Earlier this week, the Grifball matchmaking playlist received an update that expanded the Grifball experience by introducing 4 new gametypes and 9 new maps. And there was much rejoicing. While the new additions add some variation, a pinch of spice and a whole lot of lolz, there are some who prefer a more competitive, classic kind of Grifball. For those who seek the true nature of the Grif, your time is nigh.
Yesterday, the American Grifball League of America announced the opening of Summer League ’11. The league runs for five weeks, with every team playing two games a week on their assigned night. Games are played in custom matches and use either the Vanilla or Dash variants. The league is split into two distinct smaller leagues – Pro and Amateur. The Pro League is comprised of Grifball veterans with a lust for intense competition. The Amateur League is made up of first-time and newer teams as well as experienced squads.
Think you’ve got what it takes to play in the AGLA? If so, your first step on your way to Grifball greatness is to sign your team up – and here’s how:
To sign up, send an email to [email protected] with all of the following information:
*Grifball.com Link to your team’s page:
*Preferred Gametype: Dash (Sprint & Evade) or Vanilla (no Armor Abilities)
*Are you applying for the Pro League: (Yes or no. If yes, please still include 3 of the division choices listed below in the event you don’t make the cut.)
*Preferred Divisions: Your divisional choices will be the top 3 times you’d like to play at on a weekly basis for the next month-and-a-halfish. All these times are tentative. Depending on how many teams sign up more divisions may be added. We will try our best to get you your top choice for your divisions, but please try and pick the only 3 times you can play, so we can at least get you one of them. ~Menz
After you’ve signed up for the league, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with the AGLA Stats Site.
