I honestly think PE dropped them. I would have long ago. Wouldn't want a team using my markers to be getting stomped all the time.

No PE didn't drop them. So rumors swirl about Empires new high end. Dynasty has a contract with PE that they cant leave. They leave empire. Empire is telling its teams either they shoot the high end or you leave cause there going to promote there high end. Empire coughed up more cash than PE so there you have it. I said this was going to happen when dynasty left PE. No way Empires gonna have a high end and not have all there teams shooting it. Were talking about Empire here.

Jack Wood himself commented on PBN and said "very sad to see vicious leave". PE didn't drop them Empire made them leave.

They should rename every team to Empire 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 and so on and so on.

Ah not really. You got infamous and now Vicious. I guess you could count XSV they wear JT but JT is made by Kee so same shit. Other than that there is no other full head to toe empire sponsor.

i talked with vicious's general manager today at the store, as it says in the pic they will be shooting VICIOUS AXES for 2013.


Empire has not said a word about the new gun. Nothing nobody knows shit. DO you really think they will put out a poster saying they will be shooting whatever the new gun is? Hell no but when this thing does come out you cant really think Empires not gonna make them shoot it. If its a high end that would be like marketing suicide.

i'm glad they are using the super freaks instead of the CP kits. the vicious CP kits didn't look good at all and the smallest bore was .684 largest was .694 i don't like the switch from ninja soo much, but that's just kind of a all or nothing deal with them going primary. i'm going to show them my foregrip extender and see what they think, but i doubt empire will want them using them.

i didn't say anything about the vanquish, i talked with jake topping directly, they are shooting axes, not all sponsors force you right away to buy their newest stuff, look at PE vicious was shooting all ego's with one or two shooting geo 2.1's when the geo 3 came out they all tried it and some switched some didn't.and unless they have the vanquish ready to go they will not be shooting it atleast early 2013 because they are all signing contracts NOW not when it comes out.

as of RIGHT NOW vicious is shooting limited edition vicious axes. that is a fact. anything else you want to speculate about the vanquish which may or may not even come out is all rumors and crap, and this is the news thread and the vanquish is not in this news post.

you sir are making assumptions and talking out of your ass and i don't appreciate you jumping on me for something i didn't say and only confirming what HAS BEEN RELEASED.

as long as they are shooting empire they really don't care too much.

Yeah I was assuming you understood I meant when the new empire gun comes out. I was not jumping on you was just stating common sense. The ego and geo argument does not apply. Both those guns are the same price. The axe is $400 and this new gun if it is a highend will no doubt he $1000 plus. No way empire would allow any of its teams to shoot axes when that comes out. As far as Jake again nobody has said shit about this gun. You could be his bestfriend but if your sponsor tells you not to say anything you don't say anything. Infamous has already been snapped testing this gun. No doubt vicious will too now.

Chill buddy I wasn't jumping on you and I was not talking out of my ass. Im saying the same thing I said when dynasty left. Its because this new gun.

so dye should have dropped CEP long ago, right? Paintball is a business, whoever coughs up the dollar bills gets to dress the "athletes" in their brand from head to toe. Good pick up for Empire, they have a huge following. sucks for PE, the vego / vgeo were cash cows. I thought they looked like poop, but most people liked them.

You try going from D1 to pro...you would get killed your first few years too. Its a HUGE skill level jump. So vicious will end up getting better as they play pro so PE did not drop them because they were not winning that is bullshit.

IKR, Vicious is a pretty good team haha. They had some pretty good upsets this year. Looking forward to seeing them play this year, even though I don't think them dropping pe was good for the franchise.

Professional paintball is a business and switching to Empire likely made the most business sense, they were already sponsored by empire, and all this did was change what gun they were going to use. While its sad to see the end of Vicious Egos and Geos, I already own my Vicious Geo 3 so that doesn't effect me. The fact that Vicious has made a business change doesn't effect how I view the team. If you stop being a fan of Vicious because of this, then you weren't much of a fan anyways.

If you want to get sponsored, present yourself as a mature adult, not a four year old with a crayon.

How many times did they make it to Sunday last season? In terms of the paintball community, sure they are awesome players, 1000x better than I'll ever be. But as far as pro teams are concerned they haven't being doing overly fantastic. They started to look better as the season progressed last year but hopefully that continues for them.

Rumors say they are.

If they bring semi-pro back, it, and the pro level should use a relegation system similar to the Millennium series and Premier League soccer. Still have the D1 winner move up to semi-pro, but then the top 2 or 3 teams in semi-pro replace the bottom 2 or 3 teams in the pro bracket. Not 100% sure how it works in the Millennium series, but I think it would be helpful for teams like Aftershock, Thunder, 187, and CEP so that their development into competitive pro teams isn't as painful as Vicious's was when they first went pro, and CEP's has been since they moved up.

Back to the Vicious sponsor switch, I really want an Axe Pro with this anno:

I never claimed to be better than them, or good at paintball for that matter. "Buddy"

Also, cut the tough guy act, its a freaking forum not a grade school playground.
