from my understanding of it, they wanted to be different from everyone else. There are alot of empire sponsored teams and not so many with sys X. Therefor they will stand out more.

we will be using the system x nme's. Also much of the clothing and gear we will have some input as to the designs and look of every thing. So watch for system x to produce some stuff that is very functional as well as sick lookin. Avalanche should also have their own line of gear and cloths in the near future.

it was a smart business move, and for some who can't see past the "bling'n" empire gear, they think it was a stupid move.


I however see it as a large step forward for paintball. the sooner players start getting paid, the sooner paintblal will become a recognized sport.

I can understand Lanches motivation for the move EMpire has tons of sponsored teams moving to System X lets them stand out more plus $$ always helps

I'd rather wear my OWN line of clothing with designs made by the team than some mass produced jersey/pants that every other team is going to have.

who cares?

neither empire or system x comes up with their own ideas, they just steal them from others.

They didnt just drop Empire, they dropped all NPS cept for MAYBE goggles? Which I'm sure system X will be coming out with soon.

I hate people who post negative stuff, but seriously, Avalanche will be the laughing stock of the 2005 season.

Normally the bandwagon is doing the right thing, Empire gear is just better, that's what the bandwagon says, and the bandwagon is right. EVERYBODY has it because of a reason.

They're both great sponsors. That's the way I look at it.

First off have you shot an NME? My NME is as fast or faster than any timmy on the field here and second i am sure they didnt just decide hey we'll shoot those with out trying them first. They are still sponsored by warped and from what i have heard(just rumors at the moment) but there is supposed to be a dark NME out.

Wow...I'll have to hook up a knock off Timmy, I mean NME, because Lanche is going to shoot them. I mean they only cost $100-150 more than comparable Intimidators with a more dubious record of quality and reliability.
