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!

Hulk Recaps World Cup 2013

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

In the United States, World Cup comes to an end. World Cup is held annually in October outside of Orlando, Florida. Cup hosted more than four hundred of best teams from all 50 states and 35 countries. Thereby setting an absolute record for the competition which has been running for more than 10 years.

In addition to good weather and excellent organization of the event, we were also pleased to see:

1) Organizers went back to the standards of the field size of the 2010 season, which corresponds to the current European standards.

2) Revival of the 10man format, one of the oldest in the world of paintball formats.

Among the huge number of participants were two Ukrainian teams, Hulk Kiev and Freestyle Kiev. Hulk played in two formats. As usual in Race to 5, and new to the team, but not to the world of paintball format, 10 – Man.

The format of 10 man is distinguished by several features. First, there are no restrictions on the level – the player of any class from novice to Pro can be passed to rookie tournament. The field is much bigger than 5man. Most importantly, coaching is completely forbidden. All this makes the game much “slower”, but each player takes an independent decision and the teams with the problems in communication stand no chance of winning.

Team Hulk was able to adapt quickly enough to the game in this format and was able to win all six qualifying games, receiving the highest rate in the tournament – 96.5! For comparison, the next highest-ranking team scored only 82.16. After overcoming another preliminary round of the competition, which has become more difficult to win (Hulk is only one point ahead of his nearest rival, the U.S. team «PPS SFO») Hulk fell in the final group , consisting of four teams .

Pleased to note that in the final group, was one more representative of the post-Soviet space, the command Desperados from Russia. The remaining two teams “Tour deForce” and “Annihilators” represented the United States. In 10man players competed from such famous teams as Russian Legion, Ironman, CEP and others.

All participants in the final four were worthy of each other! Only the “Annihilators” with the help of a number of pro players could win all the matches. The other teams won and lost with varying degrees of success, very densely settled down in the final standings. Only a point separated second and third place! Fortunately, it was Hulk that took second place in the World Cup 2013! Desperados taking fourth.

Four sets of medals in the four years of participation in the World Cup. The first medal for Ukraine in the format of ” tens”. These are great achievements with which the team returned home from Orlando!

We would like to express our deep gratitude to the sponsors of the team; information – Autoradio and to DYE for the awesome equipment!

Also many thanks to the permanent leader and team captain, Iaroslav. Coach Alexander, and the permanent leader and inspirer of the pit team, Oksana. Thanks for all their hard work, as well as to all those who supported our team throughout the season!
