Hello, I’m Reyas and welcome to my reports!
Under the spotlight today we have my lovely teammate HWM Jester!
Gamertag: HWM Jester
Current Team: Legendary <3
Previous Teams: Underrated, Paradox Warriors, Next Dimension(Ship from the bench), ARK(believe it or not). And many others.
Experience: 1 season in EUGBL, and lost count of how many seasons in GGL and AGLA. Quite a few though.
Honours: I’ve won a ship in both AGLA(from the bench) and NGA(what is that?). As well as making playoffs on many occasions.
Community Involvement: I don’t do anything to benefit the community but I try to be active on the forums as much as I can.
1. How and when did you first find the Grifball leagues?
I learned about Grifball leagues in matchmaking back on Halo Reach. I had literally no one to play with and ran into some cool strangers at the time. Bosco the Bear and Sab. I can’t exactly remember what happened but I ended up in a lot of customs and things kind of took off from there.
2. Who were your initial players and how did the team get together?
I believe my first team was Blazing Inferno or something like that. All though I can’t remember any gamertags for my teammates. The first thing I do remember however is captaining a team one season back on Reach for the GGL. A team of mostly friends. Though halfway through the season being a captain weighed on me so I passed it over to someone else. And he must have forgot I was on the team because when we made playoffs he didn’t start me. We lost of course.
3. What do you feel has been the most outstanding development to the AGLA since you first started?
Probably the bidding system. I personally love the bidding structure, even if I tend to go for 10 credits or not get bid on lol.
4. What has been your favourite part of being in the Grifball leagues so far?
Just being a part of the community and meeting so many interesting people.
5. Who do you feel are the best players in each position in the AGLA right now?
Tank: Probably anyone who can beat me time and time again. Which is a lot of people as I’m pretty much garbage.
Hybrid: Nets. He can make so many crazy plays it’s honestly amazing. Plus, he’s my boy, even if we don’t play together anymore.
Runner: Well Rey, you make some crazy things happen when we play, so I’ll go with you. <3
Defender: Toss up between Poptart and Noplex. Poptart is ridiculous with his sword lunges on Halo 5 and Noplex is still just as good as ever at defending. He always has been.
6. Who do you feel is the most underrated player in the AGLA?
Maybe my teammate Smokey. The games we’ve played together he’s played pretty damn well.
7. Who do you feel is the most overrated player in the AGLA?
I’m not going to take any shots at anyone, that isn’t me. :P
8. Have you got any hopes and dreams for the future of Grifball?
Just that the Hub never dies out and we constantly have leagues to play in for many years to come.
9. What do you think of Legendary’s season so far?
We’re the best, around… sorry, broke out into song there. We’ve been really good so far, we just have to keep that rolling. Which would probably be easier if I’m benched. :P
10. What are your hopes for Legendary come the end of the season?
Let’s get that ship!
11. Who do you predict to make playoffs, and what final placings do you think they’ll get?
Well I’m not really sure how many teams actually make playoffs but I expect to see Legendary, Underrated and HyperDrive for sure.
12. How well do you feel you are adjusting to Halo 5, is it better than older Halos?
I mean I’m trash in every Halo but I do enjoy Halo 5’s Grifball. Hate me if you want but I enjoy the slide.
13. Who would be in your dream team of current AGLA players?
Nets, Rey, Poptart, Noplex, Ace(because why not). I mean I’d want a lot of people on my dream team lol.
14. Who would be in your dream team of all time AGLA players?
Probably the same as above. Add in Shadow S16. Another one of the greats.
15. Do you have a rival player/team?
Well maybe PD. But that’s from a very old thing that happened and honestly, it’s water under the bridge at this point.
Last of all, is there anything else you’d like to say?
*normal Jester silence*
