The Battle of Hastings is a large 2 day scenario rec ball event at Splash Planet in Hastings, New Zealand.

Posted on October 23rd, 2014

Splash Planet is a huge water slide park that closes over the winter season.

 

Thankfully, Ultimate Paintball Events sees this as a golden opportunity to hold an epic paintball battle for players from all over the country!

 

This is a very unique location that so many players, the world over, could only dream of.

 

Assault the Castle, defend the Pirate ship and hold the tree fort were some of the awesome games that we played. The combination of an incredibly unique venue and the buzz of paintballers from all over the country with one common interest really made this the not be missed event of the year!

 

We had close to 150 player’s soldier it out in all kinds of weather, the weather gods weren’t being too helpful but rain or shine, this game was taking place no matter what. In the end there were a few showers but nothing we wouldn’t expect at this time of year. There wasn’t many local players at the event which meant that pretty much everyone had to travel to get there. Big ups to all the players that made that put in the hard yards to make it!

 

Black Sheep Media was amongst the action, getting some amazing photos and footage. Heres a sample of what’s to come. Also stay tuned for video’s from both Tony @ BSM and Dave @ Outpost 43!

 

We were divided into two teams Yellow team comprising of players from the Auckland region and Christchurch crew, and facing the might of the RED team.

 

Both teams had a great mix of players from different styles, mag fed, pump, speedball, bush ball, and Paintball Bows!! It was really great to see all the different setups that people were running and the mixture of different guns that were in action. It’s awesome that people can rock the marker / gear that reflects their interest in the sport but we all come together for one ultimate game.

 

Blair spent most of the event at the Outpost 43 popup store, promoting and selling gear and grub to the players, while Dave was out there rocking his cape and filming the action.

 

We’ve been a part of a few large events now, and it was great to see old and new players from around our country stop in and check out our store! At Outpost 43, we felt that it was a great opportunity to promote our range of gear to people that usually don’t get the chance to visit us in Auckland.

 

Once again Outpost 43 would like to thank Devon and Dye Asia for coming on board with prizes, Riverbank Engineering, Paintball Shop, Horowhenua Paintball Club and Ultimate Paintball Events.

 

No one was really focused on who won the game, and all the prizes were given out as spot prizes which was cool!

 

There were some awesome trophy’s made for outstanding players and like always, its great to be able to give back to the players and seeing people’s faces when they win gear!!!

 

Keep an eye out for more large scale games from Ultimate Paintball Events. We are super excited for Urban Warfare happening February 2015!

 

Cheers again and can’t wait to do it again next year. See you all there!

AISAWAN TEAM at TAIWAN OPEN INTERNATIONAL PAINTBALL

July 12-13, 2014

For the first time, Aisawan team, has joined the Taiwan Open. Of course, this was very exciting and we had a chance to visit DYE ASIA!! This was an exciting and important part of the trip.

During the tournament, we did well and stuck to the strategy we trained for.

In the first round, we passed through as the points leader ahead of every other team in the tournament.

As we approach the second round, only 4 teams were left. We could sense the determination from every team to go through the final round.

They worked really hard and push themselves to the limit, just like us.

Our plan works and we passed through to the final round, working through it carefully and wisely.

Finally… success was in our reach and the price was paid.

We took our 6th Championship of this year!

We would like to thank all of the contributors to this tournament.

They were awesome with their hard work and made one of the greatest tournaments we’ve ever attended. It was a good experience to meet new friends and we enjoyed the opportunity to stay there.

Lastly, thank you DYE.. for the great support all along!

SYDNEY EXPLICIT- Climbing Back To The Top

Posted on June 25th, 2014

In the offseason we took a massive roster hit losing Jake Spencer, John Robba and Nathan ‘Macca’ McDonnell to the newly formed Dye team NVS. Despite losing the players and some preseason turmoil we felt good going into round 1. We picked up Mathieu Gent from France who is taking a year to holiday in Australia, Rainer Jensen back from hiatus after taking 2013 off to focus on his degree. We also picked up for the event Sean Patrick from Melbourne.  The team had little time to gel together at Round 1 and it showed with a disappointing 6th place overall despite showing some good signs.

Going into The Dye Asia Cup: Round 2 of the super 7’s the team felt much more confident and prepared, especially with Devon able to make it out to our lovely shores after missing round 1. Our tournament started off with a close loss to NVS going down 3-2. The rest of Saturdays play saw us with 1 win, 1 controversial draw and another loss to STK.

Sunday started off with our worst showing going down 3-2 to Apparition. With the teams spirits low and needing to play well in the remaining 4 games to have a chance at finals. With our backs to the wall the team went undefeated in the next 4 games.

This put us in the play offs for 3rd place against Sydney Swat. The match was a hard fought slog which began by looking right into the sun. The match went back and forth with neither team leading by more than a point. With the time up and the scored locked at 2 – 2 we were headed into an overtime point. The point was long and came down to a 2 – 1 with our captain Plucka in the top corner. With no paint left he rolled the dice and traded out with the snake player but SWAT won with a player remaining.

All in all we were pretty happy with how we performed but know with some work we can be back on the winner’s podium. We would like to thank Devon and DYE Asia for all the support they give the team!! All of our 2014 Dye gear performed flawlessly all weekend, Action Paintball Games, Killer Paintballs & Paintballshop.com . See you all at Round 3 in August!!!
