With crystal clear skies and a relentless hot sun, Media Wars kicked off with Kerry “Viper” Rosenberry delivering pre game announcements and going over in detail all of the various aspects one comes to expect of a typical Viper game. As always slap sticks were in play aside from various missions throughout the day. Next Wolf of the Wolf’s Den got the mic to deliver a well worded speech to the over 600 players in attendance. Immediately following Mike Phillips, well known personality of TechPB took the stage to rattle his troops to prepare for battle. For this event, not only were Viper game officials present to referee, so to were the Discipline Lords and The Northern Gunmen, amounting to a well rounded crew to oversee the game all day long.
11am sharp signaled the game to commence. Almost instantly, hungry TechPB fans swept on to the field and quickly pushed the Wolf’s troops hard into a corner. As Wolf mentioned, General Mike’s use of RPG’s proved a powerful tool in taking parts of the field and putting a dent into his forces throughout the entirety. The battles were fierce and paint whistled through the air in some very heated exchanges. As the day wore on it was Mike’s tactics to try and keep the battle on the open field and cook Wolf’s troops in the dry heat. On more than one occasion Wolf’s people rallied and drove the opposition well back into the tree line. As Wolf so aptly put it “ lots of pushing back and forth, its been like a yo yo a lot of the day”
Couple of things of note with this event was a good showing of our American cousins including TDevil of the Psycho Clown Posse and Sonny Lopez of the LA Hitmen, Gino and Debbie Postorivo and Will Bourgault of Valken Sports, Weltman and elements of Damage Inc and others. Further still and a comment made to me that I had to agree with, were a healthy attendance of sister ballers, more women than ever were out playing a great day of paintball. It seems more and more vendors are appearing at Canadian big games and Canadian Carnage had a strong presence with everything from Empire, Tippmann, Valken, Wak’d Customs, SWAT Original Tactical Boots, Azodin, Paintball Weazels Laser Engraving, Underground Productz, AZTEK Products, Paintball HQ, Behind the Bunker, Pinnacle Paintball, Tier One Tactical, Event Souvenirs and Flagswipe Paintball.
Wow so many great teams were out including Citrus Connection, Devil Dogs, Glen Morris Mercenaries, ODST, War Hounds, Algonquin Irregulars, Velocity Vixens, Kingston SOG, OpFor, Team Wrath, A Team Assassins, SAS Canada, Danger Close, Steel City SWAT, OPEL Army, Sector 57 Spartans, BlackOps, Urban Conflict, Reaper Crew, S.O.C.A.T, Sudden Harm, FUBAR Pbl, Tactical Operations, The Corpse, Muskoka Bomb Squad, Paintball Weazels, C.H.A.O.S, EZ Creation, Bad Company, Anti-RevolutionÂ and even elements of Damage Inc. and Nassagaweya Assault Unit.
According to sources, the final battle was EPIC, elements of Citrus Connection like many others were at this point in the day out of paint and made suicide runs on the slap sticks to help seal the victory for TechPB. Victory it was … something of a landslide victory went to the TechPB side with a sizable point spread of 500 points with final scores TechPB roughly 800 versus Wolf’s Den around 300. From the Citrus Connection Facebook page, TechPB XO Josh “Orange” Saumure mentioned “Citrus had another great showing out there, this time taking the “MOFO” Award (Most Formidable Opponent) handed out by Wolf, General of the opposing team. Ourselves and the Dogs were in it knee deep across the lines along with several other great teams like EZCreation, Bad Company, Anti-Revolution, Op For and many more. An extra thanks to the guys from Op For and the other local players with excellent knowledge of the field which gave us an edge out there”. As the dust settled, all the various teams and players in attendance will easily be able to return to daily routines with more than a few good war stories from the first successful Viper Scenario on Canadian soil.
