The Fall 2011 season of GrifballHub’s Good Games League has reached its appropriately epic conclusion. We are ready to crown our Vanilla and Dash league champions and announce the season award winners!
In the Dash division, We touch our [controllers] while we play Grifball, aka The New York Pineapples, went undefeated throughout the entire season to capture the championship. They went 10-0 during the regular season, secured the #1 seed in the playoffs, and beat The Ways and Means Committee, defending champs The Hot Bikini Guyz, and finalists Four Guys One Ball to end the season an amazing 16-0. Congrats to SlimJimX50 and his squad for taking it all on the Dash side!
In the Vanilla Division, the #12 seed The Black List defeated the #3 seed Church of the Based Lord, a team made up of some past GGL champions. The Black List went through the playoffs without losing a single game. Congrats to BossTycoonx and his team for winning the Vanilla Grifball bracket!
But let’s not forget about everyone else! 356 players took part in 206 games this season, and many made notable names for themselves. Here are the award winners for the cumulative stats for weeks one through five:
The Terminator goes to the player with the most kills per minute. The most badass killing machine for the season was Honchopotamus of We Roll LASO with 5.15 kills/minute!
The second award goes to the player with the most deaths per minute. This season, the Mayfly award goes to Blaze117 of TACO, who averaged an outstanding 6.36 deaths/minute!
The third award goes to the player who has the best outlook on life. The most positive player this season, with a K/D spread of +250, is Yo DrGreenthumb of the Vanilla runners-up Church of the Based Lord!
The fourth award is a doozy: It goes to the player who might have a tough time getting insurance. The player with the most betrayals this season with 65 was Crusader0102 of Four Guys One Ball, who finished 9 ahead of his teammate TrueFlyingCow.
The next award goes to the player who ended up with the fewest betrayals. With zero betrayals during the season, and the longest time on the court of any the betrayal-less players, the Loyalist award for the season goes to TheAlphaTurtle of lvl 50!
The next award goes to the player who kills with style. It’s no surprise that this season the top backstabbers were Forsaken Mango and Nuclear Taco 42 of Green Army Jr., who finished the year with 13 assassinations each.
Who best stood in the way of the other team, stopping the opposition when his teammates couldn’t? Who ended the most killing sprees during the season? That would be steelwing158 of Hellhounds, who had 14 KillJoys!
And who is the instigator who gets the ball rollin’ and the hammer swingin’ at the start of every round? This season, two players tied for the most First Strike medals, with 25 each. Congrats to L1ght5aber and Crusader0102 of Four Guys One Ball!
The penultimate award goes to our main ecologist: The player with the most plants per minute. Averaging one goal every two minutes, the best planter for the season is SlimJimX50 of the New York Pineapples!
Finally, the ultimate award goes to the player who is always happy to pinch-hit for another team. During the season, this player played in more games for other teams than for his own! The Stud for the Fall 2011 season is none other than L1ght5aber of Four Guys One Ball!
Congrats to all our award winners!
