Hard2Overcome become Victorian State Champions! – Australia

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

DYE would like to say CONGRATULATIONS to our Aussie friends Hard2Overcome who recently took 1st and 3rd place at the Victorian Championships Race Event!

From Craig Mclver, Captain Hard2Overcome:

“Saturday 23rd March kicked off the first ever Victorian Championships Race Event held at Adrenalin Paintball Club, in Newborough Australia. The field itself is a soccer ground that the club shares for its tournaments and sets up on the week leading up to the event, and once over dismantles and stores everything away in there club house located at the venue. With rain and large winds in the days leading up to the event it was a relief to have a clear sky with some cloud as the event kicked off. The events games were played as a standard 5 man to 3 point on a Race 2 format.

Local Dye sponsored team Hard2Overcome was hoping that there home ground advantage would help them continue their great start to the year with another win after taking out Round 1 of PAVS. After dropping the first game of the day to their sister team H2O Blue, they adjusted some elements of their game plan and went into the lunch break with 2 wins & 1 loss. As the day progressed a lot of teams were all equal on points and it came down to the last round to decide who would play the finals.

H2O Blue played off for 3rd place in the finals against Tension who had recruited two Sydney Swat players with the end result being Tension wining 3-0 and taking out 3rd place. The final to see who would be the first team to be named Victorian State Champions would see South East Cartel against Dye’s own Hard2Overcome who were separated by 1 body in the lead up to the final.

From the first game Hard2Overcome placed heavy lanes towards the entry of Cartels key bunkers in a bid to stop them attacking from both the snake and Dorito side. The first point would go to Hard2Overcome after just 60 seconds of aggressive play without dropping a body. The second point seen Cartel bunker in hard at their initial positions and Hard2Overcome were forced to roll their guns in a bid to prevent them advancing, this made for a longer drawn out point which Hard2Overcome would drop only 1 body and go 2-0 with only 1 win away from the title. Off the break Hard2Overcome were more aggressive in their attack which seen them drop a couple of players and by the time they hung the flag for the third and final time they had 1 player left which was enough to win the final 3-0.

Hard2Overcomes captain Craig McIver said that the event was fantastic and had a great vibe in the pits. Every team played well on the day and created a challenge for us. We knew that come the finals we would be up against a tough opponent and Cartel always give us a great match. I am so proud of everyone on the team, the guys played outstanding today and we are now looking forward to the next round of PAVS. We would just like to thank Dye Asia and Devon Stutz for all the support they give us, and for letting us take the field with our DM13′s which once again were absolutely flawless and one of the reason we now have this title.”

 

 

Hard2Overcome (H2O) Wins PAVS Series Event #1

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

24th February – Saw Round 1 of the Paintball Association Of Victoria’s (PAVS) tournament paintball series kick off at Snipers Den Moorabbin on a very hot and humid day with temperatures reaching 36c / 97f

This State wide two division event was sporting a shiny new Dye PSP bunker set supplied by Paintball Addiction, the local Dye agent and major sponsor of the event.

The start of the new season of PAVS also saw Dye Paintball sponsoring the local team Hard2Overcome (H2O) in Division 1, who took to the field dressed head to toe in Dye’s 2013 playing including DM13’s and shooting Dye’s CG Paintballs.

The day didn’t start well for Hard2Overcome when they dropped their first game, but the team decided to stick with the game plan and if needed tweak it slightly as the day went on. By the time the lunch break came they were sitting on 4 wins 1 loss and were looking forward to resuming after the break.

Teams from both divisions were playing extremely fast paintball in ridiculous heat and Refs Inc were doing an outstanding job making sure the games ran smoothly while being fed large amounts of water to combat the heat of the day.

The afternoon session had Hard2Overcome pick up where they left off with solid wins which continued into the final round and as it would happen, the final game of the day. The team full of confidence went up against local team Havoc who are known for long hard gun battles, in the end Hard2Overcome got on top and came away with another win.

The win capped off a great event for the team and saw them take 1st Place with 9 Wins 1 Loss ahead of the nearest team on 6 Wins.

Captain of Hard2Overcome Craig McIver said he was “proud of his team, which has seen three new players come onboard and the team at the end of the day was really gelling together. Our DM’s were shooting so smooth all day and the Dye CG paintballs were hitting their targets with pin point accuracy and is the best paint we have ever used. We need to thank Dye Asia and Devon Stutz for showing faith in us and supporting the team, and we are excited to be taking the field every round this year using Dye.”
