◘ WORLD CUP 2020 Event and New Product Discussion ◘

DYNASTY WINS!


Discuss your picks for the event to win, the games, the new products!

Day One Summary:

Day One of the NXL World Cup saw a few surprises in the Pro Division, as well as some top teams struggling early. Red Legion, Infamous and Dynasty looked all but unbeatable in their first matches and Tampa Bay Damage went 2-0 with beat down style wins as they honored TM40. We also saw new comer to the Pro Division, the Wild Dogs earn a match victory in their first pro game they played in which they looked aggressive and hungry to prove themselves. Other teams who won their match/matches for the day included Xfactor, AC Dallas, AC Diesel, and Houston Heat, after they had a slow start against Revo.

One of the best matches of the day had to be Thunder vs TMG which went to an 8-7 decision in favor of Thunder and the entire match was a back and forth slugfest. Thunder dropped their second match against XFactor, but they sit a 1-1 on the day and can still be a Sunday team.

There were a few surprises on the day as well, 2020 Las Vegas Winners, the Ironmen, had a very rough start, losing their match 1-6 to AC Diesel, where they were beat solidly, lets hope they can come together and recapture that Vegas magic.

Another surprise came from Impact, although their roster was limited due to COVID, it is still loaded with top level talent; they were beat down by Infamous 8-2 and never had a chance. Even in their second match against NRG Elite they looked like a much different Impact team than we are used to, and didn't reflect the 8-2 score they posted for the win. In their bracket, that single loss may be enough to knock them from the tournament with a burning hot Tampa Bay Damage, and aggressive Infamous team ahead of them in the bracket.

Columbus LVL has also looked very competitive, and are currently sitting at 1-1 after Day one, posting a good win against Aftermath, and playing well against one of the best teams in the league, AC Dallas.

MLKings, TMG Outlaws, DMG, and NRG all went winless on the day, with a few rough matches between them, including a 7-1 beatdown win by Revo over TMG, and an 0-6 defeat by Damage over NRG Elite.

NYX also dropped their only game on the day against a dominate looking Red Legion team where NYX didnt put up a single point. Lets hope on Day two this fan favorite team comes out swinging.

Day Two Summary:

Day Two of World Cup saw continued dominance come from Dynasty, Legion, Damage, and XFactor. A big suprise from the day came from AC Diesel, putting up a strong performance against their sister team, AC Dallas, in which they took a lead early and never gave it up. Revo also looked really good again with a mercy rule win against Thunder. That team looks really good when their breakshot is on. Impact and Ironmen also had a good Day 2 recovery and they both put up solid wins in brackets where every single point is going to matter.

TMG Outlaws, Aftermath, and MLKings are continuing to struggle this event and at this point are not even putting up quality games against their opponents. Speaking of struggling, NYX took another brutal beatdown after picking themselves to beat Dynasty prior to the match. Harris looked bad, drawing multiple penalties and generally dying early every single point, it may benefit them to get a few looks without him on the field. He then blamed the refs for his callous disregard for getting hit during games. NRG and DMG, although both likely knocked out of the event, had one of the better games of the day, which was a back and forth battle the entire game. Lackey for NRG looks really good, and is the best player on that team, just like Joe Barrett continues to be for DMG. That team is a few small mistakes away from being a legitimate contender, and a dominate win on Day 3 could earn them a chance to squeak into Sunday.

LVL continues to be really competitive in all of their games. Although they are 0-3, they have been playing well and are legitimately competitive, Politi looks really good for them and they really play as a team, and they will be scary next season. Another pleasant surprise has been the Wild Dogs, and the fans have loved them all weekend. They play and ultra aggressive style, their games have all been competitive, and for playing teams like Dynasty, and Legion, that is saying something. They gave Legion an early scare putting them down 2-0 early. They shoot well off break, and all 5 of the starters are insanely athletic, they just crumble until pressure, and RL took advantage of that making huge counterpunch moves down the D side.

Day Three Summary:

Day Three of Cup saw the trends that developed over the first two days continue with a few surprises. The games continue to either be won quickly through the snake, or it becomes a war of attrition on the dorito side on the slow points. It seems whatever team has that final body in the snake tends to win these. The best matches of the weekend occured late in the day on Saturday, with Ironmen vs. a burning hot AC Dallas, angry from their loss to their sister team Diesel on day two. AC went up early and the Ironmen mounted an incredible comeback. If it was not for Nick Slowiaks gun off the break, they would have never had a chance, he consistently shot bodies off the break and helped get Payton Tabada into the snake and his veteran presence is the sole reason the Ironmen are in the Sunday club. Best part is, we get an early rematch of this game in Semi Finals, and the game looks to be like it will be a slugfest again, with Matt Jackson fuming about the loss.

Damage and Impact both looked great again as well, they went head to head in one of the last matches of the day. Damage went up very early and held a 3 point lead at one point, but Impact refused to quit. We finally saw Baines utilize ARod like he has played in the past, and he just absolutley feasted in the center for multiple points in a row, pushing Impact to the overtime victory against Damage. Damage finally seemed to have a small ***** in their armor, with Impact finding out getting guns wide early and trapping them in the pocket was worth the risk.

Revo went on a tear, defeating Thunder on a mercy rule 7-1, and then brought a huge surprise with a victory against XFactor in a great game 5-4. Revo just consistently played their slow methodical game, even when Billy and Meter were on top of them in the 50 snake. Stephen Omara again showed why he is one of the best players in the game, his slow play style has been huge on this layout, he can win gunfights against anyone, and his survivability has benefitted from this layout being a war of attrition in the snake. Henry Sentz has had a big gun as well off the break and the combo of him and Omara is a tough one to confront.

Dark Horse team Infamous decided they would rather play margin than points and threw away their final match against NRG to be knocked out of the event after the 4-6 loss. They completely abandoned their Day one strategy and Thomas Taylor finally started to make mistakes, he continued to try and force his presence in the 50 snake, often losing gun fights and drawing two penalties. They really need to find a legitmate 1 in the snake to compete going forward. Thomas is one of the best 2's in the game, he needs a young missile in front of him on that side.

NYX got embarrassed again by MLKings after Harris made big promises on Day Two about how they would crush everyone left on the schedule. Harris just looks bad for this team, he drew 8-9 penalties this weekend, and everytime he would get shot trying to make one spot, he would switch himself elsewhere. At one point, Lauren Kelly reported the team was upset with him because he was actively going against gameplans, trying to be a superstar, guess he didnt get the memo.


Day Four/Sunday Summary:

The finals day contained a great line of matchups and it all lead up to a wild finals finish that saw Dynasty capped as the World Cup 2020 Champions in a back and forth match against San Antonio XFactor. Dynasty went up 3-0 early in the match and looked unbeatable, but XFactor mounted a comeback on the gun of Raney Stanczak and any point that Dynasty couldnt shoot Billy Bernacchia off the break, they were consistently losing. This lead to a 5-5 match at the end of regulation and the game went to overtime. Things werent looking good early for Dynasty as they dropped a few bodies and got put into a 3v4 situation with only Ryan, Tyler Harmon, and Marcello left in very poor position. Billy was at the 50 snake for XFactor and the match looked all but over, but Ryan Greenspan made a clear out move to get Raney off the field, leaving it in a 2v3 with Dynasty's two best gunfighters. Marcello made an incredible shot on Billy in the 50 snake just after Tyler shot out a player off the Dside, then they pinched out the final player in the corner for XFactor and were crowned champions.

The angles they have for the webcast are terrible. I'm chalking it up to bad weather today but really hope they have more for the rest of the weekend. Seems like all they have are a camera in each snake side corner.

Edit - Seems to have gotten the camera up/working looking at the 50 snake.

For sure I agree, weather has to be a factor though for camera maintenance

I'll be F5'ing all day! Can't wait to see the new product! I have to think with Covid19 affecting so many manufacturing that maybe there won't be a ton of new products or at least very limited runs of them?

They guy who owns my local field claims his GI sales rep told him they're releasing 4 new guns this week. I'll believe it when I see it.

I really hope that Dynasty special edition is way more than one of the Fraige edition so I don't make the poor financial decision to order one.

I can actually see that jersey making some money down the road as a big collector, especially if you get it signed by the big Dynasty names.

1 of 20 for the marker too so that may hold its value for collectors too. If I knew this was coming out I wouldve bought one. I literally just bought a Gloss Gold/Black Force two weeks ago...

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.
