DRX Wins MY-NPL Event #4 in Beautiful Melaka!

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Suspense, drama, commitment , love and honour… sounds like the making of a good read on a warm and breezy weekend. Fortunately, and thank God for our Team DRX, we get to experience all these first-hand last weekend at the MYNPL (Malaysian Paintball League) 2013 Finale in the historical city of Malacca.

Knowing how crucial it was, we prepared and trained ourselves mentally to face the onslaught. This event we have the honour of playing with the top teams from Malaysia and Thailand. What a finale it is going to be!

On Saturday’s qualifying rounds, we tried out different formations on the field to find what suits our playing styles to get us ready for Sunday games. We came out 2-2 to finish 5th. Good enough to move onward to Sunday.

Come Sunday, we were mentally and physically prepared, the team was ready to go all the way to the top. We won convincingly against Dark Kinghts (4-1, Qtr) and Recda Waxers (4-0, Semis) to set up the dream final against Team Aisawan of Thailand.

We have played the Thai team twice this year and the record was 1-1, nail biting games every time and we expect nothing different this time round as they always played to their best.

Come finals, our team drew first blood and won a quick first point but the Thais responded by winning the next 2 points in a race to 4. The seesaw battle rages on till the game clock stops with a score line of 3-3. Wow….the first ever overtime decider game in a Division 1 final!

Going into the overtime game, the silence is deafening, the 2 minutes feels like an eternity. But we told ourselves, we are not just playing for the team but the honour of our country is at stake here too…We gave it our all….

In the end, it was enough… We hung on to our last ounce of strength to hang the flag and the victory was complete! What a finale and that’s why we love playing paintball.

A big thank you to DYE and our sponsors for making this win possible and memorable. A special big shout out to Dye CG paint and the DM 13s, it definitely completes and makes us the champions that we are. We look forward to 2014 and another fruitful partnership with Dye Precision.

 

Hulk Recaps World Cup 2013

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

In the United States, World Cup comes to an end. World Cup is held annually in October outside of Orlando, Florida. Cup hosted more than four hundred of best teams from all 50 states and 35 countries. Thereby setting an absolute record for the competition which has been running for more than 10 years.

In addition to good weather and excellent organization of the event, we were also pleased to see:

1) Organizers went back to the standards of the field size of the 2010 season, which corresponds to the current European standards.

2) Revival of the 10man format, one of the oldest in the world of paintball formats.

Among the huge number of participants were two Ukrainian teams, Hulk Kiev and Freestyle Kiev. Hulk played in two formats. As usual in Race to 5, and new to the team, but not to the world of paintball format, 10 – Man.

The format of 10 man is distinguished by several features. First, there are no restrictions on the level – the player of any class from novice to Pro can be passed to rookie tournament. The field is much bigger than 5man. Most importantly, coaching is completely forbidden. All this makes the game much “slower”, but each player takes an independent decision and the teams with the problems in communication stand no chance of winning.

Team Hulk was able to adapt quickly enough to the game in this format and was able to win all six qualifying games, receiving the highest rate in the tournament – 96.5! For comparison, the next highest-ranking team scored only 82.16. After overcoming another preliminary round of the competition, which has become more difficult to win (Hulk is only one point ahead of his nearest rival, the U.S. team «PPS SFO») Hulk fell in the final group , consisting of four teams .

Pleased to note that in the final group, was one more representative of the post-Soviet space, the command Desperados from Russia. The remaining two teams “Tour deForce” and “Annihilators” represented the United States. In 10man players competed from such famous teams as Russian Legion, Ironman, CEP and others.

All participants in the final four were worthy of each other! Only the “Annihilators” with the help of a number of pro players could win all the matches. The other teams won and lost with varying degrees of success, very densely settled down in the final standings. Only a point separated second and third place! Fortunately, it was Hulk that took second place in the World Cup 2013! Desperados taking fourth.

Four sets of medals in the four years of participation in the World Cup. The first medal for Ukraine in the format of ” tens”. These are great achievements with which the team returned home from Orlando!

We would like to express our deep gratitude to the sponsors of the team; information – Autoradio and to DYE for the awesome equipment!

Also many thanks to the permanent leader and team captain, Iaroslav. Coach Alexander, and the permanent leader and inspirer of the pit team, Oksana. Thanks for all their hard work, as well as to all those who supported our team throughout the season!
