Better gear pushes the limits of the game, and makes it more competative. We don't use acting or role playing, to us it's a competitive, tactical, combat sport. If your trying to ambush or shoot your friends then high end guns, tactics, and gear is and will remain the most effective way to do that.
agreed but if your not a sore looser youll have just as much fun gettin yer butt kicked by the "uber 1337" tacticool guys as youll have when u actually put up a good welp organized fight and come out ahead of the other team, plus for the most part at skirms we just play use our respawsn secure or escort or whatever is the goal and then reset and go for the next objective or what have you no one really "keeps score" we just play have fun and at the end poke fun or boast to eachother like "hey remember when you wer behind that building and we/i got you from way over by that car, that was awesome" type stuff not "oh we kicked yer asses you guys suck" cause we all know that even the best, most seasond players become vitim to luck and chances taken by "noobs" and get our asses handed to us by the new guys when based on experiance and equipment we definately should have had an easy time of "beating" the other team.
and we learn from those things just like the new guys get beter with every outting.
again as i cant stress enough at the end of the day 90% of us are out to get active and have a fun time shooting our friends and aquaintences.
we are grown ass men (most of us) who like to play soldier on the weekend and its all in good fun.
