It’s time for another Grifball in Reach Neighborhood Tournament (GRUNT)!
Tonight, we’ll be trying out a slightly tweaked version of Grifball Evolved v2.1 called (for now) Alternative Grifball.
While Grifball Evolved v2.1 has Sprint and Evade as options, and has the ball carrier set to 125% speed, Alternative Grifball has only Evade as an option, but boosts the runner’s speed to 150% to compensate for the lack of Sprint. Tonight we will be playing on the GGL Coliseum.
Signups will begin at 10:00PM EST and run until 10:30PM EST. Each game is a 4 v. 4 battle, although teams may sign up more than four players if they need backups.
Shortly after 10:30, a tournament bracket will be posted here at the HUB and in the Alternative GRUNT thread on the forums. Teams will face off against each other in a single-elimination tournament until there is only one squad remaining. After each game, the winning team must report the results of the game here.
Please note: If you have previously signed up for the Grifball league, you must also sign your team up for the GRUNT at 10:00PM EST if you would like to play in tonight’s tournament.
If you are looking for players for your team tonight, check out the GRUNT Looking for a Player thread. Be proactive and send messages to other folks who have posted in that thread. Also feel free to leave a comment below.
Our first Grifball in Reach highlight reel was released last week and was a big hit, seen by almost 100,000 people so far. We’re collecting highlights for other videos in the future. If you pull off an amazing move tonight, please save a clip of it, upload it to your Reach fileshare, and submit it using this form. You might be in our next Grifball montage!
Finally, there is a prize for tonight’s GRUNT: Just like the winners of last Friday’s GRUNT, Kucamunga Kracka Killas Drinking Clutch Coffee, the winning team tonight will be awarded a team interview with GrifballHub’s Goosechecka, which will be posted on the front page of GrifballHub.com! Goose will be in touch with the winning team to schedule a time that works for all for the interview, which will be conducted over XboxLive.
As always, let us know if you have any questions. Feel free to contact the Hub staff at any time.
See you on the court!
