PALS never fails to put on a spectacular final event, with one of the classiest venues and extreme PR initiatives in paintball, the 2012 World Cup Asia on the island of Langkawi, Malaysia was a major success to say the least.
Dye is proud to announce that two of our flagship Asian teams, Team Infernal of Thailand and Team STK of Australia, met in the finals in Division 1 and brought both the gold and silver medals home to their trophy cases. Both teams rolled through the prelims and kept their momentum going up until their epic finals match, which ended 4-2 in Infernal’s favor.
Infernal and STK not only competed at WCA, but also had the privilege of competing for the Inter Continental Cup, a division of it’s own that featured some of the most legendary teams in paintball like TonTon and Dynasty. Despite the intense competition, Infernal finished strong with a fourth place finish, adding yet another accomplishment to their long list of success in the world of competitive paintball. Congrats guys!
Infernal: WCA Champions Division 1, 1st overall in the PALS Series, and third runner up at the Inter Continental Cup
STK: WCA 2nd Place Division 1, 2nd overall in the PALS Series

For the last 7 years, Team Poison Ivy has been gracing the paintball community with an attractive (and deadly) female roster, ready and willing to compete against any opponents that get put in front of them. In 2012, Poison Ivy has made a few key pick ups that are going to help them compete against the worlds best at the 2012 World Cup Asia, including Karoline Seheim, Linda Graue, and their newest roster addition/coach Christopher Rønneberg from Drammen Solid.
“It is fun to see that in the last few years, the amount of females playing paintball is growing rapidly” mentions team co-founder Linn Andersen. ”We attended WCA in 2011 and are excited to be back to the beautiful island of Langkawi and to experience what the organizers say will be even better then the last year. We didn’t think it would be possible to top last year’s event, but we’re sure that if anybody can do it, it’s the WCA organizers.”
What makes these girls different? They know how to win. ”We play smart, have very technically good players on the team, and have a good team spirit. All that and more are going to help us go all the way to the top during WCA.”
The 2012 Poison Ivy Roster:
Benedicte Rønneberg (Captain)
Freddie Brockdorff and Cecilia Rickardsson, our friends from FLCharms.
And last, but not least: our coach, and co-player this time, Christopher Rønneberg from Drammen Solid

Ask any competitive paintball team what they want at the end of a season and their answer will always be this: “A Series Championship”.
by: The Grammaton Clerics
“Great news for the Clerics as this year we got the title handed to us on a silver platter… just by registering! For some odd reason, our closest competitor Team Votolocos did not register for the event, which made us the champs. Of course that’s good, but being Grammaton Clerics, we did feel a wee bit dissappointed. We want the title, but we also like the challenge that normally comes with it.
As consolation for being guaranteed a series championship, we played even harder to get the gold at that event, which was held again at Xtion Paintball Park in Bukit Jalil.
After a difficult semi-finals match, we had made it to the finals and had a chance to take home not one, but two 1st place honors at this series finale. The finals were long points. Both teams played cautiously and maintained their lanes well. We shot them off the break on a few occasions, but the mid-game-lockdown they deployed proved frustrating for our forwards. Our back line had to place accurate shots to tuck in their forwards while our snake and dorito inched to get the angles they need. We got the kills and led 2 – 1 with a bit more than a minute left of regulation time.
We were exhausted so we made one final push. As the seconds passed we were getting careless moving up and crossing shots. Lost Boys tried to push snake side and reach the 50s, but our backs held their lanes and crossed it up to put their pace to a stop. As our friends and crew counted down the seconds, Lost Boys could not break our defense and at the horn the game was over. We got the championship trophy and also the gold medal to match.
It has been a long and hard season. We came in to the division as rookies and trained very hard every weekend to improve every aspect of our game. There were no shortcuts or discounts for our success and without the help of family, friends and sponsors we would not have made it this far, this quick. Coming to the end of the third year as a team we thank everyone who parted advice, words of wisdom and contributed directly or indirectly to the team. Our success is as much as yours as it is ours, and we really appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts.
What’s next? There is WCA and that D2 PALS title we have been had our eyes on. For now… we will see you in Langkawi World Cup Asia! Stop by and say hello. We won’t bite… promise.”
