Tactical Event in Australia, Mogadishu Wrap up

Monday, September 19th, 2011

Thanks to everyone who came out today, and made it our biggest Scenario Event so far.
The City of Mogadishu has been under control of the Somalian Freedom Force for two weeks, civilian casualties are high. They have control of 5 mission critical hard drives. Joint coalition forces have assembled 3 Special Forces units. The Australian SASR, US Navy Seal Team Six, and the British Special Boat Service (SBS).

The day started off well, and late as every paintball event does. In total we had 96 players from all over Australia come out for the event, even Domenic Annable from Townsville made it down! The Somalian team consisted of the tournament Team, X-Fighters, Ex Swat Players, and many more, they had around 40 players with one mission, hold off the Attacking forces for 2 games, and protect the 5 Hard Drives. With great leadership from Edda Henry, Souse Khoury, and John Caruana, they managed to do just that.

The SBS team was made up mostly of Fireball Paintball players (the Cult) and Action Paintball Supervisors. The had the hard task of Assaulting the city of Mogadishu from the bottom of the hill. They didn’t fair to well in the first game, but the second they managed to secure hard drives for an extra 30 points.

The SASR team was made up of mostly IYAYOAS members, with members of the Australian Defense Force as well. They had game plans, radios and the most difficult start point. The start point was deep in the bush, far away from the Mogadishu City, so it was very impressive the amount of kills and ground they took.
Here is how the day Panned Out:

UK SBS total Points 255 – 2 Hard Drives Captured, 4 Assassinations, 
Somalia 281 – Over 200 Kills, and multiple Leader Assassinations
Seals 217 -  1 Assassination 
SASR 209 – 2 Hard Drives Captured

The Somalian team ended up on top by simply shooting a lot of people! The defense held strong.
Special thanks to Devon Stutz of Dye Asia for the support of our scenario events! 

Best Dressed – Luke “Edda” Henry – Wins 1 Box of Killer Psycho “Blood” Paintballs
After the day, it looked like everyone had an awesome time, and everyone also looked incredibly tired after combat. Thanks alot to all the staff at Action Paintball for working hard to make it happen, and as well to Sydney SWAT, without you guys it could not have went down.

Stay tuned for info on Operation: Etha Dec 2011

Team Dynamix wins the 4th event of the GPPL in South Africa

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

The 4th event of the South African GPPL series took place at Paintball City in Johannesburg over the weekend. Paintball is registered as an official sport in South Africa and the winning team of the GPPL series will be chosen as the South African national team and have the opportunity to represent their country in international events next year, an honor that every paintball player dreams of. With such a huge prize on the line, the PRO division has been closely fought all year long and this event was no exception! However it would be the Dye sponsored Team Dynamix that would emerge as the winners. Dynamix captain, Craig Marley gave us a run down of the event:

GPPL Event 4 2011 started early on Sunday morning. Losing our first game against our fellow DYE team Reaper, the game was very intense and aggressive. The loss made the team realize we needed to pick up our game. Getting the feel of the field, everything started to fall into place with another exciting game against Awsim beating them 3-2, getting 2 points in 45 seconds with the help of our DYE NT11 markers powered by Rotor and the great support from our supporters.

We met Explicit in the finals, beating them 2-0.
A final result with Team Dynamix winning the Event in style wearing the best gear by DYE ,and giving us the greatest tech support throughout the whole day, leaving us with less stress and more time to focus on our game. Not that we needed the tech support as the NT11′s ran with no problems.

It was great to see DYE taking over the South African Pro Division helping teams and new players promote the sport.
Thanks to Blades & Triggers for great paint and support. Without you, we could have not achieved our 1st place in this event.

Nexus’s Marseille Practice

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

George Bruton recalls Nexus’ trip to Marseille

This was our first training as a team on the Paris field, we flew out to Marseille to train against TonTons. After an early flight out we arrived at the field at about 11am. We started to do some break-out drills, but Neil was kicking off because the paint wasn’t good and he couldn’t shoot anything. The TonTons gave us some better paint and Neil was happy again.

It was a good day training with TonTons, doing break-outs, points going back and forth, and both teams learning more about the field every point.

Every one was sweating buckets by the time we got to 2pm, it was hot out there! The turf at the TonTons field is very hard, I was trying really hard not to get astro burn – that s**t hurts.

After practice on Saturday, we headed over to Tav’s house for a huge BBQ dinner which was great. Since everyone had been up since about 4am we all went to bed early. I didn’t really get that much sleep on Saturday night because Shaun wouldn’t shut up about Creamfields, the music festival he went to last week.

And then because of Shaun we were late to breakfast as well. I did the smart thing and took two croissants for the day because on Saturday I was starving and I think everyone else was as well.

We got picked up and we went to the field at 10am, we played points non-stop all day till 4:00pm with Vision and TonTons. The guys made me some side burns and a goatee with permanent marker. I looked mint! Swear down! It was a good day and we had learnt a lot from Saturday. It was a funny day too, watching Neil get caught in a fishing net, Shaun running like a horse and Jay running like he has a pole up his arse.

After we finished we got a hotel room so we could go back and shower before heading home. I did the smart thing and went last so no one could mess with me. Once we were all washed up, we went to a restaurant in the town centre, the food was mint!

We got to the airport and found out that our flight has been delayed by an hour and a half. Jay and Jason bummed off together to go watch ‘hobo with a shotgun’, while I threw M&Ms at them across the airport. When they finally let us through security, Jay got his bag searched. It turns out he still had his multi-tool in his backpack. So then we walked up to the waiting area where Neil was on the look out for girls. I don’t no why, as no one would look twice at him…init.

We finally got on the plane after a long wait, as soon as I got on there I was a goner. I went to sleep. We made it back to London about 2am.

Thanks to TonTons for a good weekends practice and for being good hosts. Next stop is the CPPS where we need to win and move closer to winning the whole series.
