ICON

Paintball is a funny game. I’ve been playing since 1986 and there has been many a time when I thought I was the best at what I did; I thought my team had trained harder and better than every team out there. Confidence was high, until…… It all went wrong.

It’s never as easy in reality as it is in your mind or on paper. Many a favourite has fallen at the very first hurdle. But your true character manifests after these falls in how you behave and react. Going back to the drawing board over and over again gets harder and harder, but something drives us forward. Why do we do it? Because we all love the taste of victory, we all want to be the best and we all want the respect of our peers.

When Team Icon, an Emortal Army squad, did everything they needed to do and still came up short at the 2009 Campaign Cup, they could have blamed the ref’s, the field, the guns, the paint, the alignment of the Planets, anything…. But they didn’t. They sent me this video as an apology.

This video shows me that this team, as a whole, are pure class.

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe

Randy Couture Xtreme.

Exhibition MMA Fights, Paintball Highlights At Mesquite Fundraiser.


Mesquite, Nevada - Every day, United States military personnel face a new battle as they return home from combat zones.

Addressing the desperate need to relieve the financial and emotional burdens caused by the physical and mental scars of war, Mixed Martial Arts legend Randy "The Natural" Couture created the Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation. With a mission focused on raising money and awareness, the foundation's goal is to help these brave men and women fulfill any of their unmet needs as they return back to civilian life.

"Having spent time in a uniform, it became a personal goal of mine to find a way to give back to the brave men and women of our Armed Forces for the sacrifices they make defending our freedoms. The Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation was born out of that desire." Couture explained.

Tapping into his network of current and former MMA fighters, Couture is hosting a weekend fundraiser October 16-18 in Mesquite, Nevada. Xtreme Combat Weekend will include three days of scenario paintball, exhibition MMA fights and "Xtreme" parties.

Participants & donors have the opportunity to play paintball against and alongside nationally recognized fighters including Randy Couture, Ryan Couture, Gray Maynard, Jay Hieron, and John Alessio.

The paintball games will be played exclusively at A Pirates Paradise's new field located 5 miles northeast of Mesquite. Owner Tim Andrus has spent the last two months preparing the 40-acre site for this event.

"The property borders and actually extends over the Virgin River. The thick scrub provides so much cover, we've had to plow roads and paths through the field, " Andrus said. "We're really excited to be the host site for Xtreme Combat Weekend. It's a great cause; Randy is an awesome guy, and we're doing something to help the troops."

A highlight of the weekend will come Saturday evening when up-and-coming fighters take center stage at the CasaBlanca Events center for exhibition MMA fights presented by Tuff-N-Uff. A separate ticketed event; seats will range from $20 for general admission to only $50 for ringside. Like all the weekend's events, proceeds support the Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation.

Post fight, the public can meet up-and-coming fighters and some of their favorite MMA stars at an after fight night club in the CasaBlanca Hotel. A $15 cover charge applies, and this party is limited to persons age 21 and over.

"This weekend really wouldn't be possible without our sponsors," Andrus added. "Special Ops Paintball, Spyder Paintball, Kee Action Sports, Planet Eclipse and Blackjack Paintball have all thrown their support behind us on this event."

Registration and event schedules are available online at the event's website, XtremeCombatWeekend.com.

"We hope everyone will come join us for a great weekend including paintball and amateur fights all in the name of our troops," Couture said.

Campaign Cup Results.....

The UK Millennium Series Leg has now finished, the dust has settled and the winners have been crowned. A great turnout from the UK teams for once which even made a few of the Millennium board smile, which is rare.

Planet Eclipse launched a couple of new products at Campaign Cup. The Eclipse EGO10 the latest and greatest EGO we have ever made… Check out
www.planeteclipse.com for more info, or read below!! We also had the GEO GST Kit installed in a lot of the GEO Shooting players at Campaign Cup. This product has been in test now for a few months and was used to devastating efficiency during the whole event… The GST (Geo Soft Touch) Kit should be shipping this week from Planet HQ in the UK.

Eclipse teams stepped up to the plate across the board with some great results… The Pro division (CPL) saw Eclipse teams taking both 1st and 2nd Place in what can on be described as a ‘Classic’ Final match. SK Moscow Vs Chilli Peppers Riga. In the final race to 5 points Chilli Peppers Riga took a very impressive lead over SK Moscow 4 – Nil. SK were all but done at this point. But the 'Never Say Die' attitude started to pave the way for a mammoth comeback bringing the score back to 4 – 4. The final points came down to a 1 on 1 which after some cat and mouse play, completed SK Moscow’s amazing comeback and Campaign Cup CPL victory. Not bad from a team that won Campaign Cup last season but in the SPL (Semi Pro) Division. Well done to both these teams. And too all of the other Eclipse teams that took podium spots at Campaign Cup:

1st Place CPL .. SK Moscow
2nd Place CPL.. Chilli Peppers Riga
4th Place SPL.. Paris Camp Carnage
2nd Place Div 1 .. Amsterdam Sabotage

2nd Place Div 2 .. Fat Ladies Charms
3rd Place Div 2 .. Dogs D Amour Thessaloniki

Great Results… The Emortal Army Rolls on and on !!

The Eclipse Ego10. This 6th Generation Ego is the start of a new direction for Planet Eclipse and the focus of the engineering behind the marker. For the first time since the inception of the Ego model, the Ego10’s main design brief and focus has been placed on smoothness of shot and even finer resolved paint handling. Every previous Ego has been developed with the express intent of maximizing the cycle speed of the Ego design, speeding up rammer and bolt movement and minimizing pneumatic and electronic delays wherever possible. Whist this has produced arguably the fastest under-and-over poppet paintball marker on the planet, it can equally be argued that the Ego has not been one of the smoothest shooting.

Well that is all about to change. Paintball is changing. No longer is the perfect marker the one that will shoot and cycle the fastest. Today, more than ever, players want and need to be able to shoot the most fragile paint, with the smoothest shot. And this is the direction that the Ego10 will start taking us in.

Using some of the very latest Ultra High Speed Video recording facilities, as well as micron-accurate, 50,000hz sampling speed, laser displacement sensing equipment, the Ego10 has been developed to produce bolt speeds that are more gentle on the fore-stoke so that paint is handled in a much more gentle manner when being loaded, and that opens the poppet valve in a way that helps reduce sound signature, and then returns in a way to help minimize the recoil imparted into the body by the rearward motion of the bolt and rammer and reduce rear-stop rebound.

Yet even though the cycle has been significantly slowed down, due to the unique design of the direct-mounted solenoid, the Ego10 still has extraordinary pneumatic responses that mean no time from switching on the solenoid to the bolt starting to move is wasted. The result: Still 28+bps fire rates, but smoother, quieter, better-handling feel.

With a smoother cycle, come other benefits. Wear and tear are significantly reduced. Bumpers, valves, and all other dynamic components suffer less brutal forces on every cycle hence longevity is added to each of those components.

Mechanically the Ego10 incorporates some of the technology of last seasons SL94. The Zick2, which is an intrinsic part of the pneumatic drive system, is designed to both have a softer initial kick-off on the forward stroke, which helps load the ball more gently and helps minimize bolt-strike breakage of the paintball, but also cushion the system on the return stroke into it’s rear-stop position. Both these attributes are key to helping achieve the fundamental goals of the Ego10.

Sitting above the Zick2 kit there is now a body-cut contoured Cure3+ bolt. The main body of the bolt carries the same upper profiling and cupping as the standard Cure3 bolt, which massively reduces both bolt-strike impact on the ball being fired, but also ensures that the bolts leading upper edge has the least amount of impact possible on the second ball in the stack. Impact fractures from the bolt on the second ball are common place when using force-feed loaders, and the Cure3 ensures those fractures are kept to an absolute minimum. But what is new on the Cure3+ bolt is a new 2-piece design. The new second piece sits inside the main body, is held in place with the bolt pin, and is removable and interchangeable without the need of any tools. The standard Cure3+ found in the Ego10 comes with a ramped insert that gives the air path from the valve to the face of the bolt a nice smooth transition through its 90 degree turn. But the real beauty of the design means that the insert can be quickly and easily removed and replaced for any future upgrades that may be developed for this bolt design.

Up at the front of the Ego10, below the lightened LPR cap, there is now an additional vent in the main body. This little vent hole is further testament of the desire to make the Ego10 the most reliable high-end marker out there. The little hole is nothing more than a vent, but its simplicity is its beauty, in that it makes it impossible for any kind of HP air from the valve chamber to bypass the internal LPR body seals and contaminate the LP air that feeds the Solenoid and Rammer. This added protection for the solenoid further enhances the durability and reliability of the whole marker.

Electronically the Ego10 has also had a complete overhaul. Of course the key features that have kept the Ego at the top of its game, such as Opto and Micro switch trigger actuation, are still there. But the heads-up display, GUI, microprocessor, solenoid drive circuit and expansion socket have all seen some major changes.

The four layer circuit board is home for a 16-bit, 16mips PIC microprocessor, running at 3V and with advanced power saving features. The increased number-crunching power of the processor allows for much more sophisticated control algorithms, leading to a smooth and seamless operation of the marker, and the 64K of internal program memory provides ample space for future firmware expansion.

The solenoid drive circuitry has been optimised with a focus upon the consistent and repeatable operation of the solenoid and multi-level prioritised interrupts within the control firmware ensure that timing fluctuations are virtually non-existent.

Standards have traditionally been a problem within paintball’s manufacturing community and so the Ego10 expansion connector supports UART, SPI and IIC interfaces, providing flexible upgrade capabilities. Planned expansion boards from Eclipse include USB and RF interfaces.

The liquid crystal display module (LCM) has been completely redesigned from scratch. This is not a commercial display, made to fit into a paintball marker but a custom unit

engineered specifically to withstand the rigours of the modern game. The chip-on-glass design is completely sealed against the ingress of paint, water and aggressive lubricants and is further protected by a plastic surround which also serves as a rigid mounting system. Transflective LCD technology means that the display doesn’t wash out in strong sunlight, contrast actually improves in brighter conditions whilst using significantly less power than OLED technology. When light levels are lower, a tru-colour RGB backlight can be configured to the user’s colour of choice via software.

The viewing area of the LCM has been increased by 92% over the previous model, improving the resolution while maintaining dot pitch and the Graphical User Interface (GUI) has been overhauled in order to take advantage of this larger viewing area. Readability has been improved with increased font sizes; Windows pop-up with useful status information; Range bars indicate the adjustability of parameters; Smart Menus reduce clutter by removing parameters when not required. Usability has been improved in a number of subtle, but important ways. It is now possible to scroll through the run screens with a single button press, allowing the user to quickly access all of the available information; The tournament lock can be quickly toggled with the press of an internal pushbutton; All of the user adjustable control parameters have been grouped into a single menu and can be easily viewed regardless of the state of the tournament lock. Along with the instant and peak ROFs the two Rate of Fire screens display historical data in the form of histograms allowing the user to monitor rate of fire consistency and thus analyse the way in which the trigger is being pulled. The Shot Counter screen features an adjustable and selectable Shots Remaining Gauge which allows the user to quickly estimate how much paint they have remaining.

All together, the changes made to the Ego10 have been entirely player-focused. It’s been designed to be easier to shoot, smoother to shoot, more reliable, more consistent, require less day-to-day maintenance, easier to adjust and just generally nicer to live with. What you won’t find different with the new Ego10 is our industry-leading levels of customer support, our commitment to support the players in the locations they use Eclipse products, and our commitment to educating and training technicians and service centres the world over.

Girls Can't Play Paintball..... Can They ?


Planet Eclipse do not tend to do individual/personal sponsorships. At the end of the day this is a team sport we are involved in and that's what we support. But every now and again we show signs of weakness and buckle under the pressure (pressure = plied with alcohol). I was approcahed at the Malaga Millennium Series event this year by Kristine about rocking the Planet gear. Kristine thrusted a beer into my hands (not for the first time over the weekend) and sat me down and we chatted. Kristine is a bit of a celebraty in Norway, being a firey red haired girl playing paintball turns a lot of heads, but when that very same girl is ripping up the field in the highest division that Norway has to offer then she is not just a girl Kristine is someone that might not start off with your respect but she we soon earn it....

So it was a pleasure to get Kristine to sign on the dotted line and become a fully Planet Eclipse sponsored player. As time goes by i will be asking Kristine to be giving us regular updates on the Norway scene. Kristine will also be undertaking a some tech training so she can help people in Norway with any tech problems or questions. I heard a rumour that if you ask her nicely enough she might even let you have a shoot of her new gat !

So here is a little more info about the Red Head from Norway !!!


I introduce to you........................Kristine Myhre Andersen

Ledz: Kristine, stop giving me beer, sit down and answer these questions. Lets start with some background stuff about you. We want when, where and who.

Location: Larvik, a small town near the coast south in Norway

Work: 100 % at Datakjeden (a computer shop with teching and sale of computers and parts) plus I'm bartending in the weekend.

Previous Teams: Amazones from 2002-2003, FLC from 2003-2008 Plus a lot of guest playing for different teams during the years ( I love our sport, it's as easy as that:) )

Current Team: I play in the elite division with Slagen Bandits, besides that I coach the Stockholm Ignition 2 team in the Millennium Series.

Years Playing: 8 years

Ledz: What are your past achievments?

Kristine: It's been some acceptable amount of podium placements during the years I've played, but the ones I remember the most, is playing with: Slagen Bandits 2009 3rd in NPL #3, Sabotage 2008 1st in Gunslingaz Open #2, Antrax 2007 1st in NPL #2, FLC 2006 3rd in Paris Millennium,Reborn 2006 2nd NPL #3, FLC 2005 2nd place CC Millennium and 3rd place in Max Masters Millennium.

Ledz: And what about the future?

Kristine: Win the NPL with Slagen Bandits, and fight our way up the ranks into the Pro division in the Millennium Series.

Ledz: Whats your Best paintball memory:

Kristine: Beating Joy Division in CC 2005 with FLC, and my first Millennium, Campaign Cup 2003. I guest played with the FLC. It was at the Crystal Palace Stadium, and I went around the first day just in awe. It was so big and amazing; beyond anything I've ever seen in paintball. Back in these days we played at 8 (!) different fields. I met so many amazing people from all around the world, a lot of them are my good friends today, and I learned that it doesn't matter if you're pro or novice in paintball, we all share the same love for the sport and that's what keeps us together.

Ledz: So you're a girl playing a man's sport... How's that working out for you?

That works out great:) Nothing's like beating the guys on the field:) It's actually the only sport I know of where the sexes can play against each other and actually be equal. We have different qualities but they are equally important in paintball. Men are stronger and faster, but we are better teamplayers and we do talk a lot, also on the field :)

When I started playing, a lot of the guys thought that it would just be a phase that girls should play side by side with them, but after a year everything changed and even the "doubters" had to accept that they were wrong.

But I don't blame them, because every year I see girls who start in this sport with a seemingly burning passion, but after a while it becomes apparent that they are there more for the boys or the attention of being one of the few girls in this sport. And especially because of this, I'm so glad I've been a part of an all-girl team for several years (FLC). We were able to show consistently over a lot of years that not all girls or girl-teams are like that. We really kicked more than a few really good guy-teams to the ground.:) You can for instance ask Joy Division what happened in CC 2005?

I know that everyone who've been around paintball for a while know exactly what I'm talking about.

There is still someone once in a while who needs me to prove it, prove that a girl belongs in paintball on the field. But it's mostly the teams who are new to the Millennium Series, and have not been around for long.

Nowadays in Scandinavia, and most of Europe, the guys have accepted it, and a lot of them are glad to have a girl on the team since we have different qualities.

Ledz: You used to play on an all girls team (FLC), why have you chose to move on?

Kristine: I've played with the FLC for almost 7 years, and I've had a lot of fun and made a lot of really good friends. When I started with the girls, the team was even stronger than they are now, unfortunately some of the girls have quit the paintball scene (they have been around since 2000 so no one blames them). Some have gotten pregnant; some are trying to have babies or to get married.

So they are not the same team as when I started, and they have had to recruit new girls and start a bit over again. Don't get me wrong, there are still girls on that team who can kick your ass:)

But for my sake, I felt like I still had some years left with even tougher challenges(and I'm not planning to get pregnant any time soon :) ) I wanted to improve as a player, so I decided to join the elite team I've been practicing with, whenever I'm practicing in Norway; SLAGEN BANDITS. It's a great group of guys, consisting of players who started for just a year or two ago and a couple of guys who've been around the paintball scene a while, like Tor Anders from former SPL team Oslo Envy.

The best thing about these guys is that, besides being nice standup guys, they really want to win. And my winners-instinct is highly developed. :)

Ledz: Tell me about the paintball scene in your area.

Kristine: In Norway we have around 50-60 tournament-teams.

There is only one league that really counts - The Norwegian Paintball League (NPL) it has 5 legs during the season (from May to September, before and after that- its snow..) It's played all around the country, it depends on how good the fields and organizers who apply are.

The judges are the same throughout the whole season to give the players consistent reffing.

There is also a Norwegian Championship and a couple of small local tournaments around the country.

The NPL is played over 2 days in 4 divisions (Elite, div1,div2,div3) We play in the Elite division against for instance Solid (SPL)

We play on a field called Slagen Paintball, it's a stationary field with pits, Millennium field, etc in a town called Tønsberg. We also host 2 of the NPLs.

www.slagenpaintball.no

Ledz: Could you give us a little bit of a rundown of the last event you played?

Kristine: The last event we played was Slagen Open, the third leg of the NPL at our home field. We played at noon Saturday (in NPL the best division of the day gets to play last, so no more 08am J ) we played against Solid twice this time because of some issues with the schedule. They play really good, and it's always cool to play them, it's how you get better fast:). The third game was against Sabotage (Solids feeder team ) To make the tournament even better, I got to dish out some welts to a few old players I`ve been waiting to see in front of my barrel again.
We went into the semifinals as the 2nd team, Solid qualified in 1st. The next team we had to play was Mashive Attack, Sebbans(Joy Division) great feeder team, who traveled all the way from Sweden just to attend this event. It was a tight and cool game who ended 3-1 to Mashive. Solid played, and won against Downfall from Stavanger. Solid won 3-1 against Mashive Attack and won the event with them as a good strong 2nd place.

So for us in the battle for the 3rd place it was Slagen Bandits vs Downfall. We won the first point, then they scored two in a row. We fought back and tied the game. In the last point we changed our play after the ten second warning based on what they showed us and sent a player to the M on the break and that disrupted their gameplan, so we were able to win that point and the match.

This is our first podium placement , we have a 4th and a 6th place so far this season, so the achievement of our 3rd place with the two really strong teams over us felt satisfying for now. We were also happy to give Solid a run for their money in our last prelim match and, show that their throne in NPL is not completely safe:)(Note: Kristine wrote this a few weeks ago. She has played a couple of times since and has has some great results.. Hopefully she will add a comment and let you know how she got on)
Ledz: What do you say to men that say girls can't play paintball?

Kristine: First of all, I challenge them to shut them up once and for all:) but seriously I think we're way past this now, a lot thanx to FLC but also to all the single girl players all around the world who shows these guys how wrong they are on a daily basis.

Ledz: Your shooting a GEO now. What do you think of that?

Kristine: To sum it up shortly - it's amazing! I've during the years played with a lot of different guns, both open and closed bolt. 3 years ago, when I got introduced to the EGO, I thought I would never let it go, and everyone who has ever shot an Ego knows what I'm talking about. But, then came the GEO. The first time I tried it I did not just experience the lightweight and the precision, but also noted the sound - or the lack of it. Something that is extremely important when it comes to communicating on field or hearing what the coach is saying. A lot of the people who have tried it, instantly love it. I recommend to everyone who plays paintball, give it a try, you won't regret it. And if you see me at tournaments, don't hesitate to ask, I'll let you try my Pink and black baby:)

So there you have it... Kristines next event will be playing at Campaign Cup in the UK. If you see her on the circuit around say hello. Hopefully Kristine will put pen to paper and let everyone know from time to time what she's up to and where you can catch her.....

Here is also a little newspaper article featuring our very own Kristine.

Cujo 2 ???

Eilidh is currently in the USA visiting the New Planet Offices.. This is an exctract from an e-mail Eilidh send me the other day....

First of all the dog ate my breakfast...like all of it(!), then later on it come to eat my lunch, so I grab my fish taco in one hand and tortillas in the other, then the dog starts eyeing up my salsa, so I grab that and balance it on my hand then the gannet-hound starts chomping through my bag (where I have left my passport!!!!) so i flip out to stop the dog and low and behold we are both showered with spicy tomato salsa. The ENTIRE room is covered!!! and it stinks!!!! Why couldn't Jacko have picked a nice red carpet and red chairs and a red table....

Welll I thought it was funny.

Tips and Tricks...

The stable of Eclipse Pro Teams and Payers from around the world is a pretty deep well of knowledge and skill. As we all don't have that knowledge and are not fortunate enough to play down in Southern California on a weekly basis we wanted to give you the opportunity to see inside the minds of some of the greatest players, coaches and techs in the World. So, we want to know what it is you want to hear and see about?

Do you want to know how to shoot and load like the pros, coach from the sidelines or fine tune your trigger? As long as it's Eclipse or Paintball related we can probably make it happen.

So get your idea's posted up here and you never know it might happen.

In the mean time we got the ball rollin and ask Thomas 'Troll' Taylor to give us a few Snake Tips and Tricks... So, check back here in a day or so and we will show you the first in the series or ETV 'Tips and Tricks'
