[color=#ff00ff]I don't condone them because they are cheap. Ramping takes no skill. Walking a trigger to 15 bps takes actual skill believe it or not. You actually have to work to keep it up. Ramping requires little to no work to keep up, just hit the trigger a few times a second. If you try to walk a trigger in semi, most are lucky to hit 12 bps tops. Few can get up to 15 bps, very few can get higher than that in semi. It isn't easy. Plus you have far more control over your BPS in semi then you do ramping.
Ah, thanks for that. But ... ramping isn't a mode the RT supports, mhmm? It takes subtle pressure and a steady tension in your trigger finger to maintain a certain ROF and you can do really controlled bursts. The trigger stop mentioned above is just like capping the trigger movement, so it won't go past a certain point, it doesn't do the job for you completely. You still have to estimate the sweet spot for whatever ROF you want. Most of the time, I don't go full auto, but short controlled bursts. And still, if I don't time it right and if I don't hold my finger right, I get nothing. So there still is skill involved. It's just different then walking a trigger.
I've seen ramping in action and I've held an EGO, when a friend of mine wanted to show/explain me that firing mode. It felt strange - because not my trigger pulls resulted in shots, but it shot on it's own. I felt out of control. That's definately not my ticket.
Concerning the pump part - I play pistol secondary. It's not about spray and pray, it's aiming and tactics. Good snap shooting, fluent movements ... I like that.
So, I can relate to you, kind of.
