I know, I've been spawn trapped with randoms but if you try to effort yourself at least and have a slight break through, your team will follow unless of course they are afk, or split screeners. You may not win the match after that but you won't be spawn trapped.

It feels like there is a lack of spawn points at times. I will find myself respawning in the same spot many times in a row.

Only been spawn trapped twice in the past 3 years so I think it is fair if you can let yourself stupidly get spawn trapped.

No offense.

Spawn trapping....I don't mind. Spawn camping... I do mind. If you are good enough to camp mid way and trap us on our side, then well played. But when your on a team, talking and organized , planning to push people back to their spawn and kill them as soon as they spawn...your a joke and your stats mean crap. I can't take anyone seriously who thinks that it's cool to do that. If your against another team, who are all set up communicating as well...then go for it...but spawn camping versus a group of random players...that's just boosting stats in my opinion. Especially on objective based games where you ignore the objective and just spawn camp.  But spawn trapping...I have no problem with that, at least I can spawn and take more than one step before getting shot, and it gives me a chance to break through or to at least defend myself.

Well said!!! Spawn trapping is fine, but spawn camping is BS and reporting them doesn't do crap!!!!  I pretty much only play capture the flag and every time I see Hijacked come up I wince because you know the hell that's coming (especially if you're not in a party and stuck with a garbage team that won't even use their mic's).  How is it fair or justifiable for you to sit in one spot and kill someone 0.25 seconds after they spawn in, all because there's a limited number of fixed spawn points and there's NOTHING you can do to get out of that cycle but quit (which causes a lot of other problems for the players who get sent to the game that you just quit and end up in the same situation).  If spawn points were random and you can still spawn trap that's great, but sitting on spawn points waiting for some poor bastard to spawn makes me want to spill your guts with a rusty spoon!!!!

If your team is getting spawn trapped, your team is outmatched and deserves to be spawn trapped.
