Oh and can you still use the repair/rearm facilities in LMS? I would suggest disabling them (if not already disabled by default) so ammo-centric 'Mechs, like the SSRM Vulture, cannot rearm after it's emptied all it's missiles (which takes a while anyway). Probably should turn on No Eject as well. So you choose your 'Mech/Tank and that's it (just like in a League game).
You can and it is a necessity to at least rearm sometimes. Since the game is about surviving until the end of the round, every player who gets into a fight early would most likely not win the round (so there would be a huge amount of luck involved). With the ammunition some 'Mechs bring along, you can only kill two enemies. With ten players on a server you might get into trouble.
I think the game would change if there were no means of repairing or rearming your 'Mech. Some assets would be completely useless all of a sudden (Shadowcat A and C come to my mind), except for when you are playing with less than five players on a server. Maybe everybody would try to use 'Mechs using energy based weapons.
Also, you don't earn money in LMS. So your ability to repair and rearm is quite limited. If you buy a huge 'Mech, there might not be any money left for any of that.
My basic definition of camping once was "somebody stays in one spot for a prolonged amount of time and waits for an opportunity to drop by". It probably has changed since i play MWLL, even moving targets can be accused of camping by me now. So maybe i should not use the word "camping", but instead talk about "slow, boring, frustrating, play-it-safe style of playing the game".
One example of a proper camper (in my opinion) would be somebody who jumps onto the edge of the map in Hels Gate and fires Arrows at the battling players in the center of the map for the whole round, effectively stealing kills without being in any kind of danger. (I wonder, why this
came to my mind first...)
I am not sure about it. I just like to have a good fight. If i die in the progress, i smile and want to start another battle. Anybody using long-range weaponry and shooting me in the back does not earn that smile, he pisses me off very fast. I know that guy might be the superior player, but if that's the case, i don't really want to get as good as he is. I play for fun, not because i have to paint the walls with screenshots of my "20-0"-kill-ratio.
