San Diego Dynasty and Empire Paintball End Their Sponsorship Agreement

San Diego, CA-San Diego Dynasty and Empire Paintball will not be
renewing their sponsorship agreement. Dynasty has been using Empire
jerseys, pants, pads, loaders, packs, goggles and gear bags since 2010,
and used products from JT since the inception of Dynasty in 2001. In
that time Dynasty became the winningest team in the history of paintball
with more tournament wins and series titles than any other team in the
history of the sport.

Empire Paintball and JT Sports are brands of KEE Action Sports LLC, the
worldwide leader in the manufacturing and distribution of paintball
equipment and supplies. Their brands include Empire, E-Flex, E-Vents,
Prophecy, JT Sports, RPS, EVIL, Axe, BT Paintball, HALO, Pure Energy,
View Loader, Invert, Invert Mini, and Pure Energy.

“Dynasty greatly appreciates all of the support from the Empire family
of products that have helped us continue our winning tradition over the
past few years,” said Alex Fraige, Captain of San Diego Dynasty.
“Unfortunately Dynasty and Empire are moving in different directions,
but we wish Empire nothing but the best moving forward. It’s been a
great relationship, and we’re sorry to see it have to come to an end.”

Jason A. Taitano, VP of Marketing for Empire added, “Dynasty is one of
the best teams in paintball, and we have enjoyed a great relationship
with them over the years. We wish them continued success.”

San Diego Dynasty won their fourth tournament of 2011 this weekend, taking home first place honors at the Chicago NPPL event. Dynasty is now a perfect four-for-four this seasons with wins in Galveston, Huntington Beach, Paris, and now Chicago.

Dynasty played their preliminary games on Saturday, and finished 5-2 with their losses coming against long time rival Oakland Blast, and the NPPL’s newest pro team, Portland Uprising.

On Sunday, Dynasty faced off against Avalanche, Arsenal, and Infamous, and won all three best-of-three matches. Dynasty then played a best-of-three match against Edmonton Impact to see who would advance to play for first place, and again came out on top. Avalanche beat Portland Uprising on the other side, pitting Dynasty against Avalanche in the finals and Uprising and Impact playing for third and fourth place.

The finals against Avalanche proved to be unforgettable and controversial. Dynasty came out on top, keeping their winning streak alive for 2011. Avalanche finished 2nd, Portland Uprising surprised everyone with a 3rd Place finish, and Impact finished 4th.

San Diego Dynasty continued their winning ways with a victory at the 2011 Huntington Beach NPPL event. The win was their third win of the year, and 50th professional win. Dynasty already had more wins and series titles than any other team in the history of the sport, but the 50th victory was an important milestone none the less. “Making it to fifty wins is incredible,” said Dynasty Captain Alex Fraige. “Now it’s time for fifty more.”

Dynasty started slow in Huntington Beach, losing their first two games to Oakland Blast. As they’ve done many times in the past, they turned things around quickly, and played the rest of the tournament without losing a game.

They started their winning ways with two wins against Chicago Aftershock, and finished out the preliminary round with two wins against San Francisco Explicit. That was enough to make it to the Quarter Finals on Sunday where they would face off against San Antonio X Factor, DC Arsenal, and Edmonton Impact. Dynasty won all three matches without losing a game, advancing to the semi finals to play Chicago Legend.

Dynasty kept rolling and won their two games against Legend to earn a spot in the finals where they would face their long time rival Sacramento XSV. After two hard fought victories, Dynasty earned their 50th career win, 3rd win of the 2011 season, and were once again the NPPL Surf City Open champions.

The entire event is available On Demand at ESPN3.com if you want to check out any of the weekends great action.

Sunday, March 27

Dynasty continued their strong start to the 2011 Season with a win at the Millennium Series opener in Paris.

Dynasty got off to a strong start with a 5-3 victory over the Toulouse Tontons, but then stumbled in a 5-2 loss to the Marseille Icon. After the loss, the last prelim game against Toulouse Dagnir Dae became a must win game to have a chance to advance, and Dynasty came up big with a 5-0 victory.

Sunday started with a 5-1 victory over the London Shock which was followed up by a 5-0 victory over Breakout Spa in the semi finals.

Dynasty would meet Art Chaos Moscow in the finals who have multiple players from the Russian Legion on their roster making this essentially a rematch of the finals from the PSP Galveston.

Once again Dynasty came out on top with a 5-2 victory, winning the first Millennium event of the year. With back to back victories to start the season, Dynasty will look to continue their success in Huntington Beach at the NPPL’s first event on April 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. You can watch that event live on ESPN3.com all weekend long. Go to www.NPPL.com for all the details

Paintball needs your help to get back on TV. If enough people watch this show, we have a good chance on getting back on television with ESPN. So let your friends, your family, and anyone else you can know about the show, and tell them to watch it.

If you want to see paintball on TV, or for some reason you can’t watch the show on ESPN3.com (it’s not available everywhere to everyone), email ESPN and tell them. They are paying attention to these emails, and every email helps: We need your help promoting the NPPL HB event on ESPN3.com.

The bottom line is that if enough people watch this thing, we have a decent shot at getting back on TV. I’ve attached some different graphics that can be used. Ideally we’d like the links to go to NPPL.com, which has a new home page up dedicated just to this show. That page is 100% sponsor free.

We are also encouraging people to contact ESPN and tell them they want to see paintball on TV, as well as if they want to watch the show, but can’t, click here to email ESPN.

They are reading and counting emails, so this isn’t meaningless.

OLIVER LANG OFFICIALLY REJOINS DYNASTY

After months of speculation, Oliver Lang has announced that he will be playing with Dynasty for the 2011 Season. Rumors began circulating at the end of the 2010 season, and only intensified after Oliver attended Dynasty’s first practice of the year.

Oliver then skipped Dynasty’s second practice to practice with the Ironmen, leaving everyone wondering exactly what he planned to do. Oliver made it official on Friday evening when he texted some of his new teammates one simple word, “Dynasty!!”. He then let the world know when he tweeted, “Yes it’s true!! I’m back in blue!!!!!!”.

Dynasty is excited about the addition of Oliver to the roster, and are looking forward to a great 2011 season. Dynasty will be playing in the Professional division of the NPPL, the PSP, and the Millennium and will have players participating on teams all over the world.

This weekend we had our first practice getting ready for the Las Vegas NPPL event. Edmonton Impact flew down to San Diego for practice, and we had a great couple days learning the field at Camp Pendleton. As always, our RPS paint shot great. For some of us, it was our first chance to use the new Eclipse Dynasty Geo 2 that others had gotten just before the DC NPPL and MAO. Impact is a great team, and they always give us a good practice.
