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!”

Troy Nagel & Craig Marley Report from the 2013 U-Tac D-Day Scenario Event

South African Dye Tech, Troy Nagel, recently headed down to Cape Town for U-Tac’s annual D-Day Scenario event. The 2 day event attracts players from all over the country who come to battle it out on U-Tac’s impressive field. Troy had the Dye tech booth setup to fine tune all the Dye and Proto markers at the event and also to promote the incredible new Dye DAM marker!

Cape Town local and captain of team Dynamix, Craig Marley, was also on hand to back up Troy on the field and give players the chance to experience the DAM’s dominating performance.

Craig gave us his rundown of the event:

“Unfortunately the event was held on one of the stormiest days that Cape Town has ever seen, bringing rain, hail and freezing winds. Still the troops came out to battle with the Allies taking on the Axis, Allies started in the boats while the Axis waited behind bunkers for the doors to drop and the chaos to begin. The horn blew and it was all out WAR, wind, rain, hail and flying paint everywhere while we scrambled to find cover.

Troy and I were there to demo DYE’s new DAM, this was my first time playing with one and I was very impressed to say the least, what a great gun! It shot perfect the whole day using DYE CG paint and I loved the flexibility of being able to switch over to First Strike rounds on the fly to take those long range kills like a sniper, then flip back the switch and have the fire power to make the charge to the next bunker. I definitely felt like it gave me a huge edge on the field and most importantly I had a lot more fun!!

U-Tac is an incredible venue, one of the best scenario fields in the world and extremely well run, a big thanks to Allan and his crew for a great event. The Blades & Triggers staff were also really helpful and made sure that players had everything they needed throughout the event. Thanks to Switch MultiMedia for covering the event and taking some great pics.

Also a big thanks to Troy Nagel and DYE for the DAM and tactical gear, I can’t wait for the next scenario game!

It was an amazing event and I highly recommend that you plan to be there next year!”

North v South – The Dye Tactical Experience

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Epic stories from the epic big-game, North v South UK, as told by the newest member of the Dye Tactical family William “The Prince” Clifford -

“On the weekend of May 4th and 5th, I headed over to DTE Swynnerton Military base to play in the North v South UK Big Game Festival. I have played in scenarios all over the UK, but have never made it to the UK’s largest game, I was anxious as what to expect.

Turning up at the event on Saturday afternoon when the event was in full swing was great, I have to say I was really impressed with how it was set up. All the big UK vendors you could think of were there. If you had left anything at home, you could easily pick it up.

I was introduced to all the guys from Nexus and got to meet one of my favorite players of all time: Pete ‘Mr U’ Utschig of the tactical Ironmen who had flown in from the states to be General for the Southern Army. After setting up my gear we headed down to the chronograph area and introduced a number of players to the features that the DAM had to offer, of which everyone was amazed with.

Later that afternoon we headed out into one of the more popular mini games; ‘UK versus the world’. There were easily 400 players out there on the field and running with Tactical Nexus and Mr U was an experience of a lifetime. It was great to be around a group of guys that play together on a regular basis. The communication was really good amongst us all, and we managed to push the opposing team back quickly. After playing this mini game I knew that the Sunday was going to be amazing.

It was an honour to represent DYE at such a huge event. The customer service that they offer is phenomenal; the DYE booth looked great, with all the Tactical gear on display and the techs were helping people set up their equipment until gone 8 o’clock on Saturday evening when all the other vendors had packed away.

The DYECAM really does work well on the field; I’ve found that it enables you to fit into multiple environments. It’s not like some camo that will only work well in specific environments; it fits in as an overall camo so it’s effective whatever the terrain. Running with a team of guys, who were all wearing it head to toe, really gave us that extra stealth advantage out there on the field. We not only looked the part, but we also played the part.

The Sunday was great; we managed to successfully take all of our objectives from pushing the North back to securing and holding an objective. It was only due to some unfortunate timing that we were unable to secure the compound for the final mission, as that would have won the event for the South.

Playing with a highly successful tournament team and one of the world’s most renowned scenario players, combined with the most effective camo and the deadly DAM’s really was an amazing combination. I think my personal highlight of the weekend was bunkering 10+ guys behind a building that we were trying to capture along with Shaun and Neil from London Nexus (one of the players on the receiving end was Greg Hastings), and I was lucky enough to catch it all on my camera!

I had the most fun that I’ve ever had out there on the paintball field with almost 2000 players attending, I will definitely be attending North versus South next year.

I would just like to thank DYE for giving me the opportunity to represent them and a huge thanks to all the guys at Nexus and Pete for being really welcoming.

If you’ve enjoyed the video, please feel free to check out my Facebook Page and stay tuned for all my adventures with DYE around the UK this season!”
