Team Duckside dominates World Cup Asia!

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

WCA, 2013. What more can we say about this awesome meet up? A good time was had by all. It is especially important for us to remember this year with a different attitude; it is a triumphant year for team Duckside.

Last year was great but this year, we were absolutely overwhelmed with our success and achievements. We were given 3 top prizes in a row, the Overall Champion 2013, WCA Champion 2013 and the Best Performance Team. Looking back the time when we were amateur in paintball, training and learning from the bigger boys to who we are now. Rome was not build in one day and yes, our commitment and sacrifices paid off eventually.

Three days battle and in the end, we screamed, we cried, and we hugged with joy and gratification after we won our final game against team Virgin from Thailand. There were no amounts of words to describe how happy we were at that moment.  The adrenaline pumping excitement and the cheers from crowds will always be remembered and cherished deep in our hearts.

Our excitement and joy were heightened even more at the prize giving ceremony. Hearing Team Duckside being called to the stage and the crowds cheering and clapping their hands, we walked up the stage with honour and tried every moment not to trip on our steps. Holding on to all prizes we had, we were indeed feeling proud. Teammates took turns snapping photos and posting them on social network. Players greeted congratulations to each other and the feelings were indescribable.

Having said that, there are few individuals we would like to give thanks to. Without their support and guidance, Team Duckside would not be who we are now. 1st Thanks to our Main sponsor 89Arena paintball (the best indoor paintball field in Aisa) and DYE Paintball for their trust and support to us. The C13 series of gear has seriously given us a boost in and out of the field. DM13 has once again maintained accuracy and consistency throughout the tournament and gave us the advantage to dominate most of the games. Thanks KCHL paintball also for believing in us and to all the teams that came and help us, our precious Crews ,Marshalls.

In closing, we give thanks again to all sponsors and the organizer for this fun filling event. Surely WCA 2014 will be another great year for all.

Osvaldo “Papa” Lopes staying busy in the off-season

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

15 miles from Sau Paulo, Brazil, in the town of Peruz. Ops Field, an old cement factory, is a very large field that looks like a scene from World War II. They always hold a variety of exciting games, which is a great way to mix it up in the off-season. One thing that makes the game very interesting….. you can only use your loader of paint. You can’t take any extra paint, so you have to attack, and make as many one-shot-kills as possible. Sometimes the games are 50 vs. 50 so every ball counts! Its a great way to hone your skills, and still have fun in the off-season.
Big thanks to DYE Tactical for all of the gear! See everyone in 2014!

Hard2Overcome Wins the Able Cup Charity Event in Melbourne, Australia.

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

I’m Nathan McDonnell and I play for Sydney Explicit in the Australian Super 7s Series.

Last month I was invited to go to Melbourne and play for Hard2Overcome (another Dye sponsored team) in the Able Cup – a race to four event hosted by the
Adrenalin Paintball Club.  The Able Cup was different from any event I have played in before, as its aim was to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation.  It was very rewarding.

After walking the field Saturday morning and getting our game plan sorted, we were ready to play some paintball.  At the end of Saturday’s games we had played 8 rounds and were sitting in second position.  An okay place to be, but we still had a lot of work to do as there were still 3 rounds to play on Sunday followed by the finals.

Sunday morning saw us face off against the top of the ladder team South East Cartel.  After some back and forth points the game ran out of time and ended in a draw.  We won the next round, but we did lose out on the last round of the day.  At least it was to our sister team H2O Blue.  Despite the loss, it was really good for us as it showed us we had a few flaws in our game plan which we sat down an quickly changed.

At the end of prelims the top four teams were:
South East Cartel
Hard2Overcome
H2O BLUE
HUSTLE

The first final of the afternoon was for 3rd an 4th between H2O Blue and Hustle. It was a close match with both teams swapping the lead, but with time running out it ended in a draw so they were sent into a sudden death 1 on 1.  Both players had the crowd on edge with a few close calls and great moves and in the end H2O Blue came away with the win and 3rd place.

The Final for 1st and 2nd place was between South East Cartel and my team H2O.  I would like to point out that the two times our teams had previously faced off against each other over the weekend, both games ended in a draw.

The game started off strong with the two teams losing players off the break.  We did however get the upper hand and took the 1st point.

The 2nd point started off like the 1st with both teams battling for position and after a few gun battles we came away with a 2-0 lead.

The 3rd point didn’t go the way we wanted with South East Cartel tearing through the field and bringing the game to 2-1.

The next point though, was a real battle.  Both teams dug in and fought for every inch of ground.  After a few key moves we got the kills and came away with the point making it 3-1 to us. This gave us a massive confidence boost going into the next point.

The last point started off with  us shooting 3 of the Cartel guys off the break and then closing it out quickly to come away with a 4-1 WIN.

Needless to say, we were very pleased!

 

We would like to thank the guys from South East Cartel for a tough final.  You guys made us work for every point. We would also like to thank Paintball Addiction for organising and sponsoring the event.  And finally, we would like to thank DYE PRECISION and Devon Stutz for sponsoring our team an giving us an LA Ironmen jersey to raffle off. We ended up raising $1542.10 for the Make a Wish Foundation.

Playing with the H2O guys was great fun and they have an awesome and well bonded team.  I am really looking forward to the 2014 season as I have been asked to join the H2O roster and have accepted.  With H2O I will be playing the PAVS and Race events in Melbourne (but this doesn’t mean I’ve left behind the Sydney events – I will continue with those also).

 

Thanks again to Dye Precision for all the support over the years and future.

 

Shoot, Kill, Win
