Held in Pattaya Paintball Club, Pattaya, Thailand was the 2nd leg of TPOC Tournament Series. The event was great although it was hard to re-organize the team as we lost 3 main players from last year. We brought 3 D2 players from up country and it’s pretty hard for us to get together for training. So hard in fact, that we didn’t have a single practice before the tournament. We tried hard to reform the team to make it stable as soon as possible with positioning, game plan, but most importantly have fun.
Day 1 in the preliminary round we won over PRC Blueblood 3-2 / Hellbourne 3-2 / Demonic 3-1 and Speed Aisawan 3-0. For day2 prelims, we won over Aisawan 2-1 / CMX 3-0
Semi-final round, we met PRC Blueblood with young and aggressive players. So we were forced to concentrate on breakout and counter attack plan. We won 3-1.
In the final, we met Aisawan another strong team in Thailand. What ever happen throughout the match, we planned to keep the rhythm of the game and take advantage of it. The first set took 6mins. We both planned to counter attack with little opportunity. We held on long enough to win the first point. Yet we lost our 2nd set to Aisawan as they were playing a fast break plan and they tied it 1-1. With 22 seconds left, we head to overtime. In the overtime game, anything can happen. We thought that we are doing our best and we made it so far, let’s give it 100% and have fun…. We won! Winning the overtime point solidified us as Champion for TPOC 2nd Leg.
