Can we please get back on topic? I didn't make this thread as anything but what could be the next Ego. I only called it the 13 because I made this BACK IN JUNE and if the gun was going to be released this year, it would have basically been the Ego 13 (even if it were called the Ego whatever-letter/number/symbol-you-want-to put-here).

As for innovation, that's the very reason they stopped releasing yearly markers. Better to release upgraded parts, new colors and/or mills for the current marker than trying to release the same marker with one internal change plus a new milling and calling it the next Ego (whatever). Take a look in the DM13 threads and check out how people are reacting to DYE doing that once again.
To be honest I am not sure why the yearly updates stopped. My previous post was just a few ideas. The CSL sold out a while ago....hmm so they sold well...so no new EGO didn't hurt their sales. Again, just a few more ideas like maybe the EGO line has gone as far as it can go, and the new gun platform really will shot lasers (nothing like vaporizing your opponent). Maybe PE engineers or executives are lazy. Maybe the opposite and the next marker will blow our minds. I simply love their products good job PE, but without yearly releases of everything how am I supposed to get last years marker barely used for half off. Haha.

Its not rocket science. They stated why they were not doing yearly releases. Jack said they didn't want to keep releasing new markers with minimal changes (paraphrasing). Said they don't want to release any more until they have something "worth releasing".
Problem is everyone seems to have this completely off wack thinking that a company has to keep releasing something new every year to make money. NO! They just need to have a solid product that keeps selling.

It's great to see that you saved so much money, dude; maybe you should use the money you saved to go back to school to get an education (Learn how to spell and use correct grammar.)

I don't know if PE guys r lazy, but I know I am. I have owned almost every major brand marker their is. I don't spend a lot of time working on them, I just want to play. I have gotten rid of them all cause they had problems. All that is exept the EGO11 and all my GEO's. I don't do anything to my guns I just pull them out and play. (grease and oil only) The PE guns just keep working, at least they r not lazy.

Only thing lazy that comes to mind when I think about PE is Stewie. But they work him like a dog sometimes.

People hate on Dye for making a new gun but not changing anything, now people are hating on Planet for not coming out with something new(and killing resale). All people can do is patiently wait, because I am sure what ever comes out is ging to be a huge step towards changing everything people hate about the EGO S now.

And I am surprised no one taped up an EGO S at World Cup and walked around to troll everyone on this thread. Would have been nice to see.

Dear Planet Eclipse,

Please come out with a gun with lots of tape so we can all guess what it is.
You might even be able to take parts from old model Egos and hold it together with tape. You don't even have to have it shoot. Just park it on a picnic table and have people take suspicios photos.
P.S.
please come out with a goggle system and hopper so I don't have to buy any other brands products (ecxept Ninja)

So you expect a gun to be able to shoot forever without ever needing to relube it or even occasionally change orings? The only guns truly known for that are tippmann's... Egos are pretty good at it to but you should still take care of it anyways, keep it clean and oiled up. And don't say your other guns had problems, you basically admitted that you were the problem. A DM or Luxe will shoot just as long as an Ego if you take care of them.

This is the thing that's been cracking me up the last couple weeks. Do all the people hating on the DM13 not realize that they just released the DAM? That's something entirely from Dye. Paintball companies aren't THAT big, even Dye and PE, I doubt they have enough people to work on 3 or 4 different guns at once and make major changes to all of them.

Obviously that's partly why PE let the Ego set idle for a little bit. It'd take a lot of work to really make any changes to it, and it's already amazing. So why not let the Ego11 keep selling and update the Geo?


As far as a new Ego I don't know what I could see being changed. It's been around for a long time now, and seems pretty damn refined to me. I really liked the Ego11 I had. It was comfortable, it shot good, PE has my favorite triggers, and I like how the anno feels lol. Having Macroline doesn't bother me at all. I don't notice if a gun has it or not while I'm playing so it's whatever.

Sure enough Dye released DAM... But why release the DM13 when no changes were made?
There is no reason to push the DM13 out when its a DM12 with different milling.

Why do people say things like "ABC gun will work just as good as XYZ gun if you maintain it right"? Of course all things will work the same if you put enough maintenance time into them. The point is to not have to do the maintenance or do as little as necessary.

I agree. The fact is most guns that cost 1200 dollars plus all shoot pretty darn good. I have found the difference being that with the Ego11 and the Geo2's and up; you use them, throw em in your gear bag, pull em out and they fire the same. Over and over again. Anyone can argue with this, but if you have owned different high end guns and a PE in the last 5 years you know what I am talking about.
