Grifball's Lament

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

Grifball's Lament

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.

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 - 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.

Remember, Remember, the 5th of November...

Halo 4 launches in just over 24 hours now, immediately at the conclusion of November 5th.  We here at the NGA are ready for what might be the biggest midnight release day in all of video game history... are you?

Keeping that in mind, we haven't forgotten about you either - expect to hear a huge announcement from us this Sunday during the live stream of our second season Championship games!

Also of great importance, I feel it's our duty to remind all of you (at least those who are 18 and older) not to let Halo 4 release interfere with the Presidential elections which are being held the same day (Tuesday, November 6th - usually between 8am and 8pm).  Remember, voting is not just a right, it is an obligation we all have to make this society work...  Those who do not vote should also not complain!

Finally, let us all wish Halo Reach a happy retirement :).

Final September Events and League Update

The sun is setting earlier, and it's getting colder - summer is definitely gone. The NGA has you covered though, with plenty of reasons to stay inside. Here's what we have for the rest of September:

Saturday, September 22 - Tomorrow - The Impromptu Halo 3 BOMB 4PM Eastern

With the AGLA running its Halo 3 Grifball League as well as bouts of Halo nostalgia popping up all over the place in anticipation of Halo 4, we decided to throw together a quick BOMB to celebrate the beginnings of Grifball.

Signups are already open - click here to Register - and will remain open until a half hour before the event (3:30PM Eastern tomorrow.) Instead of thinking about a team to sign up, we should probably mention that for this event, we'll be doing individual signups and generating random teams. The point of this event is more fun than fierce competition; if we have a good turnout or hear of other interest, we'll definitely organize another Halo 3 BOMB in the weeks before Halo 4 releases. We'll even give you notice next time!

Wednesday, September 26 - BOMB: Grifpile:Extreme 9PM Eastern

If you've played Grifpile with us already, you know you love it. On a whim, we tried out a 4v4v4v4 version of Grifpile, and the results were, well, extreme. Now we're bringing it to the community to see what you think!

Signups for this event will open a few days earlier, and will be FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED for the first 16 people to sign up in our forums. We will also take signups for four alternates. With enough interest, we'd be more than happy to try and get a second lobby going. Once signups are full, we'll randomly select four captains to participate in a mini-draft to determine teams.

Saturday, September 29 - HaloTracker Staff Showdown 5PM Eastern

Cheer on your admin team as they go head to head with staff from HaloTracker. Details are still being worked out, but as long as it is half grifball, we promise to give them a run for their money!

In other news, we're almost done with the second week of our second season. Shadow has been working tirelessly on our new stats setup, which when done will very quickly clean up the backlog of games to be entered. We promise all stats will be current soon! Thanks for your patience.

Season 1 playoffs are finally finishing up as well. We've got two series left in the bracket, and they should be great matchups. Catch the streaming action on our new official channel, NGAGrifball ( and follow us on Twitch or on Twitter ( for instant stream updates!

That should do it for now. We'll be back soon with more info on our HaloTracker playdate as well as more upcoming fun. As always, please stop by with any suggestions, ideas, or other comments. We're also seeking writers with original ideas to be featured on the site - talk to SquirrelBurrito if you are interested.

BOMB: Random Reach Customs - Tonight at 10pm Eastern

Join us tonight at 10pm Eastern as we hold an informal BOMB playing some Random Reach Customs.

We've got a lot of fun Grifball (and Grif-related) gametypes for us to play if people want, along with some other [shooty] Reach favorites!  All participants will receive a player award on their profile here and over at HaloUNITY.

No registration required, just bring a hammer!  Those wanting to play should just send SquirrelBurrito a message or game invite before 10pm.
