If you’d like to sign up for this event, gather at least four other players and sign your team up in this thread. If we find out more information on this event, we will update this article.
Update: Here is a little more information on the gametype that will be used from event host, Perfect Demise.
Let me get a little detailed with the game for players who have not played in the betas, this is a hammers and swords variant of Ricochet that is played on a huge field the size of a soccer field. Each side has two goals and the goals are a box, or as some say goal post. This “goal post” looks like a soccer goal. The object of the game is to use a lot of team work and pass plays to score in the goal by either throwing or running. Each gets you one point and you need 5 to win a game similar to Grifball. Keep in mind that it is a little tough if you’re playing against a good goalie. This game is to ensure that everybody works as a team.
