As for the environment: The paint and gelatin from regular balls doesn't exactly work wonders on trees either. I suspect that the residue left on surfaces by regular paintballs (i.e. on stop signs) is the same as left by FS rounds, there's just more of it (to up the density).
I do not think they will ever replace normal paintballs, in terms of close range. There will always be a market for close quarter games. Fsrs will not provide virtually any advantage under 50 ft and barely any at 100. In fact they will never be a 10bps >3 second round, due to mag limitations. Not including a box mag for fsrs, but fields will likely not allow a fsr filled box mag. In terms of consistent rapid fire, hoppers have fsrs beat. I am OK with this, oblong rounds should be used for long range shots and have a minimum engagement distance of 100 feet. My .02
"The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: Is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey, don't worry, don't be afraid ever, because this is just a ride." And we ... kill those people." - William Melvin Hicks
