Oddball: Throwing the Ball

Sat Nov 10, 2012 7:26 pm

This is absolutely hilarious. Oddball is so much more fun now. You can toss the ball to teammates. There's going to be so much strategy here. An oddball carrier can bait people away from their team, and then turn around and throw it to someone else. Or, you can jump up and intercept a pass. It's awesome.

I was thinking the same thing. I kept adding stuff to it and, in the end. turned out to be basically grifball. Never really thought of grifball to be football, but it kinda is. One of the LZ guys is working on a oddball gametype and I am too.

LZ Ravenger's version has everyone with 1 life and invincible. When you hold the ball you are vulnerable and earn points, so you have to pass it around a lot.

My version I'm thinking of is you can only carry the ball in warthog sideseat.

Do projectiles and explosions affect the trajectory of the ball when it's in flight?
Don't really know much of the mechanics behind it but it sounds like a good gametype.

If you come up against one enemy and you have the ball, throw it at the enemy so they auto pick it up. They then have no ranged weapon and you can take them out in the confusion.

I had fun with Amanda and Jedi throwing my balls at them.
But after holding it for awhile, I became a magic handed ball hog.

Also, this has completely changed Grifball and I'm giddy with excitement to see it in Matchmaking.
You just read this incredibly tiny text for no good reason, and have nothing to show for it.

Its worth passing after 100 consecutive points anyway as you can gain no further sprees.

Go long!

I played this about a week ago and it does change things up quite a bit. The range is less than an actual grenade, so I think it might take a while to get the hang of the trajectory. This is going to also make getting the ball off the edge of the map a lot easier. Grab, run, throw off a cliff, repeat.
