    Uncalled for banning and some the definition of 'CAMPING'

    I was banned from the 'One Night Stand' server for 50 games, the accusation is camping. I was playing a siege map, on one of the bathrrom mods. I was everywhere between the super supplier on the floor next to the wall, the core - for repair purposes, the dish above the tub - to check on the status of a nuke, the sink - to snipe a few people for RU, the furthest teleporter on the counter - to check on a super mine I had placed to ensure it was still there. From there I would drop down to the floor and go back to the super supplier to heal and get more ammo...or I would go along the counter top to the tub, run along the edge of the tub and drop down to the super supplier.
    This is not camping! This is called patrolling!

    Here's some definitions for the one who banned me.

    The first definition on the page!

    Patrol:
    A person or group of people sent to keep watch over an area, esp. a detachment of guards or police

    READ IT!!!!! A.R.E.A. Area...

    Here's the definition of area for those who still think I was camping.

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&r...w=1003&bih=592

    Now for those who've been playing first person shooters for as long as I have (1992), you'll know that the term 'camping' is constantly being used out of context. The true definiton of camping is as follows:

    http://www.theaveragegamer.com/terminology/

    Camp: To remain in one strategic place and repeatedly kill people or mobs.

    And that is until your character dies. So when you ban someone for camping...make sure that's what they are doing. Now I'd appreciate it, if my ban was removed and any further accusations be scrutinized accordingly. If you don't know the terms...don't play the game until you learn them.

    I think camping is used in your case for your standing on the soap dish popping heads.
    But either way, there is a fine line between defense and camping, you appear to have been doing what would be called defense, or in your own words patrolling.

    Who banned you btw?
    If it was who I think, than you were probably banned unfairly. lol

    I can say that people who do camp are not banned, and people who are defending are.
    Some1 needs to work on that in the uK servers.

    I'm not entirely sure who banned me...I never got a chance to get that information. The person I was debating it with was something like Cirea or something to that effect.

    And I only ever killed one person from the soap dish. I was waiting for a nuke that was launched.

    It should say ban reason | person that banned you.

    If there is no name I will unban you until someone comes forward.

    Not pointing fingers, but Krikor played under Circle, was the person named Circle?

    Thank you for removing my ban...

    I was warned about camping...but I was not camping. And I argued that fact. And I'm not trying to start trouble...when I'm accused of something that I am clearly innocent of doing, then I will stand up against my accuser(s). I did get irritated over someone with the name of shadownuker i believe, used a nuke to attack only the nukes that were being built. After the third time of this happeneing I stated that I wouldn't fire another shot. And after dying a few times of tring to repair the core and my super mine, i gave up trying to not fire any shots and resumed the routine I had taken up.

    I am still not sure if it was 'circle' or not...I'm not sure if there's a way to check that particular games log information or not.
