Rule exemptions or special treatment are not acceptable, in full agreement there. The DMR class is such a useless thing, I'm glad it's getting abolished. Unless there were some clear reason for it. Let's say adding 30 - 50 FPS had a massive range advantage, and then you were limited to an appropriate DMR class of rifle and optic, bipod, etc, and your gun was pinned for semi auto. Okay, then you're doing something constructive, but I played a DMR style for years under the same FPS restrictions as anyone else. Just having more FPS is pointless. Having a bolt action or single pull rifle, with heavily increased FPS and heavier rounds can sometimes be okay.
I like technology because it pushes airsoft in more dynamic directions. Playing night games was fun, but now there may be a full squad equipt with high end NV and it changes the whole thing, makes it much more competitive. Vehicles, thermal, pyro, comms, etc, it's all very cool to me. If someone invented an airsoft gun that could shoot a 6mm BB over 600 feet, and under the same FPS limits that we still all use, I'd buy it. There will always be a few people who can't afford to come along for the ride, but that's just its nature. There are players who can't afford a reliable gun, or good camo and they stick out like a sore thumb, that doesn't mean we should all wear jeans and run crap.
ďREALITY IS LIKE A STONE. TO MANY ITíS HARD AND COLD, THEY CANíT HUG IT OR EAT IT, IT ONLY FRUSTERATES THEM AND DOESNíT DO THEM MUCH GOOD. TO OTHERS ITíS STRONG AND DEPENDABLE, YOU CAN BUILD WITH IT, BUILD UPON IT, OR WORK WITH IT, ALSO USE IT TO SMASH PEOPLE IN THE FACE.Ē
