Good move on Valkens part. They are getting up there with Empire, Dye, and eclipse. Within the last year-

New Loader
Full line of apparel
Private label marker
Fancy mask line

Pretty cool. I'm glad to see a small company like Valken grow. I've used Valken for a while now and I am pleased with my purchases.

Rumour has it that they're buying Mokal next.

Take with a bag of salt.

You have to love it when a large company that profits off of everything from paint to markers takes over what was once an unbiased paintball publication. Yeah, I'm real sure every "news" story won't be turned into a giant Valken advertisement, and that their competition's ads will be given equal presence.

Smart way for Valken to increase their profit margin, but will the players themselves truly benefit from a news publication that now has a highly-motivated financial agenda?

Exactly what I was thinking.

Same. Even if Valken never touches the content (unlikely) all journalistic credibility is gone.

Paintball and airsoft are like oil and water. Not a good idea to combine them. Its bad enough that they pollute our fields with little plastic bbs when there's no one around.

I'm sure they say the same thing about the sludge we leave on bunkers.

Which would be completely understandable if I was sneaking onto an airsoft field to play pb.
