Confucius Art of War - Paintball Style

The Sun Tzu’s Art of War… one of the most famous and ancient Chinese military strategy of all time which has been used for over 2000 years. Many Great War generals, strategists and tacticians have adopted the use of these great strategies to win battles and conquered great terrains. In modern times, big corporate organizations have used these strategies to influence business expansions. Since paintball has this little piece of war theme ongoings, wouldn’t it be great to use some of these famous tactics on the field and see if they really work!

As I ran a search on Google with keywords such as “Paintball” with “Sun Tzu’s Art of War”, I was unable to find similar results with these keywords and so I thought… why not an article on this, since I belong to the great descendent of the ancient Chinese and has fine Chinese blood running through my veins but more importantly, I play paintball too! And for disclaimer purposes, I am a Singaporean and no great tactician of the game, like it or not, here goes:

1)    If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.

In another words, have you profile your opponents? You can train a thousand days but all you need is to play a great game in 8 minutes. While you can train and train and train… are you able to understand the strengths and weaknesses of your opponents? I have heard this a million times on the field and the conversation usually goes like this: “Which team are we playing next?” and someone from the team will usually reply: “Let’s not care about who are up against, let’s just do your best!”

Are you sure, you don’t want to know who you are playing against in the next game? The great saying always tells us to plan early. This is because, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Knowing your opponents always allow you to set your mental game plan and know who you are up against. Study every single moves of your opponent. Understand how they dive, crawl, shoot, run, slide… every single move must be on your finger tips.

2)    The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.

Ever seen the giant tanks and warships parading in front of the crowd during a National Day Parade? Never knew that these military weapons ever existed in Singapore? The real purpose behind parading these great war machines during peace time is what we commonly known as psychology defence. In another words, it serves as a form of deterrence to hostility and thus ensuring security peace and harmony. So how is this related to paintball?

Don’t just think of what you can do to win games during events but instead think of what you can do outside of tournament days to promote your team so that your team can have half the battle won before the buzzer goes off. In summary, let your team name strike fear into the hearts of your opponents. If you are a great fan of the English soccer, how does it sound to play against the once great Manchester United Football Club?

3)    Opportunities multiply as they are seized.

I like to relate this as “move whenever you shoot a player out”. Great players seize this opportunity to move and play the game to their advantage. If you shot a player in the field, it is always the best time to move up the field. And why is this so? Personally, I guess this is the time (maybe 5 seconds frame) when your remaining live opponents are unaware about his teammate being eliminated and might not have his eyes onto you thus allowing you a space to bump up the bunker.

4)    Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look on them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death.

In summary, train your players hard and well before any event. I have seen many teams falling apart after many good years together. They started playing the game together but often than not unable to see each other out until the end. Many teams come and go and some only playing whenever there is an event and thereafter players go missing for a couple of months only to catch up again 1 week before the event. To keep a team together, more has to be done off the field. Everyone has to eat somehow or another… but not everyone allocates a time to eat together as a team. Sad story… Meet up more other than just meeting up at the field might help the team to bond and get their act right in the field. Know your teammates better and half the battle won.

5)    Prohibit the taking of omens, and do away with superstitious doubts. Then, until death itself comes, no calamity need be feared.

“I have a feeling that the referee is marking me”
“The base referee is very particular about my marker touching the frame”
“The referee is new and he makes bad call all the time”

Sounds familiar?

Post Singapore Paintball Series disorder syndrome!

The Singapore Paintball Series (SPS) 2013 Leg 2 was held at The Cage Sports Park on 7 & 8 October 2013. A total of 33 teams participated in the event with a legion of overseas players from Malaysia, Brunei, Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand. Malaysia All Female Team, Siren made their first appearance in the SPS with other Malaysia teams such as Team Throne and WTF Dragonz from Penang and Kuala Lumpur respectively. The SPS which was formerly known as the Singapore Paintball Novice Series (SPNS) from 2008 - 2009 is Singapore's oldest and most established paintball tournmaent which focuses on paintball development and promotion in Singapore. The SPS provides a competitive platform for local and overseas paintball enthusiasts to compete on a friendly ground and to pit their skills against one another. "Paintball sport in Singapore has progressed over the years, it is imperative for us to continue to nurture this sport and introduce this game to as many people as we can" exclaimed Jane Koh, SPS Tournament Director.

Team ZOO which claimed the Champion position in SPS Leg 1 took the SPS Open Division Overall Champion Title after their final game against Throne from Malaysia. In the Bratpack Division 3 category, Team A.C.E.S with their consistent performance whole year round won the Overall Series Champion Title. Hellions SG from Division 4 took the top honours when they finished with a double champion by cliniching the Leg Champion and the Overall Series Champion for Division 4.

This leg of the event was also well supported by various corporate sponosors such as Bratpack, Sanuk, Timbuk2, SPY, Dye Asia, Advantage Sports Therapy Centre, Red Dynasty Paintball Park, Paintballers World Pro Shop, Grundy Sports Supplies, Anthrax Customs and Universal AV Pte Ltd who contributed generously with their wonderful products and services.

"We would like to thank all corporate sponsors who recognizes our effort in promoting and developing this sport in Singapore. We hope for more corporate sponsors to step forward to support our passion for paintball. We have a passionate community in paintball sport and the SPS is a good platform for everyone to come together and enjoy the game" said Ben Seow, SPS Tournament Promoter.

The SPS Organizing has several plans in stored for next year, first in the plan for 2014 is to fill the Singapore calendar with more paintball events so that players can practice and compete on a more regular basis. There are plans to adopt another new format competition in 2014. The committee also have plans to work closely with local paintball operators so that the sport can be developed through a unification body such as the SPS.

10 great tips for paintball!

Just came back from a tournament and thought that perhaps I can jot down some of the things which went through my head this weekend so more people can benefit from our experiences:

1)     Always stick to the game plan. We spent time off the field talking about the biggest game plan to counter our opponents but how many players can actually stick to what is instructed of them? The game plan involved the entire team coming together to put off the greatest offense or defense and all it takes is one player to disregard the game plan and everything falls apart. So in future, if there is a game plan, do your best to stick to it. The plan involves the team and not just the individual. Of course, there is room for you to do other stuff but do your best to follow the game plan.

2)     Be versatile. To be a good player, one has to understand the fundamentals of playing in different positions in the field. Yes, when you first started the game, there is often than not a preferred position which you want to be in but that does not mean that you have to stick to that position all the time. As the game progresses, you are required to do more than just playing behind the same bunker. Being able to play in all positions and in all bunkers not only allow you to understand the roles and responsibilities of each playing position but also help you to step up to the role in critical time of the game.

3)     Understand the objective of paintball. How can you win games? Firstly, you can eliminate all opposing players in the field. Secondly, you can hang the flag or in the case of race-2 you push the buzzer. Assuming you ran out of paintballs or you ran out of air in your tank or your marker is down, how can you still win the game? The answer is obvious; you hang the flag or press the buzzer. So if you are behind a bunker and not wanting to go for the flag or the buzzer what will become of you? A sitting duck I say. You are not contributing to the team and thus not able to win games. In summary, do something and don’t just sit there. Human shield perhaps.

4)     Gun skills. Treat the marker as though it is part of you. Be comfortable with holding the marker using both hands. Think of it as part of you and so allows for great maneuver.

5)     Don’t take more than 3 seconds to load your paintballs. Learn to load your marker while shooting. Learn to load your marker without putting it down. Learn to load your marker fast. Simple principles to holding down a lane and not wanting your opponent to bump while you are off guard. Remember when your marker is out there shooting, you are suppressing your opponent and higher possibility of winning games than not shooting.

6)     Be sneaky sneaky. Yes, the sneakier you are the more kills you get. Keep shooting at your opponent will definitely stop them from moving up to the next bunker. By stopping them from doing that, you can never get the elimination that you want. Understand when to shoot and when not too shoot. Constant shooting doesn’t necessary means its good. When you create opportunity for your opponents to move, you lure them into your kill zone and that is when you make the hunt.

7)     Be a hunter who can also be a prey. Lure your opponents and hunt them down. Change your technique when necessary. A hunter needs to prey but he too can sometimes be the bait. Players need to understand their roles at each course of the game by seeing the bigger picture behind the team’s win. When in good position to become bait, it is often good to make a hunter out of your teammate and let them make the kill.

8)     Understand the rules. A player can only play the game better if he/she understands every single rule in the game. Just as any sport, you need to use the rules to your advantage. Likewise in paintball, understanding the rules will allow the player to fully appreciate everything there is to the game and thus change their decision of the game play according to their advantage. Where time is a factor to win games, one need to plan and play out their strategy according to the game duration.

9)     Open your eyes and listen. Use your ears and listen to your coach and supporters. They are always out there giving you vital information to close the game. Don’t hesitate to move when you are instructed to do so, make sure you follow to your coach instructions. As they say, the outsiders’ view is always clearer.

10)  Read your opponent’s game. Don’t just sit in the pits and do nothing. Spend time observing each and every team which you are going to play. Observe how your opponent team breaks out, do they play the snake? Do they stack up at home? Do they have corner runners? Do they run up the middle? Observe and take notes, especially observing every movement of your opponent. Reading your opponent’s move can give you the upper edge.

There you have it! 10 great tips for your next outing! Have fun!

Singapore Paintball Series 2012 Post Event Report

“They say if people don’t know about your game, bring your game to them” and that is exactly what the organizers of the Singapore Paintball Series (SPS) did on 6th and 7th October 2012 at The Promontory@Marina Bay.

In partnership with Buona Vista Youth Executive Committee (YEC), the SPS was held next to Singapore’s busiest finance hub in the Central Business District. For the first time in Singapore’s history, the sport of paintball was introduced to the city dwellers and our boys and girls stepped up to the test and gave their best shot on the paintball field. Presented as the SHOOTOUT! Sports Carnival, the SPS together with Singapore’s newest futsal centre, Golazo, collaborated in this sport awareness carnival. The aim of the project was to showcase the best of both paintball sport and futsal. Witnessed by Mr. Chan Chun Sing - Acting Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports & Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Defence, players were in high spirits as they competed in this 2-day event. A total of 29 teams participated in the 2nd series of the SPS and amongst these teams were players from Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Brunei, Thailand and Taiwan.

Red Sevens, which won the Open Division Championship Title in 2011, fielded a roster with an “international flair” for Leg 2 of the SPS with players from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Taiwan. Playing for their first time together, the Red Sevens II team scored a clean sheet throughout the tournament without dropping a single point to its opponents. The Open Division Finals against Team Ballistics saw a close shave to their 100% win when Ballistics put up an amazing display of paintball techniques and strategies to counter the Red Sevens II team. Team Ballistics, led by Benny Neo and Hiroyuki Hosokawa, had a strong international flair with support by notable players from Grammaton Clerics (current Malaysia Paintball Official Circuit 2012 Division 2 Overall Champion) and Nicky Lim from Malaysia. With an exciting line-up, Team Ballistics was determined to fight for the Singapore title. Eventually, it was the Red Sevens II team who took the honour and defended their Championship Title making them the first team in Singapore to win a back-to-back Overall Champion Title in 2011 and 2012.

8 teams participated in the Division 3 category and amongst them is Team Kingdom from Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Team Kingdom is a newly formed team and, with most of its players working in Singapore, it was a unified decision to make Team Kingdom the first overseas team to compete in the full tournament of the SPS. While new to the Singapore paintball scene, Team Kingdom was quick to adapt to the cultural differences and made an impact in their debut. Ranked as the 3rd qualifier after 5 rounds of high intense Race-to-2 Format with local teams, Team Kingdom outplayed The Outlaws II and Team Enraged in the Semi Finals and Finals games respectively making them the first ever overseas team to be crowned the Singapore Paintball Series Division 3 Champion.

In Division 4, 10 teams took on the challenge including newly formed teams such as Decerto, Raging Phoenix, Blitzkrieg Strumtruppen, Red Sevens D4, Heartbreakids and SP Delta. Chaos Killers who had a quiet outing on Day 1 and ranked 4th from SPS Leg 1 made their way to the Finals against first timer team - Red Sevens D4. Eventually, it was game experience and teamwork which prevailed and led the team to win their first Championship title in Division 4.
“We are delighted to see the great turnout for this event. The Promontory@Marina Bay is a great venue for us to promote and create awareness for the sport of paintball. Throughout the 2-day event, we have many curious passersby who stopped in their tracks and watched the competition. We are proud to have Singapore’s most iconic setting – Marina Bay Sands - as the Singapore Paintball Series backdrop which adds to the beauty of game.” said SPS Tournament Promoter, Ben Seow.

SPS is also supported by several vendors who showed their generosity by providing free samples and complimentary services for participants of the SHOOTOUT! event and they are (in no special order): Force 21 Equipment, Advantage Sports Therapy, Banana Boat, Aquarius Isotonic Drink, THORB, Dye Asia, Bottle Tree Park, PaintballNewsAsia, Red Dynasty Paintball Park, Buona Vista YEC, TILT, URA, Marina Bay Link Mall, Golazo and Ministry of Football, King Ang Images.

With a total of 25 participating teams, the SPS introduced several changes to the 2012 edition with the RaceTo2 Format as the most significant change. For the first time in Singapore paintball history, Open Division and Division 3 games was held in the ever popular RaceTo Format which is accordance to International paintball regulations such as the Paintball Asia League Series (PALS) and the Millennium Series in Europe. New to SPS2 012 is the introduction of the 2012 version of the Millennium Series bunkers which has 3 new bunkers, the Elbow, the Mini-M and the Beam. Led by SPS Referee Azhar and SPS Referee Manager Idi, the SPS Referees took on the role of “Big Brother” to officiate in their first national paintball tournament without the aid of overseas guest referees. “Our SPS Referees understand their roles and responsibilities in the development of paintball in Singapore and stood up to the test. The SPS Referees belongs to an important part of the overall competition growth as we continue to improve their involvement in the series” exclaimed SPS Tournament Promoter, Ben Seow who is also an advisor for the SPS Referees. SPS Referee, Muhd Razak who is commonly known as Zak was selected as the SPS Referee of the tournament when he displayed commitment and precise judgement when officiating. The SPS Referee medal is newly introduced to acknowledge our referee’s competency in paintball refereeing during the event.

 Contract Killers SG took the third spot as they outplayed Red Sevens I in the 3rd/4th placing playoff. In Division 3, it was Team Blitzkrieg which took the Champion title against an exhilarating matchup against The Outlaws I which has been on a winning form in 2012. Blitzkrieg which many claim to be one of the most hardworking team in Singapore stormed through the qualification round as the second qualifier behind The Outlaws I. Raving Lunatics claimed the 3rd position when they outclassed Heartbreakers in the 3rd/4th placing playoff. Heartbreakers which was named the Overall Champion for SPS 2011 played in their first Division 3 tournament and showed their class as a worthy opponent.

Teams that are registered with the SPS are invited to share their comments and suggestions to further improve the current state of paintball sport in Singapore.” said Ben Seow, SPS Tournament Promoter.

Heartbreakers Paintball Team goes a mile to show their love!


Team Captain, Kenny Leow


Clair Laire Faire, Derek

They might be known as the Heartbreakers but these boys sure do know how to show their love! Inspired by Team Captain Kenny Leow, the team decided to go for a day out not at the regular paintball field but to Woodlands Bloodbank... yes, to donate blood. A unique outing I must say. On why the team decided "to give" instead of "to inflict", Kenny exclaimed: "This is a good opportunity for everyone to come together and contribute to the society, this is for a good cause!" And yes, we do agree. Perhaps the Heartbreakers can initiate a blood donation drive for the local paintball community to showcase the warmth and love amongst the local players.

Having won the 2011 Overall Novice Division Champion, the Heartbreakers is one of Singapore's most promising paintball team. The team meets up regularly at sport stadium for core exercises such as long duration exercises with short explosive drills. When asked about promoting to the Open Division, Kelly exclaimed that something is in the works and they will soon be playing in the higher divisions. Preparations are underway to move to the big stage.

We wish them all the best and hope that every team in Singapore can follow this healthy and meaningful trend!
