What is Blitzball?

The aquatic sport is played on spherical stadia filled with pyrefly-infused water. According to the Final Fantasy X Scenario Ultimania the sphere pool utilizes pyreflies to congeal the water into a sphere. Blitzball players can stay active underwater for extended periods of time because they are supported by the pyreflies contained in the water.

The objective is for the player and their team to kick the blitzball into the opposing team's goal, while the opposing team simultaneously defends their goal and attempts to steal the blitzball to make an attempt at the player's goal.

The verb for playing blitzball is "blitzing" or "to blitz”

I am getting back into playing Gaelic so I am theming this challenge off the coolest fictional sport I ever saw-Blitzball. It was introduced in Final Fantasy X (10) and I always wanted to play it in real life..prolly more than most sports lol. It combined elements of basketball, swimming and soccer. Well, Gaelic is a lot like Blitzball, minus the cool underwater sphere. I’m still very raw at this sport and relying heavily on athleticism right now but I’m hoping to refine some skills at my position, midfielder aka halfback. I won’t be scoring much, but I can get all the “highballs”, make sweet passes and juke a couple people out in the process. My goal this 4WC is to get faster and build my endurance.

Heather is also getting back into Gaelic. We joined up with the co-ed summer league going on right now and Heather will be joining Nichole’s team (since I’m on Drew’s). Her and I will have one day a week where we go practice at the enormous fields down the street from us. We’ll work on pure basics to refine our skills or techniques in Gaelic along with the weekly scrimmage on Saturday. I don’t know if it’s every Saturday but I think it is.

Crazy fact #1-I will be participating in a sprint triathlon on the 24th...so in less than 2 weeks. YIKES!! I’m doing it with my father in law. He asked me this past Sunday if I wanted to go so I said yes. This will be interesting to say the least. 300m swim--->9 mile bike ride--->5k run. He’s gonna get a bike for me to borrow but I have everything else say for a swim cap which I’ll need with my luscious locks ;). I’m going to order some Hammer gels and endurolites for myself and my father in law cuz I know I’m gonna need em. This will be cool cuz this will be the first time him and I have done ANYTHING like this. Should be fun. And it will test me..so look out for me to prolly like it overall, lol.

So there’s that. And Gaelic is going on until the Fall, so I’m gonna stay healthy to keep playing and upgrading my skills. My challenge will have me start as a beginner Blitzball midfielder and work my way up by gaining skills and upgrading my stats. For me, passing (PA), endurance (EN), speed (SP), attack (AT) and hitpoints (HP) will be my “5 Key Factors”.

 

5 Key Factors

  • Passing (PA) will include hand passing and kick passing. Accuracy and power are my main attributes here. Patience too. I forget how much space I can cover with one dribble and a solo kick to myself. I was estimating around 30 feet once I got moving. Judging distance to decide which pass to perform is crucial as well. I can’t kick pass to someone only 15 ft away-it’s not efficient OR very accurate.

    • Practice passing drills 1x a week, both kicking and hand passing

    • Practice “soloing” while in full stride

  • Endurance (EN) will obviously help me stay on the pitch longer but also break tackles and get up field for the score more efficiently. I am the Wolf after all, and wolves are known for their stellar endurance and ability to run and track prey for MANY miles. Endurance also allows me to go after what the players call a “highball”. When a ball is kicked from the goalie out to play and I can go up and grab the ball up high and come down with it. This is a basketball skill outright and I have always prided my ability to leap :). Grabbing “highballs” is also a skill that a lot of players don’t possess so I need to strengthen that skill with my endurance to jump for days.

    • Get in a long walk/ruck 1x a week

  • Speed (SP)..well we all know speed kills and that’s what I want to do. Foot speed, straight away speed, cutting speed and lateral speed are all important. Combined with my ability to keep running, I can use my size and speed to gain momentum on offense and take advantage of a slower opponent. Speed to the ball is crucial due to the fact of how fast paced Gaelic is and controlling the ball with a “solo” at full speed is crucial to getting to the next level of the pitch and into scoring range.

    • Sprints 1x a week-can be combined with passing drills. Work on catching highballs and moving 25-30 yards upfield afterwards

    • Jumping rope and other plyometrics 1x a week

  • Attack (AT) is my ability to defend and strip the ball-this is also called a “tackle” in Gaelic.. Being a glorified midfielder/halfback is not just smooth passes and swanky speed but I need to be able to defend and strip the ball from my opponent. Getting my attack up (strength and dexterity) will be getting into the mindset that this is NOT basketball and I can reach in and slap and manipulate so long as I’m not over the back and not holding. Be aggressive and be relentless.

    • KB workouts 3x a week

    • GtG pull-ups

  • Hitpoints (HP) is keeping myself in one piece. I’ve done a good job recently and my shoulder feels better every day. Hitpoints in Blitzball is the ability to execute a trick shot, pass or tackle called a technique. These techniques range from ones like Venom Shot to Wither Pass but I’ll get into those more a little later. For now, the better I eat, sleep, and move, the more it will translate to Gaelic or Blitzball in the case of my challenge and the more dominant I will become.

    • Shoulder rehab every other day (with band)

    • Foam rolling and lacrosse ball rolling my feet-work on increasing the strength of my fascia. Check out this article, this one and this one

    • 4-week crawling program for shoulder strength

    • Wim Hof breathing method-practice each morning

To be successful at Gaelic, I need to work on mastering the “5 Key Factors”. Once I can harness those and establish myself as an capable midfielder, then I can worry about trying to score some goals. For now, assisting my teammates to score is fine by me :). Hustle points are usually the best points, IMO.

Techniques are important in Blitzball. They allow the player to get past defenders easier, make passes that render opponents asleep and even shots that can drop all stats in half. Now, with Gaelic, I cannot do that unfortunately but I can learn these techniques in the world of Spira, which is where my Blitzball journey to legendary begins…

This challenge will follow the rise to stardom of my fictional Blitzball midfielder, Ryver. It will follow his triumphs and his failures. He will go from a complete beginner to a bonafide, badass blitzer. I’m excited about this and may even make it a 2-parter, not sure yet. This challenge will have lots of running, kettlebell swinging, pull-ups, rucking, Gaelic football, swimming, sleeping, eating clean, eating lots and praying/bible study. I still plan to go to that every week. Speaking of praying-I’m praying I survive my first triathlon. That’s gonna be intense!

Blitzball Techniques

 

 

Technique’s Explained (all info can be found on This Website)

Techniques
==========
Techniques(also called Techs) are special abilities used in Blitzball
matches, which make the game more interesting. There are many different
Techs in the game(see Techniques section for full listing), varying from
ones that improve your stats(e.g. Sphere Shot), ones that inflict status
ailments (e.g. Venom Tackle), and ones that speed up HP recovery(Regen).
Techniques either cost HP to use or to equip. Techniques can only be
equipped after level 3. Therefore, you have to have(nice word usage, there)
played a number of games, before you can use Techniques. When you reach
level 3, you will be able to equip one Technique, but as you level up,
you will be able to equip more - up to a maximum of 5.

Gaining Techniques
==================
There are two ways to learn techniques in the game - Techcopy during
matches, and win them in Tournaments/Leagues.
Alright, so there is a third way, but that's only for Tidus! OK?

Techcopy
========
Before each game, you can select which players you want your team to mark.
When selecting who to mark, the other players will have techniques listed
below their names, the ones that appear in colour, are the ones that your
player can learn. During the match, if the marked player performs that
Technique, the word Techcopy will appear in the top left-hand corner of
the screen. When it flashes white, press X in order to learn it. If
you are successful, you should hear a tinkle, and a confirmation that
you have learned the new Technique will appear on the screen. Note:
low level players will not be able to learn techniques off high-level
players even if Techcopy appears on-screen.

Key Techniques
==============
Each player has 3 Techniques that s/he has to learn to be able to learn
further Techniques. If you learn one of the three a certain number of
extra Techs will be available to learn, if you learn 2 Key Techs,
even more will be open, and so on. If you learn a Key Technique
during the match, you will be alerted of this at half time.

Assigning Techniques
====================
Before each game, and at the start of the second half, you can assign
Techniques to your players Technique spaces in order for them to be
able to use them in a match. Some Techniques require you to use HP
when equipping them(such as Regen), this HP will be taken away from
your Max HP as long as you have the Technique equipped.

Using Techniques
================
During the match, when you choose to Pass/Shoot, you will be able to
choose to use whatever Passing or Shooting Techniques you have
equipped. The same for Tackling. These will require a certain amount
of HP to use each time.

Status Ailments
===============
During the game you may be inflicted with status ailments, the most
common of these is Poison.
Poison: The effected player does not regain HP when s/he does not have
       the ball. The player cannot use anty Shooting Techniques while
       poisoned. The poison will wear off after a while or at half time.
Wither: One of the effected players Stats will be halved. In order to
       remove this stat reduction, you must use that stat e.g. if PA
       is lowered, you must pass the ball. This effect wears off at
       half time.
Sleep:  Caused by Nap Techniques. This sends the player to sleep,
       unable to move. The player will awake at half time, after a
       goal is scored, or when s/he is hit by the ball.

Haha, it's something that kinda floats around in my noggin since I first laid eyes on Blitzball. A really neat fictional sport if I must say. Thanks High Lord :) I have a 35# and 45# KB that I hardly use anymore and it's time I changed that.

LMAO!

 

I'm at the new building starting today and the inside is interesting. They do have a "locker room" type bathroom with showers and lockers..so that's gonna help when I decide to play basketball in the dead heat of summer. Extra clothes and towels and I'll be good to go! Not sure what I'll end up doing this evening, but I was thinking about starting my KB routine tonight that way I can do that MWF. The days in between I decided I'll prolly do my 4-week crawling program for shoulder health or move that to the morning because the workouts are only 10 min long. I'll figure out my schedule before Zero Week ends so I'm not worried.

 

We have a scrimmage this Saturday which I'm excited about because I did well this past Saturday. There's a lot of skill/technique type stuff I was struggling with because of my basketball mind. In Gaelic, you have to hand pass it, which is a strike to the ball like in volley ball. So you CANNOT chest pass, behind the back pass or any other fancy passes like basketball and I did that a few times. Also, if the ball is on the ground, you CANNOT just pick it up, but instead bend down, with the outside leg stepping past the ball and using your inside leg to kick the ball into your hands. It's wicked hard to explain without a visual but that is the jist of it. It's like a "kick-scoop" into your hands. So, I got called for a couple little things like that but outside of the few things I messed up on, I did really well. I got lots of compliments about my "hgihball" ability and defense, though. That's good enough for me. I have an always will be a team player-I just want to make sure I'm pulling my weight, ya know?

Wow, I played a bit of ffX back in the day, but the detail of this challenge sure taught me a lot! Look forward to it.

 

What's funny, is I don't remember much else about FFX except Blitzball. I think my first EVER fanfiction was from Blitzball when I was like 13 years old or something like that, lol. Good to have ya back, buddy. We shall super charge our fascia and rule the world!!

Yeah, instead, "careful-not-to-Ef-up-your-shoulder" would be a better middlename!

 

Don't know diddly squat about blitzball and FF except that i always thought it has fantastic scenery pics when i come across them on the internet, but with this rangerbrain i'm not even gonna try.

 

Same goes for your challenge, i'm gonna have to read up on it when i have a bit more spare time, but just placing my stake(s) here so i can easily find you.

Awesome challenge! Gaelic football's a great sport. There's not nearly enough of it on TV here so I don't totally understand it, but I really enjoy watching it! Following along.
