Well teams of that caliber won't be paying for markers. The companies make money off of them shooting markers. I guarantee you Alien got a lot more consideration from buyers when they heard XSV was shooting them. The publicity that the axe is going to get is going to be absolutely ridiculous. Since it's a sub $500 mid-end marker. A whole bunch of people that would not even think about shooting a marker in the class of an axe will now say, "well if XSV is shooting them, I definitely can, and I will save a lot of cash." Than all of the kids that have smaller budgets deciding between markers in that class, like the Spec-R, Etek 3, Invasion, ETC, will now say " XSV shoots the axe, that has to be the best choice." These thoughts aren't neccesarily true, but it's sponsoring a team like XSV is just good marketing and will hype up the marker they are shooting greatly. Empire obviously offered them a hell of an endorsement to shoot those markers.
