The Grifball community is hitting the court…and the ‘Creek. And the poker table.
Join us on Wednesday, April 25 at 9:00PM Eastern for a Grifball in Reach Neighborhood Tournament (GRUNT). Like their namesake aliens, GRUNTs are finished off quickly and end in a shower of confetti and cheers. They are two-hour tournaments where teams sign up, get placed in a round-robin bracket, and play back-to-back-to-back Grifball matches until only one team remains!
On Wednesday night we will be playing Vanilla Grifball on the classic Bloody Grifball court. If you do not have Bloody Grifball, you can search for in-game, or download it from matchmaking. The gametype is five untimed rounds of Vanilla Grifball. Signups for teams will open at 9:00PM Eastern and close 30 minutes later, at which time the round-robin bracket will be released. Signup details will be available on the front page of the Hub at 9:00PM. For more details, please see this thread on the forums.
On Monday, April 30, we will be quickening the pace for a GRUNT featuring Grifball Dash! Signups will open at 10:00PM Eastern and the bracket will be posted at 10:30. The gametype for the event is five untimed rounds of Grifball Dash. More details are available in this thread.
On Friday, May 4, we will be reliving the Grifball games played a long time ago on a court far, far away. We’ll be running a Halo 3 tournament using the classic 9 round settings on the classic Foundry court! Signups will open at 10:00PM Eastern. Check out this thread for more info.
On Sunday, May 6 at 10:00PM Eastern we will once again challenge Grifballers to ante up and show their hands! We’ll be playing Full House Poker for two hours of Texas Hold ‘Em mayhem. To receive an invite, simply sign up in this thread.
Finally, on May 8 at 9:00PM Eastern, we’ll be going even further back — to Halo CE(A)! We’ll be spending two hours in Reach matchmaking, playing on the Anniversary map pack. To receive an invite, post your gamertag in this thread on the forums. Also check out the thread for details on how you can snag the Anniversary maps, if you don’t have them yet.
Grifballers and Halo players of all experience levels are welcome to jump in and participate in these events. We hope we’ll see you there!
