On February 22nd 2014 The Seattle Ninjas paintball Club brings Ninjaball back to the great pacific northwest. Teams from Oregon, Idaho, and Washington gathered at DBS outdoor paintball park in Snohomish WA for a good old fashioned soggy paintball showdown. The action was quick to jump off with D4 teams thunder, and DBS Flood having strong showings respectively in their morning games. The beginner division was also much more competitive than I expected for a D5 bracket, OP-CKB, won all four of their first round points, and DBSpaintball.com and Northwest Mercenaries only droped one.
The mid morning round saw a change in the tide for some of the teams. While Flood continued their good play, it was Thunder's Gold squad that swept the second round to set up a third round and a chance at the finals. In division 5 the Northwest Mercenaries also won all of their second round games. Most of the third round was not needed because of the race to 2 format used at ninjaball.
Top four in each division were taken to the final rounds and after the dust settled it was the Northwest mercenaries with a hard fought victory over OP-CKB to win the D5 title. DBSpaintball.com place third over the Sportsmanship award winners N'Control. In division 4 DBS Flood and Thunder Gold played for first with Thunder Gold coming out on top. Thunder "premium" beat out DBS tsunami for third place.
All in all the day was full of great moves, good calls, and one of the smoothest running events I have ever been a part of. Carlos Rodriguez and his Ninjas put on a great event and everyone that is in the greater Northwest area should really consider making Ninjaball a can't miss tournament. Check out the photo gallery
