Thanks Christer & HimalayaP1C7.
A notification pop-up message box to tell a coach they have a match-up would be useful

There should be a basic notification at the top of the page to tell you a game has been scheduled. You’re not the first to mention not seeing it though. Were you on mobile by any chance?

The notification is improved in an imminent update, but I suspect it may not fix the issue if you’re not seeing it at all.

can it not replicate the gamefinder message (modified a little to indicate it was from the box) when an offer is accepted, and just come up and take over the whole screen until you hit start game?

Ah thanks. I am on a old laptop PC and did not spot a notification, I will look out for it next time! A minute after the draw I went to my homepage and saw the match scheduled alongside the team name.

Yes, that’s more or less what should be happening, I hope it’s only a minority that aren’t seeing any message.

My opponent BraincrackGrotsky just told me he didn't see the Box game notification.
Maybe it could be a bug.

So this game I looked for message and saw the golden trophy next to the team name, showing that team was in a 'tournament'. So I knew I must have a match scheduled

Hi,
Thanks for recreating the black box!
It will be something else entirely battling it out against swarms of legend coaches compared to my normal picking routine.

Is there any plan to have a separate ranking for black box? Now I can only see the old black box on my ranking page.
It would also be nice if a match played in black box would be labeled with black box. Now I think it is just labeled competitive.

Somebody should tell him that the Box is up and running again, the Box is not the same without a "Braskyvaction"! Razz

With regards to earlier reports of notification failures, I've experienced this myself trying Blackbox for the first time as a player tonight, and my opponents have confirmed they've seen this too. Will try to figure out how its happening in the next few days, apologies to anyone who misses out on a game due to this.

PLEASE double check the "Rounds" link, and your home page to see if you got a game, after every draw you entered.

Side note, the foolish idealist in me thought that Blackbox would be kind to me after all this work I've put in, I've been thrashed all night long, but is was still a lot of fun.

In another post:
https://fumbbl.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=32357&highlight=
I suggested to display the "Rounds" pop-up at each draw (if not as a pop-up, even a full page could work). That would help to see that a draw has happened even if you are at a certain distance from the PC screen. The old Box worked like that, when a draw happened all the matches were displayed, and there was a direct link to your game. I don't know whether it's technically possible, though. Just a suggestion.

The Blackbox is the place to be! No matter if you lose, win or tie, playing in the Box is already great in itself!!! Very Happy

Hello.
I have experienced this issue several times in the new GF:

the draw takes place but then the site didnt show the game page and no file opens the game.

Happened almost any time (but a couple of games)

Thanks for your work!

When will we be able to activate our old Blackbox teams in blackbox?
