the former team mentoring process is no more..
Used to be that you needed a pretty good chunk of change to get started in any significant way.. this kept the ratio of punters to players in check
sure there are always boneheads that don't get it... but if it cost that bonehead a grand to get through the door ... a lot never bothered to try.
all I am saying is that I think we need to construct a barrier to entry to deflect the punters and tourists.
AV used to serve as a gatekeeper... even that is gone in any real sense.
There is no gatekeeper.. the gates are wide open .. anyone who has a half assed desire to jump in a game can.
Brian McIlmoyle, why are you so worked up about new young people starting? Fuck if someone wants to use a $60 gun let them, it's huge advantage to you since your $1000+ gun hopefully shoots better.
I have a feeling your upset that you spent a lot of money to play army barbie and go up extra early to organize all your gear twice and put on make-up when some dude showed up in jeans/hoddy and lit you up with a $60 clear gun.
Sound about right?
