Hulk wins again!

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Almost a month after the first stage of the Championship in France, we headed to the second event in Germany.

The team has preliminary preparation for the tournament, having played in the first stage of the Cup of Ukraine in Lviv. Even then, despite the confidence of the team due to victory in all of our matches, it became clear that the field is very “sticky”.  With huge corridors and low variability in the line of attack, movement on this field was minimal. This view is confirmed in sparring leading up to the tournament in Bitburg , with a strong contender – team “Russian Roulette”. Unfortunately, due to force majeure, both of our American legionnaires missed their flight, and considering the compactness of our team at this stage, only four players can participate in practice.

Americans arrived only the day of the tournament, which significantly affected the quality of their game in the first game day. After spending 15 hours in an aircraft and not knowing the field, it was very hard to count on the high-quality game that we are used to. To confirm our concerns, the first match of the tournament with a Norwegian Drammen Solid ended in a 1-3 loss with 4 penalties.

In the next match, we needed a victory over representatives from Denmark, Ugly Ducklings Odense, otherwise we would not venture out of the bracket! All things considered, the resolute attitude and motivation, did not cease to amaze! Final score 4-2 in our favor and 4 penalties! Another penalty in Saturday’s match against Norwegian Ronholt Blast almost turned the match with an outsider group in lottery. A heavy 2-1 victory sent us to Sunday!

In the Sunday morning game, we met with the Moscow team Force Majeure. Solidifying our lead 3-1 and eliminating all players; we receive another hot gun penalty, giving us another nervous game! 3-2 final victory!

In quarterfinals, we met with the Scorpions from Milan. This team represent 5 countries, originally led by Maximus Lundquist. This match saw long points and traditional penalties, but we take the win 2-1!

In the semifinals, fate brought us to Amsterdam Heat from Holland. In the first stage, we met with the team and won convincingly 4-0. Not everything was so easy this time! After losing residence in the CPL division, the team has the ambition to go back and confirm their skills! Penalty for mashing in overtime is not allowed to pass on the Dutchmen! A well-deserved third place and we are once again in the finals!

Uncertain in their game in the first stage, the Roosters Ulm Germany overcame all of their rivals and reached the finals at home!

The first point of the final game has developed not very well for us. Alex Goldman left on breakout, and after ten seconds we lose Marcelo Margott. After 30 seconds we are down to a 2 on 4. After nearly a seven minute game, we are down to a 1 on 2 of which the 2 players began almost simultaneously running at his bunker. A close call by the judges declared shooting after elimination and they received a 2 for 1 penalty. Next game we started against only three! Hitting one of the contenders in the first 10 seconds of the game and keeping all our players, we have a good chance to win this game for the remaining 3 minutes of playing time. We successfully took advantage, knocking out all rivals with 40 seconds to spare. Given the specifics of the field, it became clear that the fate of the meeting will be decided in overtime, which we spent at a high level, leaving no chance for the opponent and keeping his team’s four players!

This is our second victory in Division 1 SPL. What a great feeling and the chances of getting into the next division at the end of the series!

We express our gratitude to everyone who helps and supports. Special thanks to our permanent partner “Auto radio”, DYE – the best producer of paintball equipment, “Polar Bears” team for help in the pit area, our favorite captain Iaroslav and coach Alexander Pristupov, as well as all of our fans.

See you on the fields!

Hulk Wins Millennium #1!

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

The main task of the team for the season in 2014 – winning the SPL series. The first stage was to be illustrative and answer the question. Is the team in a state to achieve their goals? The answer is yes! Hulk passed its first test in France. In the group stage it was clear already that the team has great potential and can gain during the tournament.

After winning the first two games with the same score 4:1 against Copenhagen Ducks and Ronholt Blast, our team solved the problem with early access to the next stage of the tournament. The third preliminary was interesting in terms of testing a strong contender. FiveStar Lleida team is set as a serious problem for this season, as evidenced by the existence of such authority in the roster as Nicky Cuba, Damian Ryan, and Kevin Rudulph. The match was very interesting and rich, the teams exchanged alternately between points. A key moment in the match occurred when the score was 3-2 in our favor, 40 seconds before the end of the game, we were four to one. Player, out of despair ran out on our snake, in our opinion was eliminated by our player, who also shoots him. As a result, strange decision by the judges, they gave the point to  the opponent and moved the game into overtime. Overtime was a contender for the 3:4 final score.

Next we played by the well-known opponent of last season , Drammen Solid. Not an easy match, but quite convincing victory 4-2. In the quarterfinals, a convincing victory over Amsterdam Heat, who in 2012 played in the CPL, 4-0.

In the semifinals, we met with substantial effort ML Kings. Three American Pro players and Slava Shturmas are able to compete with any team, including the CPL, so we did not have any illusions regarding the prospects for an easy victory in this match. We knew that the winner would be the one who made fewer mistakes. As expected, the match was incredibly tense. First, when the score was 3:3, ML Kings did not realize their numerical advantage and the game ended by the time. In overtime, Alex Goldman, in three to three game, unsuccessfully ran for the bunkering and, unfortunately, brought a penalty. What happened next, other than a miracle will not name. Last remaining in the field, Marcelo Margo was able to pull a seemingly lost match by hit three players of the opposing team. Total incredibly nervous 4-3 victory!

In the final, besides Hulk, made it very strong Swedish team, Falkoping Mashive.

It is worth noting a good game Marcelo, who at 3-2, won a 1 on 2 to win the match. 4-2 victory in the final of the Hulk !

Team made the first step towards achieving our goal! Ahead of hard training and a lot of intense matches!

Grateful for the achievements of our team, our sponsors and companies DYE, which produces the best paintball equipment on the planet and Autoradio for the media support. And of course the team would not exist without the support of Captain Iaroslav and hard work of our coach Alexander Pristupov.

Also many thanks to the pit area, Oksana , Galya . Special thanks to Tanya Nikolaeva and Sasha for their tremendous contribution to our victory. Oksana, happy birthday this victory dedicated to you!
