The second stage of the Cup of Russia in the SFD and the NCFD in Rostov-on-Don – by Team B.O.L.T.

“At the entrance to the venue of the tournament, we felt the excitement.

Already at the entrance to the Rostov city I felt the energy. In the first stage in Pyatigorsk we offensively lost one game and ended up third. But we knew that, thanks to persistent trainings, we are in great shape and can show a much better game and avoid repeating mistakes.

In our division we were first to play, and unfortunately, did not have time to explore the field. The first game showed that knowledge of the area gives a great advantage. Each point for us ended up with a low wing found himself naked, and we could not turn the game around.

In the break between the first and the second game was a technical pause when we have the opportunity to disassemble the playground. After that, things went smoothly.

The second game, B.O.L.T. vs Absinthe, ended 3-0 in our favor.

After winning the second game, and having regained confidence, we began to experiment. We changed the flanks, attacked aggressively, played through the center and eventually advanced to the semifinals with a first place in the group.  In the semifinals, we met with the team which in the previous step for us was fatal. Banda team was one of the most experienced teams in this stage. But we do know that our goal is victory, and in the end, showing the aggressive play were able to reach the final. 3:1 The gang was moving on.

In the final, we met with a young team of Krasnodar – Stalker. The guys fought with dignity, but we were better prepared. 2:1 and the Goblet of this step we have taken to Krasnodar.”

With this victory, we came in first place overall in its division.

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!

Bravo Company wins the 4th Event of the GBS held in South Africa

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Team Bravo Company from South Africa recently won the 4th event of the Gauteng Bushball Series held at Paintball City in South Africa. Len Nery from Bravo

Company gave us a report of the event.

“The tournament attracted 12 teams comprising of seven playing members with two reserve players and was run using a round robin into single elimination format.

Thanks to the accuracy of our DYE Assault Matrix (DAM) markers, we didn’t lose a single game throughout the day and we rounded it off with a resounding 7 – 0

victory over our closest rivals in the finals equating to an emphatic overall win!

During the prize giving ceremony it was announced that Bravo Company broke two field records and won the prize for the two fastest games of the day by eliminating all seven of the opposing team in a time of 1 minute 40 seconds on the Village Field and 2 minutes 20 seconds on the Castle Field.

Paintball City Germiston and its staff provided the perfect platform for another outstanding tournament at a world class venue and it seems fitting that Bravo Company reached an important milestone at this event by coming the first team to win every tournament entered during 2013 in addition to securing first place overall in two league events (the Gauteng Bushball Series and the Tactical Paintball Series) within the first half of the year.

The enormous growth of this sport has seen more and more tournaments being held to cater for all the tactical bush teams and this has translated into two recognized series events each attracting up to 16 teams per event. In addition, there will be a South African Cup final for all qualifying teams to determine the best Tactical Bushball team in South Africa. The event will be held during the first week of December 2013 at Gariep Dam situated in the centre of South Africa.

Using our Dye Assault Matix markers, Bravo company aim to step onto the top step of that podium!”

Poison Ivy – The Best Female Paintball Team in the World

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

European Masters 2013

Poison Ivy is having a phenomenal season in the Millennium Series, one of the most competitive series in the world..  Coming off a 2nd place podium appearance at the most recent event, Bitburg, the best female paintball team in the world reflects on being so close to gold… they could taste it.  In the mean time, beer will do.

Only a month after the Mediterranean Cup we were eager and ready for the next Millennium in Bitburg, Germany. After a 6th place we felt that we had proven to ourselves that we can reach our goal continuing the hard work and dedication within the team. So that’s exactly what we continued doing.

In addition to paintball most of the girls on the team are students, and May is the busiest month with final exams coming up. However, that doesn’t stop us. In preparing for the European Masters in Bitburg we got in several reball practices, and one NPL event (Norwegian Paintball League) and one outdoor paintball practice, so we felt well prepared.

We all agreed that the nations cup was going to be mostly for fun, and that our focus should stay with our team (Poison Ivy) and our common goal to reach the top.

Finally we arrived in Germany with high confidence that this is our tournament.

Our first meeting with Germany was the bad weather and the rain pouring down; it was raining so bad that we had difficulty seeing the road in front of us. But when we arrived in Bitburg, the sun came out as ordered. Thursday consisted of registration, scheduling, field-walk, dinner, and making game plans.

Friday: The first thing we had to do this morning was to get in the car and pick up our last player Benedicte at the airport. She had her final exam on Thursday, but that did not prevent her from attending the tournament anyway. The pickup went smooth and of to the field we went.

First game was at 2:10 pm against Scalp ME Saulx les Chartreux 3, and in good Poison Ivy tradition we lost 0-3..which was pretty annoying. Next up was at 3:30 pm against another all-female team, Paris Camp Lady Carnage, we won that game 4-0 and felt that we were back on track. The day as Poison Ivy finished with one win and one lose. The five norwegian girls on the team played three more games that day as the Norwegian national team. They finished up pretty late, so all we had time for was a “quick” dinner and then straight to bed.

Saturday: One more game in the preliminaries at 10 am against Nancy Armada. We won 4-1 which placed us as #1 in our group, and moved us on to the important Sunday club.

The Norwegian national team also played two more games this day, and ended up winning the whole thing, and became European Champions 2013! The girls were on fire

Sunday club: Once again we managed the first step in to the tournament, now the real fun was about to start. First up this rain full day was the last-16 game against Orphans Dolgoprudny. Won 4-2 and made it to the quarter finals. By winning this game we had to play the next game against our friends and fellow Norwegians; Rebels Borgerskogen, who we consider to be a really good team. We knew that this game was not going to be easy, and only one of us could make it to the semi-finals.. We surprised ourselves (and others..) by winning convincingly 3-1. And for the first time in the history of Poison Ivy we had actually made it past the evil quarter finals at the Millennium and moved on to the semi finals!!! In the semi’s we met Lucky 15s Staffordshire, which proved to be a difficult match where we went on to overtime.. It ended with another win for us, 3-2. This meant FINALS!

The final we lost against a really good team Durham DV8 0-4. It was no doubt who deserved that first place. They proved better than us. Congratulations to Durham DV8 for taking 1st place! You guys deserved it!

When looking back at the tournament and our performance we are SO proud of how far we have come this year. Nothing is better than getting results when you work as hard as we have done this year. Because of the 6th place in France and now the 2nd place in Bitburg we are currently ranked 2nd in the overall ranking of 2013 at the Millennium :)

Second place is good, but for us nothing is good enough before we reach all the way to the top. So London watch out! Poison Ivy is hungry for revenge ;-)

A lot of people to thank, so here we go:

Our amazing sponsors!! DYE paintball for providing us with amazing gear, including Dye Reflex Markers AND Dye DM13′s, i4 Goggle Systems, Dye ROTOR Loaders and the awesome Dye CG paint.
