The Good Games League is a league developed for Grifball players wanting to play in a friendly environment.
Teams may not use any modded gametype including features not officially released by 343 Industries. Games played on modded gametypes will not be counted for the league and may result in disciplinary action for the teams involved.
There is no formal disputes process, however games can be replayed if agreed upon by both teams. Teams may contact league administrators or ambassadors to assist with settling disputes.
The winning team must report the results of the match after a match is played. If a match is not reported, the winning team will not receive credit for a win.
Once the roster lock is in effect, players can no longer remove themselves from a team. They can removed themselves from a team after the end of the season.
All games must be played 4v4, unless both captains involved agree to use fewer than 4 players for the match.
In addition to their normal 10 roster spots, teams may add players to a “VIP” list if the player’s inclusion on a GGL roster has significant positive public relations value for Grifball as a whole. Players may only be added to a team’s VIP list by a league admin, and every addition must be approved by a league admin. Players on the VIP list may not play in more than 50 percent of a team’s games in a season, including post-season games.
When using a substitute player, the opposing team’s captain may veto the use of the sub or any sub for any reason.
Games may be rescheduled whenever it is convenient for both teams.
If a team does not play for the first week of the season, they may be removed from the league. Other teams in their division may have their schedules altered in ways that may include playing teams within their division more than twice, to ensure they there are two matches scheduled every week.
Teams that unnecessarily abuse the “take a knee” rule may face disciplinary action. Teams should only take a knee and stop play when a player drops from the game or or the match is otherwise unplayable.
If the captains involved in an unplayable game are unable to agree on a course of action, they should send a message to or a league administrator describing the situation. They may be required to also submit any film they have of the game.
The playoff matches are each a best-of-three series. After the first game, the losing team may, if they wish, decline the rest of the series. Any substitute player in the playoffs must be approved by the opposing team’s captain.
Formula for Tie Breakers:
Teams in the Veteran Divisions may still go for Achieveables and will participate in the same playoff bracket as teams in the classic divisions. They may still use guest players (provided the other team’s captain approves).
If a team cannot play at the scheduled time, Veteran Division games may be rescheduled for a time convenient for both teams.
Please remember that the goal of teams entering this league should be to have fun. By playing in a GGL game, players give their approval of the above rules.
