That's the kind of playstyle that I try strive for. Personally I think on their own camping and rushing are terrible tactics, but when you combine the best of each you end up with the perfect playstyle for COD.

The noobs are the pawns, the king the campers, rushers the knghts, outer rushers the rooks and the bishops are those random guys who go flawless :3

Izjar11, I've compared RTS and FPS games to chess before as well. It's very relevant because it's really the battle of minds. CoD is not different. You anticipate your enemies move to counter it (spawn, route of attack). You must think ahead to what you will do if any enemy attacks one way or another and how you will react to it. People always say: "CoD" is twitch shooter. Well, you can play the game like that but IMO, you won't get the best results by using that as your only strategy. This brings me back to the days of CoD2. No one ever thought that CoD was a twitch shooter back then. Sure, it's changed but the strategy of thinking through your moves still exists and those that choose to use this strategy will unfortunately be branded as 'campers' because they just outsmart the players that choose not to think several moves ahead.

I love SnD because it's all about the metagame.

Unfortunately people will always blame anything else but themselves for failure. I consider myself a run n gunner but I don't play like a headless chicken, I like to be on the move but if I find myself balls deep in the enemy spawn I'll just camp it out untill it's safe to move on again and I also like patrolling high traffic areas and sometimes I'll just stop moving, take a look at the mini map and decide what my next move will be.
