A question that has often come up on these forums, and that we as the community have seen activity on lately are the accusations of whether spawn camping/mashing is a legitimate form of play. Is this style of play something that the developers officially see as an acceptable way that players may choose to conduct their hunting practices?
We do not disallow spawn mashing, although we do agree that this is not an optimal way to play theHunter and this is not how we want people to hunt. However, if a person has bought a membership, it's their choice how to use it. In my personal opinion, they simply deprive themselves of the enjoyment of a proper hunt.
It's a different thing when it comes to competitions though, and we always try to set a reasonable amount of attempts to make sure that players who practice spawn mashing don't have an advantage over other hunters.
