is it the player or does the LUXE makes the player?

hey guys, a ref at a local field is telling everyone that the LUXE makes the player but everything i know, a few local players, even a guy who runs a pro shop says he's crazy and its not the gun its the player so the only question is, when your using the LUXE is it 80ish% LUXE and 20ish% player or is it the 80ish% player and 20ish% LUXE? just a heads up he is a member on the nation but i wont tell y'all his username

It's true. When I see a Luxe at my field, I just go home.

You air up your marker, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed that test, that your girlfriend broke up with you, or that you got a ticket on the way there... your world is right for the next couple hours,... this is your heaven on earth.. live it.. love it.. play it.. Paintball.

98% percent of ballers wipe, if your part of the 2% that has some sense of honor add this to your sig

Do it, I just get players like that to waste their paint on me. Just stick my head out and dodge the paintballs while singing, "I like making people waste their paint, I like making people waste their paint." This does end up helping you snap shot, or at least the snap part...

This is probably just a troll thread and I shouldn't even be responding, but here goes (in case the thread starter is even half serious):

The answer to any % Gun vs. % Player skill question is that it is always the player's responsibility to use the equipment effectively. A $100 Spyder using decent paint can eliminate just as many people as a Luxe in the right hands. Conversely, a noob with a Luxe w/ Rotor and 1100 paintballs on his back will still have just about zero chance against a veteran pump player who walks on the field with 50 paintballs.

It's not the gun, it's the player.

(And Luxes are no better than the other high-end guns 2/3 its price.) Personally, I'd never own such an ugly space-dildo. But that's just me. Cheers!

Hee hee, nothing wipes the smile off a guy with a Luxe's face faster than getting gogged with a mech Spyder-clone. Greatest feeling ever.
I'd tweak the statistic a little and say 85% player, 15% gun. Going up against someone who can shoot 15 bps with a few pulls of the trigger is a little bit harder than when that person has something that shoots one shot per pull, at a much slower and inconsistent rate. As the markers get more and more rapid-shooting, the stats get closer.

Does not matter the marker, what matters is the guy behind the trigger. I've taken out guys with the Luxe with my Alpha Black; a good gun gives an advantage, but skill gives the greatest advantage of all.

Wowsa I don't know what a Luxe is... but I'm assuming from the comments its about as ugly as a Shocker...



I took out 6 people and won a Free for all my last game, and I wasn't using any Luxe...

So I'm assuming its the player...

Or I have a Luxe built into me somewhere...

What's a Luxe again?

The Luxe definitely allows some players to be sloopy on basic gun skills because of its features.
