for those who don't know what im talking about, a VS thread is like
(Insert any marker here) vs (Insert any marker here)
It's starting to become kind of a problem here in the DP forums haha. but in all seriousness, they need to stop.
Not only is it against PbNation and DP forum rules, but VS threads tend to get very off topic and usually end in a very mean and heated argument between two or more people with lots of flaming...
We all want to be friends here. So keep them out of here!
"Well Ryan, I just asked which gun is better, and if i should keep mine thats not a VS thread!"
Any thread where the OP is asking or inciting people to compare and contrast two different markers is a VS thread.
-G3/G4 or The Axe
-Rev-i vs Geo
-Keep my Etek? or get a Shocker?
-Up my ego8 or get an ego10?
-What should i get? Threshy or Rev-i
-Which is better? Fx or Ego 9
Everyone has their own opinions on which marker they like better, and no one can change it no matter what. It's just their preference.
When choosing a marker, look at the things it comes with, how it feels to you, price, options and upgrades and it's specs. and decide which is best for YOU. For example:
-If you like the feel of a G3, like the raps and trigger, but need 12.5 ramp and dont mind spending an extra 130 on a board, then get the G3.
-However if u like the feel of a Geo better, and dont like the RAPS, and want a PSP ready marker and want a little field "prestige", get the Geo.
-You need to look at you're current situation. If you previously owned a tippman, you may not need to get a Luxe, an E1 may be just fine for you.
-If you're looking to play PSP 3 ramping, but dont want to dish out the extra $100 on a new board, a stock G3/G4 may not be the gun for you.
-If you play only like once or twice a year, an E1 or a spyder will do you just fine.
-If you're tight on money and still want performance, but like poppets, then an Etek, FX or an older Ego may be your marker.
-If you have big hands and hate small guns, a Mini may not be your favorite marker.
The examples go on and on.... The better marker depends on what YOU want and how YOU personally like each one
Instead of posting up a "Marker A vs Marker B thread", do a little research on what spec's you may prefer in a gun, go to a field/shop and ask someone if you can hold or even test shoot the gun to see which marker YOU like better instead of asking other people about which one they like better.....
Asking other people by posting a VS thread, which marker is better is pointless and will get you no where. People will just tell you which one THEY like better.
It's just like asking people why they chose their car. Some people prefer need a pick up truck for work, and some just have a long commute so they need something efficient, some people are too large to fit in a Chevy Malibu, so they need something bigger. Asking people what care they got and why isnt going to help you pick out a car for yourself, you have to try out different ones to see which is right for you!
Hopefully people will read this so i dont have to post this whole shpeal in every VS thread created
If you read this whole thing, you just got 10% smarter than u were before!
