Dynamix back on the podium!

Monday, April 14th, 2014

The boys from South Africa are back on the podium! After a dominating season in 2013, winning both the SARPL series and World Cup Asia, the team showed that they’re not slowing down and are as focused as ever. Proving so by winning the annual Sweetspot event hosted by

Blades and Triggers. Craig Marley from Dynamix gave us a rundown of how the event went for them:

Sweetspot 2014 was hosted at the Blades and Triggers paintball range in Boksburg.  It ran both 3 man and 5 man formats with two divisions for each, open and elite.  Dynamix entered in the elite division in both formats despite normally sticking to the 5-man format.

The 3 man was a lot of fun, the guys just got to go out and enjoy a day of “not so” serious paintball.  At the end of the day the two DNX teams entered placed 1st and 3rd. The 3-man was well run and we enjoyed the opportunity to play on Blades and Triggers turf field.

Sunday brought about the 5 man elite and the turnout didn’t disappoint, with 7 teams showing up to play.  The field layout was a tricky one to gauge but despite dropping two games in the prelim rounds, coming into the knockout rounds the team had warmed up to the challenge.  In the finals we came up against fellow BNT team Apocalypse (who also hadn’t dropped a game throughout the day). DNX managed to win the final 1-0, leaving Blades and Triggers with 3 teams on the podium.

A huge thanks to Blades and Triggers for the great prizes that they sponsored and the fantastic event they hosted. Thank you to Dye for the great gear we have the privilege of wearing. DM14 for the win!

Dynamix take 1st at World Cup Asia in Langkawi!!!

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

Dynamix have had a very successful year with a dominant performance in the SARPL series in South Africa. However, being the
competitive team that they are, they weren’t satisfied with success in their local series and decided to head over to Malaysia for
the World Cup Asia event so they could test their metal against the best teams in Asia. This was their first event in Asia and the
team went over focused and well prepared, they ended up winning the event!! Craig Marley from Dynamix gave us this report:

After a tiring 27 hours of travel from South Africa,
the team finally landed in the beautiful Langkawi
We were greeted by the pleasant and friendly Dye staff,
Devon and Ellen who handed over to us 2 Big Boxes of
Dye goodies with one of them being the all new powerful
DM14 along with the new Formula 1 Purple C14 gear – Purple Power! :)

Our first day we dominated all our prelim games.
We rocked with the new DM14′s straight out the box.
The feel of the gun was very different to the DM13
giving us more gun control and accuracy when laning.
Due to the new positioning of the fore grip and no
Microcline, making it easier to swop hands.
The gun is very smooth and gave us good air efficiency.

In the semi’s we played against Lost Boys, it was a tough
game but we ended up beating them 3-2 with one second left on the clock.
Our next game against Datis we beat 4-1. Which took us to the finals facing Rascals.

What a fight! penalties were flying everywhere. We were down 3-1,
only to dig deep and never give up! We won 4-3!!

 

Thanks to everyone that helped and to all our friends, family
and supporters sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for the scores

Much love

Very importantly, Thanks to Dye for the great gear and the best gun ever – DM14!!
And thanks to South Africa Blades n Triggers and Haviannas.
Also thx to STK for all there help, was also good to see all the Dye teams working together,
One big happy family ;)

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!”
