So far I have managed to play Blackbox ONCE. Maybe someone can explain why 99% of the time it says the following things:

- Activated - waiting for the draw -> and nothing happens

- 5 coaches have activated! good -> then I see that 2 matches start and I am the 5th one left out

- wait X minutes for the next draw... why can't I do anything for example -> get a spot 100% If I activate early?

Am I doing something wrong? I heard rumours that after u have played 10 games, it gets easier to find a game... but I seem that I can't get anything running - I don't even remember how I got that one game started - any tips are appreciated!

It may be because you have new teams. If everyone else has bigger teams you may be the worst match. Or you may be barred because the TV difference would be too big.

The option to decline "rookie protection" might help. Though maybe the site fears min/maxers.

Create more teams, activate them all.
Young teams may require some time to find a game but once they get a bit developed you should find games quite easily (at least in european timezone).

I feel your pain.
With new teams, give'em a jump start in the Royal Rookie Rumble. Once that starts, it'll give you 1-4 games on that team against roughly close TV new teams as well.
But yeah... keep activating, especially during busy times. You'll eventually get some teams above 15 games and the training wheels are violently ripped off.

For reference, this is the algorithms rookie protection, as described in the help section.

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

3 games played as a coach or 3 games played with 1 team?

This relates to teams, not coaches. Each new team is afforded the same level of "rookie protection"

Hi ianofthewest. Fundamentally I think you have just been unlucky. You have got a game now.though. Maybe muffle doesn't like your player names?

There is also this, which is also rookie protection...

8. Calculate rookie protection factor:
r_games = ( Min(games_1, games_2) + 1 ) / 15, if either team has less than 15 games and the opponent 15 or more
r_games = 1, otherwise
