FPS/power is only a small part of the range and accuracy equation. It is actually easier to make a slower projectile go straight. You wouldn't believe the accuracy you can get out of TM electric pistols at 200 FPS.

Power is irrelevant if you can get a round on target every time you shoot. I play outside with guns shooting around 1 joule (328fps with 0.2g BBs) all the time and never feel at a disadvantage. One notable advantage is that at that power level, you don't have a minimum engagement distance, so you can shoot close range without hurting other players. You don't have to switch weapon or call a freeze/bang bang/whatever. I find that when playing in woodland settings, it is a lot more useful to be able to engage close range than at extremely long range, but then again, that might just be my style of play.
