Deathball is a kill-the-man-with-the-ball style sport played by two teams. The game is played in a translucent sphere controlled by low gravity wells which allow players to navigate it with feats that evade the laws of physics. The goal of the game is to score by getting the ball in the opposing Mag-Lock. The Deathball itself is composed of an anamorphic Neutronium ball that shifts with the wielders violent intentions. A powerful explosive device is shielded by the carapace of the ball and detonates at the end of each thirty minute half. When a player is killed they are automatically QuickCloned(R) by recombination tanks.
