Aisawan takes 1st at PALS Thailand!

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

We, AISAWAN Team, joined PALS THAILAND tournament 2014. We are expecting a high achievement since we got only 2nd place and 4th place in the last two times before. Those experiences pushed us to work harder, spent more time practicing and planning strategy.

Also we got 4 championships from another tournament previously, therefore it quite encouraged our teammates to do the best for PALS tournament this year.

First round, did not go well, but it wasn’t too late. We adjusted our strategy and made improvements. It was rewarded in the next round, on and on, until finally we made it. Championship was our achievement as expected for all of our hard work!

This made our 5th championship of this year. We are looking forward and won’t stop for another chance to complete for Aisawan’s legend and glory!

Thank you to ‘Dye’, for our great equipment support all along.

Wolf and Aztek take on Fight for Asylum 3!

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

This past weekend I headed to the Fight for Asylum 3 game at the World Famous PRZ Field in Ontario Canada.  This massive facility is an abandoned hospital with several buildings and outdoor battle area, and challenges even the most experienced players! This annual even brought 700 of the most intense paint ballers from all over North America and did not disappoint!  The Generals were Don Walsh of Team ODST and Josh “Orange” Saumure of Citrus Connection, both experienced leaders sent their fighters into some of the most fun they’ll ever have!  I had to crawl through windows, fight it out in stair wells, and clear room by room to find cell phones and flash drives to accomplish missions, its was such a blast I felt sorry for those who could not make it, The DYE Booth was a place to meet and greet players, and along with DYE Player Patrick AZTEK Boulanger, we had a great day of Action.  The game takes place over 2 days including a night game. Come back to http://www.dyetactical.com for updates on future games, and join me next time for the Most Intense Close Quarters Battle you can endure!   Visit PRZ PAINTBALL for field information, and go to thewolfsden on YouTube for the Action video soon!

 

Dynamix from South Africa have been an absolute freight train this year!

Friday, December 27th, 2013

Hot off their victory in Malaysia where they were crowned World Cup Asia champs, the team had a few weeks off before their final showdown at Supercup in Gariep Dam for the 2013 SARPL title. The team had won several SARPL events throughout the year but it all came down to this final event to see who took the series win. Dye sponsored athlete, Max Lundqvist was at the event for a clinic and also guested on the team. The team’s experience showed as they dominated their final games and took the series win!! Craig Marley from Dynamix was kind enough to give us his feedback from the event:

The event was held at the Gariep Dam Forever Resort. A very nice venue albeit a bit far out. By Friday evening we had a full team at the event and with our tents pitched, we looked forward to a good event.
Saturday day morning the team met up with the legendary Maximus Lundquist. Dynamix was fortunate to have him as a guest for the team and to share some of his vast experience with the guys.  Day 1 was not as smooth as we would’ve wanted but we ended 2nd overall and drew Apocalypse in Sundays Semi-final.

So after an early evening at the player’s party the team came into Sunday ready to shine. We amended our game plan and pulled out a 2:0 win on Apocalypse. This secured us a spot against team Reaper in the final who placed 1st in the prelim stage.
The final was the deciding game for supercup but also the entire series as both Dnx and Reaper came into super cup on equal points. As always the final was extremely close and at the end it came to a1:1 draw. This meant that decision went to game times. Despite a 1 minute penalty Dynamix still came out on top.

A huge thank you to all the event organisers and very importantly all our supporters. Bnt and Dye as sponsors,  we could not ask for better! Blades and triggers were out in full force to back us. Much gratitude to Maximus for all he taught us over the weekend. To Jeremy from Dye, always a pleasure having you there. Thanks Troy for the teching and support. Lastly congratulations to Dynamix South African champs for 2011, 2012 and 2013!!

The Story of Offenburg Coimin At Ya

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Who are Offenburg Coimin At Ya?

Hi, We’re a German SPL Team and also compete in the German DPL where we placed second last season we currently have nine players on the team from all over Europe, Germany and the U.S.

Our team captain is Moritz Berndtson (Germany) Moritz and his brother Dario Berndtson (Germany) both have been on Comin At Ya for a while.

The rest of the roster consists of Manuel Hess (Germany), Sebastian “Schuby” Schubert (Germany), Marvin Bunsch (Germany), Dominik “Steigi” Steigmeier (Switzerland), Pascal Haefeli (Switzerland) Manuel “Orlando” Büttgenbach (Belgium) and Daniel Park (USA).

Starting the 2013 season Comin at Ya picked up four hungry new players, some of them well known to the local and European paintball community.  The more experienced additions were Pascal Haefeli who had formerly played for another DPL Pro team and Manuel Büttgenbach who had played for a Belgium SPL team in the Millennium Series.

We also picked up LA Ironmen Daniel Park known for being a powerhouse on the snake side and he is a force to be reckoned with.

Marvin Bunsch has been team captain of the German U19 national team and was the last pickup for Comin At Ya this year. He is currently the youngest player to compete in the DPL Pro division.

What happened at the last Millennium?  

Coming into the Campaign Cup in London we had only one thing on our mind and that was winning the event. There is no magical formula to moving up to the CPL. It´s all about being consistently good in every event, every game and every point of the game It´s as simple as that!

After taking a second in Puget Sur Argens and a ninth place in Bitburg it wasn’t looking too good for us. Knowing this we practiced as hard as we could and played many points against other teams, mostly from the CPL. Most of us arrived in Basildon on Thursday and we had a practice scheduled at 5pm.

There was some confusion because of general delay and teams that just didn´t want to leave the field. The practice was rough but that usually means that our prelims will be good. It tells you where you get shot and how to tweak the game plans accordingly and you really get to know the field that much better.

Our first game on Friday was against the Dogs D Amour this was a team that we lost to in Bitburg but this time around we were confident in our abilities. It was a pretty close game that we ended up winning 4-3.

The next game was against Amsterdam Heat and we won 4-2. And this win succored us a spot in the Sunday Club.

On Saturday our last game of the preliminaries was against Brussels Graffiti with the momentum that we had we where able to beat them 4-1.

This win reassured everyone on the team that we were ready to go to the finals.

After a little rest on Saturday afternoon in the surprisingly nice weather we went to bed early to be ready for the upcoming task.  The games on Sunday went like this, We beat Paris Triade 4-3, Then beat Boost Air Rennes 4-1 we’re on a roll and feeling great. Then we came up against London Tigers… We had a battle on our hands with Tigers getting a quick lead and we ended up losing 2-4.

This lose against Tigers meant we would be competing for third and fourth place only! Being so close to making it to the finals and gathering the much-needed points and then missing it was detrimental to our morale. Everyone was tired of the hard games before and previous injuries starting aching a little bit more. But all of us have played paintball long enough to know that there is no place for that during an ongoing tournament. So we got up, re-grouped and focused on our last game, which was against fellow Dye Team Drammen Solid.

We had been helping out each other the whole weekend and watched each other’s games too. Even though they are friends of ours we still wanted to win and we all have on both teams a huge amount of competitiveness in all of us and we all want to win.

A good example of this is my teammate Sebastian ”SCHUBY” Schubert. He left everything he had on the field. If you watch our game against Solid closely you can see him throw up a couple of times. He still kept going and nothing could make him slow down not even a little bit. We won 4:0 against Solid, which put us at third place overall so all isn’t lost as we are still in the running for that CPL promotion but we will have to play better and be more consistent.

And we will just have to see how it goes in Paris. We are definitely ready to prove that we are worthy of playing in the CPL.

Give the new players of the sport some tips on how to improve their game.

There is no secret to playing Paintball in our opinion. Basically we are trying to practice against the best teams as often as possible. Not forgetting to run drills because without the basic skills there is no future for you in competitive paintball.

As a Team we try to practice against teams of equal or a higher skill set then us. This often means travelling far and maybe even flying to different countries but for us this is all part of becoming a better team and it is actually pretty fun too.

Travelling with your buddies and seeing different parts of the world makes for amazing memories. So if you are willing to take anything away from this Blog then listen up… Surround yourself with people you can benefit from and vice versa. Stick with people you really like and connect with

Yes, there might be a team that is currently better than yours or seems to offer great sponsorship but guess what, it´s not worth it if you are playing with a bunch of selfish guys that you don’t even like!

These kinds of teams won’t last long… What I mean is interpersonal relationships. In paintball with all its ups and downs you need teammates that have your back and in a moment of weakness you need to be the person that they can count on.

Try to listen to older or more experienced guys on the field and especially off it. This will help you prepare for whatever paintball and life offers you.

TonTon Win Back-to-Back Millennium Series Events

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

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.
