In a close semi-final battle Dye factory team Tampa Bay Damage slugs it out with Planet Eclipse factory team Edmonton Impact to see who would move into the finals at the PSP Chicago Open. Zach Yachimec and the rest of the boys from Edmonton Impact hadnít won an event since early 2010 went up against an underperforming Tampa Bay Damage that was looking to prove they are true contenders.
We just launched another one of Sina's amazing videos. Watch the Red Legion in Chicago now.
Why we support this team: "We admire the Russian Legion's commitment to paintball and their style of play. They were the first team to really perfect the breakout and would consistently run and gun games to victory within the opening seconds. It took the rest of the industry years to adopt and mimic their dominating style of play. Dynasty is the only other team that comes to mind who have made the same kind of generational impact, and they probably get more credit because the Russians are so mysterious. Watching them play, the Russian Legion style and form is beautiful, it's like watching ballet with guns on the paintball field." Chris Williams
The computer monitors how the gun is shooting and makes adjustments to the settings on the fly; this ensures the gun is shooting the best it can at every shot. The Zealots multi-sensing system and computer calculate the bolts speed and cycle times, and dual transducers monitor the pressures within the gun, watching the low pressure that moves the bolt and the firing pressure that shoots the ball. The computer uses this data to adjust the settings in real time...
Growing up as a kid I always looked up to those in the paintball industry who were shown as the stars of the sport. The ones who went out and put in work day in and day out. The ones who went into the arena and came out with the battle scars to prove it. The ones who, despite setbacks, overcame adversity to be major players in the sport of paintball. But what about the ones who also went through all of this yet were never in the spotlight?
Combining the lightweight of carbon fiber and the reliability of aluminum alloy, the new AZ Carbon barrel is now a superb composition of the two elements as one. The aluminum core provides smooth and harden surface to fix our customersí craving for the shots consistency, as well as the worry free of internal surface damage while cleaning with swabs. The re-engineered barrel porting sequence provides lower shot-spread and quieter sound signature.
Who else wishes they'd started playing paintball at a younger age? So what are you doing to support the younger players that are coming out to the field?
The AXBL felt there was a void missing from organized tournament paintball. In 2014 the AXBL decided to offer a place for 10 to 15 year olds to play in a division just for them. The requirements are simple, players must be 10 to 15 years old the day of the event they are signed up to play.

Apparently Justin Bieber played paintball last week at one of Gio's fields and it made me wonder just how many PbNation people have played paintball with a celebrity of any sort?
