I dont care about spawncamping, nor do I blame the people doing it for using the poor system Cryptic put in place..

But..

Id wish people would call it for what it is..

Noone calls a nail for a "wood penetrator" either.

I haven't seen a problem with spawncamping in C+H, but killing ships in that one isn't the point. Arena, however, is a different story.

The problem, I believe, is the fed tendency to take the fedball concept too literally. They team up, drop mines and stay at the spawn on the impression it gives them instant reinforcements. This could not be further from the truth.

Any decent KDF team is able to kill a ship and work their way around in a cycle, so that they are only facing two or three enemies at once - and all along, the feds are respawning peicemeal straight into the fight. I've done it as a klink, and had it done to me as a fed. And if the klinks get their rhythm, the match is a white wash.

The solution to this is to follow a simple procedure - as soon as you spawn for the first time, team so you can see who needs heals, and get the heck away from the spawn!

If you engage the enemy over the centre of the field, it means both sides have a delay with reinforcements, players can get their bearings when they respawn, and its easier to regroup if needed. Plus you have additional space to play around with.

Ker'rat is a different matter. But then, it has a tendency to throw same faction on different teams. That zone has more bugs than Zindi insectoid world.

I, suggest that we now call AFK Emblem Hunters in PvP "Peace Ambassadors", "Picardist Philosophers" or "Alliance Restoration Workers".

How about "Morons"?

Hmm..

Escort Captains = "Officer to secure supreme tactical victory through the use of superior firepower"

Science Captains = "Officer to facilitate the downfall of opposing forces, by exceptionelly sly means"

Engineering Captains = "Officer to ensure the survival of allied forces, by maintaining their life through extreme healing"

lol, you're pretty much describing a no-win scenario... at least if the fleet was even moderatley skilled. I do realize that if the difference between the teams is too big the weaker team will eventually be pushed back to their spawn point... but if the other team is that much stronger, the battle is most likely lost anyway...

The most fun I have is when i spawn alongside an enemy! Makes for a very sudden 1v1 fight!
