GoPanda2 offers the following time limit choices for the automatic Find Opponent tool:

    1 min & 5 min / 25 stones
    1 min & 7 min / 25 stones
    1 min & 10 min / 25 stones
    1 min & 15 min / 25 stones

I would prefer the last option - 15 minutes - but have had very little success searching for opponents with this setting. I've noticed that the challenges I receive are typically set to 5 minutes and 10 minutes.

Those of you who play regularly on IGS, what settings do you use?

I use the 10 min option. My preferences are similar to yours, but I found it hard to get games at 15min. That said, I've been playing 10 for almost a year now. So, things may have changed.

Hi Drew,

I don't use any of the default settings on IGS or KGS because they're way too fast for me. :)
