WCPPL Event #1 | Las Vegas, Nevada (March 28th – 30th)
Dye sponsored Team Royalty have been grinding it out every weekend at Santa Clara Paintball. They have had tremendous help with some of the members of the new revamped Ironmen. With the majority of the team heading to Las Vegas on Thursday night, the dreaded car ride had a lot of them anxious for what is to come on Friday morning’s preliminary matches. Friday consisted of 3 matches, with Dave Bains DMG Green team being Royalty’s biggest threat (supposedly). Royalty came out hungry with the first 2 matches consisting of a 4-0 sweep. Against Dave Bains DMG Green team, Royalty came out swinging with 4-1, with the one point being a minor slip up.
Saturday consisted of a major match against Dave Bains second DMG team; the score is neck and neck at 3-3, with roughly 40 seconds on the clock. Royalty shoots 2 snake side players off the break, allowing their snake side player to push fluidly in the 50 snake. With all the attention drawn to Royalty’s snake player, the dorito side aggressively pushed down the field and eliminated the rest in order to clutch the flag hang with only 6 seconds left on the clock. Score was 4-3, Royalty is ecstatic.
Sunday rolls around and the pressure is on. We swept the Bushwhackers 4-1 in the quarterfinals, and LA Wrecking Crew 4-2 in the semifinals. Royalty is heading in the finals against LA Collision. Its neck and neck at 2-2, with LA Collision sending their player to the 50 A, Royalty starts dropping bodies. LA Collision continues to win the match 4-2. Though Royalty is upset, some good can be taken from this loss. Second place is not taken lightly, and we will be sure to come out swinging at the next WCPPL.

My name is Nathan McDonnell. I am 32 years old and live in Brisbane, Australia. I represent DYE PRECISION in two different teams here in good old Aus.
The first team I play for is team nVs. At the end of the 2013 season, Nick Bancroft, Jake Spencer, John Robba, Ben and Karl Simpson and myself decided a change was needed and we formed team nVs. We wanted a team that would not only be competitive but feared on the field. We also wanted to be able to promote the sport off the field.
Our first tournament was at Round 1 of the Australian Super 7s at Action Paintball Games, Sydney. Our very first match together was a little shaky but we came away with the win and then from that point we started to find our groove. We only lost two matches over the weekend, one was to Sydney SWAT and the other to STK – STK of course being another DYE sponsored team. Both these matches were close. After finishing the prelims we were 7-2 which put us into a playoff for 3rd and 4th against East Side Raw from Brisbane. After establishing an early lead we were able to run away with a 4-0 win and take 3rd place. Even though we wanted to win the event, 3rd place to STK and Sydney SWAT (1st and 2nd place respectively) was a good start for us.
During the event we received a lot of positive feedback about our new DM14s and playing gear. I also enjoyed using the new DM14. It felt great and shot flawlessly straight out of the box.
The other team I play for is Hard 2 Overcome. Towards the end of the 2013 season Devon Stutz informed me that they were looking for an extra player for their roster and after introducing me to their captain Craig McIver things started to fall into place. After playing a race event with the guys at the end of last year I was offered a full time spot on their 2014 roster. We competed in Round 1 of the Vic 5s on February 22nd and came away with the win. We will be competing in the Vic Championships on the 22nd and 23rd March. Unfortunately, I will be unable to attend this Round as I have just become a new Dad!
At every event and training session I’ve also been helping new players and other teams tech their DYE equipment. The response I get for helping these other players is quite positive.
This year, at my local field Skirmish Samford, I have been running skills and drills sessions for players of all skill levels. These sessions focus on speed and agility, gun maintenance, general game play and techniques. I have been getting between 15-20 players regularly in attendance. In running these sessions, it gives me satisfaction in knowing that I am helping to groom up players for the continued life of our sport in Australia.
See you at the 50, DYE for Life.

We started getting our new 2014 gear in as soon as possible to adjust rapidly to the change. Less weight, smaller size, improved accuracy and air efficiency on our new DM14′s, allowed us to maximize performance and carry more paint in our vests (as UWL has no limit on the amount of paintballs you can bring into the field). Additionally, the macro line was removed from the new DM design, which meant less tangling up with branches and bushes, just as the DAM, which we were already used to since its release last year.
WAIAKILL – DyeTactical went in the tournament with 3 teams (15 players on each team, 10 on court and 5 replacements).
