Atomic Brouhaha: Sniping versus camping versus everyone else

Perhaps the greatest thing about industry drinks is how easily the gloves come off and how quickly true feelings boil to the surface. Such was the case not so long ago when outspoken freelancer Dave Kozicki clashed with Atomic’s David Hollingworth on the topic of camping. To make matters more interesting, FPS-loving freelancer Nathan Lawrence entered the fray, throwing fists at both sides of the argument. Suffice it to say, things got interesting.

What you’re about to read is the slightly more composed follow-up to this epic showdown between three highly opinionated gamers. (Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Day of Defeat, Half-Life, Industry, Killzone 3, PC, PS3, Warhawk, Xbox 360)

What people really want you to do is stand in the middle of maps shooting in the air :)

It's brilliant though, listening to people get angry because they suck. Anyone ever played an aggro head in Fifa or other sports games? Funniest shi* ever

It seems people will find any exscuse as tp why you beat them, apart from you actually just being better than them.

For some reason people online can't stand the idea that people are just better than them.

Sniping is prolly the hardest thing to balance in an fps (well if the snipers are 1 hit kills that is.) I mean you're basically fighting an invisible foe. Quite literally if we're talking Killzone. I dont know if I'd call it panzy but snipers can get really annoying.

It's not so much the idea of people being better than you, racking up a decent K/D ratio is a piece of piss, but more tackling the objective as a group and working as a team... a concept lost on the majority of gamers

I define camping as a sniper taking advantage of spawn areas or other map exploits.

Anything else is fair game...

If I'm camping I call it "defending a position" . Everyone else though is being a noob! ;^)
