Grifball's Lament

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

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.

It has begun.  Can you feel it?  This is Grifball.  The time has come.  Now we unite with our friends, align with our allies, and position against our rivals...

This is Grifball

Happy Birthday, NGA!

One year ago today - on May 20th, 2012 - Grifball.net 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.

NGA Spring League '13 Playoffs

Playoffs are here!

We apologize for the long delay in starting playoffs - a situation arose where the fairness of a game was in question, which required a long time to sort out. Since it would directly affect playoff seeding, we wanted to resolve the situation as fairly and thoroughly as possible. Luckily, it's all finished now, and we are set to begin.

PROFESSIONAL LEAGUE

The National Grifball Association's Spring League 2013 (Season 4) Pro League Playoffs will be single elimination format, with each series being the best 2 out of three games. The submission deadline is Friday, July 26th, 2013 at 11:59:59 PM Pacific time for the first round, and the subsequent Friday for each subsequent round. Captains are in charge of contacting each other and scheduling their games before the deadline for the round - if an issue arises, please contact an admin. Streaming is mandatory, but will be arranged and provided for you based on the time slot you select (let us know if you need a day/time not listed, we can probably work something out).

AMATEUR LEAGUE

The National Grifball Association's Spring League 2013 (Season 4) Amateur League Playoffs will be single elimination format, with each series being the best 2 out of three games. The submission deadline is Friday, July 26th, 2013 at 11:59:59 PM Pacific time for the first round, and the subsequent Friday for each subsequent round. Captains are in charge of contacting each other and scheduling their games before the deadline for the round - if an issue arises, please contact an admin. Streaming is optional for the Amateur League Playoffs, but if you would like to be streamed, please use the website's Playoff Scheduling form to request a streamer.

Other Information

ALL PRO LEAGUE GAMES (and any Amateur League games that you want to be streamed) must be scheduled using the Playoff Scheduling form at Grifball.net, so please contact an admin if you are having trouble using it. Neutral Hosts are optional but strongly recommended for both Pros and Amateurs - let us know on the scheduling form if you want one and we'll try to set an agreeable one up for you. Only SquirrelBurrito and NetsPride15 are authorized to stream NGA games, but, like previously stated, we will take care of arranging the streaming as long as you fill out your Playoff Scheduling form.

The default maps and gametypes will remain the same (captains may still agree to play on another gametype, but the league may request that it be renamed during streamed games) as it has been during the regular season, EXCEPT for streamed games which will all default to being played on the map NGA Streamcast Stadium, available on shadowxtc's fileshare - with an alternate option being Season 3's NGA Realism NH.

To everybody participating in this season's playoffs, good luck, and thank you for sticking with the NGA (land of the free and home of the brave)!

What's happening here?  Judging from the background, and how dark it is, I believe this is one of the original versions of Sarge's Lab, perhaps even the stock map "Grifball Court" on the game disc. I'm not sure where the light that's hitting Grif from underneath is coming from - it might actually be the ball itself - but it certainly makes the scene. This is definitely one of my favorites, a serious contender for the "Most Dramatic Pose" category. Originally titled "grifgold" - if anybody recognizes any of these, feel free to inform me of who the creator is... or even better informthemthat their work is being put on display for everyone's enjoyment!

Grifball's Lament

GRIFBALL'S LAMENT

I once was the bomb,
Now merely a ball.
A skull in a blue glow,
I fly, then I fall.

No longer quite feared,
I'm tossed side to side.
Grif calls out for a pass,
And his teammates just hide.

I've gone from Assault
To the realm of First Touch.
I beg you to hold me;
It's not asking too much.

Some may call it griefing,
But it shows me you care.
If you love me, statpad me;
Don't score - if you dare.

What's happening here?  It might look blurry at first, as if someone applied a blur filter, or maybe it's just low resolution, right?  Wrong.  Take a look at the red lightning, and a few areas around where the hammer's orb of destruction eminates - crisp and clear.  So what gives?  Well, besides the poor soul on the red team getting obliterated so beautifully, a bomb was just detonated - that's the source of the red lightning.  When this happens, a shockwave of distortion erupts outward from the bomb plant - you may or may not notice it while you're playing, some see it as just a flash of light - but in Theater, it causes some beautiful results.
