Thursday, August 1st, 2013

PAVS Round 4 in Victoria, Australia

August 28th, 2013

by Craig McIver – Team Captain

Dye Sponsored team Hard2Overcome hit the road at 4.30am to head up to Cold Stream just outside of Healesville for round 4 of PAVS. The day started mixed with a strong win followed by disappointing losses. Picking up a couple of more wins heading into the lunch break the team went back to walking the field to look for more options.

First game back seen us take a fast point against Sydney S.W.A.T. followed by another win before dropping another game.  The final 2 games of the day seen a win and loss with the last being at the hands of Sydney S.W.A.T. in a very long game that seen some great gun battles and a lot of paint exchanged.

In the end the team finished with 5 wins and 5 losses, and although it was not a great day for the team we still managed to come away with 3rd.

Team Coach & Vice Captain Mark Renden said we will learn from mistakes that were made and prepare for the final round on 7th September. We once again want to thank our sponsors Dye and Devon Stutz for the great gear that never lets us down, and for producing the most consistent high grade tournament paint on the market “Dye CG paint rocks”.

Catch you all at Round 5, September 7th in Newborough for a huge day of paintball!

Hard2Overcome Wins 3rd Round of PAVS and Makes Local News!

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Hard2Overcome continued their winning run by taking out Round 3 of PAVS on their home field at Adrenalin Paintball Club.

Although rain was forecast for most of the day it stayed away to allow perfect conditions for paintball. The team finished the day with 9 wins and 1 loss which further stretched its lead at the top of the table with just 2 rounds remaining. It was a day full of mixed feelings with team mate Mark Renden standing on the sidelines after having surgery on his ACL two days prior.

Team captain Craig McIver said that from the first game we wanted to perform well and do Mark proud, and during his 12 month recovery he will be coaching the team. Overall the day went well even with team numbers down and we are looking forward to the next round. Thanks once again to Dye and Devon Stutz for the awesome gear. As a bonus we had the local news crew come out and get some footage which has been posted on YouTube!

 

TonTon Win Back-to-Back Millennium Series Events

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

TonTon are back on top.

After a win at the 2013 European Masters Millennium Series event TonTon are currently the #1 ranked professional paintball team in Europe, as well as an elite member of the PSP Champions Division.  With five more PSP/Millennium tournaments left to go in the 2013 season,  how great of a year can the TonTon have?  For this team… the sky is the limit.

Here are some words from Loic Voulot of TonTon after their win at Millennium Series Event #2 – The European Masters in Bitburg, Germany:

“After winning the first Millenium event in Frejus, getting qualified for the Champions Division at PSP Dallas, kept our spot at MAO, we have won again last weekend at the second Millenium event in Germany!

Winning 2 events in a raw is never easy, especially this season. The Millenium Series level has been increased by three US teams, the two Russians teams are strong as usual, and none of the 16 CPL teams are easy to play.

During this german event, as at the first one in France, we had to beat all three of those PSP teams to win the tournament.

The first day of the event was kind of strange for us. Pascal Hausser (our team coach) and Fabrice Colombo (our team captain) were not there.  Their flight was delayed but we managed to play strong paintball against Outrage, then Heat, finishing the day with a 2-0.

Playing sunday is always a good reward, but it can be a disappointed day too if you don’t do the job or play well.

In the quarter finals we played against Infamous. We lost the first nine minute point which had Infamous leading 0-1, but then we scored one point, then an other, and won this game 4-1.

Our semi final game was against Impact, a close game where we managed to keep control on the canadian team to go to the final 4-3.

After three days of the tournament, we played against Heat for the second time.  Heat was leading 4-2 at 1 min 17 before the end of the game, forcing us to score 2 quick points to equalize then a third 17 second point to win this final. We did it, final score 5-4.  To score 3 points in a min to Heat prove that the team is able to play on different rhythms, slow or fast regarding what is needed.

The CG paint, shot by the DM13 was absolutely perfect, brittle and accurate, for sure a BIG part of this win.

What a great 2013 season start for the team! If we want to be considerate as a world class team, we need to confirm those good results in Chicago during the next PSP event. This is why we’ll practice hard for the next four weeks.

Thanks to all the people rooting for us.

Team Dynamix – Champions of SARPL Event #2

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

Team Dynamix from South Africa recently won the SARPL event 2 in Port Elizabeth. Craig Marley gave us a rundown of the event:

“The weekend started with the alarm waking us up at 1am Saturday morning , we loaded up the cars and trailers, the road trip began. Driving a very long 12hrs we arrived in a sunny and very hot Port Elizabeth. We headed straight to the field to walk it. On arriving, the layout was a lot different to what we had trained on at our home field of Blades and Triggers in Joburg, leaving us to make up a lot of new break out plans. The field walk took us well into Saturday night so it was a long day but we felt prepared for our games.

Sunday started early with setting up tents at the field and getting all our Dye gear ready. We were a bit worried about the Dye CG Paint as it had travelled in a trailer for 12 hours in the baking sun, much to our surprise the Dye CG paint shot great throughout the whole tourney giving us no problems at all. We started bashing out games early and with our new game plans we were very strong only dropping 2 points in the pool stages.

Leading into the semi’s, we played a very strong Johannesburg team, Reapers. We took first point the way we had most of the day but they had picked up some flaws in our game plan and used it against us. After a long point they managed to shoot all of us out, taking the second point. We quickly got together and changed our plans and used completely different break outs which we had not tried. We came back using a different game putting us in the finals.

We met a team from Port Elizabeth in the finals. We started off strong but dropped the second point. We got our heads back into the game to fight back as it was a long drive back and no one wanted that drive with a second place finish. After grinding the last point we had shot out their players and hung the flag taking the WIN!

With the second RPL completed we drove 12hrs back to Johannesburg with us arriving home at 5:30am but all of us smiling and as happy. We could not have done it without the help from our sponsors DYE, Blades and Triggers, DYE CG paintballs and the Smuts family. Thanks for all the support.”
