2009 CASE STUDY: MAA HIGHER FPS RATES

Post by THE ARCHANGEL » Mon Apr 27, 2009 10:44 am

The MAA is going to run a case study this season to track the FPS trends of our community as it relates to new guns.

For the Summer season of 2009 the MAA is going to raise its FPS rates to 450 FPS with .20BBs. The MAA will record name, manufacturer of the gun, and status (new, old, upgraded, etc) of all players for each Open Session and track the performance of the gun.

We know that many new guns, specifically the Chinese clones, are hotter than our current FPS rate out of the box. What we are hoping to discover is truly what new guns are chronoing at while still letting these players play and collecting evidence that we can use to decide future policy. The intention of this new higher FPS is not to have players upgrade, in fact quite the opposite. We are trying to track new guns but we will be monitoring all players. It should be noted that if players upgrade their guns for our Open Sessions there is no guarantee at all that they will be allowed after our study is done.

SPECIFIC RULES:

• Outdoor FPS Rate: 450 FPS
• All guns must shoot a 3 shot consistent volley under 450 FPS. If a gun cannot do that, it will not be allowed. (i.e. 449, 450, 449 = Legal, 449, 451, 450, 450, 451, 449, 450, 452 – Illegal) All guns MUST shoot a 3 round volley at 450 or under.
• 450 FPS is the hard ceiling. There will be NO “wiggle” room

If you have questions or comments please direct them to me.

* AGAIN, THIS IS A CASE STUDY. OUR INTENTION IS NOT TO HAVE PEOPLE UPGRADING THEIR GUNS, JUST TO ALLOW NEW PLAYERS WITH NEW CLONE GUNS TO PLAY WITH THEM.
