Maybe it is just me by mirror matches are far and away the least fun matches in the game. Is there anything that makes them less likely in box? Like I know you can just turn them off in ranked.

From your most played teams (now retired) you had 1 mirror match from 13 with Undead and 1 from 16 matches with Humans. Doesn't seem bad at all.

Think of it as a way to learn some tactics from your opponent if you see them playing differently to you.

Some of us like mirror matches some of the time. If it happened 3/7 of the time, over time, that would be troubling. But 3 times in one sample of 7 games, that's just randomness being what it is.

It has only started to be an issue in the past couple games. Up until recently I never played a mirror in box, but now I've had 3 in 7 games.


You've had 2 mirror matches in your last 7 blackbox matches. 1 you won, the other you drew.

Isn't or wasn't there a FUMBBL rule about being a certain age before you can make an account?


I'm in the middle of playing one right now


Relax. When your team gets bigger and faces mostly CPOMBers you'll long for the days when you got to play so many undead. Twisted Evil

Out of curiosity has there been a recent spike in Undead teams on FUMBBL?

several keep complaining about mirror matches, heard it often, here(fummbl) and other places, never understood the issue about it, never cared either.

Nothing can be done about it, best suck it up, if it was an issue, or care less about things that can't be done.

Because of them being released on BB2, you think?

Well if there were an uptick in Undead then it could be related to the release for BB2. I would guess that people are playing their Undead over at cyanide anyway, not here, but perhaps there are some who are still holding out to buy BB2, yet seeing the twitch streams has them wanting to try Undead.

As Koadah indicates there has not been more Undead play it would seem my speculation is unfounded however.

Black Box is full of evil in many shapes: clawpomb, minmax, huge TV gap mismatches and the worst of them all: the dreaded mirror matches!

I remember my joy when my Ogre team's 80th match was a mirror.
A fun game though a 1-1 draw and a MNG to a snotling was the end result.

Yes. Using the least popular teams makes mirrors much less likely.

Does he ever get mirror matches against himself? A mirror-mirror match?

I figure it might be that some people want to play undead in bb2, but don't want to play every match vs undead, as it was just released so most people are playing it. So there might be some people who would be playing undead on bb2 but are playing it here instead for a more diverse team list.

That said, 2 of the 4 undead teams I've ever played were guys with like 2000 games so it is most likely just a coincidence
