Rebels... End of Season Wrap Up !




NM-Norwegian Masters

NM is always an exiting tournament. The field is always secret so no one gets to practice on it before the tournament. This is also always an area for discussion, but that’s also part of the NM-warmup. This year’s field-layout was made by Nick Brockdorff. And to the oldies out there – no, it was nothing like the Amsterdam layout :-)

Rebels started a bit rough, when you’re used to playing the fields before you use them at tournaments the first game will often hit you like a cold shower. They started out against Blast who clearly have walked the field with a better precision, 4:0 to Blast.


But after a shower you will always come out fresher. The first proof of that was the next game against Oslo Embers – 4:1 with energy to spare.

Then they met Rampage, a young team with a lot of fight in them, but this time they couldn’t match Rebels at all 4:0 win.



Last prelim game was NTNUI black, a up and coming d1 team from Trondheim who have tons of reball hours split between them. It’s always great to see d1 teams stepping up to the challenge to try and take on the elite teams. This time it didn’t go all there way, Rebels won 4:0


So, the semis were up, and Blast were waiting again. This time their advantage of better fieldwalking was gone and the playingfield was leveled. It was an even game with points back and forth until it was 3:3. Rebels tried to end the game, but the time was against them and they hit the buzzer 2 seconds too late. No point instead and on to overtime. In this point Rebels manages to shoot one of their own, giving themselves a one for one, and can’t pick up the game from there. So, close, but Blast wins 4:3.


After that it’s hard to pick up the motivation again, but they try their best playing bronzefinals against Solid. This is also a tough game, and even though the motivation was low they wouldn’t let Solid get any points for free. Then at 3:2 something strange happens, the refs suddenly asks Rebels to step on with 4 players without an explanation, no one understands anything, not even Solid. This leads to Solid winning 4:2, ending Rebels on 4th place. After the game they got told that it was a technical error in the game before, a towel button malfunctioning leading to the fatal error, but the error was already done, nothing to do about it unfortunately. 4th place is not bad in the fight to be Norways best team, but it just feels a bit hard to swallow that it could have been a different outcome if the system didn’t malfunction.


Paris, last leg of the Millennium series

At least once a year the airports are on strike, and at least once a year paintballers will have to travel precisely at that moment :)

Rebels were supposed to arrive a day before the tournament, with enough time to even go sightseeing – well, why plan on doing anything other than paintball, the flights were moved several times, but at least they made it to the tournament.


The first game was a bit messy and they were testing out a lot of things they didn’t have the time to do before the tournament. But even with people shot because of that they won over Poison Ivy 4:0. A good start to the tournament.

Razorback Saint Etienne was the next opponent where Rebels were under in points a long time before they turned it around and made the scoreboard tell about a  4:3 win. 


Saturday: Inflame Regensburg were up. Rebels have played them before and knew they were a tough opponent, but with a good gameplan and focused minds they steered the game in to a solid 5:1 win

Sunday club! So many times, but its still a great feeling! A confirmation on that what we do is right.

Sunday they started against Razorback from the prelims. The second game against them this weekend, they knew it would be a hard one. Making it harder on themselves they had a bit too few helpers in the pit, so by trying to fix a problem in the pit they didn’t manage to fill the startgate with 5 people at one point. They also tried taking a time-out which became a towel – talk about trying to give yourself the hardest match ever. Razorback was up 3:0 and it was time to wake up! And that they did. They pushed on taking back point by point going up to 3:3. Last point, it was just over 1 minute left on the clock, and Sigve managed to buzz with 2 seconds left. 4:3 and they were through!


Next up in the quarterfinal was Bandits Wels, they’ve been looking at the Razorback game so Rebels had a good mental grip on them. It was a good game, ended 4:2 with no hickups.

So the semifinal, Bad Boys Oss, the nemesis. These guys are incredible players with a stable game. Unfortunately for Rebels they were an inch better. The game ended 4:3 to Bad Boys in overtime.


After a long wait the bronzefinal was finally here. The opponent was Droogs, a team from Frankfurt with a couple of Americans attending. Rebels were prepared for a really tough game, last time they met they played overtime plus 1 vs 1 before Rebels won.
This game though, was completely different, everything Rebels did seemed to work and in under 3 minutes the bronze medal was in their hands – 4:0 in the bronzefinal, something to be proud of!

Congratulations to Rebels for a great season-ending – 3rd place in Millennium Paris!


Rebels want to thank our sponsors for having our backs and believing in us: Planet Eclipse and Virtue Paintball for awesome equipment, Anthrax for rocking cool jerseys and coffe in their booth. Blitzed media and Bjerke Media for making us look good. We would also like to thank: Fight Back Design, Energima, RVS, JKS rør and Proteinfabrikken

Beira Mar go for the title !




On the 23rd of September, we arrived at Valencia airport. We were on our way to Gandía (65 km south of Valencia, Spain) to dispute the final stage of the EXPL (Spanish x-ball paintball league). We got to spend some good times, hanging out with the team, chilling at the beach on Friday, and on Saturday some of the players got a chance to play some relaxed  3 on 3 paintball, which we won :-)


Our goal for the weekend, was obviously to secure the first place in the tournament and ensuring the first position in the overall ranking. Before Sunday, we were on leading, followed by Blue falcon with only one point difference. This made it clear for us, that there was no room for error. Even though we were conscious about the situation, what we had to do and what we couldn’t let happen, Sunday did not go well for us.



We started off the day playing Arca Gandía at 10:15 (which was comfortably awesome), and this was our first and only loss in the prelims, with a score of 3-4. This made it clear for us that the quality of the Spanish paintball is getting better by the year and that we had to up our game in order to achieve our goal. Nothing was lost yet.

After the previous match, we decided that we had to dig deep if we were to make it to the finals. So for the last two prelim games (Ecosport Granada and Atlantic Games BCM), we played solid paintball, we were playing as a unit. We obtained a 5-1 and a 4-0 victory.


At this point, we were confident in our game and in the fact that the first position was in reach and thus securing the championship. However, we were just a little bit to confident and underestimated the evolution of the Spanish paintball. We slowed down our game, and this cost us the match against Arca Gandia on the semifinals, ending our run for champion spot.

The fact that Blue Falcon advanced to the finals, and we didn’t, obtained them the first position in the overall ranking. We got a 4th place in this stage and 2nd in the overall ranking :-(

Even thought, we didn’t accomplish any of our goals in the field, we felt like we had a great weekend as teammates. However, this is not our purpose as Beira-mar paintball team, we don’t play paintball for weekends abroad or for the 3rd and 4th position, we play to win. Although this year was not positive for us (neither in the Spanish or Portuguese leagues), we did learn that we need to fight harder if we are aiming for that number one spot.



We want to congratulate Blue Falcon for the championship and for the first place at this event, and all of the Spanish teams present in this league. The paintball evolution of these teams is improving at an astonishing rate. Finally, we want to take this chance to thank all of the support from our sponsors who provide us the best gear there is:
- ADRENALICIA PAINTBALL
-SOGER CUSTOM PAINTBALL
- GI SPORTZ
- PLANET ECLIPSE
-V-FORCE
-VIRTUE PAINTBALL
-WAY CARS
PARQUE DA VILLA

Stay tuned for next season, we will come back stronger!

Purge 2 - 1st October 2016



Adrenalin Paintball presents The Purge 2. The 8-hour scenario game will happen at 9am on Saturday, October 1st 2016 at Big Indian Paintball & Airsoft, located at 301 Valley Drive Perry, GA.

It was a traumatic night two years ago when Allison learned that her father had lost against the Annual Purge. She was so devastated by the news of her father that her family had to commit her to the Perry Hospital’s psychiatric ward. She vowed that one day the man who took her father from her would pay and this was the year to make that happen. She was able to make a plan to escape the ward and find him. She was dragging him through the town towards the house she grew up in as a little girl. Her plan is to hold him captive until the next purge.... 

In 2014, Adrenalin Paintball held an 8-hour Purge Game.  The success was so overwhelming that players were asking for another.  Hollywood recently released the new “Purge” movie and the Purge 2  8-hour game is coming this October 1st to Big Indian Paintball Field in Perry, GA.  Register early at the www.bigindianpaintball.com events page.  Early registration cost is  $50.00 per person, which includes a case of paint.  After September 19th, the cost goes up to $65.00.  The first 85 players who register will recieve a free headband.  Information can be found at Adrenalin Paintball LLC’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/AdrenalinPaintballLLC/?fref=ts and be sure to go to the Big Indian web page to watch the trailers.
