You've reached the group that gathers those who race for showing they bring variety to blackbox !
Can the box grid (576 different matchups) be filled completely?
How long will it take before YOU can draw another fling team with yours?
Will you finally manage to meet goblins with your underworld team?
This group is meant to track those achievements - just apply to the group (only 1 team need apply) and get in the competition :)
Note : for now data comes from each coach's Home >> Statistics >> Division : blackbox page - and is afterwards simply (and not completely automatically) analysed through a spreadsheet – so do not expect an everyday update :) (NB: Its much easier to update if your Grid contains entries all the way to [X] all you need to do is create a missing race and play once with it or versus the race and it will show up. Dal)

- 2013-5-30 : Access enabled on my internet, very strange but who's complaining :)
I have updated the new members to the group and will endeavour to sort the tables out into Alpha-numeric order as I believe it will be easier to update for me and figured you'd all prefer more updates than order specific tables (also easier to find yourself on the tables too.)

Variety indicator represents the variety of races one coach plays - the higher your indicator, the easiest for oher coaches to fill new grid spots :) Calculation : N = total number of matches played. For each race, you get points for each match played, in the limit of N/24 (so you don't get points for matches that make a race more played than others). Indicator is the sum of these points, divided by N, multiplied by 100 to get a readable indicator.
