Honestly, the general admin vibe was to deregulate spawn camping as much as possible, even allowing it at main spawn was discussed. Just my opinion but policing every player that shoots into spawn, whether they get a kill or not, seems to be a hot button with a lot of our players. The lines between spawn camping and spawn killing have been blurred and chasing down offenders after the fact is like rubbing a dog's nose in his turd 8 hours later.

If you're a player who is fighting someone and you run towards spawn but are killed as you go in/out? Not spawn camping. You didn't just respawn. As mentioned earlier, this isn't tag and there's no "I'm running to a safe zone so you can't fire at me now" type of thing.

On the contrary, if you're an attacking player and you have to wonder to yourself "could this be considered spawn-camping", then you should probably move on and stop doing what you were about to do.

Don't cry wolf and don't be a douche, keeps the server a happier place.

it isnt "spawn" camping.. you can easily spawn, change classes safely, wait for allies.. if you cant figure out how to get out of your safe area then you deserve to repeatedly die.. with the fast server respawn times it is disadvantageous for campers to linger.. they will soon enough expire from lack of health.. it is more advantageous for the defense if someone prefers to linger outside of the safe area rather than going on to get the intel.

also with death chat enabled anybody that gets killed repeatedly outside of the safe area deserves to be killed.. even if he does die more than once then he will have contributed to the expiration of the camper (provided he has half a brain)...

in addition to that since your server requires 5 caps to win it isnt as if a team can be completely rolled in one go if they do happen to be inept enough to allow campers to linger.

this rule makes little sense on servers with fast respawn times.
