NV vs UT vs ID TRIAD Challenge!! Nevada Utah and Idaho face off for the fight of their lives!!
Posted 05 January 2009 - 09:35 AM
I must say that I was extremely surprised that NV and ID adapted to this format so fast. UT has played this format for 3 years now and we know how it works and how hard fought the battles are.
The next leg of this series is in Utah in April (18th) and Desert Edge will be hosting it so we will not be playing. Im making this call out for all the UT teams that can make this event to please come out and help keep this trophy in UT!!! With the showing that NV had and ID so close Utah will need all the guns we can get to win.
PROPS to every one for some of the BEST paintball I have EVER seen!!!
See you in April!!!

Utah is looking to be even bigger. Nevada is really wanting to push to take possession of the Title Plaque. So, a good number from Vagas are making a run for the Utah Triad. I hope to see Idaho represented well too. Many of you are familiar with the terrain. It is the same field we held Triad 08 on.
Some new developments will be announced to brigade members in the next few days, so stay tuned.

WHO WILL DOMINATE??
The format is simple: three teams (NV, UT, ID), three base flags and a center flag. Teams get a point for each minute their color is raised. The game has three rounds (one hour each) and a final battle--with the base flags removed. Teams rotate bases between rounds so each team gets the chance to attack and defend each flag.
With a format so simple, teams need to have a game plan a bit more complex. Branching out too far, assaulting too many bases while fighting against one team, may mean getting back-doored by the other team. clustering up and defending just one flag could cost you the game.
The dates and locations are as follows
Jan 3rd in Mesquite NV
Apr 18th in Eagle Mountain UT
OPT IN HERE
Aug 15th in ID (Field to be determined)
OPT IN HERE (Coming Soon)
COST: $25 Pre Registration and $35 at the field the day of.

This will be an ongoing rival/challenge every year traveling from NV to UT to ID. This is certain to become the event to attend each and every year.
Register early to ensure your victory!!
Here is the link in the North West Brigade section
More information coming soon.
The TRIAD is one of the most exciting yet simplest formats ever created. Why? Here’s why!
The field is laid out with a total of 4 flags and played with 3 Teams on the field at the same time. Each team has a base flag.
Then a center flag that is Black (neutral)
All the flags have all 4 colors on it in a pinwheel style. The object of the game is to control more flags for longer than the other two teams. For every min you control the flag your team gets 1 point. Any and all flags are able to be captured and controlled by any team. There are no other objectives, only capturing and controlling as many flags as you can for as long as you can.
During the game there will be a “Respawn” every 15 min. The respawn is a type of “Rebirth”. All players that have died in the game that have made it back to their given teams “Dead Box” is able to reenter the game as a live player. There is a 1 min buffer for respawn. If a player does not make it back to the dead box when the respawn horn blows that player still has a 1 min buffer after the horn blows where if he makes it back to the dead box he can still respawn with the other players.
After every one hour of play there will be a 30 min break and then the teams will rotate one base. This will happen 3 times giving each team the opportunity to defend each base.
After 3 hours of play and each team has rotated to each base there will be a 30 min break then the FINAL BATTLE. The Final Battle will be 30 min long and there will be only 1 active flag for capturing, the center flag. All three teams will battle for control of the center flag their last ditch effort for points.
The team with the most points at the end of the game WINS!
