Goddam. The amount of people riding KEE gear's dick is lame.

Sure, Empire stuff looks great and preforms amazing. Personally, I only trust empire loaders and Evil/Premium paint when I'm playing any event.

Still... What's wrong with a little diversity? You don't want to see all pro teams looking like Empire robots? HK is sticking their neck out and stepping up for one of paintball's greatest teams.

Now I'm sure an HK rep or two is lurking here. Based on many player reactions HK will soon realize that they need to conduct themselves more professionally, especially now that they are intertwined with the Dynasty name.

Or we can see Greenspan and Lang competing to see who can do a strikeout the fastest in some super hype loud swag bro gear.

I'm...currently indifferent about this move for sponsorship. I think a better deal could've been made with another company to include masks and paint but who knows what HK is gonna come out with next and I've always loved the flashy look of all their gear.

HK have come a long way from selling headbands and t-shirts. It's refreshing to see a company growing as much as they have.

i wonder what they will protect their faces with? or what will they shoot back at people? HK makes some great products but you cant play paintball without paintballs!

**** sponsorships. they will wear what they damn well please. so stupid for every team to go out and get "sponsored". That is what I liked about paintball, the customization of guns, masks, and gear. Each player likes it their own way.

Even if a team is not sponsored by a company who doesn't make all the equipment needed to suit up every weekend, they will still have markers to shoot and whatnot. They will use what they like. Or they just get another mini-ship from a marker company

Yes, because a pro team wearing apparel from a particular company will suddenly change everyones perspective about paintball. In fact, you could say the one thing that has been holding back the flood of *******s and cheating in the sport has been Dynasty's KEE/Empire sponsorship. May God have mercy on our souls now that they have dropped it.

i completely understand what you are saying they can use whatever loaders they want and whatever masks but im just curious what paint they will shoot at PSP events its pretty much either GI or KEE and since they are done with KEE i can only imagine they will be shooting GI next year that would only make sense.

correct. dynasty's kee sponsorship kept it all together. paintballers NEVER do/wear what the pros do...

its more about what HK represents then about what dynasty represents. but good work on missing that connection totally

It's really silly to see this much hate stemming from people's irrational dislike for HK. Dynasty is just using some soft gear from a relatively new company. It's not that big of a deal.

They are still sponsored by Planet Eclipse.

Can someone please make an official public announcement that hating HK because you think your "supposed to" is really getting old ? Fight the hipster urge to tell me how lame they are and how much more superior XYZ company is. I would be willing to bet that not 1 out of 100 negative comments posted about them come from people who have ACTUALLY met them and interacted with them. This is a small company that came from nowhere, created a culture and flourished and NOW is a major sponsor promoting and growing the tournament scene. They are well connected to Dynasty and this is a logical business progression for them. As far as Dynasty goes, this ain't their first rodeo. Those boys have negotiated more deals in the last 12 years than 75% of PbNation will ever. At the end of the day, Dynasty will do what it feels is in the best interest of the team and their survival, survival being the key word. How many other self sufficient, non factory teams are playing today that were playing 10 years ago ???

Good solid move for them. KEE seems to be overly demanding, and play by my rules or bust.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
