MPOC # 4

A “WOW!” for Team Duckside. The Team emerged as champions at the Fourth Leg Of Malaysia Paintball Official Circuit (MPOC) 2013.  We are happy that our hard work and determination have paid off!

With this win, we succeeded in rank 1st in the overall line up.  However, without the side line support from our sponsors – DYE Precision and 89 Arena Paintball, and the amazing participating teams, we would not be where we are now.

With this humble thought, we would like to share our happiness and this champion trophy with all our beloved supporters out there. Despite the streaking heat and the heavy haze, they gave us unconditional help and guidance during the games.

Till we all meet again soon, Next game… Be Safe, Play Safe. Take care. CHEERS!

Epic Win for STK at the Malaysian Open – MPOC – PALs Malaysia

Malaysian Open, MPOC, PALs Malaysia

Three tournaments, one event, $30,000 cash pay out.  MPOC Pals was a pretty sweet deal, with Division 1 through Division 4 all with the chance to win stacks of cold hard cash.

For me, the trip started as many do… waking up early to make it to the airport then sort everything out at the check-in counter. By the time I arrived at the hotel to meet with everyone from STK it was about 9pm. I was tired and wanted nothing more than to go to sleep.  We didn’t play until the afternoon the following day which I was stoked to hear about.

Prelims were not easy, but it made the team fight and work together to make the cut.  We ended up 3-1-1 and would play Datis in the Quarterfinals. Datis was the only loss we had in the prelims, and they beat us 4-0. Its was a real eye-opener for us because before that game we had not been shut down so much. Most of the points were over in 30 seconds, a breakout then game over we lose the point.  This time around we wanted some revenge. It was a really close match and STK ended up with the win and moving on to play Nemesis.

Nemesis is another team we played in the finals and ended in a tie game. All of the guys on Nemesis are great players whom I have known for years… but I wanted nothing more than to smash them in to the ground and move onto the finals.  That is exactly what happened and we ended up winning 4-0 to advance to the finals.

Now it was just time to wait and watch who we would play in the finals, either Xtioneer or Infernal. I was really hoping it was going to be Infernal because they are another Dye team and also deep down I wanted a rematch from the final we played against them at World Cup Asia that ended up with them winning.  Xtioneer would prove to be too much for Infernal on this day, however.  Infernal vs. STK for the final match of the event.

I have been playing with STK for the last three PALs events and we have come close to winning but have never been able to get there. We’ve been close, but close doesn’t mean anything except that you played good but you’re still a loser.  Looking into the eyes of everyone on the team, I knew that my boys were ready and wanted the win. No one looked scared or unsure if they could win this thing. Our confidence was high, and going into the finals off a 4-0 victory was gave us some momentum.

The finals started out in a close first point which STK won, but after that it was back and forth. It was a super close game, with a tie score of 3-3 with just 22 seconds of game time left. Being a team full of fighters intead of playing the 22 seconds smart to go into overtime, we wanted to win it and seal the teams fate and first major win. We had a quick little game plan talk and we went for the win. We went out and scored a point in the last 22 second winning the match 4-3 and the event!!

I will be getting myself ready for the next event, and I know that every person on STK will be also. That win has come and gone, but in the end it’s all about how good you are on that one given day in paintball… the past is just the past.

I would like to thank Dye for giving me the chance to do what I do, STK for being the team they are, Brad and Chirstine for everything who are just as if not more important than any player on the team, Michelle, WASP Paintball for everything they do for the team, also all of the pit crew who helped. A big thank you to Chris who helped in the pits and also did a great job picking up our pods from the field and also Jas for being there to help and also put up with TDD (Dan Woods).

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.

Grammaton Clerics secure 2012 MPOC D2 Championship

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

Ask any competitive paintball team what they want at the end of a season and their answer will always be this: “A Series Championship”.

by: The Grammaton Clerics

“Great news for the Clerics as this year we got the title handed to us on a silver platter… just by registering!  For some odd reason, our closest competitor Team Votolocos did not register for the event, which made us the champs. Of course that’s good, but being Grammaton Clerics, we did feel a wee bit dissappointed. We want the title, but we also like the challenge that normally comes with it.

As consolation for being guaranteed a series championship, we played even harder to get the gold at that event, which was held again at Xtion Paintball Park in Bukit Jalil.

After a difficult semi-finals match, we had made it to the finals and had a chance to take home not one, but two 1st place honors at this series finale.  The finals were long points. Both teams played cautiously and maintained their lanes well. We shot them off the break on a few occasions, but the mid-game-lockdown they deployed proved frustrating for our forwards. Our back line had to place accurate shots to tuck in their forwards while our snake and dorito inched to get the angles they need. We got the kills and led 2 – 1 with a bit more than a minute left of regulation time.

We were exhausted so we made one final push. As the seconds passed we were getting careless moving up and crossing shots.  Lost Boys tried to push snake side and reach the 50s, but our backs held their lanes and crossed it up to put their pace to a stop. As our friends and crew counted down the seconds, Lost Boys could not break our defense and at the horn the game was over. We got the championship trophy and also the gold medal to match.

It has been a long and hard season. We came in to the division as rookies and trained very hard every weekend to improve every aspect of our game. There were no shortcuts or discounts for our success and without the help of family, friends and sponsors we would not have made it this far, this quick. Coming to the end of the third year as a team we thank everyone who parted advice, words of wisdom and contributed directly or indirectly to the team. Our success is as much as yours as it is ours, and we really appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts.

What’s next? There is WCA and that D2 PALS title we have been had our eyes on. For now… we will see you in Langkawi World Cup Asia! Stop by and say hello. We won’t bite… promise.”
