    Currently I find it very irritating when I come across a camper in Spleef or Pizza Spleef. There is rarely anything you can do in the game to make yourself win except from occasionally a jump topping which is still very risky or jumping, breaking and hoping.

    I generally find myself either in a "who can wait the longest" showdown or telling them how camping is against the rules and reporting them and stuff.

    Unfortunately I find reporting them a very bad option as it can take a while for a moderator to read it and then all you get is a little experience. I think camping could maybe have a slightly more severe punishment, maybe a very short ban or something as I find it exceedingly annoying when playing spleef.

    They could add a camp detection.

    And what would that do? Spam their chat?

    I agree. Maybe make it so that the edges of the arena fall, until theres like 5blocks left where they can dm it off?

    Why would it do that.. It would kick them if they detected camping..

    Also, you can get a small ban on them if you see them do it multiple times after warning them already :p

    I don't like that because I've seen plugins like that before, and it always false-detects camping and ruins the game. Would de-attract players in my opinion.

    I think as @Colourlight says camp detection could be difficult, for example campers can usually go AFK but if you're having a showdown where neither of you are going to jump off then the non-camper could be AFK too. I like Colourlight's suggestion of the arena slowly going smaller, maybe this could happen after 5 minutes or so, a bit like what block decay was like in SkyWars. @Aimee2323 , usually you play people you've not played before so it's unlikely I'd ever see a camper again but I expect that they would camp again.

    After 3mins, more like, games usually last less than 5mins with no campers.

    That's why we make better more effective plug ins than theirs
    Because we all know that went fantastically and was loved by everyone and that's why we still have it today! (Detect the sarcasm)

    I didn't like block decay in SkyWars either, but in SkyWars there was always a way to get to the other player whereas in spleef if it came on late enough I don't think it would take away from the gameplay at all.

    A system that detects camping with warnings. Like

    Camp detected! > Warning 1 = Kick
    Camp Detected! > Warning 2 = Temp ban or another kick
    Camp Detected! > Warning 3 = ban?

    Maybe once a player stops moving, and sticks to like two blocks, it could say "Stop Camping" in the chat and after like 10 seconds the player gets kicked out of the game.

    I would say give 2 warnings in chat before kicking the player. I don't agree with automatic bans, since it can wrongly ban.

    So keep it with kicking. 2 Warnings and then kick. Seems good. How about if they continue?

    They're fine to continue considering they're gonna keep getting kicked and losing, eventually they'll learn to stop

    I agree with this. Campers ruin the fluency of the game.

    I like the camp detection idea. Support on that.
