Well today was my first tournament with a pump!


First of all, let me say, Pump is the most FREAKING FUN I've had playing paintball in SO long. The Hammer is going to be leaving me very soon. It... ...sucks. Haha.

I'm definitely picking up a Phantom for the next event/pump marker instead of the Hammer. You should see the ghetto job I had to do with the "ghost ring" in order to actually aim with the damn thing. Hahaha. None-the-less, it was the most fun I've had in... well since Andy and Patrick came up haha.

Well, we were VS Semi. We were the only pump team there and bunkering with a pump is either really fun, or sucks horribly. (As you pump players know) Basically, we lost a game because Matt (captain) bunkered a guy and it ended up no breaking. DOH!
The guy ended getting up behind us without us knowing in the first round of the finals and screwed us up. I took 5 to the back and Tim (co-captain) took 3-6. :(

Well, for our first tournament as the team (officially) we won EVERY preliminary match. We weren't shot out once. We were in first going into the finals. The finals went as follows:

1st game: Loss, 0pts, no flag grab
2nd game: Loss, 20pts, no flag grab, 2 player elimination's in our favor
3rd game: Win, 100pts, flag grab and hang, 3 player elimination in our favor
4th game : Loss, Reff's fault. Guy was out by Matt, didn't check hit, ran through, took Matt out, snap battled me (he was laning my bunker pretty harsh) and the hammer chopped. ...that was that. :(

We gained ALOT of respect. We also got sponsored. Power Trip Energy drink is our new sponsor. They are giving us t-shirts, backpacks, baseball caps, screen printing assistance (they'll probably print their names on our jerseys for free) and we get all the Power Trip we can handle. :D

I'm definitely getting a Phantom before next event though I can't stand this Hammer. I had to put o-rings (cut) behind the spring to actually get it up to 250FPS. It was spiking from 150's to the 270's depending on the situation. This gun was lubed and everything... (Otters old Hammer :confused: )

Those jerseys will be done in two weeks for those that want them. We're trying to figure out a cost, but it wont be that much.

People laugh and make fun............but most of our phantoms are equipped with red dot's or Halo's............During tourny's it became quite common to get hit in the head when you peeked out of the first bunker :)

In fact Krazy8 and I played in kilts at an indoor field in Tacoma WA, people stared when we walked in the door.............so much most didn't notice what we had in our hands! When we slapped the 3.5 oz and 13 cu in tanks up they didn't even want to fill them because they were so small and abnormal to them. After we convinced them otherwise we each hopped in and played on different sides. I don't know how many times it ended up me vs him under the X after the other guys were shot out! But I know the very first game.......off the break one of the guys slid into his bunker and I anticipated the head poke and put a round right where I thought his head would poke out and gogged him! $2000 in brand new equipment on him..........he was really happy about that!

Nothing more humiliating and humbling that being whooped by a pump when you have a semi.

We got so much respect from that.

Congrats man, looks like someone had fun.

I won that game for us. Shot back right out from the snake.

Our jerseys weren't done yet so Alan made last minute shirts.

Tournament #3 went as follows:
Preliminary matches: 6W - 1L
Finals:
First match: Loss, 30PTS (Flag grab, 1 player elimination our favor)
Second match: Loss, 0PTS
Third match: Loss, 10PTS (1 player elimination, should have been two. Guy in white jersey cheated/wiped and played on as our captain pointed at him, yelling at him to get out, he got bunkered, which lead to me getting bunkered because of lack of knowledge of what was going on due to shouting and miscommunication.)
Fourth match: Win, 100PTS (3 player elimination, flag grab and hang our favor) None of us got shot out.

Final standings: 4th place.

Thanks. :)

We're working on getting sponsors, so if you know anyone, guys, let me know.

I was trying to promote Softearmods.com but the cameraman took a blurry pic, so you can't read the stickers on my tank. (My Profiler is PhatPhil Softear'd, same with my Flex)

We're going to be looking for some 5 man pump tourney's soon.

Softearmods.com FTW! I modded my Vantages quite a while ago, still wear them once in a while.

Doesn't look too bad, Ted. Need a better camera-man, though...

We have one event left this series... so wish us luck for April 20th! It would be nice to grab 2nd or 3rd.

We even have a team website up now: http://murdermachine.890m.com/home.htm

Thanks! I just also realized that the worst score gets thrown away!! That means we're in second place.

This means that we get plaques with our names and **** on them as well as prizes. This also means we're going to get an ass load of respect.

Not many people at our field can do what we've been doing, playing against semi's using pumps and doing this good.

No offense to you guys, as it's a pretty sick accomplishment, but what were these guys smoking? A good run through should have taken down at least two of you guys. Skill + a little luck that not many of these teams knew that if you have a firepower advantage you have to try to use it to use it. Good Job, we'll need pics of your winnings. :up:

Also two things: That cocker is hot.

You should look into the carni-sniper WGP is selling, it might be cheaper than certain phantom configs if you want to use compressed air.

I'm running a 2k3 Cocker right now. I'll post pics as soon as I get my red detent and Vigilante Reg. Thats my hopper fed system.

Then I'll be getting my 4 tone acid wash Urban camo Phantom for Stock Class.

Yeah, they're not very smart. We got stomped by the first place team that way though.

We made a little kid cry because of how intimidating we are... idk why, but thats a great feeling. "We make little kids cry" rofl. His team was up against us in the finals and he didn't want to VS us. (We were undefeated in the preliminary matches and not one of us got shot out, thats why he was freaked out... yet he as a Vicious Ego8 and a VLocity with a Gangstar chip..)

I got none of that when I played pump inside. something about being shot off the break every time may have done it. Outside is a whole different story though. I make faces melt.

Alan got shot off break once when sliding into snake. Got clipped in the noggin.

It was rather amusing. He took way to long to duck down into the tombstone at the end of snake 1.

My indoor field is comparable to cutting off about 1/6 of the field's width from each side, then starting from the 20 on each side. I got shot by at least 2 people on a nearly perfect superman to a Dorito, the gap was 5 feet wide.
