There's been a lot of confusion about this rule so I'll be explaining how and when players will be getting punished for it.

No teaming.
Do your damage, help your team and don’t waste time.

What does this mean exactly? Does it mean that you have to help your team basically all the time without a break? Well, not exactly. While players are allowed to camp, they have to be helping their team in some way. Engineers can build sentries so they can damage the hale and Medics can heal other team members, for instance.

So if players just go to some random spot to hide at the start of the round and stay there the whole time without helping their team in any way, they can get punished for it.

First example of this is players going to the secret room on weapon_storage at the start of the round, for instance. They usually don't help their team in any way, since Hales don't always come to the secret or come there at the very end of the round. Another example is the two Medics camping in a tunnel stratergy on some maps, like weapon_storage/weaponsdepot or dustshowdown. This stratergy is allowed if the Medics actively take part in the round in some way, like coming out every once in a while to heal teammates (every 2 minutes or so). Hiding in that spot for most of the round not healing the team and not participating is considered inactivity and is punishable.

Now you may ask... how can you actively take part in the round as a Heavy or Engineer, for instance? Those classes are supposed to camp most of the time, right? As a Heavy, you can shoot at the Hale every time they're visible. As a Engineer, you can use your pistol or wrangler. Even though you're not dealing heavy amounts of damage, you're still helping your team in some way.

TL;DR: If you're planning to hide somewhere from the very start of the round for the majority of it without helping your team in any way, you can get punished for it.

Hope this clears some things up.
