  • Sniping into uncaps?

    Is this allowed? I got sniped when I spawned first thing on the map with the red water and boats and stuff.

    Here's a diagram:

    I complained but everyone said "Lol thats the game nub, you're a retard".

    #5 in these rules:
    http://www.tacticalgamer.com/battlef...te-06-mar.html

    "For Rush and other game modes, there are no restricted areas beyond those imposed by the game."

    #2 on the other hand:

    "No Spawn Camping"

    In rush mode you can fire into the attackers base but you cant spawn camp and pick them off one by one. Someone correct me Im wrong.

        1. That's legal. Expect to be shot at, regardless of where you are on the map.

        2. That's not spawn camping [as defined by our rules]. Spawn Camping is simply waiting for a player to appear at a known location, and killing them before they have a chance to move. Fortunately it's an exploit that's actually a little difficult to do in BC2.

        3. Drop the DB references please... maturity and mutual respect are just as important as not bunnyhopping.

        :)

          It would seem like there's a lot of disagreement on this issue.

          "Spawn Camping is simply waiting for a player to appear at a known location, and killing them before they have a chance to move."

          That's what happened. I was killed within 2 seconds of spawning.

            Not all the time. On the desert map, just to the side of the base is a huge hill that looks right down into the spawn. Last night I had a guy up there that was taking us out as soon as our boots touched the ground. Most of the other maps its hard to get to the spawn but on that one all you need is an ATV and a scope.

              Were you spawning on a squadmate? I thought the fixed, campable spawnpoints were back from the crest of the hill - unreachable by snipers at a lower level.

              Its a subtle but important difference.

                I've been on that island with people sniping the attackers base and I can definitely see how one could argue it's spawn camping. Excellent diagram by the way!

                  I've had it happen before, albeit not on TG servers, on the actual spawn. Only happened once, but still happened none-the-less.
