Millennium Series | Campaign Cup – London

The Millennium series 3rd leg takes us to a unique corner of England. Basildon, Essex. Where the fake-tan girls are as orange as the fruit, and the gym-happy men clearly missed the importance of legs day. They must be doing something right though, as every year we have been in Basildon the weather has been amazing.

Interesting locals aside, I actually quite enjoy this event. Partly because you aren’t playing lucky dip when choosing food on the menu, partly because its only an hour from home, but mainly because its a well run event, and although its the smaller event in terms of team numbers, the Nations Cup event adds an extra bit of fun for everyone.

The continued theme of having no traditional back-centre bunker on the field has given everyone a new challenge this year, and it’s interesting to see how teams have approached this. Some have thrived and others haven’t. This field was no different, and most matches saw the bravest players on each team playing in the complete open space where the back centre should be. Trying to not blink first against their opponent.

The Pro division is getting tougher by the event as teams continually up their game. With the strongest team line up in the last 5 years teams cannot afford to make any mistakes, as there is a queue of quality opposition waiting to take advantage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

London Nexus committed this ultimate sin, coming out flat against Infamous in the first game and then letting a 4-2 lead slip against Marseille Icon to leave them heading home much earlier than planned. Toulouse TonTon fared a little better. Qualifying for the quarterfinals 2nd place in their bracket after losing to Frankfurt Syndicate on Friday afternoon. That would be as far as the current series leaders would go, losing a hard fought match against the impressive Art Chaos Moscow.

In the SPL prelims, semi-pro team Drammen Solid stomped everyone 4-0 and carried form through to a 4th place finish come Sunday, losing out to fellow DYE team Offenburg Comin At Ya who took 3rd to maintain their hopes of earning an automatic promotion spot to the Pro division next year.

Drammen Solid told us how they felt the event went for them,

“Even though a top 4 placing is good in the tough SPL division, it feels bad to loose both the semi final and the battle for 3rd. In the semi, Hellwood got the best of us in the beginning of the match and scored 2 quick points. We stepped it up a bit, but it was too little too late and we lost 4-2. In the battle for 3rd, Comin at Ya had watched us well in previous games and beat us quickly 4-0. Congrats to Comin at Ya on another top finish. We will return stronger in Paris and we’re looking for that win!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In D1 Scorpions Milano continued their impressive run of form taking 2nd at the event and moving into the top spot in the series standings. They now made the top 4 at 6 of the last 7 Millennium events – only missing out in Bitburg last year.

Scorpions Team Captain said;

“Winning the head to head against London Defiance, allowed the team to achieved the top position in the Division 1 overall ranking. Getting the team even closer to their main goal promotion in to the SPL. With final results of second, third and second places in the previous events of the Millennium Series, the team is now preparing for the last event in Paris. GO GO SCORPIONS!!!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

D2 saw Bitburg champions Durham DV8 march all the way to the top 4 again, but the home win was not to be. However they now sit 2nd over all and are looking good for promotion to D1 next year – not bad for a team who has never made it to Sunday. DV8 seem to be benefitting from the Clint Moore | Art Of Winning training program!

Poison Ivy just missed out on another podium finish with 2 of their games going in to over time and one game running out of time. Never the less the Girls are still flying high in 3rd overall the highest position for a all female paintball team in a long time.

Division Three saw the Ugly Ducklings2 and Lethal Bizzle both came through the prelims 4 & 1, with Lethal Bizzle then powering through the knock out rounds and defeating the top-ranked team Apocalypse Brussels in the final to take an awesome home win!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Nations cup provided an impressive showing of its own, with 16 European nations fighting out for the chance to be Champions of Europe. As the sun was setting on Saturday evening, just the usual suspects remained – France, Germany, Great Britain and Russia. Featuring players from the top teams in country, there were familiar faces from Nexus, TonTon, Vision and Comin At Ya. All the finals were very tight games, with national pride on the line Great Britain faced up to Russia for a repeat of last years final.

Shooting the awesome DYE CG Paint team GB took the fight to the Russians, but ultimately ran out of time with the match finely poised at 2-1. The Brits are getting closer to regaining the crown the Russians took from them last year, but will have to wait until 2014 for the next opportunity.

 

DYE’s European teams take to the field with the flawless DM13, combined with the unparalleled DYE Rotor and I4 goggle systems and shooting the supreme DYE CG Paintballs.

Nexus | Back 2 Back CPPS Champions

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

 

Another rainy day at the CPPS…

Out of the 6 tournaments we have played so far this year, 4 of them have been in the rain. In fact I’m starting to feel like I need to pack a snorkel in my kitbag.

Nonetheless we got down to business on a typically wet English Summers day for Round3 of the CPPS series.

Although its not a classic ‘Nexus-style’ layout, I feel we understand the nature of this field quite well. We gave a dominant performance on the day, winning all four of our group games, and the final against fellow pro team Birmingham Disruption, only dropping a total of 4 points in the day.

Flawless equipment goes a long way to making winning possible, and the DM13s, Rotors, I4s and CG Paintballs were just that.

I’d also like to congratulate the other teams who were successful with DYE CG paint this weekend; Bad Moji, who actually won two tournaments in two days with CG, Team Spank, who came 2nd in D2 using CG, Durham DV8 who continued their dominant form in the UK Masters, and OTP who also took a podium finish at the Masters event.

The next stop for Nexus is Milan, Italy, for the CPS series Round3 where we continue our preparations for the Millennium Series event in Basildon where we want to improve upon our 3rd place finish in Bitburg.

 

 

GK Are Coming For The Title

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

 

Created at the end of 2010 by former players from SPL, the Paris based team Generation Kill , gives everything to insure the victory.
When training 2 to 3 times a week all along the season the team are making multiple sacrifices for victory. In our first season GK won the 1st place in the Parisian Regional League in the SPL format (Like PSP with 4 points), and came 2nd place to Vision Marseille during the French National Championship. Then finally to end that season GK players decided to enter the last leg of the Millennium at Euro Disney, they entered Division 2 given that it was the highest division left unlocked, and finished the season there with a 1st place victory.

In 2012, they got the opportunity enter into the Millennium series in SPL (Semi Pro League), under the name Boost Air / GK, and received crucial support from Dye Europe providing them with incredible gear, guns, and the amazing Proto Advantage paint for training and the best paint ever; DYE CG paint for our tournaments.

Even with great support, the launch of the season was really complicated stepping up to SPL. However the players worked hard to compete with the quality of their opponents all along the season which made the event results get better .

At the end of the 2012 season, the team GK succeeded to reach the 8th place despite really difficult brackets throughout.

During the 2012 season GK also participated a private tournament series; The War Town Series, and they reached joined 3rd place with CPL teams, Camp Carnage and Marseille Icon. Unfortunately for GK only the point average made the difference.
In 2013, team GK re-entered the French National scene and won 2 leagues. First they won the Regional Parisian League, and then the French National Championship without a single defeat in 17 matches in SPL format.

Also this season they chose to enter The War Town Series again, and take their revenge on Carnage and Icon by beating them, and finally won the private series, reaching the 1st place without a single defeat.

Starting from the 8th place in SPL for the Millennium Series, the team GK is trying to confirm its success on the European scene by getting to the top of the series.

Unfortunately the first event in Puget (France) GK struggled to reach the quarter final, and had no success. GK was beaten by London Tigers. Leaving the team 8th position on the scoreboard overall.

The second event in Bitburg (Germany) GK had serious difficulties during the prelims. Struggling to keep a strong spirit on the field, they were close to losing their confidence. However after the prelims they reviewed their failures, and took the good decisions to ensure the success of the tournament.

After the prelims GK was transfigured, and beat Force Majeure Moscow 4-0, then fought another French team Bad Element and ended with a 3-0 win making them qualify for the semi finals putting them against Freestyle Moscow, and won yet again with a 4-0 victory.

 Then came the finals in which GK was confronted by London Tigers and lost 1-0.

Tigers were playing really strong and efficient on both sides of the field.

GK lost the Dorito side players after a penalty, and also lost their Snake insert player directly off the break, leaving just 2 players alive; one in the snake 50, and one in the snake corner.

Tigers were luckier with 4 players alive. 2 on the snake side, in the corner and in snake 1, the two others on the dorito side.

Unfortunately for the Tigers playing on the dorito side, they were shot as they moved up by the two GK players remaining on the field leaving it down to a 2v2. Both teams did a good job of locking each other into their bunkers, so good that after the 10 minute fight the match ended in a draw. The draw led the semi finals to a 1 point semi final. Unfortunately for GK the situation remained the same, seeing its dorito side eliminated on penalties off the break, but this time Tigers were much more efficient and crushed the remaining GK players in a blink of an eye, then going on to take 1st place of the SPL division to Force Majeure.

At the end of the Millennium German event, GK took the 3rd position on the general ranking. Now all the team is working hard to maintain itself on the podium.

All the players in GK want to thank Dye Europe so much for its amazing support. The DM13’s shot straight, and the Dye CG always broke on its target. We are sure this combination is one of the reasons for GK’s success.

Also the team wants to thank its field partner Eastwood Paintball.
