As the Good Games League puts to rest their 2013 Spring League with the crowning of A Righteous Kill as the current champions; they are ready to open up a new chapter in the history books of Grifball. This past Friday GrifballHub.com opened the signups for teams and players interested in participating in the 2013 Summer season of the Good Games League.
The Good Games League (GGL) is a recreational league for those who want more Grifball in their life. It is open to anyone who wants to play and it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been playing either. Veteran players and teams are just as welcome as rookie teams and players.
If you are a returning team and would like to play in the Summer season, you may do so at this link. If you are a newly formed team look to whet your appetite of Grifball, then please visit this link.
So how does the league work you wonder? Each team that registers will be assigned to a division with other teams of equal skill. So no worries if you’re a rookie team facing veteran teams constantly. Once the regular season kicks off, each team will play at least two games per week for five weeks on their designated game night. At the end of the regular seasons five week span, there is also a make-up week for those teams that needed to reschedule games from earlier in the season.
Not only does the GGL run their classic divisions, they offer “Veterans Divisions” for the teams that have been around for six or more seasons. However if you are a newer team and believe you have a strong history of Grifball, then feel free to sign up for the Veterans Divisions. These divisions run much like the classic divisions, only instead of playing just two games per week you could play up to four or more!
Also returning this season are Achieveables! These are completely optional goals to go for during your regular season games and rely on teamwork. Some could include going for an interception (catch a pass from the opposing team before it hits the ground) or scoring within 10 seconds of the round starting. The teams at the end of each season who have the highest GrifScore (the points your team earns for completing an Achieveable) will qualify for the playoffs.
If all of this sounds like it should make your summer less dull, then head on over to the Free Agents forum if you are a player looking for a team. Or if you’re starting your own team, check out the Players Needed forum. Sign ups will close on July 12th, with games starting the week of July 15th.
