Do not know how many times I've heard " fuck how do you move so quiet for a fat bastard" after I've killed or mercied someone.
It's a game play to have fun, if someone is lagging ether help them or move on, they will eventually catch up or provide you with that much need evac support.
Is it good to get in shape? Certainly, however I wouldn't avoid Milsim games because one is a fat bastard. I partook in them before my sabattical from airsoft and I certianly am a fatty. The key is to a) recognize it, b) address it and c) when in game, play within your limits.
I know i'm not a cardio god, so I don't run up the middle as a gut buster. Find a different way to contribute and go from there.
