The votes have been counted and the results are clear: The Grifball community has named our local Forge Guru NOKYARD our 2015 Grifballer of the Year!
NOKYARD won by a wider margin than any Grifballer of the Year in the past. In 2015, he:
- Recreated Grifball maps from the Xbox 360 on the Master Chief Collection;
- Donated new maps for our 2015 RTX Kickstarter;
- Worked directly with 343 Industries as they developed Forge mode for Halo 5; and
- Worked directly with 343 Industries over several months as they created and refined Halo 5 Grifball and its courts.
NOKYARD has been involved with Grifball since 2008, when he started building better Grifball courts. He’s been a key point of contact for both Bungie and 343 Industries over the years when they have needed maps and gametypes for Grifball playlists in Halo 3, Halo: Reach, Halo 4, and Halo 5.
Thank you again to every who was voted Grifballer of the Month in 2015, and a special congratulations to 2015’s Grifballer of the Year, NOKYARD!
