    The essence of Gustball: Two teams are pitted against each other in sporting event not dissimilar from soccer, football, and basketball. The object of the game is to Gust a “Gustball” (an avatar named "The Ball") around the field and into your opponent’s goal; the team that scores the most goals within two halves wins the match. In the event of a tie, the game is extended and the very next goal decides the winner. Each half will last 10 minutes. Teams will either wear a white cloak or green cloak, depending on what team they are on. The Gustball will wear a red cloak.​

    Breaking a major rule, such as killing a player results in a red card.(1) of these results in you being kicked out of the game!​
    If you are being disruptive or if you cause outside interference you will be banned from the arena completely!​
    Please refrain from spamming or disrupting the flow of the event.​
    Absolutely no bugs or exploits will be tolerated!​

    Was hoping to watch the twitch recording afterwards, but it has the sound muted. Any chance I can somehow get to watch that with sound? Apparently the commentary was really funny. :oops:

    Bambino, you are amazing. You pay SoTA and make the effort to make this game great before it is even done--i.e. before it has deserved that designation. You deserve more than what you get in this game, especially since you are not a paid employee of this game with God Mode and you paid to help them make it great. I could never be as good as you in this game.

    Wow! I really appreciate it!

    This was a combined group effort to make this happen.

    Although, I had internet issues at the worst possible time, I was able to correlate with everyone using my weak cell phone connection and watch the stream from my iPhone.

    Special thanks to Gaelis, Sole, Maedhros, Net, Themo Lock, RizeUpGaming , Winfield. and several others that were involved.

    Oh, and definitely cannot forget "The Ball." He was definitely a good sport!

    I am in much gratitude to them,

    Reminder: This is scheduled to happen again Today! [Sunday, May 3rd, 3pm – 5pm CST/NBT]

    'lo, Bambino!

    Can we get clarification on the next event date? Saturday the 9th or Sunday the 10th?

    I'm going to assume the former because I know you want me at this event! :p

    I made a team for tonight's Gustball event if that's acceptable?

    My members so far are :

    - Silverglade
    - Soleidad
    - Kazyn Phoenixfyre
    - Gaelis Trajan ( too tired or rather has retired)
    - And myself of course.

    Oh, Silverglade wants us to be the green team if possible, i think he has a bad experience while playing as white..trauma's and all that. ;)

    Addendum to Rules
    The ONLY spell that may be used on The Ball is Gust!
    The ONLY spells that may be used on other players is Gust & Confusion!
    You may cast any spell you wish onto yourself except Invisibility & Stealth.
    All players must begin along the walls or goal line on their side of the arena!

    We will begin a Gustball league very soon! Whether it be guild based, city based, or whatever theme you drum up, begin thinking about creating a team that will take you in for the win!
    ---------------------------------------
    Looks like we will have (4) spots left assuming Duke Violations & Gaelis Trajan make it out.
    If you wish to participate please post here on the forums to reserve your spot and spec in Gust & Confusion.

    Even if we get a full roster, things happen and we may need backups, so I encourage audience members to also spec.

    Bambino, i was thinking - if a league can be formed, and if it can be figured out how to set up with minimal assets in game, maybe some PoTs can have gustball fields as an optional feature.. by minimal assets i was thinking two rugby type goals, and fan/royalty seating. - that way the pot owner, or officers therein, can get on that "lot" and set who "the ball" is, so they don't have to delete a cahracter, and who the referees are so they don't get gusted away hehe.

    if something like that happens, what size do you think would be optimal for a proper match? city lot, town lot? as a pot owner (village), i'd be willing to set one aside for use, if something "official" comes of it.

    Hey ThurisazSheol,
    Your input is much appreciated:D

    Many have posed some ideas to me and your ideas are unique from the others, as far as the lot permissions go.
    Having "Gustball" lot permission would be great!

    Other ideas on the table, some similar to yours, lots that have PvP switches, a game asset called a "gustball", above ground lot arenas similar to housing (perhaps 1 or 2 catered to gustball like games), as you said 'goals' like rugby & soccer, and what I think is the most laborious asset, a larger Olympic Game type arena that would be an asset a PoT would have to figure into planning their town, this would cater to all types of games, i.e.: a track (Beast Race/The Running Man), different types of arenas for PvP, a gustball arena, and perhaps other things I'm not stating off the top of my head & other ideas we drum up before the idea posed to the devs.

    As of now, I am holding back on establishing an official Gustball deck. Eternal Knight suggested we request a method of setting & locking a player into a Gustball deck, primarily to prevent cheating & people with outlandish PvP skills to have a huge advantage over primarily non-PvP'ers. This could be done via lot permissions, an squired item, but we would need some way of verifying, similar to a PvP flag, that a player is locked into a Gustball deck.
