You sound like you've just not been lucky in outsmarting your trigger happy hi-capping enemies.
No, actually, outsmarting a "hicapper" is quite easy because they tend to think less.

Yes, going out of bounds or fucking with radios is a way to cheat, but that;s jsut flat out shithead deserve-to-be-banned-forever behaviour.

Hicaps are cheating not only because of capacity but also because your cheating the whole idea of airsoft.

AEG's did a fine job of lameing it up in terms of sounding and being built out of what is crap compared to say, a YE MP5 which (I'm young, forgive me) used be more the standard in airsoft if what I've been hearing is correct.

Not only did TM start churning out plastic sewing machines, they also had to go and pioneer the (I'm pretty sure it was TM that made them mainstream right?) rattling, winding, even sloppier hicap. TM has to go and make a hicao for every model....

So, anyway, it's not getting owned by people with hicaps, it's more when a new guy steps onto the field with his plastic sewing machine AK 47, rattling around with it at his side while he let's off 200 round bursts while the rest of us are off you know....coordinating are way to get the job done (and we can run without sounding like a pack of tictacs).

Seriously, if you're going to do that, why not play paintball? It completely ruins it for me when you got people sitting there twiddling their fingers on the bottom of their mag while letting off hundreds of rounds in full auto at the same time. If you can afford a gun, you can afford a couple of lo caps. 50-80 rounds a mag is GENEROUS as it is. If you must have more, go to midcaps at most. But if your excuse for using hicaps is "it's easier", get the fuck out of airsoft! Airsoft is/SHOULD be about going as all out as possible considering every day that passes with it remaining "legal" is a blessing.

Midcaps work the same as locaps with the spring in the tunnel...they just go longer in the midcaps to fit more bb's.

Personally I'll never use hicaps except when I'm just blowing ammo down the range. I'm a bit restricted on what I use since my KSC HK33 only uses mags from KSC which are only 85 rounds each.

Why should you be banned for listening to enemies radio? It's been going on ever since radio's have been used in real combat.

It is a legit tactic to obtain as much intel on your enemy as possible and VERY realistic to do so, so why you saying you should be banned?

You seem to be all for as much realism as possible, so I'd have expected you to accept listening to your enemy, but yet you say you should be banned......

Just what kinda standards do you play by?

BTW, I'm all for banning people whom go out of bounds to get an advantage on your eneny.

Stay within in the designated area's and use ALL of it to your advantage, like going 25 feet up a tree and listening to your enemy.

There is absolutely nothing that says I cannot do that.

It seem's wearing this up a tree makes me invisible, especially when using black bb's.


I find it very amusing tho, as NOONE has EVER spotted me up there. Have 23 kills from using that tactic.

An I garuantee you I have absolutely no intention in giving up my effective tactics.

So BC_K is a girl?

Sorry if you're not, but it looks like it because of the eyes, and because it looks like the person is wearing eye shadow.

BC_K is wearing ninja eyeliner. Extra stealthy.

Oh, funny story about my old TM Spetz high-cap... I was shooting it one day, just plinking, nothing special... BOOM! Jam. Opened it up, and the gears were misaligned! How the fuck does that happen?! Anyway.. that kinda killed high-caps for me.

haha bc_k you look like a real life anime character, the way your eyes are. almost flat on the bottom and round at the top, if only you had a rediculously large smile and a little tear drop appear above your head.

but i dont condone listening to enemy traffic either, it goes back to the sportsmanship thing. theres no need for it as it doesnt offer much aid, but it causes sore feelings and attitudes, and the causes most people to retaliate in a cheap or underhandedly manner. the goal is to keep it a level playing field, its about your opponent have as much fun and enjoying the game as you.

My King Arms G36 midcap mags (95rd) rattle a bit. Far less than hi-cap, but still a rattle.
