Well, according to ASC alost nobody uses hicaps... of course, I see tons of them on the field.
I have no issue being an anti-highcap elitist snob. The fucking things encourage piss-poor gameplay. Go to a match where 70% of players are running hicaps and you'll see what I mean.
There *used* to be a third type of airsoft game that sat somewhere between a day of pick-up skirmish games and milsim, where ammo and camo rules were enforced but it stopped short of being full blown milsim games (I called these scenario games). Other than milsim games very few hosts seem to enforce any type of ammo limit anymore.
I don't play much these days but I still avoid games with no ammo restrictions.
