Dye DAM Takes Bravo Company to 1st Place!

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

Team Bravo Company from South Africa recently won the second event of the Gauteng Bushball Series using their new DAM markers.

Len Nery from Bravo Company gave us a rundown of the event and filled us in on how the DAM’s performed:

“This was the second leg of the seven man 2013 Bushball Series and the first time the Dye Assault Matrix was used during a competition in this country.

Bravo Company Paintball arrived at the event as hot favourites after winning the previous event that was held at The Bush Paintball Field (http://bushpaintball.co.za/) and we certainly made an impression by arriving for the event with seven Dye Assault Matrix markers to point at opposing teams! Within the team all members began the day with one goal and that was to win the event without losing a single game and that’s exactly what transpired. Not only did Bravo Company convincingly win every game including 4 perfect scores (no loss of players), but at most only lost two players in a single game!

The pin point accuracy delivered by the DAM was a key factor in our success and whilst only ten First Strike rounds were fired by Bravo Company during the tournament it yielded one confirmed kill.

The accuracy when sighting down the rail is mind blowing and a refreshing change to any other marker we’ve used. A few of the Bravo Company members have removed some of the extra rails and reported that the Dye Assault Matrix felt very light and was easy to manoeuvre during game play and we are also very impressed with the ease of removing the bolt.

It is a brilliantly thought out marker that will allow Bravo Company Paintball to be a serious force to be reckoned with during 2013.”

Hard2Overcome become Victorian State Champions! – Australia

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

DYE would like to say CONGRATULATIONS to our Aussie friends Hard2Overcome who recently took 1st and 3rd place at the Victorian Championships Race Event!

From Craig Mclver, Captain Hard2Overcome:

“Saturday 23rd March kicked off the first ever Victorian Championships Race Event held at Adrenalin Paintball Club, in Newborough Australia. The field itself is a soccer ground that the club shares for its tournaments and sets up on the week leading up to the event, and once over dismantles and stores everything away in there club house located at the venue. With rain and large winds in the days leading up to the event it was a relief to have a clear sky with some cloud as the event kicked off. The events games were played as a standard 5 man to 3 point on a Race 2 format.

Local Dye sponsored team Hard2Overcome was hoping that there home ground advantage would help them continue their great start to the year with another win after taking out Round 1 of PAVS. After dropping the first game of the day to their sister team H2O Blue, they adjusted some elements of their game plan and went into the lunch break with 2 wins & 1 loss. As the day progressed a lot of teams were all equal on points and it came down to the last round to decide who would play the finals.

H2O Blue played off for 3rd place in the finals against Tension who had recruited two Sydney Swat players with the end result being Tension wining 3-0 and taking out 3rd place. The final to see who would be the first team to be named Victorian State Champions would see South East Cartel against Dye’s own Hard2Overcome who were separated by 1 body in the lead up to the final.

From the first game Hard2Overcome placed heavy lanes towards the entry of Cartels key bunkers in a bid to stop them attacking from both the snake and Dorito side. The first point would go to Hard2Overcome after just 60 seconds of aggressive play without dropping a body. The second point seen Cartel bunker in hard at their initial positions and Hard2Overcome were forced to roll their guns in a bid to prevent them advancing, this made for a longer drawn out point which Hard2Overcome would drop only 1 body and go 2-0 with only 1 win away from the title. Off the break Hard2Overcome were more aggressive in their attack which seen them drop a couple of players and by the time they hung the flag for the third and final time they had 1 player left which was enough to win the final 3-0.

Hard2Overcomes captain Craig McIver said that the event was fantastic and had a great vibe in the pits. Every team played well on the day and created a challenge for us. We knew that come the finals we would be up against a tough opponent and Cartel always give us a great match. I am so proud of everyone on the team, the guys played outstanding today and we are now looking forward to the next round of PAVS. We would just like to thank Dye Asia and Devon Stutz for all the support they give us, and for letting us take the field with our DM13′s which once again were absolutely flawless and one of the reason we now have this title.”

 

 

HULK – 4th Place at Moscow IceBall Series

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

We’ve got an update from our Ukrainian team HULK who recently competed at the 2013 IceBall Series in Moscow -

“Past weekend Hulk team visited last leg of IceBall Series in Moscow. Team target was to check the strength of the team before season and to make a kind of test for the players who have three months of serious training. It was also necessary to test the new guns Dye DM13 – and they did not disappoint! Players reviews is only best, it is really a high-level marker – trouble free, accurate and convenient.

The team played two by to squads, each with 5 people, without substitutions; two players cannot come due to medical reasons. Both squads are out of the groups, unfortunately, only one team won a quarterfinal, which at the end took the 4th place in the tournament.

Given the fact that the tournament was seen as training, we do not see any failure in these results, as the basis of analysis of video footage can be concluded regarding the composition of the team for the upcoming season.

One conclusion can be sure – this season the team provided by the best paintball equipment in the world; thanks to Dye!”

mepaintball.com 3-Man Event in Sharjah a Major Success!

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

by Jeremy Klynsmith

“This past weekend saw the 1st event of the mepaintball.com 3 Man series sponsored by Dye and hosted by Sharjah Paintball Park.

Paintball in the UAE has struggled in recent years, largely due to a lack of support from the local fields to organize events. The guys

at mepaintball.com decided to take matters into their own hands and organize a 3 man series this year that is for the players and run

by the players. The idea is to run simple and well organized events to give the UAE teams something to play for, Dye decided to get

behind this great initiative and have helped sponsor the series.

There was a real buzz around the field, all the players were pumped for the event and games started to run smoothly and on time,

Ali Omran from mepaintball.com did an awesome job of organizing everything and keeping the games rolling. We saw some really good

games throughout the day, the Dye CG paint shot perfectly and it seemed like everyone had a great day of paintball.

Well done to Ali and his crew for running a great event, I know that all of the UAE players appreciated it and are looking forward to the next one.

1st Place: Closure

2nd Place: Expats

3rd Place: Cold Paint

Team Duckside Grabs 2nd Place at PALS Thailand – Bangkok

PALS Thailand 2013… by Daniel Thong

“Our first PALS Thailand 2013, was an amazing experience, remembered it as fun, nerve-racking and an adrenaline pumping voyage. We appreciated each other’s efforts for making the trip a successful one.

Bangkok on the first day was like a bunch of walking zombies taking the earliest Air Asia flight out and it was our excitement that overrides our heavy-eyes and this magnified in greater altitude when the plane touched the soil of Thailand. We quickly hopped on a taxi and head on the Palazzo Hotel.

The next morning, all paint ballers were arranged with busses to the PALS battle ground and the journey was only 8 to 10mins, depending on the traffic. We were quite impressed with the fields set up as they were huge, spacious and well organized.

The pre-lims were a marathon race for us. We were all exhausted under the scorching sun but managed to ranked 7th place, pushing our way into the Top 12.

Moving from Top 12 securing 2 winnings and lost 1 during round robin enabled us to Top 8 battling against team Japan (Nippon United) winning score of 2-0 stepping nearer to our goal. In the semi-finals, we played against team Australia (Rogue Assassins) and it was a close fight with the last man standing, winning critical points of 1-0 entering the final.

The final was scheduled pretty much later on the same day and the weather was unpredictable. It was sunny and hot in the morning then cloudy in the afternoon and much later, pouring rain. Still, the game moved on and we had Team Iran (Griffin) battling for the champion. There’s only one word to describe the final, “WOW!”

The moment we had been waiting for finally came through. We took a deep breath counting the last 10 seconds with our eyes fixed on our next intended position; our fingers on the trigger, ready to shoot; our tired legs gripped firmly on ground, ready to pound and run; our body, soul and mind were fixated all at once in this few minutes against Team Iran. Suddenly, marshals’ shouted game on and there we were, shooting our opponents with all our might.

Unfortunately, favor for the champion was not on our side but to Team Iran instead. In the end we were the 1st runner up. Despite the lost for the champion title, we had a good quality game and gained priceless experience. We felt great that we had gone this far in this first PALS and felt joy knowing that we had great supporters who helped us through the finals.

The day ended with heavy rain in the arena as if the sky knew we needed a bath desperately. Last bus arrived just in time to fetch us back to the hotel as we had another event to attend that evening – The player’s night…..

Yup, celebration was on, at the SLIM in RCA, one of the best chill’ax places in Bangkok. It could not be more appropriate to celebrate PALS in SLIM, together with players all over the globe. We had fun enjoying ourselves with the live band and the F&B there.

Time was clicking away nearly entering Monday and we had MC on stage preparing for the price giving. Claps and cheers lasted almost 30mins for winning teams to the podium and we heard Team Duckside being called next… we sincerely thank to DYE Paintball for their high quality equipments, 89 Arena paintball and KCHL Paintball.

So for PALS Thailand 2013 the final result as such:

1st- Griffin (Iran)
2nd- Duckside (Malaysia)
3rd- Rogue Assasins (Australia)
4th- Blueblood (Thailand)”
