ISN'T AN OPTION!
How stubbornly obtuse and dim-wittedly backwards are you people? Okay, not all of you people. You know, only the ones who insist that there is any difference between ramping and so-called semi-auto in today's electronic markers. You people make my eyes bleed and the ends of my hair frizz and smoke as if my head had just been shoved into an industrial furnace.
Look, it's very simple. You can debate until you're blue in the face the relative merit and skill of shooting semi-auto but the simple fact is you aren't shooting semi-auto. Ever. A tiny fraction of you may honestly believe you are--in which case you took great care to set up your marker to ensure it only discharges one shot per trigger pull. (At least as best you can tell.) Except of course you're pulling the trigger isn't what shoots your gun. And at least two of the major gun makers factory software is coded to add shots. (I'm already skirting the boundaries of my no gear talk rule so don't bother asking which gun makers because I have no intention of responding to that question. Nonetheless it's true.) The rest of you semi-auto fans set up your markers to give you a bit of an assist. Nothing special, of course. Just a setting in the sweet spot where suddenly your "skill" is optimized--and blazing fast. The lowest debounce you can go without bouncing like a bucket of Mexican jumping beans on a hot skillet. You might even admit to noticing the occasional bounce but ... ramping is the devil's handiwork. Give it a rest. The effects are identical and the only actual distinction is how efficiently your marker adds shots.
Seriously I'm fine with you semi-auto rampers. Live and let live, I say. But please, for the sake of my sanity and the common good, enough with the holier-than-thou attitude and the endless hypocritical caterwauling. I would recommend you educate yourself but I honestly find it hard to believe that more than a handful of y'all don't know exactly how your gun works and you spend way too much time lying to me in the hopes you might come to believe your own horseapples.
And if that doesn't do the trick I invite you to a NPPL event--for as long as they last--and you can come and listen and watch as players using one finger turn their semi-auto markers into instant machine guns in the blink of an eye. Time and again. The skill on display is positively breath-taking. The only reason the league capped their "semi-auto" guns is because it was the only way to pretend to regulate rate of fire. This way nobody shoots over 15 bps and nobody cares how they get there.
Grow up, smarten up or simply shut up. I don't have that much hair left.
