2 minutes sounds good for a special tournament but for Box it would just penalise players who haven't played thousands of matches so aren't playing on autopilot.

Nice idea but you would just get fewer draws.

At first I thought you meant the scheduler would run every two minutes. That would be a better idea.

It has been previously suggested that there be no 15 minute wait, and just draw whenever 4 or more coaches put teams in the box.

In theory this sounds good, but I've read that draws are better the more coaches you have in them. How would you set this up so that it wasn't drawing as soon as 4 eligible teams were matched up? Maybe as soon as there are 4 eligible coaches with teams that would be a legitimate matchup, a 2 minute timer starts to give others a chance to jump in?

I think that most of times there are just 4 coaches activating, so it should not make a big difference.

So maybe a 5 minute grace period instead of 15...

What the hell guys? Very Happy We had this scheduler discussion in another thread last week (and every other month before that).

This thread is, err, was about the possibility of, say, one themed night in blackbox a week to add a different flavour.
