Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

The CXBL is keeping traditional X-Ball alive up in Canada, and the competition is no joke, with teams like Heat and VICIOUS all competing at 15bps.

Our Dye Sponsored team, Windsor Lockdown, put together one hell of a roster for this event, including Marcello Margott, Jason Edwards, Alex Goldman, Chad Busier, and Keith Brown, on top of a group of Canadian All-Stars who lived up to their potential at event #1, The Border Battle.

Here’s what Trevor van Dorsser of Lockdown had to say:

“Our Lockdown Guys without (Marcello, Mouse, Jason Edwards and Keith Brown) beat Heat at event #1.  The Pro’s flights were all screwed up and did not arrive until after the Match.  Lockdown surprised everyone by winning against Heat with only 6 guys!

Then the pro’s arrived, and we went 3-0 for the weekend and are in first place in the league. The DYE CG paint was the talk of the event and absolutely helped us take it to some of the best players in the world at the CXBL.”

An Almost Perfect Weekend – Event Report by Mad Bunnies from MY-NPL Event 3

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Team Mad Bunnies Event Report

My-NPL 2013 Event 3

An Almost Perfect Weekend”

“The team entered the event full of confidence after looking good in training that started 3 weeks before the event. A few game plans were formulated with involved some of the most ambitious counter moves not tried before over the last 2 events. The mood was good and the feeling was positive, suffice to say Team Mad Bunnies was in good shape to bring home the gold.

The team drew what many observers considered to be the ‘Group of Death’ featuring My-NPL stalwarts Team CMX Hamoon & Team Yin Yang, Event 1 finalists Team Outlaws Singapore and Event 2 finalists Team Mad Storm.

The team played 5 preliminary games and the results are as follows:

PRELIMINARY GAMES (BRACKET D)

TEAM NAME SETS WON SETS LOST ACCUMULATED POINTS ACCMUMULATED WIN/LOSS

Yin Yang 2 0 2 +2

El Mohad 2 0 4 +4

Mad Storm 2 0 6 +6

Tora Tora 2 0 8 +8

CMX Hamoon 2 0 10 +10

Finishing as champions of Bracket D booked us a spot in the automatic Quarter Finals slot where we were pitted against Team Outlaws from Singapore, a team we met in the Event 1 finals & event 2 QF. Winning this round will give us an opportunity to eliminate our nearest competitor in the D3 overall ranking, Team Bunga Tanjung

The elimination round results are as follows:

QUARTER FINALS 

TEAM NAME SETS WON SETS LOST ACCUMULATED POINTS ACCMUMULATED WIN/LOSS

Outlaws 2 0 2 +2

SEMI FINALS 

TEAM NAME SETS WON SETS LOST ACCUMULATED POINTS ACCMUMULATED WIN/LOSS

Bunga Tanjung 2 0 2 +2

 

With a perfect record from Saturday, the team was clear favourites to win the finals when it was announced that we will be meeting Team One-Eye Bandits, a team that has struggled to make it past the elimination rounds in previous events. But like any finals competition, underestimating the opponents will bring about dire effects as we have learned. After having taken the 1st set, the team lost focus and due to some coaching error, lost the 2nd set by a razor thin margin. With 59 seconds of regulation game time left, the plan was to hold the game and start over again in Overtime. It was the longest 59 seconds of our lives as Team One-Eye Bandits made their intentions clear to finish the game off in regulation time by moving up the flanks in lightning speed. Only by consistent sharp zoning and cross-field shooting that we managed to hold the marauding forward players of the opponents.

The Overtime was a different proposition altogether. With renewed determination and hunger (and greed) to succeed, we were able to take advantage of precise off-the-break laning when we took one of the opponent’s front players early on and pinning the rest of them in their back bunkers. Our front players were able to go to town and finishing up what was left of the opposition.

FINALS

TEAM NAME SET WON SET LOST OVERTIME WIN/LOSS

One-Eye Bandit 1 1 W +1

Overall, it was a great weekend where we saw great improvements in so many different aspects of the team game. The results speak for itself, finishing top of an incredibly challenging bracket speaks volumes of the improvements the team has achieved since moving up from D4 earlier this year.

Coming into this event the team suffered near catastrophic equipment failure and we were lucky the DYE tech was on hand to keep our gear in tip-top and competitive condition. A special shout-out is due to Mr. Weili Wu for such a great job that he did with the markers. Our appreciation also goes to DYE for making such cool looking gear. We were proud to don the C13 jerseys & pants for the first time this leg and they were marvelous all weekend!!

We’ve opened up a 20-something point lead in the overall ranking race and we look forward to playing again in Malacca in October. With fast greens and great venue, it promises to be a finale to be remembered. We hope that we will stand victorious at the end of it. Catch us in Malacca, the historic city in October.”

TonTon Win Back-to-Back Millennium Series Events

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

TonTon are back on top.

After a win at the 2013 European Masters Millennium Series event TonTon are currently the #1 ranked professional paintball team in Europe, as well as an elite member of the PSP Champions Division.  With five more PSP/Millennium tournaments left to go in the 2013 season,  how great of a year can the TonTon have?  For this team… the sky is the limit.

Here are some words from Loic Voulot of TonTon after their win at Millennium Series Event #2 – The European Masters in Bitburg, Germany:

“After winning the first Millenium event in Frejus, getting qualified for the Champions Division at PSP Dallas, kept our spot at MAO, we have won again last weekend at the second Millenium event in Germany!

Winning 2 events in a raw is never easy, especially this season. The Millenium Series level has been increased by three US teams, the two Russians teams are strong as usual, and none of the 16 CPL teams are easy to play.

During this german event, as at the first one in France, we had to beat all three of those PSP teams to win the tournament.

The first day of the event was kind of strange for us. Pascal Hausser (our team coach) and Fabrice Colombo (our team captain) were not there.  Their flight was delayed but we managed to play strong paintball against Outrage, then Heat, finishing the day with a 2-0.

Playing sunday is always a good reward, but it can be a disappointed day too if you don’t do the job or play well.

In the quarter finals we played against Infamous. We lost the first nine minute point which had Infamous leading 0-1, but then we scored one point, then an other, and won this game 4-1.

Our semi final game was against Impact, a close game where we managed to keep control on the canadian team to go to the final 4-3.

After three days of the tournament, we played against Heat for the second time.  Heat was leading 4-2 at 1 min 17 before the end of the game, forcing us to score 2 quick points to equalize then a third 17 second point to win this final. We did it, final score 5-4.  To score 3 points in a min to Heat prove that the team is able to play on different rhythms, slow or fast regarding what is needed.

The CG paint, shot by the DM13 was absolutely perfect, brittle and accurate, for sure a BIG part of this win.

What a great 2013 season start for the team! If we want to be considerate as a world class team, we need to confirm those good results in Chicago during the next PSP event. This is why we’ll practice hard for the next four weeks.

Thanks to all the people rooting for us.
