Aruba Madness Makes Their Mark at 2012 PSP World Cup

Aruba Madness makes their mark on World Cup 2012

Aruba Madness, a DYE sponsored team from the small Caribbean Island, Aruba, played their hearts out this year at the 2012 PSP World Cup.  These beliers proved this year that it doesn’t matter where you live or how small paintball is where you’re from, all that matters is dedication, training, and heart.  For Aruba Madness, every weekend at practice, every tournament they played away from their country, every dollar they spent was all in preparation for the 2012 PSP World Cup.  Aruba is small, only 69 square miles, and a population of barely 100,000. But like many small countries, what it lacks in size it makes up ten-fold with national pride.

The team spent all of 2012 traveling throughout Latin America to larger events in order to find the toughest competition. They even traveled as far as Florida for a leg of the PSP affiliate league, the CFPS, where Aruba Madness Youngbloodz took first in their division.  When it was Time for World Cup, the boys from Aruba were confident and ready to represent their small country. They knew Aruba paintball could be competitive on the global stage, and they were ready to prove it.

The Aruba Madness camp fielded three teams for World cup this year. AM Kids played well for their first International event, placing just short of a Sunday showing. Aruba madness finished 1st in the prelims and ended up taking 6th overall in their division.  AM Youngbloodz powered through the competition, only losing two games the entire weekend.  Unfortunately, one of those losses came during the finals, and Yougbloodz had to settle for 2nd place.

All three teams from the Aruba Madness camp played with passion and proudly represented their small country all weekend long.  Thrilled at their accomplishments on Sunday afternoon, the team was not content to rest for long. Aruba Madness is already back on the training field, and seeking out tougher competition, with trips to more PSPs planned for next year. The Bar has been set and the goals have been raised; Win World Cup 2013.

“Aruba Madness would like to thank all of our local and international fans very much for all the support. Also we want to give big thanks our sponsors that made this year possible:”

Infernal & STK: 1-2 Finish at 2012 World Cup Asia

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

PALS never fails to put on a spectacular final event, with one of the classiest venues and extreme PR initiatives in paintball, the 2012 World Cup Asia on the island of Langkawi, Malaysia was a major success to say the least.

Dye is proud to announce that two of our flagship Asian teams, Team Infernal of Thailand and Team STK of Australia, met in the finals in Division 1 and brought both the gold and silver medals home to their trophy cases.  Both teams rolled through the prelims and kept their momentum going up until their epic finals match, which ended 4-2 in Infernal’s favor.

Infernal and STK not only competed at WCA, but also had the privilege of competing for the Inter Continental Cup, a division of it’s own that featured some of the most legendary teams in paintball like TonTon and Dynasty.  Despite the intense competition, Infernal finished strong with a fourth place finish, adding yet another accomplishment to their long list of success in the world of competitive paintball.  Congrats guys!

All-Female Team Poison Ivy to Play Division 1 at World Cup Asia 2012

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

For the last 7 years, Team Poison Ivy has been gracing the paintball community with an attractive (and deadly) female roster, ready and willing to compete against any opponents that get put in front of them.  In 2012, Poison Ivy has made a few key pick ups that are going to help them compete against the worlds best at the 2012 World Cup Asia, including Karoline Seheim, Linda Graue, and their newest roster addition/coach Christopher Rønneberg from Drammen Solid.

“It is fun to see that in the last few years, the amount of females playing paintball is growing rapidly” mentions team co-founder Linn Andersen.  ”We attended WCA in 2011 and are excited to be back to the beautiful island of Langkawi and to experience what the organizers say will be even better then the last year. We didn’t think it would be possible to top last year’s event, but we’re sure that if anybody can do it, it’s the WCA organizers.”

What makes these girls different?  They know how to win.  ”We play smart, have very technically good players on the team, and have a good team spirit. All that and more are going to help us go all the way to the top during WCA.”

The 2012 Poison Ivy Roster:

Benedicte Rønneberg (Captain)

Linda Graue

Silje Eriksen

Linn Askevold

Guest players:

Freddie Brockdorff and Cecilia Rickardsson, our friends from FLCharms.

And last, but not least: our coach, and co-player this time, Christopher Rønneberg from Drammen Solid

2012 PSP World Cup – Day 5 Recap

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Another year, another PSP World Cup in the books.  350 teams have come and gone, and one Dye team was just inches from becoming the World Cup Pro Division Champs in 2012.

Damage fought hard all season long, winning the home opener in Galveston and getting on the podium at all but one event this year.  Although they weren’t able to win their finals match against Heat, Tampa Bay Damage made the podium at 4/5 PSP events this season, securing a 2nd place overall finish, a 2nd place a cup, and a mountain of respect from around the league.  Ironmen also ended the year strong with a 4th place finish at cup and 4th place overall finish, and we even had some love from South America as our boys Way Out grabbed 2nd place in D2/3 Race to 2!

On a more serious note, a special moment took place on Sunday afternoon in the Dye Booth, when the Make a Wish Foundation brought one lucky young man to the Dye Photo Wall for a photoshoot with his favorite professional paintball players.  Members of Damage, Ironmen, X-Factor, Infamous, and Houston Heat all took the time to make an appearance for a photo that he and everyone who was there will remember forever.

The Dye Photo Wall was definitely the place to be on Sunday, as players from Damage, Ironmen and CEP were hanging out and taking photos with their fans all afternoon.  The Dye “Polaroid Pics with the Pros” was a major success, with nearly 100 signed polaroid pictures being handed to any fan who stepped up to the red carpet.   This was just one of many fun activities that were going on at the gigantic 2012 PSP World Cup Dye Booth, however, as our new tactical marker, The DAM, was getting some serious attention from fans and store owners alike..

Dealing with the powerful wind that swept across central Florida all week long, the Dye crew was finally able to open up “The DAM Experience” on Sunday, a first hand look at the brand new Dye Assault Matrix.  Anyone willing to wait in line could walk through the Dye Tactical Tunnel, grab a pair of i3 A-Pro goggles, load up a few 20 round mags and go to town on Plexiglas targets and cinder blocks at Dye’s own private shooting range.  The age spectrum was vast and the fun level was high as paintball lovers of all ages lined up to shoot the new DAM free of charge.

Enjoy our photo set from Sunday the 2012 PSP World Cup.  We hope you had a chance to stop by our booth and check out the wide range of 2013 Dye Paintball products.  Be sure to like us on Facebook – Facebook.com/DyePrecisionInc and Facebook.com/DyeTactical, follow us on Instagram @DYEPaintball and Twitter @DyePrecisionInc, and stay updated via our blog for everything Dye related!

2012 PSP World Cup – Day 4 Recap

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

Another day, another incredible set of matches brought to us by the PSP & PaintballAccess.com!

Saturday was crunch time, the last chance for teams to prove that they deserve to be competing for the coveted 2012 World Cup Champion title.  Two teams that are definitely in the hunt are the Los Angeles Ironmen and Tampa Bay Damage.  Both teams had close matches early in the day, with Ironmen squeezing out a win over Impact, hanging the winning flag with only 10 seconds left to spare.  Damage let their early game against XSV slip through their fingertips as XSV was able to upset them 3-2, but immediately stole their momentum back when they squared off against the Ironmen and won convincingly 6-1.

Off the field, the Dye booth tried something new & fun at this event, a ‘Polaroid Pics with the Pros’ session at the official Dye Photo Wall.  Proffesional players from the Ironmen, CEP and Damage were snapping pics for hours with their fans who all got to take home the photo and get them signed by their favorite players.

Enjoy the Saturday photo gallery, log on to www.PaintballAccess.com for the pristine webcast live from the event, and get ready for an exciting day of PSP Paintball tomorrow!

SUNDAY SCHEDULE:

Ironmen vs. Infamous – 8:00 am

Damage vs. (TBD) – 11:50 am
