In paintball? Personally I'd have walked had they asked for anything over three, and even that's pushing it. (Well, it was pushing it ten years ago- nobody really innovates anymore today.)

It kind of feels like we’re missing the point here...
-Oddly enough, I find it harder and harder to get excited about a "hot new marker release" that's just new milling on an old gun. Don't get me wrong, I like "looks" as much as any of us, but I'm a gearhead at heart. I'm after new and interesting tech, not a gold vinyl wrap and fancy rims on a bone-stock 2008 Honda Civic.

Solid analogy. Ha!
I am on the other side, for sure. I want something new and different looking and unfortunately with the size of markers these days, that’s hard to come by🤢

The nerve on this guy, when we know he's just souring the market before he releases his 'Ursa Edition' Autococker body with built in Dew dispenser.

(But seriously Doc, we all need a new Doc milled cocker body).

I second this statement. My Fastback is my all time favorite marker. It needs a buddy

Fortnite? That’s cute, COD had those rarity ratings before fortnite was a “thing”

Ps. Fortnite is garbage.

There was some debate over whether it should be called Pillowfortnight or Cushionfortnight, so everybody just kind of started calling it plain ol' Fortnight.

And, of course, these kids today that don't know how to use punctuation or proper spelling on their phones, just wind up misspelling it as 'fortnite'.

Kinda silly, really, don't know why eveyone's making such a big fuss over it.
