NXL WORLD CUP 2021
For those of you that have never been to NXL World Cup, it is a massive four day event held in Orlando at the Gaylord Palms Resort. Teams come from around the world to compete to see who will be the best in their league and division. There are all the major vendors you all know including GI Sportz, HK Army, Planet Eclipse, DYE, etc. So this also make it a good time to do some shopping if you need it. As for the fields there are about 12 playing fields to keep things constantly in motion. According to NXL staff this was the most competitive year to date.
Now on to the good stuff! Black Ops had a couple sponsored teams play in the event and all did their very best. Our very own first time World Cup players Chris Papamichail and Mark Roseman spent some time in the pro pits for San Diego Aftermath and then him and the Carolina Doughboys made an attempt at 3-man open division and came out pretty strong beating a dozen teams. Carolina Voodoo entered in D4 5-man with only 6 players and almost no pit crew. These boys came out ready to ball. Each game they played with extreme focus and precision and unshakeable teamwork. There even came a point where a sudden death was necessary and it had everyone on the edge of their seat almost not even breathing but Voodoo came out victorious. As they moved on to the pro field for the final match, they stayed just as calm and focused as before and easily took home the win.
They are and forever will be the 1st Black Ops Paintball team not only to podium but to take home the gold! Great job boys and keep up the good work!
As always we thank our Major sponsor Gi Sportz they keep the best paint in our pods! Also shoutout to our sponsors Black Rifle Coffee and Salty Turtle Beer
