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)!

Team Dynamix – Champions of SARPL Event #2

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

Team Dynamix from South Africa recently won the SARPL event 2 in Port Elizabeth. Craig Marley gave us a rundown of the event:

“The weekend started with the alarm waking us up at 1am Saturday morning , we loaded up the cars and trailers, the road trip began. Driving a very long 12hrs we arrived in a sunny and very hot Port Elizabeth. We headed straight to the field to walk it. On arriving, the layout was a lot different to what we had trained on at our home field of Blades and Triggers in Joburg, leaving us to make up a lot of new break out plans. The field walk took us well into Saturday night so it was a long day but we felt prepared for our games.

Sunday started early with setting up tents at the field and getting all our Dye gear ready. We were a bit worried about the Dye CG Paint as it had travelled in a trailer for 12 hours in the baking sun, much to our surprise the Dye CG paint shot great throughout the whole tourney giving us no problems at all. We started bashing out games early and with our new game plans we were very strong only dropping 2 points in the pool stages.

Leading into the semi’s, we played a very strong Johannesburg team, Reapers. We took first point the way we had most of the day but they had picked up some flaws in our game plan and used it against us. After a long point they managed to shoot all of us out, taking the second point. We quickly got together and changed our plans and used completely different break outs which we had not tried. We came back using a different game putting us in the finals.

We met a team from Port Elizabeth in the finals. We started off strong but dropped the second point. We got our heads back into the game to fight back as it was a long drive back and no one wanted that drive with a second place finish. After grinding the last point we had shot out their players and hung the flag taking the WIN!

With the second RPL completed we drove 12hrs back to Johannesburg with us arriving home at 5:30am but all of us smiling and as happy. We could not have done it without the help from our sponsors DYE, Blades and Triggers, DYE CG paintballs and the Smuts family. Thanks for all the support.”
