The Battle of Hastings is a large 2 day scenario rec ball event at Splash Planet in Hastings, New Zealand.

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Splash Planet is a huge water slide park that closes over the winter season.

 

Thankfully, Ultimate Paintball Events sees this as a golden opportunity to hold an epic paintball battle for players from all over the country!

 

This is a very unique location that so many players, the world over, could only dream of.

 

Assault the Castle, defend the Pirate ship and hold the tree fort were some of the awesome games that we played. The combination of an incredibly unique venue and the buzz of paintballers from all over the country with one common interest really made this the not be missed event of the year!

 

We had close to 150 player’s soldier it out in all kinds of weather, the weather gods weren’t being too helpful but rain or shine, this game was taking place no matter what. In the end there were a few showers but nothing we wouldn’t expect at this time of year. There wasn’t many local players at the event which meant that pretty much everyone had to travel to get there. Big ups to all the players that made that put in the hard yards to make it!

 

Black Sheep Media was amongst the action, getting some amazing photos and footage. Heres a sample of what’s to come. Also stay tuned for video’s from both Tony @ BSM and Dave @ Outpost 43!

 

We were divided into two teams Yellow team comprising of players from the Auckland region and Christchurch crew, and facing the might of the RED team.

 

Both teams had a great mix of players from different styles, mag fed, pump, speedball, bush ball, and Paintball Bows!! It was really great to see all the different setups that people were running and the mixture of different guns that were in action. It’s awesome that people can rock the marker / gear that reflects their interest in the sport but we all come together for one ultimate game.

 

Blair spent most of the event at the Outpost 43 popup store, promoting and selling gear and grub to the players, while Dave was out there rocking his cape and filming the action.

 

We’ve been a part of a few large events now, and it was great to see old and new players from around our country stop in and check out our store! At Outpost 43, we felt that it was a great opportunity to promote our range of gear to people that usually don’t get the chance to visit us in Auckland.

 

Once again Outpost 43 would like to thank Devon and Dye Asia for coming on board with prizes, Riverbank Engineering, Paintball Shop, Horowhenua Paintball Club and Ultimate Paintball Events.

 

No one was really focused on who won the game, and all the prizes were given out as spot prizes which was cool!

 

There were some awesome trophy’s made for outstanding players and like always, its great to be able to give back to the players and seeing people’s faces when they win gear!!!

 

Keep an eye out for more large scale games from Ultimate Paintball Events. We are super excited for Urban Warfare happening February 2015!

 

Cheers again and can’t wait to do it again next year. See you all there!

Round 2 of the Australian Super 7s series was held in May at Action Paintball. 10 teams were all vying for the top spot in the Professional Division. We knew that if we didn’t bring our A game we were going to be in for a tough weekend of paintball.

We started on the Friday with a walk of the field. After coming up with a couple of game plans that we were happy with, we called it a day and went back to make sure all our gear was prepped and ready for the weekend.

Saturday morning rolled around and we were the first game of the day. We were up against SYDNEY EXPLICIT. Explicit had brought over Devon Stutz from Dye to play with them. We started off well coming away with a 3-2 win. Our next few games were against NZ Clown Monkeys, Shenanigans and East Side Raw, all of which we also took the win. Our last game of the day was against STK. This was going to be our hardest game of day 1 but also a good test to see if all of our training after the first round had paid off. It was a fast-paced game with both teams taking quick points and throwing everything at each other. At the end of time we came away with the win at 3-2.

On Sunday we had four games to play before finals. We were up against Apparition, Uprising, Relentless and Sydney SWAT. Having taken only wins up to our SWAT game, we knew we would be playing off for 1st or 2nd in the Finals. SWAT had brought over Blake Yarber from San Diego Dynasty, and this game was to be our hardest game for day 2 before Finals. It was also going to decide whom we would play off in the final as STK and SWAT had both suffered losses while we remained undefeated. Given our on-field relationship with SWAT, this was going to be the grudge match of the weekend, especially for SWAT as they tried to keep their finals hopes alive. After some long drawn out points it ended in a 2-all draw. This meant we would be facing STK in the final for 1st or 2nd.

The Final.

What a game this was. The end score absolutely does not reflect how tough the match actually was. Both teams came out swinging from the blocks. We were able to get an early 2 point lead. We swapped ends where STK were able to take the next point – they weren’t going down without a fight. After quickly regrouping we were able to take the next 2 points and come away with the 4-1 win!

In closing, we would like to thank everyone who came down and supported us in the pits or just by cheering for us over the weekend. It really helps us a lot. A big shout out goes to our sponsors Devon Stutz, Dye Precision and Paintball Addiction. Our gear performed flawlessly all weekend and without you guys none of this would be possible.

Round 3 will be held in August and we’re aiming to keep up the good work and bring home another win.

Pro Team DNX wins SARPL Event #2!

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Team DNX had a great showing at Event 2, that was played at Blades & Triggers field in East of Johannesburg.

DNX started the morning in the race to 3 Pro 5man bracket, but were not able to win there 1st match losing 2-3 to Reaper. Then the following games they were able to find their feet and won all prelim games up to the finals.

Finals started late Sunday afternoon. With the South African sun starting to set as winter is making its way into the City of JHB.

DNX played Reaper in the finals and went up 2 points. They then lost a point to Reaper, but with a dirty hang the score sat at 2-0 in DNX’s favor. With 4min on the clock Reaper came back with a win, setting up the last 1.40 min to try to even the score and force over time. The score is 2/1 but DNX came out the gate firing and heated for the WIN smashing up Reaper to seal the WIN 3/1!!!

The team showed great composure and wanted the win. DNX hands down out played all the Pro teams at the event.

SA’s RPL 2013 champions are showing they are in the running to WIN 2014!
