i don't agree with your first statement but i do pretty much agree with everything else, unless you were talking about the victory as far as a poppit shooting as smooth as a spool.

i think this looks great and has some incredibly cool features that haven't hit this industry yet. Innovation is always hard and scary, but I am glad that Empire had the courage to try something different. 1 Allan key to service? Someone is thinking here. Thats at least as good as good as Dye color coding their o-rings. I hope I get the chance to try this out soon and see how it preforms. I think the Mini and Axe are great guns and hope this pushes Empire into the Big Leagues.

I think they look fantastic in action. Maybe because the weird looking part is the front grip which isnt visible when playing. Just my opinion though...

Is there any more info about the vanquish besides all the some videos of pbnation and the marketing of empire.

It will be good to a have a good review of the Vanquish, The LV1 has some good reviews cause PE has give to people the opportunity to test their new flag ship marker, contrary to Empire, remember "the one who hits first hits twice" and this time PE has done it.

I'm between this and the LV1, cash in hand, but I can wait till the Vanquish is released and I can get feedback from both markers to decide which one to buy.

In this video the shooting is not very consistent or flat, maybe It was the paint used for the shooting.

Went to a psp sponsored tourney today and they asked if anyone had a Vanquish because if they did they weren't allowed to use it because the psp won't allow them! Anyone know what the deal is?

So you went to this event and they just said if you have it you can't use it with no reason? I have to call shens until I hear otherwise. I don't see any reason for it and I highly highly doubt it's an issue with the ramping features on the board.

Said it was something with the board, idk that's why I posted here to see if anyone else heard this!

First thing that came to my mind was infamous uses them, so can't be possible in my mind unless there doing something to work around it?

is there no tournament lock?
That's the only thing i could think that would make a board illegal. I can make my geo2 ramp differently and faster than psp standards and you can use that board fine.

I find that really hard to believe. I would be amazed if empire didn't have the common sense to put tourney lock on a $1500 gun.

Honestly all these people bragging about the gun all the internals are is just a luxe of course its going to shoot smooth. The gun looks like that tippmann gun mixed with an axe with the internals of the luxe.

I hate the gun and I cant see myself trading for one unless the value is below $800 it honestly just isn't appealing and I don't think its going to bring the kind of money people from empire are thinking it will. There are too many other guns that are in that price range that are better. I see the lv1 being better, geo3, and luxe 2.0. I just don't see it

I will give them credit the red looks sick but the gun itself is ugly

This would be a great idea especially for the newer players who are just getting into the sport or New Tournament/Scenario Player or Team looking for a complete kit. This is not something they would NOT lose money on but will put more of their brand out their. I doubt they will do this.


Yes I know "that's why you get sponsors". Ever thought of the players who just want to play in 1 or 2 Tourneys a year or just want to play local events or even just hang with their friends and play this wonderful sport.
see this is what im talking about this would be great. I love an idea like this to help people out and promote people to buy more stuff

I've been a fan of the milling since day 1, but seeing it in person just makes them look even better. Coupled with the way they shoot it's just amazing!

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.
