I can only see this on the throphy page:

Blackbox Trophy
Season 3

The blackbox trophy is a year long blackbox meta event. Coaches select a squad of 4 unique teams with a budget of 7 points with team costs as follows:

0 points: Goblin, Halfling, Ogre.
1 point: Vampire, Slann, Underworld Denizens.
2 points: Dark Elf, Elven Union, High Elf, Human, Khemri Tomb Kings, Norse, Chaos Renegades.
3 points: Other races. Max 2 of these teams are allowed in a squad.

The score is calculated based on the first 25 games with each team in the squad.
Scoring works as follows:

A win gives 1 point, a tie gives 0.5 points and a loss gives 0 points.
An additional 2.5 points are awarded per point of unused team budget.
Having a team with the highest points for that race awards 1.5 additional points.
A bonus of 0.5 points is given for every 5 games played per team.

Only one squad per coach and season is allowed. Coaches are expected to stick with their teams even through bad times.

It's a cache issue. shift-reload the page and it'll update. I'll fix the issue tonight and enforce a reload for everyone.

Last year, I set myself a target of 60 points, got 66. This year, I want to set myself a target that's an improvement from that. However, with only four teams in a squad, what actually is an improvement requires a bit of calculation.

If I wanted to get 70 points in the old system, every team would need to get a modified score (adding bonus points for more difficult teams) of 17, constisting of 3 bonus points and 14 wins. That would give 85 points total, minus 15 for the point limit makes 70.

So at the end of the run, on average I would like to see my lizards at 17 points, pro elf and khemri each at 14.5, and ogres at 9.5, for a total score of 55.5

I'm making that public now, let's see how close I'll get.

My target was 15 points. Delighted to have passed that total against the odds!

Hmm. My target is to manage to play 100 BBT3 games, give my opponents fun and challenging games, and to have fun. If I manage all that, any points I get in excess of ten will be gravy. (And I'm eternally grateful that there's no virtual table flip, and no microphone pickups that I need to censor.)

Word of advice... Might worth taking a reroll. My results have been less than pretty for the comedy value!

if you play a game in a Brawl against a Ranked team, does it could towards your 25 BBT games?

(I guess I'll find out soon)

while I'm at it, if you play a Brawl game against a Blackbox team, is the answer the same?

Whoever starts the game first, sets if it's R game or B game.

Brawl against R team, just start the game early and send game name after. Smile

We could rename Black Box "Dark Box". Razz

Im half way there! (Insert here mental tune of livin' on a prayer)

amazing run so far, lovely skill ups in my dark elf team, with 6 doubles, 1 +S and a deceased +S blitzer and +M blitzer.

Slann also have lost a +S blitzer and anything that attemts to replace him dies too

High elves are having a good time with a +M+S catcher

and Khemry saw a +Ag blitzer die and they have nothing epic yet, +M on a thrower is nice though.

overall about 76% winrrate, If I manage to keep it up I might make the top places!!
