; Mythgraveyard : Camping




This describes the inactivity of a player who is just sitting around, trying to avoid any confrontations until s/he is ready to fight. Camping is most often seen in Last Man on The Hill games, where the camper will arrive at the flag with all his troops intact to try to defeat the other (usually heavily damaged from earlier skirmishes) teams. Camping is "a tactic where in a FFA game, one player keeps his army away from the skirmishing in an attempt to move in at the end of the game to win. Usually employed on game types such as 'Last Man on the Hill' and 'Steal the Bacon'". In games with precise goals and time limits such as Last Man or Steal the Bacon, staying out of the battle and conserving your troops for a final rush is called camping. This term is most often used as an insult by someone who just lost.
