Team KU – Japan – Grabs 2nd Place at Taiwan 2013 National Paintball Tournament

Monday, March 25th, 2013

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.”

Dye Teams Dominate EPPL Salinas Open – Evolution Wins

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

The first event of the Ecuadorian Professional Paintball League, right on the beach in Salinas City, was dominated by the DYE family of teams.

 

D2

1st Evolution (DYE Team)

2nd Zurikatas (DYE Team)

D3

1st Zurisilver (DYE Team)

2nd Evolution Kids (DYE Team)

 

Here’s a report from the event written by DYE’s own Juan Daniel Nebel Romero:

“Our first two games on Friday were against Evolution Jr who we beat 4-0, then we faced Manta Marines who we managed to beat 4-2. On Saturday we played against Monosalvaje and beated them 4-0 and finally against Kboom from Venezuela and also beat them 4-2.

We made it to Sunday, but we soon discovered that we would be playing against the other DYE Team from Ecuador in the finals, Zurikatas from Quito. After an incredible game, we beated them 4-1 and got the first win of the year.

We would like to thank DYE for the support at the event. The DYE Ecuador booth was amazing and the tech service was on point. Also thanks to DYE for the amazing paint, it was by far the best paint there and between that and the DM13, we were making G’s off the break in high numbers.

See you guys in the next event the Cuenca Open in July!”

Team Dynamix – Champions of SARPL Event #2

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

Team Dynamix from South Africa recently won the SARPL event 2 in Port Elizabeth. Craig Marley gave us a rundown of the event:

“The weekend started with the alarm waking us up at 1am Saturday morning , we loaded up the cars and trailers, the road trip began. Driving a very long 12hrs we arrived in a sunny and very hot Port Elizabeth. We headed straight to the field to walk it. On arriving, the layout was a lot different to what we had trained on at our home field of Blades and Triggers in Joburg, leaving us to make up a lot of new break out plans. The field walk took us well into Saturday night so it was a long day but we felt prepared for our games.

Sunday started early with setting up tents at the field and getting all our Dye gear ready. We were a bit worried about the Dye CG Paint as it had travelled in a trailer for 12 hours in the baking sun, much to our surprise the Dye CG paint shot great throughout the whole tourney giving us no problems at all. We started bashing out games early and with our new game plans we were very strong only dropping 2 points in the pool stages.

Leading into the semi’s, we played a very strong Johannesburg team, Reapers. We took first point the way we had most of the day but they had picked up some flaws in our game plan and used it against us. After a long point they managed to shoot all of us out, taking the second point. We quickly got together and changed our plans and used completely different break outs which we had not tried. We came back using a different game putting us in the finals.

We met a team from Port Elizabeth in the finals. We started off strong but dropped the second point. We got our heads back into the game to fight back as it was a long drive back and no one wanted that drive with a second place finish. After grinding the last point we had shot out their players and hung the flag taking the WIN!

With the second RPL completed we drove 12hrs back to Johannesburg with us arriving home at 5:30am but all of us smiling and as happy. We could not have done it without the help from our sponsors DYE, Blades and Triggers, DYE CG paintballs and the Smuts family. Thanks for all the support.”
