That's a fairly narrow view isn't it? They're the ones *deliberately* sitting at their spawn. I can't be responsible for killing them if I don't want to wait around doing nothing. It's my game too. I don't do it to make people angry - I do it because they're amorously inviting it all bent over with legs spread at their spawn point.

I don't care enough about your worthless existence to consciously and purposefully grief you.

At preliminary glance - I like this idea. It's worked in other games.

Yes just you Zorena, you can sit around for 20 minutes, by which time the opposition has snuck up on you, then you can accuse them of camping instead.

On a serious note, in my experience of it (from a space standpoint), a quickly formed team flies up to the centre, if both teams are quickly formed they both meet - no problem. If the opposition is not quickly formed they tend to straggle in one by one whilst the 1st team picks them off one at a time all the while inching forwards. By the time the 1st team are 3/4 of the way across the map it can be 7-0 already, 2nd team lose interest, sit at spawn and start calling "spawn campers".

I don't think it is griefing, for the most part it's an unintentional side effect of forming up quickly and getting on with business - I'm sure camping does happen, I'm just saying that often it's non intentional.

I kind of like the idea of the spawn point choice, so long as it could work in such a way that the whole team spawned from the chosen location - not an individual choice, otherwise I think it would be open to abuse by the same calibre of people that fly to the edge of the map when the score is not going their way.

Is it me, or does the space map sometimes spawn enemies at the same spawn point? I respawn my blown up fed, start moving away from the point, and get shot by a klink that apparently spawned right behind me.
