I'd just like to point out that NF3 was sold out in 7 minutes.
While one factor does not a game make... I think there's more to the game being so popular than the awesome group of guys running it, or the caliber of players that show up. There's a lot of things going right at these games. From loadout rules to the type of action and pace that the game moves at.
One would be pretty unwise to ignore all the factors that contribute to the overall success of the NF3 formula.
The preferences of the organizers in the play style they may enjoy show up as game aspects that seemingly 388+ people really wanted to be a part of.
Food for thought.
I futz with V2s, V3s and V6s. I could be wrong... but probably, most likely not, as far as I know.
