On the weekend of the 31st August/ 1st September, I swapped my usual commute on the London Underground (the Tube) and made my way out of town to Romford, Essex to play the Mayhem Big Game – The Pacific 3. Having played the Mayhem Big Games for over 5 years in a row, I knew it was going to be a good weekend!
The Mayhem Big Game is awesome, since it offers something for everyone from: sneaky woods ball action in the lower wood, to the sup air and western field at the top, or even if you want to just check out all the cool vehicles they have all over the site, from tanks to helicopters, to the fighter jet in the staging area!
Its great to see a game that’s grown so much over just a few years, with a lot of the major retailers in the UK attending too. DYE was offering people the opportunity to test drive the DAM in a real scenario, and see how it really holds its own. With all the available DAMs in use the whole weekend, it was clear that a lot of people seemed to be really enjoying themselves testing the marker. The feedback was great – everyone was so impressed by the DAMs versatility, accuracy and complete performance.
On the Saturday, it was great to catch up with lots of familiar faces and take the opportunity to walk around the site. In the afternoon the mini scenario game took place called the Band of Brothers, and there was plenty of sneaky action taking place in the thick woodland. I managed to hold a really strong position against a few pushes from the Japanese thanks to the Dye Cam that I was wearing head to toe.
On the Sunday, we started in the lower woodland and successfully completed almost all of our objectives in the morning. However in the afternoon, despite pushing the opposition right back into one corner of the whole site, we were unable to raise the flag come the end of the game and our win in the morning session wasn’t enough to see us through as the overall winners.
Win or lose its irrelevant, the weather was amazing and everyone left with a smile on their face. Thanks to Mayhem Paintball for another fantastic weekend, for those of you that weren’t there – I’d highly recommend it for next year when it will be held on the 30th and 31st of August in 2014. Thanks to Dye Paintball for the fantastic gear. It performed flawlessly all weekend, catch me on the following social networks and stay tuned for footage from the weekend with my DAM;
Next stop on my ‘Ready for War Tour’ will be StaarGate in just 10 days time.
Be part of the adventure!
