Millennium Series | Campaign Cup – London

The Millennium series 3rd leg takes us to a unique corner of England. Basildon, Essex. Where the fake-tan girls are as orange as the fruit, and the gym-happy men clearly missed the importance of legs day. They must be doing something right though, as every year we have been in Basildon the weather has been amazing.

Interesting locals aside, I actually quite enjoy this event. Partly because you aren’t playing lucky dip when choosing food on the menu, partly because its only an hour from home, but mainly because its a well run event, and although its the smaller event in terms of team numbers, the Nations Cup event adds an extra bit of fun for everyone.

The continued theme of having no traditional back-centre bunker on the field has given everyone a new challenge this year, and it’s interesting to see how teams have approached this. Some have thrived and others haven’t. This field was no different, and most matches saw the bravest players on each team playing in the complete open space where the back centre should be. Trying to not blink first against their opponent.

The Pro division is getting tougher by the event as teams continually up their game. With the strongest team line up in the last 5 years teams cannot afford to make any mistakes, as there is a queue of quality opposition waiting to take advantage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

London Nexus committed this ultimate sin, coming out flat against Infamous in the first game and then letting a 4-2 lead slip against Marseille Icon to leave them heading home much earlier than planned. Toulouse TonTon fared a little better. Qualifying for the quarterfinals 2nd place in their bracket after losing to Frankfurt Syndicate on Friday afternoon. That would be as far as the current series leaders would go, losing a hard fought match against the impressive Art Chaos Moscow.

In the SPL prelims, semi-pro team Drammen Solid stomped everyone 4-0 and carried form through to a 4th place finish come Sunday, losing out to fellow DYE team Offenburg Comin At Ya who took 3rd to maintain their hopes of earning an automatic promotion spot to the Pro division next year.

Drammen Solid told us how they felt the event went for them,

“Even though a top 4 placing is good in the tough SPL division, it feels bad to loose both the semi final and the battle for 3rd. In the semi, Hellwood got the best of us in the beginning of the match and scored 2 quick points. We stepped it up a bit, but it was too little too late and we lost 4-2. In the battle for 3rd, Comin at Ya had watched us well in previous games and beat us quickly 4-0. Congrats to Comin at Ya on another top finish. We will return stronger in Paris and we’re looking for that win!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In D1 Scorpions Milano continued their impressive run of form taking 2nd at the event and moving into the top spot in the series standings. They now made the top 4 at 6 of the last 7 Millennium events – only missing out in Bitburg last year.

Scorpions Team Captain said;

“Winning the head to head against London Defiance, allowed the team to achieved the top position in the Division 1 overall ranking. Getting the team even closer to their main goal promotion in to the SPL. With final results of second, third and second places in the previous events of the Millennium Series, the team is now preparing for the last event in Paris. GO GO SCORPIONS!!!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

D2 saw Bitburg champions Durham DV8 march all the way to the top 4 again, but the home win was not to be. However they now sit 2nd over all and are looking good for promotion to D1 next year – not bad for a team who has never made it to Sunday. DV8 seem to be benefitting from the Clint Moore | Art Of Winning training program!

Poison Ivy just missed out on another podium finish with 2 of their games going in to over time and one game running out of time. Never the less the Girls are still flying high in 3rd overall the highest position for a all female paintball team in a long time.

Division Three saw the Ugly Ducklings2 and Lethal Bizzle both came through the prelims 4 & 1, with Lethal Bizzle then powering through the knock out rounds and defeating the top-ranked team Apocalypse Brussels in the final to take an awesome home win!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Nations cup provided an impressive showing of its own, with 16 European nations fighting out for the chance to be Champions of Europe. As the sun was setting on Saturday evening, just the usual suspects remained – France, Germany, Great Britain and Russia. Featuring players from the top teams in country, there were familiar faces from Nexus, TonTon, Vision and Comin At Ya. All the finals were very tight games, with national pride on the line Great Britain faced up to Russia for a repeat of last years final.

Shooting the awesome DYE CG Paint team GB took the fight to the Russians, but ultimately ran out of time with the match finely poised at 2-1. The Brits are getting closer to regaining the crown the Russians took from them last year, but will have to wait until 2014 for the next opportunity.

 

DYE’s European teams take to the field with the flawless DM13, combined with the unparalleled DYE Rotor and I4 goggle systems and shooting the supreme DYE CG Paintballs.

TonTon Win Back-to-Back Millennium Series Events

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

TonTon are back on top.

After a win at the 2013 European Masters Millennium Series event TonTon are currently the #1 ranked professional paintball team in Europe, as well as an elite member of the PSP Champions Division.  With five more PSP/Millennium tournaments left to go in the 2013 season,  how great of a year can the TonTon have?  For this team… the sky is the limit.

Here are some words from Loic Voulot of TonTon after their win at Millennium Series Event #2 – The European Masters in Bitburg, Germany:

“After winning the first Millenium event in Frejus, getting qualified for the Champions Division at PSP Dallas, kept our spot at MAO, we have won again last weekend at the second Millenium event in Germany!

Winning 2 events in a raw is never easy, especially this season. The Millenium Series level has been increased by three US teams, the two Russians teams are strong as usual, and none of the 16 CPL teams are easy to play.

During this german event, as at the first one in France, we had to beat all three of those PSP teams to win the tournament.

The first day of the event was kind of strange for us. Pascal Hausser (our team coach) and Fabrice Colombo (our team captain) were not there.  Their flight was delayed but we managed to play strong paintball against Outrage, then Heat, finishing the day with a 2-0.

Playing sunday is always a good reward, but it can be a disappointed day too if you don’t do the job or play well.

In the quarter finals we played against Infamous. We lost the first nine minute point which had Infamous leading 0-1, but then we scored one point, then an other, and won this game 4-1.

Our semi final game was against Impact, a close game where we managed to keep control on the canadian team to go to the final 4-3.

After three days of the tournament, we played against Heat for the second time.  Heat was leading 4-2 at 1 min 17 before the end of the game, forcing us to score 2 quick points to equalize then a third 17 second point to win this final. We did it, final score 5-4.  To score 3 points in a min to Heat prove that the team is able to play on different rhythms, slow or fast regarding what is needed.

The CG paint, shot by the DM13 was absolutely perfect, brittle and accurate, for sure a BIG part of this win.

What a great 2013 season start for the team! If we want to be considerate as a world class team, we need to confirm those good results in Chicago during the next PSP event. This is why we’ll practice hard for the next four weeks.

Thanks to all the people rooting for us.

San Diego, California (February 22nd 2013)- DYE is excited to announce they have become an official paintball sponsor for the 2013 PSP Season.  All of DYE’s flagship teams will be shooting DYE Competition Grade (CG) Paintballs this year, including (but not limited to) the Los Angeles Ironmen, Tampa Bay Damage, and Toulouse TonTons.

DYE CG was introduced to the competitive paintball scene last year in the 2012 Millennium Series.  The resulting praise for it’s elevated level of performance created an overwhelming demand for the product, the high demand was at such a level DYE felt compelled to enter the US market by supporting the most competitive league in professional paintball, the PSP.

CG’s Dyetanium dark navy shell provides optimal shape and roundness with unmatched consistency from ball to ball. The DYE CG fill contains a proprietary high-visibility mixture, providing definitive marking ability. DYE’s custom engineered shell creates a perfect balance of allowing the user to see the paint in flight, but not easily reveal your position to opponents. CG’s vibrant yellow fill has an unmistakable marking ability, which is of utmost importance during competition.

Meticulously engineered and quality controlled to exact tolerances, the new DYE CG Paintballs define professional level accuracy.
