No more yellow - Poll results so far

I ran a poll regarding the 'No more yellow' post and so far, EVERYONE is against yellow as a second protected color after orange. For those that missed the poll, it's right there at the right side bar for this blog.


For all its worth, I still think the solution is not pushing the bulk of the problem to the players.

Paintball Manager - Web based paintball game!


Here's a game that I've been playing for quite awhile. It's called Paintball Manager. In this game, you take over a paintball team with a set of roster and try to build the team up to greater glory. Think of Championship Manager or one of those sports management game - and add paintball into it. So, when you're in between real life tournaments and looking to kill that paintball addiction, here's the game for you. You can play it anywhere and anytime.

Main team page

Here's a quick guide on how to start the game. I won't go into the details as there is a help link inside the game itself that could explain more.

After registering a team, you'll be given a team in the most lower division (Division 4) in a league. If you're from Malaysia or other country (where there aren't many teams/players), you'll be definitely be grouped in the International League. You will automatically take over a bot team that is already there. Without user control, bot teams usually played like chicken and cows, no strategy whatsoever. So once you take over a team, you have to start deploying tactics.

Team's league standings, schedule and results

Explore the control around and feel your way around the it. What I would recommend is to look at your team's league standing. If there is a high chance you'll finish strong and with some prize money, then good. You can start scouting for better players to strengthen the team.

Then, try to enter tournaments on to win money and keep your players form up. You can win alot of money winning tournaments in a week. In a typical week, you have 3 tournament days you can enter - Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.

Paintball TV - Watch your team live in action!

Now that we got games going on, look ahead into your schedule and check the field you're playing. Create tactics and select your lineup for each field you're playing. After a few games, you will want to start tweaking and fine tuning your tactics. Or maybe, upgrade your arena for better home ticket sales. More sales, means more money for the team.

Watch from your players point of view!

And do upgrade your Java engine cause you need it to view paintball TV. One of the coolest features in this game is watching the game live! Click on the TV icon at your fixture and wait for the Java applet to load up and enjoy your game.

See which moves or tactics works best or watch how your opponents play and learn from them. After each game, you will be given the game stats on how each players perform. Oh, did I mention that this whole game is X-Ball format, race to 7.

Currently there are like 5 Malaysian teams in this game and we're all grouped in the International League and in different divisions. If we can get alot more Malaysian players to join, we just might get our own league!

As of now, National Team has only just starting up and awaiting its official tournament. And I'm looking for more in-game Malaysian 'players' to join the national team.

PaintBaller.ie spoke to Markus about this game he created.

PaintBaller.ie - When and where did you get the idea for an online paintball game?
Markus - I have always been big fan of manager games and played lot of old footy manager games. Some years ago I started playing a bit similar game as Paintball Manager. It was fun at first, but I felt I could create much better match simulation, because I had been doing some artificial intelligence work for games earlier. So I started to write my own simulation and eventually it turned into full game.

PB.ie - What is your own paintball background?
Markus - I have followed professional paintball for some years, especially PSP and LA Ironmen, but other than that I don't have serious paintballer background.

PB.ie - What are your plans for future development of the game if any?
Markus - At the moment I am focusing on finishing some missing features such as layout editor, friendly leagues and national teams. It would be great to work with paintball industry, but I feel that the game needs to be fully functional first until you can start talks with other parties.

PB.ie - How about a fantasy paintball league based on actual players in the Millennium Series or PSP?
Markus - That's obviously something you cannot just start on your on, but if a league provides financial support I would love to be part of making fantasy paintball game. I guess in current economic situation this is not really possible.

No more yellow

Recently the Malaysian government made it a ruling that all cars more than 10 years old would have to go for a yearly checkup with Puspakom. They will have to be scrutinized and checked for road worthiness - In their hope of making sure all the 'aged' cars are still safe to drive.


The government has also forgotten that, the road users wouldn't have to keep the old cars if they didn't impose hefty tax on imported cars, high interest rates on loans, strict terms for loans and others. If they make imported or local cars cheaper and also easy on the loans, I'm sure we would all change cars every 4-5 years and we won't have any problems with old cars.

Instead they shot themselves on their foot by making it harder to buy a new car, then made it even harder by having yearly inspection after 10 years, and if it's not road worthiness - you're effed. Either you have to get a new car (which is already hard in the beginning) and you don't at all. See the problem?

That's pretty sad so my mind wanders back to paintball.

MY-NPL 2010 - New Rules and Regulations
Beginning of 2010, orange and YELLOW will be prohibited colors. I understand perfectly with orange, but yellow?

Unless I'm missing something, there weren't any problems regarding yellow equipments from the Millennium Series, NPPL and even here. Joy Division with their classic leopard prints jersey were not a problem at all - even when playing X-ball (where everything is just blazing fast@)

Yellow and the Pro Teams
We pitted with Stockholm Ignition in Paris, and yes they wore bright yellow and blue, and I can really see which were new hits and which were old hits. The good orange fill they were using there is just great! Thick and bright orange. You can spot it very easily.

That brings it back to us. If the Millennium Series didn't have any problems with it, why are we? Are we doing something wrong here?

Is the sun light here so different that it sheds different kind of 'light' here? which makes the yellow appears orange-ish or the other way round?

I'm sure most of you played in the recent World Cup Asia and were there any problems in using yellow gears? Black jerseys with yellow highlights, or vice versa. Of course it's understandable that you can't use yellow or transparent hoppers. But other than that, I think yellow is ok.

Why it's not a good move
A good friend of mine raised his concerns in his facebook recently about this issue. He has a really good point. Some new players and teams probably have bought expensive tournament gears and just couldn't wait for next year to start playing and only to find out, their gears can't be use cause it has yellow on it.

They effed. Gears aren't cheap. They probably have spent alot of their own money and maybe some of their parents to get these gears and it's pretty much worthless now. Now, the sport is suffering.

Having these restrictions (especially unnecessary ones) is actually putting a dent in the sports growth. I'm sure most of us would like to see more players and teams coming in every year and for each tournament.

If its easy to come in for a tournament and have fun, I'm sure they'll be coming in again and maybe next time, bring more new friends and teams.

We're still discouraging players to wear anything resembles real combat/camouflage, but at the same time we're also doing this.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it
I don't remember that the league or the refs were having problems with orange paint on yellow equipments before and I certainly don't want to think that this move is just to make the refs job any easier - cause it won't.

What the organizer could do is to keep things the way there are and only make sure that the next batch of paint will have the thick, super bright orange fill. That would be so much easier.

Oh, and the organizer is still asking for feedbacks and suggestions - so if you guys have any thoughts on this issue, share it with us.

Meanwhile, here are some teams that rocked yellow!

Sacramento XSV

Toulouse Ton Ton


Stockholm Joy Division

Stockholm Ignition

Sydney SWAT

Unless the organizer has already decided to introduce yellow fill paint (behind this whole yellow rule thing) then that is another whole story.

World Cup Asia - Results & Conclusions

Here are the official results of the recent concluded World Cup Asia 2009, here in Bukit Jalil National Stadium, Kuala Lumpur. Aussie Rules! Props to them. we (Malaysian teams) will come back stronger next year!

DIV 1
1st - Hostile Intentions (Australia)
2nd - SWAT (Australia)
3rd - DFT Eclipse (Iran)
4th - STK (Australia - Perth)

DIV 2
1st - Hytorious (Thailand)
2nd - Global Pinoy 2 (Philippines)
3rd - Mission To Mars (Thailand)
4th - Splatmasters (Philippines)

DIV 3
1st - SSSC Killer (Malaysia)
2nd - Oscar Legio X (Malaysia)
3rd - PPS Syndrome (Malaysia)
4th - Nitamago 1 (Japan)

DIV 4
1st - Overkill (Malaysia)
2nd - Contract Killers (Singapore)
3rd - Spunky Militia (Malaysia)
4th - Ying Yang (Malaysia)

My thoughts - I just love the weather; cloudy and during our games - it didn't rain at all. Even if it did, very light drizzle. This time around, Division 1 played the xball/millennium format (race to 3), and I just LOVE the setup.

Fill stations for each team staging area. Two sections for the playing team and the NEXT team as well. Oh, and basically, you can find the fill stations almost everywhere! Even on the way to the toilet! LOL!

But after so many years, I must say the playing condition for D1 field is pretty horrible. Snake side corner, the gound is basically dipped down and the dried mud really made some slides/dives impossible!

I really hope next years WCA, the organiser could find a better ground so that players can really push themselves to the limit and not worry of getting injured (by uneven ground).

All in all, this is a really great event. Huge trade booths, pro players around, .50 cal stuffs and much more! Awesome!

My Verdict:
Vendor: 3/5
Venue: 3/5
Setup: 4/5
Weather: 4/5
Participation: 4/5

Photos should be up really soon. Meanwhile, you guys can just keep refreshing these websites for photos. LOL!

MY-NPL 2009 - Grand Finale - The Conclusion

The Malaysian National Paintball League has come to a grandeur end with the completion of the fifth round which was held on 7 and 8 November 2009 at The Malaysian Paintball Academy, Astaka Sports Complex, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. The fourth edition of the MY-NPL received the fullest support from The Malaysian Ministry of Youth and Sports and The Petaling Jaya City Council.

A total of 62 teams competed in the final round comprising of 10 teams in Division 1, 7 teams in Division 2, 16 teams in Division 3 and 29 teams in Division 4. The proceeding of the first day of the tournament started with the preliminary matches of the Division 2 and 3 in the morning session whilst the Division 1 and 4 in the second late morning session.

All knock-out quarterfinal, semifinal and final matches and the special event involving the listeners, deejays and local celebrities of SINAR FM were carried out in the second day of the tournament. The Political Secretary to The Minister of Youth and Sports, Dr. Junaidy Abd Wahab has gracefully officiated the Closing and Prize Giving Ceremony on Sunday.

The Division 2 preliminary round table on the first day was expectedly spearheaded by Team NOMERCY, the fourth round champion in Melaka last August who was the current leader of the 2009 Overall Table. Also checking in to the semifinal rounds are Teams SUNSHIRO from Kuantan, WARRIOR and COBRA MERCENARIES.

In the semifinal, SUNSHIRO defeated WARRIOR whilst COBRA MERCENARIES, who are making a comeback after taking a near one season break, lost easily to NOMERCY. In the final, SUNSHIRO, the Division 3 Overall Champion 2008, gave a good fight until the third deciding match before losing to NOMERCY whilst COBRA MERCENARIES came on top in the deciding third and fourth placed match against WARRIOR that went till the deciding one-on-one game. NOMERCY, besides taking home prizes worth RM5,000.00 as the round champion, were also declared as the MY-NPL Dision 2 Overall Champion for 2009, pocketing RM12,000.00.

In the Division 3, the fourth round champion RAPTOR continued their winning streak, topping the preliminary round table. Their nearest rival to the race to the Division 3 Overall Champion, Team ROUGHNECKS from Johor, however, still able to march to the quarterfinal round in a less-fashionable mean, in the twelvth position, so as to ensure the race heats up.

Nevertheless, fate has met up this two nemesis in the semifinal round whilst the other semifinal was between CMX BUCCANEERS with another team from Johor, OSB PIRATES. RAPTOR defeated ROUGHNECKS in a pulsating duel that lasts until the third deciding game whilst OSB PIRATES defeated CMX BUCCANERRS with ease. With this victory, RAPTOR needs to win their final match let alone hoping for CMX BUCCANEERS to do them favour by beating ROUGHNECKS in the third and fourth placing match.

Nevertheless, luck run out for RAPTOR, losing the final match in the hand of OSB PIRATES and at the same time ROUGHNECKS beat CMX BUCCANEERS in the third and fourth placing match. OSB PIRATES won prizes worth RM4,000.00 as the round champion whilst ROUGHNECKS was pronounced as The 2009 Division 3 champion, pocketing prizes worth RM9.000.00. ROUGHNECKS never won any of the five (5) rounds of MY-NPL 2009 but their consistent performance to be among the podium finisher throughout the year has yielded the success.

In Division 1, DEMONZ RED top the preliminary round table, followed by the Fourth Round Champion NEMESIS LEGION, RASKAL and WOLVERINEZ SINAR FM, to strengthen their position as the four seeded teams coming to the knock out round quarterfinal in Day Two. The crucial match between the top two teams in The Overall Champion Table, NEMESIS LEGION and DELTAROVERS proved to be the pick of the day.

Nonetheless, NEMESIS LEGION was pronounced the Overall Champion of Division1 MY-NPL 2009 the moment they beat with ease DELTAROVERS in the quarterfinal duel, collecting the RM15,000.00 pay cheque. This is NEMESIS LEGION second successive Overall Division 1 Champion after winning the same in 2008, besides winning the Division 2 Overall Champion in 2007.

However, their luck run out in the semifinal round, having lost to RASKAL, who set up the final match for the grand finale against DEMONZ RED, who beat WOLVERINEZ SINAR FM in the other semifinal. In the final, DEMONZ RED quashed aside the challenge of RASKAL by beating them 2-0, the bring home the round chapion prize of RM9,000.00 whilst NEMESIS LEGION are in the third place after beating WOLVERINEZ SINAR FM, also with the same scoreline.

In Division 4, the final preliminary round of Day one of the tournament saw 3 out of 4 teams from south of the peninsula, SHOOT IN RAGE, KARMA from Singapore and JACKALS, conquering the table toppers. The surprise package of Team X-O-DUST, saw them in the first place, the winning streak that they still enjoy until the semifinal round, where they eventually lost to JACKALS, game that could only decided in the third game. SHOOT IN RAGE, meanwhile, marched to the final, holding a reputable record of not having losing even a single match, 12 games in total. SHOOT IN RAGE denies KARMA for a place in final whilst the other semifinal, to set up all-Johor final with JACKALS, which at the end of the day the crown belong to SHOOT IN RAGE whilst X-O-DUST came out victory in the third place.

The Grand Finale also saw the encouraging participation of teams from the public sector like The Immigration Department, Malaysian Highway Authority, Ministry of Tourism, Kuala Selangor Local Council, Forest Research Institute of Malaysia and MARA College of Higher Vocational Skill, as a encouraging sign of the sport development in Malaysia, even we saw that two of these teams managed to place themselves among the top sixteen.

MY-NPL season of 2010 shall begins on 30 and 31 January 2010 and shall continue to provide the platform for the sports development in Malaysia. The International Super Seven Championship (ISSC) scheduled on 22 and 23 May 2010 shall further consolidate the development in Malaysia.

My Top 5 Treat List

While browsing thru some foreign news today, I read that two lucky Britons won the £90m EuroMillions jackpot! Such luck for some of us, and if that even happens to me, here's what I would want. Its a scenario where the money isn't as much as the EuroMillions, probably in the region of thousands of ringgit.

Here's my 5 simple list.

1 - A new MacDev Clone
2 - A shiny black Dell Inspiron 13 Laptop.
2 - Another Paris trip for the European Paintball Millennium Series.
4 - Another long holiday trip with my wife.
5 - A new L lens for my DSLR.

Here's why. MacDev Clone surpasses the Droid and is still the best spoolers out there and it doesn't cost a bomb like other brand. Paris trip is self explanatory. You can't beat the Millennium Series atmosphere. It's the best!


Another long holiday in Europe would perfect for me and the wife. We just can't get enough of travelling. It's addictive. And to get those really postcard type photos, you need good lens for the faithful DSLR that I have.

And after all the photos taken from trips and paintball events, I need a machine to edit and upload all of it to my site. This is where the Dell Inspiron 13 Laptop comes in. And with free wifi pretty much available everywhere, this will one of the things you just can't leave home without!

Oh by the way, the new Inspiron 13 is on promotion. Just follow this link and use this special code 7ZQVQF2RLZRKW3 to get a RM100 Instant Cash Redemption!

So, get one today!

MY-NPL'09 Event 5 - Grand Finale


MEDIA RELEASE

The excitement and anxiety of The Malaysian National Paintball League (MY-NPL) 2009 will come to the ultimate peak on 7 & 8 November with the execution of The Fifth Round The Grand Finale at The Malaysian Paintball Academy (MAPAAC), Kompleks Sukan Astaka, Petaling Jaya. It is expected to attract participation of more than 80 teams from all over the country and Singapore to determine The Malaysian Champions in Division 1, 2 and 3 that offer prizes worth RM36,000.00 and also the Round Podium Finishers in Divison 1, 2, 3 and 4 that offer prizes worth more than RM40,000.00. The MY-NPL is held with the support from The Ministry of Youth and Sports Malaysia, Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya (MBPJ) and Nemesis Paintball Sports Club, with the assistance from the corporate partners of The National Daily of Sinar Harian, Libur Magazine, 100PLUS Isotonic Drinks dan Radio Stations Sinar FM dan Hitz FM.

In Division 1, the success of team Nemesis Legion to come up as The Champion of The Fourth Round in Melaka last August, added with the failure of Team Deltarovers to be among the podium finishers has made the race of being The Overall Champion of The Division 1, to take home prizes worth of RM15,000.00, wide open. Team Nemesis Legion is currently leading the pack after 4 rounds with 183 points, leaving Team Deltarovers 6 points behind with 177 points and Team Macdev Ronin at the third place with 164 points. Nevertheless, other teams, especially the sole representative from Johor, Team Raz Legion, who shockingly managed to be in the podium finisher at the second place in The Fourth Round Melaka would be trying to make upset in The Grand Finale so as to spice up the race to the finishing line, with also teams such as Wolverinez Sinar FM, Armada, MBPJ, Killerbeez dan Ballbusterz.

In Division 2, Team NoMercy from Johor has consolidated their position at the peak of the table by becoming the Round Champion for the second successive time in Melaka, in their quest to win the Overall Champion Prizes worth of RM12,000.00. Team Nomercy is comfortably leading the Overall Table with 192 points, leaving behind another team from Johor at the second place, Team Johor Pirates 19 points behind. Their success in Melaka is their fourth consecutive podium finish throughout 2009, which is also the fourth edition of the MY-NPL since its inception back in 2006. The amazing record is also shared by teams Nemesis Legion (Division 1) and Team Roughnecks (Divison 3). For sure, other teams like Warrior, Oscar Legio-X dan CMX would like to spoil the party in The Grand Finale by claiming the round podium finishers that will take home prizes worth RM12,000.00.

In Division 3, Team Raptor has stepped up their acceleration gear towards the finishing line by becoming the Round Champion in Melaka, which is also their second consecutive round champion in MY-NPL 2009. The win has enabled Team Raptor to close the gap on the overall table to 8 points with the leader of the pack, Team Roughnecks from Johor, in their quest for the overall champion prizes worth of RM9,000.00. Another team from Johor, Team OSB Pirates is at the third place with 141 points and Team CMX Buccaneers, which is sliding down the table after another dismal performance in Melaka is at the fourth place with 126 points.

Note: Being an event right after the long holidays at also so close to two other big events (MY-NPL Finale and WCA), we can see that teams participating were at all time low! Great format and event, but participation is very poor. Perhaps, next year this will be 'spaced' out evenly between other bigger events.

Star Shooters

Star shooters By SHARMILA NAIR

PAINTBALL is not just a game about eliminating your opponents by spattering them with paint pellets. There’s more to the challenging game than just aiming, shooting and getting down right messy.

Paintball requires strategy, determination, agility and most importantly teamwork. If you get the formula right, the game will take you far.

Shamsher Opherden and Greg Tee stand testament to that. The avid paintballers have been playing the game for a very long time and even had the opportunity to represent Malaysia in an international championship last month.

These members of the paintball club Macdev Ronin were first runners-up at the World Cup Asia (WCA), which automatically qualified them to participate in the Millennium Cup paintball championship in Paris, France.

“We’re the first Malaysian team to have actually played in the WCA finals, and when we knew that we made it to the Millennium Cup, it was simply amazing,” says Shamsher, 21.

The 10-member team played alongside some of the world’s greatest paintballers, and they didn’t let their lack of experience or the novelty of competing in an international arena get in the way of their game plan.


Greg Tee (left) and Shamsher Opherden are avid paintballers. Their team represented Malaysia at the recent Millennium Cup in Paris, France.

“It was our first time going against some of the very people we’ve actually read about. The experience was definitely a dream come true for most, if not all, of us,” says Greg.

They also learned a lot by watching the international players who played the game somewhat differently from what these boys are used to.

“Their game play is more on the aggressive side whereas Malaysian paintballers prefer to play on the defensive side,” adds Greg.

The 17-year-old Hotel Management student has been playing the game for almost four years, and has been a member of Macdev Ronin in the last two.

Another aspect that they found different in France was the crowd. More people come to support paintballers than they do at home, says Shamsher.

“People over there are used to paintball, so the game is nothing new to them. You can see many fans coming over just to watch the game and support the players. It’s not the same here.”

Nevertheless, the boys don’t let the lack of crowd support deter them from doing their best in any competition, especially during the local season league.

The Macdev Ronin also plays in the National Paintball League, which has about 50 local teams competing for the championship trophy.

“We keep ourselves busy by participating in various paintball leagues. It keeps the team alert and ready all the time,” says Greg.

The Macdev Ronin usually trains at Padang Astaka in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, every Sunday, playing paintball for at least four hours each time.


*The Macdev Ronin team during one of their games.

There’s a lot of physical training involved and the paintballers keep fit by jogging, doing push-ups and more.

“We also practise our sliding, diving and snapshooting motions. These are all part of the paintball techinques that helps us move faster without getting hit,” says Shamsher.

The players ensure that they’re fitted with proper paintball gear, such as protective masks, jersey and pants before they start training.

“We all have our own markers (paintball guns), and our own gears. We can’t play if we don’t have on a complete set of ‘uniform’,” says Greg.

A marker is priced between RM800 and RM6,500, whereas a mask can cost up to RM400. Though the gear may seem a little expensive, they are considered as investments by players who see themselves playing the game for a long time.

“Paintball is a game that doesn’t just use your body but your mind as well. It’s a game that requires quick thinking and moves.” When they are on the ‘battlefield’, the one thing that keeps them going is the adrenaline rush. Shamsher says that once you get addicted to the high from playing paintball, you’ll keep going back for more.

The camaraderie and friendship they form on the ground is also something that keeps the players going. They have to communicate and be on the lookout for one another at all times.

Greg also says that there’s a lot of yelling involved in paintball, as that’s the only way that the players can communicate with each other while playing the game.

“We need to be co-ordinated at all times. That’s one way to ensure that we don’t get eliminated quickly,” he says.

A player who gets hit with the paint pellet (usually made of a gelatin shell filled with food colouring and vegetable oil), is out from the game, and the team that eliminates all of its opponents is considered the winner.

“You cannot get shot at any part of your body, or even your equipment. You’ll be considered out of the game. And if a player stays on in the game even after getting hit, they’ll be penalised,” says Greg.

This is where teamwork comes in as each player looks out for one another. But at the same time, there are moments when the team members get angry with one another over a move or decision.

“We do have our arguments but nothing has gone past verbal. There’s a rule against cursing and if a player gets into a fit and throws the marker on the ground, they’ll be banned from playing the game for a year,” says Shamsher.

That is a huge penalty that none of the players want to pay, so they make sure that they keep their cool (and that their team members do too) during the games.

The next big championship that the boys are looking forward to is the WCA which will be held in November.

“We hope to get into the WCA finals again, which means that we’ll qualify for the Millennium Cup next year. Then, we can really do better than we did this year,” says Greg.

KENYATAAN MEDIA

Kejohanan Liga Paintball Kebangsaan Malaysia (MY-NPL) 2009 Pusingan Keempat telah diadakan di Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall, Banda Hilir, Bandaraya Melaka Bersejarah pada 1 dan2 Ogos 2009 yang lalu. Ini merupakan tahun keempat berturut-turut Bandaraya Melaka Bersejarah telah dipilih sebagai venue dalam kalendar kejohanan MY-NPL.

Sebanyak 68 pasukan telah bertanding yang terdiri daripada 8 pasukan Divisyen 1, 7 pasukan Divisyen 2, 22 pasukan Divisyen 3 dan 31 pasukan Divisyen 4. Kejohanan dimulai dengan perlawanan-perlawanan Pusisngan Awal untuk Divisyen 2 dan 3 pada sebelah pagi hari pertama, Sabtu, 1 Ogos 2009 sementara pasukan-pasukan Divisyen 1 dan 4 memulakan persaingan di sebelah petang. Hari Kedua kejohanan diteruskan dengan persaingan dalam peringkat suku akhir, separuh akhir dan akhir, Bagaimanapun permulaan hari pertama tergendala hampir 1 jam disebabkan hujan telah turun dengan lebatnya tetapi tidak mematahkan semangat para pemain dalam perebutan hadiah-hadiah pusingan bernilai hampir RM50,000.00.

Persaingan dalam Divisyen 2 pada hari pertama telah dikuasai pendahulu terkini mata keseluruhan MY-NPL 2009 yang juga Juara Pusingan Ketiga di Kuantan yang lepas iaitu Pasukan NOMERCY dari Negeri Johor. Mereka diiringi oleh pasukan-pasukan CMX, WARRIOR dan JOHOR PIRATES mara ke peringkat separuh akhir. Bagaimanapun harapan untuk melihat 2 buah pasukan dari selatan tanahair di peringkat tidak kesampaian apabila NOMERCY diketemukan dengan JOHOR PIRATES di peringkat separuh akhir sementara CMX menentang WARRIOR. Ternyata NOMERCY menerus kecemerlangan di peringkat kalah mati ini dengan muncul sebagai Juara untuk terus memantapkan kedudukan mereka di tangga teratas dalam pungutan mata keseluruhan Divisyen 2, dengan meninggalkan Pasukan JOHOR PIRATES 19 mata di tempat kedua. NOMERCY membawa pulang hadiah bernilai RM5,000.00 serta medal selaku juara dan sudah pasti memantapkan kedudukan untuk meraih hadiah bernilai RM12,000 selaku Juara Keseluruhan kelak.

Di dalam Divisyen 2, sebanyak 22 buah pasukan telah bertanding termasuk pasukan-pasukan dari Perlis, Kedah, Terengganu selain daripada dari Lembah Kelang dan selatan tanahair. Bagaiamanapun persaingan dicemari dengan insiden 2 buah pasukan dari Lembah Kelang yang telah disingkirkan dari kejohanan akibat perlakuan mengatur perlawanan, yang mana merupakan pertama kali berlaku dalam sejarah MY-NPL. Juara Pusingan Ketiga Kuantan, RAPTOR ternyata meneruskan tradisi rentak permainan mantap mereka dengan menguasai saingan di hari pertama dengan memenangi kesemua perlawanan peringkat awal mereka. Pasukan dari Perlis, UNIVERSITI MALAYSIA PERLIS (UNIMAP) telah membuat kejutan dengan menyaingi rapat di tempat kedua diikuti oleh 2 buah pasukan dari Negeri Johor, pendahulu mata pungutan keseluruhan terkini Divisyen 3 ROUGHNECKS dan OSB PIRATES di tempat ketiga dan keempat. Kedudukan keempat-empat pasukan di peringkat awal ini adalah juga merupakan kedudukan mereka di akhir hari kedua. RAPTOR terus mempertahankan kejuaraan Divisyen 3 mereka dan seterusnya memberikan saingan rapat kepada ROUGHNECKS dalam persaingan Juara Keseluruhan Divisyen 3 dengan mengumpul sebanyak 168 mata, mengurangkan jurang dengan ROUGHNECKS di tempat pertama kepada 8 mata sahaja. Ini sudah pasti akan menyemarakkan Pusingan Kelima “The Grand Finale” kelak dalam perebutan takhta Juara Malaysia Divisyen 3. RAPTOR membawa pulang hadiah bernilai RM4,000.00 serta medal.

Sebanyak 8 buah pasukan bertanding dalam Divisyen 1, diketuai Juara Pusingan Ketiga di Kuantan, DELTAROVERS serta Juara Keseluruhan 2008 NEMESIS LEGION. Bagaimanapun, setelah semua pasukan menamatkan saingan 8 perlawanan dalam Pusingan Awal, KILLERBEEZ telah membuat kejutan dengan mengungguli pungutan mata dan menjadi pasukan pilihan pertama dalam peringkat sukuakhir yang berlangsung pada Hari Ahad, 2 Ogos 2009, meninggalkan pasukan pilihan NEMESIS LEGION dan DELTAROVERS masing-masing di tangga kedua dan ketiga. Hari Kedua kejohanan ternyata memberikan lebih banyak lagi kejutan, dimana KILLERBEEZ telah tersingkir di peringkat suku akhir tewas di tangan BALLBUSTERZ, yang merupakan kejayaan pertama BALLBUSTERZ sepanjang 2009 ini di kedudukan podium. Pertemuan RAZ LEGIONdan DELTAROVERS di peringkat sukuakhir juga merupakan ulangan perlawan akhir di Kuantan pada bulan Jun yang lepas, tetapi kali ini di Melaka RAZ LEGION ternyata lebih mantap untuk menguasai pentas pertarungan. Di akhir hari kedua, NEMESIS LEGION telah muncul juara dengan menyingkirkan saingan RAZ LEGION di perlawanan akhir. Kejayaan NEMESIS LEGION ini serta ditambah dengan kegagalan di peringkat suku akhir DELTAROVERS telah melonjakkan kedudukan mereka di dalam pungutan mata keseluruhan Divisyen 1 ke kedudukan teratas dengan kelebihan 6 mata dan sudah pastinya Pusingan Kelima November ini akan bertambah hebat. NEMESIS LEGIO N membawa pulang hadiah bernilai RM9,000.00 selaku juara dan sudah Hadiah Juara Keluruhan Divisyen 1 2009 bernilai RM15,000.00 akan menjadi rebutan mereka pada bulan November kelak.

Di dalam Divisyen 4, 31 buah pasukan telah bertanding termasuk 2 buah pasukan dari Negara Singapura, KARMA dan SEEKERS INC. Di dalam persaingan hari Pertama, Pusingan Awal, YING YANG naib juara Pusingan Ketiga Kuantan, telah mengetuai 16 buah pasukan ke saingan Peringkat Suku Akhir di hari kedua. Bagaiamanapun kejayaan JERUNG, pasukan tempatan dari Pejabat YAB Ketua Menteri Melaka, layak ke peringkat suku akhir di tempat ke 13 telah mencuri tumpuan, yang membuktikan kewujudan bakat-bakat sukan ini yang agak menarik di Negeri Melaka. Bagaimanapun SHOOT IN RAGE dari negeri Johor, yang meduduki tempat ketiga di Pusingan Kedua dan Ketiga yang lepas telah memperlihatkan peningkatan mereka dengan muncul sebagai juara untuk membawa pulang hadiah RM1,00.00 serta medal, mengecewakan pasukan dari Negara Singapura KARMA di dalam perlawanan akhir. YING YANG, naib juara Pusingan Ketiga Kuantan terpaksa berpuashati sekadar di tempat ketiga dan sebuah lagi pasukan dari Negeri Johor, JACKALS di tempat keempat.

Pusingan Kelima MY-NPL 2009 akan diadakan pada 7 & 8 November 2009 di Akademi paintball Malaysia (MAPAAC), Kompleks Sukan Astaka, Jalan Utara, Petaling Jaya. Pendaftaran dibuka bermula dari sekarang.

Results were in furiously last night and I didn't get update anything on it since I wasn't near a computer with a decent internet speed.

Basically, each country send their 'National Team' and compete with others in this first-time ever Paintball in the World Games, in hoping to get it into the main event.

The final results are as follows:

1 - Germany (Ramstein Instict)
2 - Australia (SWAT)
3 - Iran (Datis)
4 - Japan (Ku)
? - Malaysia? (any idea what our boys placing is?)

My Adventure - Millennium Series, Paris - Day 3

Day 3


After a much needed rest the night before, we all woke up to the prospect of playing on Sunday - if we beat our opponents in the quaterfinals for both ICC and Millennium Cup. We were scheduled to play London Nexus (CPL) for our final Millennium Cup preliminary game and later on, our quaterfinals group B in the ICC.





Our game against London Nexus was around 8.30am and we're pretty much pumped out. It's always good to play higher ranking teams, especially CPL teams. You have so many things to learn. And this is definitely not an embarassment considering how low our standards are in Malaysia. It's an opportunity to learn, do it well and gain as much experience as we can get.

This time around, we were much prepared. Games started with heavy laning, sweet spotting and alot of 50 snake runs. We traded alot of bodies with Nexus. We were playing our hearts out and at the same time, we kept our awareness on might-be-hit shots - to stop getting silly penalties. Nexus snakeman, Jason Wheeler made the most damage from snake side and we lost the match 0-4.

What a beating, but what an experience! Andy finally reunited with his old buddy Jamie Abbot, who later gave him his jersey on Sunday after the game againts Chilli Peppers.


And so after finishing last in our Group E, we were out of the Millennium Cup and into the Millennium Shield pool. Next game at midday was against Marseille Icon, for our ICC quaterfinals game. Icon topped Group L and was one of the favourites to go into the top 4.


Later in the evening, we will play against Vision Klub. So we took the time to walk around the tournament venue and made some purchases from some of the vendors. Among us, we bought easily 3-4 pbfashion's headwraps!


While we still had time, we helped pitting for Stockholm Ignition when they were up against Mallorca Madness. The Swedes were there during our previous games to help out, so it's our turn now. It was an eye opening experience to see how they handled their games from the staging area point of view. Paint, water, clean pods, wiping cloths - all were managed very carefully. Ignition lost 3-4 to the Spaniards and were relegated to play Millennium Shield later on.



By midday, it was our ICC game against Marseille Icon (CPL) at the CPL field. We had help from both Ignition and Consilium Dei at our staging area. Extra pods, more paint, extra gun, extra hands, extra spotter & coach. The whole entourage! It felt really good not to have worry about other stuffs and you can really focus on your game play.

This time around, we made the same mistakes again. We got ourselves penalties each and every game and it's hard to get back into the game, especially against Icon. You have to stay clean of penalties to at least stand a chance of getting any points from them, and in fact any other teams. Icon made really light work of us and stomped to a 4-0 win. That was our final game for ICC and the end of it.

We also heard that Bullets simply didn't showed up for their quaterfinals game and gave away a walkover. Lucky break for Demonz Red. They went on the semis and got smashed by Joy and still ended up on the podium.



By 5pm we were already preparing our quarterfinals game against Vision Klub (D2) at JT field. Vision has a CPL team called Vision PPC Grenoble, so we already know we're into a very tough match. We welcomed back Walter Troost back into our roster and were looking forward for a win.

At the buzzer, we started evenly. Gs on the break and alot of holding our lanes and zones. We lost the first game and came back to tie 1-1 on the second game. Vision Klub then stepped up their game and won two straight points and took the lead 1-3. By this time, we made some drastic changes and went for more aggressive approach. The plan worked as we grabbed two straight points to tie the match 3-3.

On the decisive game, a delay in referee calling a few Vision player out were the keys to our downfall. We lost in a very tight game. We made some in field protest, but decisions were final. Vision Klub goes through. Our dream had end.





It was fun while it lasted.
