The Grifball community is a never-tiring machine that constantly strives to make the sport even better. Every season the community works hard to improve the Grifball experience on the court, and this season is no exception!
The latest and greatest Grifball settings are now available. Thanks to feedback from many members of the community, and the hard work of everyone who has improved the gametype since launch (and 343 Industries before then!), we have a new Grifball gametype for our Spring 2013 season.
GGL SL2013 Grifball is five untimed rounds of Grifball action. Auto-pickup is turned off for this gametype, so you need to hold down the action/reload button (usually X) to pick up the ball. This is the default gametype for the season. Unless both captains in a match agree to use another gametype, this is the one you will use for all your games.
GGL SL2013 – Catch is also available on the fileshare of Kalbelgarion. This gametype is also five untimed rounds, but it has auto-pickup turned on. This means the ball functions like it does in the default ‘Grifball’ gametype in matchmaking. If you are near the ball, you will automatically pick it up. All other settings between this and the default gametype are identical. Teams may use this gametype in their GGL games if both captains in the match agree.
GGL SL2013 – 9 Rounds is the second alternative gametype for the GGL SL2013 season, also available on the fileshare of Kalbelgarion. This gametype has nine untimed rounds with auto-pickup turned off. It is identical to the default gametype, except there are four more rounds to play! Instead of the victor being the team that scores three or more goals, it’s the team that scores five or more. Teams may use this gametype in their GGL games if both captains in the match agree.
Teams may also use any other Grifball gametype for their matches, if they would like, as long as both captains agree. As long as it’s a gametype that comes from the ‘Grifball’ menu, and both captains agree to use it, it’s all right by the league!
Thin Ice is available on the fileshare of Kalbelgarion. Like the gametypes above, there are two ways to download it:
Thin Ice-NHL and Someday Night Grifball are two maps also available on the fileshare of Kalbelgarion. These maps are for live-streaming Grifball games. Do not use these maps unless you are live-streaming the game, you have both captains’ permission, both teams are familiar with the setup, and you know how to use them properly.
Teams may also use any other Grifball map for their matches, if they would like, as long as both captains agree. A good place to look for alternative maps is in the matchmaking playlist. You can also use any of the maps that are posted to our Grifball map collection. Both captains must agree on the alternative when using a map other than Thin Ice, however.
As always, please let us know if you have any questions about the gametype, the map, or anything regarding the league.
See you on the court!
