Taiwan hosted the recent 2013 National Paintball Tournament, and Dye’s Team KU from Japan made the podium.
“After one year of not playing an event with the team, it was a great feeling to get back onto the field with everyone. Our first event was in Taitung Taiwan. We were considered to be the favorites to win the tournament along side defending champions Team Storm from Taiwan.
Equipped with dye gear head to toe and shooting the new DM13s and Dye CG Paintballs, we finished the prelims in first place heading to the final round with confidence. Unfortunately we could not take that form into the final rounds and ended up 2nd overall behind Storm who defended their crown. Shortage on players and injury might have been a big factor, but no excuses, Team Storm were the stronger team and deserved to win.
We would like to thank team SplatZ from Malaysia for helping us in the pits and coaching us. Steven and Weili from Dye. All the participating teams for their generosity and sportsmanship, and of course the marshals! And last but not least our sponsors Dye Paintball for the continuous support.”
