OMG.....Okay, I take a neutral stance on this one.

High-caps : I use them. Anyone who knows me and plays at events with me knows I am extremely conservative with my rounds always. I do not fire full auto for more than 1-3 seconds and winding my mag (as I stated above) takes LONGER TO DO THAN REPLACING A MAG.


It's not that I have a bigger dick than you, it's just a magazine.

lol.

Depending on the game I'll spray highcap noobs back if it warrants it. Though with a 9.6v and my 170 round midcaps, it sometimes doesn't take long.

I think my biggest issue with highcaps is the way the completely change the dynamic of the game. I can't count the number of times a skirmish has come down to a long-range pissing match between people with hicaps who sit back happy dumb and stupid and just hose.

It seriously ruins it for the rest of us not using them.

No it's their duty to go buy some proper mags, it's the SAW gunner's duty to provide suppressive fire.

Pretty much. Doesn't help that some noobs will park themselves down because they are getting showered with rounds and think their brand new cansoft can actually reach their target in that long range pissing match. I remember one guy up at wasaga piss through what must have been a near full highcap but his rounds kept falling 20 feet in front of me. He was hunkered down tight as it would only take a short bursts to keep his head down while I shot his buddies. Ended up rushing him in the open once I took care of his team. Easy kill while he was winding. Lol

Back on the original topic....

yes I guess high caps can jam more then real/low or mid caps... personally I have yet to have one jam although I don't use them to just spray full auto.

Keep in mind whatever you choose all types of mags will require some maintenance once in a while to keep them feeding good.

Also, it accurately conveys my opinion of high-caps.

The problem with some noobs is that they wind as they shoot giving them an unrealistic ammo advantage. If they removed their mags, put them back, wound them then shoot, I wouldn't have an issue with it. The guys who shoot, take cover, wind then proceed to shoot again. I don't have issue with.
totally agree with this !

you are gonna want to lube your mags to keep them feeding well. There are some other things you can do (more for the larger mid caps) when the spring get weak and no longer feed every BB but that's all really for another topic other then the question in the original post

see this problem is the PLAYERS, not the mags, this is like saying guns are bad because people shoot people with them
I use an MP44 and they only have Hicaps, but I fire in either semi or bursts shorter than 5 rounds, but ZOMG HICAP I R TEH NUBSAUCE@@@

Very true, you could be using mid caps and hosing with it, If we all switched to real caps we could hose then because we could out of ammo too quick :P

I keep hearing this argued over and over and over, yet my experience in the field says that when people have hicaps, they play like fucking nobs.

I'll start supporting this argument when I actually see players using hi-caps like normal magazines. Hasn't happened yet.

And your MP44 is also a moot point -there are no standard mags for it. I'm talking about the people who go out into the field with 10 G36 hicaps or something completey retarded as that. One game I was at a guy had 12 -yea, that's twelve- AK hicaps. That is beyond stupid.

I'm not saying everyone should use realcaps. I don't use them myself. But hicaps, for all tense and purposes, completely eliminate any need for trigger or ammo control.

Perhaps, but that may just be n00bs in general. I would gladly trade my hi-cap for some low caps......any takers
