Tonight’s GRUNT: Grifball Evolved

Last night’s GRUNT was a great success. After two hours of play, Cold as the Cold Wind Blows beat He’s On My X in the championship to capture the first GRUNT title. If you have any feedback regarding last night’s gametype, please post it as a comment here or in the Vanilla Grifball thread.

Tonight, Friday the 17th, we are moving on to our second GRUNT: Grifball Evolved. This gametype is very similar to last night’s Vanilla Grifball, but with one important difference: All players are given the Evade Armor Ability. The tanks are on a roll as they can swoop past their opponents in one lightning-quick move. It certainly adds an additional tactical element to the game that won’t be easy to master.

The map for tonight’s GRUNT will once again be Nuclear Taco’s GGL Coliseum.

Sign-ups begin tonight at 10:00PM EST. At that time, if you have a team of at least four lined up, you can sign up here. Shortly after 10:30PM, a bracket will be posted on the Hub and in the Evolved GRUNT discussion thread. Once a game has been played, the winning captain must report it here.

    Just get ready for a bunch of evade jumping (jump right before coming out of an evade roll) from spawn to spawn in 4 seconds…

  2. Kal says:

    The court’s pretty large, but you can still cover a good length of it by evade-jumping.

    Of course, what would be great is if we can get the timing down to also pick up the ball on the way. Kind of a hammerless flowers.

    Timing is easy. Figured it out with Nogard the other day. Didn’t take long.
