Team MacDev Ronin finishes 4th Place @ World Cup Asia (26th -28th Nov) and named “WCA Best Malaysian Team 2010”

Team MacDev Ronin finished the year on a high note by coming out 4th Place at the recent World Cup Asia @ Padang Merbok, Kuala Lumpur (MALAYSIA)! In a total of 16 teams from Australia, Iran, Thailand, France, Germany, South Africa, United Kingdom and Malaysia, we managed to survive the onslaught of many of these top teams in the Asian region and some parts of the world. On top of that we were also awarded the “WCA BEST NATION TEAM”, which was sweeter than when we won “BEST PAINTBALL CLUB” in 2008 which we also finished 2nd Place in the WCA! We would like to thank all who helped us during this tournament ~ Ash, Adrian, Andi (Sabah), Team Rock & Rolla, Luke & Griffin (Team STK) ~ we would not have made it if it was not for you guys, you guys were awesome! I would like to specially like to thank Julian and Hafez (Sabah) for helping out with the MD Tech Booth giving support to all of our MacDev Militia members!!!

Special thanks to the organizers of the WCA, ref, technical crews, etc. We also would like to thank our sponsors who believed in us after all these years ~ MacDev Australia (Dianne, Bourke & James), Paintball TAG (Bernard), Napshot (Paul, Nicholas & Kevin), Sabah Paintball Association (Eddy & Hafez), and lastly our new sponsor from Empire who will be gearing us up for 2011!

My warmest heart felt thanks to a team who has gone through thick and thin as a Ronin family through out the year to give such awesome results by appearing in 4 finals in the MPOC league, MPOC (2nd Leg) (1st Place), Sabah Youth Cup (1st Place), Kuching CM Cup (4th Place) & World Cup Asia (4th Place). You guys rock ~ Julian, Oden, Shamsher, Romanoff, Bernard, Greg, Ash, Andi, Izrol, Adrian Joitol (Sabah), Eddy (Sabah), Andi (Sabah) and to our extended Ronin family Luke Martin & Griffin Lumbers (STK) and Lars, Andreas, Joel & Hendrick (Stockholm Ignition).

Thank you to all of our friends who supported us during all of our tournaments this year, SEE YOU ALL IN 2011! Come and play in the best national league in Malaysia the MALAYSIAN PAINTBALL OFFICIAL LEAGUE (MPOC) 2011!!!
