    Official: AO Army Mag-Pie Team Thread!

    Hello one and, most importantly, HELLO ALL!

    This is the official team thread for the AO Army. What is the AO Army? WE ARE THE AO ARMY! You reading this, the player next to you in game laying down ropes of paint or that one well placed shot and even the player on the receiving end of your shot, taking one in the mask.

    The AO Army is everywhere. We take the insults of the players who think that if your paintball gun wasn't built in the last year you're behind the curve. We take the ignorance of players who don't even know what we're shooting and strive to educate them. We recruit players to our cause by spreading the word that 20 year old tech can still hold its own in speedball, can hold its own down in the dirt deep in the woods and can STILL hold back a 800 player strong charge in one of the largest scenario games hosted every year at CPX sports!

    We are a team, we are a single player, and we are even laying down paint towards one another. The AO Army is everywhere!

    How do you get a membership in to this awesome phenomenon?

    -Be a member of AO and support your team
    -Shoot an Automag under ANY of its incarnations, EVEN the FN303.. hell, someone join who is still shooting a panther, we'll let you in! (we'll even let in that blasphemous person who put a 6 pack on his Phantom)

    You don't need to ask to join, we don't even have a membership list. You'll have to go out and actually talk to people, tell them you're a part of the AO Army and start building your own units.

    We build off of Tom's creed:

    Quote Originally Posted by AGD View Post
    The Creed of the Das Untermag Revolution


    We are the few and the underdogs. We do not need notoriety. We seek to gain knowledge and fight against mental repression caused by expensive marketing, hero icons and long held beliefs. We believe that there is a truth and that it should be sought out and embraced.

    We are different because knowledge helps us to understand the line between paintball fantasy and reality where others think no line exists at all. The Revolution holds itself to higher standards. We do not allow our markers to be put down but we do not put down others markers. We seek to learn and to transfer that knowledge to others in a friendly way.

    Our sign, “chuff chuff”, represents a point on the fantasy / reality line. This point moved when the LvL 10 changed the Automag. Long held beliefs have prevented this new truth from breaking into the mainstream. The Untermag Revolution was thus born. The sign is many things: a greeting between Revolution members—as they are among friends and a recognition of brotherhood telling the enlightened that you too seek knowledge above and beyond the mainstream. When directed toward an outsider, it is a signal that they do not wish to learn. We must accept the fact not all will join us.


    Our symbol is the red star enclosed in a black circle. The circle represents unity, its color, black, shows that we are an underground community. The points on the red star represent all of the players that do not understand our creed. The points flow into the stars center showing that all are welcome to work with us in seeking to understand the truth. The red color represents that we are active in our communications with others both inside and outside the Revolution.

    “Live the Creed”
    We have taken what he has said and built on it. Our symbol, based on the creed, the black circle with a red star, is featured on our patches.




    We are still looking for a proper logo for our team mascot being the Magpie. The magpie being a majestic bird that... um... well its called a "MAG" "PIE". The mascot will be featured on our shirts and jerseys.

    I used to get the craziest looks from the "Cool Electro Kids" at the local field in 2003 when I would stick my finger in the breach and bounce the Lvl 10 off of it. Ill always have at least 1 mag, there amazing markers.

    I've used a mag since 95. So far I've never felt like I was out gunned. And I don't expect anything to change that. So as long as I can get rebuild parts. I will continue to shoot my trusty old automagRT. And my wife loves her minimag. So that is one convert.

    Throughout history wars have been fought under banners, flags or symbols that helped represent a feeling of unity, pride and purpose for one's community. AO is a community with members all around the world who are viewed as underdogs on the paintball field because they used a piece of equipment designed 20 years ago. This sense of community with automag users has always meant a lot to me and has helped re-attract me to the sport when I have felt distant or abandoned by it. It encourages me greatly to see a spring of new life developing in this community to join together and unity under the name of "Automag Army."

    Now my challenge is for this creative community to develop a new banner, flag, symbol, or dare I say... Jersey... that we can use with pride. I would like to toss the idea of a "Design Off" out there to help bring out the creativity community members who can develop a simple logo that combines what we love with our great inside joke about Magpies. I for one will be tossing my hat in the ring and willing to get things started. I am in the midst of a move so my computer is still packed, but once I get some time I'm going to photoshop some design ideas up and share them with the community. Maybe a new thread would be better. Regardless I am feeling very patriotic for AO right now and wanted to share.

    I like to think my main marker cancels out the blasphemy.

    Both I guess. Since I assume all of the above has to do with your toys.

    This is how the velcro patch looks on a dye mod top and a backpack.

    I like the back piece. The front looks little off to me.

    Is that Stars and Stripes automag text AGD design or something someone did? Cause to be honest that's little cheesy, at least to me.

    Also the front "patch" seems bit too restless and over complicated.

    Edit. Does it really need the AO army patch on the back? To me it's just too many designs on same surface.

    It is a little busy but I was going for a jersey look with sponsors and such. I don't know who did the patriotic Automag logo. Everything else came from this site and this thread, just trying to include some other ideas. This is definitely nothing official just something I like as another option.

    That's cool. I'd just like the jersey to be the best and most polished design we can come up with. Cause there's definitely enough talent in here to make it awesome. You know, before anyone rushes to order a bunch with unfinished concept.

    Having said that, I realize that in the end it's unlikely to meet everyone's criteria of the "perfect" AO army jersey, and that I might very well be one of them.

    the above shirt cost me over $36.00 because i ordered less than 25 pieces. if you all can every decide on a design you like and get enough orders(its either 20 or 25 pieces) you can get this style of shirt for just over $20.00. the problem is that 1 person has to order them all and pay for them as well and i for one don't have the money to order a couple of dozen shirts and wait for people to decide they want one. i know i posted i didn't want to pay over $25.00 for a shirt but after i got thru playing with it i just had to have it. the letters in the AO Army decal on the back have since been changed to white. i like the red but figured if you all wanted to use the design you would want people to see it from a distance.
