I am watching a FC match right now, and they are playing with the default pitch (not the Blackbox pitch). It is not the first FC match i spec, but is the first time I notice it.

The customization of the pitches is one of the best improvements of the new client for me. I think the FC have to be played with its best suit.

I'd thank a lot someone solves it, or replies an explanation.

The Blackbox pitch is only used when two Box coaches are playing each other including in the FUMBBL Cup. If two Ranked coaches play in the FUMBBL cup they will use the default pitch. I think the default pitch will also be used if a Ranked team plays a Box team in the FUMBBL cup.

He doesn't mean the B pitch. Last FC had a custom pitch, which isn't being used this year. You can see it here: https://fumbbl.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&p=620153#620153

Well, when you have a rookie Tournament Admin take over the little things fall through the cracks. These things happen so no big deal, right?

I'd say it was more the complaining about the dark pitch, rather than a rookie tourney admin that is the likely reason behind the non-use of the FC pitch.

Oh, Thank you harvestmouse.

I didn't know anything about complaining about the darkness. It's a really sad thing Sad

Not that I know about. It's 2 tone, so maybe it can't be. I know the negative feedback for dark pitches and icons is restricting. I can't remember Garion doing and edited one, but I'm speculating on all issues here.

I loved the custom pitch idea. Had been hoping for the Khemri pitch for the Crown of Sands, and others. Sure, when you're not used to the pitch design it's kind of harder to discern, say, a player that has already moved from one that hasn't. It took me a couple of games to get used to the Black Box pitch when it was new, too. But still, I think it's a great thing to give the Majors a more special and unique feel. (Plus, the Khemri pitch is really ace.)

There is no option to add the pitch now and I was working on a different element whilst another admin set up the draw. Next tournament that gets set up I will check if there was an option in the first place.

Now if you (general populace) still have a first round game to play, get on with it! Or invite Battlelore or myself to your arrangement threads so we are aware who is trying to get their game played! N.B. Battlelore is in charge of the Top half of the draw which are primarily all first round byes, so you have until 4th of November to play. That said if you are going to Lucca (good luck!) it maybe beneficial to play ahead as much as you can.

Communication is the key to success, if you are struggling to arrange your game talk to us as soon as possible and we will do our utmost to help within the confines of the Tournament.

Take care Dalfort, Tournament Admin Team.

(Edit: I have opened set-up for the FC and there is no pitch setting so everything was correctly followed during the set-up process)

I couldn't spec any FC match since few days ago. I discover today they play on the FC pitch.

Thanks a lot, admins!!
