So far the caveats seem to be:

Gaming with folks you trust
Proper gear

Never thought about mechbox wear and tear, tho those with PTWs shouldn't have that issue...

I like the idea, in the right place with the right people.

I've always thought responsible snipers should be allowed
a much greater fps advantage than 50fps over an auto AEG,
so this would be an interesting opportunity.

Should be fine for those with spring/gas bolt actions too. Hrmm... Escort guns also come to mind, along with the new WA M4.

BT, excessive wear and tear always plagues airsoft population in coutries with high FPS limit. People live with that by swaping pretty much everything right out of the box. That's what happens back home. Limits go up to around 550FPS there. Another thing that players from old country implemented is special rules for support weapons. LMG's have higher minimum engagement distance and higher FPS than regular AEG's.
I'm not sure about V2 boxes but V3 CA and VFC shells can handle 450 no problem.

It all comes down to trust. Trusting the other guys not to blind fire or hose. If this type of game were to happen, I'd like to see semi only at least for the first part of the day and evaluate from there. Obviously if you're using LMG's then there would be an exception. Full face protection or at least a mouthguard should be required as well. Anyone else agree?

I agree with the semi only for the first bit.

If the point of the hot guns was to make people act more realistically, maybe there should be a real cap limit as well?

If the game was with people I trust, I feel that face protection should be optional, but strongly recommended.

If there was such a game in my area, I'd be up for it.

EDIT: A softer shooting secondary should also be required, for use in close quarters (moving from the outside in to sweep a building).

Yup, thought about it too, again, with the right people and not indoors. Real load outs, hot guns, MilSim... let's see if we can make something happen this summer.

i would just use a Tanaka Kar98k, since it shoots over 450 on a warm day, but use heavy BBs, like .30 or .34 (i think Bastard said they were going to make some). god i cant wait till that happens and i get my mauser.

Hey wait a second

This smells of "Elitism" , what if someone can't afford to upgrade their guns to this level, what if they can't afford the required gear.. Is it fair to exclude them?

Why can't we all just play to the lowest common denominator?

( by the way... I'm all for it, make it so )

Nobody is excluding anybody for having a weapon that shoots lower - we have people now running stock TMs and CAs playing with others running right at 400. I see this as simply another set of game and safety rules set by the host. (Can't see smileys right now at work - apologies if I miss sarcasm here.)

If you want pain, get some jumpercables to a car battery and gently caress your nipples.

As for a 490fps game... It better be a good and honest group of people. Too many new players coming to games with hot guns and cheating too... quite sad to see those ex-paintball players on the field

I played at QuickPass 3 last summer with my BA at 550 fps.

I didn't hear a single complain about it. In the end, it all comes down to know both your people and your guns.

Actually, I had a few guys lining-up behind my rifle to try it after the game...:P

I am all for it. Realistic respawns are a must too. A single rifleman does not POP out of no where at war. Need at least 4-5 guys, maybe more.

Unless, unless it's absolute chaos!!!!

But yes, realistic spawns would be lovely.

"Gaming with folks you trust
Proper gear"

there are lots of guy old and new going to games and not calling there hits. it does not only discourage me from going out to games now but discourages me from taking part in this sport.
i'am all for 490 fps or higher. my thought is if it hurts more people call there hits so it is not followed up with another 10 rds ect.

for the people that have a hard time calling out they they are hit. i have no problem unloading on you until you do so. it might hurt but in the end its your reputation at stake, and people talk and you make a name for your self.
if people want to play like they are unstoppable they should stick to computer games with cheats.

this is sport for all not just one person. thinking so will only ruin it for every one and you may find this sport with out the older generation playing if it keeps on happening. sorry for my rant. if this is going to happen it should be equal for every one of course.
