I agree with HackD, there is an elitist/snob attitude towards high caps; and I'm one of the guilty on occasion. These things go both ways though, and there is another extreme group at the other end from elitist. As I stated before, game rules are game rules; HackD pretty much said the sane thing. The problem is with people who don't understand the other side. I myself don't like high caps, but have shared the field with high caps because the field/event allowed them. What grinds my gears is the people who show up to an event/field that does not allow them and complains. I've been to events where realism or extreme effort to give it as many realistic twists have been painstakingly added, and people complain. I hate hearing these complaints; "my gun only has high caps", "I can only afford high caps", "you guys are elitist pricks", "having magazine changes doesn't make sense", etc, whatever, etc. I have never complained at an event I've attended where the rules don't suit me; I just play by the rules out of respect. I do often see "the other extreme" complaining because it doesn't suit them. Bottom line is if your at an event, and your gear or equipment doesn't meet the minimum requirements, then that event is not for you. The event isn't wrong, and neither are the organizers; you are! And of course vice versa, you have to be fair and have mutual respect. My opinion is if the events you attend don't suit your needs, then don't attend; just don't bitch about it. And nobody gives a shit if you can't afford, don't have time, etc. play elsewhere! Find people like you and start a team, hold events, whatever.
