Honestly, I think its perfectly fine. Slower than most can do semi auto. Keeps everyone one a level playing field. And last I checked, you still have to put the paint where it needs to go. It doesn't turn into lasers.

I myself Avg:19 Peak:23 on semi auto on my Luxe with custom setted sling trigger.
And With my left I average out 16 peak 18. Thats why the capped ramping is better.

I like capped ramping. Uncapped semi almost killed the sport for me because kids with certain triggers and debounce settings could shoot like 20bps on "semi"

Like a person said above me you still have to put the paint where it needs to go

I fire semi no need for ramping I just think it is pointless when I can get up to 11-12 bps.

I think the price of playing has a lot more to do with paintball falling off then ramping..

the cost of playing is a lot more when you shoot 8 pods in one game . I like the days when i could play with a couple bags of 500 . not anymore .

DON'T SHOOT 8 PODS A GAME!

If I can make a hopper last me 2 games on a rec day, you sure as hell can too. It's not that hard with ramping as long as you practice this magical skill known as trigger control. If you also feel like ramping is making you burn through paint, here's a wonderful idea for you, DON'T USE IT.

Not really that hard. In fact i spent the past two weekends using my automag and pumps on xball fields. Lots of people in Nor Cal are starting to do that.

There's nothing more satisfying than snap shooting someone with one ball when they watsed 2 pods on you already.

Poking your head out when they stop shooting at you so they waste paint isn't a bad idea either
