WOLF and AZTEK in Action at Fight for Asylum 4

Monday, April 20th, 2015

Over the weekend, Dye Tactical A-team was teaming up at PRZ Paintball, in Picton Ontario Canada, for the annual Fight For Asylum Big Game!

A record attendance took part of this 2-day event… with over 800 players joining or playing against Wolf & Aztek, who were equipped with nothing but the best in tactical paintball gear (Dye DAM and Box Rotor).

Both teams pushed hard all weekend to gain ground and points through a series of flags and missions.  Each day ended with a final battle format similar to what we experience at CPX Living Legends each year… making this event one of the most exciting game at PRZ to date!

If you haven’t experienced PRZ… it is simply one of the best paintball field in the world!  Imagine yourself playing at an authentic military asylum, with over 50 acres of land and 100,000 square footage of indoor play (including 3 massive buildings with up to 3-levels with staircases, hallways, a warehouse, a loading dock, boiler room, gym and industrial kitchen)… allowing for a multitude of tactical play, ambushes and ideal sniper locations.

Make sure to join Wolf and/or Aztek at a field near you as these two Dye Tactical soldiers have a busy and exciting  schedule of events in 2015.

Armageddon IV New Zealand’s Epic Paintball Event 2015

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

And that wraps up another epic Armageddon weekend!

Thanks to everyone who made it to the 4th annual Armageddon Paintball Event.

This 2 day event has grown each year and now with an entirely different venue and now running under the Auckland Paintball Club umbrella, its not slowing down a bit.

Bjorn form the Timberwolves handed over control over the event last year when he decided to move into other directions for paintball events. This was well received as rather that a single person organizing an entire weekend event, the work could be spread out within the APC comity. This meant we could put more into the event and do so easier and better than ever before.
A new venue was also opted to make for better gameplay, not that Widow Woods isnt an amazing field, its just that SAS Adventures is not as physically punishing and gave us more options for the game. Unfortunately on site camping was not an option with this new venue, but the incredible scenarios played made up for this. Plus Auckland is easy for accommodation so we were happy to change this from previous years.

Lets Play…

Day 1 was organized by Ollie and of course lived up to his reputation of advanced gadgetry and involving objectives. From previous years, we have learnt that simple is best when it comes to large scale games. Complicated scenarios are great, but with 100+ players, anything can happen. This years objectives were simple, 3 teams, each with 2 objectives and a base to defend. Destroy the other bases (signaled by Ollie’s automated electronic pyrotechnics) and capture electronically timed flag poles. Advanced yet simple. Just perfect.
Players moved around the field finding loot for extra points and had to avoid the tank with the unstoppable 50cal paintball gun mounted on top. Smoke and flares made for awesome atmosphere and the sportsmanship was tops with no complaints and all round high energy fun.

Day 2 was completely different and run by Tony, the owner of SAS Adventures. This guy knows his field better than anyone so its no surprise that he can make it work better than anyone else.
The scenario was Saving Private Ryan, where rather than a free roaming, objective based scenario, the players were lead through a linear push-back style attack and defend battle that spanned multiple ‘zones’. The background atmosphere was set with fireworks and special effects that added another level to the game. This was only topped by Tony’s awesome nerf rocket cannon, too much fun. This scenario worked well as the flow of fighting is controlled by the 2 teams leaders (NPC’s). They could control how fast the attacking force broke through the defenders and vise versa. This was the perfect way to play day 2 as it meant everyone got to shoot loads of paint, get heaps of kills and have tons of fun. A perfect way to wrap up the weekend.

Cats and Dogs?

A bit of bad luck with the weather, with all the planning in the world, there’s not much anyone can do about that. It was actually fine throughout most of the gameplay, in fact there was some really hot sunny patches. But unfortunately there were some mean downpoors in the morning on both days, which put a lot off people coming along a getting a day pass. In the end those people missed out big time, since when did a little rain stop WAR!

All the Ammo you can carry!

Well this is a tricky job for any paintball supplier. We have learnt from past events, it is impossible to satisfy every player at games like these when it comes to paintball quality. With mechanical, electros mag fed, pumps, pistols, there is no perfect ball that will shoot well in every marker. This year paint was supplied by Outpost 43 and Paintball Shop, meaning that each supplier could provide 2 grades of paint each so that everyone could find a ball that suited their gun. The paint was sold with ‘paint tokens’ where each player got 4 tokens with their entry. 1 token could be exchanged for 1 bag of 500 balls of their choice. This at first was a little confusing but after explaining to people that if they purchased a paint that simply did not like their gun, they could try a different ball next rather than commiting to an entire box. Once players got the idea, this system worked really well. This token system also meant that players could get more paint on the field, mid game without carrying cash. Brilliant!

Fresh Air

Auckland Paintball Club’s newly implemented HPA fill system worked perfectly. The new Nuvair fill stations were great and players could get a good 4500psi fill all day. This is one of the APC’s first major purchases and it show how well the club is growing.

Nom Nom Nom

Lunch is provided! This simple little extra is one of the things that helped form the Auckland Paintball Club in its current state. At every game the APC makes sure everyone gets some fuel and refreshments to keep you soldiering on. This is always included in the field fee. Armageddon was no different. It was a mission making all those burgers but totally worth it in the end, everyone loved the feed!

OP43 on Location

Of course Outpost 43 was setup with a pop-up shop fully stocked with all your paintball gear requirements. Thanks to everyone who swung by the shop and said hi! We dont do this to simply sell gear, we do it to promote the industry of paintball and to show people how fast this sport is growing. Cheers for your support!

See you in 2016!

Each year we learn a little more about how to run events like these. Next year can only be bigger and better. See you there!

Shout out to our sponsors, without them, event like these just couldnt happen.

Dye donated some awesome prizes for deserving players!

 

Thanks to all our sponsors that helped with prizes and facilities! APC Donated 5 engraved glass beer mugs for top players.

 

A Special thanks to These guys who opened up their homes to players from all around the country.  The Design Store gave us some great vouchers, cheers!

Mayhem Big Game – The Pacific 3

Photos by: www.PaintRiot.co.uk

On the weekend of the 31st August/ 1st September, I swapped my usual commute on the London Underground (the Tube) and made my way out of town to Romford, Essex to play the Mayhem Big Game – The Pacific 3. Having played the Mayhem Big Games for over 5 years in a row, I knew it was going to be a good weekend!

The Mayhem Big Game is awesome, since it offers something for everyone from: sneaky woods ball action in the lower wood, to the sup air and western field at the top, or even if you want to just check out all the cool vehicles they have all over the site, from tanks to helicopters, to the fighter jet in the staging area!

Its great to see a game that’s grown so much over just a few years, with a lot of the major retailers in the UK attending too. DYE was offering people the opportunity to test drive the DAM in a real scenario, and see how it really holds its own. With all the available DAMs in use the whole weekend, it was clear that a lot of people seemed to be really enjoying themselves testing the marker. The feedback was great – everyone was so impressed by the DAMs versatility, accuracy and complete performance.

On the Saturday, it was great to catch up with lots of familiar faces and take the opportunity to walk around the site. In the afternoon the mini scenario game took place called the Band of Brothers, and there was plenty of sneaky action taking place in the thick woodland. I managed to hold a really strong position against a few pushes from the Japanese thanks to the Dye Cam that I was wearing head to toe.

On the Sunday, we started in the lower woodland and successfully completed almost all of our objectives in the morning. However in the afternoon, despite pushing the opposition right back into one corner of the whole site, we were unable to raise the flag come the end of the game and our win in the morning session wasn’t enough to see us through as the overall winners.

Win or lose its irrelevant, the weather was amazing and everyone left with a smile on their face. Thanks to Mayhem Paintball for another fantastic weekend, for those of you that weren’t there – I’d highly recommend it for next year when it will be held on the 30th and 31st of August in 2014. Thanks to Dye Paintball for the fantastic gear. It performed flawlessly all weekend, catch me on the following social networks and stay tuned for footage from the weekend with my DAM;

Next stop on my ‘Ready for War Tour’ will be StaarGate in just 10 days time.

Be part of the adventure!

Big Win for Dye Tactical – Wolf & Mr. U at Wasaga Beach: Alien Aggression 3

Riding to another Big Win in Wasaga

by Pete “Mr. U” Utschig

The Tactical Ironmen are 7-0 on the season.  The only bad thing about being undefeated is that at each event the pressure keeps building, it easy to get to the top but staying there is the hard part, actually not that hard when your armed with a DAM.

This weekend I joined fellow Tactical Ironman and motivational phenom The Wolf. Our mission was to lead the Human Team “the blue squad ” to victory over the Alien Invasion at Canada’s premier scenario game held at Wasaga Beach Paintball. Close to 2,000 players showed up for the one day battle.

The Wolf and I had our hands full with the deck staked against us. The alien team was ready to rumble with the Canadian powerhouse team the Norther Gunman leading the charge. Wasaga Beach is a amazing event with the staff and refs doing a superb job keeping the fields pristine and the play fair.

Points were changing hands all day with the Aliens holding a lead most of the day, but we all know that the Ironmen are not going out like that. At one point early in the day I found myself in a very precarious situation, like I usually do. I had gotten way too far up the field leading a charge and was alone against about 70 angry Canadians. As my bunker was getting pounded about as hard as my heart was beating I heard a loud thump, guessing it was the first guy coming to bunker me I spun quick only to see another DYE Camo clad blue warrior joining me in my bunker. Not only was I surprised someone else had the balls to enter the battle with unthinkable odds but I was even more surprised to learn my teammate was only 12 years old. Together with our DAM firepower we started to destroy the enemy force.

This seemed to be the theme for the day, Thomas aka the Shadow followed me through every charge, crawl, and firefight. We gave it out and without a question we got it back too. When the smoke settled and the points were tallied the Ironmen and Humans reined supreme!

The Wasaga Beach crew did a amazing job as young and old stayed for the awards ceremonies. DYE graciously donated a ton of prizes, Wolf awarded the oldest combatant at 65 a brand new pair of i4s. But the real winner of the day was Thomas the Shadow who earned his Ironmen patch in front of the cheering crowd. The Shadow is now part of the Tactical Ironmen.

I wanted to thank everyone at Wasaga Beach paintball especially Christine and Larry for putting together a great event. I can’t wait for next year!

Make sure you check out all the video footage from this amazing event. 7-0 and still undefeated I think the numbers speak for themselves if your not on the DYE Tactical side, you’re probably on the losing side. World DAMination!
