nVs wins another intense fight!

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Round 2 of the Australian Super 7s series was held in May at Action Paintball. 10 teams were all vying for the top spot in the Professional Division. We knew that if we didn’t bring our A game we were going to be in for a tough weekend of paintball.

We started on the Friday with a walk of the field. After coming up with a couple of game plans that we were happy with, we called it a day and went back to make sure all our gear was prepped and ready for the weekend.

Saturday morning rolled around and we were the first game of the day. We were up against SYDNEY EXPLICIT. Explicit had brought over Devon Stutz from Dye to play with them. We started off well coming away with a 3-2 win. Our next few games were against NZ Clown Monkeys, Shenanigans and East Side Raw, all of which we also took the win. Our last game of the day was against STK. This was going to be our hardest game of day 1 but also a good test to see if all of our training after the first round had paid off. It was a fast-paced game with both teams taking quick points and throwing everything at each other. At the end of time we came away with the win at 3-2.

On Sunday we had four games to play before finals. We were up against Apparition, Uprising, Relentless and Sydney SWAT. Having taken only wins up to our SWAT game, we knew we would be playing off for 1st or 2nd in the Finals. SWAT had brought over Blake Yarber from San Diego Dynasty, and this game was to be our hardest game for day 2 before Finals. It was also going to decide whom we would play off in the final as STK and SWAT had both suffered losses while we remained undefeated. Given our on-field relationship with SWAT, this was going to be the grudge match of the weekend, especially for SWAT as they tried to keep their finals hopes alive. After some long drawn out points it ended in a 2-all draw. This meant we would be facing STK in the final for 1st or 2nd.

The Final.

What a game this was. The end score absolutely does not reflect how tough the match actually was. Both teams came out swinging from the blocks. We were able to get an early 2 point lead. We swapped ends where STK were able to take the next point – they weren’t going down without a fight. After quickly regrouping we were able to take the next 2 points and come away with the 4-1 win!

In closing, we would like to thank everyone who came down and supported us in the pits or just by cheering for us over the weekend. It really helps us a lot. A big shout out goes to our sponsors Devon Stutz, Dye Precision and Paintball Addiction. Our gear performed flawlessly all weekend and without you guys none of this would be possible.

Round 3 will be held in August and we’re aiming to keep up the good work and bring home another win.

Pro Team DNX wins SARPL Event #2!

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Team DNX had a great showing at Event 2, that was played at Blades & Triggers field in East of Johannesburg.

DNX started the morning in the race to 3 Pro 5man bracket, but were not able to win there 1st match losing 2-3 to Reaper. Then the following games they were able to find their feet and won all prelim games up to the finals.

Finals started late Sunday afternoon. With the South African sun starting to set as winter is making its way into the City of JHB.

DNX played Reaper in the finals and went up 2 points. They then lost a point to Reaper, but with a dirty hang the score sat at 2-0 in DNX’s favor. With 4min on the clock Reaper came back with a win, setting up the last 1.40 min to try to even the score and force over time. The score is 2/1 but DNX came out the gate firing and heated for the WIN smashing up Reaper to seal the WIN 3/1!!!

The team showed great composure and wanted the win. DNX hands down out played all the Pro teams at the event.

SA’s RPL 2013 champions are showing they are in the running to WIN 2014!

 

Infernal sweeps TPOC #2 in Thailand!

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Held in Pattaya Paintball Club, Pattaya, Thailand was the 2nd leg of TPOC Tournament Series. The event was great although it was hard to re-organize the team as we lost 3 main players from last year. We brought 3 D2 players from up country and it’s pretty hard for us to get together for training. So hard in fact, that we didn’t have a single practice before the tournament. We tried hard to reform the team to make it stable as soon as possible with positioning, game plan, but most importantly have fun.

Day 1 in the preliminary round we won over PRC Blueblood 3-2 / Hellbourne 3-2 / Demonic 3-1 and Speed Aisawan 3-0. For day2 prelims, we won over Aisawan 2-1 / CMX 3-0

Semi-final round, we met PRC Blueblood with young and aggressive players. So we were forced to concentrate on breakout and counter attack plan. We won 3-1.

In the final, we met Aisawan another strong team in Thailand. What ever happen throughout the match, we planned to keep the rhythm of the game and take advantage of it. The first set took 6mins. We both planned to counter attack with little opportunity. We held on long enough to win the first point. Yet we lost our 2nd set to Aisawan as they were playing a fast break plan and they tied it 1-1. With 22 seconds left, we head to overtime. In the overtime game, anything can happen. We thought that we are doing our best and we made it so far, let’s give it 100% and have fun…. We won! Winning the overtime point solidified us as Champion for TPOC 2nd Leg.

Special thanks to Expressway Paintball Club of Thailand, DYE Precision, Pattaya Paintball Club , EST Cola and TPOC.

Hulk wins again!

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Almost a month after the first stage of the Championship in France, we headed to the second event in Germany.

The team has preliminary preparation for the tournament, having played in the first stage of the Cup of Ukraine in Lviv. Even then, despite the confidence of the team due to victory in all of our matches, it became clear that the field is very “sticky”.  With huge corridors and low variability in the line of attack, movement on this field was minimal. This view is confirmed in sparring leading up to the tournament in Bitburg , with a strong contender – team “Russian Roulette”. Unfortunately, due to force majeure, both of our American legionnaires missed their flight, and considering the compactness of our team at this stage, only four players can participate in practice.

Americans arrived only the day of the tournament, which significantly affected the quality of their game in the first game day. After spending 15 hours in an aircraft and not knowing the field, it was very hard to count on the high-quality game that we are used to. To confirm our concerns, the first match of the tournament with a Norwegian Drammen Solid ended in a 1-3 loss with 4 penalties.

In the next match, we needed a victory over representatives from Denmark, Ugly Ducklings Odense, otherwise we would not venture out of the bracket! All things considered, the resolute attitude and motivation, did not cease to amaze! Final score 4-2 in our favor and 4 penalties! Another penalty in Saturday’s match against Norwegian Ronholt Blast almost turned the match with an outsider group in lottery. A heavy 2-1 victory sent us to Sunday!

In the Sunday morning game, we met with the Moscow team Force Majeure. Solidifying our lead 3-1 and eliminating all players; we receive another hot gun penalty, giving us another nervous game! 3-2 final victory!

In quarterfinals, we met with the Scorpions from Milan. This team represent 5 countries, originally led by Maximus Lundquist. This match saw long points and traditional penalties, but we take the win 2-1!

In the semifinals, fate brought us to Amsterdam Heat from Holland. In the first stage, we met with the team and won convincingly 4-0. Not everything was so easy this time! After losing residence in the CPL division, the team has the ambition to go back and confirm their skills! Penalty for mashing in overtime is not allowed to pass on the Dutchmen! A well-deserved third place and we are once again in the finals!

Uncertain in their game in the first stage, the Roosters Ulm Germany overcame all of their rivals and reached the finals at home!

The first point of the final game has developed not very well for us. Alex Goldman left on breakout, and after ten seconds we lose Marcelo Margott. After 30 seconds we are down to a 2 on 4. After nearly a seven minute game, we are down to a 1 on 2 of which the 2 players began almost simultaneously running at his bunker. A close call by the judges declared shooting after elimination and they received a 2 for 1 penalty. Next game we started against only three! Hitting one of the contenders in the first 10 seconds of the game and keeping all our players, we have a good chance to win this game for the remaining 3 minutes of playing time. We successfully took advantage, knocking out all rivals with 40 seconds to spare. Given the specifics of the field, it became clear that the fate of the meeting will be decided in overtime, which we spent at a high level, leaving no chance for the opponent and keeping his team’s four players!

This is our second victory in Division 1 SPL. What a great feeling and the chances of getting into the next division at the end of the series!

We express our gratitude to everyone who helps and supports. Special thanks to our permanent partner “Auto radio”, DYE – the best producer of paintball equipment, “Polar Bears” team for help in the pit area, our favorite captain Iaroslav and coach Alexander Pristupov, as well as all of our fans.

See you on the fields!
