nVs wins another intense fight!

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Round 2 of the Australian Super 7s series was held in May at Action Paintball. 10 teams were all vying for the top spot in the Professional Division. We knew that if we didn’t bring our A game we were going to be in for a tough weekend of paintball.

We started on the Friday with a walk of the field. After coming up with a couple of game plans that we were happy with, we called it a day and went back to make sure all our gear was prepped and ready for the weekend.

Saturday morning rolled around and we were the first game of the day. We were up against SYDNEY EXPLICIT. Explicit had brought over Devon Stutz from Dye to play with them. We started off well coming away with a 3-2 win. Our next few games were against NZ Clown Monkeys, Shenanigans and East Side Raw, all of which we also took the win. Our last game of the day was against STK. This was going to be our hardest game of day 1 but also a good test to see if all of our training after the first round had paid off. It was a fast-paced game with both teams taking quick points and throwing everything at each other. At the end of time we came away with the win at 3-2.

On Sunday we had four games to play before finals. We were up against Apparition, Uprising, Relentless and Sydney SWAT. Having taken only wins up to our SWAT game, we knew we would be playing off for 1st or 2nd in the Finals. SWAT had brought over Blake Yarber from San Diego Dynasty, and this game was to be our hardest game for day 2 before Finals. It was also going to decide whom we would play off in the final as STK and SWAT had both suffered losses while we remained undefeated. Given our on-field relationship with SWAT, this was going to be the grudge match of the weekend, especially for SWAT as they tried to keep their finals hopes alive. After some long drawn out points it ended in a 2-all draw. This meant we would be facing STK in the final for 1st or 2nd.

The Final.

What a game this was. The end score absolutely does not reflect how tough the match actually was. Both teams came out swinging from the blocks. We were able to get an early 2 point lead. We swapped ends where STK were able to take the next point – they weren’t going down without a fight. After quickly regrouping we were able to take the next 2 points and come away with the 4-1 win!

In closing, we would like to thank everyone who came down and supported us in the pits or just by cheering for us over the weekend. It really helps us a lot. A big shout out goes to our sponsors Devon Stutz, Dye Precision and Paintball Addiction. Our gear performed flawlessly all weekend and without you guys none of this would be possible.

Round 3 will be held in August and we’re aiming to keep up the good work and bring home another win.

Dye Teams Dominate EPPL Salinas Open – Evolution Wins

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

The first event of the Ecuadorian Professional Paintball League, right on the beach in Salinas City, was dominated by the DYE family of teams.

 

D2

1st Evolution (DYE Team)

2nd Zurikatas (DYE Team)

D3

1st Zurisilver (DYE Team)

2nd Evolution Kids (DYE Team)

 

Here’s a report from the event written by DYE’s own Juan Daniel Nebel Romero:

“Our first two games on Friday were against Evolution Jr who we beat 4-0, then we faced Manta Marines who we managed to beat 4-2. On Saturday we played against Monosalvaje and beated them 4-0 and finally against Kboom from Venezuela and also beat them 4-2.

We made it to Sunday, but we soon discovered that we would be playing against the other DYE Team from Ecuador in the finals, Zurikatas from Quito. After an incredible game, we beated them 4-1 and got the first win of the year.

We would like to thank DYE for the support at the event. The DYE Ecuador booth was amazing and the tech service was on point. Also thanks to DYE for the amazing paint, it was by far the best paint there and between that and the DM13, we were making G’s off the break in high numbers.

To keep updated about us just follow us on Facebook.com/EvolutionPBT, on Twitter @Evolution_PBT and on Instagram @evolutionpbt

See you guys in the next event the Cuenca Open in July!”

PSP Announces Major League Change: Champions & Challengers Pro Divisions for 2013

Monday, January 28th, 2013

We are about to enter a new era of professional paintball…  Are you ready?  Here’s the latest from the PSP regarding their new Pro Divisions – Champions & Challengers:

[via PSPevents.com]  - “The level of talent in the PSP Professional Division is undisputedly the fiercest in the world.  Teams from all divisions train week in and out to ultimately one day become a Professional team in the PSP.  Actually making the advancement into Pro however, has historically been too large of a move for most teams to make. 

The PSP would like to change this by putting a system into place for fresh teams to move into an even stronger Pro League.  

The PSP Professional teams will compete against each other in the 2013 PSP Dallas Open.  The top 10 teams from that event will move on to PSP’s Event #2 and play in the newly established Champions Division.  They will perform on the main field for all the glory in front of thousands of fans watching from the PaintballAccess.com webcast and the PSP grandstands.

The other Pro teams from the Dallas Open will be enlisted in a new division known as the Challengers Division.  They will be joining other teams to be named at a later date.  The group of teams in the Challengers Divisions will use the same format and rules, but play on a secondary Professional field during the prelims and will play their final match on the main field for all their fans to watch.  Starting after Event #2, the top two teams from the Challengers Division in each event will move up and compete in the PSP Champions Division for the following event.  They will be replacing the bottom 2 finishers from the previous event’s Champions Division, who will instead perform in the Challengers Division. 

This system of constant circulation will continue event by event for seasons to come.  It is now more important than ever for teams to give their all in each match – as they no longer have just one goal of winning the event – but must perform at their top in every game to make sure they do not suffer the consequence of being knocked out of the Champions Division.  Likewise, the Challengers Division teams at each event have the option to perform and move up for the following event. 

The fight begins March 14, 2013 at the PSP Dallas Open.  Team Registration for all divisions opens soon at PSPevents.com.”
