I’ve know Nick a long long time. He has been more of an ambassador for the sport than 98% of people who have or will ever put on a mask or touch a marker. The fact that he was having a light hearted joke back and forth ON THE F*Cking INTERNET does NOT warrant being a little ***** and crying to his boss, sponsors or anyone else for that matter. If you are so easily triggered, you need to walk away from paintball and frankly, the internet as a whole. Jesus Christ dude. Go out, get laid, have a Coke and a smile, WHATEVER you have to do.

Thanks Nick, going to go as far out of my way as possible to never buy from empire/GI again.

Sent a email to your sponsors about this.

Crappy products and snarky customer support is a quick way to go out of business. And let’s not even talk about my mask lenses that disintegrate or regulator that decided to shoot metal shavings or the SYX inventory that won’t move in a strong economy.
The only Empire/GI product I own at this point is my Flex Ize from almost 20years ago. Guess its time to get rid of that as well. Nick Slowiak shouldn't be representing anyone or anything. Already emailed his sponsors.
I think its hilarious u kids talking **** about Nick Slowiak. u wouldnt say this **** to him at the field, hes jacked. not only that but he wears the freshest clothes, eats at the chillest restaurants and hangs out with the hottest dudes. yall are pathetic lol.

And as far as customer service from gi. I’ve had nothing but stellar service from their techs and products I’ve owned.

I work for GI. Thanks for the compliment. I try.

What did you think your comment on the Syx looking like a sex toy or dildo was going to get as a response? Don't come on pbnation and post like that without being able to take a response.

We're giving full Customer support on the Syx and there will be a full press release for all those with non 1.5's.

If you want to talk about a lens your having issues with you can always message me. I'd prefer Facebook. Anyone of our websites has links for equipment that has issues. Paintballsolutions.com is also a great resource.

I can't speak to metal shavings in your reg but if that happened then I'm sure it would get resolved, email [email protected].

Thanks

You only show up when new product are released to stroke PE, and complain about GI/Empire. You're not really a customer.

You pretty much don't play and own a 20 year old mask predating GI owning the brand. Simmer down.

Nick is just responding humorously to silly posts in the first place.

It's funny that you guys come here to senselessly trash a brand then get offended when someone who works for the brand has a little fun in responding to it.

All good. No harm no foul. I'm never going to come on this forum and attack or try to maliciously talk to someone. I do admit I probably come off as a smart *** at times.

Syx 1.5 update info coming this week

The new Squish is an Encore Bolt in a Luxe lol...

Seriously, they shouldn’t have killed the Vanquish. It might be a great Marker if they lighten it up and integrate the Regulator like they did with the Syx...

As someone with an encore in an ICE. It's still not as smooth as a Squish.

Nick. You know what the world wants. Make the Squish what we all know it could be.

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.
