As in the title, I've enjoyed testing out the various secret league teams, none of which seem horribly badly balanced. Before this, I used to play box almost exclusively, as I liked the lack of picking and faffing around. In the site's long-run future, wouldn't it be great to have all these secret league team options in a Box scheduling system?

No. Secret League is an optional ruleset and it should remain firmly in the League Division where people can opt in or opt to leave it well alone.

As for the implementation of a scheduler for League/Group managers to utilise then I would wholeheartedly agree that would be a great addition to the already wonderful facilities provided by Christer and the team (Site Admins).

I'd like a scheduler for SL, the GF sucks for finding balanced matches because people try to cherrypick even there.

SL in the box gets my vote, but then I'm not sure if I'm one of the pickers MattDakka refers to

I'm not fussed really. It would be a nice option for league for sure. as for secret league i guess if it were possible it would be fun to do on the hour every hour or something

In theory, it would be nice. My main problem with it though would be further fragmentation of the player base. We already have Ranked, Blackbox, League, Secret League, Stunty ... this would split Secret League into SL Open and SL Blackbox as well ...

No. You don't split it. You just add a scheduler.

Agreed (1). Alternatively, scheduler in SL would be nice, as well (2).
(1) is probably not going to happen because of Box-adherence to official rosters, while (2) is 2nd best option for me.

Not agreed. While I'm sure, tourneys are great, I like Box (or the scheduler) for being able to play instant matches (i.e. when I come home at a random time or 5 games in a row on a sad & rainy day, etc.) w/o committing to more than 90Mins of bb (per game) and w/o any preparation whatsoever (no specific frequency of continuing games, no setting up dates via pms, no matter what TV & not even committing to playing that particular team ever again if I don't want to).
