Pete “Mr. U” Utschig Reports from Navikill in Ecuador

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Pete “Mr. U” Utschig of the Tactical Ironmen reports from his latest tactical adventure in Ecuador -

“The last event of this year for the Tactical Ironmen had the guys split between Wayne’s World Game in Florida where the Ironmen were led by Mike Paxson and Billy Wing, and the event I went too in Guayaquil Ecuador. Although I heard amazing things about the Wayne’s World  Game I am really happy I made the trip to Ecuador.

The Tactical Event I played was called Navikill which in Spanish means the Christmas Kill, very fitting. The event was organized by Ecuador’s  top ranked tactical team Waiakill, and  the team puts on an amazing event . The game pitted three teams of 35 players each in a virtual tug of war. The field was 500 yards long with two rows of two-story cement houses full of alleys, windows and corridors.

It was a tactical paintball player’s dream come true, especially one armed with a DYE DAM. There were kills to be had around every corner. Two teams competed at a time while the third team judged. The team’s mission was to acquire a key from the other team’s safe zone and then unlock a chained up hostage located in a maze in the center of the field. Both teams had the same assignments, which meant the gunfights in the center of the field were intense.

Paint was raining from every window above and below, nowhere was safe. Games were 30 minutes long and re-generation was allowed in the first 15 , which meant the first 15 minutes were full blown slugfest and the last 15 a tactical a chess match. There was no leaving the field to reload or air up. This left me at a huge advantage with a couple of loaded first strike clips in my harness. I was eliminating players at will with my DAM while they were struggling, down to my last rounds.

During lunch, with the help of Luis from DYE Ecuador and Team Evolution, and Gazzu also from DYE Ecuador and Team Zurikatas, we organized a 2 vs. 2 Tactical DAM tournament and Sniper competition. All the players involved were blown away by the DAMs accuracy, versatility, and fire power. I hope that we are able to adopt this set up at some tactical events next year. It was some of the most fun paintball I have ever played. Make sure you check back for all the POV video footage coming soon!”

Evolution wins D2 & D3 EPPL Series Titles

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

The last event of the EPPL (Ecuadorian Professional Paintball League) was held in Quito, Ecuador, and with a massive turnout of over 40 teams spread across four divisions, this was the event to be at in South America.

Our flagship team in Ecuador, Team Evolution, showed up ready to play as they breezed their way to the finals and found themselves matched up against a team they smashed in the prelims, Team Zurikatas.  In a really exciting finals match, Evolution would fall to Zurikatas 1-2, but still left victorious as the D2 Series Champions.  Evolution 2 also brought home some gold as the D3 Series Champs.

Congrats!

Aside from all of the competition,the DYE booth at the event was amazing, the biggest ever made in South America.  Tech service was on point, the staff service was excellent for our customers, and we had a full display of the entire 2013 product line. Dye SA created a stage so people could take pictures with the Dye Pros and win one of many prizes that were given out to the crowd.
A message from Juan Daniel Nebel Romero:
“Dye and Proto paint was sold at the event, probably the best paint I have shot in my life, it was a complete succes between the teams.  Our season is not over yet, we have one last event this weekend called “The Navikill”, a tactical event where we will be presenting the DAM to all of the players.  We are expecting Mr. U to come later this week, so look out for news and pictures of this event!
Thanks to DYE for their support this year on another succesfull season for Evolution, cant wait for next year!”
