HOT GAME - OPINIONS PLEASE

I am curious what the community thinks about attending a "hot" game.

I am thinking anything up to 490 to avoid going over 500FPS

My reasoning here is that some games are less than realistic from a tactical perspective because people are doing things they would never do if they knew they were going to get really hurt i.e.:

Peek a boo
Long runs across open ground with no supporting fire
Rambo charges

etc


Let er rip....

I have often thought this would be an interesting thing to try...with the right group of people.

Agreed with Lawdog... I wouldn't want to play with just anybody. Location would be a contributing factor - playing at a field where the standard engagement range is under 100ft due to layout and terrain would probably not tickle.

I think theres a difference between playin a "hot" game and playing to inflict pain. There's a certain level which I don't mind having a hot gun pointed at me. However. When Engagements start getting close quartered, 490FPS is gonna hurt like a royal SOB. Thats were secondaries should definatly be used.

You have to remember with this is that people play airsoft for fun. Not to go out and get hurt (unless you have a fetish for that stuff.

Another thing is realism relies on who you play with. If you play with a bunch of guys who act like paintballers trying to charge across the field firing two guns at everything that twitches then yeah it's gonna suck if you want sim-like play. However if you play with teams that actually like sim's and conducting themselves as a combat-like unit then your gonna have fun.

id like to do it, but youd need the right guys. guys that arent out there to hurt you, but out there for the same reason you are. i find i do stuff that i wouldnt normally do because im not afraid of getting hit, or i know that i can dodge the rounds.

490 fps wouldn't hurt too much. I would be more worried about mechbox failure.

If I had the gun for it I'd like to try it. Although, it would probably be better to try a game at 450fps first and see whether more or less fps is desired/safe.
What about sniping weapons? What kind of muzzle velocity restrictions would you want on those?
