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.
Several things to disagree with here. For one, people call "camping" anything that's not running around like a douchebag and shooting from the hip. I wish people would quit trying to police how other people play. I paid $60 just like everyone else if I wanna sit in a f****** corner and shoot people and go 5-1 then that's what I'm gonna do.
As for the other thing, I don't know what you guys aren't understanding here. I'm the king of hardcore, I know how it works like the back of my hand. In COD4 when you shoot somebody it says in big white letters at the bottom of your screen in "you killed so and so". In this game when you kill someone it pulls up their title and says "you killed so and so". Mine is not saying this and my two clan buddies screens ARE saying this. This isn't about HUDS or "intended behavior". This is a problem that I need fixed.
