So let me get this straight.... You're mad and are trying to pass it off as me being an imbecile?

Seems legit.

I mean, I can understand me being wrong and all, but at this point you're just being a douchebag.



First off, the Etek 4, Etha, Geo 3, certain iterations of the Reflex Rail and G6R, and the Vapor all came out in 2012.

Also, lower end guns I'm not expecting to drop in price aside from the Mini because that's been going for 4 years, the G3 hasn't even been available for a while, the G4 has seen price drops (I don't remeber when, but from $330 to $300), the Axe is (Hopefully) dropping in price but I don't support it anyway, the DP FX has been ignored enough, I thought the Rev-I dropped from $1000 to $850 (?), the Rail dropped from $300 to $250, and the Reflex Rail is yearly and that has dropped accordingly.
The point is that the guns I listed that came out this year will not drop in price next year. All the drops you mentioned except the Rev-I are minor drops resulting from competition, not drops on the side of the manufacturer. Guns don't need to drop in price from year to year, and they also don't need to be significantly improved from year to year. To suggest otherwise is just moronic.

The thing is though, that Dye DOES have competition in their price level and to re-release the same marker in a new body with a number one digit higher at the same price is all because of competition, but the thing with the competition is that I can expect upgrades. Luxe 1.5 to 2.0 had some noteworthy upgrades and the MacDev Clone VX to the Clone GT had some very noteworthy upgrades. Yes they reset the price, but they actually gave more. That's why I don't care about any DM until the 13, the DM12 did have some notable advances over the DM11, however the DM13 is so close to the DM12 that they would have been better off pulling a planet eclipse and leaving the same marker at the same price instead of making new bodies for 2013 markers.

As long as DLX sold the Luxe, or Luxe 1.5, it cost the same amount. The price didn't drop because the gun got older. You are clearly not understanding what I'm saying. If the price is the same from year to year, which it would be anyway, why not release new millings.

Good point, the entire two years between the Luxe and Luxe 1.5 it didn't drop because of age, but the Luxe 1.5 dropped from $1,650 to $1,500 in early 2011 and stayed there through the release of the Luxe 2.0.

How long did it take the shocker to drop in price? Have any of bl's guns dropped in price over their lifetimes without a new version coming out? Aliens? vanguards? Angels(when they were still around)? Also did dlx have to retool their machines for each year? Redesign cad files for each year? New marketing for each year(not counting years from 1.0 to 1.5, 1.5 to 2.0)? no, they saved money on retooling, redesigning, marketing, etc... Dye has some investment into each yearly release, other companies not doing yearly releases don't have to go through all of the aforementioned costs each year...

The Shocker NXT dropped in price by 2009 because it was dated and showing it's age, that and Smart Parts died. The Angel AR:K dropped from $900 to $770 on ANS in May of 2011. Vanguards, well, I have no idea since I haven't reliably seen them in a US retailer. Aliens are yearly release.

Honestly, Dye would save more money by keeping the DM13 for a few years and just not dropping the price than making a DM14 and retooling to get the price to what the DM13 could have been if what you're saying is true. So, tell me why they don't?

Would they? Again you're talking in specifics and absolutes on the financials of a company that you do not have access to. They don't because they don't want to, maybe they like refreshing the matrix each year, maybe they make more money, we do not know their motives nor does it matter what their motives are. The fact of the matter is that they should not be hated as a company when they aren't even doing anything wrong.

DYE's perspective: if the system that has brought the company continued profits, don't change it. Thats exactly what they are doing

I never said that I hated the company, that's where you're wrong.

Honestly, if they did with the DMs what they did with the i4s they'd probably be able to rake in just as much, maybe even more because you could purchase a DM without expecting the resale to go down $400 before the next season even starts. Yes they're releasing new "2013" colors of the i4 for a little bit extra, but they aren't calling it an i5.

Ahhhh an intelligent post. Completely wrong though. Not at all my argument. No where did I say or even imply that DYE was a bad company. I said people are upset with their annual practices. I said continuing of that practice COULD eventually lead to some of their customer base leaving.
BL releases different milling options of the same G6R. Its advertised as a new mill NOT a new gun. That's equivalent to DYE releasing different graphic anno jobs for their DMs. Did you hear me complain about that? No you didn't. Your attempt to debate me is completely off base.

To argue my point that I have been trying to make but has been overlooked is that dye isn't releasing a new gun. They are releasing a new year of the matrix. It's still a matrix, same gun. As I had said earlier the nt was a new gun, rail new gun, slg new gun, dm4 - 13 not a new gun, just new models of the same gun, sometimes improved, sometimes not. That is the whole basis of my argument

Alright. I can roll with that.
My point is just that people are upset that they continue to do that; release a new year of the Matrix instead of actually change it up internally somehow. I can understand their point of view and agree with it to some extent. But in the end everyone's opinions on the matter will differ.

Have the gun companies exhausted all technology besides "fantasia" like gun control??

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.
