Art Chaos wins the Challenger Division over upTon 187 cRew (divisional winners too)





The mostly Russian team Art Chaos defeated upTon 187 cRew after a surprisingly even start to take the Challenger's title at the Dallas PSP at Cousin's Paintball.

Even though this is Art Chaos first ever PSP event, they were a favorite coming into this event and a favorite to be a contender all season in the Champion's Division. However, they first had to earn their spot by battling through the Challenger's Division, which they did in record time with an amazingly low 7 points scored against them for the whole event.

187 put up the first two points starting Art Chaos and the fans. Art Chaos scored the next point and then ground out the longest point of the day to tie it up. Art Chaos scored a fast point to then take the lead, but then lost 3 players in the first couple seconds of the next point. However, AC's two players battled back and won a 2 on 5 to go two points ahead. To make matters worse, 187 started the next point down a player due to a major. AC made fast work of the power play and went up 5 to 2. With only 4 players, 187 made an aggressive breakout up the center and chewed up AC's entire dorito side to take the next point. Art Chaos took the next point quickly as 187 earned yet another major penalty to make it 6 to 3. 187 had to start the final point with only 3 players. Art Chaos made short work of them and took the win.

We'll see both 187 and Art Chaos promoted to the Champion's Division for the next PSP event. To make the finals, Art Chaos lost their first point to XSV and then went on a 7 point unanswered streak to earn their spot. 187 beat out VCK in a penalty filled game to earn their finals spot.

AC Dallas won over the Trade My Gun Outlaws in a game dominated by off the break shooting from both sides. AC suffered from having to start multiple points down bodies due to penalties but still managed to pull off the win 5 to 4.

Chicago Warped narrowly lost to Houston Zone. Project Mayhem defeated Louisville Asylum in D2.

Thanks to Aztek Photos for the Art Chaos team photo. Thanks to Gary Baum at Paintball Photography for the homepage photo.

I'd have to say that the Challengers Division was merely a formality. Everyone expects big things from AC this year.

Yeah, but I am glad they didn't show favoritism and bump a team out of Champions that had earned it. I think it was a the only fair way to do it, no matter how good the team is on paper. They made Art Chaos play in the lower division and they earned their Champion's spot. That's how it should be.

Absolutely. I missed the webcast though, who is getting bumped to the challengers division?

Art Chaos was on fire and earned their spot in the Champion's Divisions. I especially loved how they laid the smack down on Red Legion

AC is just RL when they were in their prime. I like both teams and I think AC is going to bring back the powerful Russian presence that RL originally brought to the PSP.

Sucks for RL to lose ALL their stars. Cant wait to see what AC pulls out in the Challengers division. Some of my favorite players

What I really loved and respected was the humble way they acted. Even konstin wanted there newer guys to go out there and get experience, never once did he downplay the fact that they were in challengers.

This.

Sucks though, I've been a Russian Legion fan since 2006. Now Kiril is the only OG player left and all the others are now on AC. Watching them play each other was hard to root for.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
