For the first time, WAIAKILL – DyeTactical, entered into a UWL tournament in Ecuador. It was an awesome experience and will fully recommend it to any team.
Although it was an introductory version, most of the UWL rules were applied. There were a couple rules that were totally different to what we are used to in other woodsball/tactical tournaments like TacTen. No ramping and 10 bps were probably the ones that shook us most. First-strike rounds weren’t allowed as well.
The tournament was played at ‘Cerro del Muerto’ (translated Hill of the Dead) in Playas, Ecuador which is a desert environment. There was a lot of sand, dry bushes and a dry river that crossed the field and served as trenches. Our DyeCam gear was perfect for this location as we blended with the enviroment.
We started our first match against Team Dragones. We grabbed 2 out of 4 flags within the first three minutes. A couple minutes later we conquered the third flag, giving us a bit more confidence. At the last re-entering in the 14th minute we went all in and conquered the 4th flag at the other teams starting point. This gave us all the points available.
Our next game was played against Iguana Clan, which had a similar result to the first game. Then we had to face Rojo Tactical Team with was a little bit tougher but still won it.
Our Dye Dam’s, Dm13′s and Reflex’s performed flawlessly in this tough terrain. One of our teammates had the honor of playing with his DM14 which recently arrived with our Dye Dealer Luis Neira from World Cup a couole days before.
The final game we had to face Team Dragones which in the global scoring came up in 2nd place advanced to finals. WAIAKILL ended up first with a big difference in points from the second place, but the final match resets the points to zero.
The final game was a tough one, but the points won by our scout when he grabbed the first flag and never losing the second flag gave us the victory. We used Dye CG paint which gave us an advantage over other teams.
UWL format is very interesting and fun and we recommend it for any woodsball/tactical player that enjoys mission oriented tournaments.
