StaarGate 2014 by William “The Prince” Clifford

StaarGate 2014

On the weekend of the 14th and 15th of September I ventured North to Leeds, to play the annual StaarGate big game, held at the Powerplay field. This would be my first year playing Staargate, and having heard such great stories; with over 500 players attending, I just had to play!

Arriving early on the Saturday was great – there was so much to walk around and see; from a bouncy castle to a 20v20 speedball match. Once I’d set my tent up, I headed down to the staging area to gear up and take part in the oldies v young-guns game. We played two rounds of this and us young-guns won confidently each round. It was a great chance to play on a small segment of the field and get a taste for what the big game was going to be like!

The organisers of the UK’s tournament series – the CPPS – were running a Sup’Air mini game to give people the chance to try it out for the first time, so later that afternoon I hopped on there and had a blast – still rocking the DAM, ofcourse! It brought back some great memories from my days as a tournament player, and my equipment preformed just as flawlessly as it does out in the woods!

Sunday began with an explosive start and we quickly managed to push the blues right back into their re-spawn area thanks to some aggressive gameplay. My highlight of the weekend was sneaking through the bushes and winning a 4 on 1 – I mean it when I say this camo works. Take a look at some of the photos! (Credits to BradloPhotography).

Timing the last push perfectly with great effect, we managed to push the blue team out of the key areas thanks to decisive communication from our faction leaders. We dominated gameplay on the Sunday and we ultimately cruised home victorious. It was a great weekend with lots of exciting fire fights on the field, and a great opportunity to catch up with some old friends off the field.

Huge thanks to Shoreline Outdoor Paintball for by far the best scenario game I’ve been to all year and a huge thanks to Dye Paintball UK and Dye Tactical for the outstanding gear.

 

Catch me on Facebook @ WilliamCliffordOfficial and Instagram @wclifford93 for photos and videos from the events I attend.

The final stop on my war tour is a mag fed only event that I’ll be playing in Draklow Tunnels. So look forward to seeing some epic firefights!

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!
