Some pretty cool news came out of yesterday's Community Update regarding the new ball mode. It sounds as though the mode will include the modifiers you'd expect as far ball carrier traits and such as well as some more flexible options which will allow us to create substantially different gametypes.

We'll be able to edit things like:
  • Points per goal score
  • Points for holding the ball
  • Ball throwing
  • Number of destinations
  • Sequential ball spawn locations
With these options, we'll be able to more or less create modes like:
  • I'Assault
  • Grifball
  • Odball
  • Ricochet
  • Counter Strike (multiple bomb sites)
The update also mentioned some of what NOKYARD and the internal team worked on in relation to Grifball. I've worked with Nokyard o some of the courts, and I can say that they are pretty cool.

This mode will bring a lot to H5, and hopefully it'll be the first of several.
