well the bps limit is stupid but allowing ramp and excessive bounce is stupid all fields should adhere to nppl rules or whatever

^ well i do agree, but he is talking about rec ball, and a ROF cap is reasonable, you want to encourage players(newbies) to play, with confidence. At some feilds, I have to ask to play w/ electros, or even mech cockers. From the feilds point of veiw, they keep more customers if the "starters" or what ever have a good time, or just stuck up rec players. People tend to complain when they get shot, live with it.

from a business stand point it makes no sence, you WANT to sell a lot of paint... as for the intimidation factor for the new people, that can be minimized by making the teams "fair". kids feel more confident around adults, especially if they work at the filed the refs/owners *usually* know how to run the filed and how to even up the teams so it's fun for everyone

could be an insurance thing

as far as on rec ball - keeps the playing field level with the super spyders and such.

13bps is still pretty damned fast

theres no way they could enforce it, unless they get those handeld chronos, you cant really tell the difference between 10, 13, or 15 BPS that easily.

Most field insurance doesn't allow Full Auto. I got ten bucks that says they don't have any.

You can check paintballinsurance.com

turns out it is an insurance thing.... although, tournaments will have no cap... ?? i guess cause they figure thats experienced players.... and they dont have hand held chronos... the refs are supposedly gonna do it by ear haha...

i would not play there considering you can get most matrix to hit 400 fps and still be pretty quiet.

I think he means BPS not FPS by ear.

Anyway why are ya complaining? 100 bucks says you can't hit 13 mid game anyway without bounce. Not saying that your fingers arnt fast but most people cant do it in game..I know I can 16 over a chrono but in game I go down to like 9-10

I can see the feild making u use vl200's so no one is shooting faster than 13bps...

They sound like idiots. I mean, some markers can't even have a lower bps cap put on them. I can't see why all of the sudden they would start doing this, seems like some crazy parent went nuts and talked to the unsurance agency or something.

im not complaining, and do you want my paypal address? becuase 13bps is not that fast, and 100 bucks sounds good to me i got a 5man comin up i could really use the cash... psp and cfoa did 15, I just think 13 is kinda of a lowball. it wont affect hardly anyone tho, very few ppl shoot markers capable of anything higher than that....but for the few of us that doo. its jus kinda sucks...

dude, it's for recball safety.

there's no cap on tourneys, so I personally would feel so offended by it.

i know it's like shooting your Borg with a crutch, but your skills will get much more honed when you don't rely soley on the power of the borg.

it may encourage planning, team work and communication

how about that?
