why do people say shooting in semi isn't a skill? you cant crawl down a snake spraying 12.5 bps in semi and you cant hold a lane at 12.5 bps while reloading in semi. not to mention its much harder to walk a trigger at a full out sprint than it is standing still in a back bunker with semi.

idk about you, but i know quite a few players that can run and gun at 12 in semi, as well as reload, and the snake player on my old team could crawl and shoot semi, but at slightly lower ROF

im not saying its impossible im just saying its a skill.
and p.s. i didnt wanna say it but there is no way you can shoot 21 bps without some sort of bounce or board control in your gun.

I agree its a skill, that **** is hard. I just said I've done it over a chrono, not that I do it all the time. It was with a karnivor and there were alottt of breaks. I can consistently shoot my etek at 17-18 and there really isn't any bounce. I literally would practice walking a trigger whenever I was bored.

Traditionally 7-man is much slower paced, and methodical. Teams were just playing this last event really slow. The PSP format and field layouts are setup to promote fast aggressive play. I think lengthening the fields had a lot to do with slowing the pace as well.

Haha I was thinking that too.

...and furthermore I'd say that it's a skill that should be included in the game!

what a brilliant statement. hey do me a favor. add up all the pro teams, d1 teams, d2 teams and d3 teams from both leagues.
youll find 7 man is slowly raising while psp is slowly declining
numbers dont lie.

It's not how many teams are playing, it's how the venues and decisions are being made. I'm free to my opinion, you're..I guess free to yours. Don't get butthurt.

I don't think Minions was expressing his opinion just stating a fact.

youre not expressing an opinion. an opinion is saying "i feel" ,or "i think", or "it seems as though", etc. before your opinion. you stated 7 man WILL die as if you have some inside info that nobody else has.
the fact is 7 man is getting increasingly bigger every year while psp slowly dwindles.
my opinion is 7 man is and always will be better than 7 man and i feel it will someday reign supreme once again.

again that is opinion. here this might help: a fact is something that is empirically true and can be supported by evidence, while an opinion is a belief that may or may not be backed up with some type of evidence
