Who is [RL-Tech] Workshop?
[RL-Tech] stands for RebelLion Tech, born in the begining of 2008 as a paintball team named RebelLion Guerrilla Squad, later shortened to [RL-Tech] in 2010. The more we got into the sport, growing as a team, the more we thought of doing big things for the community until finally it became a reality.
In 2011 we decided to give our two cents to the community via Youtube, our official website, a forum and recently Facebook. The more we heard the problems and concerns players had, the more we got involved. As we matured as a team we passed through many stages, lost many good players and recruited many new ones, until reaching the point where we stand today, becoming a place of go-and-ask, reviews, paintball news and advice.
Why [RL-Tech] goes MagFed?
MagFed isn’t just a game, at least not for us, MagFed is the salvation for paintall, every problem has a solution, and for us, MagFed is that solution. Our plan has three steps to introduce MagFed to the Mexican community since no one has done it before, and the same steps are the reason why we think Latin America should go Magfed.
A) A series of videos called “MagFed Talks”:
This are nothing but pure informative videos covering our viewers’ needs, as an example: a quick poll we did showed that the biggest barrier between players and paintball is an economic one, that’s why we launched a video with this topic in particular, an episode called: “The price of MagFed”, our goal was to eliminate some taboos about how expensive it was to play MagFed. With this series of videos we plan to cover products and prices as well as tactics and player experiences via interviews.
B) MagFed/Tac Cap games:
We know clearly that MagFed is “The New-old thing”, it’s not new, but is the thing of the moment in the world of Paintball and the people around our community get more interested day by day; combined with all the info we provide them a game is all we needed to get them hooked on MagFed.
C) Create MagFed players: Our goal is to create new MagFed players, literaly, so the staff (including me) has a challenge that involves every aspect of paintball (at least the way we see it)
In Mexico the number one reason for people to stop playing is the economic one, and this also applies to the player’s development, they are strictly attached to their local out-law field because they can’t afford to pay a field’s entry fee, and we strongly believe that all these people are potentially excellent players. (At this point you may know what I was aiming for by launching “The price of MagFed”) That’s when limited rounds come in, creating a limited rounds culture not only improves their game play by eliminating the classic spray and pray, but helps every player’s wallet since they are now using less paint and less air, and the beauty doesn’t stop there, now as they are saving while having fun they are able to afford better quality paint and now maybe even the entry fees to their local field.
The local fields:
We have been trying to create a link between the fields and the players, we as a group have been going to different fields around La Baja, doing reviews of the fields, trying to give our humble opinion, some have extended a friendly hand to [RL-Tech] allowing us to create events at special prices, first class paintball at economic prices, discount on entry fees, and the list goes on. Working together with players and field owners, [RL-Tech] has created what the Mexican paintball community has been praying for.
Our two cents:
At this point of the project we have a player that thinks MagFed is the solution to his problems and a few field owners that are willing to help, all we needed was to put them together and create a MagFed game, as a goal and a challenge for us, creating new MagFed players goes further, we have signed a compromise to give away a MagFed marker in every MagFed event, it couldn’t be better, we may be doing something no one has done before.
This is what [RL-Tech] Workshop has been doing along the road, introducing MagFed paintball to the Mexican community, not because of the game itself or how popular it’s becoming, but all the benefits that it comes with, from our point of view, the salvation of paintball… the solution to a problem.
