StaarGate 2014

On the weekend of the 14th and 15th of September I ventured North to Leeds, to play the annual StaarGate big game, held at the Powerplay field. This would be my first year playing Staargate, and having heard such great stories; with over 500 players attending, I just had to play!

Arriving early on the Saturday was great – there was so much to walk around and see; from a bouncy castle to a 20v20 speedball match. Once I’d set my tent up, I headed down to the staging area to gear up and take part in the oldies v young-guns game. We played two rounds of this and us young-guns won confidently each round. It was a great chance to play on a small segment of the field and get a taste for what the big game was going to be like!

The organisers of the UK’s tournament series – the CPPS – were running a Sup’Air mini game to give people the chance to try it out for the first time, so later that afternoon I hopped on there and had a blast – still rocking the DAM, ofcourse! It brought back some great memories from my days as a tournament player, and my equipment preformed just as flawlessly as it does out in the woods!

Sunday began with an explosive start and we quickly managed to push the blues right back into their re-spawn area thanks to some aggressive gameplay. My highlight of the weekend was sneaking through the bushes and winning a 4 on 1 – I mean it when I say this camo works. Take a look at some of the photos! (Credits to BradloPhotography).

Timing the last push perfectly with great effect, we managed to push the blue team out of the key areas thanks to decisive communication from our faction leaders. We dominated gameplay on the Sunday and we ultimately cruised home victorious. It was a great weekend with lots of exciting fire fights on the field, and a great opportunity to catch up with some old friends off the field.

Huge thanks to Shoreline Outdoor Paintball for by far the best scenario game I’ve been to all year and a huge thanks to Dye Paintball UK and Dye Tactical for the outstanding gear.

The final stop on my war tour is a mag fed only event that I’ll be playing in Draklow Tunnels. So look forward to seeing some epic firefights!

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.

“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!!!”
