September 1st at Paintball De Naaldhof Oss it was time for the
important final fifth leg of the Dutch Scenario Competition. This fifth
leg is the last opportunity this season to qualify for the season
finals. The top4 teams with the highest win% of all games played this
season will qualify for the October Finals.
To qualify for the finals we had to win two out of the four games
this leg. A challenging day because almost all of the teams currently
ranked in the top 4 were playing this leg.
Our first game was scheduled against Fubar. Fubar has won the season
title in previous years. In the last leg we were the first team to beat
them this season. So we knew we were able to get this one done. Fully
focused, pumped up with adrenaline and energy we started this first
game. We were able to quickly break through their right flank and push
them back. They tried to recover with a restart, When a restart is
called by a team everyone in the field has to get back to their own
deadbox within 30 seconds and the game has a fresh start. FUBAR wasn’t
able to recover and we won this game with great numbers 17-79. This is
perhaps the biggest loss for Fubar ever. And we hoped that the day would
be like the well known phrase: “A good start is half the work”.
We continued this flow in our matches against El Torro 81 – 21. And
in the afternoon we also won the game against our biggest rivals in the
ranking for the season finals; Bad Company 85-10. The last game of the
day was against Madball. But not Madball or the Bandits loose a single
game yet this day and by some of the players (and referee’s) it was
already called the match of the day Madball plays the NSC this season
with the support of SupAir pro´s of Amsterdam Heat, another Planet
Eclipse sponsored team. And while they had to adapt to this type of
gameplay this woods field was small setup with the possibilities of a
quick gameplan, something they are more used to.
Before the match there was some healthy rivalry between the teams.
Both teams wished each other good luck at the start and it was time to
rock and roll. Madball had a strong opening, they were able to eliminate
our center field players with annoying lines of paint. After some more
heavy paint battles they were able to push through our left flank. We
were not able to adapt quickly enough so we lost a lot of players within
the first respawn. There was a nice fight for the swing base going
from Bandits to Madball to Bandits to Madball multiple times. We were
able to keep our own flag until the last 30 seconds of the game but we
were never able to get control of this game and lost with 32-70.
We won three of our four games today and therefore we qualified for the Season Finals!
Looking back to this season this is a great result! Overall the level
of gameplay of the NSC raised enormously . With new comers like
Madball/Heat and guest teams like (supair team) Aggression we had a
tough time qualifying. But in the three legs we played this season we
end one time as Winners and two times as Runnerups. We won all games
against Fubar, the NSC champion for multiple years in a row now. And we
hope we can continue this streak as we have to play 2 games against
Fubar in the first round of the Finals in October.
We would like to say thanks to the NSC for making this possible, de
Naaldhof for hosting this leg and Praetorians for marshalling. Thanks to
all participating teams for this nice season so far. We really like the
friendly atmosphere in the NSC competition. It really feels like a
bunch of friends playing! And while we play against each other in the
NSC we play as one team in the European Biggames. We have showed Europe
that we got a high level of scenario paintball in the Netherlands!
As TC i would Salute to our Bandits that showed their commitment this
season and i am proud of all the progress we made as a team. Working on
the technique, tactics and communication during all our days in the

Booom..... another series win for the Emortal Army :-)
me sick when scum just think it's OK to break into someone’s place and steal their
stuff... We as the Paintball Community should make sure these people have
nowhere to sell their loot... It might be a bargain but if these scum bags
think they can make some money from stealing Paintball gear then you might be
the next victim !!!!
If anyone is offered any of these markers DO NOT BUY THEM, call Badlands in Canada and tell the Police....
