Have the desire to win? Have the dedication to see it through? Underground wants you!


WWW.CHICAGOUNDERGROUND.ORG


THIS IS WHO WE ARE

A new team, formed at the end of 2010 from the core of the 3rd ranked UWL Open 2010 squad. Although we are a new team by definition, we have been in the game for a long, long time and have racked up over a hundred years of experience between our 13 members. The experience we possess is over all forms of paintball, and we pride ourselves in not sticking to one particular "type" of play. Paintball is paintball and we strive to be our best no matter what type of field we're playing on, and we work towards accomplishing that.





O'Hare Paintball Spring 11' 5 Man // 2nd Place____Fox Paintball's Turkeyball 2010 // 1st Place
2011 Splatterzone Young Guns- 3rd place in series

THIS IS WHAT WE STRIVE FOR

■A common vision
■Clear and definite goals which go hand-in-hand with this vision
■Members who share their understanding of strategy and tactics
■Great inner discipline (meaning they act professionally together)
■Players with characteristics which complement each other
■A good division of roles among the players, with all members treated equally
■Players who put the common good before their own interests
■Players who take responsibility for the whole team, with everyone accepting mistakes as long as people do their best.
■Our team is united in trying to reach its goals for performance
■We all take responsibility for any loss or poor performance
■If a team member has a problem, everyone wants to help him
■Our team members communicate freely about each player’s responsibilities



LEVEL OF EXPERIENCE DOES NOT MATTER WITH US, AS WE HAVE THE BACKGROUND AND TALENT TO COACH PLAYERS FROM THE GROUND UP. ALL WE NEED IS THE COMMITMENT.

IF THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOU, OR SOMETHING THAT YOU'D LIKE TO BE A PART OF, THEN WE'RE THE TEAM FOR YOU. PM ME (DBShellshocked) OR Warchild71 WITH MORE INFO ABOUT YOURSELF.... AND REMEMBER, DEDICATED PLAYERS ONLY!!!


WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE FOLLOWING PLAYERS FOR THE 2012 SEASON, AS WELL AS THE REMAINDER OF THIS SEASON:

YOUNG GUNS
PUMP PLAYERS FOR 2012 PUMP LINE
D5
D4
D3
as well as anyone ranked above d3 interested in playing against some of the best pro's in the world in the UWL

Ashes of the Heretics? Come on Derek, I know you didn't mean anything by it, but saying ashes of the Heretics makes it sound like we're not around anymore. Nothing has changed here, just lost a few good men. You guys going to make it to Chicago UWL this year?

LOL bad word for an analogy. My bad. How about, "spawning from," or "born from," are either of those ok for our recruitment thread? Or I could be grammatically bland and choose a word like originating?


And yes were def. going to be at uwl chi. Were just not sure if were going open, tactical, or both yet

Haha, pretty much anything that doesn't make it sound like we're dead would be fine. We're doing Tac for the last time at Chicago, then back to Open. The new guys will have enough experience by then to hold thier own in Open.

It depends on how well we gel as a team. If things are going great and everyone is gelling together really well then we will make a full run at either PSP or NPPL. If we still are working out kinks and getting players up to the technical level we need to be at to win then we'll probably stick with a regional series that offers something like a world cup trip as a series prize (something like mppl or that) and move up from there. The main thing is committment.

Ideally, we're looking at setting up the following teams:

Pump Line for 3/5 man pump events
Young Guns for YG series next season
A d5/d4 line
A d3/d2 line
A UWL line comprised of players from the above

the young guns will feed into the d4 line, and the d4 line will feed into the d3/2 line.

at least 1-2 practices per month, depending on our event schedule. It also depends how bad you have the pb bug too. We have great sponsors so it's kind of hard to stay off the field.

Can't believe how much of a response we're getting guys... A LOT of talented, veteran players are lurking around lets just say that.

I, as well as the rest of Underground are extremely proud that you're considering our team as an option and hope that everyone who's interested follows through and shows the heart, stamina, and dedication to come out with the W's.

If anyone is looking to grind this weekend, I will be out at fox paintball sunday morning 9am-1:30pm. Come out and grind it out with me, lets see what you got!

Thanks for the well wishes! Hopefully we can find a group that clicks out of all these rediculously talented pump players we have floating around in Chicago, so far it's looking really promising. If we do, we'll definitely see more of each other!

I could be down for some pump as well. FYI there is a 3 man and a 5 man later this month near St Louis with the boys from Total Greif, 3EV and quite a few other pump killers. I played the 3 man with Johm and Ash last year and it was a freaking blast. Any interest in getting some lines in on it?
