Royalty’s narrow miss at WCPPL Event #2

Friday, June 6th, 2014

This is Royalty’s second event this season for WCPPL. For the first time since 2009, Dave Bains and Mike Hinman have finally agreed to host a tournament at Capital Edge Paintball Park. This is an excellent opportunity for Northern California teams to get a taste of the event as a majority of the events are held down in Las Vegas / Southern California. Royalty will play the whole tournament on Saturday.You can only imagine what it is like to play 7 race-to-4 matches in 90-degree weather. On top of that you are playing very long matches on the very slow PSP MAO layout. Royalty comes in hot in the preliminary matches with 3 wins and a tie.

The next 2 matches against Asylum and Wicked had to deal with a little luck in our favor, resulting in Royalty moving on to the finals against Dave Bains’ DMG. The first 2 points were a sweep for DMG, almost up 5 bodies every point. Royalty is on their heels for the next few points but we manage to come back and even it up at 2-2 before time ran out. Both teams were about to witness the biggest nail-biting match of their paintball career. The winner will be decided by the best of 3 1-on-1’s. Clayton Parker is the first to step up to the plate, stalemate. Brian Dubois is second, stalemate.

Johnny Won is up next, he told his teammates that he was going to pretend his hopper was jammed so that the opponent had no decision but to rush up. His execution did not work and DMG is in the driver’s seat 1-0. Jerry Caro is next up to plate and eventually; DMG gets a shot in on him. DMG wins the event by winning 2 1-on1s. This is the second time Royalty comes out with a second place. We consider this tournament a learning experience and Royalty plans to come out next event with an overall better performance. In our eyes, 2nd place is the 1st loser, and Royalty will do whatever it takes to ensure that they do not get a 2nd place again.

Royalty goes all-in at WCPPL Las Vegas!

WCPPL Event #1 | Las Vegas, Nevada (March 28th – 30th)

Dye sponsored Team Royalty have been grinding it out every weekend at Santa Clara Paintball. They have had tremendous help with some of the members of the new revamped Ironmen. With the majority of the team heading to Las Vegas on Thursday night, the dreaded car ride had a lot of them anxious for what is to come on Friday morning’s preliminary matches. Friday consisted of 3 matches, with Dave Bains DMG Green team being Royalty’s biggest threat (supposedly). Royalty came out hungry with the first 2 matches consisting of a 4-0 sweep. Against Dave Bains DMG Green team, Royalty came out swinging with 4-1, with the one point being a minor slip up.

Saturday consisted of a major match against Dave Bains second DMG team; the score is neck and neck at 3-3, with roughly 40 seconds on the clock. Royalty shoots 2 snake side players off the break, allowing their snake side player to push fluidly in the 50 snake. With all the attention drawn to Royalty’s snake player, the dorito side aggressively pushed down the field and eliminated the rest in order to clutch the flag hang with only 6 seconds left on the clock. Score was 4-3, Royalty is ecstatic.

Sunday rolls around and the pressure is on. We swept the Bushwhackers 4-1 in the quarterfinals, and LA Wrecking Crew 4-2 in the semifinals. Royalty is heading in the finals against LA Collision. Its neck and neck at 2-2, with LA Collision sending their player to the 50 A, Royalty starts dropping bodies. LA Collision continues to win the match 4-2. Though Royalty is upset, some good can be taken from this loss. Second place is not taken lightly, and we will be sure to come out swinging at the next WCPPL.

After a sold out, super fun and scorching hot 100+ degree event, it was only fair that DYE gave away a few awesome prizes to the hard working teams and players that made the trip to WCPPL Event #2 at Vegas Xtreme Paintball Park in Las Vegas.

The DYE Nerf Gun Challenge was in full effect, with many past winners and dedicated challengers ready to win a brand new set of i4′s.  Each day we gave away a pair of goggles to the best nerf gun dart shooters in Vegas.

New for this event, DYE also gave away a set of i4 Goggles to the best Vine Video posted with the #DYEPaintball.  If you want to see a ridiculous(ly painful) video, check us out on Vine @DYEPaintball and search #DYEPaintball.  This event’s winner were a couple kids from Team FUZION.

Several DYE Teams also hit the podium at this event, including GNARKILL – 2nd in D3 and NORTHSIDE EMPIRE – 3rd in D4.  We know both teams will come back strong for Event #3 at Camp Pendleton Paintball Park and make a run for that 1st place WCPPL trophy.

Big Wins for DYE at 2012 WCPPL Las Vegas Open

Monday, November 19th, 2012

The 2012 WCPPL Event #4 – Las Vegas at Vegas XTreme Paintball was a picture-perfect way to end the 2012 paintball season.  Ideal weather, an excellent venue, and big wins for DYE!

After a very successful 2012 WCPPL season, Dye is proud to report that Team Royalty took some Gold home to NorCal with a well deserved 1st place finish in Vegas and a 1st place overall ranking for the season.  Led by the legendary Mr. Shane Pestana and featuring Ryan Martin and Tokahe Hamil from the LA Ironmen, this stacked roster fought hard to redeem themselves after the recent PSP World Cup… and redemption was theirs.  Congratulations to them, and  to Team Destiny’s Kat Secor and the LA Hitmen who won 1st place in Division 3, and Northside Empire, Vegas Xtreme’s home team who won in D4.

Dye’s booth at the WCPPL Open was hoppin’ all weekend long.  There were fun contests to win awesome prizes, an Ironmen poster signing, demo’s of the DM13, Reflex, and new DAM, and of course our tech support was hard at work making sure all of the Dye products on the field were performing their best.
