I think calls are over stated. Unless you are a total dope and discussing your gameplans right next to the opposing team the calls don't mean all that much just because they aren't wildly complicated in what the calls accomplish. I see your point but I mean, other major sports do it and it doesn't become an issue. Almost every team uses some iteration of West Coast or Texas calls anyway.

I think there are more cons to developing a pairing system than there are pros. Like I said, it's cool Virtue has gone the distance and is doing a release with this technology, but it's going to take more interesting use cases than, "my marker tells my hopper when to spin wirelessly" to get more players and vendors interested in investing in this tech.

I kind of wonder if players are ready for this level of technology, really, in practice, or if it'll just be the 1% of 1% of players, high level tournament guys, running it. There have been several jumps in technology that have hit the market, only to wind up getting "dumbed down" because players didn't like how it operated in reality. In spite of being better, those bits of tech fell to the wayside in favor of "good enough".

Also, built in Chronograph lol.

There is really so much that can be done that has the potential to make the game a lot better.
Built in chronograph was already done on the GI Pulse RDR...it went over like a lead balloon unfortunately...

The RDR Pulse from the chrono standpoint was awesome. It was just the rest of the loader that was total ****. The chrono on mine is always within a few fps of virtue clocks.

Yup, I still have 2 GI Pulse RDRs that I keep just to use for the Chronograph (thanks Nick Slowiak!)

I don’t even think the loader design was all that bad it just released with a ton of problems. Thin plastic being the major one.

The first handful of these will be delivered before the weekend. So depending on where you are, you may be able to catch a glimpse of one.

There are some pretty cool features that are built in and can be managed with the app.

Depending on when you first heard of Virtue, you may think of us as a circuit board company. Or maybe the company that makes the Spire. Well the Ace + Spire IV is the best product we've ever made and is the culmination of what we've made our name on. I'm pumped on the Ace, and I'll give more information once I'm caught up.

For us with X's already can we just get the board? I also own a Cntrl loader, any plans on implementing this feature in them?

That’s great news! Super pumped to see what the ACE and spire 4 are capable of. I’ll def keep a look out this weekend in hopes someone at my field got one. I definitely will he picking up a spire 4 tho when they are available. Any word on pricing for just the new spire?

Company's come a very long way, and there's a lot of great products out of the Virtue team.

You mean cheater modes?

Like pull the trigger 3 times and you get 15 BPS for the breakout then when you stop it reverts back to 10.3 BPS?

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.
