Paintball World Cup Asia

True to its name, Paintball World Cup Asia was a fierce battle between teams from over 32 countries from around the world. The World Cup Asia (referred to as WCA) hosted 1,810 paintball players hailing from 152 paintball teams. Teams competed in an indoor facility on astro-turf and millennium series bunkers. The layout itself lent to a defensive style of game play with 5 of the larger bunkers based in the back of the field. Paintball website View from the Deadbox had a spot on analysis of the game play.

The final match up for the PALS World Cup Asia was hosted last night in the beautiful Langkawi, Malaysia. Hailing from Iran, Team Datis retained their World Cup title in a match up against Reaper from South Africa (final score 4-1, Datis). Team Datis played a no-nonsense, methodical game of paintball throughout the event. The players remained focus and respectful throughout and were the clear winners.

Playing regularly since 1997. Competed in local, regional, national and international paintball series. Founded and lead Long Beach State to a National Collegiate Championship victory. Proudly banned from the NPPL after legitimately winning a 5 on 1. Have since made it a hobby to promote paintball and at the same time make a point to call out paintball industry shenanigans and those that intentionally impede the growth of paintball. Welcome to
