It’s Grifball night in America!
Join us tonight as we present an epic best-of-three playoff series of Grifball matches between two of the greatest Grifball teams in the history of the sport: Green Army and their progeny, Green Army Jr!
The pre-game show will begin at 9:30PM EST, where Tex and guests will discuss tonight’s matchup. At 10:00PM EST, the teams will take to the court for at least 18 rounds of high-flying Grifball action, complete with expert commentary and our on-court camera!
Green Army is one of the best-known, oldest, and beloved Grifball teams around. Captained by Texorcist, the host of Wednesday Night Grifbrawl, Green Army has been playing league Grifball for almost five years! Although they have yet to win a championship, they have been a strong force in most post-seasons.
Joining Tex on the team this season are original Green Army members Nanadel, GT Greenhorn, and JayAhre. iHoncho316, A MAN CAN0N, Rallyfox, and vanifreyja round out the squad. The team played in our special veteran division this season, ensuring that they had the chance to play twice as many games during the regular season than other teams. There are very few Grifball teams around with as much experience as Green Army, both in Halo 4 and before.
But one team that rivals them is their spin-off squad, Green Army Jr. Created by Tex in Fall 2009 when he wanted to start a new team for rookies under Green Army’s name, the team played Halo 3 Grifball for a few seasons before transitioning to Reach in 2010. There, Green Army Jr. found its calling playing Grifball Dash, where they were recognized as one of the greatest Dash teams in the world. Those skills of quickly moving the ball around the court have served Green Army Jr. well in the fast-paced setting of Halo 4 Grifball.
The team is captained by original player Nuclear Taco 42. Joining Taco is an interesting cast of characters: Forsaken Mango, GhostMachine024, snickerdoodle, bs angel, Crazy Dog 10, YurM0nK3ysUnC13, TheDrMouse, Ka Five, and FL00RCHEESE. It’s a great combination of players both delicious and deadly. (Although, in bs angel’s case, she is often more dangerous to her teammates than the other team).
