Even then the elitist term wouldn't apply in my opinion. Now if they were to use the fact that they have exactly replicated a military unit as a way to ridicule someone or make themselves feel like a better player for it then thats when elitist should be thrown around. Being an elitist is not defined by the gear you wear, the guns you shoot or whatever. Its an attitude, a state of mind. A false sense of superiority over issues that have no bearing on how "good" a player.
