Team DRX Gets 2nd at MY-NPL Event #3

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Team DRX came in 2nd last weekend in the 3rd event of 2013 MY-NPL. Dropping only 2 points in the preliminary, the team emerged on top of the table to take on Team Rockstar in the semi-final.

Surviving an early scare with 2 points down in a race to 4 format, Team DRX hung on with everything they have to come out winning the game with a 3-2 scoreline. Onward to the finals….

As expected, Team DRX face off against Team Recda Waxers in a much anticipated final game of Division 1…In the end, as the dust settles, we lost to a better organised team but that’s all part and parcel of the game we love.

A big thank you to Dye and our sponsors to make this win possible and we look forward to the finale in Malacca (Oct 19-20)!

Red Sevens Claims 2013 Malaysia Paintball Official Circuit (MPOC) Champion Title

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

Fresh from last week’s Singapore Paintball Series (SPS) 2013 Leg 1 which Red Sevens clinched a 2nd Runner Up podium finish, the team continued their fighting momentum to their next event in Malaysia and won the Division 2 Champion title.

Sponsored by Dye Asia, Red Sevens Paintball Club is based in Singapore and is one of the most prolific paintball teams in Asia. Formed in 2006, Red Sevens has won several international accolades in the Asia region including the Singapore Paintball Series where the team has claimed three Overall Series Championship Titles over the last five years.

“We are always on a lookout to strengthen the team and we are glad to have recently recruited Paul Atkin from Thailand who will be joining the team for the Malaysia events this season. Paul’s vast experience playing and will definitely add firepower to the current squad”, remarked Ben Seow, who captains the team. Since formation, more than 50 players from across the region has donned and competed under the Red Sevens brand.

 

In 2013, Red Sevens renewed their sponsorship with Dye Asia and will be shooting with Dye DM13 and using the Ultra Lite apparels for all their competitions.

During the event, Red Sevens qualified as the third qualifier after the preliminary rounds with three wins and two losses. During the Semi Final game, the team was scheduled to met Team Kraken from Malaysia and went away with a close 1-0 score in a Race-3 Format game.

During the Finals, Red Sevens met Team Simpsons, whom they have lost 3-0 during the qualification. A new game plan was devised to counter the Simpsons which saw Red Sevens claiming a quick first point. In the second point, Simpsons fought back hard to level the game. With time running out in the third game, Red Sevens were close to wrapping up the Finals only to have the game buzzer running out on the team.

In the overtime game, both teams were disciplined in their shooting lanes with neither team wanting to throw in the white towel. In the end, it was the Red Sevens who won the final point with Jane Koh hitting the game buzzer.

Red Sevens would like to take this opportunity to thank Dye Asia for their staunch support and their never dying trust in the team since 2010.

Team Duckside Grabs 2nd Place at PALS Thailand – Bangkok

PALS Thailand 2013… by Daniel Thong

“Our first PALS Thailand 2013, was an amazing experience, remembered it as fun, nerve-racking and an adrenaline pumping voyage. We appreciated each other’s efforts for making the trip a successful one.

Bangkok on the first day was like a bunch of walking zombies taking the earliest Air Asia flight out and it was our excitement that overrides our heavy-eyes and this magnified in greater altitude when the plane touched the soil of Thailand. We quickly hopped on a taxi and head on the Palazzo Hotel.

The next morning, all paint ballers were arranged with busses to the PALS battle ground and the journey was only 8 to 10mins, depending on the traffic. We were quite impressed with the fields set up as they were huge, spacious and well organized.

The pre-lims were a marathon race for us. We were all exhausted under the scorching sun but managed to ranked 7th place, pushing our way into the Top 12.

Moving from Top 12 securing 2 winnings and lost 1 during round robin enabled us to Top 8 battling against team Japan (Nippon United) winning score of 2-0 stepping nearer to our goal. In the semi-finals, we played against team Australia (Rogue Assassins) and it was a close fight with the last man standing, winning critical points of 1-0 entering the final.

The final was scheduled pretty much later on the same day and the weather was unpredictable. It was sunny and hot in the morning then cloudy in the afternoon and much later, pouring rain. Still, the game moved on and we had Team Iran (Griffin) battling for the champion. There’s only one word to describe the final, “WOW!”

The moment we had been waiting for finally came through. We took a deep breath counting the last 10 seconds with our eyes fixed on our next intended position; our fingers on the trigger, ready to shoot; our tired legs gripped firmly on ground, ready to pound and run; our body, soul and mind were fixated all at once in this few minutes against Team Iran. Suddenly, marshals’ shouted game on and there we were, shooting our opponents with all our might.

Unfortunately, favor for the champion was not on our side but to Team Iran instead. In the end we were the 1st runner up. Despite the lost for the champion title, we had a good quality game and gained priceless experience. We felt great that we had gone this far in this first PALS and felt joy knowing that we had great supporters who helped us through the finals.

The day ended with heavy rain in the arena as if the sky knew we needed a bath desperately. Last bus arrived just in time to fetch us back to the hotel as we had another event to attend that evening – The player’s night…..

Yup, celebration was on, at the SLIM in RCA, one of the best chill’ax places in Bangkok. It could not be more appropriate to celebrate PALS in SLIM, together with players all over the globe. We had fun enjoying ourselves with the live band and the F&B there.

Time was clicking away nearly entering Monday and we had MC on stage preparing for the price giving. Claps and cheers lasted almost 30mins for winning teams to the podium and we heard Team Duckside being called next… we sincerely thank to DYE Paintball for their high quality equipments, 89 Arena paintball and KCHL Paintball.

So for PALS Thailand 2013 the final result as such:

1st- Griffin (Iran)
2nd- Duckside (Malaysia)
3rd- Rogue Assasins (Australia)
4th- Blueblood (Thailand)”
