Team HULK Proves They are the Best Team in Ukraine… Again

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

An update from our Ukrainian flagship team HULK Kiev after a big win at the Cup of Ukraine May 19th, 2013 -

“This past weekend was the second stage of the Cup of Ukraine in 2013.  Even with the “new” organizers who had only three days to prepare the tournament, the quality of the event was not affected. Everything was done as it should be and all of the team and player’s needs were taken care of.

According to the schedule tournament was wedged between two European series, which seems logical enough. Those who play on the CPS could most effectively approach the stage of the Cup, and those who participate in the Millennium will be able to use the experience gained in the game on the field.

As for the games, the preliminaries were not a problem… we only lost one point! Perhaps it is no coincidence… the experience of winning with the guys early in the event inspired them to further victories!

In the Pro it was very similar, with the exception of Kiev Bears. They really do not feel comfortable on the field with this arrangement bunkers and conducted a number of successful matches are not which did not allow them to take first place even in the category of “Masters”. Instead, the Bears in the Pro delegated Scorpions team. It was their first experience of playing in the top but unfortunately, it does not become their most successful – the boys lost both games and finished fourth.

As for the winners, the most interesting from the point of view of the intrigue was to be a semi-final “Hulk” – “Kiev Express”.  They are one of the few teams in Ukraine who systematically train and participate in international tournaments.

At the last stage, we met in the finals. After the score was 3-0 in our favor, we began to rotate our playing staff to get match practice for all team members. Sometimes it can mean losing points, but overall it is good for the growth of the entire team. As a result, we ended 5-2 and in the final, where we were waiting for another Kiev team, ZZ Top.

Our team was traditionally supported by the best player from the 2012 season, Alexandr Berdnikov. His visit to Ukraine for the tournament – a delight for all fans of the sport. Playing against him – an honor for any athlete! To everyone unfortunately, the opponent could not find his best game, and even within the majority could not realize their advantage. Outcome of the game 5-0 and we win the third tournament of the season without losing a single match!

Thanks to everyone who cares about us and support, especially Oksana for pit support, our coach Alex Prystupov for the patience, captain for the organization and perseverance, Dye – for the best equipment on the planet, Autoradio – for many years of support! Special thanks to Ian Samoilov for the beautiful game and the experience that he enjoys sharing with us :)

HULK – 4th Place at Moscow IceBall Series

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

We’ve got an update from our Ukrainian team HULK who recently competed at the 2013 IceBall Series in Moscow -

“Past weekend Hulk team visited last leg of IceBall Series in Moscow. Team target was to check the strength of the team before season and to make a kind of test for the players who have three months of serious training. It was also necessary to test the new guns Dye DM13 – and they did not disappoint! Players reviews is only best, it is really a high-level marker – trouble free, accurate and convenient.

The team played two by to squads, each with 5 people, without substitutions; two players cannot come due to medical reasons. Both squads are out of the groups, unfortunately, only one team won a quarterfinal, which at the end took the 4th place in the tournament.

Given the fact that the tournament was seen as training, we do not see any failure in these results, as the basis of analysis of video footage can be concluded regarding the composition of the team for the upcoming season.

One conclusion can be sure – this season the team provided by the best paintball equipment in the world; thanks to Dye!”

HULK Sign Sergey Solnishkov as “External Consultant”

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

The HULK know exactly what it takes to make the most out of an off-season… recruit the best and start an extensive three month training program!

In Ukraine, competitive paintball teams are few and far between.  If you’ve got the resources, the best way to improve is to hire a “big gun” to train the team on how to reach their full potential as paintball players.  Who better then Sergey Solnishkov of Art Chaos Moscow.

Sergey is one of the best players in the world, and HULK is proud to work with him!” – Team HULK

Expect a new and improved HULK team this April for Millennium Series Event #1.  If you live nearby, be sure to check out Hulk Cup, a team birthday celebration and celebrity filled event coming this February 2nd, 2013 to Club Hyperion, Kiev!

 

Dye Teams & Stores Helping Children Across the Globe

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

Today we are proud to report on two extremely thoughtful stories sent to us from one of our newest Dye Sponsored teams in Ukraine, HULK, and one of our oldest South American retail outlets, Fast Ducks of Colombia.

First let’s travel to Ukraine, where HULK donated more than just a fashion show to a room full of underprivileged children in their region.  A big screen TV for the children to all share, gift bags for everyone, and the best present of all… an invitation to play paintball with HULK in the spring!  You’d think the TV was what would get the children excited, but according to HULK’s captain Yaroslav Yanushevich, the announcement of their upcoming paintball adventure got the kids all clapping their hands and jumping with excitement.

A few gifts and a paintball invitation was all it took to make this years holiday season extra special for a lucky few.  HULK put on this event out of their own pockets, but to them it was no sweat… they were happy to do it out of the kindness of their hearts.

Now we travel way South to Bogota, Colombia, where Fast Ducks Paintball put on a Toy Drive for some underprivileged kids in their area.  Dye’s own Billy Wing personally made the trip down to Colombia to hand deliver some toys for this great cause, and from all of the pictures they’ve sent us we can tell it was a major success!

Dye is extremely proud when individuals, teams, stores or anyone in the paintball industry takes it upon themselves to give hope to those who are less fortunate and to make their holidays a little brighter.
