Dye Tactical’s Pete “Mr. U” Utschig Reports from North vs South Big Game in the UK

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

We sent Pete “Mr. U” Utschig across the pond to attend the largest scenario paintball game in the UK – North v South.  He came back with a bag full of empty clips, a massive kill count, and a new respect for the British paintball scene.

By Pete “Mr. U” Utschig

“3 days, 2000 players and 7,000 miles later I’m home from another epic adventure. Last weekend I set out to meet with the DYE Europe crew and Team Tactical Nexus. I was invited to be one of the South’s Team Generals in Englands largest scenario game, “North vs South”.

The game centers around Sundays major event which pits players from Northern England against players from the South. The three day event is advertised as a paintball festival, and that’s exactly what it is. Players from all over Europe come to camp, shop, party, and of course play paintball. To start things off, we played a little CQB.  Check out this video of me changing my DAM to Recon Mode:

 

Friday players and vendors set up and were treated to 20 vrs 20 mini games. DYE Europe, myself and a couple of the Nexus players set up a DAM demo allowing all the mini game players to take the DAM out for a run. The feedback was the same as always… “This gun is insane” or “Best gun I have ever shot”.

Saturday the game format broke the competitors in two teams.  One team was made up of only English players,  the other was the rest if the world. I got to play alongside long time friend and Northern team guest general, Greg Hastings.  Lucky for Greg, he was on my team Saturday because on Sunday he felt the sting of my DAM. Unfortunately for Greg, it was all caught on my Replay camera that he gave me.

Sunday was the big battle, along side Team Tactical Nexus we brought the pain train, completing all but one of our missions. As the day fell to a close, we ultimately were short on points and the Northern Team led by Jed Green and Greg Hastings were victorious. It was another welt filled weekend but the games were intense, the people were amazing and the camera footage is epic. I wouldn’t have had it any other way!!! Bloody Knuckles, Ironmen Style.

See you guys at Living Legends with the rest of the Ironmen!!!”

Team Dynamix on a Winning Streak! SARPL Event #3 Recap

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

Dynamix are on a winning streak, taking 1st place once again at the recent SARPL Event 3. Craig Marley gave us a write up of the event and shared his thoughts on the performance of the new 2013 Dye product line and Dye CG paint:

SARPL Event 3 – Sunday, 7 April 2013

We had just recieved our new Dye gear and DM13′s before the event, straight out the box, they shot like a dream!

The event started on a very cold Sunday morning putting the Dye CG paint to the test but despite the cold the paint performed really well.

It was amazing because we have only recently gone into winter and at the previous event it had been extremely hot but the Dye CG

paint performed in both extreme temperatures!! This paint truly is incredible!

Dynamix dominated through out the event not losing a single match or point in the prelims. Our new player Daniel Hertog got a

chance to prove himself on the dorito side, he communicated well and got a lot of kills, this kid is a good asset to the team.

 

Dynamix dominated the event, only dropping one point all day to take first place. We also got the fastest game of 31 seconds due to

the all new Dye ultra light gear. The DM13 out the box ran great and CG paint continues to impress us.

Thank you’s to:

Dye for great gear and paint.

Blades and Triggers for all your support for the last 7 years and are proud to be affiliated as a Dye BNT Team.

Havaianas our new addition to our sponsorship for our stylish feet.

Switch Multimedia for the great photography.

And a big thanks to the SARPL for hosting a great event and to all the teams that travelled far and wide to make this a success!

 

Dye DAM Takes Bravo Company to 1st Place!

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

Team Bravo Company from South Africa recently won the second event of the Gauteng Bushball Series using their new DAM markers.

Len Nery from Bravo Company gave us a rundown of the event and filled us in on how the DAM’s performed:

“This was the second leg of the seven man 2013 Bushball Series and the first time the Dye Assault Matrix was used during a competition in this country.

Bravo Company Paintball arrived at the event as hot favourites after winning the previous event that was held at The Bush Paintball Field (http://bushpaintball.co.za/) and we certainly made an impression by arriving for the event with seven Dye Assault Matrix markers to point at opposing teams! Within the team all members began the day with one goal and that was to win the event without losing a single game and that’s exactly what transpired. Not only did Bravo Company convincingly win every game including 4 perfect scores (no loss of players), but at most only lost two players in a single game!

The pin point accuracy delivered by the DAM was a key factor in our success and whilst only ten First Strike rounds were fired by Bravo Company during the tournament it yielded one confirmed kill.

The accuracy when sighting down the rail is mind blowing and a refreshing change to any other marker we’ve used. A few of the Bravo Company members have removed some of the extra rails and reported that the Dye Assault Matrix felt very light and was easy to manoeuvre during game play and we are also very impressed with the ease of removing the bolt.

It is a brilliantly thought out marker that will allow Bravo Company Paintball to be a serious force to be reckoned with during 2013.”

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.”

Aruba Madness Makes Their Mark at 2012 PSP World Cup

Aruba Madness makes their mark on World Cup 2012

Aruba Madness, a DYE sponsored team from the small Caribbean Island, Aruba, played their hearts out this year at the 2012 PSP World Cup.  These beliers proved this year that it doesn’t matter where you live or how small paintball is where you’re from, all that matters is dedication, training, and heart.  For Aruba Madness, every weekend at practice, every tournament they played away from their country, every dollar they spent was all in preparation for the 2012 PSP World Cup.  Aruba is small, only 69 square miles, and a population of barely 100,000. But like many small countries, what it lacks in size it makes up ten-fold with national pride.

The team spent all of 2012 traveling throughout Latin America to larger events in order to find the toughest competition. They even traveled as far as Florida for a leg of the PSP affiliate league, the CFPS, where Aruba Madness Youngbloodz took first in their division.  When it was Time for World Cup, the boys from Aruba were confident and ready to represent their small country. They knew Aruba paintball could be competitive on the global stage, and they were ready to prove it.

The Aruba Madness camp fielded three teams for World cup this year. AM Kids played well for their first International event, placing just short of a Sunday showing. Aruba madness finished 1st in the prelims and ended up taking 6th overall in their division.  AM Youngbloodz powered through the competition, only losing two games the entire weekend.  Unfortunately, one of those losses came during the finals, and Yougbloodz had to settle for 2nd place.

All three teams from the Aruba Madness camp played with passion and proudly represented their small country all weekend long.  Thrilled at their accomplishments on Sunday afternoon, the team was not content to rest for long. Aruba Madness is already back on the training field, and seeking out tougher competition, with trips to more PSPs planned for next year. The Bar has been set and the goals have been raised; Win World Cup 2013.

“Aruba Madness would like to thank all of our local and international fans very much for all the support. Also we want to give big thanks our sponsors that made this year possible:”

DYE Precision Inc, Aruba Tourism Authority, Daniels Steak & Chophouse, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Hot Triggers and Paintball Supply Aruba.
