7-Man Team Captains and Players unite

This thread is really for my purposes and for Cyndi & Brian to hear the voices of those teams who have played the 7-man events or are planning to play the 7-Man GPL series in 2009.

Please take a moment to discuss the Rate of Fire (ROF) questions in my survey.

Thank you Eric. Things like this really helps us hear what the players have to say. Please feel free to make commenets. We hate to make a decision or change that all the players dislike.

I like the ramping at 13.3 cap. Its stops the cheating so much with the cap. What ever they cap at will be fine, I think that 7man was fun this year with cap. It makes the GPL diffrent and I think that is important for thier idenity.

Right now they are not feeding NPPL or such, and they should try to do what they want to. Ramping no Ramping no biggie, just less controversy with bouncing and stuff like that, they should just make sure no one is shooting over the 13.3, i think that should be paid attention to more with also hot guns.

My 2 cents, we are playing either way

Love the GPL

If you call yourself a skilled player... back it up by using your physical tool, not an electronic advantage.... The way I have seen this sport changing the past few years is players are looking for technical advantages rather than their own skills.... I think it degrades the integrity of the sport that I have played competitively for many years....

i liked the ramping... i can shoot just as fast as anyone out there but id rather ramp at a slightly slower speed. i just think its a bit more consistant and adds a new level to 7man. i mean i hate 7 man id MUCH rather be playing xball, but it was interesting ramping in 7 man

I don't have a strong opinion, but I'm intrigued by the idea of an across the board cap. I think some people who think they can shoot really fast get a little help and an across the board cap would be easier to enforce than trying to hunt down guns that are "shooter friendly".

I also think an across the board cap would force the use of other skills, but I don't really have any opinion on whether it would be better or worse beyond the enforceability issue.

It's called Millenium Series.


I'll take Semi Uncapped.

Edit: if this goes with the PSP Ramp, might as well follow the cap for 10bps.

I read the GPL / GXPL threads a lot, because we always want to make it to a GXPL event however it always falls short. I have yet to attend an event and am not sure if I will be this year... So I am not sure if what I say matters...

With that said, I am one of the original inventors of the cheater board, I had one in my 4x4, then my Angel, followed by Eblades and Timmys. I have since retired, due to the fact the PSP has pretty much put a nix on the entire program, and the few teams in the NPPL who did have board, were getting them direct from their guys... Not me.

While I haven't sold a board in several years now, I assure you that the technology in cheater chips is better then anything you will ever have to catch it. With wireless equipment becoming dirt cheap, and extremely small one can now enable and disable modes from a mile away if needed. I have designed a few chips for fun, that work off of a remote switch that someone in the crowd has. When the button is depressed the gun is in cheater mode, let go, out of cheat mode...

The reason for the cap in the PSP wasn't because they wanted to limit paint, cut costs, or manipulate the way the game is played. It was because they couldn't come up with a good way to test for semi-auto.

My opinion on the subject, moot... But I just wanted to add that bit of information.
