Played in a Mech only Tournament Yesterday - what a Blast!

Yesterday Tanks Katy Paintball hosted his first Mech Only Tournament titled the Old School Tournament. There were eleven teams and the vast majority of the teams we using pumps.

There was unlimited paint, six minute games, and all games were played on a hyperball type field. We had two brackets in the prelims and we took the four highest teams out of the prelims and put them into a four team finals (next time we will likely have a six team semi bracket). One of Tanks other sponsored teams provided good and unbiased reffing.

I saw every type of marker that I have missed over the years. Mech cockers, mech Automags, Blazers, a Tippmann or two, and a lot of cool revitalized cockers that were turned back into pumps.

Pumpenstein put three teams in the tournament and we randomly drew for our teams by pulling cards. We had Pumpentein Aces, Kings, and Jacks. The joke immediately was that the lowest place Pumpenstein team was to be re-titled the Pumpenstein 'Queens'.

The play was clean, there was only one oddball call where a player hung the flag with a hit he should have seen, but the rules were quickly figured out and no tempers were close to being lost. There was no overshooting and although play was fast and furious - all I saw were fist daps and hand shakes after the games.

The final four places were:

1) Pumpenstein Kings
2) Pumpenstein Aces (my team)
3) Paintball Knights (from San Antonio - who had two teams in the tournament)
4) Pumpenstein Jacks - retitled Pumpenstein 'Queens'.

Our three team team shot three cases of paint - and we pooled about a case at the end for the next practice. This tells you how little paint was shot in these games. We had a blast and Tanks plans on doing it again soon. Keep your eye out for another mech tournament soon!

Here is a POV shooter from one of the other teams (Team Fate) where one of the players had a camera on his Blazer. The footage isn't great - but - come on... it is a Blazer - in all its glory!

We have been hosting a 3 man mech series the weekend after the GFOA at DLP. It has been a great deal of fun as well. A great deal of the teams who play the GFOA come to this with pumps and just mess around and unwind.

I love to see the resurgence of mech play. Good stuff.

That sounds like an absolutely amazing tournament.

Hyperball fields... pumps... what could be better?

Only a T2 can do that.
