I don't know it this is the right place for this kind of thread but I would like to have some some clear, written down definitions of spawncamping since it's the main problem of MK. If there already is a thread about this topic I'm sorry and this Thread can be deleted. Orherwise:

I would suggest some additions to the old-school "sitting in front the spawn placing stickys" spawncamping and also add people that are shooting rockets from e.g. the roof at the spawndoor because in my opinion there is nearly no difference, in fact these people are even better protectet.

I don't see a difference in those either. Have you actually seen admins not punish for things that should be considered spawncamping (and you're sure that the admin saw these things happen and it's not just because they didn't see it)? Or is this purely because you're worried by the fact that it is not specified and you feel the definition should be given?

The thing is, there are some definitions e.g. "snipers with vaccinator medic" but it's a map specific problem in that case since you don't have many place to be on and usually the people just sit on the roof and wait for enemys to come up. Sometimes some very smart solidiers decide to shoot some rockets at the spawn just in case. And I've never seen people being punished for shoting at the spawn as long as they have a specified distance. I didn't see something like this happen on any other map.

But snipers (e.g.) if they are far away from the enemy spawn I THINK that is not considered as spawncamping and nor rocket-spamming isn't spawncamping either if they are far from spawn (and i recall: "i think").

Well, its help alot if u guys can tell us (me, jarza, killermen and stout) if there is any spawncampers. Also you guys can use !call if there is any rulesbreakers. We had thinked and edited map with Jarza, but always they find new spawncamping places.

You're right it's more these solidiers/demos standing on the roof and spamming down at the spawn, or like today a Sentry just out of range, stuff that's propably not considered as spawncamping but very annoying. Also camping on the roof/buildings sentry just out of range makes it literally impossible to run out and kill some people.
