2012 Millennium Disney World Cup

Written by

Coming into the Millennium Series Disney World Cup many of the division series titles were on the line with only a few points to spare among the top teams.  Promotions and relegations were also on the line. The final event of the 2012 Millennium Series was set almost two weeks later than normal due to a conflict with the NPPL World Championships Las Vegas event.  And for the first time in many years Mother Nature was not happy with the change.  Thursday and Friday of the event turned out to be partly cloudy but on Saturday the skies opened up that left the fields and players facing a new challenge. Sunday would be no different as a steady rain progressed the entire day until just before the awards ceremony.

Millennium Series St. Tropez

Written by

Welcome to St Tropez/Cannes, Hollywood’s playground and now the playground of the Millennium Series.  Although St Tropez is nearly 50km from where the venue is the Millennium Series board considers it St Tropez.  Many players were a bit dissappointed when they arrived to find that we were no where near St Tropez, however were soon soothed by the fact that its the begining of the 2012 paintball season in Europé and no matter where we found ourselves someone would be getting mugged on the field this weekend.

The site of first event of the season was held at Oasis Village in Puget Sur Argens France, a small resort village near St Raphael.  We arrived on Thursday to retreive our press passes and begin coverage of the team practices.  Due to high winds and weather conditions the fields were not yet completed and so the first two sets of practices on all four fields were canceled.  Once the netting was put back in place the practices resumed as normal.  Several new vendors this year appeared down through the vendor city, one such was Anthrax Custom Paintball Jerseys.  Returning vendors such as Maxs, HK Army, Eclipse and Dye were on hand with new items for the 2012 season.  To find the site one must traverse through the complex of rental cabins and mobile homes that many of the particiapants called home sweet home for the weekend.  The Millennium Series marked the way to the fields clearly and since the weather in the French Rivera was quite nice the walk wasnt so bad.  For this first event both Copenhagen Synergy and Instinct Gemoss Riga were the marshalling teams along with the regular crew of EuroRefs.  This gave both teams the seed point that everyone strives for the first event.

Millennium Series Bitburg Germany

Written by

Road to European Championships – Millennium Series Leg # 2 Bitburg Germany European Masters

Our latest stop on the Millennium Series train took us to Bitburg Germany for the European Masters event.  We found hot weather, hot paintball action and hot tempers. We saw upsets and jubilation.  It would be the return of San Diego Dynasty to the top of the podium and a stunned Art Chaos Moscow.  This event also crowned the toughest female team for the European Women’s Championships.

Last year the EPBF implemented an extension to the Nations Cup event to include a women’s and under 19 championships.  Last year’s Bitburg event saw the first such Women’s Championship.  Unfortunately there were only three teams last year.  This year was a totally different event with six teams in attendance: Russia, France, Germany, Great Britain, Poland and Austria.  Defending champions France once more took top honors defeating Russia.  This match up was a reprise from the Arena Girls Cup Moscow event where Harpies and Valkyries battled and vied for the right to play for 1st and 2nd place against Fat Lady’s Charms.  The French win gave seeding points for France going into the Nations Cup and U19 events.  The team from Great Britain was mainly comprised of a new all-female team hitting the scene in Bitburg, Celtic Banshees.  Results from the Women’s Championships would be 1st place France, 2nd place Russia and 3rd place Germany.  At the London Masters we will see who is the best of the best in the Nations Cup men’s event.

Road to the European Championships – London Masters

Our road to the Millennium Series Championships brought us to the land of tea, crumpets and the 2012 Olympics – London England.  This would be the 3rd event of the season.  It would also be a defining moment in the series standings.  Going into this event Art Chaos was behind Dynasty in the series standings with hopes to regain the top spot.  This event would bring the first time TonTons would reign over the other CPL teams.  The EPBF would also present the European Championship Mens competition.  Team Great Britian had a title to defend on home soil and would have to fight to keep it. This year brought 21 countries to the championships, a great increase from last year.  The weekend marched on to the beat of high winds, rain and excitement.
