AISAWAN TEAM at TAIWAN OPEN INTERNATIONAL PAINTBALL
July 12-13, 2014
For the first time, Aisawan team, has joined the Taiwan Open. Of course, this was very exciting and we had a chance to visit DYE ASIA!! This was an exciting and important part of the trip.
During the tournament, we did well and stuck to the strategy we trained for.
In the first round, we passed through as the points leader ahead of every other team in the tournament.
As we approach the second round, only 4 teams were left. We could sense the determination from every team to go through the final round.
They worked really hard and push themselves to the limit, just like us.
Our plan works and we passed through to the final round, working through it carefully and wisely.
Finally… success was in our reach and the price was paid.
We took our 6th Championship of this year!
We would like to thank all of the contributors to this tournament.
They were awesome with their hard work and made one of the greatest tournaments we’ve ever attended. It was a good experience to meet new friends and we enjoyed the opportunity to stay there.
Lastly, thank you DYE.. for the great support all along!

In the offseason we took a massive roster hit losing Jake Spencer, John Robba and Nathan ‘Macca’ McDonnell to the newly formed Dye team NVS. Despite losing the players and some preseason turmoil we felt good going into round 1. We picked up Mathieu Gent from France who is taking a year to holiday in Australia, Rainer Jensen back from hiatus after taking 2013 off to focus on his degree. We also picked up for the event Sean Patrick from Melbourne. The team had little time to gel together at Round 1 and it showed with a disappointing 6th place overall despite showing some good signs.
Going into The Dye Asia Cup: Round 2 of the super 7’s the team felt much more confident and prepared, especially with Devon able to make it out to our lovely shores after missing round 1. Our tournament started off with a close loss to NVS going down 3-2. The rest of Saturdays play saw us with 1 win, 1 controversial draw and another loss to STK.
Sunday started off with our worst showing going down 3-2 to Apparition. With the teams spirits low and needing to play well in the remaining 4 games to have a chance at finals. With our backs to the wall the team went undefeated in the next 4 games.
This put us in the play offs for 3rd place against Sydney Swat. The match was a hard fought slog which began by looking right into the sun. The match went back and forth with neither team leading by more than a point. With the time up and the scored locked at 2 – 2 we were headed into an overtime point. The point was long and came down to a 2 – 1 with our captain Plucka in the top corner. With no paint left he rolled the dice and traded out with the snake player but SWAT won with a player remaining.
All in all we were pretty happy with how we performed but know with some work we can be back on the winner’s podium. We would like to thank Devon and DYE Asia for all the support they give the team!! All of our 2014 Dye gear performed flawlessly all weekend, Action Paintball Games, Killer Paintballs & Paintballshop.com . See you all at Round 3 in August!!!

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.
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.
