Hi everyone

Im new here and im struggling to get any game son Blackbox. I have had one so far but spent quite a few hours activating my team to try and get a match but I seem to not get one. Is there something I need to do to more likely get a game?

Thanks in advance

Hello, all details about Black Box here:

Activating more than one team at different TVs could increase the chances of finding a game.

Again I don't understand how I didn't get a match here when my TV is 1030 yet it favours someone on 1100

Full details of the matching system here:

https://fumbbl.com/p/notes?op=view&id=522

Be patient, your teams are new so the matching range is a bit narrow at the moment:

- Below 3 games played, max TV difference allowed is within 10%.
- For 3 to 9 games played, max TV difference allowed is within 15%.
- For 10 to 29 games played, max TV difference allowed is (15 + (games - 10) * 2)%.
- For 30 or more games, any opponent is allowed.

Over time your teams will grow and you will have more chances to get a game. Smile

Hello Peter! And welcome.

The mechanism explained by MattDakka is there to protect new teams from unfair matchups.
It could make you miss some matchups, but it gives the opportunity to grow to newly created teams.

I would suggest making sure your TEAM is activated, and you are not activating with 0 teams.

When you play a game your team is auto-deactivated. You need to click on the activate button to the left (which opens the team screen) then click on your team to highlight it green, and give a green tick beside it, then click activate again.
