What does camping mean?

Holding position

A term that can be used in multiple gaming contexts, but generally refers to "staking out" in a single location; sometimes used as a technique in World of Warcraft, when a higher level character kills a lower level character and then "camps" at the corpse so every time the lower level character resurrects at the corpse, the higher level character kills him again.


I can't resurrect for more than two seconds because that jerk won't stop camping my corpse and killing me!
