I know I’ve been a ghost over the past few months. MagWars is not dead. Just restructuring. I learned (well I already knew but defied wisdom) that it is better to work within a talented team, than try to carry all the weight your own. I had high hopes and big plans for MagWars when I started it. But the truth is, I bit off more than I could chew. Especially since I’ve been diligently working with other brands to bring some amazing products to market. Over the course of the next twelve months, you will see what I have been working on and it will have been worth the wait.
In the mean time I encourage you to get your magfed news from MagFedPB.com. I’ve been working with this team behind the scenes (so far in a small capacity) to offer any support I can. I will also be writing for them in the near future.
For magfed games and events, I direct you to MagWell. Lee and his team have done an outstanding job spreading the love on the ground and online. If you would like to host a MagWell event in your neck of the woods, let them know and they will do everything they can to get you started. The best part is MagFedPB will cross promote it, along with any magfed game they can get info on.
MagFed is a family. We have to support each other and lift each other up. We also have to hone in on our strengths and trim the fat. That is what I’m doing with MagWars. I’m no good at staying on top of current events (at least on my own). I’m a creative. I like to make things. Fun things. Useful things. So that is all MagWars will do. Promotional items like the magfed signs and targets. Maybe even posters and bumper stickers. If I make a design that you want on a shirt or a patch, well then I’ll kick that over to Deadbox and see if they want to make it. I have no interest in competing with them in that space since they already do a good job.
I tell all my friends and business associates, the “win” for your craft is all about the experience. Provide the best possible experience for your fans and customers. If this is at the core of your efforts, you will not only have great success, but also great loyalty, to and from your followers.
So in this awesome and growing game genre called magfed (that we all love) I encourage you to zero in on what you are good at, and then throw your support behind those with other talents. Together, as a team, as a family, we will blow this thang up!
Spyder to release their mag-fed entry, the “MRX™ Elite” this week!
Another new mag-fed product that has been getting a lot of hype for a while, is Spyder’s MRX. Today on their official blog, Spyder announced the “world release” will be this week at the 2012 Paintball Extravaganza.
It’s definitely a little different than what we’ve had to date in the mag-fed ‘verse. Then again, everything seams to be changing right now. We are just happy to see more mag-fed products getting made. Especially from big paintball dogs like Spyder.
Omar over at Rap4 shows off the highly anticipated D-Mag in action.
This video comes out right on the heals of the new Milsig marker announcements. There is no way to tell if this is coming out as a response to all the attention Milsig has been attracting over the past few days, but it sure is timely.
Until now, no one really knew how Rap4 was going to pull off a “hi-cap FirstStrike” mag. It turns out to be 10+10 double-stack straight-feed mag. So far the early impressions have been a mixed bag. There is already a lot of noise going ‘round about this reveal, both for and against.
Some people sound willing to accept the alternate method while others would prefer to stick with the a traditional U-turn-style mag and don’t like that Rap4 was not more upfront in the beginning about this design, since they have been plugging it for so long. We will continue to watch it unfold and keep you posted.
It looks like we picked a crazy week to get started!
Just as we were kicking the tires on our new site, Nelson Lau (DIRECTOR of Milsig) Dropped some pretty solid bombs on the Facebook Milsig Operators Group.
This is pretty interesting stuff. Especially since we are not used to getting so many updated and new products from Milsig at one time. We are going to dig in and do a full rumor round up for you.
Full details are expected later this week from Paintball Extravaganza International.
