Let's talk: Camping
I've noticed... quite a few toxic players and their opinions on Camping or other "Bad Strategies". This post is to at least release tensions a little (Or at least explain what it is). I'm not saying camping is bad, I'm simply saying it's flawed in a few ways that are easy to exploit. Yes, in all honesty I DO find camping annoying, but it's not really annoying when you see the strengths and weaknesses once you actually think about it. While you're all saying that "Camping is bad" really aren't taking into account that in a way: Camping is good for the Survivors. Yes, regrettably a camper might be both, the best, and worst thing that could possibly happen.
Before you even comment ANYTHING negative below, hear me out first.
When there is a camper... just ignore the hooked survivor. It's as simple as ignoring a survivor with a EV3 Myers running around. Just do the gens... heal up... all that sh*t. Nonetheless. It's a simple sentence and yet not many people read it.
Anyway... A Camper is someone who... well camps a survivor on the hook. Might be a Wraith or some other killer that's running "Insidious". They mostly do this out of: Insecurity about themselves, aware of a Super-Altruistic survivor nearby, or too nervous to leave the survivor unattended without him/her being unhooked the minute he leaves or turns around.
I'll say that Altruistic survivors are the cause of this believe it or not. It's always annoying to see that one survivor who unhooks that survivor that you took a long time trying to chase, and finally downed them, before you restart the LOOONG chase because you turned around 90 degrees for 2 seconds, because of said Survivor.
(This exact thing happened to me, 3 gens got done by the time that 1 player got downed and then rescued) And yet when they see a camper... Boom, instant noob... despite them for some reason still going for the hooked person... despite the killer next to him. Isn't the point of the game to "Avoid the Killer", not "Go in front of the killer because my friend is on the hook."
****IGNORE THE SURVIVOR ON THE HOOK WHEN THERE IS A CAMPER!!!****
I cannot stress this many times, do NOT go to the hook when there is a camper, you'll either: Do suicide saving someone else or the Camper downs and re-hooks the survivor you just saved, making them die faster. It's that simple people. do not save the survivor in the presence of a camper. Unless if your bringing Borrowed Time, at this instance, go ahead. but if you don't have it: Pretend the survivor isn't there. Poof, no longer there, gen rush or whatever. Their life is not more important than yours.
In honesty, yes, I do camp occasionally. But it's only because I continuously get all 4 survivors on a hook (5 times in a row.) If you want them to stop Camping... Just don't be Altruistic. Simple yes?
Just wanted to help loosen tensions. I'm not sure if this will do much, but hey, it's something. I also may or may not have some errors in this post, Feel free to talk more about this topic, or to ask me... stuff.
