Troy Nagel & Craig Marley Report from the 2013 U-Tac D-Day Scenario Event

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

South African Dye Tech, Troy Nagel, recently headed down to Cape Town for U-Tac’s annual D-Day Scenario event. The 2 day event attracts players from all over the country who come to battle it out on U-Tac’s impressive field. Troy had the Dye tech booth setup to fine tune all the Dye and Proto markers at the event and also to promote the incredible new Dye DAM marker!

Cape Town local and captain of team Dynamix, Craig Marley, was also on hand to back up Troy on the field and give players the chance to experience the DAM’s dominating performance.

Craig gave us his rundown of the event:

“Unfortunately the event was held on one of the stormiest days that Cape Town has ever seen, bringing rain, hail and freezing winds. Still the troops came out to battle with the Allies taking on the Axis, Allies started in the boats while the Axis waited behind bunkers for the doors to drop and the chaos to begin. The horn blew and it was all out WAR, wind, rain, hail and flying paint everywhere while we scrambled to find cover.

Troy and I were there to demo DYE’s new DAM, this was my first time playing with one and I was very impressed to say the least, what a great gun! It shot perfect the whole day using DYE CG paint and I loved the flexibility of being able to switch over to First Strike rounds on the fly to take those long range kills like a sniper, then flip back the switch and have the fire power to make the charge to the next bunker. I definitely felt like it gave me a huge edge on the field and most importantly I had a lot more fun!!

U-Tac is an incredible venue, one of the best scenario fields in the world and extremely well run, a big thanks to Allan and his crew for a great event. The Blades & Triggers staff were also really helpful and made sure that players had everything they needed throughout the event. Thanks to Switch MultiMedia for covering the event and taking some great pics.

Also a big thanks to Troy Nagel and DYE for the DAM and tactical gear, I can’t wait for the next scenario game!

It was an amazing event and I highly recommend that you plan to be there next year!”

North v South – The Dye Tactical Experience

Epic stories from the epic big-game, North v South UK, as told by the newest member of the Dye Tactical family William “The Prince” Clifford -

“On the weekend of May 4th and 5th, I headed over to DTE Swynnerton Military base to play in the North v South UK Big Game Festival. I have played in scenarios all over the UK, but have never made it to the UK’s largest game, I was anxious as what to expect.

Turning up at the event on Saturday afternoon when the event was in full swing was great, I have to say I was really impressed with how it was set up. All the big UK vendors you could think of were there. If you had left anything at home, you could easily pick it up.

I was introduced to all the guys from Nexus and got to meet one of my favorite players of all time: Pete ‘Mr U’ Utschig of the tactical Ironmen who had flown in from the states to be General for the Southern Army. After setting up my gear we headed down to the chronograph area and introduced a number of players to the features that the DAM had to offer, of which everyone was amazed with.

Later that afternoon we headed out into one of the more popular mini games; ‘UK versus the world’. There were easily 400 players out there on the field and running with Tactical Nexus and Mr U was an experience of a lifetime. It was great to be around a group of guys that play together on a regular basis. The communication was really good amongst us all, and we managed to push the opposing team back quickly. After playing this mini game I knew that the Sunday was going to be amazing.

It was an honour to represent DYE at such a huge event. The customer service that they offer is phenomenal; the DYE booth looked great, with all the Tactical gear on display and the techs were helping people set up their equipment until gone 8 o’clock on Saturday evening when all the other vendors had packed away.

The DYECAM really does work well on the field; I’ve found that it enables you to fit into multiple environments. It’s not like some camo that will only work well in specific environments; it fits in as an overall camo so it’s effective whatever the terrain. Running with a team of guys, who were all wearing it head to toe, really gave us that extra stealth advantage out there on the field. We not only looked the part, but we also played the part.

The Sunday was great; we managed to successfully take all of our objectives from pushing the North back to securing and holding an objective. It was only due to some unfortunate timing that we were unable to secure the compound for the final mission, as that would have won the event for the South.

Playing with a highly successful tournament team and one of the world’s most renowned scenario players, combined with the most effective camo and the deadly DAM’s really was an amazing combination. I think my personal highlight of the weekend was bunkering 10+ guys behind a building that we were trying to capture along with Shaun and Neil from London Nexus (one of the players on the receiving end was Greg Hastings), and I was lucky enough to catch it all on my camera!

I had the most fun that I’ve ever had out there on the paintball field with almost 2000 players attending, I will definitely be attending North versus South next year.

I would just like to thank DYE for giving me the opportunity to represent them and a huge thanks to all the guys at Nexus and Pete for being really welcoming.

Dye Tactical’s Pete “Mr. U” Utschig Reports from North vs South Big Game in the UK

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

We sent Pete “Mr. U” Utschig across the pond to attend the largest scenario paintball game in the UK – North v South.  He came back with a bag full of empty clips, a massive kill count, and a new respect for the British paintball scene.

By Pete “Mr. U” Utschig

“3 days, 2000 players and 7,000 miles later I’m home from another epic adventure. Last weekend I set out to meet with the DYE Europe crew and Team Tactical Nexus. I was invited to be one of the South’s Team Generals in Englands largest scenario game, “North vs South”.

The game centers around Sundays major event which pits players from Northern England against players from the South. The three day event is advertised as a paintball festival, and that’s exactly what it is. Players from all over Europe come to camp, shop, party, and of course play paintball. To start things off, we played a little CQB.  Check out this video of me changing my DAM to Recon Mode:

 

Friday players and vendors set up and were treated to 20 vrs 20 mini games. DYE Europe, myself and a couple of the Nexus players set up a DAM demo allowing all the mini game players to take the DAM out for a run. The feedback was the same as always… “This gun is insane” or “Best gun I have ever shot”.

Saturday the game format broke the competitors in two teams.  One team was made up of only English players,  the other was the rest if the world. I got to play alongside long time friend and Northern team guest general, Greg Hastings.  Lucky for Greg, he was on my team Saturday because on Sunday he felt the sting of my DAM. Unfortunately for Greg, it was all caught on my Replay camera that he gave me.

Sunday was the big battle, along side Team Tactical Nexus we brought the pain train, completing all but one of our missions. As the day fell to a close, we ultimately were short on points and the Northern Team led by Jed Green and Greg Hastings were victorious. It was another welt filled weekend but the games were intense, the people were amazing and the camera footage is epic. I wouldn’t have had it any other way!!! Bloody Knuckles, Ironmen Style.

See you guys at Living Legends with the rest of the Ironmen!!!”

-Mr. U
