Hey Everyone! Thanksgiving is right around the corner and the holiday season will be here before you know it. The holidays end the year with a bang so we’re going to do something special here at GrifballHub to finish off 2016. Starting December 6th, the first ever End of the Year Grifball Giveaway will take place.
What is the End of the Year Grifball Giveaway?
The Grifball Giveaway is a series of six rushes that will end with a giveaway to one lucky winner. To have your name entered into the giveaway, all you have to do is play in one of the six rushes. Playing games will reward you with points and the number of times your name is entered into the giveaway is determined by the total number of points you have.
The winner of the giveaway will win a Turtlebeach Headset of their choice! Anything up to $100 is valid which will include headsets for any platform and all of the refurbished options as well.
When are the rushes and how do I play in them?
The schedule for the event is listed below, remember you only have to play once to get your name entered into the giveaway, but the more you play, the higher chance you have to win! You can sign up with a team or individually. Players who sign up individually will be put into a pool with the other players who did the same and teams will be made at random. If there are leftover players after the teams are made, these players will be available to sub in for any team and extra points will be given to teams that use these players. Leftover players will also be chosen first in future events when randomizing teams to ensure everyone gets a chance to play, even if they have bad luck.
Each rush will have a unique theme to it, including player signups only, a nerfed slide rush, a tournament style event, and more. The individual themes for each rush are listed below. Remember to tell your friends to sign up! More Players=More Teams=More Points.
