Aisawan takes 1st at PALS Thailand!

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

We, AISAWAN Team, joined PALS THAILAND tournament 2014. We are expecting a high achievement since we got only 2nd place and 4th place in the last two times before. Those experiences pushed us to work harder, spent more time practicing and planning strategy.

Also we got 4 championships from another tournament previously, therefore it quite encouraged our teammates to do the best for PALS tournament this year.

First round, did not go well, but it wasn’t too late. We adjusted our strategy and made improvements. It was rewarded in the next round, on and on, until finally we made it. Championship was our achievement as expected for all of our hard work!

This made our 5th championship of this year. We are looking forward and won’t stop for another chance to complete for Aisawan’s legend and glory!

Thank you to ‘Dye’, for our great equipment support all along.

WAIAKILL – DYE TACTICAL TAKES OVER UWL ECUADOR

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

It’s endless summer here in Ecuador and our paintball season never ends. WAIAKILL – DyeTactical began 2014 training hard and focused on local and international UWL (Ultimate Woodsball League) tournaments, among other events we will attend this year.
We started getting our new 2014 gear in as soon as possible to adjust rapidly to the change. Less weight, smaller size, improved accuracy and air efficiency on our new DM14′s, allowed us to maximize performance and carry more paint in our vests (as UWL has no limit on the amount of paintballs you can bring into the field). Additionally, the macro line was removed from the new DM design, which meant less tangling up with branches and bushes, just as the DAM, which we were already used to since its release last year.
The tournament took place in “Cerro del Muerto” in the town of Playas, Ecuador on the 15 and 16 of February. Besides the tough opponents and intense games, the biggest challenges of this amazing field were the extreme weather conditions. Temperature ranging between 90 to 95F (32-34C), lots of mud, intense sun and humidity to the roof, made it difficult enough just to be there with no gear on. Thanks to the support of our DYE distributor, Luis Neira, we got ahold of enough Dye  Pop-up Tents to manage the weather and stay fresh and focused for the games. DYE tech support on site was another of the keys to success.

WAIAKILL – DyeTactical went in the tournament with 3 teams (15 players   on each team, 10 on court and 5 replacements).
Each team had 4 games played randomly among all competitors. The two most successful teams went to finals.
WAIAKILL ALPHA won all its games and got a solid 4 – 0 to go into finals. Meanwhile WAIAKILL BRAVO met ALPHA on its third game and got its first loss. In the final match WAIAKILL ALPHA met again with Team Dragones, who barely made it into second place in an extremely close match (4 point difference) with  BRAVO, who was favorite to play finals but got in third place.
The final game was not an easy one, mostly because of the exhaustion and tension. Scouts from the two opossing teams went for different  flags on the initial run, making it a tie in the first minutes of the match. WAIAKILL ALPHA’S aggressiveness got ahold of the lost flag before the first 10-minute brake and retained it through the entire game. The hooch was found during the second break, adding up more points to the overal score. With both flags and the hooch in our hands, our game was mathematically unreachable. We knew we could go all in for their home flag after the second break and pushed hard to try to end the game early. Dragones defended well and prevented us to advance to their home base flag. After 30 minutes of intense physical effort the game was over and we had won UWL Ecuador first chapter. WAIAKILL BRAVO came in third place, getting WAIAKILL – DyeTactical two places in the podium.
We are now training hard for the second chapter that will take place in Quito, Ecuador, May 3-4. We will try to keep on adding points on UWL’s local and international ranking.
We’ll keep you posted on the advances of UWL and other events.

Come meet and share with us at the DYE Store in Living Legends 7, May 16-18.
Keep on balling!!

STK brings the heat to the Super7 in Sydney!

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

We went to Sydney on the east coast of Australia a few weeks ago to compete in the first leg of Australia’s national series, the Super 7′s. The last time we played in this league was 2009. It was great to come back to it. The infrastructure and refereeing was excellent. We really enjoyed the event.

We won all of our prelim games except against SWAT, who we drew.

Our weekend started with us going down two points to Explicit, but Farran ran through and got 4 G’s in the third point and we were able to run away with it from there. We had a couple of other close calls in the prelims, but thankfully we were able to close those games out. Our weekend grew to a climax with our second last match of the prelims against nVs. The winner of this game would go onto the finals.

Our game against them felt good; we’d worked out all the kinks from the prelims and we were working as a machine. We had a good fight against them and won 3-2.

Our final preliminary game was against SWAT – but we’d both already made it through to the finals, so we used the opportunity to feel them out. They had our friend “Oat” (ex-Infernal/Xtioneers) playing for them and Kyle Spica of San Diego Dynasty. We made sure our break-shooting was on point and injected as much chaos as we could into our game plans to try not give anything away for our finals match. We timed the match out at 2-2. We went onto the finals for a rematch.

The finals started well for us, with us making our break-shots and followed shortly with us closing the first point out. The next point, we both lost bodies on the break, and the game whittled down to a 2 vs 3, with just Travis and Farran left in either corner. They stayed cool and burnt off about 8 minutes from the game clock before being edged out by SWAT. So the score was 1-1 with 1:30 left on the clock. The next point we were able to make our initial kill on the dorito-side off the break and then caught some subsequent players filling out to that side. With about 30 seconds left, it was just Kyle Spica left in a 5 vs 1. He still managed to catch two of us, but we were able to eliminate him and Stevie sealed the deal, hitting the buzzer with 8 seconds left on the clock.

Winning felt great, and the environment at the Super 7’s was accommodating, professional and… premium. It also had a huge prize pool. I’d recommend playing these events to any of our PALS friends.

Maybe a little bit before the event, people were saying things like “show them who is the best in Australia.” Playing paintball, there has been no shortage of people I’ve come across who have these self-proclaimed titles or that have over-inflated egos. Success in paintball is so fickle. And I often find these self-proclaimed heroes are just frustrated with the game because they are always trying to justify themselves or live up to something rather than just enjoy the experiences. And really who cares? If you think you’re good then just keep it to yourself. Your performance can speak for itself. I guess where I am going with this is that I’m not interested in asserting titles.  All I can say is that going full circle and being back at the Super 7′s after keeping the team together for this long — it feels good to say that it hasn’t all been for nothing.

We’ve had a few months with our DM14’s now and we love them even more. Thanks to Devon and DYE for their continued support going into the 4th year of our sponsorship with them. And to our paintball mum and dad, Brad and Christine.

Team Aisawan sets the pace for the 2014 season!

Speed Aisawan

During the past weekend, 8 – 9 February 2014, we were involved in one of Thailand’s biggest paintball events “Thailand Paintball Official Circuit”, the first event of the year.

Day 1 started off early in the morning with high hopes and enthusiasm. We played against 3 opponents but the results didn’t go as planned. The first round continued into Day 2 where we were back on track by winning both games in the morning and were able to go through to the semi final round ranked 4th overall. Our opponent for the semi final round was Virgin Aisawan who we lost to in Day 1. However we stuck to our game plan and beat them 2-0, which brings us to the final round of TPOC event meeting with team Hornet from Chonburi. With a little tradition, for TPOC’s final game; names were announced, gears ready and game on. The score ended with 2-0, game over, champion by team Speed Aisawan.

To sum up, the event has brought us great joy and experience. 2014 await and we’ll never stop practicing until our goals are accomplish.

We would like to thank the event organizers and all supporters. A big thank you to Mr. Acha Aisawan, and DYE

Dye teams dominate the fierce Latin American EPPL series.

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

December 13-15 was the fourth and last event of the 2013 Ecuadorian Professional Paintball League (EPPL) and it was held in the capital city of Quito. Being held in the middle of the mall  San Luis Shoppin, this was good to have a great attendance from public, this EPPL event had double importance because it will decide the overall rankings in all  of the divisions. 30 teams register, we had a showdown, the games were as fierce as paintball could get.  Really aggressive games, great points and plays.

The event begun Thursday with a press meeting and meet and greet with Marcello Margot, Oliver Lang and the South American Dream Team.  The Dream Team continue the pursuit of their dream to become the first Latin America PRO TEAM. DYE was present on the event as always with the spectacular DYE booth offering all the 2014  DYE products and the best paint in the Market. The Dye Paint truck was full of people unloading paint one after another.  DYE teams Dominated the event in almost every Division, DYE team Zurikatas were playing in their home field  CQB Paintball Field and had their home crowd in the stand cheering from them and their younger teams.

Zurikatas, one of  DYE’s flagship sponsored teams in Ecuador, were on fire and went undefeated  directly to  the finals. and were waiting for the winner between the other DYE ‘s Sponsor team Evolution and  the Latin AmericanDream Team. Like all the finals this year in the top division was between both DYE teams, Zurikatas took this final with a score 4- 0 against Evolution. Zurikatas also won the Series and overall 2013 Championship .

Division 3 had a similar outcome, with Zurikatas Silver going undefeated directly to the finals, In the finals Zurikatas Silver matched up against Inka Killers, from Lima Peru (also a DYE team). In the final the local team Zuriktas Silver won 4-0 and with that took the championship and also the series and overall Championship 2013.

Division 5 had more DYE teams on the podium, Evolution PB School took first place.  Third place was taken by local team APF. Third place was enough to give APF the series and overall 2013 D5 championship in their first year.

Congratulations to all the teams that made the EPPL QUITO and the season such a success. The 2013 EPPL season is over, but the 2014 EPPL Season starts in February.  So, If you love to travel and play paintball don’t miss this event.
