I really can't see vicious shooting axe. After all those years shooting PE, I just cannot see it. Best of luck the Vicious this season.

Can anyone name a team that had success after leaving PE?

XSV went to Alien.
Infamous went to BL for a bit.
Explicit went to MD.

Hopefully it works out for them...

Actually, Infamous was first BL and then switched to PE (back when Lasoya and the Glaze bros were there)... Plus they're shooting Axes and are pretty successful if you ask me!

This is great news. But I'm surprised they dropped eclipse and went with empire.

Yes, I am probably as or more aware of what JT, Empire and KEE are then just about anybody on PBN.

My point is that Vicious and XSV will only have about one piece of equipment in common this season.

I wouldn't say its much of a downgrade when Axe's won the most tournaments last season.

I find it interesting that Empire dumps Dynasty for Vicious. Best of luck to Vicious, they are always exciting to watch!

The Axe won most events? Id say the players won their events.

That's simply not true for the Pro division. Houston Heat won just as many Pro events in one league in 2012 with Luxes as all the Axe teams combined over two leagues.

The NPPL was split with Pro teams winning with KEE guns for the first two events and PE guns for the second two. And Heat won 3 out of 5 PSP events with Dye guns winning once and KEE guns winning once.

Axe
Z2
Reactor 4 regulated tank
(probably) Empire pads

I'd say about all that's probably different will be jerseys, pants, packs, and masks, none of which should make a considerable difference.

i would have assumed xsv used JT pads as well....

the main similarities will be the marker and hopper.

Sad to see the team move away from Planet Eclipse.

But, I guess it's a better deal for the team. Anyways, let's have a good season, Vicious!

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.
