WAIAKILL Enters the UWL with DAM’s & DM14′s

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

For the first time, WAIAKILL – DyeTactical, entered into a UWL tournament  in Ecuador. It was an awesome experience and will fully recommend it to any team.

Although it was an introductory version, most of the UWL rules were applied. There were a couple rules that were totally different to what we are used to in other woodsball/tactical tournaments like TacTen. No ramping and 10 bps were probably the ones that shook us most. First-strike rounds weren’t allowed as well.

The tournament was played at ‘Cerro del Muerto’ (translated Hill of the Dead) in Playas, Ecuador which is a desert environment. There was a lot of sand, dry bushes and a dry river that crossed the field and served as trenches. Our DyeCam gear was perfect for this location as we blended with the enviroment.

We started our first match against Team Dragones. We grabbed 2 out of 4 flags within the first three minutes. A couple minutes later we conquered the third flag, giving us a bit more confidence. At the last re-entering in the 14th minute we went all in and conquered the 4th flag at the other teams starting point. This gave us all the points available.

Our next game was played against Iguana Clan, which had a similar result to the first game. Then we had to face Rojo Tactical Team with was a little bit tougher but still won it.

Our Dye Dam’s, Dm13′s and Reflex’s performed flawlessly in this tough terrain. One of our teammates had the honor of playing with his DM14 which recently arrived with our Dye Dealer Luis Neira from World Cup a couole days before.

The final game we had to face Team Dragones which in the global scoring came up in 2nd place advanced to finals. WAIAKILL ended up first with a big difference in points from the second place, but the final match resets the points to zero.

The final game was a tough one, but the points won by our scout when he grabbed the first flag and never losing the second flag gave us the victory.  We used Dye CG paint which gave us an advantage over other teams.

UWL format is very interesting and fun and we recommend it for any woodsball/tactical player that enjoys  mission oriented tournaments.

Keep on balling!!

Badass Blog from the MagFed Uprising Event by Dye Tactical’s WCP Clan

Another Successful World Combat Paintball (WCP) Magfed Event

by: WCP Clan -> “Hambo”

The day is October 5th, 2013. 0900 hours and the heat is already among us in the hills of North Carolina. Command Decisions Wargames Center, players from all around the south eastern state have gathered to do one thing and one thing only, play MagFed paintball. The training event was scheduled and put on by Chad “Hoot” Moore as an event known as MagFed Uprising to bring awareness to the up and coming gameplay of MagFed paintball.

Companies such as DYE Tactical, Milsig and Stark Pursuit all had strong showings at the event. Each company had something a little different to showcase but all with the same end goal in mind, to support magfed gameplay and make it a more prolific event so that we can bring more players into the sport of paintball. Milsig Paintball had Doug Brown on hand to tech and lend out various models of Milsig markers. Stark Pursuit had their Zeta Mags on hand to demo to pistol players that might not have heard of this slick new magazine. DYE Tactical was represented by their sponsored team WCP to offer FREE Dye Assault Matrix’s as marker loaners, to help spread the word to those that maybe haven’t heard about the DAM. At one point Spanky from WCP even had to loan out his personal DAM due to the demand for DAMs!

At 1000 hours the first type of training game was a 5v5 single mag elimination game. This type of gameplay taught you to be effective with a maximum of 20 rounds and that made it fair across the board with every player.

Next event, onto two magazines and 10v10 central prop games. These games were so fun that it seemed to make me feel as if I were new to the sport again just simply by changing the dynamics of the games due to not having 180 plus rounds at the disposal of one trigger pull. Teams such as Callsign Boxer, Da Immortals, WCP, and a multitude of walk ons all agreed the 10v10 prop games seemed to blur the lines of magfed and other styles of paintball due to its fast pace and adrenaline filled assaults. Team WCP was utilizing their DAMs with Dye CG paint and we were pretty much unstoppable through every round of competition!

After Lunch there was a 2v2 bracket of pistols only hosted by Stark Pursuit. The winners of the 2v2 event each would be awarded with one of the all new Zeta Mags. Stark Pursuit encouraged everyone to come down and play pistols only by supplying players with not only with Zeta Mags to use but also packs and pistols, complete with paint! I personally had never played with the Zeta Mags before but found them very easy to manipulate and convenient to have 20 rounds packed into one pistol mag. Stark Pursuit set the bar for action by giving each player one mag and providing one extra mag in the center of the field for either team to obtain. There were about 20 teams of two from all the players attending. WCP entered three teams with two of those teams making it to the semifinals. At the end, Kraken and Jaws of WCP were the winners of competition and two brand new Zeta mags!

The last part of the event was an hour and half scenario which would be a single hit elimination round where the opfor (Callsign Boxer, Da Immortals, and other players) would have an injured hostage waiting in an undisclosed location on the field. The rescue team (WCP, Tango Alpha Two, and other players) would insert in an undisclosed location and attempt to locate and extract the injured hostage. Sounds easy right? Wrong. While the majority of players were taking shots at each other on the 2v2 pistol competition, Callsign Boxer was hydrating and range testing their SAR12s, DAMs and Milsig markers with first strike rounds. The battle was fierce with the rescue team making a strong push near the end, but Callsign Boxer and the opfor team would go on to prove too much of an adversary to complete the objective within the allotted 90 minute game period, kudos to them.

So when is the next MagFed event? The next organized major MagFed event will be on November 8th, the Friday of Fulda Gap Scenario which is also held at Command Decisions Wargames Center in Taylorsville NC. Don’t have a magfed marker? Don’t worry WCP & Dye Tactical will be onsite with FREE DAM loaners again to let you test drive the markers and see what all the DAM hype is!  Make sure you mark the event on your calendar and come out and join us!

Hambo Out!

Mayhem Big Game – The Pacific 3

On the weekend of the 31st August/ 1st September, I swapped my usual commute on the London Underground (the Tube) and made my way out of town to Romford, Essex to play the Mayhem Big Game – The Pacific 3. Having played the Mayhem Big Games for over 5 years in a row, I knew it was going to be a good weekend!

The Mayhem Big Game is awesome, since it offers something for everyone from: sneaky woods ball action in the lower wood, to the sup air and western field at the top, or even if you want to just check out all the cool vehicles they have all over the site, from tanks to helicopters, to the fighter jet in the staging area!

Its great to see a game that’s grown so much over just a few years, with a lot of the major retailers in the UK attending too. DYE was offering people the opportunity to test drive the DAM in a real scenario, and see how it really holds its own. With all the available DAMs in use the whole weekend, it was clear that a lot of people seemed to be really enjoying themselves testing the marker. The feedback was great – everyone was so impressed by the DAMs versatility, accuracy and complete performance.

On the Saturday, it was great to catch up with lots of familiar faces and take the opportunity to walk around the site. In the afternoon the mini scenario game took place called the Band of Brothers, and there was plenty of sneaky action taking place in the thick woodland. I managed to hold a really strong position against a few pushes from the Japanese thanks to the Dye Cam that I was wearing head to toe.

On the Sunday, we started in the lower woodland and successfully completed almost all of our objectives in the morning. However in the afternoon, despite pushing the opposition right back into one corner of the whole site, we were unable to raise the flag come the end of the game and our win in the morning session wasn’t enough to see us through as the overall winners.

Win or lose its irrelevant, the weather was amazing and everyone left with a smile on their face. Thanks to Mayhem Paintball for another fantastic weekend, for those of you that weren’t there – I’d highly recommend it for next year when it will be held on the 30th and 31st of August in 2014. Thanks to Dye Paintball for the fantastic gear. It performed flawlessly all weekend, catch me on the following social networks and stay tuned for footage from the weekend with my DAM;

Next stop on my ‘Ready for War Tour’ will be StaarGate in just 10 days time.

Be part of the adventure!

Big Win for Dye Tactical – Wolf & Mr. U at Wasaga Beach: Alien Aggression 3

Riding to another Big Win in Wasaga

by Pete “Mr. U” Utschig

The Tactical Ironmen are 7-0 on the season.  The only bad thing about being undefeated is that at each event the pressure keeps building, it easy to get to the top but staying there is the hard part, actually not that hard when your armed with a DAM.

This weekend I joined fellow Tactical Ironman and motivational phenom The Wolf. Our mission was to lead the Human Team “the blue squad ” to victory over the Alien Invasion at Canada’s premier scenario game held at Wasaga Beach Paintball. Close to 2,000 players showed up for the one day battle.

The Wolf and I had our hands full with the deck staked against us. The alien team was ready to rumble with the Canadian powerhouse team the Norther Gunman leading the charge. Wasaga Beach is a amazing event with the staff and refs doing a superb job keeping the fields pristine and the play fair.

Points were changing hands all day with the Aliens holding a lead most of the day, but we all know that the Ironmen are not going out like that. At one point early in the day I found myself in a very precarious situation, like I usually do. I had gotten way too far up the field leading a charge and was alone against about 70 angry Canadians. As my bunker was getting pounded about as hard as my heart was beating I heard a loud thump, guessing it was the first guy coming to bunker me I spun quick only to see another DYE Camo clad blue warrior joining me in my bunker. Not only was I surprised someone else had the balls to enter the battle with unthinkable odds but I was even more surprised to learn my teammate was only 12 years old. Together with our DAM firepower we started to destroy the enemy force.

This seemed to be the theme for the day, Thomas aka the Shadow followed me through every charge, crawl, and firefight. We gave it out and without a question we got it back too. When the smoke settled and the points were tallied the Ironmen and Humans reined supreme!

The Wasaga Beach crew did a amazing job as young and old stayed for the awards ceremonies. DYE graciously donated a ton of prizes, Wolf awarded the oldest combatant at 65 a brand new pair of i4s. But the real winner of the day was Thomas the Shadow who earned his Ironmen patch in front of the cheering crowd. The Shadow is now part of the Tactical Ironmen.

I wanted to thank everyone at Wasaga Beach paintball especially Christine and Larry for putting together a great event. I can’t wait for next year!

Make sure you check out all the video footage from this amazing event. 7-0 and still undefeated I think the numbers speak for themselves if your not on the DYE Tactical side, you’re probably on the losing side. World DAMination!
