Speed Aisawan, from Thailand, claimed the 1st runner up title in the Malaysian National Paintball League’s (MY-NPL) first event of 2014. The two day battle took place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on the second week of February. There were altogether 14 teams from division 2 and we were faced with 4 teams in the first round. There were some good and bad games but we managed to go through to the quarter final round with the 2nd ranked from our group with 2 games won and 2 games drawn.
The second day started off with the 2nd round of the event, meeting with Shootin Rage team where we won the game by 2-1. Then we were now in for the semi final round where we met with team Mad Bunnies. It was a very tiring but yet exciting game. The Mad Bunnies started off beating us by 2-1 and with little time we were able to pull it back to 2-2. With 11 seconds left on the clock, last game must be played to mark the team for the final round. Due to the lack of time the 6th game of the match took place and with all the strength left in us, we won the game. The final round awaits….
The final round was Speed Aisawan vs. Throne and the first game was won by us 1-0 but after the first point won, game changed. We were defeated with the 2 games followed and called 1st runner up of MY-NPL event 1. This loss has given us great experience which will surely give us more devotion to our practice for the upcoming events of the year.
