Predators Win 2013 ATWL Championship

Paintballers will swear up and down that big paintball games always seem to coincide with the most inclement of weather. The paintball gods do however listen to player's pleas for leniency from time to time. Proof of this came recently when the remnants of hurricane Gabriel that the Canadian Hurricane Centre had predicted to hit Nova Scotia, moved further west then forecast narrowing missing the province.

Woodsballers from across the region were happy to play the Tippmann X7 Phenom Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League Championship, at Mersey Road Paintball in East River, Nova Scotia on September 14, 2013 under cloudy skies and gentle breezes rather then 100kp/h winds and torrential rains.

The season long battle for woodsball supremacy came down to a showdown between two veteran teams, the Mersey Road Predators and the Nova Scotia Mercenaries.

Both the Mercenaries and Predators have won the ATWL title in the past. The experienced players on each team know exactly what it takes to repeat as champion. The look of steely determination in the eyes of players as they took the field gave an indication of how exciting the paintball championship would be.

From the opening horn the ATWL championship final was a pitched battle. Neither team was willing back down nor show weakness to the other. The teams rushed forward to the capture points under a hail of paintballs. The intensity of play increased as the game wore on. The veteran players saved their best paintball for the championship while the young guns tried even harder to out play the 'old guys'.

The final horn sounded and the players gathered eagerly awaiting the announcement of the official scores and reviewing the prize table. The table generously packed with items from Tippmann, PBL, NXe, and GI Sportz, plus gold, silver and bronze medals, and of course the one thing all the players want to get their hand on - the ATWL cup.

The officials met and when the final scores were tabulated it was the Mersey Road Predators who conquered all to win the Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League championship for the second time in three years.

"The team played great today, they saved the best for last." said Derrick Keeler of the Predators "Early in the season we had our issues on the field, but everyone stepped up their game and came together when it counted. It feels incredible to be on top again after the disappointment last season."

The outstanding sportsmanship and skill shown on the field by all the teams and the players of the ATWL has shown that competitive woodsball is alive and well in Eastern Canada.

The league would like to thank Tippmann Sports and BuyPBL for their outstanding support of the league. Without the support of these paintball industry leaders the ATWL would not be possible. The league would also like to thank Mersey Road Paintball and Hypersportz Paintball for use of their outstanding facilities this season.

If all goes well the ATWL will be expanding to play an event at Spikes Paintball, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island for an event in 2014. There are still many details to iron out but if all goes as planned next season each one of the three events will be played in a different province. For the first time in league history the ATWL will be a truly regional league for the Maritimes and Maritime players.

Oklahoma D-Day My "must attend paintball game"


I attend many games throughout the summer paintball season. I because of what I do for a living I get to attend many more games than most people, but one event has become a must attend game for me.

2012 ATWL Event 3

ATWL Event Three and First Round of Playoffs

The speedball season in Atlantic Canada is over which means competitive woodsball is ready to ramp back into full swing. Eastern Canada's premier woodsball league, the Tippmann X7 Phenom Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League Event 3 was played Saturday September 22, 2012.

The league was very excited that for the first time the ATWL has expanded outside Nova Scotia to Mission Paintball in Moncton New Brunswick, Canada. Mission Paintball, long known for producing some of the best speedball players in the country, has a newly expanded woodsball field and a crew of hard core woodsball players ready to battle for the ATWL Cup.

The field at Mission Paintball is like none other in Atlantic Canada. It is an urban style field with a multitude of buildings, cars, vans and buses plus a few trees and terrain features thrown in for good measure.

Josh Gastelum Manager of Mission Paintball & Outdoor Adventure was excited to host event 3. "We have put a lot of work into the woodsball field to bring it up to the level needed to host the ATWL" said Gastemlum, "We look forward to the feedback about the field set up from the players so we can make it even better for future ATWL events."

As in previous seasons event 3 would mark the end of the regular season, but unlike other years event 3 would also be the first round of the 2012 playoffs. At the end of event 3 the fate of two teams would be decided; one team would get a bye to the championship finals and another team’s season would be over.

The top two teams in the league after two events, Predators and Anthraxx, would battle for the championship bye. The teams were evenly matched; each team won one game and only a difference of 70 capture points separated the combatants. Anthraxx came out the winners for the day, but were unable to overcome the Predators Capture Point total and had to settle for second place. The Mersey Road Predators were crowned winners of the regular season and received a bye to the championship final.

The afternoon games were the first round of playoffs. The four remaining teams played, the total Capture Points earned would determine the remainder and rankings of the final three championship positions. The team with the lowest number of Capture Points would be eliminated for the season.

After a fierce afternoon of play the Championship finals were decided. The Predators will be joined in the championship by Anthraxx, Nova Scotia Mercenaries and the SU Militia.

The 2012 championship will be played, and the ATWL Cup awarded, on October 13th, at Mersey Road Paintball in East River Nova Scotia.
