So, we've done some highlights in the past, and for the most part, they were a failure. Clips weren't submitted, and when they were, reels were rarely made. This season, we're trying again but now there's a tangible reason to submit.
Basically, Mikinater went and made himself e-famous by posting a video of some poor girl breaking her ankles. Sucks for her, good for us, because now he can put ads in front of his youtube videos and, here's the good part, make money on them. Being the charitable person that he is, rather than greedily grubbing up that money, he's willing to put money he gets from highlight reels towards grifball league prizes, as well as a prize to the best highlight of the season. Everyone likes prizes, right? The Pro league winners will each receive 1600 Microsoft Points, as long as they played a game during either regular season or playoffs. Amateur league winners will receive and RT sponsorship as long as they played a game during regular season or playoffs. At the end of the season, Mikinater will make a top ten of the best highlights of the season, as voted by the community. The top highlight will get a 1600 point card.
In addition, even if you aren't the best, you can still win. As per MenZ's suggestion 2 posts down, one team with no FF losses will be drawn randomly to win an undisclosed prize (we don't know how much we'll have to work with, but it'll be something). Also, any team with 10 or more highlight submissions will receive an extra entry in the draw.
I'm pretty sure every game has at least one awesome play happen somewhere. All it takes is saving a clip with at least ten seconds before and after the awesome, then putting it on your fileshare and emailing the link to Highlights@Grifball.com. It's really not very hard, and it could land you some sweet MS points, not to mention getting the league some prizes that actually get delivered. People keep saying they want Grifball to be big again, this should help, but we need a community effort on this. Everyone has to send in their cool plays, passes, scores and whatever the hell else you can come up with. It's on you, Grifball community, get it done.
