Hard2Overcome – PAVS Series 2013 Champions!

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

7th September 2013 – The 5th and final round of the Paintball Association of Victoria’s (PAVS) tournament paintball series was held at Adrenalin Paintball Club. Dye sponsored team Hard2Overcome went into the final round looking to continue their winning run by taking out the last round of PAVS on their home field.

A mild overcast day was on the cards with the chance of afternoon showers and for once the forecast was spot on. From the first game the team found themselves under aggressive attack from teams looking to stop their winning run, but by the time the break for lunch came the team had 5 straight wins. The afternoon was mixed with wins and then some games being dropped when the rain eventually came later in the day.

But in the end it was enough and Hard2Overcome narrowly came away with another 1st place with 7 wins & 3 losses. The result that day had topped off a great season said team captain Craig McIver, as we had 3 new players come onto the team at the start of the year and we really gelled fast. They are great guys and we all get along, and I feel even though we are still getting use to each other’s unique playing styles we are really enjoying our paintball as a team. As a bonus the second H2O team H2O Blue came second in Division 2 which gave them enough points to take the series win in their Division.

Now with the PAVS Division 1 Championship to their name Hard2Overcome will turn its sights to the Able Cup 5 Man Race Event in October. We need to once again give a huge shout out to Dye paintball and Devon Stutz for all of our awesome gear that never lets us down on the field.

Wrecking Crew Grabs 3rd Place at Perth Paintball League – Round 4

New DYE Team Makes the Podium at Perth Paintball Round 4

Wrecking Crew is a recent addition to DYE’s sponsored teams. We’re based at WASP Paintball in Perth, Western Australia.

A few weeks ago we played the 4th round of the Perth Paintball League. 2013 has been a strong year for us so far. We’ve been building on our cohesiveness as a team with our main attackers putting in work and our role players staying solid, allowing us to consistently place in the top 4 in the “Pro” division at these events.

A highlight game for us was close one against STK in which we prevailed. We lost our snake player on the break, but were able to fight back 4 bodies onto 5 to come away with the win.

The PPL is a round-robbin event with no finals. It relies a lot on just staying focused, playing it safe and minimizing mistakes. As the end of the tournament approached, Menace, STK and us were all tied, having lost 2 games each. All we had to do was win our final game of the day and the scoring system would grant us a hard-earned second place.

Our final game was against WASP, a group of experienced players, but they don’t practice a lot so you don’t know what you’re going to get when you play them. It was a long and close game almost going to time, but unfortunately they were able to pick us off and beat us, leaving Wrecking Crew with 3rd place.
We’ve like to thank DYE Paintball for our gear which was flawless at the event, and our home field WASP Paintball for their support.

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!

My-NPL 2013 – 3rd Leg

photos by: KINGANGIMAGES

What can we say other than it was an awesome weekend! We are so overjoyed, we did our job well securing Gold in this 3rd leg of MY-NPL 2013. With this win we are ranked 1st at the Overall title in MY-NPL 2013. Champion for the second time is something that we can never do without the support and help from side line assisting us as crew. We hold extreme gratitude to all of them.

We fought hard indeed and around of applause to all opponents for the great games played as it were truly a good fight.

Once again, we humbly dedicate this win to all that has been standing behind us and supporting us, especially 89 Arena and DYE PAINTBALL. Without your support, we wouldn’t have been able to get this far. We, Team DuckSide, stay humble as we can and hope we have not offended anyone in our game. Even if we do, please forgive us as we do not have any ill intention as we may be under pressure and over focus to achieve a win. In the game, we may be opponent, but out of the field, any paintballers are buddies with the same passion and yes, we surely do like the Dye CG paint :)

Until then… keep paintballing and play safe, barrel socks on for now … cheers !! ~ Team Duckside

Team DRX Gets 2nd at MY-NPL Event #3

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Team DRX came in 2nd last weekend in the 3rd event of 2013 MY-NPL. Dropping only 2 points in the preliminary, the team emerged on top of the table to take on Team Rockstar in the semi-final.

Surviving an early scare with 2 points down in a race to 4 format, Team DRX hung on with everything they have to come out winning the game with a 3-2 scoreline. Onward to the finals….

As expected, Team DRX face off against Team Recda Waxers in a much anticipated final game of Division 1…In the end, as the dust settles, we lost to a better organised team but that’s all part and parcel of the game we love.

A big thank you to Dye and our sponsors to make this win possible and we look forward to the finale in Malacca (Oct 19-20)!

-Team DRX
