SotA Gustball logo.png

Gustball is a organized sport in which players form two teams, and using the Air magic spell of Gust, attempt to move the ball into the opposing team's goal.


"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 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 put into overtime and the very next goal decides the winner. Each half will last 15 minutes. Teams should have some type of uniform, at the least having common cloaks. Rules & guidelines will be posted in the latest release Event Forum."

Release 19[edit]

For Release 19, Portalarium created an actual Gustball (relieving an avatar from having to play the role of “The Ball”). Additionally, with the release of the Chaos spell of Juxtapose, the use of Chaotic Backdraft has been added. Gustball tournaments were held at Firehawk Field in the new player town of Port Phoenix.

Release 21[edit]

During the End of Summer Telethon of the Avatar, the players and developers competed in a Gustball game. The Firehawks defeated the Born Losers (devs) in the first game (1-0), but 4B lost to the Born Losers in the second match (0-1).
