What do you think is coming for 2004? It is an even year, so the soakers should be remade, like they were in previous years.

This is what I think

2 CPS - One like the 1200/1000, and one in between the 4100 and the 2500
The same EES XPBackfire-esque they have now
New Max-Ds, pretty much the same
Maybe new Monsters, if not, then the same ones

I've been busy, too. 98 remakes sound good. I would buy 2 of everyone, one to use normal and one to mod.

I've checked my mail, and I've got articles from 3 people today. I'm going to talk to Freakymist the day after tommorow about who should be Admin. I personally like all the people who sent articles. Maybe something could be worked out so that all work for the site.

I say that's a good idea for everyone to be able to work on the site, but only good and active members. Maybe you could make a new administration level for the forums (like a worker or something)

EDIT- Doomsoaker, did you get my articles?

Yes I did. I sent a reply this morning.

Lets stay on topic. I shouldn't have said anything Off-Topic, so it's my fault. :nugget:

I agree that they should have 1998 remakes. I swear, if Hasbro releases another line of those EES XPBackfire-esque guns, I will rip my hair out!1 :mad2: The stupid EES's are hogging all the display case spots where goodweapons should be!

EES is an insult to Super Soakers. How is it "enhanced" by being "electronic"?
What I would like is something better than the 98s. Like the make them the 04s or something and fix all of the problems with them.

Problems needing fixing:
CPS 1000 - Mine doesn't have any really problems, but once while I was pumping I pulled the pump straight out of the shaft. :Hey, that's funny.:
CPS 1500 - People say that these have a lot of problems.
CPS 2500 - Give it a bigger PC.
CPS 3000 - Fix leaks.

That would be the best CPS line ever made. But were not going to get it. I hope Hasbro is reading these type of topics, maybe they'll get smart and do what people want.

Hopefully we'll get a Backpack Monster...The Monster Omega. The end-all-be-all of mass produced soakers and the penultimate mobile water weapon.

Barring that, I hope we see something equally interesting, like a backpack Max-D. The Max-D 10k. With four pressure chambers. And a 6x nozzle.

I think the CPS line will be reinvigorated by the release of several medium sized guns. Think something between the 1200 and the 1700 for the smallest one and something between the 2500 and the 2700 for the largest. Hopefully they'll follow the strong points of the 2700 (big resevoir, good nozzle selection) and combine that with the rugged construction of the 2100.

Since 1995 Im waiting for an Air soaker with 5-10 pressure chambers. A monster with 4 nozzles would be nice to. But it's more likely, that they will bring small to medium CPS soakers, build after the CPS 2100/1000 and CPS 1500. Perhaps a weaker version of the CPS 2500. Or perhaps they make a Monster L. If Hasbro will be really cheap with quality and imagination next year, they will bring 3 new EES Soakers and 2 new MAX-Ds and Splashfires. Since it is said, that every 2 years good soaker series come out, it could go either way.

If Hasbro makes a backpack Monster that has a good amount of power, that would be OK. That seems more realistic than relreleasing the 98s.

sorry guys, but hasbro employees aren't allowed to use input from this type of site, becuase we have mods. but seriously, I want another CPS 2000! it would be awesome!

//EDIT\\
come to think of it, '96 remakes would be cool too, they had some pretty good XXP's come out that year.

You can pretty much ignore the times on that, I rarely ever have Xfire on when I play. I should, though.

Well, you could do what a certain popular site does......as so not to reveal it to them (Hasbro), I won't say it's name, but they have Mods and stuff right under your nose....................................

hyper_9 is going to tell us exactly what site he is talking about or a mod will edit his post again :D - scratch that! I just figured it out!
