Poll: Should Spawn Spamming/Camping be allowed?
Yes, it's up to the team to defend it. (32%)
No, It's cheap and deplorable. (61%)
I really don't give a shit either way. (7%)
Poll has ended (it ran for 7 days). 71 total votes.
Ive been planning this for like 2 months. It was a rule put into play strictly for my own convienence while playing, so, since I rarely play, it seems fair to leave it up to you guys. That being said, no promises on changing it.

On one hand, it takes up a lot of admins time, and is responsible for a large majority of the whining on the server, when it could just be up to whatever team to keep people to spamming their spawn.

On the other hand, you have kyree, who will repeatedly do nothing but spam it for hours on end. Strategy aside, its just lame.

Oh, and new forum feature: polls.

    I know if it's allowed a lot of people will do nothing but spam spawn. It'd be pointless and nothing more than padding one's stats.

    I really think a lot more people will leave their base if they can go spam respawn. Which is a good thing. Because it's no fun when 11 players from each team are playing defense, and 2 from each team are on offense. Hell, it seems like there's always about 5 or 6 people on each team that fight from, or very close to their respawn all the time. It's payback time bitches.

    I think it should be allowed.. Everything short of demo piping. I dont do it, but its not an issue with me.. If the team is that bad on D its maybe warranted. Either way it makes no diff to me. You die, you move on. People can die anywhere in the map.

I agree with asian, I think it would encourage people to stop hanging around their spawns.

    spawn spam "mostly" affects defense. Since i rarely play that, i dont give a shit.

    I think this shoulndt even be in discussion because now whats to stop a team with max amount of spies popping 2-4 pills per person on spawn doors, or mirvs, emps etc. Every player knows how deadly those secondary nades are.

Drippy seems to have put a lot of time into the server and forums, if spawn spam is aloud whats to make this different then some other pub, a few pissers and ralphy?

    If you vote more than once, what does it do? Does it nullify your first vote, or add all your votes?
