Games have officially begun at the 2012 PSP World Cup, and the new DM13′s, Ultralite Pants/Jerseys, and C13 are looking fresh!
Tampa Bay Damage and Los Angeles Ironmen got off to a great start today, both winning their matches convincingly. Damage took down Upton 187 cRew 7-3 and the Ironmen breezed through Seattle Thunder 7-0.
The real story of the day was Chattanooga CEP, as they came out STRONG against two very tough opponents, Moscow Red Legion and X-Factor. CEP had the advantage on the Russians early, keeping the game close at 3-3. Penalties unfortunately took the wind out of their sails, and they struggled to keep up their momentum, eventually losing 3-7. Again versus X-Factor, CEP was able to get off to a great 2-2 start, but couldn’t stay consistent and lost 2-7. CEP that they are able to compete with some of the toughest teams in paintball, but their inability to stay consistent late in matches is keeping them from making their first Sunday appearance after entering the pro division.
In the afternoon, there was a massive line outside of the Dye Booth for all of the fangs from around the world who wanted to snag some free posters and T-Shirts from Tampa Bay Damage. The star-studded team is always happy to show their fans love, and will be doing multiple signings throughout the event!
Tomorrow we’ve got a full line up of games, with Damage taking on Thunder, CEP playing Houston Heat, and Ironmen against Upton 187 cRew late in the afternoon.
