MY-NPL'09 Event 5 - Grand Finale


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. Teams D’Halloween dan Shimigami-X, which is in the fifth and sixth placing respectively, would definitely want to redeem some pride in the last round, to be among the podium finishers.

In Division 4, the fourth round Melaka Champion, another team from Johor, Team Shoot InRage will be out defending the title in The Grand Finale. They would receive a stiff resistance from the recent champion and runners-up of Division 4 of the Malaysian Super Lite 2009 (MSL 2009), Team JS from Melaka and Team Yin Yang respectively. Team Karma from Singapore, the runners-up of Round 4 Melaka will also be there to continue their winning streak in MY-NPL 2009. The seasoned campaigners like Team Jackals, Infidelz, BPMB Espada and X-O-Dust will definitely be out to taste the sweet success in Division 4.

Note: Been busy like mad with long holidays in between that I've neglected Villain. It's already too late to post up the registration and tournament details of this final leg, so I just put up this piece by the tournament director, En Sofian.

Good luck to teams that are participating in this leg and I hope to drop by to the tournament grounds later.

Paintball season of 2009 here in Malaysia is coming to an exciting climax and to top it up, the best tournament in the region - the World Cup Asia 2009 as the last even of the year! Worth going!
