After a fairly popular forum thread where a concept for a long-term blackbox meta event was brought up, I went ahead and implemented an automated way to track such an event.

Initial interest is fairly high with around 40 coaches signed up at this point, and the teams involved are a fair step away from the typical blackbox choices (23 vampire teams at the time of writing for example).

Now, while the format is fairly game-intensive I think it would be a highly interesting to see more people join in, even if you don't have the time to play all the games that count for score.

While JakeSteel (the original author of the thread linked above) has promised a real life prize, this is of course something that can't be guaranteed, but should interest in the format build up I am sure some sort of prize could be sorted out.

Either way, if you're interested in a high-intensity, highly competitive meta event, feel free to take a look at the details of the format on the Blackbox Trophy page.

Good luck, you'll probably need it!

I don’t really play at all at the moment, so the time investment necessary here is out of my league. However, just wanted to pop by and say that this looks like a great idea and I’m glad the site is supporting it. When CRP was new and Box exclusive, the division felt diverse and it was a lot more fun than when people started to work it out and effectively pick. If this helps shift it back that way, awesome.

I’m sure there is the odd wag looking at this thinking ‘this is great, loads more T2/3 for my minmax beauties to whoop’. Hope that there are upsets aplenty. ;)

Great Idea!

Have just seen it and will join the competition today.

We can use our existing Teams, dont we? I will probably create a new one, but i would like to play with some of my existing teams.
