Grifball's Lament

Life through the eyes of the Grifball in Halo 4. An awesome Grifball poem written by the even more awesome SquirrelBurrito.

Chaos Courts: Alpha

A powerful AI hacked our servers last night and some interesting information was left behind in the forums about the NGA's SL13 Pro map.

This is Grifball

Happy Birthday, NGA!

One year ago today - on May 20th, 2012 - and the National Grifball Association were launched and for better or worse, we're still here today! SquirrelBurrito set up a thread for us all to take a walk down memory lane and share our favorite NGA stories.

Join us this Thursday, February 7th at 8PM Eastern for our next BOMB, the WE WANT YOU! Draft. The event will feature single player registration, and teams will be chosen in a live draft in the NGA chatbox commencing at 8PM. We expect the draft to take about thirty minutes. If you are interested in being a captain, you must indicate this in your registration, and be ready in the NGA chatbox by 7:45.

After the draft, players will be invited by their captain, and gameplay will begin immediately. Each team will have a roster of 5 players, and captains will be expected to rotate their players if all of them are ready to play. If a team is eliminated from the tournament before all players on a team get play, the players with no games will be returned to the pool of available players in the case of teams dropping to less than three players. To prevent team stacking, we may assign a replacement player before you may choose your own.

With eight or more teams participating, the bracket will be single elimination, with a three game series for the final match with neutral host encouraged. Depending on the availability of streaming admins, we may ask that the final series be streamed.

The winning team in each matchup must submit their game link through the regular Game Submission form. We'd love to have a large turnout, so gather your friends, teammates, and make sure to spread the word in matchmaking as well. This is a great chance to get rookies involved, meet new people, and most importantly, play some great games.

In the event that we have enough players register to make nine or more teams, there will be a chance to win Microsoft Points:

  • Each person who plays in at least one game will get one entry.
  • Players who are unable to play because their team lost in the first round will also receive an entry if we have proof (in the form of a private message on XBox Live) that they were ready to play.
  • For each match that a team wins, all active players on that team will receive one additional entry.
  • Every active player on the final two teams will receive one additional entry.
  • Every active player on the championship team will receive two additional entries.
  • At the end of the event, players who were unable to play because their team lost in the first round and were not assigned to a different team will also receive an entry, but only if we have proof that they were ready to play. (The best proof would be in the form of a private message on XBox Live or a post to the event's forum thread - this should be done as soon as your team begins to play its first match.)

After all the games have been played - and if the requirement of nine teams is met - at least one winner will be chosen through a random drawing and will receive a code for 800 Microsoft Points, but we will likely be giving away two codes to two lucky people. More entries means a higher chance you'll be a winner!

Hope to see you all there!

Saturday at 8pm ET: Vanilla Draft BOMB

Join us tomorrow (Saturday, November 3rd at 8pm Eastern) for our FINAL Reach BOMB while it's still king.  We'll be playing NGA Vanilla V1 on NGA Fury, but this time it will be a draft tournament!  Players will register individually, and then at 8pm the Admins will announce which players will be Captains, and those players will be invited to a party chat (or we may use the website chatbox) to hold a draft to choose players for each team.  Let's send Reach off in style - how could we end with anything else?  Goodbye, Reach.  We will miss you!

This will be a DRAFT tournament - players register individually.  Game statistics will count towards your player career record.  All participants will receive an award on their player page, winners will receive even more :).  Registration is open until 8pm Saturday - the draft will begin just afterwards and games should begin between 8:30 and 9pm ET.
