I just wish to congratulate the makers of the Blackbox Trophy!

Having been away for sometime, I'm unsure how many times this tournament has been run, but I think it's such a clever little format.

Not only does it mean there's a year long tournament running, but it of course brings a fantastic mix of teams into the box.

Each day I activate I feel I'm in a tournament and each Blackbox game really matters!

I for one bring High Elves/Vamps/Ogres and naturally others do too.

I've set myself the target of playing 2 games a day for the next 100 days and hope to finish in the top 20.

I encourage anyone who hasn't joined yet to give it a whirl.

Once again, well done to whomever invented it!

I second this. BBT basically got me back into the game after 5 years away. This combined with no more PO has been great Smile

Thanks mate, I do hope it's run again.

It has been mentioned before but decrease the games required to 100 and I would hope there should be a lot more participants. Though maybe a few of the fanatics wouldn't play quite as many games.

I played like a total of 20 games because low TV stuff is like swimming in jello to me.

I think six monthly launches, 100 games, would be good.

I agree with datom about the timing - every 6 months helps to keep it fresh. I think the extra box traffic after the start of the last one died down after about 4 months or so? Unsure on the amount of matches though - 20 matches per team isn't quite as challenging as 40 for sure.

It's a great initiative though, and hope to see it continued. Also need to try and get at least 100 of my matches in!

+1.

Allow existing teams too.

Even then, it's still not Secret League. Twisted Evil

If the 100$ donation would be granted for real (the inventor of this price is offline since 38 weeks and actually never returned once he created the topic) AND the cap is set to 100 games, I'd give it a try. In case anyone is interested in my opinion.
