The first qualifier for the Grifball Pro Tour’s Professional League starts in one week. The event will be a swiss-style tournament, with the top two teams receiving an invitation to the Professional League. The first round of the event will begin at 7:00pm EST on Monday, January 2nd, with registration closing an hour prior to that.
If you have a team of four and are ready to go for the tournament, you can register your team for both the Pro Tour and qualifiying events at http://grifball.gg/register; note that even if you only have three players available, you can still participate by using a player not on your roster as a “stand-in” player.
If you want to participate in the Pro Tour but still need a team, or if you’re a captain looking for another player or two to fill out your roster, we’ll be hosting a mixer tomorrow night from 9-11PM EST, which is a great opportunity for free agents to get noticed and for recruiting captains to scout out players for their roster. We’ll also be using the mixer as a chance to test some of the proposed gametypes for the Pro Tour, including the no slide and no sprint variants. The GrifballHub broadcast team will be casting some of the matches played onto our Twitch channel at http://twitch.tv/grifballhub.
If you wish to participate in the mixer, simply post the gamertag you’ll be playing with in the event thread at http://www.grifballhub.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=119&t=5058 or send an Xbox Live message to SonicNachos.
