The introduction of resistive elements in gaseous detectors has been a real breakthrough, since it provided them with auto-triggering capabilities, spark protection and long term stability. Though, it adds a limitation on the maximum flux of particles that can be measured without efficiency loss, and this is of major relevance both for the operation of the experiments at the High Luminosity LHC, and for the design of the detection systems at the next generation of accelerators. Therefore understanding how to optimize rate capability without losing other benefits will be of paramount importance. Here the latest results about rate capability of various kinds of gaseous detectors will be presented, and compared to a mathematical model able to describe the complex processes taking place in gaseous detectors operating at high rate. Also the implications of the insights gained during this study on the design of the future generation experiments featuring gaseous detectors will be discussed.
