    Most people already said their thoughts, so now it's my turn. Personally, #3 got me laughin' first and I liked it, but #2 really stands out- just about sayin' "ya' betta' get the h*ll out of my way or I'll run ya' over"- like jerome bettis. Personally, i'd throw on "own it, or be owned by it" but that might turn out a little cliche. I really don't feel offended by any of the ads like some of you would be. Oh yeah, make sure you get a pick of it on a different gun, preferably a bushy, 'cause I wanna' know what mine 's going to look like with a warp on it.

    btw, somebody else said that a lot of people don't know what a warp is. Well, at a big game/scenario that I went to there was one guy out of about 350 that had a warp, and my team was like "hey, you see the guy with the warp". Everybody who heard of a warp knew there was one there. Just think of the other people that don't know what one is- their thinkin' "what the heck is that!" Half of the people there had no idea what a warp is.

    Talking #3

    I like the idea of ripping of another bright idea from the dairy farmers! LOL...You should really put GOT GAM-E under the advertisment though...see how many people get it.

    #2 gets my vote, when seen in full blown color it will definitely bring some attention to the sport.
    #3 is tasteless, nothing funny about missing children at all. Shows a lack of respect for a not even remotely funny issue. Rethink that one for the sake of your companies image.

    Evilernie: it was not an idea instituted by dairy farmers it was by a group to help find missing children abducted by an unknown person or persons, that is not funny at all.

    Definetely go with 3 becuase it shows that warp feed is better in a funny way. Also #2 is not that great because it shows the warp feed on an E-mag, making another marker owner feel like it won't be as good on his gun.

    "#3 is tasteless, nothing funny about missing children at all. Shows a lack of respect for a not even remotely funny issue. Rethink that one for the sake of your companies image."

    I am not trying to be tastless - and I am not making fun of missing children at all. I suppose your perspective isnt unique, but its not one that I think most post people will immediately jump to.

    Its taking an everyday object and using it as a reference for an idea. Similar to if I had used a wanted poster or a missing poster. All of these items has been used in countless advertisements through many many years. I am not breaking any new grounds (The Blair Witch Project created a heck of a furvor around thier film at the sundance film festival with thier realistic "missing" poster).

    At anyrate - I just want to make it clear that I am not poking fun at all at missing children - or to honest even mean to involve the issue. I was simply using what has become an everyday item to convey a concept.

    sorry to offend

    I'm voting for #2

    I love #3 also, for all the reasons stated, but I think #2 is great because it's really aggressive.

    The field I play at, hardly anyone uses 'Mags. They're kind of one of those things "seen one, never used one... aren't they beginner guns?" type of attitude.

    It would be nice to see an ad which, in addition the overlay of a specific product push, had an underlying message of "We're AGD... we bring it hard, and competitive."

    Certainly stress that the Warp will go on any gun, but using a nice, large graphic of the E-Mag will get you a 2-fer advertisement, gun & Warp. Twice the bang for your buck.

    Here's another idea, just for kicks:

    Have a row of various guns all with hopper shots splattered on them. Somewhere in there put an E-Mag w/ Warp, totally clean.

    Caption: "Which of these rigs is not like the others?"
    Subcaption: "Today's win is sponsored by the letter 'W', as in 'Warp'"

    Just not number 1. I do not think you're going for the pointy ear crowd. Any and all references to Star Track should be immediately expunged from your advertising.

    Thanks for everyone's input.

    AGD will pick between 2 and 3 and we will get it developed further. Look to see it more towards a finished stage in a few months.

    Thanks again for all the input!

    I think #3 is way too funny, however, I do like the seriousness of #2 and it definitely explains the functionality of the warp and how it is attached to the gun for those who aren't familiar with it.

    If there was a way to incorporate the relationship the warp has when it's on the gun in #3, then I can see that ad to be more effective while maintaining the humor. Right now, I think those who are familiar with the warp already can understand the humor but those who aren't might miss the point.

    #2 also has a good close up picture and I believe if you're trying to sell an add in the magazine, it's important to show what it is.

    Just my opinions...so my vote #2! =)

    #3 is tasteless because missing children are on milk cartons! I find #2 tastless also because the stealth factor of not seeing the warp during gameplay is very simular to the brutal reality of not seeing deadly snipers in war. #1 is tasteless because it promotes the casual use of warp drive which can cause tears in the time-space fabric of our universe (can't remember which Trek episode that one was).
    Also, paintball players carrying markers around that resemble guns is tasteless cause in WWII the nazis used guns. OMG, paintball players are nazis!! You horrible people. Now that I think about it, everything is tasteless, obscene, or dangerous. We should ban/censor everything and confine ourselves to padded white walled rooms. Wait, why white walled rooms? Why not black walled rooms? Am I racist or something?

    BTW, #3 is the best. Short and sweet. It gets the point across best.

    I like number 2 best, but number three is nice too.

    "Take a good look at the Warp Feed before the game, because you won't see it hiding behind the bunker during the game."
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.

    Definitely go with 2...ads are in your face today, and I think that this one will sell. People always ask me how it works...I let them feel it. Then the next comment is weight. I show them how to cradle. Then I play, all they see is a barrell...#2 embodies the whole concept and idea of the warp with that attitude statement.
    X-mag #10. Nuff said.
