Intentionally joule creeping, or joule creeping in general is breaking the rules. FPS limits with a certain weight of BB are used because it's quick and easy, but joule limits were always the goal. If a 0.20g round at 400 FPS equals 1.5j (or close), then 1.5j is the limit, period. Most fields don't have a way, or invest the time to thoroughly inspect guns on every level, but going beyond is still against the rules and doing intentionally makes one a douche-bag, that's never changed. Most players aren't even aware of their guns potential. Some GBBRs have been seen gaining 80 FPS throughout the day, while others have actually grown in FPS with heavier rounds. If you factor in just a few of these things, you could have guns out there ridiculously over the limit. Chrono on versus off, tends to not make that big of a difference, but every gun reacts differently. Some weights make FPS go up with chrono off, and others down. You as the player are responsible for your gun at all times, responsible to know what the field limits are, and responsible to stay within them. The field should do their best to enforce them, but airsoft has always been a game of trust. If I can't trust you, I don't want you on the field, and you shouldn't be.
