2011 WCPPL Event 2 – Laning Breakdown & Analysis

Baca Loco offers up his take on breakout strategy for the WCPPL’s Event 2 layout. If you’ve read any of his previous write-ups, you know his thoroughness in analysis and keen understanding of the game can provide meaningful insight into the strategic particulars of any field layout. If you study and apply it well enough, you might just find yourself playing for the podium in three weeks..

Check out a teaser of the article below and the full monty here.

On this layout the potential exists for some very fast and destructive points to be put up from the D-side. This is true despite the fact that many D-wire bunkers are in a disadvantageous position vis-a-vis the snake. The key to those fast points is to either quickly eliminate D-side players and/or deny them wide spots on the field while taking large chunks of real estate early.

The weekend was filled with great paintball and great teams. The reffing was nothing short of phenomenal and a special thank you to Mike & Jessica Hinman, the refs, and the WCPPL for putting on and keeping going one of the best series that paintball has to offer. Make sure to check in with pbnation.com’s WCPPL forum to watch for the new media coverage from the first paintball event of the year.

Mike & Jessica Hinman and the WCPPL are doing a great job keeping the event running smooth and on time. The event is halfway through, with most of the preliminary rounds finished. Division 2 teams will be finishing their preliminaries before finals Sunday morning.  Division 3 was played throughout the whole day on both fields 1 and 2 and spectators enjoyed several well played and intense games.  Teams to watch out for in D3 are Hellcats swooping in from Tucson to secure a fist place seed going into quarter finals closely followed by the only other D3 team to go 4-0 Fuzion, followed by Elusive II in 3rd place.  Here are the Preliminary Scores of the D3.

D2 had some great matches as well, with some big upsets and some great wins. With the second half of the division 2 preliminaries yet to be played, it goes without saying that the first place trophy is still up for grabs. There were some solid showings in the premier division, most notably from Davis Ambush pulling out some big wins, Paintball Gateway beating two time series champions San Diego Mob and Nor Cal Fuzion finishing the rest of the prelim matches currently in second. Last but not least, Golden State Pirates are in third with a clean 2-0 record for today. Here are the first half of the prelim scores for D2.

FUZION wins WCPPL Event #4

FUZION wins WCPPL Event #4 by Tim Cerruti

Camp Pendleton Paintball Park on September 11th and 12th hosted Event 4 of the WCPPL. Players and teams alike eagerly awaited this event after the summer break after the league announced event #3 cancelation. Suffice to say that the wait paid off well as the weekend was full of intense paintball action; great points and hard fought matches. Fuzion and Nuskool went into Finals completely undefeated and mostly unchallenged up until their matchup. LA Hitmen and San Diego Mob’s battle for 3rd and 4th place was incredibly exciting to watch with it coming down to time for the Hitmen win. Nuskool’s final match with Fuzion was something else, a definite thrill ride. Everyone would watch eagerly to see how the match would settle and an unfortunate penalty at the end helped Fuzion get the final point they needed to win 5-4. The crowd in attendance went completely nuts, chanting Nor-Cal. Other really intense matches were the Davis Ambush vs Fuzion game, Hitmen vs Nuskool, and SD Mob vs Fuzion.

D3 winners LVPP.net played incredibly well the entire weekend all the way through finals. GS Pirates, Tombstone, and Royalty were fun to watch with some points coming down really close to the wire.

A big thanks to Mike Hinman as well as the Aftermath team and Refs for holding the event. They are facilitating the west with a strong Race-To series for West Coast paintball teams to put their skills to the test. With only one more event of the season, the Series Title for nearly all of the divisions is completely up for grabs. I am sure we will see you all next time at the series finale CAL JAM.

I hope everyone will please continue to support and represent the WCPPL. This league is a strong foundation to try and rebuild upon.
