Without insulting your post: Why do you care what people say? Camp or not, its your choice to play as you desire. F--- what others say.

No matter what you do, you will be called a name anyways,.

Oh I was wondering how people thought they could derive someones playstyle from their stats. I don't really care what someone says so much. My spm is around 175-200 and my kd is 1.13 if you think that helps. I only play tdm.

No offense but TDM players with your stats tends to play cautious and maybe that's why they mistook you for a hardcore camper. I'm a TDM player, too. I play pretty much no other game modes.

I say just ignore them and don't let them get into your head. You get mad at them then you let them win in the psychological part of the battle.
