Would be cool if a couple of nights a week turn limits in Blackbox were set to 2 minutes or something.

Would provide a nice change.

Could have other "special nights" too!

I wasn't aware time limits can even be altered in the new client...

thats an awesome idea, although 2 minutes isnt really speedy tbh, 1 minute would be the way to go imo.

Internet connection is usually decent. But when it slows down, then 1 minute will be a competition of bigger lag-s.

You mean I can take more than 2 minutes normally? Weird!

I haven't made more than a 2 minute turn in years...

Opponents often make 4 minute turns...

I am not sure how this will make things more interesting though.

Maybe something else like regen teams get a chance to use regen or not, but if it fails: RIP!

That's more interesting to me.

Or you could make your own 'blitz' league, and leave blackbox how it is, so I don't randomly log on one day without realising the time is half as much.

remove the 4 min rule for less, and you would definately have one player less in the box, for those events. If it gets permanent, then I would be out of the box permanent. Very easy way to get a smaller group to play the box...

At first I thought you meant the scheduler would run every two minutes. That would be a better idea.

2 minutes sounds good for a special tournament but for Box it would just penalise players who haven't played thousands of matches so aren't playing on autopilot.

While on average for many teams 2 minutes are generally enough, some teams require more time, for example Vampires.

I bet if they played just before dawn the buggers would speed up!
