In preparation for the beginning of the 2017 Spring Circuit, the GPT will be hosting a preseason mixer on Wednesday, December 28, starting at 9:00PM and running until 11:00PM EST.
Participation in this event is done individually. If you’re interested in participating, simply post in the event thread with your gamertag at least 15 minutes prior to the start time, and be online at the specified time. If you’re an experienced player and would like to help host some of the mixer lobbies, please also mention that when you post to register.
At 8:45PM EST on Wednesday, the registered players will be split into lobbies of 8, with one of the players designated as lobby leader. The lobby leader is responsible for gathering the players in that lobby together and controlling game/map settings. You may play either the latest no sprint or no/nerfed slide variant in your lobby. Since these seem to the be the two variants with the most interest in being used for the Pro Tour, we would recommend playing a couple games of each for the sake of testing and feedback, but if your lobby only wants to play one or the other, you can do that as well.
After each game, players should be shuffled around to allow players the chance to play on different teams and to help keep things even.
The Hub broadcast team will also be livestreaming some of the games played in the event to the GrifballHub Twitch channel (http://twitch.tv/grifballhub).
If you have any questions regarding the event or the GPT, feel free to contact GPT Commissioner SonicNachos either via GrifballHub PM, Xbox Live message, or at [email protected].
