It depends on the map. Most maps I like to stay mobile, but on some (especially Giant) it's best to camp.

With the people I play Plat with, it's usually a semi-camp. We'll be around one side of the map for the most part. So on Dagger, the control room building + the back ramp area. Or on White, we usually hold the upper part of the base and flex one way or the other as circumstances demand.

I refuse to farm Rio, and unless I'm with a good team who can contact one another and nuke spawns, I tend to gravitate between camping a specific spot and moving throughout, kiting enemies where we need to (like if a Pretorian is hunting us down).

Giant and Glacier camp for me. Used to go in the Rio box before I found out about those.

I'm generally mobile. Since most people camp, I try to maneuver to outflank or hit the enemy from behind and they converge on the group.

If I'm in a Rio box game, I generally stay around the middle of the map acting as a scout killing as many things as possible before they reach the box. Because bad players who use the box can screw up even in there is the dumbest of ways so I try not to let them get overwhelmed. Usually have to retreat mid-wave, though not to box, unless they all got downed. :/

I tend not to play platinum. Randoms can be a total crapshoot and the only time I can carry on platinum is with the ghost/AIU/GI/Destroyer etc.

I'm much more comfortable on gold.

I like to play on the move mostly since it keeps the game fun. If we're dire straits, like a teammate who's down or my healths low, then I normally camp tell we get our footing togehter.

Where's the "Go with the flow?" option?
