Dye Tactical’s Pete “Mr. U” Utschig Reports from North vs South Big Game in the UK

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

We sent Pete “Mr. U” Utschig across the pond to attend the largest scenario paintball game in the UK – North v South.  He came back with a bag full of empty clips, a massive kill count, and a new respect for the British paintball scene.

By Pete “Mr. U” Utschig

“3 days, 2000 players and 7,000 miles later I’m home from another epic adventure. Last weekend I set out to meet with the DYE Europe crew and Team Tactical Nexus. I was invited to be one of the South’s Team Generals in Englands largest scenario game, “North vs South”.

The game centers around Sundays major event which pits players from Northern England against players from the South. The three day event is advertised as a paintball festival, and that’s exactly what it is. Players from all over Europe come to camp, shop, party, and of course play paintball. To start things off, we played a little CQB.  Check out this video of me changing my DAM to Recon Mode:

 

Friday players and vendors set up and were treated to 20 vrs 20 mini games. DYE Europe, myself and a couple of the Nexus players set up a DAM demo allowing all the mini game players to take the DAM out for a run. The feedback was the same as always… “This gun is insane” or “Best gun I have ever shot”.

Saturday the game format broke the competitors in two teams.  One team was made up of only English players,  the other was the rest if the world. I got to play alongside long time friend and Northern team guest general, Greg Hastings.  Lucky for Greg, he was on my team Saturday because on Sunday he felt the sting of my DAM. Unfortunately for Greg, it was all caught on my Replay camera that he gave me.

Sunday was the big battle, along side Team Tactical Nexus we brought the pain train, completing all but one of our missions. As the day fell to a close, we ultimately were short on points and the Northern Team led by Jed Green and Greg Hastings were victorious. It was another welt filled weekend but the games were intense, the people were amazing and the camera footage is epic. I wouldn’t have had it any other way!!! Bloody Knuckles, Ironmen Style.

See you guys at Living Legends with the rest of the Ironmen!!!”

Velocity Paintball’s “Santas vs. Grinches” Big-Game a Major Success

Monday, December 17th, 2012

December 16th, 2012: Santa’s vs. Grinches Scenario Big-Game @ Velocity Paintball, Ramona CA

This past weekend, DYE made an appearance at one of Southern California’s oldest paintball parks and retail outlets, Velocity Paintball in Ramona, California.  The game type was fun, the turnout was excellent, and the DYE booth was poppin’ with players testing out the brand new DAM’s, DM13′s, and Reflexes that were on display, free of charge.

It’s amazing what a kid will do to win free DYE products.  Going into the event, DYE had a few of the 2013 i4 Goggles to give away but weren’t exactly sure how they wanted to award them to the loyal DYE fans at the event.  With a little help from Denise from Velocity, a stand on one foot/rub your belly/tap your head contest was born, and after nearly 30 minutes of intense tapping, spinning, jumping, and avoiding incoming grenades, a winner finally emerged.

Over 100 players from all over California joined in on the action, including some of Dye’s flagship players like Justin “LJ” Schwarz from the Los Angeles Ironmen and “Trucker Billy” Robertson from the Tactical Ironmen.

Overall the event was nothing but good times and smooth sailing.  The reefing was excellent, there was a friendly holiday vibe, and it seemed like everyone at Velocity Paintball Park went home with a big smile on their face.

Pete “Mr. U” Utschig Reports from Navikill in Ecuador

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Pete “Mr. U” Utschig of the Tactical Ironmen reports from his latest tactical adventure in Ecuador -

“The last event of this year for the Tactical Ironmen had the guys split between Wayne’s World Game in Florida where the Ironmen were led by Mike Paxson and Billy Wing, and the event I went too in Guayaquil Ecuador. Although I heard amazing things about the Wayne’s World  Game I am really happy I made the trip to Ecuador.

The Tactical Event I played was called Navikill which in Spanish means the Christmas Kill, very fitting. The event was organized by Ecuador’s  top ranked tactical team Waiakill, and  the team puts on an amazing event . The game pitted three teams of 35 players each in a virtual tug of war. The field was 500 yards long with two rows of two-story cement houses full of alleys, windows and corridors.

It was a tactical paintball player’s dream come true, especially one armed with a DYE DAM. There were kills to be had around every corner. Two teams competed at a time while the third team judged. The team’s mission was to acquire a key from the other team’s safe zone and then unlock a chained up hostage located in a maze in the center of the field. Both teams had the same assignments, which meant the gunfights in the center of the field were intense.

Paint was raining from every window above and below, nowhere was safe. Games were 30 minutes long and re-generation was allowed in the first 15 , which meant the first 15 minutes were full blown slugfest and the last 15 a tactical a chess match. There was no leaving the field to reload or air up. This left me at a huge advantage with a couple of loaded first strike clips in my harness. I was eliminating players at will with my DAM while they were struggling, down to my last rounds.

During lunch, with the help of Luis from DYE Ecuador and Team Evolution, and Gazzu also from DYE Ecuador and Team Zurikatas, we organized a 2 vs. 2 Tactical DAM tournament and Sniper competition. All the players involved were blown away by the DAMs accuracy, versatility, and fire power. I hope that we are able to adopt this set up at some tactical events next year. It was some of the most fun paintball I have ever played. Make sure you check back for all the POV video footage coming soon!”
