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.
