GrifballHub has continued to grow every year since we first went online in 2008. Although the popularity of each Halo game waxes and wanes throughout the years, the Sport of the Future has always been growing.
Right now, GrifballHub — and Grifball itself — is on the precipice of something even bigger. GrifballHub just held its first Grifball tournaments with sizable cash prizes ($1500 for two events) and will host the first AGLA season with a sizable cash prize later this winter.
However, with this growth spurt has come growing pains. Right now, GrifballHub’s current servers cannot handle the increased volume of traffic. The website has exceeded available resources for its current hosting an average of three times a day for the past three weeks, sometimes going down anywhere from a couple minutes to several hours.
Because of this growth, we need to upgrade our hosting. But it’s not free.
GrifballHub is looking to raise $1500 to fund upgraded servers for the next twelve months. We are also looking to give away a pile of awesome games and Grifball swag to our community to repay their support!
We will hold a series of random drawings on Thursday, January 1. The giveaways include:
There are two ways Grifballers can enter into the drawing:
On the evening on January 1, a list of winners will be drawn from the entry pool. The first person picked will receive the first choice of prizes; the second person picked will receive the second choice, etc. This will continue until all the prizes are exhausted or every person has won a prize. Each entrant is eligible to win just one prize.
Every Grifballer can have many entries into the entry pool. If you were to buy a GrifTee (one entry) and donate $30 (three entries), you would have four entries in the pool. This increases your chance of winning and winning early, giving you first pick of the prizes listed above! Plus you’re helping keep GrifballHub online!
As always, please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for your generosity and support of Grifball!
