You know when you get killed or kill somebody it pops up an "acknowledgement" that you did it and who it was that you either killed or killed you? That's what I'm NOT getting.
I'm one level short of unlocking hardcore, but I imagine what you are describing is intended behavior. In COD4, you did not get any sort of kill confirmation (such as a points display, as in normal mode), which is likely the point. Hardcore takes away all the visual crutches of the game, one of which is those displays.
As for camping being a strategy, that's kind of BS, IMHO. Sitting in a corner and waiting for someone to run by you is not strategy. Moving slowly and tactically, finding good fire points that cover lots of ground or key contact points, working with a team to effectively cover each other - those are strategies.
I think a lot of people think if you're not running-and-gunning that you're camping. But, there's a big gap between run-and-gun and camping - that's the type of play that makes for the best matches, IMHO.
